A quiet Australian inquiry becomes less quiet

"More than a dozen of Australia's most elite soldiers have been subject to intensive questioning by a judge leading a secretive inquiry into allegations of war crimes, according to army insiders.

"Over the past fortnight, the most senior soldier at the Special Air Service Regiment in Perth has been directing SASR members to attend hearings to face questioning by NSW Supreme Court Justice Paul Brereton."

The Sydney Morning Herald has the story here. The current inquiry follows another conducted in 2016. According to Amnesty International, "there are mounting questions around the ADF breaching international human rights law".
