Petition Background (Preamble):
Petition published by Derryn Hinch
In Australia, the rights of convicted sex offenders seem to take precedence over victims’ rights. Especially with paedophiles. Serial sex offenders have their names, photos and addresses, suppressed by the courts on release.
Unlike Megan’s Law in the United States, communities have no knowledge as to who they are or where they are. A public register is a right and a national duty that is long overdue.
