Its also a very serious matter that the Crown has failed to properly compensate the hundreds of abuse victims in state care in the 60's & 70's. After millions of dollars of legal aid & court costs the ruling from Justice Miller in the High Court at Wellington was that although the abuse was proven, the statute of limitations applied and the claims failed. Compare this to the perpetrators who are often extradited to face the court 40yrs after the event to pay for their crimes...yet their victims are denied compensation. Go Figure!
