SPLI investigations into the remaining allegations made by Iraqi civilians of serious criminal behaviour by UK Armed Forces in Iraq.
Service Police Legacy Investigations (SPLI), led by a senior Royal Navy Police Officer is meeting the government’s legal duty to investigate the remaining allegations made by Iraqi civilians of serious criminal behaviour by UK armed forces in Iraq.
In February 2017, the Secretary of State for Defence announced that the Iraq Historic Allegations Team (IHAT) would close and any remaining Iraq legacy investigations would be reintegrated into the service police system. SPLI took over these remaining investigations at the beginning of July 2017. Cases that were closed, or in the process of being closed, before, and up to, 30 June 2017 will be updated on the former IHAT website.
What work is SPLI carrying out?
Service personnel, made up of Royal Navy Police and Royal Air Force Police, will consider any remaining legacy investigations which look at the alleged behaviour of UK armed forces in Iraq from 2003 to 2009.
