THE Ministry of Defence has caved in to pressure to transform the way it probes possible war crimes.
A judge will consider if military police have the skills for war zone investigations.
Sources said Red Caps were ill-equipped to cope with complex probes in conflict zones.
The MoD said the judge-led inquiry “will consider whether we have the skills and processes in place for all elements of the investigative process”.
Defence Secretary Ben Wallace said: “Credible allegations must be investigated quickly and efficiently. This review will help future-proof investigations and provide greater certainty to both victims and service personnel.”
