A number of calls have been made to the police hotline number set up for former and current Gloriavale members.
It comes after police appealed for people to come forward with information, following a number of reports in the media from former members telling their stories of life inside the secretive Christian community, some of which alleged sexual and child abuse.
The hotline number was set up six days ago, and since then a “number of calls” have been received, police said.
This “investigation” seeems to have arisen out of John Campbell’s need to boost viewers for his show and save it from the axe. One thing I know is that without a doubt, one should never ever believe any mainstream media meme.
Let’s bring real child abusers to the courts sure, but we’ve already had one gross miscarriage of justice in Peter Ellis’s completely corrupt conviction in Christchurch in 1993. Its very easy to get it wrong.
And I wonder if this inquisition would be proceeded with quite so enthusiastically if Gloriavale was a Muslim community.
