Four soldiers testify at a military sexual assault trial

More evidence was presented in the trial of an army officer accused of sexually assaulting two female soldiers after a barbecue at a military barracks.

The defendant, who cannot be named by order of a military judge, has pleaded not guilty to sexually assaulting two non-commissioned officers during incidents on the night of June 25, 2020.

The judge, Colonel Michael Campion, also banned the publication of testimony given before the court-martial at the Military Justice Center in Dublin’s McKee Barracks today.

The officer is said to have attacked the two NCOs at a Defense Forces base, which also cannot be identified.

The accused appeared before a session of a military tribunal, composed of a military judge and a panel – the military equivalent of a jury – set up to try cases involving serious crimes and crimes involving senior officers.

Today four soldiers were called to testify in relation to the allegations made by an applicant.

After testifying, Col Campion ruled that media reports could claim the trial was ongoing but that “details of the evidence are not adequate.”

He said that as the “matter is ongoing” it would create a “risk of the process being compromised”.
