Two men have been charged with negligence following the deaths of three soldiers during an SAS selection march in the Brecon Beacons.
L/Cpl Edward Maher, L/Cpl Craig Roberts and Cpl James Dunsby were taking part in a 16-mile recruitment exercise on the hottest day of 2013.
A coroner ruled they died from neglect.
The Service Prosecution Authority confirmed charges have been brought against two soldiers involved at the time.
The case will be heard in a military court and the maximum sentence is two years.
In any other corporate environment the employer, in this case the Ministry of Defence (MoD), would take corporate responsibility and face a manslaughter charge.
However the MoD has refused to accept corporate responsibility for deaths in training, exercises and selection events – ignoring the will of a Parliamentary Inquiry and flying in the face of public opinion in the process.
It is simply wrong for the MoD to hide behind the officers in charge to escape prosecution.
