Dooe it really matter at this stage, how he died whether he succombed to a gun shot or to a sharp instrument, the FACT remains he was MURDERED in cold blood on the orders of someone higher up not the yakkos who carried it out, but whoever higher up who ordered the murder, the people need the truth.

Who was/were the JMO or Judicial Medical the Team that did the PM and decided it was a gun shot injury when it was was a sharp instrument injury?
