Petition to Australian Press Council, Australian Communications and Media Authority, Mr Richard Bean, Hon John Doyle AC

suspend publication and an inquiry of news Corp for leading Duncan on suicide watch.

Duncan Storrar is an Australian pensioner who has a disability and mental illness. When Duncan asked a question on Q&A on Monday about tax cuts his question made him a hero among middle and low income earners but an enemy among big business and the media. News Corp started numerous scare campaigns against Duncan, vilifying him and making accusations without any evidence to back them up. Duncan was put on suicide watch because of it. This sort of news reporting is unacceptable and I will not tolerate it. I am referring this to the Australian Communication and Media Authority and the Australian Press Council. All of News Corp must be suspended to teach them a lesson. Help support me in getting the Press Council and the ACMA to force News Corp to stop publishing news with a very long suspension and call for a royal commision by signing my petition.  news corp phone number (02) 9288 3000 the Australian phone number (02) 9288 3000 herald sun phone number (03) 9292 2000 anthony galloway responsible for the post in the herald sun rita panhai writer for the herald sun Damian Johnson editor for the herald sun.

Petition to Kelly O'Dwyer

Kelly O'Dwyer: don’t allow paedophiles to avoid paying victims compensation

The ex-Bega Cheese CEO, Maurice Van Ryn, sexually assaulted my children over a number of years. This predator was sentenced to 18 years jail — but now he may successfully avoid paying compensation to his 9 victims. My children need constant psychological care to heal the wounds caused by this man. And all his victims need to be able to access ongoing, specialist support. But the former multi-millionaire CEO is using an absurd law that means he can avoid paying victims compensation from money sitting in his self-managed superannuation account. Under current Australian Superannuation Legislation, a person cannot be forced to draw down upon their superannuation. Even if a court orders Van Ryn to compensate his victims, he can legally refuse to use his superannuation to do so. It means he’s able to protect his fortune while leaving his victims to suffer further without compensation. Surely those who wrote the Superannuation Act and the politicians that voted on it never expected it be used as a mechanism for paedophiles to hide their money and avoid compensating their victims? These laws can be changed to deal with such injustices; in recent years laws were changed to give access to superannuation in divorce settlements. We need your help. My children and other victims of this predator need on-going care and compensation — I’m asking Kelly O’Dwyer to change the law so the rights of child sexual offenders aren’t put ahead of their victims. Please sign and share our petition today to help get justice for our families. Thank you. Ken (pseudonym required due to court non-publication orders)Father of Van Ryn Victims

Petition to Immigration Minister Peter Dutton (Australian Immigration Minister), Hon Alex Hawke, Australian Immigration and Border Protection

Minister Peter Dutton, Australia is not a Safe Haven for Crimes against children

My suffering has been ignored by Australian Immigration for 12 months while they protect and give a Safe Haven to a Wanted person who is hiding from her crimes in Australia on a Visa and who has an INTERPOL Red Notice issued against her for 2 counts of trying to kill me (Attempted Murder). I am an Australian child and seeking Justice for two attempts on my life and the accused is a Filipino who is taking refuge in Australia on a Visa to hide from her crimes. Two (2) Warrants have been issued in the Philippines for two (2) counts of Attempted Murder. The accused fled to Australia to avoid prosecution after Sexually Abusing another child in the Philippines, and a Warrant for Child Sexual Abuse of a different child is also expected within weeks. Since the second attempt on my life I have suffered traumatic nightmares every night and I need Justice. Under Section 501 (Character Test) of the Australian Migration Act the accused should have had her Visa cancelled. Minister Dutton you recently said, Quote: "I want to concentrate very closely on child sex offenders and people that have committed offenses against children... If I do nothing else in my time in parliament, I'd be very proud of just that," Minister Dutton, Australia should not be a refuge for Wanted people to hide from crimes against children. We are waiting for you to act on child sex offenders and people that have committed offenses against children. You can start with my Case which involves Child Sexual Abuse and Attempted Murder of a child, protect the Australian community and give us Justice. By ignoring this you are now putting all children in Australia at risk of being Abused by this woman, and letting us suffer. Name of Accused withheld so she does not get my petition deleted again!
