Australian military officers accused of widespread sexual assault

July 12, 2013

Senior Australian military officers have been accused of widespread physical abuse and sexual assault dating back to the 1950s in a damning report, that has led to accusations of a cover-up and calls for a public inquiry.

The confidential report, commissioned by the government, outlines more than 700 complaints of brutal assaults of children as young as 13 and says paedophiles may have joined the forces to prey on young recruits.

It says senior officers, some of whom may still be serving, were involved in sexual abuse, bullying, harassment and intimidation – and that many of the victims later became perpetrators.

“During the years from the 1950s through to the early 1980s, the ADF and successive Australian governments failed to put in place adequate protections to take into account the special needs and vulnerability of boys of 13, 14, 15 and 16 years of age to protect them,” it says.

“It is certain that many boys were subjected to serious sexual and physical assault and other serious abuse … Many of the boys who suffered such abuse later participated in inflicting sexual abuse on other children in the ADF.”

Julia Gillard, the prime minister, said she was disturbed by the report and was last night considering holding a royal commission

Australia says may see payouts on military abuse

The Government released a censored summary of the report earlier this year. Stephen Smith, the defence minister, was forced to deny covering up the extent of the abuse.

“I released enough material to make the point that these were very serious allegations, these were very concerning matters,” he said.

In the uncensored report, one complainant, named only as “John”, said he was raped by a 50-year-old corporal while serving in the air force in Victoria in 1988.

“He took me back to his room, take off my clothes and then penetrated me,” the man told ABC-TV. “He also raped and sexually abused other minors in the air force at the time. There was an investigation, I was the whistle-blower regarding the incidents. He was discharged. … and consequently – I was 18 at the time – they also wanted me discharged.”

The report, prepared by a law firm, was commissioned by the government after a string of Australian military scandals, including a case last year in which an 18-year-old female officer cadet was secretly filmed having sex with a colleague while other cadets watched via Skype. An executive summary was released this week under freedom of information laws. It proposes various measures including an apology, compensation and a royal commission to determine whether men who committed rape – or did nothing about it – were still serving.

“There is a risk that [the] perpetrators now hold middle and senior management position within the ADF and there is a risk that those that witnessed abuse and did not report what they witnessed now hold middle and senior management positions within the ADF,” it says.

The newly-released 25-page report says that the practice of bastardisation – initiation ceremonies – was brutal, rife and “tacitly accepted” at the Royal Military College, Duntroon, the army’s officer training college in Canberra.

“While it seems to have been tacitly accepted as part of ADF life, it should be noted that the conduct engaged in was very frequently brutal and would have been likely to attract criminal sanctions if practised in the civil community,” the report says. “The choice was to join in bashing and assaults on other boys or young males or to continue to be the target of such abuse.”

Australia’s Navy accepted recruits as young as 13 until the late 1960s, while all three branches accepted recruits as young as 15 until the 1980s. The minimum age now is 17.
