Can anyone give me advice,my son has completed faze 2 training but just prior to completion he was accused of bullying a 17 year old,a charge he vehemently denies,if he is found guilty he faces discharge,is there anything he can do?
 
The captain has already made his mind up, but my son is fighting it ,if he does get discharged he has been told he can go back in two years,surely this indicates a lack of evidence.
Thanks

Long and short of it, your son is subject to naval discipline.
Agree or disagree, he is part of it.
If he was accused of whatever it will have been investigated. It will have gone through a process and has, after seeing others first, landed with the captain of his establishment for a final decision.
As for the captain already making up his mind. It seems you have also!!!

If he is involved with the (alleged) current 'hot topic' in the newspapers, then he may be home after a trip to Colchester. Only if of course he has been found guilty.

My advice is simply that he should get proper, qualified legal representation from a Naval Barrister if he wishes to contest the charge. His Divisional Officer will have advised him of his options and he will have had the options fully explained to him.

If he has already been told he will be discharged and may re-apply in two years then that indicates he has either been found guilty as charged due to the evidence provided or admitted guilt and accepted the penalty.

The "two-year re-apply" doesn't mean anything other than he cannot re-apply and join before two years have elapsed as that is the time period the Captain has decreed necessary before he is considered rehabilitated, Whether he is permitted to rejoin after two years have elapsed will depend on whether he is recommended for further service. The two things are quite different. A person can re-apply in two years and still be knocked back if they were not recommended further service.

He can appeal against the duration of the deferral if he wishes and can demonstrate it is worthy of consideration but once he's discharged, he's discharged.

Quite often people don't realise they are being a bully or indeed being bullied. Often people describe it as "banter". I've been on the receiving end of bullying by a senior officer but didn't recognise it for what it was at the time (micromanagement in this case).

Have a shufty through the "Diversity, Inclusion & You" guidance booklet (pdf) on this page, it is possible something may assist.

I'd avoid any further discussion on here regarding existing, ongoing cases pending, please.

OP, sympathise with your situation, but any further debate could jeopardise any procedures in process. Rest assured, the navy does try to seek justice where due, and that may include in favour of your son if found innocent.
