London, July 6 (ANI): British weapons inspector David Kelly was writing a book exposing highly damaging government secrets before his mysterious death.

He was intending to reveal that he warned Prime Minister Tony Blair there were no weapons of mass destruction anywhere in Iraq weeks before the British and American invasion.

Dr Kelly was also intending to lift the lid on a potentially bigger scandal, his own secret dealings in germ warfare with the apartheid regime in South Africa.

He wanted his story to come out, reports the Daily Express.Dr Kelly was found dead in woods near his Oxfordshire home on July 17 2003.

His apparent suicide came two days after he was interrogated in the -Commons over his behind-the-scenes role in exposing the flaws in the "sexed-up" Number 10 dossier which justified Britain going to war with Iraq.

Conspiracy theorists have claimed he was murdered. (ANI)
