AIHRC Demands Prosecution Against Australian Officers Involved In Killing Of Afghan Civilians
Following Australian top military commander General Angus Campbell’s admission over involvement of its forces in the unlawful killing of Afghan civilians, the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) has called for criminal prosecution against involved personnel.
In a press release on Thursday, the AIHRC welcomed Australian government’s move to initiate investigation against officers involved in alleged killings. It urged Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison to ensure criminal prosecution of the perpetrators and disclose the atrocities to full extent that took place between 2007 and 2014.
The commission stated that the Australian government, now as well as in the future, should pay heed to Afghan victims’ demands for justice, adding that they should be offered compensation without further ado.
