"It will be alleged the offences occurred between 1993 and 2000"

26 years before O’Donnell's interview with The Guardian.

If Liberals want to shut down communities because they don't want to pay for them that's one thing but it's lousy to cast aspersions on Aboriginal people because it polls better than "We're ideologically opposed to spending the money required".

Oombulgurri itself was closed down 9 years before O'Donnell's interview with the Guardian.

There's more too

I'd politely suggest you do a bit more background reading and possibly find a different case to champion - what Darren Morgan and his family are responsible for at Oombulgurri is up there with the worst systematic sexual abuse in the state's history. You had a whole community facilitating vile crimes against children and protecting the perpetrators - little different to what was going on in Katanning with the McKenna brothers back in the 70s.

I'm no supporter of blanket community closures, but they were 100% right to raze the Oombulgurri to the ground.
