|This photograph of Rosa, taken a few months after she was illegally removed by Citipointe church in 2008, should have set alarm bells ringing in the Australian Embassy in Phnom Penh, within AusAID and ACFID if they had been doing their job properly.|
The question of the removal and detention of Rosa and Chita, for close to six years now, against the express wishes of their parents, has never been heard in a Cambodian court of law. Chanti and Chhork have not relinguished responsibility for their daughters. On the contrary, they have been asking for their return for five years.

The March 2013 date is not a typographical error. These absurd allegations, along with the others made at around the same time (‘hindering’, ‘profiting from prostitution’), have sat on file at the Phnom Penh Municipal court until such time as Citipointe and the Global Development Group needed to use them - in the hope of intimidating me into silence about their child-stealing and evangelical scam in Cambodia. Pastor Brian Mulheran’s letter of Feb 2013 was a warning shot across the bow. When I refused to be intimated, Citipointe attempted to use the Cambodian legal system to silence me. That Citipointe will not sue me in Australia speaks volumes of the church’s real agenda here and its lack of moral scruples.
