Prof Dapo Akande in The Guardian

Professor Dapo Akande, Yamani Fellow and Tutor of Public International Law at St Peter's, has been quoted in The Guardian on the news that a cross-party group of MPs and peers plans to investigate the UK’s practice of embedding military personnel with other forces, following revelations that British pilots seconded to the US military have bombed Syria.

Prof. Akande said the inquiry should ask the government what arrangements had been made to deal with the possibility of UK pilots being shot down over Syria. He added that members should ask “about whether or not the UK has any say in what goes on with regard to target selection”.
