Soldier who spoke out about Afghanistan war to be held in Army jail


A SERVING soldier who faces up to ten years in jail for speaking out against the war in Afghanistan will continue to be held in an Army jail while he awaits trial, it was learned today.

Lance Corporal Joe Glenton, from York, is in military custody and facing five charges surrounding his role in an anti-war demonstration in London last month.

A military court decided he should be kept in custody for another 28 days, his legal representative said today.

The 27-year-old had already been accused of desertion after he went absent without leave from the Army in 2007 rather than serve his second tour of duty in Afghanistan, before handing himself in earlier this year.

He was arrested and charged last week with five offences of disobeying lawful commands and standing orders after he joined the anti-war protest.

Lance Corporal Glenton, of the Royal Logistic Corps, is being held at the Army's military corrective training centre in Colchester, a former prisoner of war camp.

The new charges carry a maximum of ten years in prison in addition to the sentence of up to four years that he could be given if found guilty of desertion.


His legal representative John Tipple said: "Joe feels obliged to continue to speak out against the war - that is what he is committed to doing."

Chris Nineham of the Stop The War Coalition said: "It is outrageous that military people are allowed to talk to the media about why we should continue with this incredibly unpopular war, yet someone expressing the views of millions of people is gagged."

Shame it took so long to bang him up. Can't see what the point of saying that Colly was a POW camp was......


Oh now I get it. ;)

"John Tipple said: "Joe feels obliged to continue to speak out against the war - that is what he is committed to doing."

Somehow, I don't think that the prick has been banged up solely for speaking out... mainly for desertion; and disobeying orders (one of which being contact with the media) merely forms something else to stick the tosser in the chokey for.

Fcuking hippies :roll:

Nice to note that they gave him enough rope to hang himself with by attending the protest though...

He should have been in there anyway, but it was seen fit to let him remain free. He was told not to gob off at the stop war coalition march but decided to do so. It's his own fault that he's now banged up.

"A SERVING soldier"..... Bo llocks, he is a fu cking deserter. And he isnt claiming "battle fatigue", so he should be shot.

He knew what he was doing and possibly thought that as his story was in the press etc he could push his luck for all it was worth and he may never get touched by the Army. Remember if you do the crime be prepared to do the time and I bet the MCTC staff treat him wit the dignity and respect due to an RLC L/Cpl. "WATCH YOUR FINGERS"

Would he not have had to have been in theatre to be charged with desertion? Otherwise its just AWOL no?
Not sure of the law as cant remember the relevent QR, however he is apparently accused of desertion and the fact that he has attended anti-war functions fcollowing his non attendance tends to go against him. As far as I am concerned he should be shot.

I believe that if you go awol after recieving orders to deploy that is the point at which it becomes desertion. I could be wrong but I doubt it!

You feel strongly about this don't you? :wink:

Why waste ammunition when there are plenty of ropes in B&Q (other stores are also available)

I wonder how many times he keeps bleating about having a conscience before the rest of his 'roomies' . . cough . . .'re-educate' him?

You never know, he may come out of Colly, if he's not dishonourably discharged, a better soldier :roll: As he's RLC (as I was) it'll have to be a long stretch though first 8O

Will he not be in C wing, where they hold all the SNLRs after sentence??
