Australia’s former spy chief David Irvine is investigating the defence force’s handling of allegations that elite Australian soldiers committed war crimes in Afghanistan or engaged in other serious misconduct.
Fairfax Media has confirmed the Irvine inquiry was commissioned by army chiefs earlier this year amid concerns raised in leaked defence reports of an entrenched culture of impunity within the nation’s Special Operations Task Group.
It is the third investigation into the special forces to be launched in two years.
