April he hadn't witnessed the shooting, and according to the Canadian Forces' statement, Malgarai "declined" to co operate with the investigation his own allegations sparked.
of command. Also, since the alleged crimes took place in Afghanistan, the military police force is the primary jurisdiction for the investigation.
According to Lt. Col. Gilles Sansterre, commanding officer of the CFNIS, the military police force takes all allegations of offences by Canadian Forces personnel "very seriously," and conducted a very thorough investigation.
"If there is nothing to these allegations . why won't the military hand this over to an independent police force?" Attaran asked. "We've asked several times. Why won't they do it if they're so sure?"
"We are completely independent," Sansterre said. "We lay charges either in the criminal code of Canada or in the military justice system. We don't get charges approved, we lay them ourselves."
"Based on interviews with those individuals directly involved, including Afghan witnesses, and a detailed examination of the evidence, the individual was determined to be an armed threat and a legitimate target," reads a Canadian Forces news statement issued Tuesday. "In the end, no evidence was found supporting any wrongdoing by Canadian Forces personnel, and no charges were laid."
"We spoke to people who had first hand knowledge, we looked at documentary evidence, we did a complete and thorough investigation and came to our findings after that," Sansterre said.
That's not at all the case. He said yes, but they declined to hand the investigation over to somebody else."
But Amir Attaran, Malgarai's lawyer, said that's a "lie." Attaran said his client was willing to participate in the investigation, so long as it was carried out by an independent police force not beholden to the defence department.
That criteria wasn't met, so Malgarai didn't talk, Attaran said.

Attaran said his client still wants an independent police force like the Ontario Provincial Police or RCMP to investigate the allegations, which he said will prove his client isn't wrong.

"We have no confidence in the findings," Attaran said. "And they published what I consider Nike Foamposite Black And Orange a defamatory statement that he declined to participate.
He alleged not only that Canadian Forces personnel had mistreated wounded and sick Afghan detainees, but also that they had shot and killed an innocent unarmed Afghan boy and then covered it up, even planting a pistol on the corpse.

But following an investigation by the Canadian Forces National Investigation Service (CFNIS), the independent investigative arm of the Canadian Forces Military Police, it was found the 17 year old teen was armed and posed a threat to the soldiers.
Canadian soldiers have been cleared of murder charges in the death of a 17 year old Afghan teen, following an investigation into allegations from a former translator that the teen was unarmed and that his murder was being covered up.
