Medhurst: Britain has legalised rape, torture and war crimes by the state

Across Britain people are protesting against a proposed bill which restricts that very right, but two other laws have already passed, allowing undercover agents to commit crimes, and giving British troops immunity from war crimes.

At the heart of current protests in Britain is the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill. This controversial new law, dubbed the “anti-protest bill,” would impose severe restrictions on protests and slap those who fail to comply with harsh sentences. The ‘Kill the Bill’ movement, a coalition of activist groups, seeks to stop this legislation while it’s still in passage through Parliament. It sets an incredibly dangerous precedent for civil liberties, undermining any supposed democracy the UK may have. In addition, in recent months the United Kingdom has passed two other laws, one which allows undercover agents to commit any crime, and another which gives British troops immunity from war crimes prosecutions. These have gone largely unnoticed by the British public.
