TWELVE officers from the Afghan
National Security Forces learnt
to lay down the law with help from
Australian Federal Police and the
3RAR Task Group.
The training, held at Multinational
Base Tarin Kot on October 24, aimed
to improve the quality of investiga-
tive statements and evidence briefs for
Afghan law courts. The training was a
first for Uruzgan province.
Six Afghan National Police (ANP)
officers and six Afghan National Army
(ANA) officers participated in the
Military police officer Capt Ben
Williams said the package built on
course in evidence collection and han-
dling in August.
"This was continuation training
from the earlier course delivered by the
3RAR Task Group legal officer, weap-
ons intelligence team staff and me,"
Capt Williams said.
"The aim of the training was to
provide relevant and practical training
which brings police and army together."
The four-day course included train-
ing in interviewing suspects and wit-
nesses, writing statements and practical
The course also featured a lecture
from Col Hanef, the Chief Prosecutor
from the Afghan National Directorate of
Security, who highlighted the need for
robust evidence briefs to support pros-
ecution and conviction of insurgents.
Instructor Australian Federal Police
agent Leisa James said the training
would give Afghan police and army per-
sonnel skills to better interview witness-
es and suspects and write statements.
"This will help them get the most
reliable evidence to be able to present to
the court and improve their chances of a
successful prosecution," she said.
ANA Capt Motobar said the course
would help in his job as an investigator.
"My job is to deal with crime scenes
and collect evidence and I have experi-
ence in this, but this course really helped
close gaps I have in my field," he said.
Afghan police and army officers,
some who travelled from far outlying
districts of Uruzgan, trained together
for the first time on the course, further
strengthening the relationship between
the country's security forces.
Sgt Janan, of the ANP, said the
course would help the security situation
"In the future we could go to any
type of crime scene and collect the evi-
dence and have an investigation of the
crime. This will have a very big effect
on the security in Uruzgan."
Course covers interviews and statements
Legally speaking: Afghan National Police Col Sidiqui, Head of Criminal Investigative Division and
Australian Brig Mark Brewer are briefed by Capt Kym McCarthy during the course on interviewing and
statement writing at Multinational Base Tarin Kot.
