The families of British soldiers killed on duty in Iraq are fighting for their compensation claim rejection to be over-turned.
In October 2012 the MOD faced claims that it did not provide its soldiers with adequate protection whilst on duty in dangerous situations. Private Phillip Hewett, Private Lee Ellis and Lance Corporal Kirk Redpath were all killed between 2005 and 2007 whilst driving Snatch Land Rovers in Iraq.
Their families have claimed compensation from the MOD on behalf of these men on the grounds that their human rights were infringed. This claim was rejected in October 2012, but is now being appealed.
The case is being heard today and tomorrow, and will end at 4pm on Thursday. City Radio’s Anja will bring you a more in-depth analysis.
