Centre's nod needed for trial of errant armymen: SC

Posted in May 2012

New Delhi, May 01 (IANS): The Supreme Court Tuesday said that military personnel operating in areas under the Armed Forces Special Powers Act (AFSPA) and facing allegations of excesses could not be tried by criminal courts without the prior sanction of the central government.
An apex court bench of Justice B.S. Chauhan and Justice Swatanter Kumar said in its judgment that army personnel could be tried by criminal courts only after army authorities had declined to exercise the option of holding court martial proceedings against them. But for the trial courts to proceed against army personnel, a sanction from the government was a must.
