The District Military Court in Warsaw Oct. 9 sent a case in which Polish soldiers are accused of murdering civilians in Afghanistan back to prosecutors, saying investigators had made numerous errors.

The court said the governor of the Afghan province where the incident took place had not been questioned, nor had the accused soldiers' instructor in Poland. The court added that the scene of the alleged crime had not been thoroughly investigated.

The prosecutor announced he would probably appeal the court's decision.

The crime is alleged to have taken place in the Afghan village of Nangar Khel on Aug. 16 last year during a patrol by a Polish unit. Military prosecutors accused six soldiers of murdering civilians, a crime punishable by life imprisonment.

The accused soldiers have been named as warrant officer 3rd class Andrzej O., master corporal Tomasz B., captain Olgierd C., 2nd lieutenant Łukasz B. and privates 1st class Jacek J. and Robert B.

Private Damian L. was accused of shooting at an undefended target, which carries a 5- to 15-year jail sentence.
