False accusations in custody cases
Scotland’s DIVORCED fathers falsely accused of abusing their children during custody hearings are demanding a change in the law.
Pressure group False Allegations Action’s spokesman, Eamonn Kelly said: “There are doting dads who have been falsely accused of the worst kind of abuse against their own children. It’s calculated to destroy a father’s relationship with their child forever and to wreck his personal life too”¦”¦ We’ve noticed that when the claims are proved to be groundless, there is no investigation. The police do nothing, the courts do nothing.”
This is a good article IMO because they’ve been given a lead”¦”¦. A Scottish Government spokesman said: “The introduction of a specific criminal offense in relation to false allegations of sexual abuse in child contact cases would require primary legislation and full consultation and analysis beforehand.”
For knowledge, I decided to contact the Law Society, Ministry of Justice and CYFS to see if there is something happening in NZ. Always enjoyable chatting with people but the end result is this”¦.
Proposed legislation that would have an impact upon the Family Court is listed below”¦”¦”¦..
The UK has already tackled the problem in the criminal courts with women now-a-days being sent to prison for false rape allegations and if you’re interested in seeing just how bad the problem is, why not visit the False Rape Society – very interesting yet sad, sad, sad reading.
So what about NZ?
If anything, we can talk about it?
