Their range of garments, in sizes from 000 rompers for threemonth-old babies, to T-shirts for children up to 12, has sparked in ternational outrage. The Ivan Milat baby romper has a picture of his face and the slogan: Australians Just Love Backpackers. Other T-shirts include the words Free Ted Bundy and Ted Bundy is Innocent, and Serial Killer in Training. Child Safety Commissioner Bernie Geary said he would be leading the charge to ensure the garments were not sold for kids. The founder and CEO of international artists website redbubble.com said offending garments were removed once complaints had been received. But last night there were still dozens of controversial garments for sale on the website. Order on abattoirs By ADAM GARTRELL and PETER VENESS President reacts to ban HE SAID IT SUSILO Bambang Yudhoyono Indonesian President We have to highly respect animal welfare CANBERRA: Indonesias President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono has intervened in the live cattle export controversy by ordering an investigation of his countrys abattoirs. The Federal Government this week suspended livestock exports to Indonesia in response to shocking footage of cattle being mistreated in that countrys slaughterhouses. Dr Yudhoyono yesterday ordered the probe, saying his nation needed to take action to secure its meat supplies. We have to highly respect animal welfare. The Agriculture Minis ter and Health Minister must visit the abattoirs, he said. What we need to do is to find a solution for the short and long term. Dr Yudhoyono said the country needed to find a swift solution to ensure meat supplies ahead of the important Islamic holidays of Ramadan and Idul Fitri. Meanwhile, Meat and Livestock Australias role in ensuring cattle are treated properly in Indonesian abattoirs is likely to be investigated in a Senate inquiry. The Greens will seek the support of Labor and coalition senators for a short and sharp inquiry into the MLA, which is under fire over how it has used funds raised through a cattle levy. The Nationals will discuss the inquiry at a meeting on Monday, while the Labor caucus and Liberals are expected to look at the issue on Tuesday. The Australian Beef Association has recommended scrutiny of the export bodys $171 million budget. Horns of a dilemmaP21Rape of women rampant at uni SYDNEY: About one in six Australian female university students have been raped, and many more sexually assaulted or harassed during their life, a survey released yesterday showed. The findings were contained in a National Union of Students poll of more than 1500 women studying at university. It found that 17 per cent of respondents had been raped and 12 per cent had experienced attempted rape, although the assaults did not necessarily occur while they were at university. The unions womens officer Courtney Sloane said the online survey showed violence against women was unacceptably high. Vic flood alert MELBOURNE: Authorities are urging people camping in Victorias east over the long weekend to be careful of high rivers. Communities in Victorias far east had been on flood alert after receiving more than 150mm of rainfall in 24 hours. The weather is beginning to improve, however.
