RAN Chief speaks out about sex scandal

The Royal Australian Navy has issued a press release, a day after national media broke a sex scandal story, in which Vice Admiral Russell Crane, Chief of Navy, condemns the misconduct. The RAN press release can be found here. I've previously discussed the scandal at length here. VADM Crane should order a day (or half-day) service-wide stand-down for sexual harassment training to all officer and enlisted personnel and not wait for an ADFIS inquiry to be complete especially given the past documented problems within RAN. Statistics show that the RAN has had triple the amount of unacceptable behaviour complaints filed as compared to the other services.
