Defence Sexual Assault Scandals

The Australian Defence Forces are work places like any other and sexual assault and sexual harassment should be dealt with the same way.  Not releasing the outcome of the inquiry by Andrew Kirkham, QC, into the Skype sex scandal is understandable in that the matter is still before the courts.  However, for us to have confidence in the Australian Defence Force handling of such situations it is essential that they have transparent processes for dealing with such issues.
