Operation Burnham was a mission undertaken in Afghanistan by New Zealand Special Air Service troops in 2010. An inquiry into this mission was launched following allegations made in the book Hit & Run, by the journalists Nicky Hager and Jon Stephenson. The book alleged that members of the Defence Force killed six and injured fifteen Afghan civilians and the events were later covered up by the military. The inquiry was launched in April last year, however the lawyers representing the Afghan villagers have launched legal proceedings for a judicial review in the investigation as they do not think the inquiry is being carried out the way it should be. Olivia spoke to lawyer Deborah Manning who is representing the villagers about the judicial review.
