That's right, the courts have jurisdiction after a House of Lords (highest court) ruling last June in the case of Baha Mousa, who died in custody with 93 injuries, that the European Convention on Human Rights had extra territorial application to protect prisoners detained by the military in Iraq. Attorney General Lord Goldsmith had advised the government otherwise but not for the first time his advice was based upon a misunderstanding of the law. I imagine that the courts wouldn't be invoked unless there was a failure to hold a military trubunal but I'd have to check that point.<br><br>km<br><br>
