More than 2? years after handcuffed Afghan detainees were beaten by Canadian military police, the criminal investigation into whether unlawful force was used may be nearing an end, although it remains unclear whether anyone will face charges.
The Canadian Forces National Investigation Service, a special unit of the military police, "is nearing completion of its investigation," said Claude Dubois, a spokesman for the independent and separate Military Police Complaints Commission. The MPCC is probing whether military police attempted to cover up the initial beatings or failed to properly investigate whether the detainees had been lawfully beaten into submission because they were causing problems and trying to escape.
But the long, slow investigations, which may still be months from completion, has also prompted charges of incompetence or a cover-up from the Ottawa law professor who originally uncovered the medical documents showing that detainees had been beaten.
