Velázquez on Charges Filed in Private Chen Case
Washington, DC – Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) commented today on charges that were filed in the case of Private Danny Chen:
"The announcement of these charges provides further proof of our community's concern that Private Chen's death was not a simple suicide. There's clearly more going on here and Danny's family needs to know exactly what happened. For these reasons, I've asked the Department of Defense Inspector General to undertake a comprehensive investigation and requested that the Army supply Private Chen's family with the autopsy report. This is just the beginning. We won't rest until the truth comes out and those involved are held accountable."
