Guardian – Investigation into alleged abuses by British troops in Iraq could end after lawyer admits professional misconduct – 8 December 2016

The Guardian reports that “[a]controversial investigation into alleged abuses by British troops in Iraq faces being wound up after the lawyer who brought the vast majority of the cases admitted 18 professional misconduct charges.”

“Phil Shiner was tonight called on to apologise to British troops whose lives have been ruined by years of criminal and legal inquiries stemming from his abuse claims.”

“The disgraced human rights lawyer conceded to a disciplinary tribunal that he ‘must be’ struck off after he repeatedly admitted acting ‘recklessly and without integrity’, including by paying an Iraqi fixer tens of thousands of pounds to tout for business.”
