After five years of investigations, the Al-Sweady inquiry in December concluded there were some breaches of the Geneva convention following the battle. But it also ruled allegations of murder and torture were based on ‘deliberate lies, reckless speculation and ingrained hostility’.
Now the government is gearing up to sue law firms for millions of pounds in legal costs and calling for the PIL’s chief lawyer, Phil Shiner, to be struck off.
Or was this for Shiner, et. al. to stretch out gaining fees. I am glad they have the ‘Looser Pays’ plan in the UK.
