The immediate release of Marine A

Release Marine A & Quash his murder conviction. Marine A has defended his country from a terrorist.

Government response

As this e-petition has received more than 10 000 signatures, the relevant Government department have provided the following response:

The Service Prosecuting Authority, under the authority of the Attorney General, charged Marine A with the murder of an unknown captured insurgent in a legal process that is wholly independent of Government.

After a public trial in front of a Court Martial, at which he was legally represented, Marine A was found guilty of murder, and two other Royal Marines were found not guilty of the offence.

The identity of the victim does not change that verdict.

It would be inappropriate for the Government to intervene in this independent judicial process

This e-petition remains open to signatures and will be considered for debate by the Backbench Business Committee should it pass the 100 000 signature threshold.
