ABANDONED by her family, alone, frightened and brutalised by her husband, Sargun Ragi put her faith in the justice system - and died for it.
The Herald Sun
Women in this country are afraid and extremely vulnerable  when their partner is a perpetrator, tougher penalties need to occur to stop the death of women who are let down by a system that does not have tough penalties for the breaching of these orders.

      I had an IVO against a person who decided to breach it 3 days later they used a sledgehammer and left me in a critical condition and 4 weeks in a coma. I want to see mandatory sentencing applied as they face a magistrate judge and agreed to not breach it, but do anyway as they know they won't get maximum. So bring in mandatory sentencing of at least 5 years as a start and let's see if that will deter them.

      Its sad that intervention orders are treated as misdemeanours by police instead of a crime worthy of police resources and investigation to obtain evidence. Unless there is evidence of the breach upfront i.e. perp texts threats from his mobile, then prosecution rarely happens and when it does its lenient. Change is needed.

      I have supported women who have been battered by their pertner. It is so hard on the children as well as the women

      Over the years there have been so many examples of men who have ignored their intervention orders, and killed their wives or partners. Intervention Orders need to be upheld strictly, to protect people who need them. It takes courage to file for an intervention order, and they should be strictly and quickly enforced.

      The "justice" system in custody disputes still favours the father. Many times I have seen cases go to court and the word of the father is taken as being more valid and reliable than the word of the mother. The cycles repeat and repeat. It reminds me of the "old boy" network syndrome at it's worst.
