Formica Report Annex 123: Article 15 Proceedings re: Assault of Detainee by Specialist, 1st Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group

Record of proceedings under Article 15 UCMJ, to evaluate whether a soldier attached to 1st Battalion, 5th Special Forces Group should be punished under Article 15 for assaulting a detainee at Ar Ramadi. Lists allegations that soldier was "cruel toward and committed maltreatment against a detainee named [redacted] by striking this individual at least three times." Includes form advising soldier of his rights. Attaches email stating that as punishment for the assault, the soldier "was reduced one rank, forfeited pay, and was placed on extra duty for 45 days."
Document deals with the same incident discussed in the last 3 pages of ACLU-RDI 2611, which are labeled "Formica Report – Annex 122". Most likely a labeling error.
