Australian commando claims he covered up POW’s execution; Supreme Court judge joins secretive Defence probe | ABC News

An Australian commando says he is ready to go to jail for his role in what he says was the unlawful execution of a prisoner of war in Afghanistan.

Special forces sergeant Kevin Frost says he helped cover up the shooting of a captive and wants those involved — including himself — to face punishment.

His claims come as the ABC reveals that a Supreme Court judge has begun hearing a broad range of allegations, including possible war crimes committed by Australian soldiers during the war in Afghanistan.
