Marc will give evidence about the abuse he suffered in St Edmund’s Intermediate School and St Paul’s High School, Dunedin, by two Christian Brothers, a priest and a lay teacher. The abuse he suffered was by people who knew of his vulnerability due to his family situation where his brother, father and grandfather passed away within a three-year period. Marc will describe the difficulty of obtaining redress from the Professional Standards Office in Australia, including compensation he received, and the lack of ongoing support provided. Marc has also approached the National Office for Professional Standards in New Zealand and the investigation is ongoing.
