Scottish independence and military justice

Proposals for an independent military justice system are long overdue and would secure real justice for people who have been abused and injured or killed unjustly by the armed forces – particularly young recruits.

Rory Steel, a spokesperson for Young Scots for Independence, quoted here; a December 2017 independence-oriented defense and security white paper by Garry Macdonald notes that an independent Scotland would need "[a]n independent military justice system to ensure discipline,
the legality of orders and appropriate conduct for members of
the armed forces."
