The U.S. Navy relieved the commander of Naval Station Guantanamo Bay for unspecified “misconduct” on Wednesday.

Capt. John Nettleton was fired by Rear Adm. Mary Jackson, head of Navy Region Southeast, “due to loss of confidence in Nettleton’s ability to command,” the region said in a press release, Navy Times reported Wednesday.

A Naval Criminal Investigative Service investigation is ongoing into the captain’s misconduct.

“Due to an ongoing NCIS investigation, it is not appropriate for the Navy to provide additional details concerning the relief,” Navy Region Southeast’s release said, the newspaper reported.

Captain Nettleton took control of Naval Station Guantanamo Bay in June 2012.
