At around 6:30am one winters morning in 2020, 10-year-old Bridgette “Biddy” Porter was brutally killed by a teenage girl known to her. So vicious and so heinous was her killing, that the Supreme Court of NSW ordered the details of Biddy’s injuries be suppressed for twenty (20) years.

Now, four years after Biddy’s tragic death her parents, Rebekah and Dominic are fighting for justice for their precious little girl who, until now, has been made invisible by a system her parents say is focused on protecting their daughter’s killer, rather than meeting community expectations and achieving justice for their little girl and her loved ones.

In their fight for justice for Biddy, her parents are calling for Parliamentary Inquiries into the NSW Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) and the Mental Health Review Tribunal (MHRT).

In the state of New South Wales, no public servant or service should be above public scrutiny and accountability. These Inquiries will investigate the DPP’s handling of Biddy’s case, its accountability under the Charter of Victims Rights, the Victims Rights and Support Act 2013, and the ODPP (NSW) Prosecution Guidelines; and, the MHRT’s lack of transparency and accountability having absolute, independent power to release killers back into the community with victims’ families and the community powerless to object.

While the DPP and the MHRT are empowered to avoid public scrutiny and accountability, victims of serious crimes like Biddy continue to be silenced with justice denied them. And although Biddy’s parents know their campaign can never bring their precious little girl back, through Parliamentary Inquires into the DPP and the MHRT, essential reforms to Victims Services and a Coronial Inquest into Biddy’s brutal death; Rebekah and Dominic hope to help other victims of serious crimes and prevent similar attacks and killings by minors such as those that have occurred in recent months.

With the support of Philip Donato MP and Advocacy Australia, Rebekah and Dominic are asking for the community’s support. Please sign and share their petition today so together we can achieve #Justice4BiddyPorter.

Rebekah, Dominic and Advocacy Australia would like to thank the Hon. Rose Jackson, NSW Police, the District Commander Superintendent of the region, lead detectives and their team for their ongoing support and commitment to Biddy’s parents. We would especially like to thank NSW Police Commissioner Karen Webb APM for her genuine care and support for the Porter family, she has been integral in supporting Rebekah and Dominic’s quest for justice for their Biddy.
