Independant SA Member Ann Bressington fires warning shot at child a…

Independent MLC Ann Bressington has asked questions in the South Australian parliament, of the South Australian Police Minister, in the apparent failure to properly investigate a serious case of child abuse on behalf of a constituent. Ann advised the minister that four weeks ago a distressed father contacted her office regarding the mother of his four year old daughter allegedly attempting to perform female circumcision on the little girl with a kitchen knife in the shower of her home. The girl's older brother, aged six, witnessed the incident and a medical report from the Lyell McEwin Hospital assessed the child to be at risk. Last week (approximately four weeks after the incident) police interviewed the child and told the father, `This is a cultural issue. We don't expect this to go any further.' When the father pointed out that the six year old brother saw it and had stated this, he was told, `Well, children say things sometimes, you know.' He was also told that the mother was asked if she did it and she had said `No', and that it would not be pursued any further.

Kids want to sack Mum in divorce case

Justice Peter Murphy has slammed two sisters for "holding a gun" to the head of the court - and the heads of their parents - in a bizarre custody case. He spoke after the teenagers took their case to the Family Court, in a bid to leave their mother to live with their wealthy father on the Gold Coast. The girls, aged 14 and 15, have been brought up almost solely by their mum since their parents split up 10 years ago. It is an unusual case that is being closely watched by family law experts as the court has to weigh up the wishes of the children with what is in their best interests. While the case has yet to be heard in full, the judge said that in the interim the sisters had to go home to their mother while still being able to see their father.
