Child Abuse is a serious Social Issue so I have moved to a new forum but anyone who has not seen my first thread will still get a decent picture of
what I have achieved so far.
Thank you to the thousands of people who have viewed the video clips and read through the various threads that have shared information relative to my
story. This thread is to provide an update and share my aims - I hope that you will share my aims.
No one makes these journeys completely on their own and I am certainly not alone now that I am on the worldwideweb. I appreciate the feedback and
support more than words could ever express.
1. Federal Court
I have made it to the Federal Court of Australia and managed to pique the interest of the Judge. I had only supplied the minimum requirement with
regards to information necessary to have my application be awarded a hearing. I had no belief in the legal system and did not know what to expect.
Luckily the paperwork I supplied was enough to gain a Directions Hearing. The Directions Hearing was concise and the Judge was not satisfied that
there was no case to answer and I have progressed to an Interlocutory Hearing on 20th March 2014. The Judge has reserved two days. The venue is the
same as before - Human Rights Court - 80 William Street, Sydney. NSW. Australia.
I had hoped that I would be connected to the pro bono (for free) barrister system that operates from the Federal Court but I was not to be offered
that option. I exhausted all my avenues trying to engage the services of a licenced legal practitioner and so I remain unrepresented - that is where
the worldwideweb audience can assist me. My aim is to go viral so that when I am in court - I am merely a person with a conscience who is
representative of all the people around the globe who want Children to be better protected from all abuse, in particular the abuse of paedophiles and
For the moment it is legal paperwork processes. I am about to send off my Statement of Claim, this is the document that sets the scene and then I will
collate all my evidence - of which I have plenty. An identity free copy of my first draft book/recount has been uploaded to Disclose.tv - in the
section Media select Documents and the title is the same as this thread minus the Update & Aims.
By reading the document you will get a very good idea of what I have endured as a Mandatory Reporter. I have heard the same and similar from others.
My aim is to utilise the court hearing to air my account and explore my evidence. The outcome I want is to change/update/amend the current Mandatory
Reporting legislation. At present, from my perspective the current Mandatory Reporting legislation does not protect the person reporting and as such
natural justice and logic dictate it is not protecting any Child. When I made the reports there were Children At Risk of Harm and I have continued
because from my perspective there are Children who are still At Risk of Harm. I cannot walk away from Children - if this directly involved your child
you would not want me to walk away.
2. Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse
I have received the second of two responses from the Royal Commission administrative staff. The second letter was dated 15th July 2013. I cannot
overstep legal boundaries of confidentiality but know that the information spans at least 35 years. I am very concerned at the lack of publicity
concerning Child Abuse and my aim is utilise this opportunity to ensure the Commissioners enable their positions of authority to ensure sensitive
information is thoroughly investigated by the appropriate authorities.My aim is to ensure they commit to actions that will protect Children and not
just apply their penmanship to reports- nothing more than pieces of paper. We all know that pieces of paper are no good unless immediate and
responsible action accompanies the paperwork.
I hope you will support me here as it is impossible for me to share sensitive information without damaging all the work I have completed - just to get
this far. Again I would urge you to read the identity free first draft of my book/recount so that you can gain a better understanding of what I have
endured. I have put the Children first at every step of this journey/ordeal and until they have received justice I will continue - hopefully now with
the support of a global community.
The Royal Commission correspondence stated it may be several months before they personally address my sensitive information, there was no date given.
Please know that a first draft copy of my book/recount has been sent to them and separately the sensitive Mandatory Report information.
This may seem unrelated - but just trust me - this section of my unique and untenable situation is related. Essentially I have not accepted a small
compensation - which was so small that when taxed by the Government and then Social Security payments extracted - could have very well left me with
nothing. I opted to have a hearing and at least I have union appointed representation in this situation.
There has already been one telephone conciliation - which will make for an interesting chapter that is yet to be written. Let's just say that the
Arbitrator has convened a second telephone conciliation - to ensure the "omitted" paperwork will be "available" by the time we are engaging in a
second telephone conciliation. Join the dots on that one people! I have elected to have a hearing, where my aim is to show all the evidence I have
kept along this journey/ordeal that is directly relevant to this situation. The hearing has been convened for 19th December 2013.
So there you have it people - update and aims. I will make another short video when I am stronger. My health has suffered and at times I am extremely
fatigued. I will make another video as an update when I can present myself as much healthier. Thank you again for the support - for the personal
emails and contacts and suggestions - it is all extremely important to me and to the actual aims.
I will follow up on every name, legal firm, Child Abuse Advocate and suggestion that has been directed to me. Please make this story viral so that
when I enter Federal Court - The Royal Commission and the WorkCover Hearing we will all be there expecting change - for the Children - Your Children.
Help this story become viral - Child Abuse should be front and centre in the media. Human beings are the only living sentient lifeform on this earth
that have the scourge called Child Sexual Abuse - it is 2013 - it is time we protected the Children. We can do this - together. You either stand with
me or you stand against me. Please stand with me.
Much Peace - Amanda
