Couple speak out about Victim Support
Stephen and Diane Jelicich were a couple whose split became as acrimonious as it can get.
It culminated in January with Stephen running off with their baby daughter Caitlin and hiding from police for 10 days.
Diane went back to Wales not knowing where her daughter was or when she would see her again. But the couple believe it should never have been that bad.
They told Close Up they blame Victim Support for creating the situation which made Stephen take Caitlin.
It all started on December 22 when Stephen called police claiming Diane had assaulted him and damaged his eardrum.
A few hours later police and Victim Support arrived and took Diane and Caitlin to Women’s Refuge while Stephen was out.
At the same time, a warrant was issued for his arrest. However, the couple did not signal they wanted to be separated.
While it was Stephen that was the alleged victim that day, it was Diane and Caitlin that were rescued by Victim Support.
