A part-time soldier appeared before a court martial yesterday in relation to alleged fake pictures published in the Daily Mirror which purported to show British troops abusing an Iraqi prisoner.
The charges against Pte Stuart Mackenzie, 25, of Haslingden, Lancs, a member of the Lancastrian and Cumbrian Volunteers Territorial Army unit, were not read out at a preliminary hearing at Catterick Garrison, North Yorks. It will reconvene at a date to be fixed.
Apart from the initial headlines that big over here in Oz we have been well out of the loop on the follow up action. What did this clown think he was doing. Did he hate his fellow squaddies and his own Army so much that this was a deliberate action? Or are we looking at a stunt gone way out of control?
Either way no one is going to serve with him. D*ckhead.
he got offred 15000 pounds for story if he could prove allegations of prisoner abuse .So went away to fake up some photos .should have done it when he was out there locals would have co operative for a few dollars
had to delete a couple of photos when i went to get film printed might have had some explaining to do
