ISAF probing soldiers over alleged misconduct

ISAF probing soldiers over alleged misconduct

May 08, 2013 - 15:19

KABULinfo-icon (PANinfo-icon): Charges of misconduct against International Security Assistance Force (ISAFinfo-icon) soldiers are under investigation, the alliance said on Wednesday.

The probe was launched following an internal report of alleged misconduct by ISAF personnel during an engagement that killed four insurgents in southern Zabul province on April 28.

A statement from the NATOinfo-icon-led force said since it was an open investigation, further details would not be provided at this time.

“I have informed the Afghan government of the situation. ISAF will do a very thorough investigation, and if appropriate, we will take action against the personnel involved,” said ISAF commander Gen. Joseph F. Dunford. 

“We take all allegations of misconduct by our personnel very seriously. ISAF will fully investigate this incident and keep the Afghan government informed,” he promised.

No timeline has been set for completion of the investigation.
