Statement - IGADF Afghanistan Inquiry report
6 November 2020
The Chief of the Defence Force
Angus J. Campbell, AO, DSC
Today I have received the Afghanistan Inquiry report from the Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force (IGADF).
The independent inquiry was commissioned by Defence in 2016 after rumours and allegations emerged relating to possible breaches of the Law of Armed Conflict by members of the Special Operations Task Group in Afghanistan over the period 2005 to 2016.
I intend to speak about the key findings once I have read and reflected on the report.
Welfare and other support services are available to those affected by the Afghanistan Inquiry.
