- Hon Steven Marshall, Hon Vickie Chapman and Hon Rachel Sanderson
The South Australian Labor Party suppressed the names of over 700 child sex abusers listed in the Mullighan Inquiry released in 2008 for 80 years.
THE horrific extent of sex abuse against children in state care over four decades has been revealed in the 600-page report of the Mullighan inquiry to State Parliament.
Retired Supreme Court judge Ted Mullighan, QC, yesterday issued a stark warning that children in state care would remain vulnerable to sex abuse unless urgent action was taken to overhaul a system in crisis.
His $13.5 million inquiry considered hundreds of allegations of widespread child abuse within government and non-government institutions, spanning 40 years.
The report contained 54 recommendations, which Premier Mike Rann yesterday said would be comprehensively examined before a detailed response in early June. This never happened.
We call upon Hon Steven Marshall, Hon Vickie Chapman, and Hon Rachel Sanderson to un-suppress the names and properly investigate child sex abuse in South Australia, for the protection of children's rights, which until now, have been violated, by 16 years of Labor Government in South Australia.
