star this property answer text <p>It has. The Arrangement which the UK signed with Bahrain concerning naval basing also changed the jurisdiction arrangements that apply to UK military personnel who are serving in Bahrain. From 1994 until 2014, the UK had exclusive jurisdiction over military personnel in Bahrain. This changed when the basing Arrangement was signed. As a result there is now concurrent jurisdiction, which recognises that both UK and Bahraini law applies to UK military personnel serving in Bahrain. The Arrangement contains a mechanism to allow the UK and Bahraini authorities to determine which set of national laws should be applied to a member of the UK Armed Forces if it is alleged that they have committed a crime.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>UK personnel in Iraq perform a number of roles. This includes supporting UK and coalition airstrikes against ISIL in Iraq. Iraqi security forces are able to communicate with coalition aircraft through coalition HQs including the Iraqi Joint Operating Centre in Baghdad. Coalition aircraft in Iraq either engage in dynamic targeting, for example responding to Iraqi forces under fire, or in deliberate targeting, when for example attacking previously identified ISIL positions prior to an advance by Iraqi security forces.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Prior to the start of General Purpose Force training on 11 June 2014, the UK had several discussions with the Libyan government about the selection and vetting of the Libyan trainees. These conversations also included representations from the United States and Italy.</p><p> </p><p>The Libyan government provided trainee candidates who had been through Libyan vetting and selection processes. These candidates were then subject to additional UK vetting in Libya, to ensure that those selected met Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Ministry of Defence and Home Office requirements on security, immigration, medical, physical, literacy and numeracy criteria; in addition, the selected cohort comprised a suitable geographic representation of Libya. Home Office visa processes included checks against UK criminal databases and a visa declaration by all trainees which confirmed that they held no criminal convictions or charges in the UK or elsewhere.</p><p> </p><p>We are not aware that any of those candidates who passed UK screening had criminal convictions or faced charges at that time in the UK or elsewhere.</p><p> </p><p>During the course of training the Libyan General Purpose Force (GPF) we are aware of sixteen individuals being arrested. Of these five have been remanded in custody while facing the following criminal charges:</p><p> </p><p>Three counts of sexual assault, one count of theft of a pedal cycle and one count of exposure.</p><p> </p><p>Three counts of sexual assault and one count of theft of a pedal cycle.</p><p> </p><p>Two counts of sexual assault, one count of theft of a pedal cycle and one count of using threatening/abusive/insulting words/behaviour to cause harassment/alarm/distress against a police officer.</p><p> </p><p>One count of rape.</p><p> </p><p>One count of rape.</p><p> </p><p>All other trainees at Bassingbourn have been returned to Libya.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>A team has been set up to produce for the Defence Secretary before Christmas an objective report into the GPF training.
