You've destroyed my image of Crocodile Dundee with this information about knives being illegal in Australia.... I'm shocked!
Yes, it certainly opens lots of questions about what status the Taiwanese Cult Members in Australia are living under...
I have no idea.
Are they Sponsored by the Cult?
They pay something like $0.50 to $1.00 per hour. It is not enough to live on.If they are "Sponsored" by the Cult....?
If they are employed by the Cult....is what the Cult pays really enough money to live on? Is this even considered by the Australian laws?
Yes. They can also collect welfare which you can live on, but not well, especially with a child.Are they legally allowed to work in Australia..?
The child would have full status for work and healthcare if she has a visa.If the Mother came to work for the Cult....what is the status of her dependent child? Is the child allowed to work? Was the parent required to show any sort of ability of monetary support for her dependent while in Australia?
I don't know.Does the Cult take away their passports as I've heard they do in Clearwater to the foreign workers there....
More like 90%. Senior roles in the Sea Org are Aussies. Taiwanese are used for EPF and handing out flyers. Not sure who does the auditing.I also read that about 50% of the Cult Staff in Australia are from Taiwan.
None of the stories mention if she is on a work VISA, however if they say he is Taiwanese, which indicates he is not a Australian citizen which indicates she is on some sort of religious work VISA. In this case, after any jail sentence he would be deported. Not sure if she would be deported too.There was the earlier case of the Taiwanese girl there ....that was put in Cult Isolation....and broke a window with her hand....then ended up in a Hospital.
I believe she said she had been "trafficked" to Australia by the Cult...
I have many of the same questions about the Eastern Europeans and Russians I've heard that work for the Cult in Clearwater Florida....
I guess in the States they are brought in under some sort of Religious worker status...but I've no idea what that means...or what their rights are under that sort of situation.
If he is deemed mentally unfit, he may be placed under psychiatric care instead.
There are pretty much no options which look good for the family.
