U.S. Army says no actions, decision in Bergdahl investigation

WASHINGTON, Jan 27 (Reuters) – No actions or decisions have been made in the investigation of Army Sergeant Bowe Bergdahl, who was released last year in a prisoner swap with the Taliban after disappearing from his base in Afghanistan in 2009, a U.S. Army spokesman said on Tuesday.

Major General Ronald Lewis, head of public affairs for the U.S. Army, also said in the statement that media reports published earlier on Tuesday about the case “patently false.”

NBC News earlier reported that Bergdahl would be charged with desertion, citing senior defense officials.
