ADFA Officer Cadet charged
25 August 2011
An international Officer Cadet studying at the Australian Defence Force Academy has been charged with an Act of Indecency.
An allegation of inappropriate activity at ADFA was reported on the evening of Thursday 25 August 2011.
The matter was referred to the Australian Defence Force Investigative Service (ADFIS) who subsequently referred the matter to ACT Policing.
The Officer Cadet will face the ACT Magistrate's Court this morning.
Defence is providing full support to the individuals involved.
Defence, including ADFA, takes allegations of unacceptable behaviour very seriously and will cooperate with the relevant authorities.
As the incident is before the ACT Magistrate's Court, it would be inappropriate to comment further on the matter at this time.
