MOD decisions on alleged human rights breaches during Operation Telic

Decisions on Ministry of Defence investigations into alleged breaches of Article 2 and Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) during military operations in Iraq.

The UK government is obliged to investigate credible or arguable breaches of Article 2 and Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) that arise from UK military operations in Iraq. In some cases, this obligation will require a further inquiry upon completion of the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT) or the Service Police Legacy Investigations (SPLI) criminal investigation.

Summary information on the MOD’s decisions and the reasons for them can be found in the Article 2 and Article 3 documents on this page.
