"...at that stage, we believed in the justice system and that somebody would be held responsible for supplying her.’"

Sandra now knew that her daughter had returned to the university halls with flatmate Kavir Kalliecharan to collect her ID, which she’d forgotten. Together, they took ketamine in his room. When police were called after her lifeless body was found at 5am, sniffer dogs discovered weighing scales, zip-lock bags, a vapouriser, cannabis grinder and three types of drug — ketamine, cannabis and MDMA — in his room.
The son of an associate professor in health policy at Leeds University, he was arrested and led from the block in handcuffs. Sandra thought they’d throw the book at him.
Reader, they did not:
But, as his trial approached last year, she learned he was pleading guilty to three counts of possession. He was not charged with supplying ketamine to Jeni or manslaughter. Instead, Sandra heard on a video link to his trial, he was accusing Jeni of providing the ketamine.
Because a naive girl from rural Northern Ireland would know where to score on her first night at university, wouldn't she? Did she supply all the paraphenalia too? 
Magistrates gave Kalliecharan a two-year conditional discharge in June last year and he was ordered to pay £85 costs and a paltry £21 victim surcharge.

Piling insult on top of heartbreak.  

The coroner’s ruling this week that the ketamine had been supplied by ‘another’ was a victory of sorts.

A hollow one.

Methinks " a naive girl from rural Northern Ireland" might just know more than an undergrad fresher from an earlier generation ... but obviously not enough to avoid dying from it.

I suppose the coroner was partially correct in that the ketamine was supplied by another, to Kalliecharan, but this waste of oxygen did supply it to this young girl, she died, as a result, and he should have been found guilty of manslaughter. I wonder if the exalted position held by his father, and the subsequent pressure placed on the Police and the university, had any affect on the official findings. As a Police officer, I often said that there is a huge gap between the law and justice and this tragic farce amplifies that viewpoint. No doubt, this predatory, drug dealing, scumbag will go on to a glittering career, making his father proud, possibly even following in his footsteps in the health industry (you couldn't really make it up).
My condolences to the family of this young lady and a warning to any other young women who meets this obnoxious shite.

So, yet again a monkey is too "connected" to suffer punishment! Large lads, a few grand in cash, " I dont want this jigaboo appearing anywhere but the obituary column"
They used to know how to take care of business in Norn Iron.

".. but obviously not enough to avoid dying from it."

A genuine example of the saying 'a little knowledge is a dangerous thing'.

"...he should have been found guilty of manslaughter. I wonder if the exalted position held by his father, and the subsequent pressure placed on the Police and the university, had any affect on the official findings."

I'd bet my shirt on it!

"They used to know how to take care of business in Norn Iron."

Well said, everything you have said is true, may justice somehow eventually prevail

If justice was a thing in this country, Norn Iron tactics wouldn't be required
