Report: Top UK general locked away evidence of SAS murders

Source: BBC News [UK state media]

“One of the UK’s most senior generals was warned in writing in 2011 that SAS soldiers were claiming to have executed handcuffed detainees in Afghanistan. BBC Panorama can reveal that Gen Gwyn Jenkins, who is now the second most senior officer in the British armed forces, received accounts of conversations in which members of the SAS described extrajudicial killings. But instead of referring the evidence to military police, Gen Jenkins placed it in a classified dossier and locked it in a safe. The failure to refer the evidence to military police has previously been disclosed in court, but the identities of the officers involved were withheld from the public by the Ministry of Defence.” (11/16/23)
