Queensland police say they will look into a social media photo that shows an officer on holiday with Ben Roberts-Smith and Zachary Rolfe, on which Rolfe appeared to comment: “Just a couple of cops/murderers and war criminals Havin a lovely afternoon in the sun”.

The picture of the trio, apparently taken at Finns Beach Club in Bali, was recently posted on the private Instagram account of the serving Queensland police officer. It has been circulated beyond the officer’s immediate group and passed on to Guardian Australia.
