Victims say child abuse as serious as murder


Victims say child abuse as serious as murder

A child sex abuse victim says the perpetrator has never apologised, and the Jewish community continues to endorse the convicted man.

The victim – referred to only as AVB – has likened sex abuse of children within that community to murder.

AVB told a sex abuse inquiry that his convicted abuser – Daniel Hayman – has yet to offer an apology.

He says Hayman has also continued to have the support of senior rabbis, despite some co-operating with the inquiry.

Hayman was a camp chaperone at Yeshiva school, in Sydney, in the 1980s when he sexually abused AVB, who was then a teenager.

He was convicted in mid-2014, and given a suspended prison term.
