‘Sadistic hazing for German recruits’
Soldiers of the German army base Pfullendorf have been found guilty of mistreatment and humiliation of recruits, weekly magazine Der Spiegel writes.
Pfullendorf is an ‘elite unit’ according to Der Spiegel.
There are said to be sadistic hazing rituals in the training for medics.
The magazine describes degrading practices at the barracks. Eg, newcomers would have to undress during training and recordings were made of that. Victims also had to insert tampons anally. That was filmed as well.
Also, soldiers would be tied up for hours naked on chairs while being sprayed with garden hoses. According to Der Spiegel, the Bundeswehr expects that investigation will find out still further abuses.
There were already in 2015 stories about misconduct in the medic training. Investigation, however, then did not discover anything. In October last year a female soldier approached the minister directly with new accusations. …
There is currently an investigation whether the commanding officers knew of the practices.
