The Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, has announced that she will ask the Governor General to establish a Royal Commission into Child Sexual Abuse in Australia:

Quote:
Today I have announced that I will be recommending to the Governor-General the establishment of a Royal Commission into institutional responses to instances and allegations of child sexual abuse in Australia.

The allegations that have come to light recently about child sexual abuse have been heartbreaking.

These are insidious, evil acts to which no child should be subject.

The individuals concerned deserve the most thorough of investigations into the wrongs that have been committed against them.

They deserve to have their voices heard and their claims investigated.

I believe a Royal Commission is the best way to do this.

I'm already thinking about what my submission to the Royal Commission will be.

Thanks for posting, Mark.

I saw this story in the paper this AM. I hope it brings validation and peace to our Aussie survivor brothers.
