Number 1 destination for Australian paedophiles revealed.
Indonesia has now become the most popular destination for Australian child sex tourists. A new report accessed by The Sydney Morning Herald shows that 25 Australian paedophiles per month travel to Indonesia for sex tourism, exploiting children in the region for their own desires. This figure is just under 20 per cent of all sex offenders on Australia’s state-based register.
The growth of the internet has also seen an increase in pay-per-view paedophillia, as paedeophiles transfer money to “friends” in Indonesia who set them up with children performing lewd sex acts in front of a webcam.
The Australian Federal Police regional commander Chris Sheehan has now issued a stern warning to paedophiles: “reconsider travelling to Indonesia, the Philippines and other parts of South East Asia, because you increasingly face the likelihood that you’ll be investigated and then prosecuted.”
One in seven Australians living in poverty says national report.
Poverty is increasing in Australia with one in seven Australians living below the poverty line according to Poverty in Australia, a new report from the Australian Council of Social Services.
The report, released today, also indicates that the number of children living in poverty has increased since 2010 with figures showing that one in six Australian children are living below the poverty line.
In Melbourne 13.7 per cent of residents were in poverty compared to 15 per cent in Sydney, 13.9 per cent in Brisbane, 13.8 per cent in Hobart, 12.4 per cent in Perth and 11.5 per cent in Adelaide.
ACOSS chief executive, Cassandra Goldie, told The Age, “these findings paint a disturbing picture that we as a community need to confront… It will take leadership from our elected representatives and governments who must ensure that addressing poverty is central to public policy making.”
