Families of four Royal Military policemen killed by an Iraqi mob are to bring a human rights claim against the Ministry of Defence.


Families of four Royal Military policemen killed by an Iraqi mob are to bring a human rights claim against the Ministry of Defence.

Corporals Russell Aston and Simon Miller and Lance Corporals Benjamin McGowan Hyde and Tom Keys were killed when crowds attacked a police station in Majar al-Kabir in June 2003.

Their families hope the legal action will trigger a public inquiry into their deaths.

The families previously expressed dissatisfaction with the inquests and board of inquiry probe into the killings.

Two other military policemen, Sergeant Simon Hamilton-Jewell and Corporal Paul Long, were also killed in the attack.

“These soldiers’ deaths have been brushed under the carpet. It is almost like the Ministry of Defence lost six pieces of hardware, not six lives,” said Reg Keys of Solihull, father of L/Cpl Keys.
