Morrison told SBS News the alleged war crimes detailed in the report was “disturbing” and “distressing”

The war crime allegations must be dealt with by the Australian justice system rather than the government, the prime minister argued.

“There are always risks out there, and it’s always important Australia stays on the front foot to get ahead of these risks.”
