Solicitor Simon McKay is representing four of the six families of military policemen who died in Iraq in 2003. He talks about claims of new evidence coming to light that could prompt a fresh inquest into the deaths.
The families of four military policemen murdered in Iraq, including two from the Midlands, are demanding a fresh inquest into their deaths after claiming new evidence has come to light.
They want the original inquest verdicts from eight years ago quashed.
Six soldiers, including Lance Corporal Thomas Keys from Solihull, and Corporal Russell Aston from Swadlincote, died in 2003 when the mob attacked a police station.
The lawyer representing four of the troops has written to the Attorney General Dominic Grieve suggesting they had fresh evidence which meant a new inquest was 'necessary and desirable in the interests of justice'.
