The Family Court of Australia acknowledges the guilty verdicts delivered today arising from multiple charges that relate to events that took place in the 1980s.

These events constituted a very dark period in the history of the Court and resulted in horrific and unnecessary deaths, attempted murder as well as the destruction of property.

Throughout this period, the judges and staff of the Court demonstrated enormous courage by keeping the doors open and continuing to deal with the work required of them in what must have been frightening times.

Hopefully today’s outcome provides some relief and resolution for the victims’ families and for the many people who were impacted, including current and former judges and staff of the Family Court.
