So you visit the Head Office of The Department. And you take your own tape recorder. And you place it on the table.
And the Head Office Public Servant places his own tape recorder on the table, beside yours. And, while you are speaking about a particular group of the falsified records, the Head Office Public Servant fiddles anxiously with his tape recorder. Twice. And, later, when you listen to your own recording, you notice that there is a loud straining noise on your own tape while you were explaining that a witness has told you that this particular group of “official records” are entirely falsified.
And you wonder if the Head Office Public Servant could have paused his tape recorder while you were talking about these particular “official records”.
The Department eventually appoint an “independent investigator”.
And the Head Office Public Servant whose behaviour you have complained about to the CMC is given control of the “independent investigation”. The Head Office Public Servant tells the “independent investigator” that he is only allowed to “consider” the falsified documents that you have discovered on your official records. He is not allowed to consider your evidence that these “records” are extensively falsified. Nor is he allowed to consider the many “official records” that are still being refused to you under Freedom of Information.
He is only allowed to “consider” the falsified documents.
And, one year before the CMC receive a copy of the “external investigation” report, they declare your case “closed”.
And two years before fragments of the “external investigation” report are released to you under Freedom of Information, The Department “accept” the investigation report and write to you, declaring your case “closed”.
And, when you receive fragments of the Investigation Report under Freedom of Information, you realise that your disclosure has still not been investigated. And, when you write more protest letters, no public servant reads your protest letters because your case has been declared “closed”.
So you decide that you have to send your disclosure to somebody that you think really cannot be corrupt. The State Premier, maybe.
