Nobody -- including Lugovoi's lawyers -- expressed a wish for it.

I can see why Lugovoi wouldn't want a British jury -- the James Bond stereotypes might take a bit of breaking. That doesn't mean it wouldn't be in the public interest, though. As you say repeatedly, most of the interested parties can be presumed to share an interest in keeping certain things out of the public eye, and a jury arguably makes it harder to sweep things under the carpet.

What's the next step now? Nothing happens till the actual inquest starts, or will there be newsflow in the interim?
