He accused the Iraqis of being involved in a "deliberate and co-ordinated attempt... to deceive the inquiry into believing UK troops had tortured and killed prisoners."
He accused the soldiers of "inhuman and degrading treatment of wounded, broken and helpless young men who were utterly at the mercy of their military handlers and interrogators. Trained techniques were used to break them down or condition them, as it was called."
