  • Dad banned from contact with daughters

    A Perth father has been banned from contact with his two daughters and will be entitled to only 12 photographs of his children a year after the WA Family Court found he posed an unacceptable risk to the girls physically, psychologically and emotionally. A conflict between the religious backgrounds of the former couple - the father and his family are Muslims and the mother's heritage is Roman Catholic - was one of the key issues played out at a hearing into the custody battle over the children, revealed in a judgment published this month. The religious conflict and the father's history of violence, sexually inappropriate behaviour towards a younger sister when he was a teenager and mental illness were among the issues that influenced the court to take the "option of last resort" and make orders that would prevent any relationship between him and his daughters.
