Two court cases about UK and Singapore Ministry of Defence: One MOD is untouchable.

Singapore, Mar 2016
The High Court ruled that the Ministry of Defence and its officers cannot be sued for death of a soldier. The family of a dead soldier who sued MOD was made to pay cost.

UK June 2013
"Families of soldiers killed in Iraq can pursue damages against the government, the Supreme Court has ruled. Legal action was brought by relatives of three men killed by roadside bombs while in Snatch Land Rovers and another killed while in a Challenger tank.
The judges ruled the families could make damages claims under human rights legislation and sue for negligence."
What is the implication for Singapore soldiers?
