Statement From The ADF

From a Defence spokesperson:

The Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force (IGADF) is conducting an Inquiry to determine whether there is any substance to rumours and allegations relating to the conduct of Australia’s Special Operations Task Group in Afghanistan over the period 2005 to 2016.

The Inquiry is being conducted at arm’s length from the ADF chain-of-command and Government to ensure the independence and integrity of the process.

Defence strongly supports the IGADF Afghanistan Inquiry, and respects the integrity and independence of the process.

Until the report is released, and in order to protect the integrity and independence of the Inquiry, it is not appropriate for Defence to comment further.
