The Children - Part Three

During his frantic attempts to rescue innocent children from the custody of their paedophile
father, the person whom the children identified as their abuser, Dr Pridgeon wrote to anyone who might be in a position of power to assist these children: Nobody did anything.
They all knew, but nobody did anything.
It is important to understand the new reality: in Australia, the de facto reality is that INCESTUOUS CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE IS NO LONGER A CRIME….

Mr Stephen Bennett, Shadow Minister of Child Safety
Ms Rosslyn Bates, Previous Shadow Minister of Child Safety
Dear Mr Bennett and Ms Bates,
I have been copying you both into the correspondence between myself and Hon Dianne Farmer, while I have been trying to draw the attention of the Minister to the appalling plight of the (the children), abducted by their mother (the protective mother) in 2014 after every other means of protecting these children had failed: for more than two years (the protective mother) only had supervised contact with her children and during her supervised contact, she was forced to hear their ongoing disclosures of sexual abuse, while being completely helpless to protect her children: she had lost custody of the children and the father, whom (the children) had disclosed was abusing them, was awarded sole parental responsibility.
The circumstances of this abuse, as detailed in the brief summary below, defy belief. Nearly two weeks after my first email, and despite follow up phone calls to the Ministers office, and three further desperate emails, also copied to you, I have had a single phone call from a person in the Department of Child Safety, advising me that the Minister did not have the power to intervene.
How should I believe this?
My emails were briefly blocked but seem now to be getting through to the Minister.
At the time of writing it is my understanding that (the children) still reside with the father, and are therefore at grave risk of further harm.
I have also requested that 26 persons who witnessed and mandatorily reported the children's disclosures write to the Minister directly and acquaint her personally with the facts of the case: There were numerous (?60+) disclosures to 26 witnesses, mandatorily reported, only one of these persons was ever interviewed by the Police, yet the Police advised the Family Court that the Child Sexual Abuse was Unsubstantiated.
As a consequence of the cascade of malfeasance, incompetence and inaction by all parties these children endured ongoing rape for years.
The most critical point that I can make to you is this: (the abusive father) was confronted about his abuse frequently, and yet the twins continued to disclose ongoing abuse. Abusers never stop. It cannot be believed that the twins are not being abused presently: there is every reason to believe that they are enduring abuse of every type at this time.
(the children) have to be removed to a place of safety. To ignore these verifiable facts of the abuse is nothing less than complicity with abuse.
I write to implore you both to cooperate to rescue these children. I cannot bear to think of what will be happening to them.
I am absolutely begging you to raise this with the Minister, in correspondence and in Parliament, with the utmost urgency.
These are questions that I have previously asked of the Minister, and received no answer:
Noting that the child’s best interests are paramount, as is the safety and well being and best interests of the children.
Q: COULD YOU PLEASE CONFIRM THAT THE DEPARTMENT HAS COMPLETED A SAFETY AND WELL BEING CHECK ON (the children), SINCE THEY HAVE BEEN PLACED BACK IN THE ALLEGED OFFENDERS FULL TIME CARE?
Q: IF A WELFARE CHECK WAS COMPLETED, CAN YOU CONFIRM THIS TOOK PLACE WITHOUT THE ALLEGED OFFENDER BEING IN THE ROOM OR WITHIN HEARING DISTANCE OF THE CHILDREN? I.E. WOULD THE CHILDREN HAVE FELT SAFE TO MAKE FURTHER DISCLOSURES OF ABUSE, AWAY FROM THEIR ALLEGED ABUSER OR HIS ASSOCIATES?
We note, the Minister is required by law to seek the children’s opinions and allow them to express their wishes in those matters that affect them directly and we request confirmation that you have sought this from the children. Noting:
These children are in need of protection as they have suffered significant harm and at an unacceptable risk, due to Family Court Orders they do not have a parent able to protect the children from the harm.
Can you confirm that you have informed the chief executive about harm or risk of harm to children?
Can you confirm the qualifications of the investigating officers on this case?
Can you confirm if these criminal matters of child sexual assault have been referred to the Police Commissioner?
As the Chief executive you have the power to restrict or impose conditions on, contact between the child and the child’s parents or members of the child’s family.
As the Chief executive you MUST evaluate all the evidence. This includes investigating all the notifiers and collating all the evidence relevant to protect the children. If the Chief executive has not completed this it is a nonfeasance and your department is knowingly leaving children in harms way.
To leave these children at risk of further harm is a breach of the Ministers statutory obligations and duty of care to protect these children.
Please could you ask these and and other questions of the Minister of Child Safety without delay.
