War on trial

August 3, 2009

Lance Corporal Joe Glenton of the Royal Logistic Corps has faced a preliminary hearing at a martial court in Wiltshire today. He is accused of desertion, but the trial will also see the legality of the war in Afghanistan brought into question. Mr O’Donoghue told the court that he may call an expert witness to give evidence on the lawfulness of war. Joe gives his reasons for refusing to return to Afghanistan here…

Judge Advocate Alastair McGrigor adjourned the case to 4 September for another preliminary hearing.
