Baha Mousa doctor Derek Keilloh struck off after 'repeated dishonesty'
The Guardian reports (December 21st): A former army doctor found guilty of misconduct by medical watchdogs over the death of an Iraqi man who was tortured to death by British soldiers has been struck off the register.
Derek Keilloh was found to be unfit to continue to practise after a panel concluded that he acted in a dishonest way after the death of Baha Mousa in September 2003, and had failed to protect other men who were being mistreated at the same time.
MoD pays out millions to Iraqi torture victims
The Guardian reports (December 20th): The Ministry of Defence has paid out £14m in compensation and costs to hundreds of Iraqis who complained that they were illegally detained and tortured by British forces during the five-year occupation of the south-east of the country.
Hundreds more claims are in the pipeline as Iraqis become aware that they are able to bring proceedings against the UK authorities in the London courts.http://www.guardian.co.uk/law/2012/dec/20/mod-iraqi-torture-victims
