Posted September 20, 2018 04:11:17When the mother of a two-year-old girl who was forced to leave her home last year found out she’d been arrested, she went to police to try and explain what happened.
But she says police have refused to take action and instead she’s been sent a letter that accuses her of being “fearful and paranoid”.
The letter was sent to the mother, who has not been named, on Tuesday, but she has since been told by the woman she is “not entitled to legal aid” and she is not entitled to a lawyer.
The letter said she “will not go to court” and the mother is “under investigation by police”.
“The police have made it very clear that I can’t go to the police,” the woman said.
“I’ve been given no opportunity to talk to a solicitor or a judge.”
The woman has been given a letter from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) that says she has been arrested and charged with the crime of “inciting another person to act against the person” of a police officer, the ABC understands.
The woman says the AFP letter makes it clear that she cannot file a complaint about her arrest.
“This is all just a big lie.
I’ve been told that I’m paranoid, and I don’t understand how this is happening,” the mother said.
The mother said she did not have any contact with the child since the incident last May.
“The child has been moved to a different home, but I’ve still got to live with her,” she said.
She said she was “horrified” that her son was in the custody of police and she has a “huge anger” towards the Australian Government.
“She’s the victim here, not me,” she told the ABC.
“They’re just going to take away my son, they’re not going to give him a proper life.”
