Two sailors serving on the Kidd-class guided missile destroyer ROCS Kee Lung have been dismissed after footage was leaked allegedly showing the two having sex on board the warship, naval officers said yesterday.
An investigation was launched after a video was circulated online containing images of what appears to be a male and female sailor engaging in sexual activity, and a committee of supervising officials was convened to review proceedings, the Naval Fleet Command Headquarters told a news conference.
“After deliberation, it was decided that the two would receive two major demerits each and would be dismissed from service,” it said. “A review will also be conducted regarding responsibility and possible negligence of their service unit.”
The two were dismissed for breaches of the Armed Forces Disciplinary Maintenance Regulation (國軍軍風紀維護實施規定) and Gender Code of Conduct for Military Personnel (性別分際), the Naval Fleet Command Headquarters said. [FULL STORY]
