Don't prosecute the Trident whistle-blower

This petition had 4,075 supporters

We have decided to close this petition in support of the other petition launched recently by Scottish CND. Please sign the other petition and make sure your friends know about it!


We, the undersigned, call on the Ministry of Defence and Crown Office not to prosecute 25-year old William McNeilly, who produced an 18-page report entitled The Secret Nuclear Threat, detailing serious security failures at the site of the Trident nuclear weapons programme.

McNeilly has not yet been located, but we want an assurance that he will not face punishment for releasing the report.

McNeilly's release of this information was clearly in the public interest and, as John Ainslie, co-ordinator of Scottish CND said, "he should be commended for his action, not hounded by the Ministry of Defence".
