14 NEWS FRIDAY NOVEMBER 18 2016 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 A PAEDOPHILE father who sexually abused his son, daughter and two nieces, aged between four and eight, has been jailed for 16 years The man, 57, who can only be identified as TRH, abused the children in Berrimah and Humpty Doo between 1984 and 1992. The man was aged in his See you in the Kakadu part of NT THE T-shirt at the centre of a brazen tourism promotion has started to arrive in post boxes. The shirt emblazoned with the logo, CU in the NT, was only available online at NTOfficial.com. It caused a huge stir last week with threats of legal action from government tourism boffins and a divided social media community loving and hating it. For those who loved it, the innuendo and usage of the word felt it represented all the larrikinism of the NT, with a bit of bad language tossed in. To those who hated it, they felt it undervalued the sophisticated nature of the tourism message, which by the way is, Do the NT. The NT News had to travel to the depths of Kakadu to discover the T-shirt in its natural habitat. For this lucky T-shirt owner it was all a bit of a lark. I just liked the fun of it thought it was a scream, she said. I bought a couple for a bit of fun. Late yesterday the site was still offering T-shirts and the more practical singlets for our tropical climates online starting at $29.99. ASHLEY MANICAROS Jailed incestuous dad displayed no qualms 20s and early 30s at the time of the offending and was jailed for 36 offences including carnal knowledge and indecent dealing with a child for offences in the Territory and Queensland. The NT Supreme Court heard the man picked up his son from Humpty Doo Primary School and forced him to perform oral sex on him while driving home. In a separate incident he engaged in a sexual act with two girls under aged seven and five in the cubbyhouse of his Humpty Doo home. Judge Stephen Southwood said TRH attempted to justify, rationalise and normalise his criminal behaviour in the NT during a psychologist report prepared for the court. They demonstrate a substantial minimisation and de nial of his offending behaviour many years after these crimes were committed, he said. In sentencing TRH, Judge Southwood said the offending was serious and involved high moral culpability. The offending involved a serious breach of trust. All of the children were of a young age and were in an extremely vulnerable situation. There are a number of different children who were his victims. The victims were of differ ent gender, they were prepubescent and two of his acts involved incest. The offence against his son was committed on a public street. Two of the offences were committed in the presence of the other victim. There was a significant difference in age between the offender and his victims. KIERAN BANKS Right to die laws fail in SA SOUTH Australian Premier Jay Weatherill says hes gutted by the defeat of a voluntary euthanasia bill that was the 15th attempt to pass such laws in the state. Mr Weatherill said he respects the decisions of MPs early yesterday, with the bill defeated by one vote in the lower house but is personally incredibly disappointed. The bill had earlier passed a second reading vote, the first time such legislation had got so far. I put an enormous amount of effort into this, I persuaded my colleagues to give government time for this, Mr Weatherill told ABC radio. Im persuaded by the palliative care specialists who say that this just represents another option that can be provided. It is about dignity and control and frankly about preventing extending suffering. Man killed in shooting A MAN has died after being shot in the stomach with a shotgun at a house in Brisbanes east.
