December 4th – The Afghan Times recently published an editorial entitled “Friendly Justice”, believing that it is necessary to take practical action to accuse those who have committed crimes against Afghan civilians. Afghans welcome anyone to condemn inhumane acts that harm ordinary Afghan people.
The article said that a previous report revealed that Australian special forces stationed in southern Afghanistan killed 39 innocent civilians. This crime has aroused widespread condemnation all over the world. Afghans wholeheartedly welcome anyone to condemn inhumane acts that harm ordinary Afghan people. No country can take it for granted that their atrocities will not be prosecuted. The Afghan people welcome the views of other countries to bring the perpetrators of innocent Afghan people to justice.
The British Guardian recently published an article entitled “Experts say that Australians should not regard the war crimes scandal as just a few “rotten fruits”. The report interviewed Samantha Krumpwarts, an Australian defense consultant and military sociologist. It was her internal report written in 2016 that exposed the suspected crimes of the Australian army in the Afghan battlefield.
The article said that after the release of the investigation report on the Australian Forces in Afghanistan, there were people in Australia who actually said that the achievements of the whole force should not be erased by the criminal acts of a few soldiers.
The article quotes Klopwarts as saying that anyone who has read the investigation carefully must be clear that crimes committed by the AAU should not be regarded as just the mistakes made by “a few rotten fruits”, and that the whole special forces should be held accountable.
