Judge Advocate General 'mishandled' Marine A trial

His Honour Judge Jeff Blackett
Further snippets of the Criminal Cases Review Commission report into the trial and conviction of Sergeant Alexander Blackman (aka Marine A) have emerged in The Telegraph, a paper with quite remarkable access to the document.

The article, which can be found here, criticises His Honour Judge Jeff Blackett, the Judge Advocate General, for failing to direct the board that the alternative verdict of manslaughter was available to them. 

The first part of Blackman's new appeal is due to be heard by the Court Martial Appeal Court in late January or early February. 

Sentencing remarks can be found here and the recent bail and case management decision may Ben found here. 

The appeal and satellite litigation continue.
