There is need to crack down on the billion-dollar child pornography industry, says Independent Senator Anthony Vieira. He said The Sexual Offences (Amendment) Bill 2019 does not treat with this issue and expressed concern that the registry would create “modern-day lepers” and impede the rehabilitation of offenders.
“I am concerned that the national sex registry may give rise to a false sense of security without providing real solutions. In my respectful view and for the reasons that I will give, the national sex offenders registry and related policies are fundamentally flawed in that they do nothing to support prevention… they do little or nothing for people who have survived sexual abuse, they will put offenders at risk of technical violations, failing to report, failing to inform of a change of address,” he said.
