BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan – Testimonies for an Article 32 hearing into allegations of detainee mistreatment by two Soldiers continued Tuesday at Forward Operating Base Salerno.

This was the second day of the hearing, which could conclude as early as Wednesday. Five witnesses testified in Tuesday’s session.

Capt. Roger T. Hill and 1st Sgt. Tommy L. Scott, both of 1st Battalion, 506th Infantry Regiment, have been charged with detainee mistreatment and dereliction of the duty to report detainee mistreatment.  The charges were filed as a result of an incident that occurred in eastern Afghanistan in August, 2008.

Similar to the civilian criminal process, the service members are presumed innocent of all charges unless proven otherwise. The general purpose of an Article 32 hearing is to determine whether the case should proceed to a court-martial.

Following the hearing, the investigating officer will review all evidence provided and make a recommendation to the brigade commander.  The brigade commander can then concur with the investigating officer or choose another course of action.

For further information, please contact the CJTF-101 Public Affairs Office.
