Here is a press release (and FAQs page) from Naval Station Norfolk about the court martial of the three Navy SEALs for charges related to alleged abuse of a detainee in US custody. We previously covered the cases here and here.
New info. includes:
- Only one of the three SEALs is charged with assault, the others are charged with false official statements, dereliction of duty, or impeding an official investigation.
- The SEAL charged with assault is also charged with impeding an official investigation.
- The convening authority for all three cases is Major General Charles T. Cleveland, U.S. Army, Special Operations Command Central.
- Our very own Super Grover will in fact be trial counsel for all three cases
Arraignment is tomorrow (Dec. 7th) at 9 am for two of the three, as we previously reported. Hereis also a link to what appears to be an infrequently updated docket for Naval Station Norfolk, the main page is here. I say infrequently because Monday’s hearings in the SEAL cases don’t appear on it.
