JUSTICE urges Supreme Court to extend human rights protection to UK troops

On Monday morning, the Supreme Court will begin a four day hearing set to determine whether the protection of the European Convention on Human Rights extends to the activities of UK troops overseas.

JUSTICE has intervened in this case to urge the Supreme Court to find that the relationship between the UK and its forces means that they carry the protection of UK law with them overseas, including the human rights protections in the Human Rights Act 1998.  The anomalies created by any other conclusion would be extraordinary.
