Britain Faces Legal Challenge to Army's Discriminatory Treatment of Minors

en

Child Soldiers' International are taking the Ministry of Defence to judicial review over its discriminatory terms of service for those who enlist into the army as minors. These terms currently require minors to serve until they are 22, which could be 6 years for a soldier who enlisted at 16 compared to the four years' service required of those who enlist as adults.
