‘It was a racket, all of it’: Iraqi refugee admits faking hundreds of compensation claims against British troops

An Iraqi refugee has admitted arranging hundreds of fake abuse claims against British soldiers in Iraq.

Basim Al-Sadoon, 37, said the racket he was involved in was aimed at winning payouts from the Ministry of Defence.

Mr Al-Sadoon ran an office in Basra where he handled accusations made by locals against the British Army.
