Royal Marines’ Court Martial

Three Royal Marines Court-Martialled for murder of Afghan insurgent

In this case, we were instructed by the prosecution to transcribe the content of utterances and attribute them to Marines in videos made on a helmet-mounted camera.  The camera was worn by ‘Marine B’ and filmed a team on a battle damage assessment after an Apache helicopter engaged an armed Afghan man. Three marines were charged and one, ‘Marine A’ – an experienced sergeant, was found guilty.  The other two marines were acquitted.  An article from the Guardian explains the role of the transcript:
