Ritzau has tried in vain to get a comment from Defence Auditørkorps.

the army chief was charged in the nine conditions, but it is now shaved down to the good by half, five charges. Hans-Christian Mathiesen refuses guilty, says lawyer, Torben Koch, to Berlingske.

Auditørkorpset went into the matter after a number of articles in the media about nepotism. The army chief should have promoted his wife’s career through the abuse of power.

Auditors began the preliminary investigation of the charges against Hans-Christian Mathiesen 19. October of last year.
