Nothing to see here.
Who's the key person who carried out the post mortems,allegedly, and started the paper chain?

Jesuit educated Anthony Busuttil from Malta
Anything else on his CV? Certainly. Lockerbie.

Can we believe anything a pathologist writes or says? Absolutely not.

Can we believe anything Busuttil says? Absolutely not.

Busuttil was sent in to bat earlier in 2016, the 20th anniversary of the Dunblane event, to bolster up the official narrative.

Surely a parent or close relative would be the one to identify a victim? But no, it was all signed off by Busuttil.
Busittil -
“I saw this black-clad body.
"It looked like Mussolini from a distance, with a black shirt and combat ­trousers.
"We were told that he’d shot himself and was dead, and we gave him a wide berth — not because of feelings of revulsion, but it was feared that he was booby-trapped and handling his body could lead to a worse horror.”
Prof Busuttil had worked at the scene of the Lockerbie bombing eight years earlier.
But he says Dunblane proved so much more harrowing. He and his team had the harrowing task of identifying the tragic children. They used school photos and the name tags sewn into their clothes.
Prof Busuttil says: “This was vital. The parents were devastated and traumatised. We had to be certain that everyone would be shown the body of their own child.
“I’d been told early in the day that the parents had made two requests — no post mortem examinations and they wanted their children back.
"They wanted to see them and be able to hold them. We managed to deliver those small things for them.”
He added: “Every one of the parents accepted the opportunity not only to see their child in the mortuary at Stirling Royal, but to touch them, hold their hands, stroke their hair, and kiss their faces.
“We saw every parent. We tried to answer all their questions to help them understand what had happened.
“But in that situation, there can be no good news. You might be able to reassure them that it was quick, but their child is gone.
“However, we felt it was vital to give them all the information they wanted.”
He reveals that some parents wanted to know the full awful details of their child’s final moments, while others couldn’t bear to hear the heartbreaking accounts.
Prof Busuttil said: ­“Sometimes a father wanted to know everything, and the mother couldn’t cope and didn’t want to hear. And sometimes it was the other way round.
“One parent asked how many times their child had been shot, and the answer caused them a lot of distress, with the other parent saying they’d rather not have known.
“We realised early on in the process that we needed support from the casualty unit.
“We had parents collapsing, fainting, and others clutching their chests.”
When the professor’s work at Stirling Royal Infirmary was over, he went back to his home in Edinburgh to be with [color="red]wife Angela [/color]— but said nothing about the massacre in which a total of 16 children and their teacher Gwen Mayor were killed.
He explains: “It’s been an unwritten rule throughout our marriage that my work and my home life have to stay separate.
“I have to be able to switch off when I get home. It is not the place to discuss what I’ve been doing.
“People ask how I debrief myself after a traumatic incident, and I can only say I’m blessed with the ability to clear my head to a large extent when I am home.
“I’ve had colleagues who have managed for 20 or 30 years and then broken down.

“One chap in his 50s fell apart and had to retire after the murder of a girl of 16 — so I never took anything for granted.

“But I was lucky. I never had trouble sleeping and I didn’t have nightmares about my work.
Quite a tightly controlled event with a very small cast. Anything happen at work today, Anthony? Nothing much, Angela, same old stuff.

The strange ITV interview [video in Mirror link] is with a smiling Alison "Ali" Ross who lost her sister Joanna at the event.

Just the one interview by Busuttil, the rest syndicated

Other "witnesses" rounded up by the BBC for the anniversary
Isabel Wilson
Isabel Wilson does not say her daughter Mhairi MacBeath died or was killed.
Instead she tells people: "She was murdered. Thomas Hamilton murdered her."
She said: "That is the one regret I have. I'd like her mother to have been with her when she died.

Ron Taylor - head teacher
We don't understand it and I guess we never will."

Two decades later, Mr Taylor said the guilt still lives with him.
He said: "There's no way we could have adequately prepared for what happened.

"And yet, I felt enormous guilt. More than just a survivor's guilt.

"It was my school. I felt violated, I felt I should have been able to do more. And that guilt lives with me today."

Amy Hutchison - pupil
The five-year-old had been shot in the leg and she was rushed to hospital, where she would spend the next six weeks
"I just remember my leg turning to jelly and falling to the floor....Doctors later suggested skin grafts to cover the scars on her leg from the gunshot wound. She said that "wasn't an option."
"These are my scars, they're on my body, they're my story," she said.
"I'm not going to hide them, I'm not ashamed of them.
[were they shown in the BBC programme?]
