This release is further to the release of earlier today detailing the successful challenge to the independence of the Royal Military Police.
Ali Zaki Mousa, the lead Claimant, said today:
I am delighted with the victory because I always believed that the Royal Military Police would be biased in its investigations of the soldiers. It is part of the army.
When we suffered a lot under the British Army and witnessed a catalogue of abuses, we had the impression that that is what Britain is. But thanks to the efforts of our lawyers and the victories in the courts this has changed our impression. We can see that there are the actions of the British soldiers and that is one thing; then there is British society and that is something else. It has restored our confidence in the British people.
