Helen speaks for cult victims
Sarah Crawford | 12th December 2009
ABUSED but not defeated cult victim Helen Pomery has made it her life’s mission to shine a light on the underbelly of shady religious organisations in Australia.
The Maleny resident has written a letter to all senators in Canberra asking for an inquiry into religious groups linked to abuse.
It is not the first time Ms Pomery has written calling for a senate inquiry, but this time she was spurred on to put pen to paper after independent senator Nick Xenophon called for an investigation into the religious organisation Scientology.
Mr Xenophon used parliamentary privilege to table letters detailing claims of abuse, forced abortion and false imprisonment.
Ms Pomery said Scientology was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to cultist abuse in Australia.
