July 23, 2019
July 23, 2019: In response to the announcement of the U.K. Ministry of Defence's intention to form a new authority to deal with harassment within the armed forces, Bob Scott, Solicitor Advocate, Salisbury, Wiltshire, has written a letter to the London Times Newspaper on 18th July 2019 expressing his opinion that this change, "smacks of the reinvention of the wheel." Mr. Scott tells of his experience as a senior investigator in the army equal opportunities inquiry team in 1997. According to Mr. Scott, the team's, "effectiveness was demonstrated by decisions of the civilian employment tribunals which, in many cases, supported the team’s decisions....In or about 2010 the team was converted into the current service complaints investigation team, which is staffed by general duties military police and service lawyers."
