The fact that it is not a law to have mandatory reporting by those working with kids is atrocious, I can understand caution with rumours but if a professional witnesses or knows of abuse they should be bound by law to report it. It seems only Northern Ireland overules this UK lack of law by having a law that makes it an offence not to report an arrestable offence.
is it not law in a sense, in that if you knowingly don't report criminal activity, that can be seen and you can be charged with facilitating or indirectly being an accessory to a crime, by staying quiet?.
