Iraq abuse inquiry was a 'cover-up', whistleblower tells court

December 13, 2012 by legitgov

Iraq abuse inquiry was a 'cover-up', whistleblower tells court 11 Dec 2012 A former investigator into allegations that British troops abused Iraqi prisoners resigned because she did not want to be implicated in "a cover-up", the high court has heard. Louise Thomas, 45, left the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT) in July because she thought it was not a genuine investigation but a "face-saving inquiry", she told the court on Tuesday. Her evidence came at a preliminary hearing in advance of a judicial review, expected next month, into the government's refusal to hold a public inquiry into allegations of mistreatment of Iraqis between 2003 and 2008.
