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.
