CESNORSHIP REPOST: Chris Puplick AM former Anti-Discrimination Board president & chairman of JusticeLegal.nsw.gov.au writes a paper on how dare police target gay pedophiles who anal rape young boys, because the convicted perpetrators may kill themselves!

Chris Puplick AM former Anti-Discrimination Board president head of JusticeLegal.nsw.gov.au writes a paper on how dare police target gay pedophiles who anal rape young boys, because the convicted perpetrators may kill themselves!

I was doing some research on MASS TRANNY WOMENS BATHROOM USER IN NSW PRISONS POLITICALLY CORRECT AIDS RAPE GATE on the first transsexual to both use a woman's bathroom and use it in a woman's prison to boot - all before before having a sex change, and Chris Puplick's direct responsibility for orchestrating the whole saga (confirmed in Parliament by his NAME!). Anyway whilst researching him and I came across paper he wrote dismissing the actions of the most infamous police protected pedophile in Australia's history Robert "Dolly" Dunn! NSW Police Corrective Services Investigations covered up the Mass Rapes in a Woman's prison so he can be where he is today. Further details (i.e. a fully sourced UN-Human Rights Complaint DOSSIER with exhibits to be sponsored by Russia) is forthcoming. In the same year the mass rapes were covered up (2001) by NSW Police Corrective Services Investigations and the Parole Board that gave Noel Crompton Hall a Release Date - Chris Pupick got an Member of the Australian Order. Those rapes had to be covered up to ensure this man continues to rise in power.


It's not an honor! (www.itsanhonour.gov.au) This is the darkest day for Australia day awards long history. This man is our biggest national disgrace in history. Our greatest gay activist is responsible for Australia's own Aru Garib Prison Rape and torture incident that had to be covered up, all by his own making and his own policy to ensure his future success estimate at ~1 million dollars a year in board postings on government agencies. We can prove he's fully responsible for the incident, then directing hush money funds >250k plus housing benefits to the rapist and 250k+ through the gender center he funded after the incident, as well as when the policy to put men with penises in women's prisons was being drafted. The scandal will get bigger - stay tuned. 

Chris Puplick has confirmed he's the man behind John Sunol's arrest for allowing someone overseas outside Australian jurisdiction to break mass aids rape gate before his arrest. News to follow! Again the Anti-Discrimination Board is using G.R.B. as their proxy only this time with the police. This is scandalous stuff!

The Dossier on the politically correct mass rape gate when finished will be a Russian Human Rights Complaint against Australia in the UN, also with the persecution of John Sunol for being involved in criticizing Australian government involvement in the human trafficking of a Russian Infant Drake Newton in the "abcplugspedos" decision featuring highly. Also the NSW Police attempt 6 months ago to take down this blog post with threats of arrest if it wasn't deleted to censor content "Alexander John Wakefield" wrote he has censored himself from his law firm's blog that is very incriminating. The threats weren't carried out until we stumbled onto something even bigger! Question time in NSW and the ACT is coming soon! Chris Puplick is finished - because he wouldn't be where he is now if it wasn't for the PC mass rape cover-up. Full details coming soon, and research dossier distributed to the players involved to do their own research as of now!

Chris Puplick was resigned from the Anti-Discrimination Board due to some corrupt dealings I have known about for a long while. I have a lot in reserve that will be coming out shortly - especially when my groundbreaking interview with Jim Fetzer PhD gets released in the next few days.

Update: The research is ongoing into the ICAC complaint & cover-up. He was found guilty of giving false evidence to the Ombudsman but let off the hook by leftist DPP head known for covering up child porn stashes of his fellow prosecutors Nicholas Cowdery QC who is also an the "harm minimization" [drug decriminalization] "ambassador" with him. A whole new post on this will be released soon on how Puplick used the ADB to make a quick $6000 repayment on a loan his mate owed him in a fabricated complaint against ABC Wollongong. That story is so complex it deserves a new blog post as this guy gives generously when it comes to rape / corruption scandals.

http://www.bmartin.cc/dissent/contacts/au_wba/whistle199708.html
Chris Puplick, Chair of the Anti-Discrimination Board, tried to defend the gay community against the unfortunately homophobic slant taken by the Royal Commission, while not downplaying the effect of paedophiles on their victims. (He distinguished himself from the WBA viewpoint in question time, by claiming that all this information now in the public arena about paedophilia is there because of NSW's effective Protected Disclosures Act! Challenged on this by me and Alastair Gaisford, he was unable to give any instance where the Act had worked, but remained convinced of its efficacy.)


This was written by Puplick in 1997 when Robert "Dolly" Dunn was still a child-sex fugitive from justice in April 3 months before he was extradited to Australia. SHAME! (Speculation: It returned to it's "senses" after taking 4 secret submissions by Christopher Puplick to STOP INVESTIGATING HOMOSEXUAL PEDOPHILES FOR THE SAKE OF THE GAY COMMUNITY)



Most of the world considers gay anal sex with 16 year olds to be pederasty, it comes under the definition of pederasty. Pederasty was made legal, and is listed one of the great achievements of the NSW gay and lesbian rights lobby on their history -> about us page.

Did he just defend Robert "Dolly" Dunn who Deputy Comissioner Catherine Judith Burn close friend & mentor Lola Scott gave a P16 Immunity form to so he could get police protection as an "informant" and rape a larger number of kids (2x in Melbouirne) then flee Australia! Did he just underline and claim these guys arealleged pedophiles? Alleged evil? He only underlined / bolded that claim in the whole article. Shameful!  Dolly Dunn was connected  to DFAT diplomats just like the @NEWLifeIVF gay pedophile ring I am rolling up now! Did he just say they had sex with "teens" when Dolly Dunn + gay partner raped pubescent little boys? I was a child, and I remember the footage of them staking out the local watering hole as seen on ABC. and commenting on young boys swimming in it. He has no excuse for ignorance of what Robert Dolly Dunn did whilst at large in 1997. SHAME!
Puplick gave 4 submissions to the Wood Royal Commission to steer them away from gay pedophiles that remain classified to this day. Time to declasify them now that the pedophiles are already dead and wont kill themselves again!

HELLO!


I have it on tape from a police source that Lola Scott mentored "" "" "" and all the police insiders know that is true!

Sacked police chief protected pedophiles, inquiry told

February 19 2003


Sacked senior NSW policewoman Lola Scott was involved in a cover-up of a pedophilia ring involving notorious child sex offenders, a federal parliamentary inquiry heard today.
Former NSW policeman Glen McNamara today presented his submission to a parliamentary standing committee into crime, alleging Ms Scott helped protect convicted pedophiles Robert "Dolly" Dunn and Colin Fisk.
Mr McNamara, a former undercover police officer, said he wore a concealed listening device to record conversations between Dunn and other pedophiles about a drugs ring and their pedophilia activities.
He said Ms Scott, who was sacked late last year by Police Commissioner Ken Moroney, was made aware of an undercover investigation into Dunn in 1989 but ignored evidence which could have convicted him.
"The tape was perfectly clear and audible," Mr McNamara said in his statement.
"Lola Scott took possession of this audio tape. I strenuously advised (her) that Dolly Dunn and Colin Fisk be immediately arrested. My advice was not acted upon."
Mr McNamara said Ms Scott authorised a P16 form for Dunn in 1990 which protected him from prosecution.
"(But) she had an extraordinary knowledge of (Dunn's) criminal activities," Mr McNamara told the inquiry.
The committee resumed today despite Labor MP Daryl Melham moving in December 2002 to have evidence heard behind closed doors.
The move led to accusations by committee chair and Liberal MP Bronwyn Bishop that the ALP was trying to stifle witnesses who may have given damaging evidence against the NSW Labor government in the run-up to next month's election.
Former homicide detective and National Crime Authority investigator Mick McGann, who is due before the inquiry tomorrow, is expected to tell the commission the Wood Royal Commission into police corruption was itself corrupt.
The inquiry continues.

Read the full Parliamentary inquiry into Lola Scott and the P16 immunity from public prosecution for Robert "Dolly" Dunn.

Listen to Glen McNamara tell Radio NZ about NSW Police protecting pedophiles and threatening to kill his family like the women who were raped on Chris Puplick's orders by Noel Crompton Hall fled to NZ too at one point:
Many believe NSW Police used roger the doger to frame up Glen McNamara with the murder of a NSW Police drug dealing informant Jamie Goe. I am one. I was reaching out to Glen McNamara before he was framed.


And he attacks the Wood Royal Comission which was run by a pedophile James Wood outed as such in this document who "didn't want to scandalize the judiciary" as Bernard Gaynor exposes:
http://bernardgaynor.com.au/just-a-coincidence/

https://www.scribd.com/doc/299702939/HENRY-Dean-Thomas-Chisholme-AI-140618
Leaked document that only the current royal Comission was meant to have custody of in my possession naming Justice James Wood himself as a gay child raping pedophile. 

The famed Wood Royal commission praised by the ABC was a whitewash and we all know it! How can we trust it with the link above to a boy rape victims's leak document from the current royal commission into pedophilia naming justice james wood as a gay judge child rapist?

It would be worth Getting Glen McNamara's book just to read all the examples of Lola Scott, Catherine Judith Burns mentor helping Robert "Dolly" Dunn mass child rapists & the man defended by Chris Puplick AM. "" "" the biggest serial litigant at the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board is in direct contact with Catherine Judith Burn's on a daily basis as this blog has exposed. The only way to keep Garry Burns landmark homosexual vilification case law alive is to Put John Sunol in jail and kill him so he can't appeal

ARREST OF ROBERT DUNN

Reverend the Hon. F. J. NILE: My question without notice is directed to the Attorney General, representing his portfolio and the portfolio of the Minister for Police. Is it a fact that the Australian Federal Police knew that Robert "Dolly" Dunn was in Honduras at least 10 months ago? Is it a fact that New South Wales police knew that he was in Honduras prior to 60 Minutes personnel contacting them? In light of the Wood royal commission’s investigation into paedophilia, will the Attorney General explain why the New South Wales Government did not put pressure on the Federal Government to extradite Mr Dunn from Honduras earlier this year? Why did the Government not send any New South Wales police officers or other law enforcement officers to Honduras to speed up his extradition? What did the Attorney General know about Mr Dunn’s whereabouts? When were the Attorney General and the Minister for Police first informed of Mr Dunn’s whereabouts?

The Hon. J. W. SHAW: I was given no information about the whereabouts of Mr Dunn. As I am sure Reverend the Hon. F. J. Nile is aware, the extradition is in the hands of the Federal Attorney-General and the Australian Federal Police. Today the Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs, Mr Downer, and the Federal Attorney-General, Mr Williams, were asked questions on this matter in the House of Representatives. Mr Williams said that he is sensitive about dealing with operational matters of this kind when extradition proceedings are pending. It has been alleged by the press that the Australian Federal Police knew the whereabouts of Mr Dunn well before action was taken - and well before the 60 Minutes team found him. Questions could be asked about that matter but it is difficult to deal with it comprehensively when extradition proceedings are continuing in Honduras. I will liaise with the Federal Attorney-General to see whether any steps should be taken to improve matters in the future or to uncover the facts in relation to this exercise.

Reverend the Hon. F. J. NILE: I ask a supplementary question. The Attorney General stated that this is a Federal Government matter. Has the New South Wales Government formally requested the Federal Government to extradite Mr Dunn from Honduras?

The Hon. J. W. SHAW: The New South Wales Government formally asked the Federal Government to take the steps available to it to extradite Mr Dunn from wherever he might be found.

Rainbow Child Sex Labor MP copies the worlds of Chris Puplick - only toned down to defend the gay lobby and the Robert Dolly Dunn Mass rape gate with police protection:


The Hon. I. COHEN [3.57]: I commend Reverend the Hon. F. J. Nile for moving this motion. Clearly this is a matter of concern to most people in the community. It is imperative that members of Parliament inform the community of our intentions with regard to this extremely grave matter. With the royal commission we have a unique opportunity, with a very powerful instrument, to investigate serious problems in our society. I understand that the terms of the commission have been extended by some three months. As a Green member of this Parliament I welcome that extension, which will allow a detailed investigation into this most vexed issue.

The issue of paedophilia must be vigorously pursued. However, I am most concerned about rumours about the commission and the fragility of statements that have been made about prominent people giving evidence. I am also concerned that there should be no cover-up in the process that is being undertaken and that everyone, no matter how public and powerful, will be treated equally. There have been grave reactions to statements made about particular individuals in the community. However, at the same time, I am concerned, for example in the case of Philip Bell, that children have committed suicide because they have become so confused and distressed by the perverse and low behaviour of such people.

Page 5630

It is important to consider what the commission can do and how it will seek to expose certain paedophile networks. It is important also to consider the cross-generational aspects. In pursuing our aims to expose paedophilia when investigating such matters as the Mr Bubbles case and associated police corruption, the terrible stories about Philip Bell and Robert "Dolly" Dunn and the horrors that shocked Belgium recently - which was the work of a heterosexual - I hope that we do not embark on a witch-hunt for homosexuals. Many homosexuals and heterosexuals support this motion. Of paramount importance is that exposing paedophilia is not about making judgments about one's sexual preferences or morals, it is about protecting children. Those responsible for protecting paedophiles must be rooted out. Certainly the royal commission is an effective means of achieving that.

I am concerned that the original focus of the royal commission may become diluted so that the commission has no further impact. It is important that there be no confusion in that regard in any investigation involving paedophilia or pederasty. It is extremely important that only crimes against very young people are considered in the context of this issue. Any responsible person in the community would agree that those very young people must be protected, that the process must be accountable and that those children need a voice of support. Approximately 80 per cent of all child molestation offences are committed by heterosexuals, and 75 per cent of those cases involve the molestation of girls by people they know, including family members. These crimes are occurring in suburbia. The commission must have appropriate resources to deal with real issues. These crimes, which have gone undetected for so long against children in our community, will not be tolerated any longer.

The royal commission is the appropriate forum through which effective action in the community can be taken to remove this terrible cancer that occurs all too frequently in our society. If the royal commission continues its investigations in conjunction with bureaucracies that are charged with the protection of children in our community, with the support of police who now appreciate the full consequences of failing to take sufficient notice of the plight of young people in society, monumental change will be achieved. However, a superficial witch-hunt will not get to the root of the problem, which is so pervasive in our society. Unless cross-generational mechanisms are provided to allow children to grow up without feelings of guilt and fear, which often scar them for life, we will have failed these young people dismally despite the efforts of the royal commission. I congratulate those members who have spoken in this debate. This important matter must be continually debated and aired in the community in order to protect those who are the most vulnerable in society.

Did she just say that 20% of all child rapes are done by 1.7% (according to US CDC) of the population being homosexuals? It's actually 35% according to bravehearts.org.au's fact sheet. So how many times more likely does Rainbow Labor admit a homosexual is to rape someone's child based on her statement. Interesting food for thought.


No tears as Dolly Dunn dies in prison

  • Stephanie Gardiner and Rachel Browne



FEW will mourn the passing of the convicted pedophile Robert "Dolly" Dunn, who died yesterday at Long Bay Prison Hospital.
The 68-year-old was jailed in 1997 and was serving a 20-year sentence for a series of sexual offences against boys in the 1980s and 1990s.
Dunn (pictured), a former schoolteacher, would have been eligible for parole in 2015, a NSW Corrective Services spokesman said yesterday.
Dunn had heart disease and a range of other medical problems.
"It's suspected heart failure but as in every death in custody, there will be a coronial inquest," Corrective Services assistant commissioner Brian Kelly said. "His time in jail has generally been served in isolation from other prisoners because of the nature of his sex offences."
In 1996 a Royal Commission chaired by Justice James Woods was shown home videos and photographs from Dunn's collection featuring images of child sex abuse involving Dunn himself.

Dunn fled Australia for Lombok in Indonesia where he was discovered living with up to four Australian men who would lure boys back to their home with gifts of clothes and cigarettes.
Realising he was under investigation by Australian police, he fled again, to Honduras in Central America.
He was tracked down to a hotel in the capital of Tegucigalpa where he was sprung by a 60 Minutes television team in 1997.
Journalist Steve Barrett, who led the 60 Minutes team, said Dunn ruined the lives of hundreds of young boys and showed no remorse for his deeds.
"I said to him, `Why did you take photographs of these boys? they're only children?'," Barrett said.
"And he said, `Don't you? Don't you have memorabilia? Didn't you take photos when you got married?' I was just gobsmacked."
Dunn was extradited back to Australia the following year to face charges of pedophilia.
From jail he repeatedly made statements that he saw nothing wrong with sex between men and boys - JUST LIKE ANTI-DISCRIMINATION BOARD PRESIDENT CHRIS PUPLICK!
Child protection advocate Hetty Johnston, of Bravehearts, said: "I don't think there would be too many people mourning the passing of Robert `Dolly' Dunn. I think we've got the judges to thank that they kept him in jail until he died because he was dangerous."

Dirty Work by Glen McNamara

A book review published in The Whistle (Newsletter of Whistleblowers Australia), No. 63, July 2010, pp. 13-14

Reviewer: Brian Martin

Glen McNamara was not a whistleblower. He was just doing his job. He worked as an undercover cop in Sydney's Kings Cross in the late 1980s. He was good at his work - and because he was effective against criminals, he was treated just like a whistleblower.
McNamara tells his story in his book Dirty Work. He starts with his earlier police work. This is vivid and eye-opening, with many episodes revealing the sordid behaviours encountered by police in a crime-ridden area of Sydney.
Then came McNamara's undercover work. He gives a detailed account of his efforts targeting paedophiles who manufactured and sold drugs to help maintain their sexual activities with young boys. The paedophiles' lifestyle was expensive because they needed to pay corrupt police for protection. Some of the police were involved in the drug trade too.
Several of the names later became well known, in particular paedophiles Colin Fisk and Dolly Dunn and policeman Larry Churchill. McNamara was dealing with them before their public notoriety.
McNamara built up trust among his targets. They thought he was another bent cop able to make big drug deals. To obtain evidence against the criminals - paedophiles and drug dealers and corrupt cops - McNamara needed the support of a special police unit, the Internal Security Unit (ISU). It provided him with covert recording devices and maintained surveillance on key figures.
The trouble was that McNamara's identity was known within the ISU and the ISU's security was slack. Someone there leaked the information to Churchill. After that, McNamara was a marked man - and his life was at risk.
Due to his experiences, McNamara became highly cynical about the police. Most fell into one of two categories: those who were corrupt and those who would do nothing against the corrupt ones.
Most distressing of all was when McNamara trusted someone, and that trust was violated. McNamara looked up to one experienced officer as the epitome of a straight cop - and was betrayed by him.
When McNamara learned that his undercover role had been revealed to corrupt cops, he initially still trusted a few. After receiving death threats over the phone, the ISU arranged a new phone number for him - but it soon was exposed in an ad in the Police News. So McNamara personally arranged for another phone number using a false name, and had no problems after that.
McNamara requested additional weapons from the police to defend himself. Before long, he was asked to turn in the only weapon he had. His enemies obviously had learned about his request and had the connections to thwart him and, worse, put him in a more vulnerable position. So McNamara obtained weapons via his father.
In the midst of this tense period, McNamara arranged for a trip to the US - a holiday with his wife. To obtain leave from his job, he had to provide a detailed itinerary. While in Los Angeles, he received word of a plot to kill him while in the US. His itinerary, supposedly closely guarded, had gotten in the hands of his enemies. This news was incredibly unnerving to McNamara but had a more serious effect on his wife, who miscarried.
For whistleblowers who are part of a deeply corrupt culture, Dirty Work has lessons. One of them, as I've mentioned, is to trust no one, and organise protection through channels outside the workplace. As McNamara puts it:
I was in a process of change. Unlearning the lessons of a lifetime. I now knew that I could not rely on Police to help me in a time of need and I could not trust them with sensitive information. (p. 185).
Information from McNamara's undercover work was used to arrest a few cops, so what did they do? They said McNamara was himself corrupt. He spent days being grilled about false allegations. The lesson for whistleblowers is a familiar one: when you expose corruption, expect to be labelled corrupt yourself. McNamara, luckily, was able to ward off the allegations because his accusers were unable to formulate a solid case.
McNamara wanted justice to be done, but it wasn't easy. Although his undercover work had resulted in the seizure of numerous videotapes made by Dolly Dunn of his sex with young boys, Dunn was not charged with any sexual offences. The story about what happened to Dunn, Colin Fisk and corrupt police is convoluted. Suffice it to say that the network of corrupt cops hindered any serious action against either paedophilia or police corruption.
McNamara is cynical about media coverage of police corruption. He says that those he describes as lazy journalists put out stories, based on their police contacts, that missed the real issues, without checking facts themselves. McNamara had personal experience of this: after the arrest of Churchill, headlines came out saying that a "supergrass" was involved. A supergrass is a member of a criminal syndicate who gives evidence for the police. The media stories were referring to McNamara - not by name, but recognisably to police - as a criminal rather than an undercover cop. Police did nothing to correct the misleading impression.
The media were being force fed the Police line that they were targeting suspect and corrupt officers with covert proactive investigations and the punch line was that the good guys were winning the fight. ... the public was reassured that even though Churchill was a criminal, everything else was perfect because Churchill had been caught and there would be no more Police corruption because of his capture. (p. 206)
The lesson from this is not to trust media stories about police corruption. You may be missing the true story. To get something closer to the true story, you need to read books like Dirty Work. But you may need to wait.
Dirty Work tells about events more than 20 years ago. One advantage of this is that subsequent events - such as the NSW Police Royal Commission in the mid 1990s and prosecutions of some key figures such as Dolly Dunn - enable some of the threads of the story to be completed.
But much still remains unsaid. McNamara learned about paedophilia, drug dealing and police corruption at high levels. But only some names can be named, some because they have died, for example John Marsden, solicitor and member of the Police Board, who died of cancer, and Frank Arkell, lord mayor of Wollongong, who was murdered, each accused of paedophilia. But others are alive and could sue. Dirty Work is a true story, but there is still enough unaddressed corruption to ensure that not all truths can yet be told.

Australian quizzed over Bali child sex

By Wayne Miller and Candace Sutton
January 18, 2004
The Sun-Herald



Investigation ... the photograph on William Brown's passport.
A former Australian diplomat and associate of notorious pederast Robert "Dolly" Dunn is being held in a Bali jail on child sex charges as Indonesian police investigate his alleged role in a major pedophile ring.
William Stuart Brown, 51, had a 16-year career, which culminated in a posting as second secretary at AIDAB, the predecessor to Australia's aid bureau, Ausaid, in Indonesia between 1982 and 1984.
Brown was arrested on January 5 and is in custody at police headquarters at Karangasem, in eastern Bali, over allegations he had sex with boys aged 14 and 16.
The Australian Federal Police have confirmed they are keen to interview him.
Karangasem regional police chief Senior Superintendent Martanto said Brown had been under intermittent surveillance and the subject of several major operations in the region, one of the poorest in Bali, over the past two years.
While a diplomat, Brown was known for his "flamboyant homosexual parties" in Jakarta and for the fact he was dramatically recalled in May, 1984, because of an incident with a male child. It was later revealed Brown lived openly in Canberra with an under-age Indonesian boy.
Brown retired from the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) in 1996 to Indonesia, where he lived with under-age boys on the island of Lombok.
That year, he confirmed from his jail cell this weekend, he hosted a visit by Robert Dunn, when the former schoolteacher was fleeing NSW police.
Dunn was later captured in Honduras.
Brown fled Lombok when he learnt he was being investigated by the AFP as part of Project Mandrake, set up to track down suspects under Australia's child sex laws.
In 1997, DFAT refused to release documents about sordid sex allegations surrounding Brown because they might damage his "unblemished" reputation.
Brown has been a regular visitor to Indonesia and Sri Lanka, India and Singapore.
He has travelled freely to Australia since 1996. He has not been stopped for questioning.
Bali police allege Brown befriended two youths at a secluded local property. One youth allegedly later complained of internal injuries.


Foreign Minister Alexander Downer said yesterday he was confident that no pedophile activity had occurred among Australian diplomats since he had become minister.

THE SOURCE OF ALL OUR DISCONTENTS Address by CHRIS PUPLICK President, NSW Anti-Discrimination Board Chair, NSW Privacy Committee. Australian Institute of Criminology Conference Paedophilia : Policy and Prevention University of Sydney 14 - 15 April 1997 “Thou shalt not suffer a witch to live.” Exodus 22: 18 2 I think it appropriate to begin my comments today on the subject of paedophilia and the issues of public education to which this Session relates, by examining in some detail the spotlight that has been thrown on that unacceptable abuse of the young as revealed by way of official inquisition. After two years of inquiries into police corruption including an examination of the alleged protection of paedophiles by the Police, the Wood Royal Commission has come to an end. The inquiry sat for 365 hearing days, heard 630 witnesses and provided the tabloid press in particular with at least a page a day of often sensational news. The costs of the inquiry have been high: more than $100 million in costs to the taxpayer according to a report in The Weekend Australian of 15-16 March 1996. The same report notes that more than 10 people involved in some way with the Commission have committed suicide including police, school headmasters and alleged paedophiles. In October last year the paedophile-related terms of reference were extended to cover the adequacy of laws against paedophilia, penalties and whether government agencies and police had done enough to protect children from sexual abuse. The Royal Commissioner’s final report is due in June. In that report he will make recommendations arising from his inquiries into various matters related to paedophilia. He will do so after considering a total of 44,811 pages of transcript generated from both the police corruption and paedophile hearings. I do not envy him his task. The expectations aroused by his inquiries have been and continue to be immense. He will require the wisdom - and political skills - of Solomon to produce a report the recommendations of which will be sufficiently 3 acceptable to be implemented. The record of Royal Commissions in such regards is not impressive. Yet the public appetite - or at least the media’s perception of the public’s appetite - for some corrective action weeding out paedophilia from both public and private life and better protecting children against sexual abuse demands satisfaction. What else could you expect with headlines for example in The Daily Telegraph such as ‘Evil network preys on the young’ (DT 21/8/96) or ‘Silence of police appalling’ (DT 11/12/96) or ‘State ward “put in care of paedophile”’ (DT 21/8/96) or ‘Police visited boy brothel: ex-lawyer’ (The Australian 20/8/96) or - in what I regard as the most telling and apt headline of all from The Sydney Morning Herald of 9 December 1996, ‘Sexual Hysteria’. ‘Sexual Hysteria’ by reporter Richard Guillart began: “Reports of child sexual assault generate much social anxiety. But is there really widespread corruption of innocence or are we experiencing a backlash against the permissive society?”. Guillart examined allegations of children-as-sexual-molesters, with a report from the NSW Child Protection Council which “urged the State Government to establish facilities for treating young sex offenders, saying sexual abuse by children under 10 and juveniles aged 10 to 18 was a ‘significant’ problem.” The reality of child sexual assault on other children, Guillart finds, is rather at a distance from the social hysteria that has developed around the subject. There are few studies of the matter. One British study in 1991 for example, contradicting the premise of the NSW Child Protection Council comments, found that only 1% of such alleged offenders were under 12. 4 Another report Guillart quotes “circulating among NSW Government Departments is called Organised Sadistic Abuse: Current knowledge, controversies and treatment issues. Prepared by the Department for Women, the 49-page draft document asserts that organised groups of Australian paedophiles are using ‘ mind control techniques’ to brainwash women and children into participating in ‘heinous activities’... In November last, during her speech to Parliament about paedophile networks, Labor MP Franca Arena cited the report and urged her fellow Parliamentarians to read it. Arena later appeared at a rally in Hyde Park with several women who say they are survivors of such abuse.” Guillart quotes the concerns of experts like Dr Diana Kenny, associate professor of psychology at the University of Sydney at the way these sorts of alarmist theories can take off without having any foundation in fact. She is reported as saying: “You look at some of this literature and it’s just shot through with flaws, but it takes five years arguing in the learned journals for it to be debunked.” The ‘sexual hysteria’ we have seen develop out of the Royal Commission - but by no means confined to it - in the past eighteen months bears considerable historical parallel and not, I am afraid, to our credit as a rational and enlightened society. A similar hysteria was at the heart of the witch-crazes in Europe of the Reformation and Counter-Reformation. As the great British historian, Hugh Trevor-Roper put it thirty years ago in his landmark work, The European Witch-craze of the 16th and 17th Centuries (1967, Penguin): “Any society is liable, at times, to collective emotion. There is the exalted ‘messianism’ which is common in rural societies in medieval Europe......There is also the undefined ‘great fear’, such as ran through rural 5 France at the beginning of the revolution of 1789. And these emotions tend to take stereotypical form. How such stereotypes are built up is a problem in itself; but once they are built up they can last for generations, even centuries. The stereotype in German society has long been the Jewish conspiracy.......In America today it seems to be the Red scare. In continental Europe, in the two centuries after the Witch Bull, it was the witch-craze. So firmly had the mythology of Satan’s kingdom been established in the declining Middle Ages that in the first centuries of ‘modern’ Europe - to use a conventional notation of the time - it became the standard form in which the otherwise undefined fears of the society became crystallised. Just as psychopathic individuals in those years centred their separate fantasies......on the Devil, and thus gave an apparent objective identity to their subjective experiences, so societies in fear articulated their collective neuroses about the same obsessive figure, and found a scapegoat for their fears in his agents, the witches......Thus the mythology created its own evidence, and effective disproof became ever more difficult. In times of prosperity the whole subject might be ignored except on a village level, but in times of fear men do not think clearly: they retreat to fixed positions, fixed prejudices. So social struggle, political conspiracy, conventional hysteria, private hallucination were all interpreted in the light of a mythology which, by now, had been extended to interpret them all, and the craze was renewed.” While the media in Australia of late have shown a highly voyeuristic fascination with paedophilia - however loosely defined - a similar fixation with paedophile folk demons and a moral panic is evident in other countries as well. The preoccupations of the American media with the strange life and sexual abuse in death of six year old beauty queen Jo Beth Benet recently is one but example. Even that most august of journals The Guardian Weekly (23 March 1997) reported: 6 “200 French paedophiles held ...... linked to a child pornography ring .....French police said...some of the 5,000 video cassettes they seized featured footage of babies submitted to sexual acts. Police in Nice, who spearheaded the five-month nation-wide police operation, said that among those detained were five school teachers, two head teachers, members of the judiciary and a television journalist......The Nice police were at pains to point out that the detained adults - apprehended in almost every French departement - were from all social backgrounds. They were mostly married men.” We are equally familiar with the appalling scandals now rocking the political, police and judicial establishments in Belgium over exactly the same issue. Two points emerge as of some relevance here. The first is the implication of heterosexual men in positions of contact, responsibility and authority over children in a conspiracy and secondly the implication that some conspiracy involving men of considerable power and influence within French and Belgian society to suppress all knowledge of these activities. Again need one unduly emphasise the parallels with the current paedophile concerns in our own society? What little rigorous academic research has been done in either Australia or other Anglophone countries confirms that paedophilia - that is sexual abuse of prepubescent children - is overwhelmingly committed by heterosexual men, men who identify themselves as heterosexual whether their abuse is of girls or boys; that overwhelmingly paedophile abuse is however upon young girls and it is committed by men within the family or immediate social constellation of the children - most typically by foster or step-fathers, uncles, a neighbour who might be friends of the child’s parents and so on. The paedophile is more likely friend than stranger, more likely heterosexual than homosexual; the victim more likely female than male. 7 One might give pause thus to reflect upon the observations of the noted English anthropologist, Sir Edmund Leach in the BBC Reith Lectures in 1967 (reported in The Listener 30 November 1967) when he said: “Far from being the basis of the good society, the family with its narrow privacy and tawdry secrets, is the source of all our discontents”. It appeared to take the most extraordinary line of questioning of adult gay men who admitted sex with teenagers close to the age of majority, (some of them lying about their ages) in the NSW Royal Commission and subsequent uproar throughout the gay and lesbian communities before the Commission remembered and recognised those central salient facts - a matter I shall return to in a moment. The same edition of The Guardian Weekly to which I referred earlier, reports on the latest ‘UK paedophile ring’ with a story detailing lawyers demands for a public inquiry into abuse by staff at children’s homes in northwest England based on claims that “a paedophile network as well organised as the Mafia could be at work in the UK.” The solicitor leading the group according to the report “agreed the homes were more strictly controlled now than when the abuse took place in the 1960s, ‘70s and ‘80s, but said it was important to study the methodology of the paedophile. ‘He is not a man in a dirty mac who looks like a child abuser. He looks like you and me.’ He claimed that children’s organisations such as the NSPCC and the Children’s Society were anxious about the question of a paedophile network at work in Britain . ‘They believe it is as well organised as the Mafia.’ He said nobody knew how much pressure there was within members of the paedophile fraternity not to give evidence against one (an)other. ‘My belief is that it won’t be long 8 before someone in prison talks. Their conscience will get the better of them’.” Again as was the case with the NSW Royal Commission it appeared for some time that the Commission was unable to discover any widespread paedophile conspiracy currently operating in this State. Instead the Commission in what I regard as its loss of professional and inquisitorial focus I mentioned earlier, spent an inordinate amount of time on what might or might not have happened twenty years ago at Castello’s nightclub! There is, and should be no sympathy whatsoever for paedophilia properly defined, within the gay and lesbian communities. That should be quite clear to anyone with even the slightest informed understanding or contact with that community. Paedophilia is no more condoned there than it might be amongst any responsible group. A sensational focus by both the Commission and the media on the alleged evils of individuals such as Robert Dunn or Phillip Bell and on under-age sex by other men with 16 or 17 year olds - at a time in this State when adult homosexual activity was illegal among all men of any age, has however had dire consequences for present day law-abiding men who happen to be gay. It is reported that four of these men have committed suicide. In three of the cases, the boys they had sex with were over 16. (The Weekend Australia, 21-22 December 1996). I make the point of alleged evils for these men have yet to be put before a court to answer their accusers, although whether there is any prospect of their ever getting a genuinely fair trial given the work of the Royal Commission and the media, remains a moot point. The informed and vigorous protest of a group drawn from the gay and lesbian community called Commission Watch seems thankfully to have returned the Commission to its senses and an appropriate focus on the sexual abuse of young and defenceless children. 9 Paedophilia and homosexuality are not the same thing. The Commissioner will bear a heavy burden when making such recommendations as impact on aspects of homosexual behaviour (for example in relation to the much needed reform of the age of consent) with the suspicions still high in the gay and lesbian communities that he has confused and failed, especially in the public mind, to distinguish the two. The damage lives on. The vilification of gay men as a consequence of the Commission’s early inappropriate attentions still is occurring to a disturbing degree. Last week I was told of a gay couple, both defence force professionals living in a leafy North Shore suburb who found they had been publicly vilified as paedophiles in a leaflet - one of 3000 leaflets stuffed into neighbourhood letterboxes by an unnamed moral vigilante. They are not paedophiles. There is no evidence to back the slanders against them. In the current witchcraze atmosphere how do they clear their names? That example is by no means isolated or the worst of which I have been informed. Indeed I understand the police in their re-found vigour in targeting under-age homosexual sex where one partner might be - or might have been up to twenty years ago - 16 or 17, are contributing to the hysteria. There are some serious questions to be asked about the use of Police resources in relation to investigating allegations of such behaviour going back over two decades and of the methods used in these investigations, especially in relation to the questioning of prostitutes, and the claims made that such people are being induced to give evidence about potential sexual offences in return for not being proceeded against on charges such as those related to drug use. The distribution of unproven allegations masquerading as fact in paedophile registers as has been the case recently in both New Zealand and Australia gives further cause for concern. Let there be no mistake. The exploitation of children by sexual abusers cannot be countenanced. Nor can the shocking failure of so many 10 government departments and agencies entrusted with a duty of care to protect the interests of children against neglect and malign predators. In a significant, although relatively small number of provable occasions, those predators have been revealed as operating from within the bureaucracy of care itself - profiting from a system that seems rather to prefer cover-up and official indifference to focused and effective action in order to remedy abuse. These horrifying examples of abuse however cannot justify the wholesale pillorying of innocent individuals. Allegations made in the lurid media spotlight arising from the days activities of the Commission whilst in session must be proved in court. I draw a distinction between the still to be properly and fairly tested allegations of paedophilia brought against individuals arising from proceedings in the Commission and the systemic failures that have to me too clearly already been proven through evidence in that same Commission. On the question of the law and discrimination may I note the quite bizarre and differential application of the laws of consent. As the Commission has demonstrated, an unequal age of consent for heterosexual and homosexual males results in persecution of gay males for activities which, when they occur between adult men and teenage girls, go without comment. This is manifestly unjust. It is a sad reflection on the State Parliament of the day that when it decriminalised homosexual behaviour, it intended originally to equalise the age of consent provisions, but was frightened out of so doing by the extreme moral crusaders who were still even resisting the decriminalisation provisions. In December last the Standing Committee of Attorneys-General released the Model Criminal Code Discussion Paper on Sexual Offences, a paper that recommends a uniform age of consent across Australia - 16 for both heterosexual and homosexual sex. In all States and Territories except the ACT and South Australia it is higher for homosexual sex than heterosexual sex. In Tasmania the situation remains confused 11 with a vote yet to be held in that State’s recalcitrant and unrepresentative Upper House on decriminalisation after a 26 - 8 vote two weeks ago in favour of reform in the Legislative Assembly. I see no good reason why there should be a discriminatory age of consent. I note that the Reverend Fred Nile has been quick to condemn that Standing Committee’s recommendations saying it was “an open invitation to paedophiles to come out of the woodwork”. (The Weekend Australian 21-22 December 1996) This on all the evidence is a gross distortion of the truth and out of step with moderate, even I believe conservative opinion. To quote a senior official of the Federal Attorney-General’s Department: “The fact is that this committee is made up of logical, hard-nosed lawyers, and we couldn’t come up with any reason to justify a different age for males and females, heterosexuals and homosexuals.” (The Weekend Australian, 21-22 December 1996) The fear of paedophilia has produced a number of schemes to register paedophiles. Such registers contain many dangers. Not least of which is that people accused, for no good and provable reason, of child molestation once named have few practical remedies with which to retrieve a ruined reputation. On the other hand such registers are often ineffective in keeping track of even convicted child sex offenders and thus cannot be relied upon with any degree of positive and certain effect. I note in this context the suggestion in The Sunday Telegraph (30/3/97) that communities be notified when sex offenders move into the area under “tough new laws being examined by the State Government”. Such laws are often referred to as Megan’s Laws. 12 They are based on the horrors experienced by 7 year old Megan Kanka who was raped and murdered by a suburban neighbour in New Jersey in July 1994. The predator who strangled Megan had been already twice convicted of child sexual assault. In prison he had refused treatment for his behaviour. On release he had set up home with two other men similarly convicted. They had chosen to live in a suburb where the streets were crowded with many young children. Megan’s Law has been passed in many States and is also now federal law in the United States. It requires the notification to local communities of the address and identity of those convicted of child sex offences for the rest of their lives, either upon conviction or when they move into a new area. Critics claim the law pillories convicted child sex offenders for the remainder of their lives even after they have completed their prison sentence. Its constitutionality is currently under review before the United States Supreme Court. In this respect I should note a recent report (Sydney Morning Herald 8/3/97) of how such laws can operate. In one case a 90 year old, convicted of lewd conduct in 1944, after police found him touching another man’s knee in a parked car, was subject to such community notification. In another case a 65 year old man with a lewd conduct conviction involving himself and a fellow sailor in 1956 was so cited. The matter of discrimination against people with criminal records, which is prohibited (with some specific exceptions) under anti-discrimination law in some Australian jurisdictions, is of concern to the NSW Anti-Discrimination Board. Again it is an issue which illustrates the difficulties in finding an appropriate balance between the rights of an individual to privacy and that of the community to know. In mid March this year State and Territory governments agreed to help each other vet applications for teaching positions in an effort to prevent paedophilia and other forms of child abuse in schools.(The Sydney Morning Herald, 15 March 1997). 13 NSW has apparently 314 teachers on its lists. Under the agreement according to press reports, “no centralised database of offending teachers will be established, but States will provide their confidential classification of suspect teachers to each other on request.........Education systems seeking to employ teachers will develop lists of potential employees who will then be vetted by every State against its own list of suspect teachers.......Each employer would maintain information about people who had a criminal record of a sexual offence against a child, a person subject to allegation who had been placed on a list “not to be employed” , or medically retired lists. A ‘mechanism would also be developed to allow non-government schools to check potential new teachers against records held in other States.’” (italics added) Similar provisions for vetting of potential offenders against children, older people and others in institutional care are also being developed in relation to employment in the NSW health service as part of the proposed Health Services Bill 1997. Will these measures be effective in constraining paedophiles within the education or health care systems? Is this simply another example of the witchcraze, whose primary satisfaction lies in slaking the emotional anxieties of those otherwise incapable of developing effective measures which will address, contain and eliminate the child sex abuse problem? The Anti-Discrimination Board has expressed its concern to the NSW Health Minister in relation to these matters, fearful of the over-reaction to some of the matters placed before the Police Royal Commission. The potential for witchhunt abuse arising out of both the education and health systems policies are manifest. Knowledge of a spent conviction may have little relevance in effecting protection of children against risk of abuse, especially if that conviction is not related directly to such offences. More certainly it removes the 14 incentive to rehabilitation by such offenders and makes more likely driving them into disguising their unpleasant past. As with Megan’s Law, understandable public outrage can create almost as many excesses as those it intends to reduce. Meanwhile one must acknowledge the concerns of those such as the inaugural holder of my present office, as NSW Commissioner of Equal Opportunities, Geoff Cahill who was quoted recently as saying that “powerful, secretive figures were working to bury the issue of paedophilia after the closure of the Wood Royal Commission”. (The Sun-Herald, 23 March 1997). Mr Cahill represented 11 victims of paedophilia who gave information to the Royal Commission. He claims abusers in high places remain unexposed. The report states, in shades of Frank Moorhouse’s The Everlasting Secret Family: “Paedophilia is endemic in this State.......The top end of town now feels the blowtorch. As the Commission winds down, there is a very real concern that this issue will dissolve into political oblivion. There are powerful, clandestine influences seeking to achieve this end. He talked also of prominent men from various professions including doctors and lawyers and sporting associations involved in procurement networks and who ‘shared children around’.” Why were not these networks not brought to account in the Wood Royal Commission I wonder? Do they exist or are they the manifestation simply of the imaginative concerns Professor Hugh Trevor-Roper outlined in my comments at the beginning of this address? I share Geoff Cahill’s concern that the systemic abuse, revealed in agencies with a duty of care to protect children against any form of abuse, will be allowed to 15 continue after the Wood Royal Commission’s final reports are gathering dust in our libraries. His latter concern remains, at least in my mind, a very open question. Some good already has come from the Wood Royal Commission in provoking institutional re-examination and reform - the establishment of a revamped NSW Police Service Child Protection Policy Unit not least amongst them. The process of reform the Royal Commission has spurred is encouraging. Simplistic solutions however, to a complex and ugly problem, do little to assure children of lives properly free from abuse. May I end on a note of historical paradox - and perhaps of grim humour for it was said that “The notorious (English) witchfinder, Matthew Hopkins travelled through the eastern counties in the 1640s to hunt out witches, and is said to have hanged 60 in one year in Essex alone. In 1647 (however) he was tested by his own methods; when cast into the river, he floated and so was hanged as a wizard.” (Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable) I wonder if there is a warning, or at the very least a lesson in there somewhere 14 April 1997
