Sexual harassment against female soldiers


A South Korean Army division commander was dismissed Monday for allegedly sexually harassing female soldiers.

He was serving as commander of a division on the outskirts of Seoul. Other personal information was withheld as he’s likely to be court-martialed.

There are at least two other victims in the military in similar cases involving him, they added. The Army received a related tip-off last week and reported it to Defense Minister Song Young-moo, who immediately ordered the Army’s central investigation team to handle the incident.

The Army expressed regret over the sexual abuse case and vowed to deal sternly with it.

A total of 42 sexual abuse cases were reported in the military in the first half of this year.
