Report criticises US for failing to investigate Afghan civilian deaths
The US failed to properly investigate civilian killings, including possible war crimes, which occurred during its military operations in Afghanistan, the international rights group Amnesty International claimed on Monday.
A toughly-worded report by the group focused on 10 incidents between 2009 and 2013 that it said saw 140 civilians killed during US military operations.
Amnesty said the vast majority of family members it interviewed said they had never been interviewed by US military investigators.
Both tactics have sparked heated criticism from Afghan civilians and the government who say the US doesn’t take enough care to prevent civilian deaths.
Two of the cases – one in Paktia province in 2010 and another in Wardak province from November 2012 to February 2013 – involved “abundant and compelling evidence of war crimes,” the report said.
Nicola Duckworth from Amnesty International told a news conference in Kabul that they needed to “ensure that justice and accountability were obtained with the victims now and they are not simply issues that are confined as a legacy of past.”
Translated from Dutch NOS TV today:
An Afghan asylum seeker who has worked as an interpreter for the United States army for thirteen years is in danger of being deported by the Netherlands to Afghanistan. Pro-refugee organisation Vluchtelingenwerk wants the man to stay here because he would be in great danger in Afghanistan; he is in the crosshairs of the Taliban and ISIS.
The Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) acknowledges that the man worked as an interpreter for foreign troops in Afghanistan, but that is not enough to be allowed to stay in the Netherlands. “The IND asks for something more. You have to prove that you are being searched for specifically and that is of course very difficult,” says Jan van der Werff of Vluchtelingenwerk.
