Why ICC probes into alleged Afghanistan war crimes are ‘not that simple’
A former senior diplomat says civilians “have no idea” what Australian Special Forces troops confronted while fighting in the Middle East.
The International Criminal Court has indefinitely shelved an investigation into Afghanistan war crimes allegedly committed by Australian troops.
In a letter to The Ray Hadley Morning Show, the former diplomat said Australian troops experienced “maliciousness” on the ground.
Ray said the account evidences “the harsh reality” troops faced and why investigations into alleged atrocities are “not that simple”.
“You have no idea what these men confront.”
