Dr. Derek Keilloh, who is being investigated by
the Medical Practitioners’ Tribunal Service for his role in the death of Baha
Mousa, will see his Fitness to Practice Panel reconvened this weekend. The Panel’s
determination on facts will be announced on Sunday, 16 December and the
investigation into complaints that Dr Keilloh’s fitness to practice has been
impaired as a result of misconduct will continue until next Friday, 21 December.
Baha Mousa died on 15 September 2003 after
three days of vicious abuse at Battle Group Main, the main base of 1st
Queen’s Lancashire Regiment (1QLR). Dr Keilloh was the Regimental Medical
Officer at Battle Group Main and was responsible for the welfare of Baha Mousa
and the other Iraqi civilians detained with him.
At the public inquiry into Baha Mousa’s death,
Dr Keilloh said that he had not noticed extensive injuries on Baha Mousa’s body
and had only noticed a small trace of dried blood under his nostril.
The final report of the chair of the Inquiry, Sir William Gage, recorded that
Baha Mousa had sustained 93 different external injuries including “multiple bruises and grazes situated on the
head, neck and torso and the upper and lower limbs.”
