00:00 I/V Gaye Davidson and Janice Buckingham
re cleared of indecent assault in the Christchurch Civic Child Care Centre
case, the charges were brought against us as a result of disclosure
interviews with children, sceptical of the whole process by which sexual
abuse charges are brought against people, angry at the police and Social
Welfare, the whole case just gathered momentum and got out of hand.
I/V Janice Buckingham and Gaye Davidson re the effect the charges have had on
personal and family lives has been devastating, very concerned about other
childcare workers throughout New Zealand and the state of childcare, the
workers also need protection .
