ICC revisits claims of British abuses in Iraq - Daily Observer



The International Criminal Court (ICC) says it has received new information enabling it to reopen a preliminary examination of allegations that British troops conducted "systematic detainee abuse" in Iraq between 2003 and 2008.
A previous examination by the Hague-based court of similar accusations was concluded in 2006 without the launch a full investigation, because the information did not meet the "required gravity threshold".
"I received earlier this year substantial information, much more than what we had in 2006, on alleged crimes that were committed by the UK forces," ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda told reporters at the United Nations.
