High Court/Baha Mousa case

Asked about the ruling by the High Court for the Government to hold an inquiry into the death of Iraqi Baha Mousa, the PMOS pointed out that the Government had won 5 out of the 6 cases. He also said that a separate criminal case was being considered by the Army Prosecution Authority, and therefore could not comment further for obvious legal reasons.

Asked if the Government took the same "scathing" view as the judges that Iraq was not yet ready to have the European Convention on Human Rights applied, the PMOS asked the journalist if he really expected him to comment on a current court case that may go to appeal.
