Two days later Baha Mousa was dead. A post-mortem examination revealed that he had suffered from asphyxiation, and had received at least 93 injuries to his body whilst in the Army’s custody. In 2008 the Secretary of State for Defence announced a Public Inquiry into Baha Mousa’s death and the treatment of those detained with him.Tactical Questioning brings together scenes from the Public Inquiry which examined the shocking events that took place over those two days of detention, and the British Army’s policies towards the treatment of detainees. The production coincided with the publishing of the Inquiry’s findings in Summer 2011.“Chilling yet compelling drama… The words, in every possible way, speak for themselves.” –Evening Standard“Compelling… The facts have the power to shock.” – The Guardian
