In 2013, the Home Office stated that all relevant information had been passed to the police, and that Dickens' dossier had not been retained. It was later disclosed that 114 documents concerning child abuse allegations were missing. In July 2014, the Labour Party called for a new inquiry into the way that the allegations had been handled, and the Prime Minister, David Cameron, ordered the permanent secretary of the Home Office, Mark Sedwill, to investigate the circumstances of the lost dossier.
Yet, as Patrick Lion reported in The Daily Telegraph yesterday this is the excuse a Victorian magistrate has accepted as a “mitigating factor” in the case of an Afghan man charged with the attempted kidnap of a four-year-old girl. Ali Jaffari, 35, had already been convicted last year of sexually molesting two boys, aged 12 and 13, at a Geelong beach. Despite the fact he showed no remorse and the prosecution wanted him jailed, Magistrate Ann McGarvie let him off with a two-year community corrections order, saying he had a low risk of reoffending.
Jaffari was back in Geelong Magistrate’s Court after he allegedly snatched a four-year-old girl at a cricket oval in Geelong last year while her father and brother were distracted. But in February Magistrate Ron Saines threw out the child stealing charge and cited “cultural differences”. In what culture is there any different view to ours, that preying on children is unacceptable? Child sexual abuse in Afghanistan might be “endemic”, as a US State department report puts it. But that doesn’t mean it is culturally acceptable, especially not to parents and children.

A common problem with adoption these days is the willingness of our governments to adopt children to make couples, whom in turn are in fact adopting these children to paedophile them out.
There has already been numerous cases where males have adopted children to rape. Unfortunately in our politically correct society,it is deemed discriminative to not allow gay men to adopt children - regardless of the statistics that already one in four girls and one and five boys these days are sexually assaulted before the age of 16.
With constant barriers such as Debra Lee Furness, protective parents are finding it near impossible to not only fight against forced adoption but to keep the children safe from predators.
