ACC cover to extend to child victims of sexual grooming:

ACC Minister Judith Collins has announced an addition to the Objectionable and Indecency Legislation Bill that would extend ACC sensitive claims to cover chilldren or young people who are victims of sexual grooming or indecent communications.



Nothing Trivial about Rape Plot:

This one is for those of you who (like me) were fans of TVNZ programme 'Nothing Trivial'. The finale, which screened on Sunday, included a plot line uncomfortably close to the Roast Busters issue raised last year.

Although the events that have occurred over the past 2 months are unrelated, the cumulative effects of a spate of violent deaths in such a short space of time on the wider community have been significant.
