The document is posted. As you can see I decided to post it both fully redacted, and as text version with pseudonyms replacing many of the redacted names and hence, hopefully, making it easier for everyone to follow the gist the gist of what happened:
10 November 2013: Trouble at the Embassy (Statement signed by victim’s mother recalling events which transpired after son was sodomised by Brother Lawrence) (Accused/Accused G-L/Lawrence: Brother Lawrence Lambert fic)
10 November 2013: Trouble at the Embassy (text version of above with pseudonyms rather than redactions for many of the names) (Accused/Accused G-L/Lawrence: Brother Lawrence Lambert fic)
Yes, I will be commenting. But, not now. Time for a break. However, I will let you know that prior to posting the document I contacted the Australian Embassy in Tokyo to ask if there was any comment or clarification regarding the mother’s statement as to how the situation regarding the sexual abuse of her son by Brother Lawrence was handled by officials with the Embassy. I received the following reply from am Embassy official:
In response to your enquiry, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has deep sympathy for victims of abuse. It takes these allegations seriously and has provided the attached statement to the Australian Federal Police. As the embassy staff allegedly involved are no longer employees of the department, the department is not in a position to investigate. The department has passed to the Australian Federal Police any material relevant to the matter.
I am still thinking that through.
Enough for now,
