February 20th According to Business Insider on the 20th, a female marine soldier of the United States released a number of videos on social media on the 18th, crying about the improper handling of male soldiers who committed sexual assault.
She said that the military had promised to take care of her, but later learned that the military had left the soldier in office and broke down. After seeing the video, U.S. Defense Secretary Austin expressed “deeply disturbed” and asked for a thorough investigation into the matter.
The female soldier reportedly said in the video that the military kept her in office despite evidence and the other party’s admission of sexual assault. And she further pointed out that this is the reason why female soldiers committed suicide.
A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Defense said that he wanted to know more details.
The Marine Corps subsequently said in a statement that the specific details of the incident were being collected, emphasizing that sexual assault was a crime and intolerable.
But later claimed that the incident “not sexual assault, but sexual misconduct”, and said that the female soldier was safe, and she had also talked to her superiors.
