The pair were convicted in the South Australian District Court in Mount Gambier last month of two counts each of incest relating to the conception of their daughter, Celeste, born last year, and another baby who died in 2001, a few days after birth, from a congenital heart defect.
Under Australian law, convicted criminals cannot profit directly from their crimes.
Hamish Thomson, the executive producer of 60 Minutes, was quoted in News Ltd publications yesterday confirming that money was offered to the couple.
“We bought them some clothes and they might have to move town and we have offered to give them some money to cover the costs of their move, if that happens,” he was quoted as saying.
A South Australia Police spokesman said officers from the south-east district, which encompasses Mount Gambier, were looking into the case.
Cheque Book Journalism, where would tabloid television be with out it? What is really sad about this story is that the producers of programs like Sixty Minutes know that paying criminals for their story ins both morally reprehensible and illegal and yet they still seek a way to get around the rules when doing so ensures that they get some juicy ratings fodder like the story of this deluded couple.
“moving expenses” ? Bah!
I wonder what wiggle room are they trying to find to pay for Davo’s story now that the gag order has expired?
A SOUTH Australian woman has given birth to her father’s son after the couple had sex.
John and Jenny Deaves reunited 30 years after Mr Deaves separated from Jenny’s mother.
Jenny was 31 and just two weeks after meeting, father and daughter had sex.
“John and I are in this relationship as consenting adults,” Mrs Deaves told the Nine Network last night.
“We are just asking for a little bit of respect and understanding.”
Their nine-month-old daughter Celeste, shown on TV, appears fit and healthy.

The state that we usually make jokes about when it comes to incest is usually Tasmania but this story comes from South Australia. Now my understanding of the law is that this is a relationship that must surely contravene the statutes forbidding incest. I feel terribly sorry for the child who is the fruit of this abhorrent relationship and wonder what sort of future she will face.
Now under the brave new world envisioned by the the social engineers from the left we should ,of course not be at all critical of this couple’s relationship. On planet leftard such unions are probably desirable anyway. Now when I used to breed dogs the mating of a dog to one of it’s offspring was called “line breeding” and it was used to try to ensure the propagation of desirable characteristics. Maybe this is the beginning of a new leftist brand of eugenics that will ensure the next generation is even more gullible than the last…
Family matters, revisited
When I posted about this topic before there were no examples of just how this affects the individuals involved the latest article puts a very human face on the situation.
Minutes later, the boy finally enters the living room. Imran is a handsome lad and seems perfectly normal. He has just spent the day at his school in Bradford, where he is often top of the class.
Look a little closer, though, and you can see hearing aids tucked behind each of his ears. Imran is profoundly deaf because a vital nerve which carries sounds to his brain has failed to develop.
Medically, there is nothing that can be done to cure his disability. It is the same affliction that has struck his teenage cousin, a girl called Myra. Two of the children’s uncles also suffer severe deafness. Is this a tragic coincidence and are the family just unlucky?
According to Imran’s mother, the answer is an emphatic “No”.
Union: A Muslim couple marry in traditional dress
“I married my first cousin, which is why Imran is deaf,” she says. “Myra’s parents are also first cousins, which is why she is also deaf.
“When I started my family I was just a young girl. I had no idea that marrying a close relative would be medically dangerous for any children I had. My parents did not know either. Now our son is paying the price for our ignorance.”
The mother (whom we will call Zuhra) agreed to talk to the Mail only on condition of anonymity.
She is terrified of being identified and condemned by her extended family of 100 members, spread across Northern England, for speaking out about one of the most controversial – and taboo – subjects in multi-cultural Britain: inter-marriage between cousins which has left hundreds of children damaged or dead.
“My parents would think I had betrayed them,” she says. “They were born in Pakistan and are stuck in the past. They are good people, but they can’t accept that my son’s deafness has been caused by my husband and myself being so closely related.
“My father would like my oldest daughter, who is 18 and at college, to marry her cousin. He already has a male relative in mind. But I will do everything to avoid it happening.”
This week, Government Minister Phil Woolas provoked a furore by warning of the health risks of cousin marriages among British Pakistanis. He claimed the practice was sending the number of birth defects among children in these communities soaring.
The extent of the problem is made very clear by this statistic quoted in the article
Although British Pakistanis account for three per cent of the births in this country, they are responsible for 33 per cent of the 15 to 20,000 children born each year with genetic defects.
A medieval mindset is clearly the problem here and a tendency to see the role of marriage as a market place where children are used as pawns in a never ending quest to increase or maintain family prestige which tends to stifle the natural instinct to seek genetic diversity is also in play here.A religious faith that sees women and girls as beings who are less autonomous than men has also been a factor that can not be ignored. Clearly women like “Zuhra” have to be supported in her desire to end this cultural practice and no amount “cultural sensitivity” or multicultural political correctness should stand in the way of that.
