Australia: No wonder they’re troubled!
A known pedophile was employed by a Catholic school for ‘troubled boys’.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse begins its hearings on Monday, with the activities of former Newcastle scoutmaster Steven Larkins among those to feature.
Larkins, who is serving a 15-month sentence for fraud and possession of child pornography, was able to become chief executive of the Hunter Aboriginal Children’s Services, in charge of vulnerable children, despite being involved in paedophile activity with scouts in the 1990s….
Whistleblower and former scout leader Armand Hoitink, who complained to the scouts about Larkins’ suspected paedophile activities in the 1990s, said he had discovered Larkins was working at Kendall Grange, a school for troubled boys run by the St John of God brothers…
It was revealed last year that more than a dozen former students have alleged they were sexually abused by St John of God brothers at Kendall Grange School. Two of the brothers who worked at the school were convicted of serious abuse relating to work at homes run by the order in New Zealand in the 1960s.
God looks after his own…
