Crime reported in Llandrindod

Nukes shopped to cops

At 2.30pm on 30 June, 15 people arrived to report the Trident nuclear weapons system as a crime at Llandrindod police station as part of the Action AWE week of ‘Reportings of Trident Crime’ all around the country.

A Llandrindod police sergeant said that a rural police force could not deal with these kinds of crimes as they had no knowledge of international law. I asked that they deal with it in the same way as they would deal with a report of a threat to murder, because when the armed forces do not comply with international humanitarian law and threaten to use a weapon that could never be used lawfully then their act become one of murder not of defence.
