AFF presents at conference for military judges

AFF’s Foreign & Commonwealth Specialist Katherine Houlston has given a briefing at the Judge Advocate General’s conference on the effects of criminal convictions on immigration status. 

Presenting to an audience of military judges, Katherine explained the implications of sentencing on the ability of Foreign & Commonwealth soldiers and their families to remain in the UK after their discharge.

AFF is grateful for this valuable opportunity to be involved in this important part of the military’s work, after being invited to speak by Lt Col Lee Pearce, Commanding Officer of the Military Corrective Training Centre.

After the conference, Judge Advocate General His Honour Judge Alan Large said: “Thank you for giving up your valuable time to speak to us. You addressed a subject which is of considerable importance. It is important that sentencers, be they Commanding Officers or judges, understand the effects of the sentences which they pass.”

We will continue to work with the MCTC to provide immigration information specific to Foreign & Commonwealth personnel.
