Chloe Ann-King started this petition to Prime Minister Rt Hon John Key (National)

Tania Billingsley, who is at the centre of the Malaysian diplomat case, has spoken out and demanded that Murray McCully, National's Foreign Minster resign. On May the 9th 2014 Muhammad Rizalman bin Ismail, the Malaysian diplomat in question, was arrested and charged with burglary and assault with intent to rape after allegedly following Ms Billingsley home.  

Both Murray McCully and John Key failed to take seriously the issue of an alleged sexual attack on Tania which allowed her alleged attacker to flee back to Malaysia. In Billingsley's own words, "Murray McCully – not only has watching and reading his response to my attack been incredibly hurtful and frustrating, I have also felt embarrassed for him. Watching a grown man try to talk his way out of responsibility at what is effectively failure at his own job is a painful thing to see. I can't believe his incapability to admit a mistake and try to fix it rather than pointing fingers at everyone else."

Murray MUST go. It is time we collectively come together as New Zealanders and demand better from the National Government when it comes to how we treat and support survivors of rape and violence.  Murray MUST go.

Stand with Tania. Sign the petition.
