Danish troops abuse Iraqi prisoners

http://www.dr.dk/nyheder/fremmedspro...ticleID=189133

Danish soldiers mistreated Iraqi prisoners by forcing them to hold stressful positions for extended periods of time, restricting access to food, water and toilets and exposing them to verbal humiliation, according to the initial findings of an investigation released on Thursday.

The investigators said they were looking into four sets of allegations that prisoners were denied food and water, forced to adopt painful positions for long periods during questioning and verbally abused in a way "deeply offen-sive to Muslims."

The investigators said it appeared that the Danish battalion commanders in Iraq had "to some degree approved of these interrogation methods or failed to intervene immediately or to order an enquiry into the case".

The investigative body also said that Reserve Captain Annemette Hommel, the intelligence officer at the centre of the investigation, had been charged under article 15 of the Danish military penal code for dereliction of duty, punishable by up to three years in prison.

Whoa. They actually charged the intelligence officer instead of rounding up some perverted patsy privates from trailer-parks... They've got brains, yes they do!
