[JURIST] Capt. Christopher M. Beiring, an army officer from the 377th Military Police Company, was charged Tuesday with dereliction of duty and making a false official statement in connection with an ongoing investigation into prisoner abuse at the Bagram Air Base detention facility [Wikipedia backgrounder] in Afghanistan [JURIST news archive]. Two other soldiers from Beiring's unit, Staff Sgt. Brian L. Doyle and Sgt. Duane M. Grubb, were also charged. Grubb is charged with assault, maltreatment and making a false official statement and Doyle faces charges of dereliction of duty and maltreatment after he did not give "use-of-force" guidance to his soldiers when he ordered the hitting of a detainee, Habibullah, the first prisoner to die at the detention center. Several other soldiers have been acquitted of charges [JURIST report] relating to Habibullah's death, but one soldier has pleaded guilty [JURIST report] to assault and two counts of making a false statement.
