The TPI Federation fully supports the Australian Special Air Service Association (ASASA) and reaffirms that any attempt to cancel honours or awards issued to Australian Veterans of the Afghanistan war must not be permitted prior to any formal legal findings of wrongdoing that can be attributed to any specific individual.

“Should an Australian Court find an Australian Veteran guilty of a war crime, then at such a time an administrative review of honours and awards may be appropriate. Until then, procedural fairness and the presumption of innocence are fundamental human rights and especially in the democracy of Australia, and this applies most definitely to our soldiers who are humbly silent in their continued service in the face of unproven accusations.” APPVA Chairman, Ian Lindgren

The ASASA has sent this email at to all ESOs for dissemination to their Members. The CDF letter is at and the media release is at

Please show your support for the Special Forces Veterans and the ASASA by writing to your federal and local member and demand that they cease this injustice until such time that guilt or innocence has been determined.
