Mordaunt: There should be amnesty for personnel in NI

Defence Secretary Penny Mordaunt has argued that there should be amnesty for British army personnel serving in Northern Ireland who have committed crimes during the course of their duties. The Conservative MP added that there needs to be an end to the "chilling effect" this issue is having, which is "plaguing veterans who really deserve our care and respect". This comes after cases arising in Northern Ireland were left out of the proposed legislation to ensure veterans and serving personnel are not subjected to repeated investigations on historical operations.
