It is not a "doc" file but a Word 2003 XML.

Import sets a left margin of about 7cm at the tables, which shouldn't be there. Manually correcting the margin to 0cm shows the tables.

I see similar problems in bug 58079 and bug 76134, likely the same cause.

The other bug reports see the error already in LO 3.4 or LO 4.0

This is a bug in libreoffice which still exists in the latest version of libreeoffice. I wonder when this bug will be fixed
