IndyMedia Article: Sack the bludging politicians who stole Christmas

While our brave whistleblowers have miserable Christmases, no job, no hope of justice in our courts, families breaking up through the stress, the hopelessness of wall-to-wall corruption, the politicians live high off the land and can celebrate lavish christmases for themselves and families. Shame, parasites, Shame.

By Jo Hewitt, 24 Dec 2005

Happy Christmases have been stolen from our brave, ethical whistleblowers through gang mentality of lazy, incompetent, corrupt, kow-towing politicians and the farcical Departments they are responsible for.

WhistleBlowers Documents Exposed (WBDE) call for their sackings.


BACKGROUND

PART ONE
Campbelltown and Camden Nurses.

Year after year the Department of Health under Howard, Carr, Iemma have turned a blind eye to the damage they caused Campbelltown and Camden nurses and their lost jobs. See

2. ICAC do a typical ICAC inquiry.
National Parks and Wildlife Services. Thredbo. ICAC 'inquiry'. re "Smoking Gun" Memo. Corrupt conduct, false evidence, attempt to pervert the course of justice, perjury, misuse of information. Kite found Not Guilty by JURY 30 November 2005 (see ABC news report). Hon John Slattery AO QC was engaged by ICAC. Protected Disclosure. ICAC to 'fix'.

http://www.wbde.org/documents/2001_Sep_19_ICAC_John_Kite.php

3. The people (not the politicians, not the responsible departments, not the attorney general, but the people) in jury vindicate John Kite. Article "Former National Parks officer cleared of Thredbo inquiry lying". Jury finds John Kite and Susan Ryan not guilty. ICAC. Cripps Q.C. Slattery QC. Corrupt conduct, false evidence, attempt to pervert the course of justice, perjury, misuse of information. Protected Disclosure.
http://www.wbde.org/documents/2005_November_30_%20abc_news_John_Kite_Cleared.php


PART FOUR

PROTECTED DISCLOSURES AND CRIMINAL ACTION OF TARGETTING WHISTLEBLOWERS.

John Kite, Val Kerrison, the nurses, etc and the Protected Disclosures Act. ICAC could have enforced the Protected Disclosures Act for all of these people. The Ombudsman’s Office could have charged the Departments for what they did to these people. The Premiers office received evidence of Val Kerrison’s case around July 1995 and still has not acted. John Howard’s office received evidence re her case around 1996 and still has not stirred itself.

ICAC HAS RESPONSIBLE FOR ADMINISTERING THE PROTECTED DISCLOSURES ACT. ICAC HAVE SPENT PERHAPS MILLIONS ON INVESTIGATING WHY THE PROTECTED DISCLOSURES ACT DOES NOT PROTECT WHISTLEBLOWERS

SOON THE PUBLIC WILL BE EXPECTED TO SWALLOW ICACâ??S PUBLISHED FINDINGS/DRIVEL ON ITS OWN INVESTIGATION INTO THE SUBMISSIONS AND ITS OWN ACTIONS PERSECUTING WHISTLEBLOWERS.


PART FIVE

My personal opinion is that the politicians should be held accountable. They take and keep public money to administer the offices of prime minister, premier, attorney-general, opposition, etc etc.

WBDE have written repeatedly to the politicians including:

WE HAVE NOT RECEIVED EITHER AN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT NOR REPLY


Let's clean up Australia and call for their summary sackings.

This would send a clear message so their replacements would know that they would get the sack also unless they behaved differently.

I got to admit there was a problem here, Val wasn't going to get a doctor of her choice at Health Quest? Shame about the problem too even though she got it right there was something wrong with her?

ICAC: Community menace

If he goes to ICAC we get our contact to deal with it.

Vivian needs to reconsider the permanency offer in return for him changing his coronial evidence. He has already told me that he wont change his evidence in exchange for a permanent position. She knows that its already cost me a restructure to terminate his position.

If the second option is adopted it should leave him without a job, the PSA wont help him, he will be regarded as a disgruntled employee. He wont have the resources to fight a legal battle against the public purse and the information on his personal file will prevent him from gaining employment. This should dry up his resources causing him to abandon any legal action. What do you think.

Ring me at home when you receive this.

______________________

Once I went searching for the truth in NSW and I thought I had found the man?

Roger B Wilkins the then Director General in the Premiers office who was corrupt in his dealing with me. When you learn that the system is corrupt from the top down and you also realise that the Police Integrity Commission is selective, in otherworlds they use it for them and it really isn't a case of taking your matter to them and them acting on it.

Then you realise there is a major problem in public office in NSW and probably Australia. I have all the material but no forum to have it heard.

Once you realise that and also have no serious investigations by any official body set up to handle complaints including the police and the Ombudsman then you may feel like I did and stop working on a personal complaint, that no one had any regard for and to start to work on the big problem and that is who is leading this country and who is letting this happen?

Now I have found the man! Shame hoWARd shame on you!
