Bullied schoolboy and judicial corruption victim ignored by Bligh
Despite just telling Queenslanders she is committed to rooting out and fighting corruption, cronyism and secrecy, Queensland Premier, Anna Bligh, continues stonewalling and ignoring a Brisbane teenager, who was forced from school due to severe school bullying and then bullied in Queensland’s human rights court without a legal youth advocate.
Listen to the 4BC Radio interview detailing the judicial abuse and corruption:
“Judicial corruption means the voice of the innocent goes unheard, while the guilty act with impunity" Huguette Labelle, Transparency International Chair.
Last month, Commissioner Tony Fitzgerald QC, savaged Queensland Labor’s corruption, cronyism and secrecy.
Following this former Labor MP and police officer, Peter Pyke, Opposition Leader, John-Paul Langbroek, and Federal Opposition MP, Gary Hardgrave called on an independent Royal Commission to investigate Bligh Labor government corruption.
But Ms Bligh has knocked back their demand, claiming the ineffective and highly politicised Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) has all the necessary powers to investigate corruption allegations.
The CMC (ex CJC) “was set up in 1989 to root out corruption in the police service and public sector, but after seven years it has become a virtually untouchable organisation barely accountable to any elected body” The Sunday Mail 10 August 1997.

Due to lack of press freedom Ms Nash’s case has not been reported in Australia.
Commenting on the lack of press freedom, John Hartigan, head of Rupert Murdoch’s Australian operations said on 1 July 2009, “reporters have become prisoner to government spin and self interest”.
On 11 May 2007, he lamented “News Ltd papers were ordered not to disclose the details of an auditor’s report on politicians rorting their expenses, were not allowed to report which Sydney restaurants failed health inspections, which schools had the worst bullying records, which hospital provided the best health care or which pubs had the worst records of violence. ...It’s simply not acceptable”.
While Fairfax CEO, David Kirk said “my concern, quite simply, is that we as a country cannot preserve our democracy if we destroy the institutions that serve our democracy.”
