Updated January 15, Organised gangs of men are sexually exploiting children in out-of-home care and enticing them into trading sex for money, drugs and alcohol. Some of the children have been transported between towns and even interstate, while the ABC has also been told that some abuse has been filmed by paedophiles. It is understood that police have identified between 30 and 40 children who are living in Department of Human Services residential care that may have been exploited in this fashion in the past 18 months, but the number could be higher.
The suburbs around Dandenong are believed to be an area of particular concern to police and the department. Police have found it difficult to charge the perpetrators, as the victims, many of whom come from traumatic backgrounds, are reluctant to give statements implicating their abusers whether through fear, a mistrust of authority or a belief that they are not actually being abused. The Department of Human Services and Victoria Police have spent two years working on a new approach to tackling the issue, which revolves around better sharing of information and educating workers on how to recognise the signs of sexual exploitation.
This can mean charging the abusers with drug or property offences to bring them into the criminal justice system and keep them away from their victims. They are not competent to make that decision. In one case that did go to court, a number of men in Shepparton were charged with child sex and prostitution offences after having sex with girls in return for cigarettes, cash and shopping trips.
At the plea hearing of the ringleader, Emran Dad, in , the court heard that he gave a year-old girl a pack of cigarettes in exchange for sex. Another girl, 16, said Dad would contact her via Facebook, then drive her to the house of a friend of his. The girl said other girls were at the house and that men would then turn up and choose a girl to have sex with. In a statement, Victoria Police said there had been a number of successful prosecutions for exploitation offences of this nature and that there were ongoing investigations.
She says 2, police, child protection and care workers have been trained disrupt the exploitation of children. Bernie Geary, the commissioner for children and young people in Victoria, says while he is not aware of these specific cases, he knows the system is "open to abuse". Do you know more?
