[JURIST] Danish authorities have charged five soldiers - an intelligence officer and four military policemen - with "incorrect treatment" of Iraqi prisoners held in southern Iraq, Danish news agency Ritzau [media website] reported Friday. Denmark has 500 troops in the country headquartered at Camp Eden near Basra. The alleged abuse took place last year; complaints by other military personnel resulted in the intel officer, Reserve Capt. Annemette Hommel, being sent home before the end of her scheduled tour of duty. Hommel is accused of forcing prisoners to sit in stressful positions, denying them access to water, calling them "dogs" and "pigs" and threatening to kill them. She has been cited for extreme dereliction of duty under Article 15 of Denmark's military criminal code. Camp Commander Henrik Flach was also investigated but was not indicted. Reuters has more. The Copenhagen Post has local coverage in English from Denmark.
