Grace Tame reveals disturbing messages posted by her abuser: Nicolaas Bester

Grace Tame has uncovered the troubling messages she claims are being shared by her “cowardly” teacher, who nursed and molested her when she was 15.

Ms Tame took to Twitter on Monday night to speak out about the “open threats and harassment” she has been receiving from Nicolaas Bester for over a decade.

“Here he is, the twice convicted child molester referencing my childhood email that very few people know, instead of my name,” she tweeted.

“It was the login to my old Facebook that he and I used to communicate. He anticipates an act of revenge planned for the day my book is published.’

The sex abuse survivor advocate shared screenshots of the bizarre tweets from Bester, who warned a “plain old come-uppance” was in store for them.

‘Here it comes! Only four weeks left! Good ol’ come-upance is on the way…” he said, before sharing her childhood email address.

Nicolaas Bester was a 58-year-old teacher at St Michael’s Collegiate School, an Anglican girls’ school in Hobart, when he nursed and abused Ms Tame.

In 2011, the math teacher was sentenced to two years and 10 months in prison after pleading guilty to “maintaining a relationship with a youth under the age of 17” and possessing material related to child exploitation.

Bester served a year and nine months in prison and went on to complain that his conviction had cost him “everything”, including his standing in the community.

Ms Tame said she reported the tweets to police but said Australia’s “reactive justice system has been too slow” and little has changed.

The 27-year-old claims she has been dealing with the threatening messages “behind closed doors” for over a decade and now is the time to “take back her power”.

“This may not be the ideal platform to address this situation, but if not here, and if not now, where and when?” She said.

“This is an act of reclaiming my power against a predator operating in full view.”

Ms Tame said Bester, who she has known since she was 14, tricked her into believing she was “in love” with him.

He asked her to stay late after school, to spend time in his office, and even tried to visit her in the hospital, despite her family’s complaints at the school.

The 27-year-old said she had been dealing with the threatening messages “behind closed doors” and that it was now time to “take back her power” (picture, the tweets).

“I wrote about our dirty talks where I flattered him and we ended up dating,” Ms Tame wrote.

“It has taken years of growing and learning to understand. Processing is in progress. I’m not ashamed of any of that now.

‘But it should be him. He was an adult who abused his authority.’

Ms Tame said police found a folder on his computer containing students who were “prime grooming candidates” along with child abuse material.

Twitter users were quick to thank the attorney for her honesty and vulnerability.

“This makes me so angry on your behalf and on behalf of all other survivors of people like him. I wish I could prevent this,” one wrote.

Standing with you every moment of every day. I show my daughters their courage. They empower women and girls everywhere, said another.

“I am appalled that you still face threats from this pit. I remain inspired by your strength and wish you all the best,” shared a third.
