Details

The Inspector concluded in Part 1 of his report into the death of Mr Ahmed Ali that, having been detained by members of the British Forces in Iraq for looting, and while still in their custody, Mr Ali drowned in the Shatt al Basra canal on 8 May 2003. The soldiers had forced Mr Ali into the water and failed to go to his assistance when he floundered, thereby causing his death.

Part 2 of the Inspector’s report will examine the wider circumstances surrounding Mr Ali’s death, including the cases of any other Iraqis who allegedly died in similar circumstances. It will include consideration of the extent to which any practice of placing looters into water as a deterrent or punishment was known about and/or sanctioned by the military chain of command.

Part 2 of the report will be published on our reports page in due course.
