Asia (bbabo.net), - After the release of Prince Harry's memoirs, in which he confesses to the murder of 25 Afghans, the heir to the British crown began to be haunted by scandals in which he tries to justify himself. In Afghanistan, his attempts are met with harsh condemnation, reports Ariana News.
Speaking to CBS late-night show host Stephen Colbert, Prince Harry called it a "dangerous lie" that he was "somehow bragging about the number of people he killed in Afghanistan."
"If I heard someone bragging about things like that, I would get pissed off," said Harry. “But that’s a lie, and hopefully now that the book is out, people will be able to see the context.”
Anas Haqqani, a senior member of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (IEA, the Taliban's self-name of the country), condemned Harry's claim of killing people during his military service in Afghanistan and said that those killed were not "chessmen" but people. Haqqani stressed that the dead had families waiting for their return and called the prince a murderer of the Afghans.
“Among the killers of Afghans, not many have the decency to reveal their conscience and confess to their war crimes,” Haqqani said. - You told the truth - our innocent people were chess pieces for your soldiers, military and political figures. However, you have failed in this game."
Haqqani also raised the issue of the International Criminal Court (ICC) and human rights defenders, calling them "deaf and blind".
“I don’t expect you to be summoned by the ICC or condemned by human rights activists, because they are deaf and blind to such crimes. But I hope these atrocities will remain in the history of mankind,” Haqqani said.
