Bullied schoolboy and judicial corruption victim suffers while ‘compassionate’ Governor carries on as usual
Queensland Governor, Penelope Wensley’s dogged silence on judicial corruption allegations involving her brother, Robert Wensley QC, and three other Queensland judges, as detailed by Jennifer Nash on Radio 4BC, remains unchanged. https://publish.indymedia.org.uk/media/2009/08/435571.mp3
Governor Wensley was sworn in as the 25th Governor of Queensland in front of 480 selected guests on July 29, 2008. The swearing in ceremony cost tax payers $80,000.
Premier Anna Bligh at the time defended the cost, saying the ceremony was important because “this is an important role in a democracy. It’s not a lavish affair but I think it is important that a formal ceremony be undertaken,” she said.
Ms Bligh further enthused “Penelope Wensley is a distinguished Queenslander and ... will also bring a great warmth and compassion to the role of governor”...
However, Governor Wensley has shown no compassion and no humanity towards Ms Nash and her long suffering son. In fact she has point blank refused to acknowledge them and respond to their correspondence and phone calls without explanation.
To date the allegations by Ms Nash and her son that their courtroom audiotapes and transcripts were repeatedly edited in order to pervert the course of justice, remain unacknowledged as government apparently refuses to take a position one way or another vis-a-vis these serious allegations.
“Equal treatment before the law is a pillar of democratic societies. When courts are corrupted by greed or political expediency, the scales of justice are tipped, and ordinary people suffer. Judicial corruption means the voice of the innocent goes unheard, while the guilty act with impunity” Huguette Labelle, Chair of Transparency International.
On 20 August 2009, Queensland Independent MP, Dorothy Pratt, asked Attorney General, Cameron Dick why he has not responded to the documented and corroborated judicial corruption complaint and why he has not answered Ms Nash’s correspondence and phone calls. His answer is due in Parliament on 18 September.
Due to lack of press freedom, this matter has not been reported in Australia.
