A medical professional investigated for inappropriate contact with young female patients – including at least one teenager – both in New Zealand and Australia has been granted unsupervised access to his two daughters by the Family Court – despite the pair’s protests.
The man, identified as Mr A for the purpose of this story, lives in Australia and has two daughters – aged 10 and 12 – living with their mother and stepfather in New Zealand. The pair, distraught at being forced to undertake unsupervised visits with their father, are holding an online protest against the Family Court.
Videos from the girls highlight what they believe is “aged-based” discrimination by the court.
“If I was 16, no one would be allowed to force me to spend time with them,” the elder of the two girls says.
