CHILD sex abuse victims have slammed Education Queensland after learning two school principals who had prior knowledge of a Toowoomba tennis identity’s inappropriate behaviour with children failed to immediately contact police.
A 77-year-old man was charged over offences that happened between June 2004 and September 2009 but was found earlier this month to have been “unsound of mind” when the crimes occurred.
For members of international victim support group SNAP, who set up a vigil outside the Hume St office of The Department of Education today, the finding was of little comfort.
They called on the department to release the whereabouts of the two Toowoomba principals who confronted the man over suspicions of abuse, in 2004 and 2008 respectively, without notifying authorities at once.
