An inquest is due to open today into the death of a female military police officer who was found hanged after saying she had been raped.
Corporal Anne-Marie Ellement, 30, originally from Bournemouth in Dorset, was found hanged at Bulford Barracks near Salisbury in Wiltshire on October 9, 2011.
She had alleged that she was raped by two fellow Royal Military Police (RMP) soldiers while she was drunk and although the complaint was investigated by the RMP's Special Investigations Branch, prosecutors decided not to bring charges.
Cpl Ellement was branded a liar after she made the allegation of rape.
An inquest in March 2012 recorded a verdict of suicide, but in August last year the High Court ordered a fresh hearing.
Cpl Ellement's sister Sharon Hardy , from Christchurch near Bournemouth, has said the RMP failed in its duty of care.
She said: ''Anne-Marie tried to seek justice on her own - sadly she never accomplished her fight and ended up taking her own life.
''Since her death we've learned of very serious failings within the original investigation - the lack of independence, properly trained staff and basic common sense made for a shambolic, failed inquiry which left our family outraged and extremely let down. ''
The inquest is expected to last at least two weeks.
