KOSB jock court martial dropped

#1
KOSB Pte Alexander Johnston, who was to face court martial for the unlawful wounding of a 13 year-old Iraqi boy in Az-Zubayr last September, has been told the charges have been dropped. My understanding is that he still faces charges in connection with an alleged ND.

He was told on Wednesday that "new evidence" had been collected which supported his claims, and the unlawful wounding part of the charge has been dropped. The ND charge still stands.

Presumably the "negligent handling of a weapon" was an alternative charge, ie both charges resulted from the same incident.

Ant idea what 'new evidence' is and why it is 'new' at this late stage?
