British soldiers 'tortured and murdered 20 Iraqis, then covered it up with firefight claim'


www.dailymail. co.uk

British soldiers tortured and murdered up to 20 Iraqis in cold blood, the High Court was told yesterday. It happened after a three-hour gun battle at an Army checkpoint near Basra, a lawyer claimed. - Rabinder Singh said a group of local men were taken prisoner and transported to an Army camp where they were beaten with a rusty tent pole, punched, slammed against walls, denied water, blasted with loud music and forced to strip naked in the presence of a woman – a humiliation for Muslim men.

The next day, he said, only nine were still alive – and 20 corpses were returned to their families. One was teenager Hamid Al-Sweady. The Army claims the men all died in the initial gun battle, but Hamid's uncle Khuder Al-Sweady and five survivors of the incident yesterday began a court battle in London to win an independent inquiry.

The tyrants in government do not care about human-rights. They want power. They enjoy harming innocent people (especially children) without hesitation. We must fight against the criminal-government & their minions. They will not stop, until we arrest them.

Police-officers do not serve the general-population. They serve the tyrants, who victimize the innocent & terrify the masses. We must defeat our common foes!

Phil Shiner (well known for ambulance chasing against the forces) took this case up a while ago, he couldn't prove anything then and I predict that the same will happen this time.

The incident was investigated by the Royal Military Police and the Red Cross. Both found no signs of abuse. What’s more is that all Iraqi’s involved were all interviewed after the incident but no claims of torture were made until a couple of years later.
