But this is often not the treatment that soldiers get, if they are being charged by the Auditørkorpset, tells Kurt Brantner, who is acting president of the soldiers ' trade union HKKF.
- I do not know H. C. Mathiesens terms in detail. But it is my experience that our members will be drawn in the pay a short time after they have been charged with a criminal offence.

The former commander-in-chief in the Army was exempt from service after several stories of nepotism put forth by the netmediet Olfi. The stories went mainly on how the 55-year-old major general, tried, and, according to the court succeeded in promoting his son's career in the field of Defense.
And the former head of the army, which was also by the district court in Viborg convicted of having engaged in abuse of power by changing the optagelseskriterierne at the prestigious Operations and Føringsuddannelse, so his girlfriend came through the eye of the needle.
the Boyfriend is in day, H. C. Mathiesens wife, and she was not before the change of the admission requirements of a qualified training, the court found.

In 2018, former chief of the army thus 1.059.389 kr. in wages, while last year, rolled 1.076.088 down in lønposen. However, collected, he is not as in 2017 and the years before a significant engangsvederlag.
He retained, however, its ’special holiday allowance’ of just over dkk 16,000., which actually was slightly higher than in 2018.
H. C. Mathiesen, appealed against the judgment on the 60-day unconditional prison on the spot, and the appeal starts at the Vestre Landsret 18. august. What a possible confirmation of the judgment will mean for his employment and thus his wages, are to be seen.
he Would be made redundant, will H. C. Mathiesen continue to be able to make use of his earned social security pension. He will, however, in that case not be able to retire at 63-year-old, but must wait until he reaches retirement age.
Ekstra Bladet has tried to get a comment from H. C. Mathiesen, but he has not wanted to help. Instead, he refers to his lawyer, who, however, has not returned.
Nor does the minister of defence Trine Team has wanted to make up for the interview, and even though the Extra Leaf was allowed to send questions in the mail, threw it also not very light of the matter.
ministry of Defence: H. C. Mathiesen is still employed in the Defense
the Extra Leaf had among other things asked the minister of defence Trine Team (S) of the following:
Why has H. C. Mathiesen continue with the same salary (59.860 kr.) in both June and July, even though he was convicted of several of the charges in may, which resulted in a judgment on the 60-day unconditional prison?
Seems the minister, it is reasonable that the judgment may have been paid the same salaries for the following months, and should he at all have received wages after judgment?
the Answer from the ministry sounded to these questions:
'H. C. Mathiesen is still employed in the Defense, why he is continuing to receive a salary.'
Extra Leaf was also asked:
According to the HKKF, so experiencing their members, rank-and-file soldiers, often they will be drawn in the pay very short time after they are charged by the auditors. It means that they go down to 2/3 of their salary while the case is pending, inform the HKKF. Why have you not followed the same procedure with H. C. Mathiesen, who was charged by the auditors in January 2019?
This time the answer came personalestyrelsen:
'FPS (department of defense Personalestyrelse, red.) can generally state that there are some cases where there is suspension in the extension of an employee accused of a criminal offence. This will always depend on a concrete and individual assessment.'
Finally, we would st like to have had answers on whether the ministry had taken steps to dismiss H. C. Mathiesen after the verdict, as well as what the impact of the minister believed that the matter, if he is not exonerated, should have for his further career in the Defense, if he should not be fired.
But nor does it have the Trine Team, or the ministry wanted to respond to.
