Jul 9, 2011 - A public inquiry into the alleged ill-treatment and unlawful killings of Iraqi civilians by British troops is a step closer after a landmark European judgment granted them permission to seek redress in the British High Court.
Public interest lawyers, who are representing hundreds of Iraqis, described yesterday's ruling by the Grand Chamber of the European Court of Human Rights, Europe's highest court, as a historic day for human rights.
The Ministry of Defence will now face questions about the deaths of children like Hanaan Salih Matrood, an 8-year-old girl who died after being shot by a British patrol while she played near her home in 2003.
Jim Duffy, a lawyer, said: "The court's judgment sends a clear message: wherever soldiers or other state agents act, they must do so whilst upholding, not violating, human rights. The violence, religious degradation, sexual abuse and, in many cases, gratuitous killing suffered by our clients must now be confronted." read more>>>
