According to an Australian media report on the 27th, an Afghan human rights organization pointed out that the crimes committed by the Australian army in Afghanistan are far more than what has been exposed.
After being repeatedly exposed by the media, the Australian military recently released an investigation report stating that between 2005 and 2016, 25 Australian soldiers in Afghanistan were suspected of participating in 23 illegal killings, resulting in a total of 39 people including innocent civilians. The Afghans were killed.
In this regard, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported on the 27th that Malifat, the head of the Afghan Human Rights and Democracy Organization, said that according to investigations in relevant areas in Afghanistan in the past ten years, the relevant atrocities committed by Australian soldiers far exceeded this.
The organization has contact with the families of some of the 39 victims. They are currently in contact with seven families in Uruzgan Province, Afghanistan. Marifat said the families of the victims said they were convinced that there were more atrocities committed by Australian soldiers that had not been investigated.
Moreover, the families of these victims have not received information about the Australian military’s investigation report, nor have any investigators contacted them. Marifat pointed out that the investigation without the involvement of the victim’s family is clearly incomplete.
Regarding the so-called compensation mentioned in the Australian military report, Malifat accused that it was an insult to the victim and his family, it was a blood drop, and the victim’s family must be returned to justice.
According to another report, the Australian military said today that it had issued a dismissal notice to 13 Australian Special Forces soldiers, and these 13 were witnesses to the scandal, not the 19 persons involved in the criminal investigation suggested in the previous military report.
