[CBC뉴스] 호주정부는 아프가니스탄에서 불법 살인의 확실한 증거를 발견한 보고서가 발표된 후 13명의 특수부대 장병들에게 해고통보를 내렸다고 호주방송(ABC)이 목요일 (11월 26일) 보도했다.
지난주 수정된 형태로 발표된 독립 보고서에는 39명의 무장하지 않은 아프간 포로들과 민간인들이 19명의 호주 군인에 의해 살해되었다는 증거가 있다고 한다.
Australia has issued termination notices to at least 10 special forces soldiers after the release of a report that found credible evidence of unlawful killings in Afghanistan, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) said on Thursday (November 26).
An independent report published last week in redacted form said there was evidence that 39 unarmed Afghan prisoners and civilians were killed by 19 Australian soldiers. None of the 19 soldiers was identified in the report, which was written by a state judge appointed by the inspector-general of defence. The 19 current and former soldiers have been referred for possible prosecution.
Amid the immediate fallout, ABC said 10 soldiers had been formally notified that they would be dismissed.
The broadcaster did not identify any of the 10 but said all of them were witnesses or accessories and therefore not among the 19 referred for possible criminal charges. The Department of Defence did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
