THE HIGH Court has backed the right of observant Jews to have an autopsy done by scan rather than an invasive procedure. Strictly Orthodox activists obtained an injunction last week to prevent a postmortem on Mordechai Weiss, 74, who died following a fall. The coroner for Inner London North had rejected the use of a scan to establish the cause of death. But the High Court on Wednesday ruled that a scan should be done in the first instance. Berish Berger, president of a London Satmar congregation, said invasive autopsies violated deeply held religious beliefs.
