Raging Sexual Abuse and Child Pornography Cases Exposed in Australian Defence

Secret defence documents expose countless unreported incidents of sexual assault, child pornography, drug abuse and trafficking including attempted murder by defence staff.

Most of the cases of sexual assault mentioned in these documents transpired following a public outcry and the Gillard government's promise to solve the issue of awful conduct among defence personnels.


The Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA) was rocked by the 'skype-sex incident' in April 2011.

The Seven Network as they are known as obtained 'Hot Issue Briefs' from all three services under Freedom of Information (FOI) laws.

This mainly draws attention towards grave cultural problems within the Australian military.

Sexual assault was the most common 'hot issue' with more than a dozen cases reported in eight months, The Herald Sun reports.

This includes one on Remembrance Day, November 11 in 2010 when a Brisbane-based soldier was accused of rape, stalking, deprivation of liberty and two instances of assaulting a female civilian at Enoggera barracks on November 10

Last September, only an air force member was charged with seven counts of indecent assault against a minor.
