That's a bold statement to make. I don't suppose you have some valid sources with verified facts and figures do you?
Yes My own son was beaten unconscious by his mother at the age of 17 months. My son received a black eye whilst still in nappies. He was left
unconscious and refused an ambulance. When my own mother arrived on the scene, she found my son unconscious.She argued to take my son to hospital but
my former partner refused insisting they would go instead to her GP. That GP concealed the injuries which they were legally obliged to report to Child
My son was subsequently repeatedly beaten up by his mother for the following three years. In fact just two weeks after the first assault I personally
witnessed her make a violent assault against my son and witnessed several other assaults during the following months.
My son's mother had prior to preganacy been using cannabis and was medicated with high doses of steroids (80 mg daily) She exhibited bizarre
phsychotic behaviour. Had vivid aural and visual hallucinations before and after pregancy. A medical expert gave me a report to take to the courts
warning that my boy's mother suffered from dangerous medication induced psychosis and should not have custody of the child. The New Zealand Family
Court judge Geoffrey Ellis rejected that medical report on grounds that the child's mother was entitled to medical privacy.
New Zealand social worker Barbara Lee refused to investigate. She later denied this but I tape recorded my telephone call to her in which she refused.
I then went to the New Zealand Police who also refused to take a complaint. they told me they viewed it as a civil matter and advised me to go to the
Eventually it took me 9 months to force an investigation by Police. They went to interview the mother with the child's new social worker Marti
Hartley. Neither the social worker nor the Police detective were willing to interview me, even though I had personally witnessed subsequent assaults.
Indeed the Police and social worker confined their enquiry to the initial assault even though my complaint to them was about a series of assaults.
They also refused to interview my mother who found my son unconscious after the first assault.
Many years later I discovered correspondence from my son's file in which the social workers were attempting to persuade Police to call off their
investigations. When the investigating police officer advised the social worker that it was out of his hands and that he was under orders to
investigate he then subsequently agreed to a request by social workers not to interview the father. I have this in writing.
Two years passed and neither police nor social workers would communicate with me the outcome of their investigation until the child's mother filed a
letter from the Police officer claiming there was no evidence. At behest of my objections to this letter the family Court then ordered Child welfare
to report back to the Court whether thay agreed with the Police officer's letter.
Incidentally it is illegal in New Zealand for any Police officer to give a personal testimonial in a civil court matter. this Police officer not only
gave such a testimonial but did so on Police letterhead paper in his official capacity as the investigating officer.
Eventually the Report filed by Child Welfare dismissed my claims suggesting to the Court that I was merely making vexatious false allegations. On the
strength of this I have been denied contact with my son.
Many years later I obtained my son's file. It disclosed that Police and social workers had conspired to mislead the Family Court. The documents
revealed that my son's mother in fact admitted to the assault which gave him a black eye and left him unconscious It also revealed that she admitted
to subsequent serious reports and child Welfare had also concealed these from the new Zealand Family Court.
I filed those documents in evidence at the family Court and had the same Judge Ellis order the Court registrar order the documents returned to me in
the same envelope. This idiot of a judge refused to allow any evidence to be filed. At the next Court hearing I protested at the striking out of this
evidence. The judge said it was not my evidence. That it was evidence which belonged to Child Welfare.
I then protested that it was evidence of perjury to his court.
The same judge told me he was not interested in my claims and if i wished to make such claims I should go to the Police
When I went to the Police again it took several months and or complaints as high as the office of the Prime Minister and Commissioner of Police. The
new Zealand Commisioner for Children charged with investigating child abuse and misconduct by Child Welfare simply refused to investigate at all.
Polic eventually staged a sham enquiry to placate and silence me.
A senior police officer Simon Perry interviewed me. He candidly admitted to me that the original investigating Police officer refused to co-operate
with further enquiries on grounds that it may incriminate him. Perry advised me that so much time had elapsed that they were no longer interested in
the matter. Therefore Police would not investigate.
The current New Zealand prime minister John Key declned to intervene. New Zealand Police and child welfare authorities are thoroughly corrupt and the
New Zealand Family courts are thoroughly inept at protecting children from violence and child abuse.
My complaints were silenced and muzzled to protect the careers of social workers who initially refused to investigate. To protect them from the
consequences of their inaction successive Police officers and social workers have been prepared to lie on oath to the Courts and the Courts have
blithely averted their gaze from such corruption.
Yes I have personal experience...
