Attn HON Thersa May .Prime Minister

We refer to you statement below and appreciate that you have provided the armed forces with additional protection in combating

the faceless terrorism indiscriminately killing civilians. BUT, we are at a loss to comprehend the British policy vis a vis Sri Lankan forces which

helped to get rid of the Tamil Tigers, the world’s most brutal terrorists who were responsible for killing over 100,000 Sri Lankans.

Your government is pursuing the Sri Lankan armed forces via biased UNHRC resolution. Is it because the British lives are more important than Sri Lankan civilian lives?

Our troops must know we are on their side, says Theresa May(British PM) as she insists

armed forces SHOULD NOT be hounded with ‘vexatious’ Human Rights Act claims on the battlefield 

Lawyers will no longer be able to chase British soldiers with ‘vexatious’ claims of human rights abuses,

Theresa May (pictured this morning) said as she told troops: ‘We are on your side.'”

Our troops must know we are on their side, says Theresa May as she insists armed forces SHOULD NOT be hounded with ‘vexatious’ Human Rights Act claims on the battlefield

  • Human rights laws will be suspended on battlefield, May announces today  
  • It will finally end the industry of vexatious claims against British  troops
  • PM says it will give British troops the ‘confidence when they go out into combat for us that they are able to do what is necessary to keep us safe’

Lawyers will no longer be able to chase British soldiers with ‘vexatious’ claims of human rights abuses, Theresa May said today as she told troops: ‘We are on your side.’

She announced human rights laws will finally be suspended on the battlefield to end the industry of the claims.

The Prime Minister said it will give British troops the ‘confidence when they go out into combat for us that they are able to do what is necessary to keep us safe’.

The plans won an enthusiastic welcome from Conservative members as Defence Secretary Michael Fallon unveiled them at the party conference in Birmingham today.

Under the measures, the Government will free armed forces from two specific articles of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) before sending them into battle.

These two – Article 2, the right to life, and Article 5, the right to liberty – have been exploited by lawyers to launch thousands of complaints against UK soldiers.

They have also been used as the basis for compensation claims against the British taxpayer.

Defending the move this morning, Mrs May said: ‘Our troops, our men and women of our armed forces go out there and put their lives on the line in order to defend us.

‘They do things that most people wouldn’t be willing to do in terms of that, in terms of going out and potentially paying the ultimate sacrifice for us.
