Part 20: Australia’s “irrelevant” crimes against humanity. Another email to Queensland’s Justice Minister, Yvette D`Arth, with yet another example of Centrelink’s Waivergate rip-off. Ronald's space

 Below is another email to the Queensland Justice Minister, Yvette D`Arth, with details of another victim of Centrelink’s civil rights violating “Account payable” scam. I strong recommend that readers check out the ABC’s AM program web link below for details of how Centrelink tried to defraud a woman of $25,000 by falsely accusing her of failing to provide information when in point of fact a human error, i.e. a “Commonwealth error” had occurred and the Waiver of Debt rule in paragraph 1,237 (A) of the Social Security Act should have been applied.

Keep in mind that the civil rights issue is simple; Centrelink has NO CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT, and therefore no legal right, to issue demands for repayment until a court has independently and impartially determined “the primary facts of the matter.” Consequently, anyone who gets hit with a demand for repayments should immediately ask “When did a court decide that I was to blame for the over-payments and why didn’t the court ask for my input?”

REMEMBER: If there is no court decision, then there is no legally valid claim.

Okay, below is my email to Yvette D`Arth:

 

Dear Minister D`Arth, In case you think that the information that I am providing to you is a load of bunkum, check out this ABC AM web link from 6th February 2016. Complaints against Centrelink soar, Govt blames IT can be found at the following web link.

http://www.abc.net.au/am/content/2015/s4401576.htm

I would draw your attention to the following comments on that ABC webpage:

Off-duty cop busted drink driving, three times the legal limit Corporate Australia

(Former police commissioner Ken Lay - not amused!)

AN off-duty police woman has been busted for drink driving through a Melbourne suburb at more than three times the legal limit.

The Victoria Police senior constable who works in Victoria’s western region returned a positive reading after being pulled over in North Rd in the southeastern suburb of Ormond at 11.50pm last night.

A subsequent evidentiary breath test returned a reading of 0.179 per cent.

The officer’s driver’s licence was immediately suspended and she is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving offences.

The force’s internal investigators at Professional Standards Command have been briefed and the officer faces internal disciplinary action.

heraldsun.com.au  1 Feb 2016

It's 'amazing' how the corporate media publish the names of people who commit similar offences but not the name of people in public office, in this case the  police officer.

Are they working in collusion to suppress criminals in the police force which are a danger to the general populous?

It's all part of the 'nanny state' agenda.

Putting the spotlight on global retailers’ darkest secret Corporate Australia


The time has come for Australian shoppers to ask where their groceries have come from.
Ingrid Landau
 
AUSTRALIAN shoppers need to ask their leaders: What are we doing to encourage companies to address labour abuses in their supply chains?

There’s a flurry of activity in the United Kingdom right now as companies and consumers gear up for the supply chain transparency provision in the Modern Slavery Act to kick in.

From April 1, companies carrying on a business in the UK with an total annual turnover of $72 million (£36 million) or more must report on steps they are taking to ensure that slavery, forced labour and human trafficking is not taking place in their own businesses— or in their supply chains. About 12,000 companies will be caught by this new rule.

The UK Act reflects growing global recognition of the problem of forced labour and other forms of labour exploitation in supply chains and the need to take action.

The International Labour Organisation reports that there are almost 21 million people worldwide trapped in forced labour alone. Some 19 million are in the private sector, with illicit profits totalling $209 billion (US$150 billion) annually.

Revelations of serious labour exploitation within the Australian and global supply chains of major Australian companies are increasingly frequent. This includes clothing, c...

Push for RCEP “convergence†with TPP AFTINET

12 February 2016

When Trade Minister Andrew Robb signed the TPP he told the Fairfax press that he was now setting his sights on the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP). The two deals combined would create “a vast trade agreement architecture†for the world, he said.

As RCEP talks continue in Brunei this week, Robb is not the only one pushing for the RCEP and for it to set similar rules as the TPP does.

RCEP includes the 10 ASEAN countries, including Japan and Korea, who are both also signatories to the TPP. They want to see some convergence between the deals, including stronger monopolies on life-saving medicines and inclusion of foreign investor rights to sue governments over domestic legislation (ISDS).

TPP: What you need to know & what you can do about it AFTINET

The Trans-Pacific Partnership – or TPP – is a massive trade deal covering 40 per cent of the world’s economy, between the US, Australia and 10 other Pacific Rim countries.

Except it’s not only – or even mainly – about trade. It is about rules for global corporations, which could prevent future governments from protecting the public interest.

The TPP allows foreign corporations to bypass our courts and sue our governments in international tribunals if they can argue that future laws could harm their investment (read: their profits). There are increasing numbers of cases against governments trying to protect the environment, access to medicines, and even over an increase to the minimum wage.

The TPP also gives more monopoly rights to big pharmaceutical companies, so that they can charge higher prices for medicines for longer.

Here in Australia this means our health system could pay hundreds of millions of dollars a year more for lifesaving biologics medicines (the kind that can treat serious diseases like cancer). In developing countries it means millions of people will simply go without the treatment they need.

The TPP gives extra copyright protections for big corporates at the expense of consumers and internet users.

The TPP was negotiated behind closed doors with detailed input from US c...

Scathing criticism of DFAT’s TPP analysis AFTINET

11 February 2016

Crikey has published a scathing criticism of the TPP’s 'National Interest Analysis' from Bernard Keane, titled "Whoo boy, trade agreement to save Australian business a whopping … $150kâ€

Mr Keane argues that the only “hard evidence†for benefit presented in the analysis is that “businesses will save less than $150,000 on paperworkâ€.

“Perhaps DFAT was ashamed of its document, because there isn’t a single sentence of actual analysis in the dozens and dozens of pages of the document or its attachments,†he writes.

Record number of ISDS cases in 2015 AFTINET

10 February 2016

As the world prepares for a massive expansion of the investor-state dispute settlement  (ISDS) system through the TPP, startling information has come to light.

As the world prepares for a massive expansion of ISDS thanks to the TPP, startling new information has come to light: it’sbeen revealedby UNCTAD that foreign investors launched  70 new ISDS cases against governments last year, more than any prior year.

This is twice the number of new cases than were launched just five years earlier. The total number of outstanding cases is now almost 700.

They also report that foreign investors have launched more ISDS cases in each of the last five years than in the first three decades of the ISDS system combined, and that more than half of all concluded cases have resulted in either settlement or loss for the government involved.

He was again criticised for seeking ratification of the TPP without a proper, independent cost-benefit examination of the deal and its impacts on Australians.

The agreement will now be examined by parliamentary committees. The Joint Standing Committee on Treaties will be receiving submissions until the 11th of March.
