Dr Keilloh ‘dishonest’ over death of Iraqi detainee

A former army medic has been found guilty of misleading and dishonest conduct after the death of Iraqi detainee Baha Mousa in 2003.

Dr Derek Keilloh, from Aberdeen, was serving as a medical officer with the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment in Basra.

The GMC’s Medical Practitioners Tribunal Service ruled Dr Keilloh was aware of the injuries but failed to report them or examine other detainees.

Dr Keilloh had told the hearing there were no visible injuries as he tried to treat Mr Mousa before confirming his death.

Mr Mousa had been hooded with a sandbag for nearly 24 hours and suffered 93 injuries, including fractured ribs and a broken nose, during the final 36 hours of his life in the custody of the Queen’s Lancashire Regiment.
