Afghan army deserter Hekmatullah, who murdered three Australian soldiers, freed from custody in Qatar – ABC News

Three caskets are carried by three groups of soldiers into the back of an aircraft, on a runway at a military base

We seem more concerned about the freeing of an Afghan soldier who killed 3 Australians than we do about Australian soldiers accused of criminally murdering Afghan innocents. Something suggests we don’t regard Afgan lives as quite the same? Given we recently saw the status of the Afghan army can he legitimately even be called a deserter?

Hekmatullah killed three Australian soldiers while they were playing cards in 2012 He spent seven years in prison in Afghanistan, but was transferred to Qatar last year during US-Taliban peace talks He was released from custody when the Taliban retook Kabul in August, and his whereabouts cannot be verified
