NT Intervention Coverage

NT Intervention

The ARC was established as a political advocacy body in response to the Australian government’s Northern Territory Intervention, which sent troops into 76 Aboriginal communities in 2007, supposedly in response to claims of child sexual abuse, however no charges were ever laid after investigations.  It was later found that a high level government officer had falsely claimed on a televised national investigative news program to be a community worker, who had alleged that there were high levels of child sexual abuse in communities.
