Briton in court over Iraq murders
Posted by defensebaseactcomp on April 6, 2010
A British security contractor who could face the death penalty over the murder of two colleagues in Iraq is due to appear in court.
Former paratrooper Danny Fitzsimons, 29, is accused of shooting dead fellow ArmorGroup employees Paul McGuigan and Darren Hoare, both 37, in Baghdad’s high-security Green Zone in August last year.
His family says he was suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) as a result of his experiences serving with the Army in the former Yugoslavia and as a private security guard in Iraq. Original here
