Statement From The Premier

27 May 2017

I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Anthony Foster - a great man who fought for justice.

My thoughts are with Chrissie - Anthony's soulmate - and all who loved him.

Anthony campaigned tirelessly for justice from the Catholic Church and the evil done to his daughters and his family.

That he was able to take the incredible hurt, pain, and anger caused by this and become an advocate for all child sexual abuse victims is a mark of just how remarkable Anthony was.

By speaking out against child sexual abuse, he helped other victims find their voice and gave them strength.

Anthony will never be forgotten and the fight for justice goes on.
