Ben Roberts-Smith’s Appeal Continues.

Ben Roberts-Smith’s appeal challenges a damning finding that he unlawfully killed two insurgents during an Afghanistan raid. His legal team argues that the verdict was based on speculation and flawed logic, emphasizing contradictions in testimony and military documents. Roberts-Smith, a disgraced war veteran, seeks to overturn a defamation loss related to media reporting of war crimes. The appeal questions the judge’s preference for witness testimony over contemporaneous documents, highlighting implausible details in the alleged murders. Roberts-Smith denies involvement in unlawful killings and challenges various findings, including accusations of bullying and ordering executions.

The hearing continues.
