    Default Irish Army: Sexual Assault Victim Fined €950!

    This all seems surreal. Why is this poor girl being treating like this?

    These sex assault issues can blow out of all proportion and it seems to me that this is a classic case. Why is she being fined?

    Fined for going AWOL... Not because she was allegedly sexually assaulted. Might be worth mentioning...

    Yes, but how it's managed to get out all over the newspapers is unreal!

    And it's not the first time the army has had such problems.

    Report on bullying in defence forces stresses need for clarification of terms - Ireland
    Army knew of sex abuse for years - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie
    Defence Forces declare war on bullies - National News, Frontpage - Independent.ie

    I'm sure Dr Clonan is rocking comfortably in his chair after this; yet another prime example of bad handling of the issue. Don't say ye weren't warned.

    Fining a girl €950 is stupid in the extreme.

    And the Defence Forces have clear procedural guidelines on harassment of all types. But she was find for abandoning her duties. Now cop on.

    Obviously it wasn't dealt with properly hence resorting to the press. Fining someone €950 under these circumstances is plain stupid.

    You're a moron and I'm not engaging you any further.

    Huddling amongst each other and keeping silent won't make this matter go away.

    Don't speak about it if you don't want to, but sooner or later, the issue's going to have to be dealt with.

    Of course the macho men such as yourself don't like that, do you?

    I've read all the links you provided and there is not a shred of honesty in anything you've posted regarding this issue. I doubt the person in question would even support your viewpoint. Why would you do that? Are you drunk or just plain stupid?
