Nick McKenzie and Chris Masters have won the 2020 The Grant Hattam Quill for Investigative Journalism Quill for work broadcast on 60 Minutes and published in Good Weekend.
The investigation into alleged war crimes by Australian forces in Afghanistan has had profound consequences. This entry is the latest story broken as part of a sustained investigation by Nick McKenzie and Chris Masters dating back to 2017. It is the result of years of perseverance and unflinching commitment to digging into the criminal behaviour and moral failures of Australian soldiers. The story of former SAS medic Dusty Miller’s quest to make amends with one victim’s family reveals the deep trauma and lifelong consequences of actions that for too long had been hidden from view.
