Defense Objects to One-Sided Article 32 Investigation

 Yesterday, the Defense filed an objection to the current memorandum issued by Colonel Lamb wherein he directs the Article 32 Investigating Officer to consider any evidence of “aggravating factors” as defined in RCM 1004.  To ensure a full, fair, and complete investigation, the Defense has requested that Colonel Lamb instruct the Investigating Officer that his inquiry should also be directed to the presence of “mitigating” facts as well.  Action by the Special Court-Martial Convening Authority on this important matter will dictate whether Major Hasan can be assured an impartial and fair hearing is conducted.  For a complete copy of the Defense submission – Click Here  Hasan – Amend 32 Appointment 23 Mar 2010
