Opinion – Murky waters of SASR allegations

IT WAS ironic that on the 22nd anniversary of the Australian Special Air Service Regiment’s most costly disaster the regiment was facing allegations of serious misconduct. The allegations made against some SASR personnel who have operated in Afghanistan are that they encouraged, tolerated or concealed what might in some circumstances be considered unlawful acts.

The facts of those allegations are in dispute, and those who may be formally accused remain innocent until proven guilty.

The issue has ignited passionate debate within the wider defence community, which would be well advised to moderate open discussion, particularly on social media.
