12.08.2013  13:51

Denmark has entered into an agreement with the United Kingdom on the management of interpreters and other locally employed civilians in Afghanistan who have been made redundant as a consequence of the drawdown of Danish Forces. The agreement is a coordinated Danish-British management of the interpreters and other locally employed civilians in Afghanistan who have been employed by the British authorities on a British contract but who have predominantly assisted Danish military units in Afghanistan (read more about the agreement via the links below – Danish, English, Dari and Pashto versions.) Interpreters and other locally employed civilians who are eligible for the redundancy package will be contacted with more details in due course.

In case you are exposed to any sort of intimidation or harassment as a direct consequence of your affiliation with the Danish military units as part of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), no matter if you have been employed by a military authority or by a private company (for instance Mission Essential Personnel), you can contact the Danish military authorities by e-mail: interpreters@mil.dk or the Danish embassy at e-mail: kblamb@um.dk . Please provide information and documentation regarding your affiliation with Danish forces in Afghanistan. We also encourage you to report such incidents to the Afghan police/authorities immediately. In case you have been employed by the British authorities you should also contact the British Labour Support Unit at Camp Bastion
