Probe Into Alleged Killings by Australian Special Forces in Afghanistan Enters Final Stages
A secret inquiry into alleged war crimes by Australian Special Forces is in its final stages, and is focusing on accusations of unlawful killings, the Inspector-General of the Australian Defiance Force (IGADF) said.
The inquiry, by (IGADF), has been underway since May 2016 and was sparked by allegations and rumours of Special Forces troops killing unarmed Afghan men and children.
Investigators are looking into 55 separate incidents of alleged breaches of the rules of war in Afghanistan between 2005 and 2016.
A total of 336 people have given evidence to the probe so far.
Members of the Defence community have been frustrated at how long the inquiry has been taking to complete.
