While the World is sleeping : Vote passes on bill that “legalises war crimes and torture”

 

A vote on the Overseas Operations (Service Personnel and Veterans) Bill, that introduces a five-year time limit to prosecutions of almost all crimes for soldiers serving overseas, passed in the House of Commons.
