Me, being a bit of a dimwit when the mood takes me (read often) the fact that Mr Satyanand is actually now the Governor General and not the Ombudsman, failed to take root in my poor adled brain.
However, the good news is this. I am in receipt of a reply to my email to Mr Satyanand, but of course from Beverley Wakeham, the new Ombudsman.
Sadly, her reply came as an attched TIF file which I can’t seem to copy and paste to here.
Save to say, although short on words, I sense a strong response. She has promised to take my/our concerns up with the head honcho of CYFS at the earliest opportunity.
As we know, and as I have suggested in a reply email, the head honcho of CYFS will do a Telfon job on Ms Wakeham because all she really has is my unproven words and those of Julie.
And so I have asked for four respite before she approaches the HH at CYFS, during which time I will collect as many stories as possible, have them attached to affidavits, and forward those to her offices.
So this is it. This is show-time. The clock is ticking. If we want to utilisie this rather surprise benefit, then I need your stories, and I need them pronto. At some stage I will also need you to swear an affidavit. The proformas for them will be sent to you, and then all you need to do is visit any lawyer or JP, or Court Registrar to sign them.
For those of you unsure of the nature of an affidavit….They have the same judicial power as swearing an oath to speak truthfully in a court of law. Ergo, they carry a lot of judicial weight.
Thus each account must be attached to an affidavit.
C’mon people. This is the time to open with a few salvoes. But I need your help.
