‘You Have Treated us With Contempt’: Soldiers’ Families Demand Iraq Inquiry Deadline

Relatives of 29 soldiers killed during the Iraq war have called on Sir John Chilcot to publish his long-awaited report on the UK’s role in the conflict before the end of the year or face legal consequences.
In a letter sent on Monday, lawyers acting on behalf of the families, wrote:

 “In the absence of any reasonable, transparent and full explanation why you cannot, we expect you to write to the prime minister within one month with a date for publication, which should be by the end of the year."

“By your own admission, now Maxwellization is over, there is nothing to prevent you doing this. If you fail to do so, we will continue with our legal challenge.”
