How nice that it doesn’t always just happen to the others.
In this little country where nothing ever happens worth bothering about, we now have a really juicy scandal.
Not that it can match some other countries that I won’t name here, but for us it is a bit of an earthquake. Luckily most people are on holiday,so it might have all calmed down before they return,and if they didn’t find a Swiss newspaper they might not even know about it.
Fact is, the media found a story to liven up the Summer for the people who have stayed at home.
The recently appointed, Chief of the Swiss Armed Forces apparently isn’t so Persil White, as our Defense Minister made it appear as he proposed him to the rest of the Cabinet for the position.
In fact he had a law suite on his hands for so called “Domestic Violence” after his partner wanted to end the affair. He was also accused of stalking,and advertising her with photo, for sex services in several newspapers and Internet sites.
It was settled out of court for a certain sum.
Our Defense Minister hasn’t resigned, but has suspended the Brigadier General until the 20th of August in which time he can try and prove his innocence.
In doubt for the Accused.
Certainly a feast for the “away with the military ” brigade.
