Family Court chief calls for disclosure of confidential mediation discussions- to help combat violence

This all sounds like a typical example of the right hand not knowing what the left hand is doing. Two years ago, when I attended mediation at a Family Relationship Centre, I was told in the initial verbal information session, that it was not in the "best interests of the mediation" to discuss or even raise, issues of past violence and abusive behaviour. I did though, because it was his behaviour that had brought us to mediation in the first place. I answered their questions truthfully, and even got them to tick the box that I considered that the ex would be capable of murdering our child. None of it was taken seriously.
