 Australian Prime Minister apologized for child sexual abuse: we failed them.


Australian Prime Minister Morrison apologizes to victims of child sexual abuse in Parliament in Canberra, Australia, Oct. 22, 2018, local time.

In a televised speech, Morrison said church priests, school teachers and scout leaders committed evil, dark crimes. We have to apologize. I am sorry for the children we have failed. Im sorry, parents who trusted us but were betrayed and tried to expose the scandal. Morrison said. In his speech, he admitted that sexual assault often occurred in schools, churches, youth groups, orphanages, sports clubs, home care institutions and charities. Morrison said the scandal was a crime committed by Australians against their compatriots, and the enemy was not from outside. He said, today, as a country, we face our failures. We can not hear the problem, do not believe the victim, nor provide justice. Australias opposition Labour leader Shorton also apologized to the victims, saying Australia must face the truth of the past, We heard your voices, sorry for being so late to apologize.

Reuters said personal apologies by the prime minister were rare in Australian history, usually in response to national incidents with extremely bad effects and the governments disgraceful role. Australia last issued a national apology in 2008, when Prime Minister Kevin Rudd apologized to the countrys indigenous communities for the governments controversial policies.

The Sydney Morning Herald said on the 22nd that many of the victims of child sexual assault at the scene of the parliament building had turned pale. Audiences said they were relieved by the governments statement that they had never been happier in their lives. But according to the Canberra Times, there have also been clear expressions of discontent with the country, saying that society has failed us. The BBC says thousands of victims died before the government apologized, many of them killed themselves and were unable to witness the late justice until the last moment.

In the past, New South Wales, Australia a senior police officer has revealed serious scandal the local Catholic Church clergy abuse the shield. Under pressure, the Australian government in 2012 set up a Royal Commission specifically on childrens sexual assault was an investigation of the problem. Although the nationwide survey was controversial and resisted, the social response was positive. More than 15 thousand victims were contacted by the Commission, and 8000 were given detailed testimony. At the end of last year, the Commission released the survey report which has been completed for 5 years. The worlds largest childrens status of sexual assault investigation report that Australias churches, schools and various sports clubs of child sexual abuse incidents disaster, and a few of the pastors and teachers should pose as a person of high morals of children is the most notorious violation of state. The investigation committee even said in the report, this is not a problem of rotten apples . There is an overall shortage of major public institutions.

According to media reports, more than 4,000 institutions were charged, more than 2,500 cases were formally transferred to the relevant departments for investigation and treatment, and 230 suspects or institutions were prosecuted. In addition, the Commission has made more than 400 improvements to government departments and other social institutions. According to the governments compensation plan, each victim will receive a compensation of 150,000 Australian dollars (about 740,000 yuan), a total of about 60,000 people are eligible to claim the compensation. Local governments and some principal responsible organizations including the Catholic Church will pay compensation. But according to the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC), it was pointed out that the compensation was insufficient to provide relief to the victims. If the compensation scheme is unsatisfactory, it is meaningless to apologize. According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the surveys sponsor, former Australian Prime Minister Gillard 22, told the media that the current governments apology is worthy of recognition. But she also said that the national apology should not be limited to a single word sorry. In her view, the holistic drawbacks of public institutions have tainted the countrys history, and Australia can no longer heal the wounds of the past completely, but it can look to the future. She urged the Morrison administration to make the best possible compliance with the compensation proposals made by the Commission of inquiry to make up for its mistakes.
