NGO letter regarding allegations of cover up of evidence of war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan
REDRESS jointly with seven other human rights organisations has published an open letter following a joint investigation by BBC Panorama and Sunday Times which found evidence that the Ministry of Defence and some elements within the Armed Forces had allegedly covered up evidence of war crimes in Iraq and Afghanistan. The letter from REDRESS, Freedom from Torture, Liberty, Rights Watch UK, Human Rights Watch, ECCHR, and the Rendition Project was sent on 20 November 2019 to the main UK political parties.
The letter is available here.
