Australia: UN Asks Australia to Better Protect Vulnerable Girls and Women
Latin American Herald Tribune – February 27, 2017
The United Nations urged Australia on Monday to improve the protection of vulnerable girls and women, including indigenous, asylum seekers, disabled and victims of domestic violence. Simonovic also spoke about the practice of separating aboriginal children from their families and recalled that the statistics show that aboriginals are seven times more likely than their non-indigenous peers to be linked to child protection services due to negligence and abuse.
