Die Briten übertreffen sich selbst

Two Iraqis accused of killing British prisoners of war have been awarded thousands in legal aid to fight being tried in their own country, it emerged today. Faisal Al-Saadoon and Khalaf Mufdhi allegedly killed Sapper Luke Allsopp and Staff Sergeant Simon Cullingworth in cold blood in 2003, at the start of the Iraq war. At the time, then Prime Minister Tony Blair described their deaths as an ‘execution’ and the two men have been held in British custody in Iraq ever since.
Now the Government want to hand them over to Iraq for trial but their lawyers have launched a High Court challenge, claiming this would breach their human rights.
