ROK Military Tries to Reduce Sex Crimes Within Its Ranks

This article would have been more useful if there was statistics available to show if there really is a sex crime problem in the ROK Army or not:

The military is stepping up moves against sex crimes among soldiers following a series of recent sexual harassment cases involving ranking military officials.

It has set a special period from July 30-Aug. 31 to “stamp out” sex crimes in the military. It is also striving to enhance military discipline and educational programs against sex crimes, a military official said.

“Sex crimes are things that seriously damage the moral fiber of the military. We have stringently dealt with those involved in the sex crimes and have alerted (military units) against them to prevent the repeat of such cases,” the official said under condition of anonymity.

During the special period, moral education for enlisted soldiers and enhancement of military discipline and patrol activities are to take place, the official said.

“Such cases take place clandestinely, so it is difficult to quickly discover then. Those who sexually harass male or female soldiers using their higher ranks will face clear disadvantages in terms of promotion and position changes. In fact, they, if caught, cannot get promoted.”

Victims in the military have apparently been reluctant to immediately report their cases to the authorities as the cases often involve their immediate superiors.  [Korea Herald]

    Well, at least their military follows suit with the civilian law enforcement. Only being able to enforce one law at a time during a special crackdown. After 31 Aug, it'll be cool to smack that nambi up again.

    Anyhoo, women really have no place in the military. It's just a political ploy and play pretend "gender equality". Whatever. :razz:

    It doesn’t help when the primary function of 80% of the military’s female population is making for senior officers. Have you ever been in a ROKA general’s office?

    If they want to reduce sex crimes, they need to loose the awesome fetish costumes in the above picture.

    That is getting my freak on!
