    Iraqis Cleared Of Army Red Caps Murders

    Five Iraqis accused of murdering six British Royal Military Police officers in 2003 have been set free, the Ministry of Defence has confirmed.

    A judge ruled five of seven suspects arrested earlier this year had no case to answer, according to letters Armed Forces Minister Nick Harvey sent to the victims' families.
    Two remaining suspects are now expected to face prosecution over the deaths, according to Mr Harvey.
    He said: "The judge indicated that, pending confirmation of the identity of one of the remaining two suspects in custody, both will face trial."


    The Army Red Caps died after a 400-strong Iraqi mob attacked a police station in Majar al Kabir in June 2003.
    The six RMP servicemen were:
    :: Sergeant Simon Hamilton-Jewell, 41, from Chessington, Surrey.
    :: Corporal Russell Aston, 30, from Swadlincote, Derbyshire.
    :: Corporal Paul Long, 24, of South Shields, Tyne and Wear.
    :: Lance Corporal Benjamin McGowan Hyde, 23, from Northallerton, North Yorkshire.
    :: Lance Corporal Tom Keys, 20, from Bala, North Wales.
    :: Corporal Simon Miller, 21, from Washington, Tyne and Wear.
    Relatives of the victims have fought a long campaign for justice.

    A court in Baghdad issued warrants for the arrests in February 2006, but it seemed there had been little progress.
    However, in 2008, Iraqi interior minister Jawad al Boulani vowed to do his best to track down the killers after three of the families implored Iraq's government to find the culprits.
    An MoD spokesman said: "The UK Government is committed to seeing the killers brought to justice."

    There is no will in Iraq to prosecute anyone for this.

    Yes, but not just in Iraq...these guys were ill equipped by the Wankers who lead from their desks in Downing Street, Parliament and Whitehall, the MOD fat cats who bleat about how committed they are now....after the event.

    Its a tragedy they weren't committed before they cut back on equipment that was crucial for the troups to carry out their work with reduced personal risk by giving them the neccessary tools they needed to do their jobs properly.


    Gordon the Moron and his band of thieves are as responsible as the killers because while these guys put their lives on the line, Gordon the Moron was criminally wasting the UK's reserves and it tax payers money (feathering their own nests) only to let these men and many other men down badly but cutting back on neccessary military equipment.

    There should be an independant enquiry and that fat f*cking one eyed moron should be held accountable!

    Blair set up the UK with lies but has managed a massive income out of it from US companies and US backed governments.

    Talk about blood money. British troops lost and who knows have many civilians killed so that grabbing bastard could line his pockets.

    Every coffin is directly down the that silly bastard taking us into an illegal war based on lies.
    Be happy dudes. It's a lot more fun than crying.
