Wonder what she looks like?
Flat shoes, short hair by the sounds of it!

No but seriously, not a lot of detail there Nutty, why was she charged by the Military? I'm fairly sure in this Country she would have been charged for indecent assault ashore by the Civilian authorities, is this something peculiar to the new Courts Martial rules in Oz?

Agree there isn't much detail but: ........two women who were junior navy personnel

Might depend on whether they were in her chain of command or not?

She sounds like a cracking run ashore! Perhaps if Rosie performed like that on the RR piss up, I wouldn't complain of harassment... :wink:
 
A cracking run ashore maybe
BUT
Have we not always had this, ie: Drunk driving charged ashore in civvies lost licence fined, return to base and bringing the "uniform" into disrepect
charged and weighed off again

Which is correct IMHO irrespective of the charge

It does not matter if the accused CPO was ashore, or in civvies or off duty, she has allegedly touched up her subordinates. She can be charged with assault under the DFDA. In her case this is a court martial offence. If the women she allegedly touched up in the pub the next day were civilians then the civvy police can lay charges, and if found guilty there would be 'admistrative consequences' from the Navy.

Gotta love the press though. The accused is an Officer in the headline, a Petty Officer in the first paragraph and a Chief Petty Officer in the second. :roll:

Unfortunately there are a lot of lefty-trendy, blouse tearing, bed wetting civvy lawyers who do not like the DFDA or the fact that the ADF has its own legal system. They are salivating for a chance to test its validity in the Supreme Court and have it done away with. What would replace it is open to question.

Sounds like the Chief has hooked up with some of those.

Tough titty (ahem) bringing the service into disrepute
Whilst I actually do agree with yor comment (that make a change doesn't it) the question is not whether the offence can be considered by the court but whether the Ausie court martial system itself is legal, the nature of the case seems to be irrelevat apart from making it more juicy for the press.

Lingyai's posts deleted and unfortunately the quotation part of Maxi's altered too.

Lingyai, you probably have no lives left. You know very well you lost posts aplenty to the Mod's delete button before I turned my hand to moderating. You are mentioned in despatches and it isn't a compliment.
