Channel 9 ACA report kicked off by robmessenger.com short film
ACA ran a report on Tuesday 12th March 13 which examined claims of corruption and/or dysfunction in QLD's CMC by the decorated police hero Darren Hall (pictured above & below)
The ACA story was shot many months ago, before Xmas. And also before the extraordinary claims of CMC corruption and/or dysfunction were aired in QLD Parliament on the 7.3.13. For about 4 months we thought that ACA had been "got at " and the story killed off, because it was too embarrassing for the CMC and the Newman Government.
We're grateful that at least one national media organisation has decided to air the story.
ABC TV refused to touch Darren's story despite being provided with all the documents and facts last year. You'll have to ask them why they chose to ignore this matter. In our national broadcaster these days, compared with the Fitzgerald Inquirey "Moonlight State" era, there's not exactly the same editorial courage, integrity or will to expose corruption in QLD. As a former staff member of the ABC I'm disgusted by the behaviour of many of the senior journalists/presenters and also ABC board members.
The ACA report was shot after they watched the following short youtube film. This story, in combination with a long list of CMC bungles and highly questionable decisions, has the potential to force a Royal Commission into QLD's crime and misconduct watch dogs - CMC and PCMC - with broad terms of reference.
QLD's Premier Newman cannot keep up his extraordinary public attacks on the integrity and ability of the CMC with out offering to remedy the problem by establishing a Royal Commission with a wide scope of reference in to political corruption.
The CMC's and PCMC's failed roles in detecting corruption and crime in a number of matters, not just the release of Fitzgerald documents should be the subject of a Royal Commission.
Mr Newman's proposed inquiry with narrow terms of reference is a joke, considering he's described the CMC parliamentary oversight body (PCMC) as a "Lap Dog" rather than a "Watch Dog." If the Premier of QLD is going to use strong language like that, he better back it up with strong action, not the half hearted response he and his Attorney General are suggesting.
Otherwise people will rightly ask, what have you and your LNP party got to cover up Premier?
Crime watchdog denies natural justice to police hero.
After more than 3 years a decorated police hero Darren Hall, still fights to clear his name. QLD's Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) tabled a report (Dangerous Liaisons June 2009) in QLD parliament which suggested that Darren and 24 other police officers were corrupt.
Darren says that 2 of those police officers named in the CMC report have committed suicide and that the tabling of the report in QLD parliament under privilege, played a part in their deaths.
Darren says that the CMC never interviewed him before writing and tabling their damaging report, consequently denying him Natural Justice. To date (10.3.13) the CMC refuse to speak with Darren. It has been 6 months since the CMC Chair received the latest in a long line of letters from Darren asking for an explanation, but they still refuse to offer any explanation.
The CMC took the words of a convicted murderer and criminal and destroyed the distinguished career of a QLD police officer who, while his daughter watched, took down an armed robber on his day off.
