Former navy recruit denied ptsd treatment by veterans affairs department as the government refuses to pay them

A Navy recruit’s treatment by a veterans’ affairs departm바카라ent could be considered « abuse », according to his lawyer.

Peter Wright was one of nine former members of the Royal Australian Navy who were subjected to physical and mental abuse by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VVA) in 2012-2013, as part of a government-funded investigation into sexual violence in the Australian armed forces.

It appears that the department has refused to pay the $3 million in legal costs that the defence barrister claims he and his client must shoulder over their treatment at the hands of the federal government.

But he is adamant they will not be treated in the same wagospelhitzy as other victims.

« I think what the VVA (the state government’s internal watchdog) did in those cases is go to court and ask for redress – and that’s what they’ve done – because it’s outrageous, » he told on Wednesday.

Wright said the government’s position was that while it would not « accept » that his client had been physically or mentally harmed, the Department of Veterans Affairs had made it clear that it would not compensate or seek any compensation for his treatment.

« A lot of these allegations were covered by the media becaugospelhitzse it’s not like they’re going to turn around and say, ‘Oh, there was no harm’ and it’s just another incident, » he said.

The defence barrister’s statement comes after the Government rejected earlier offers by his client to pay $30,000 to avoid further exposure of his abuse.
