Newcastle Coroners Court is examining the death, including the role his parents, the Department of Family and Community Services and the NSW Department of Education and Training may have played.

Michael Buckley Tweed Heads DoCS Manager Under Investigation

This is the video I have warrants out in NSW for me over.

I walked into the Tweed Heads DoCS office and got the Manager Michael Buckley to admit he had intentionally falsely accused many of the parents whose children he had taken of being peodophiles, as well as foster carers, and their children.

Not one of the parents, foster carers or their children that I spoke to had these allegations proven against them, yet all the children involved were never returned.

In your email you’ve asked if I was abused as a child. That’s a question that has been asked many times and I will attempt to answer, you can decide for yourself.

I’ve been asked many times if I have been abused or what made me decide to write about child abuse and child sexual abuse. In most cases I have given a flippant response or not really responded at all. There are very few people who know anything about me personally.
