Afghans want to bring Prince Harry before an international court

In his book The alternate, published on Tuesday, Prince Harry claims to have killed 25 people when he was on a mission in Afghanistan in 2012 in 2013. Statements that would have angered the Taliban on the other side of the globe. These Afghans from the province of Helmand, in the south-west of the country, now want to bring the prince before an international court.

Interviewed by the London channel Sky News, Hameedullah Hameedi, a member of the Taliban community, assured that these comments would have an “impact on relations between the United Kingdom and Afghanistan”. According to him, the young representative of the British royal family was guilty of “crimes” by descending from “Afghan martyrs” as one eliminates “chess pieces”, using the metaphor used by Prince Harry in his memoirs.

“May the international community punish him”

“We ask (…) that the international community punish him as soon as possible”, claimed the man during this interview.

An Afghan political leader, Anas Haqqani, also denounced the Duke of Sussex’s remarks a few days ago. “Those you killed were not chess pieces, they were humans; they had families waiting for them to return,” he tweeted last Friday.

Prince Harry flew a helicopter gunship

Prince Harry has intervened several times in Afghanistan. First in 2007 and 2008 as an air attack coordinator, then in 2012 and 2013 as a combat helicopter pilot. This is where the royal officer, who served 10 years in the British army, was able to count his victims thanks to the cameras on board the aircraft.

In his book, the former captain takes responsibility for his actions. He claims to have fought those who, by participating in the September 11 attacks in the United States, committed a crime against humanity. Contacted by the British press, an army major estimated that with these declarations, the prince now exposed himself to “all kinds of jihadists and crackpots”.
