Hi Serious first post for a serious dilemma. A few months back a soldier in our establishment had good reason to submit a redress about bullying. Without going into the detail of the allegations a fair few witnessed the behaviour of one individual with the rank above Staff Sgt level making life very hard for individual below the rank of Sgt level. It went to the point of insults, over supervision and attempts to set the guy up to fail in given tasks and more! This had not been the first time the individual with the rank above Staff Sgt had been pulled up for such behaviour and he has a very long history of it in his past. This particular behaviour went on for a few months and the lad tried to get on with it, tried to resolve it via chatting and hoping it would die down. Sadly it did not and got to the point where he had no choice but to complain via the redress system. Here is the dilemma! When he tried to complain his OC made a number of attempts to get the soldier to drop the complaint and to not make it official. Not by promising to sort out the individual with the rank above Staff Sgt but by threats that he would make life more difficult for the soldier if he made it official. He give the soldier a number of (24 hr soak periods) to reflect if he made it official. Because the soldier stood his ground he was more or less frog marched off the camp and re-located some four hours away from his home. The OC went about making threats to some of the named witnesses, for example informing one he could be posted away due the soldier making the complaint, a promise of promotion to another of the witnesses, informing all that he had conducted an internal investigation and that there was no evidence (this was without even speaking to any one named as witnesses once about the alligations made) He was more or less telling us there was no evidence. The OC then took every opportunity to slate the soldier and make up ridiculous reasons for him making the complaint. The individual with the rank above Staff Sgt was left alone and allowed to work with all the named witnesses and so far nothing has happened. How can this chap get any form of redress when he is being shafted twice. What reason would the OC have to behave like he has towards this soldier under his wing, who has cause to make a illegitimate complaint. What is the OC trying to hide? (He is up for promotion soon) I feel I need to say something to someone but not sure who I should turn to, plus if I do will I get shafted as well for speaking out. Any pointers?
