‘On Saturday, the Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service (MPTS) ruled that Derek Keilloh was guilty of dishonest conduct in 2003, when 26-year-old hotel receptionist Baha Mousa died after being arrested in Basra, the Guardian reported.

Mousa was hooded with a sandbag for 24 hours, sustained 93 separate injuries including fractured ribs and a broken nose during the final 36 hours of his life in the custody of the 1st Battalion, Queen’s Lancashire Regiment.

The MPTS noted that Keilloh, then a 28-year-old regimental medical officer, was called to a detention center at the British Army HQ in Basra in September 2003 where the Iraqi hotel receptionist was unconscious after a violent incident with soldiers.’
