Once fogged off by the Police, about a third of them would go on to be fogged off by ACC. In one recent example, ACC refused counselling for a child abuse victim on the basis that her family was dysfunctional and that alone was the cause of her stress not the actually abuse itself and, for those who didn't know, that is classed as a pre-existing condition and not covered by ACC.
That is of course assuming the child went through the grilling process of being assessed by complete strangers in order for them to have come up with idiotic conclusion.
"Most of my enquiry files have named offenders," said one Police Officer. "Some of whom are probably still abusing victims, but I am resigned to the fact that that's just the way it is".Child abuse in New Zealand remains one of the most easiest and least prosecuted crime. The most vulnerable in society continue to experience victimisation in the very "systems" set up to help them. SHAME ON NZ!
