UK government back in court over legality of Iraq invasion

Next month, on the 6th November Military Families Against the War go to court in a bid for a full public inquiry into why the UK went to war in Iraq.

Earlier this year the Court of Appeal ruled they were entitled to apply for a judicial review of the government’s refusal to hold an independent inquiry.

Peter Brierley, whose son Shaun died in Iraq March 2003 said:

“At last our case will be heard in full, I am convinced that my son died for no good reason as he should not have been sent to Iraq in the first place. I am looking forward to hearing the three defendants having to explain how they justify the invasion.”
