The Al-Sweady Public Inquiry: request for information
Battle of Danny Boy, near Majar Al Kabir and Camp Abu Naji, Iraq, 14-15 May 2004
Iraqis who were detained during the battle of Danny Boy, and the families of some Iraqis who died, have alleged that British soldiers mistreated and unlawfully killed detainees at Camp Abu Naji. The MOD takes the view that there is no credible evidence to support these claims. An independent public inquiry has been set up to investigate the allegations and establish the truth.
If you have any information about the treatment of the Iraqis detained first at Camp Abu Naji on 14 and 15 May 2004 and then at Shaibah Logistics Base until 23 September 2004, or about the deaths of those Iraqis whose bodies were returned to their families after the battle of Danny Boy, then please contact Tom Foley at the Al-Sweady Public Inquiry on 020 7025 4478 by 31 October 2012.
Tom can also provide you with details of how to get free legal assistance, arranged by the MOD.
