When are the authorities and media going to take this seriously?

A little over a year ago, the police knocked on my front door to tell me that my seven year old daughter had made allegations that I had sexually abused her.  Last week I was acquitted of all charges by a jury.  The deliberations took about eight hours.

This incident has left emotional scars on me, my parents and my girlfriend.  Most importantly it will have left emotional scars on my daughter.  I am still yet to see her and I still may never see her again.  It is all in the hands of the court system.

There is a lot of media coverage relating to child sexual abuse, and I am not going to in any way try to trivialise this matter.  Child sexual abuse is an horrific crime that should not be allowed to happen.  However, what has happened to me and my daughter is wrong.  Although I have been told that it is very hard to prove, I am certain that it was my ex-wife who orchestrated this.  I know this by evidence she gave in court and by evidence my daughter gave when she admitted that mummy had taught her some very sophisticated sexualised language.

Some questions:

* When is the media going to bring this crime of emotional child abuse to the attention of the public?

* When are governments in this country going to run an inquiry into emotional abuse, consider policy options and pass legislation that enables the police and the DPP to prosecute the perpetrators of this crime?

I am sure that I am not the only person to have this happen to me.  It is obviously a tactic to keep parents from seeing their children.  Even if by chance, I am able to eventually gain custody of my daughter, I still want my daughter to have contact with her mother, albeit under strict conditions.  Children need both of their parents, but they should not be treated like pawns in a chess game.
