Royal Commission into institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
This petition had 272 supporters
The PM of New Zealand has refused to commit to having a full and independent inquiry into institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.
And yet today the sexual abuse of children in all institutions within New Zealand are being sexually abused with nothing being done to stop it.
By having a full and independent inquiry into institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse from the past will and can change the future of how we deal with children both in state care as well as by religious groups and our schools as well as other institutions.
MP Bill English along with Hon Paula Bennett and Hon Anne Tolley have said that there is nothing in having a RC for them. This is not about what they will be getting out of a RC this is about what the victims and survivors will get out of it.
The report released by the Nationals regarding the changes within the CYF says nothing about what they are going to put in place to stop the sexual abuse of children.
We are asking for mandatory reporting of any and sexual abuse of children by all institutions that find that a staff member or worker has been abusing children.
Also educcation in all schools teaching children about their body and who and who can not touch them.
We are also asking for the statue of limitations to be lifted so people from the past can make an application to the courts for compensation.
We are wanting a seperate Sexual assault unit within the police that victims can go to without having to take it further unless they are ready to. We want a independent body to cover complaints against any agency including CYF this must not be a government run body.
What we need changed is the amount of compensation that is appropriate starting from $150,000 up. With ongoing treatment for every victim.
