Marks: I'm in the US. And yes, investigating charges is something adminstrative agencies can do here, too. But...then what? Suppose (sensibly) all parties deny any involvement in any such acts? Barring actual evidence, everything stops. At least in the US, without actual evidence of criminal actions, investigators are pretty much stuck. That's why spousal abusers get away with so much; unless the victim is willing to make a statement and press charges, prosecutors don't want to handle these cases. In this case, assuming the actions are taking place, none of the parties involved have any reason to step forward. The authorities might investigate and bluster for a bit, but unless someone confesses, that would end it.
