17 July 2011 - Defence Secretary Liam Fox will be challenged at the Court of Appeal tomorow over his refusal to launch a public inquiry into the alleged torture of Iraqis by British troops.
The three-day hearing will consider the lawfulness of the refusal in the light of 142 allegations made by Iraqi civilians.
The lead claimant in the case, Ali Zaki Mousa, was detained by British forces between 24 November 2006 and December 2007.
He was held at British detention and interrogation facilities at Basra Airport and Shaibah Logistics Base.
He claims he was held in solitary confinement for 12 days, stripped naked, deprived of sleep, held in stress positions, beaten and suffered a broken jaw.
He also alleges he was threatened with rape and subjected to such lengthy interrogations that he collapsed.
Mr Fox has said he accepts that a public inquiry may be necessary but that a decision on any such inquiry ought to await the outcome of criminal investigations by the Royal Military Police in the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (Ihat). read more>>>
