The “witch hunt” is over - now let justice be done

Iraq map

17 years on from the invasion of Iraq, British soldiers accused of committing war crimes have finally been told that they will not face criminal prosecution.

In one of the most shameful episodes in modern legal history, thousands of British soldiers who served in Iraq from 2003 to 2009 were falsely accused of brutality and abuses against civilians.  Over 4000 claims were made against our armed forces - many of which were fraudulent.

While this saga is approaching its welcome end, a terrible price has been paid by the accused: shattered families, broken marriages, ruined finances, stalled careers, poor mental and physical health.

Hilary Meredith Solicitors is now bringing a legal action on behalf of service personnel and veterans against the Ministry of Defence.

We now know that this whole exercise was built upon deceit. The vast majority of evidence against our troops was fraudulent while the solicitor paid from the public purse to bring. So many of the false claims has been struck off by a professional tribunal of multiple misconduct charges, including dishonesty and lack of integrity.

The MoD has breached the duty of care it owes to service personnel and veterans.

In the words of the Defence Committee - “the MoD must take responsibility for allowing this to happen”.

If you were under false investigation by IHAT, join our action.
