MAPW media release: Australian troops must obey international law - February 2012

 

The Medical Association for Prevention of War (Australia) (MAPW) has issued a media release expressing concern at evidence that Australia deliberately tried to avoid its human rights obligations under the Geneva Convention in Iraq and Afghanistan. MAPW supports the call for a Royal Commission made by the Public Interest Advocacy Centre who have obtained information through Freedom of Information on the operations of the Australian Defence force, including the SAS.
