Thursday Night is Boyz Night, Update

OTTAWA– The Star

Canadian soldiers have been explicitly ordered to stop or report incidents of Afghan soldiers or interpreters raping boys, Defence Minister Peter MacKay says.

MacKay maintains there is no evidence to support allegations that senior officers have turned a blind eye to the troubling abuse, which is the subject of an ongoing military investigation. Even so, he felt compelled to lay out the law to clear any possible confusion.


“We require that any wrongdoing that a Canadian soldier would see in Afghanistan or anywhere would be no less than the expectation that we would have in Canada – to do the right thing, to prevent, to pre-empt, to intervene,” MacKay said Monday.

The Canadian Forces launched two probes into allegations of child sexual abuse at military bases in Kandahar. The first probe wrapped up in May and cleared Canadian soldiers and commanders of any wrongdoing for either not reporting the incidents or not acting on witness accounts of abuse.

The second, a board of inquiry, is ongoing.
