Defence Retreat – Lt Col Karel Dubsky

Army Media Release – Statement of service on retired Lieutenant Colonel Karel Dubsky

“Karel Dubsky was not a member of the group that called itself the Jedi Council and did not participate in the activities of that group. He freely assisted New South Wales Police and the Australian Defence Force Investigative Service with their investigations. On 20 October 2013, the Chief of Defence Force, General Hurley, accepted that Mr Dubsky was not part of the activities of the Council.

Defence would like to recognise Karel Dubsky�s service noting that he was a graduate of the United Kingdom Command and Staff College and conducted operational tours of East Timor in 2002 and Afghanistan in 2006/07.

Karel Dubsky was medically discharged from Defence in January 2015 as a result of injuries sustained during his service.”

2 Jujy 2018 – Defence Minister Marise Payne reveals she personally intervened in the case of Karel Dubsky – a senior soldier falsely accused of taking part in the Army’s so-called Jedi Council Sex Scandal


27 June 2018 – TV Channei 7 reports there are calls for former army chief General David Morrison to be stripped of his Australian of the Year



  1. Kay Danes, OAM says

    I am so pleased for Karel and his family but the nightmare he endured does not end with Army finally admitting their wrong doing. The culture of normalised deviance exists in Army, where a certain hierarchy believe themselves to be immune from breaching Defence policy and Commonwealth Law. They continue to be emboldened to slander innocent people, myself and my husband included. It’s time for a senate inquiry.
