Ireland, defence forces and sex offender registration

John Drennan at reports, No Army abusers put on sex register in two decades. July 3, 2022.
The Defence Forces have not referred anyone convicted of sexual assault or rape in a court martial to the sex offenders register during the 20 years it has been in operation.

Army chiefs admit they do not have full records of court-martial convictions for sexual assault or rape since 2002.

. . .

The Army's credibility on how it treats victims of sexual violence is already under strain in the wake of the searing Women of Honour documentary by Katie Hannon that was broadcast on RTÉ radio last year.
