Angelina Jolie pens op-ed about the increase in child abuse during coronavirus isolation

Double-edged sword: Isolating victims 'is a well-known tactic of control by abusers, meaning that the social distancing that is necessary to stop COVID-19 is one that will inadvertently fuel a direct rise in trauma and suffering for vulnerable children,' wrote Jolie; shown in 2018 on a mission for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees at a refugee camp in Jordan

 

Angelina Jolie outlined how children are at risk of abuse while isolated at home during the coronavirus pandemic in an op-ed published Thursday by Time magazine.

 

The 44-year-old actress and activist noted that children may be 'especially vulnerable' to the pandemic's 'secondary' effects, even though they're more resistant to its physical symptoms.

 

'Isolating a victim from family and friends is a well-known tactic of control by abusers, meaning that the social distancing that is necessary to stop COVID-19 is one that will inadvertently fuel a direct rise in trauma and suffering for vulnerable children,' wrote Jolie. 

 

She explained that many children may be at a greater risk of experiencing domestic abuse amid shelter-in-place orders and economic insecurity.

Stating the bleeding obvious!

If anything could be predicted from locking people up with other people for weeks at a time is that domestic violence and abuse would increase, as it has.

Divorce lawyers must be "happy" in anticipation of the riches to come once this is over.

Well it had been nearly 18 years since she had been there (although she has been purchasing a lot of land through an agent)

 

 

Seventeen years after her first visit to Cambodia, Angelina Jolie has come under fire for her conduct while casting a film based on a Khmer Rouge survival story And in 2011, it was reported that Ms. Jolie had purchased land in Battambang province from Yim Tith, alias Ta Tith, a notorious Khmer Rouge commander who has since been charged with genocide.

At times, Ms. Jolie’s involvement in Cambodia has been portrayed as just another celebrity “white knight” whose vanity projects have done little, if any, good for the country.----Cambodian Daily

You've misunderstood, either deliberately or through lack of basic  comprehension, the paragraph you've quoted in isolation.

 

"We’ve been coming back and forth for 17 years. It feels like a second home to me,” Ms. Jolie told reporters at a news conference in Siem Reap the day before the February 18 2018 Cambodian premiere of “First They Killed My Father.”

 

She was as United Nations Goodwill ambassador to Cambodia since 2002; gained Cambodian citizenship in 2005. Appointed a United Nations High Commissioner to Refugees Special Envoy to Cambodia in 2012. 

 

Sorry if facts upset your narrative.

What could have been a polite post pointing out what you feel I had got wrong----had to turn into that silly one up man ship---I guess you get used to seeing so much here,

 

I understand she was grated citizenship gomangosteen----but she wasn't there to except it..Madox her son was. I understand she she was appointed goodwill ambassador but that was in 2001. (Jolie was named a UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador in 2001) As the paper states she has hardly returned to Cambodia except for her new movie which premiered there, although you are quite right gomangosteen she often uses phases like its a 2nd home to me--coming back and forth---much the same Phases are used with her other interests in 1/Tanzania in 2001--2/Namibia: In 2003--3/Colombia: In June 2019--4/Bangladesh: In February 2019,

 

Some may think They (Cambodia)  has done well with Angelina Jolie-----well its certainly a voice that people would listen to.

Others may feel that she has done quite well from them----The land (she can now acquire  being a Cambodian) is prime.

And was purchased from some one of the stature of Adolf Eichmann

 

                 The humanitarian icon flew to a remote part of northwest Cambodia after a screening of the movie

                  she directed First They Killed My Father in Siem Reap and later made a £32,000 offer through her

                  charity for a stunning 2.5 hectare plot of riverside land. The land is directly next to a heavily-guarded

                      jungle hideaway that Jolie, a UNHCR goodwill ambassador, bought in 2002 from a notorious commander

                      accused of genocide and crimes against humanity during the Khmer Rouge reign of terror 40 years ago.

                   He was accused of the mass murders in 2015.  Confirming the sale for the first time, reclusive 

                         Yim Tith – Now in his 80s, was charged with genocide in December 2015 after 600,000 people died but remains free and since

                      selling his jungle home to Jolie in 2002 he has lived quietly with his wife in a comfortable

                       single-storey rural home 20 miles away where he tends an orchard of dragon fruit trees.

                        Speaking by phone, Yim Tith confirmed to a Phnom Penh-based journalist

                       working for Mail Online that he reluctantly sold his land to Jolie after

                       being pressured by government officials who warned him the land would be requisitioned

                   for a wildlife reserve if he did not sell. 'I didn't want to sell, but the government told me they would

                                  take control of the land if I did not,' he said, confirming the deal for the first time.

                                            'We decided to accept the offer for little money and leave rather than be forced to

                                                                  leave with no money at all.'

 

The Madox Jolie foundation have plans to buy more connecting land and set up a resort.......

 

but the land she has now, is now the headquarters ...................

 

UK Paper report

 

Cambodia charity headquarters are shacks with no running water, barely any electricity and live-in workers are fed white rice and banned from sex - while actress doesn't spend the night and flies out on helicopter

  • Angelina Jolie's home in Cambodia, which also acts as the headquarters for her charity the Maddox Jolie-Pitt Foundation, is made up of a few shacks in a field
  • The compound in Samlaut, in the Battambang province, has no running water, electricity for only four hours a day at night and has no mobile phone signal 
  • According to a handbook distributed to visiting health specialists who are assigned to the MJP, conditions at the compound are Spartan at best 
  • Meals consist of mostly white rice every day and workers are banned from having sex, the handbook states 
  • Unlike Jolie, who is ferried in and out by helicopter, workers get around on motorbike and have to be wary of snakes, mosquitoes and land mine
