Success in Court Martial defeating perverting the course of justice allegations
However following an investigation that involved speaking to and taking witness statements from more than 30 members of his platoon, and those directly complained against, it was considered the allegations were false. Further it was alleged that R had subsequently attempted to bribe one of his platoon members to support the claims he was making.
Over the course of a trial at Catterick Court Martial various members of R’s platoon, the platoon Sergeant and section Corporal were challenged over their account that the incidents did not happen. Through cross examination discrepancies and inconsistencies were highlighted. After deliberating for slightly over an hour the Board acquitted Ex-Kgn R of all matters.
