SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA — Australian authorities launched a new law last night, and, it has the world talking due to the laws sudden results. According to authorities, last night resulted in convicted child molesters losing their right to travel without authority from police.
The law, meant to protect international communities in Asia and beyond from sexual molesters apparently is already working. No less than 24 hours after Australia launched the law, a man was detained at a local airport for his molestation convictions — losing his right to immediately travel unless otherwise permission was granted by police.
The New York Times reports that Australian officials intend to continue to enforce the law throughout much of the country.
