"I was cleared of my "crime" – but not before I'd lost two years of my life in a netherworld of prisons, police, tags and harassment."

Latest from Liberty

In a major victory for our Military Justice campaign, MPs have approved plans to create an effective, transparent and independent Service Complaints Ombudsman, as an amendment to the Armed Forces Bill – based on Liberty-backed proposals – passed its final parliamentary stage. It is only right that the Ombudsman should investigate the substance of a complaint rather than just maladministration.

Military life's different, but that doesn't mean our Armed Forces should settle for second-rate justice.

Sara Ogilvie
Policy Officer

Liberty campaigns to protect basic rights and freedoms through the courts, in Parliament and in the wider community. We do this through a combination of public campaigning, test case litigation, parliamentary work, policy analysis and the provision of free advice and information.
