Former SAS members warned against disclosing information.
Former members of Britain's SAS regiment have been warned that they are forbidden from disclosing potentially sensitive information in books or in the media.
In a letter to all former SAS members, the commander of Britain's special forces said that they were prevented from disclosing any information, without permission, about their activities within the force due to an absolute duty of confidentiality.
The commander also admitted however that there could be problems silencing veterans who did not sign the secrecy contract that was introduced in 1997, according to The Guardian.
Veterans have been threatened with legal action, expulsion from the SAS association and a ban on attending any Ministry of Defence function if they disclose information.
