A top British general is reported by BBC to have withheld evidence of alleged extrajudicial killings by the SAS in Afghanistan
The Ministry of Defence’s response to the independent inquiry into allegations of unlawful killings by UK armed forces in Afghanistan raises concerns about a lack of transparency, accountability, and ambition for fair and full disclosure, potentially undermining public trust and the pursuit of justice.
The Ceasefire Centre for Civilian Rights report highlights that the UK’s growing military partnerships risk increased civilian harm and decreased accountability, urging the need for stronger civilian harm mitigation policies.
Political speakers included Armed Forces Minister James Heappey and House of Commons Defence Select Committee Chair Tobias Ellwood and Vice Chair John Spellar.
The MOD has proposed an independent review into 54 suspicious killings carried out by one SAS unit in Afghanistan.
