Lindis wins

Peace activist Lindis Percy (coordinator of the Campaign for the Accountability of American Bases) has forced US airman Frank Macdonald to settle out of court.
The case dates back to February 2006, when Lindis was assaulted by Macdonald at the US base at Croughton, Northamptonshire – observed by MoD police.
Lindis very reluctantly accepted the offer to settle out of court at the end of March, because of the cost of legal representation and proceedings.
