People For Schapelle Corby
When members of the public approach politicians about the Schapelle Corby case, specifically, with the direct primary evidence that proves she is innocent, almost invariably, they run and hide. They don't even reply.
Noting that this is the same evidence which proves corrupt acts by ministers and the AFP, they go to extreme lengths to avoid direct dialogue on the material itself. They pretend it doesn't exist. They blank those they are elected to serve.
In 2012, an exercise was conducted to demonstrate the lengths to which they were prepared to go, to dodge the bullet, and to close ranks around their colleagues.
A formal crime report was produced by an independent legal team. This was submitted to various parties, including the AFP and the Attorney-General. It was followed up repeatedly, as all recipients rapidly shoved it under the carpet and hid. FOI requests were subsequently submitted to shed light upon this unsightly panic.
Let's take the Attorney-General of the time, Nicola Roxon. Roxon was well aware of the Crime Report, because, apparently unknown to her, electronic submissions were set to create digital read-receipts when she opened them. She was caught red handed, metaphorically twitching her curtains whilst her front door was slammed.
Her sidekick, Jason Clare, used a different technique. He responded with a bizarre politico-speak letter which bore no relation whatsoever to the subject matter of the report:
When this was pointed out to him, he joined Roxon, in hiding.
The FOI data from the Australian Crime Commission yielded information of an even more sinister nature. It appeared that the ACC itself had been subjected to external pressure. Its own correspondence suggested that sanctions may be imposed upon it by other parties, in terms of restricting the future flow of information:
The AFP simply acknowledged receipt, and refused to respond thereafter:
Full details of the entire exercise are documented from the following web page:
The pattern is absolutely clear. Here was a formal Crime Report, inclusive of primary evidence and official ministerial documentation, yet every route was blocked. Everyone approached jumped for cover.
It was a hot potato no-one would handle.
Australia is closed for justice. However incontrovertible the evidence is, however conclusive the proof, the privileged and the powerful are above the law.
The establishment protects it own, at the expense of Schapelle Corby and the rest of us. They look after each other, come what may.
Australia's dirty little secret remains hidden to this day: the guilty remain protected, and the victim continues to be vilified.
