A Special Forces commando told last night how he was hounded out after being falsely accused of killing three civilians during a fierce battle in Afghanistan. The Special Boat Service sergeant resigned in disgust following a year-long Royal Military Police (RMP) investigation into the deaths of two women and a child. The commando told The Mail on Sunday how he was questioned four times by military police, who challenged his testimony and the post-battle reports signed off by UK commanders. The sergeant was eventually exonerated but as the experience left him feeling ‘harassed’, he chose to end his distinguished 19-year career.
All part of the Afghanistan witch hunt aka Operation Northmoor.
Still feel like joining up for Queen and country?
