Claims the military will be "paralysed" by legal challenges come from a "biased report" which has not properly questioned everyone involved, a leading law firm has claimed.
Senior partner Martyn Day from law firm Leigh Day, which has fought many high profile cases against the MoD, said Policy Exchange's report was "written with the full co-operation of the MoD" but had not consulted his clients.
The report states the customs and practices of Britain's armed forces are now under threat from the law. We would argue that it is the breaking of these laws which is the greatest threat to those who 'risk all for their country'.
This includes not training or equipping soldiers adequately before putting service personnel into a combat zone.
We find it very disconcerting that the Government of law and order seem so intent on desecrating the legal system, ignoring the safeguards the law provides for all individuals and continues to act unlawfully through its many departments including the MoD.
