Watson decision now available

The Australian Defence Force Discipline Appeal Tribunal has released the decision of Watson v Chief of Army [2010] AFDAT 3 which can be found here. The Tribunal quashed the conviction of absence without leave, engaging in insubordinate conduct and disobeying a lawful command on the grounds that the evidence was not admitted properly at trial. (Which the Government conceded on appeal.) The Tribunal directed that a verdict of not guilty be entered.
