Further drop in foreign students to Oz

Australian education industry has witnessed an 8.7% drop in international enrolments, with the number of oversees students, particularly Indians, reporting a sharp fall.

The hardest hit enrolments were recorded in the vocational education and English language areas, where numbers fell more than 21% on March last year, The Age reported.

The report said the biggest challenge for the sector is the Indian market where the numbers all sectors fell by 30.4%, continuing the year's trend, outlined in figures released in April for February enrolments.

Apart from attributing the drop to 'safety issues of Indian students', many education experts have also blamed Australian government for tightening immigration laws that were leading to the drop in student enrolments.

Two Oz teenagers implicated in Indian student's murder

Ahead of the first death anniversary of Indian student, Nitin Garg, an Australian court sentenced an unidentified teenager to 18 months probation on Thursday. The minor reportedly was a witness and accesory to the stabbing incident that strained ties between the two countries in January this year.

The 16 year old boy, who has not been named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty in the Supreme Court to being an accessory to the murder of 21 year old Garg in Cruickshank Park on January 2,2010 according to 'The Age'. The court was told that Garg was on his way to work at a nearby Hungry Jack's outlet when the two boys, both aged 15 at the time, noticed him walking past while speaking on his mobile phone. The prosecution said the accused told his friend, "that bloke's phone looks nice", which prompted him to allegedly approach Garg and stab him in the abdomen.

Days after Garg's murder, police interviewed the boy who did not say anything about the incident. However, later during another interview on April 26, the accused changed his story and told the police that he and his co-accused were in the Yarraville park on the night of the stabbing. His co-accused, also a 16-year-old boy, has already been charged with murder and is due to face a committal hearing in February next year.

Phone records showed Garg tried to ring triple-0 for help immediately after he was stabbed but the accused yelled at him to "drop the phone" because he was scared he was calling the police. In April this year, the boy told a friend's father "he was going to tell him something he had never told anyone before" and admitted to being present during Garg's stabbing. The court heard that the man contacted police with the information.

The boy then agreed to wear a listening device to record a conversation with his co-accused in which the alleged murderer incriminated himself. The prosecution described the boy's co-operation as significant and said that a non-custodial sentence was an option for the court. Justice Paul Coghlan said the crime was serious but the boy's undertaking to give evidence against his co-accused meant the probation sentence was warranted. Coghlan said if the teenager had not pleaded guilty and not agreed to assist the prosecution of his co-accused, the 16-year-old would have spent two years in a youth justice centre.

'One in six Oz female students are raped'

About one in six Australian female university students have been raped, and many more sexually assaulted or harassed, during their life, a survey released on Friday showed.

The findings were contained in a National Union of Students poll of more than 1,500 women studying at university. It found that 17% of respondents had been raped and 12% had experienced attempted rape, although the assaults did not necessarily occur while they were at university.

The union's women's officer Courtney Sloane said the online survey showed that violence against women was unacceptably high.

"Women at university tend to come from middle-class and upper middle-class social groups, and the survey shows they have experienced sexual assault, harassment, and obsessive behaviours at a high level," she told the Sydney Morning Herald.

The study found that 67% of respondents had been through an unwanted sexual experience of some kind, with 31% saying they had had sex when they were, or had felt, unable to consent.

Some 17% of those who completed the survey between September 2010 and March 2011 said they had experienced stalker-like obsessive behaviour.

In most cases of sexual assault (56%) the offender was a friend or acquaintance, and in 22% of instances the woman knew the perpetrator intimately, it reported.

Rarely were the assaults investigated, with only two% of women taking the matter to police, mostly because they thought it was not serious enough to report.

The figures are above numbers obtained by a 2005 Australian Bureau of Statistics personal safety survey which found that 19% of women had experienced sexual violence since the age of 15.

The NUS survey follows a 2009 scandal in which past and present students at the all-male residential college at Sydney University developed a Facebook page which described itself as "pro-rape, anti-consent".

Rape is a heinous crime. Shame that some women trivialize it. Some guy whistling or making unkind remarks is certainly not a rape in its strict sense of meaning.

with 31% saying they had had sex when they were, or had felt, unable to consent.

Drunk? Enjoyed it at first but regretted later cause guy didn't call back?

Some 17% of those who completed the survey between September 2010 and March 2011 said they had experienced stalker-like obsessive behaviour.

Women should report this to police. This doesn't constitute rape or does it?

In most cases of sexual assault (56%) the offender was a friend or acquaintance, and in 22% of instances the woman knew the perpetrator intimately, it reported.

Knew the perpetrator intimately?!

Rarely were the assaults investigated, with only two% of women taking the matter to police, mostly because they thought it was not serious enough to report.

That makes it 2% ... (edit/add ... 2% of one in six) ... still too high a figure but nowhere close to one in six ... BS. Total cow dung.

The figures are above numbers obtained by a 2005 Australian Bureau of Statistics personal safety survey which found that 19% of women had experienced sexual violence since the age of 15.


Rape is a heinous crime ... women shouldn't trivialize it.
