A group of 180 Iraqis will accuse Britain next week for breaching international law by torturing and killing prisoners during the occupation of Iraq over five years.
Lawyers acting for the group will place a file of statements before two judges which details alleged use of 'stress positions' and hooding as well as beating, sexual abuse and religious abuse of illegally detained prisoners.
Some of the claims made in the statements are incredibly shocking with sexual depravity and insults to Islam featuring strongly.
In one case, a soldier is alleged to have masturbated over a prisoner while another is alleged to have committed sodomy with his finger. The High Court will also be told how female interrogators stripped and feigned seduction in exchange for information from prisoners.
