In the circumstances of the instant case, the court was satisfied that it was in the best interests of the child to have contact with her father as a matter of urgency, but due to allegations of sexual abuse made against the father by the child, there was a need for contact to take place in the protective presence of an independent person so that observations could be made in an unobtrusive way.
