Disciplinary cases at New Zealand installations

The Manawatu Standard has run this informative article about disciplinary cases at several New Zealand military installations. Nothing dramatic in the data; as elsewhere, driving offenses make up a large part of the caseload.
Six internal complaints [at Ohakea] were laid and eight offences, for driving, assault and alcohol or drugs, went through to civilian courts. . . .
Personnel charged in civil court were obligated to report their offences to military police, but weren't subject to "double jeopardy", under the discipline act, but some penalties had a knock-on effect for their jobs.
