Sexual Assault By Police On Old Man On Melbourne Streets Ignored By Lord Mayor And City Councillors

In 1953, my grandfather, Ralph Blanchard (pictured above), attended the coronation of Queen Elisabeth The Second.

Last year, on 9/11, when I attended the same queen’s memorial service at St Paul’s Cathedral, I was physically and sexually assaulted by police.

This happened on Swanston Street a few hundred metres from the Town Hall.

The police who assaulted me are now putting me on trial. Trauma upon trauma for me.

On April 6 this year, I wrote to the Lord Mayor asking her to support an independent IBAC (Independent Broad-based Anti-corrution Commission) investigation into the assault. These police cannot be trusted to investigate themselves.

On April 13, the Lord Mayor had not replied so I wrote again including to all city Councillors again asking for support for an IBAC investigation.

Not one replied.

They dont care.

On April 17, the front page of Melbourne’s Herald-Sun newspaper reported “Criminals’ Free Run”.
