Operação de evacuação no Afeganistão é criticada no Reino Unido

The expulsion operation in Afghanistan was criticized in the UK

UK evacuates 15,000 from Kabul, but faces claims government could still have helped – AFP

After the Taliban returned to power, the British government was accused on Tuesday (July 7) of mismanaging Afghanistan’s evacuation, with witnesses denouncing its lack of preparation and the abandonment of Afghan civilians.

After consulting with several British diplomats, Tom Dukendot, chairman of the Parliamentary Committee on Foreign Affairs, considered the country’s response to the crisis to be to “abandon” the Afghans.

Rafael Marshall, who served in the Foreign Office during the crisis, warned that of the 75,000 to 150,000 Afghans who wanted to escape the British plan, only 5% received help because of London’s “confused” response.

According to him, thousands of messages asking for help have not been read because of a lack of evidence at the crisis center.

Dukendot, who worked in Afghanistan, celebrated a “powerful and convincing” testimony that “highlights fundamental flaws.”

From August 9 to 26, at the height of the crisis, most investigations focused on the fact that both Minister Dominic Robb and department head Philip Barton were on leave.

Now the Minister of Justice, Rob has been attacked for not interfering with his vacation on the island of Crete, the largest in Greece. On the Sky News television channel, he said he was always making sure he had the “necessary resources”.

“If I could go back, I would have returned before my vacation,” Philip Barton admitted to the committee, but argued that the fall of Kabul during his vacation was “inevitable” and that his presence would not make a big difference.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson argued on television that air traffic had allowed the evacuation of 15,000 people from Kabul since the capture of the capital on August 15.

He also denied allegations that he had personally interfered in the removal of animals from a shelter run by a former British soldier. Barton denied that these animals have taken the place of people.
