The MOD announced today that a Public Inquiry will be held into the death of Baha Mousa, who died in British custody in September 2003.
The Defence Secretary, Des Browne, said:
"A Public Inquiry into the death of Baha Mousa is the right thing to do. It will reassure the public that we are leaving no stone unturned in investigating his tragic death. The Army has nothing to hide in this respect and is keen to learn all the lessons it can from this terrible incident."
