Photos and videos to prove Tania Zaettas troop sex claim?May 24th, 2008 - 12:58 pm ICT by admin
Melbourne, May 24 (ANI): A confidential briefing document written to Australian Defence Minister Joel Fitzgibbon has revealed that rocker Angry Anderson had informed the department that Diggers based in Tarin Kowt, in Afganistan had “the photos and video” to prove allegations over TV and film celebrity Tania Zaettas troop sex row.
The Defence personnel would also be examining email traffic from Afghanistan as part of an investigation into whether video or photographic material existed and was sent back to Australia in breach of Defence regulations, reports the Daily Telegraph
The department has launched three separate enquiries into Zaettas troop sex scandal.
The investigations underway would follow leaking of the confidential briefing document containing unproven allegations against the Fear Factor host to the Daily Telegraph.
According to the defence sources, officers from the Defence Security Branch and the Military Police are investigating whether troops broke anti-fraternisation rules.
Apparently, Defence officials had been into the allegation for several weeks before the Minister’s office was informed.
Defence security investigators will be interrogating the Oz troops serving in the Middle East. They would also be examining email traffic from Afghanistan as part of an investigation into whether video or photographic material existed.
The officers are investigating how the document, rewritten last week after it breached privacy rules identifying those at the centre of unsubstantiated allegations, was leaked to the Daily Telegraph.
The third investigation would be looking at the way the department handles its briefing documents for the Minister, including a full review of officials with access to confidential ministerial briefings called “Hot Issues Briefs.
However, the 37-year-old actress strongly denies the allegations insisting “complete made-up lies”. (ANI)
