Well done the Afghan Government

Discussion in 'Afghanistan' started by Herrumph, Jul 17, 2012.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. The Afghan Government and/or courts intend to administer the death penalty to an ANA soldier responsible for a green on blue attack on French soldiers as reported on BBC:

    BBC News - Death penalty for Afghan soldier who killed French troops

    Well done to them for swiftly applying their own justice, I say.

    I am sure some hand-wringers and serial opponents of the campaign will soon step up and accuse the Afghans of more barbarity!

    Let's hope he's not quietly cleared after extended appeal processes and everyone forgets about it.
     
  3. I am sure the threat of withdrawal of french finanical amd military support would have helped the court to get to the correct decision.
     
  4. No doubt Human Rights Watch will get involved and as the French are opposed to the death penalty the sentence will never be administered. Political posturing yet again.
