Serious charges

Today's Irish Times reports an imminent sentence by court-martial. This is sufficiently important to be granted prime position, top right above the fold on page 3.

A matelot in the Irish Navy is on several charges:
  • unauthorised disclosure of the operation of State ships;
  • aiding drug running;
  • possession of cocaine ...
and, most heinous (if not inexplicable) of all:
  • being in possession of eight counterfeit hair straighteners.
This last is:
considered prejudicial to good order and discipline under military law.
The mind boggles. Sphere: Related Content
