Human Rights of Military Personnel
Abstract – Lt. Gen. Juan Gómez de Salazar, chief of the ground forces of the Spanish Army, who was previously said to have compared the possible infiltration of jihadists into the armed forces to having representatives of military associations in the units, now declared in an interview with the newspaper “ABC de Sevilla” that the “military duty exceeds all guarantees and rights, including the human rights.”
EUROMIL’s Spanish member association AUME has serious doubts about this statement, as it seems to deprive military personnel from their basic fundamental rights and freedoms, while they are on the other hand asked to safeguard these rights for others.
