A woman claiming to be the victim of a “VIP pedophile ring”, which involved three former prime ministers, has alleged she was prostituted to “pedophile parties” at Parliament House in Canberra.
Speaking to media in Sydney, Fiona Barnett detailed her alleged abuse by the alleged elite pedophile ring 40 years ago.
The 45-year-old said she was abused by the ring, which included high-ranking politicians, police and members of the judiciary, at the age of five and claimed there were thousands of other victims.
“My experiences were horrific beyond words,” she said. “But the way I’ve been treated for reporting the crimes I witnessed and experienced has been far worse than my original abuse experiences.”
The northern NSW woman went on to detail “hundreds of crimes” she claimed she had witnessed, including child abduction, torture, rape and murder.
Ms Barnett described the alleged operation as a “very well-coordinated international pedophile ring”, and said there was a strict hierarchy.
“I was only saved for the VIP pedophiles,” she said.
“It’s a hierarchy, what I witnessed was the very top of the hierarchy.”
