Public prosecutors are investigating accusations of bullying and sexual assault by an airman against a fellow serviceman at an air force training center near Jiashan Airbase (佳山) in Hualien County.
After an investigation by prosecutors, information on the case was released yesterday on an incident that allegedly occurred last month at the Air Education Training and Doctrine Development Command Center.
The center, administered by the Air Force Institute of Technology, is located near and affiliated with Jiashan Airbase, which features underground hangars and is one of Taiwan’s most important military facilities on the east coast.
According to the military’s preliminary investigation, an airman first class surnamed Ma (馬), 25, allegedly forcefully performed oral sex on a junior airman, 22, at the center’s barracks on July 17. [FULL STORY]
