The Inspector-General of the Australian Defence Force (IGADF) is conducting an inquiry into rumours and allegations relating to the conduct of Australia’s Special Forces in Afghanistan between 2005 and 2016.
The Chief of the Defence Force directed the IGADF Afghanistan Inquiry.
This Inquiry, like all IGADF inquiries, is at arm’s length from the chain of command to ensure the independence and integrity of the process. This administrative inquiry started in 2016 and is being conducted in private.
The Chief of the Defence Force will consider the inquiry’s findings once the IGADF delivers the report.
Support services are available for anyone assisting the IGADF with the inquiry, whether they are current or former ADF personnel, or families. We strongly encourage anybody who is finding the process challenging to reach out for help.
