Rahmatullah v Ministry of Defence and another; Ali v Ministry of Defence and another; XYZ and others v Ministry of Defence

Practice – Hearing. The Queen's Bench Division made declarations that four of the five claimants' proceedings against the Ministry of Defence and Foreign and Commonwealth Office, concerning treatment by British soldiers in Iraq, were ones in which a closed material application might be made to the court. Disclosure of sensitive material was necessary in the four cases and there was no practical or workable alternative to a closed material procedure.
