Spot the Difference between these two responses
Attempt to spot the difference between these two letters of reply from the Hon. Senator Christopher Evans’ ministerial office. Both letters were responses from separate complaints to the minister’s office alleging abuses by the CSIRO of its privileged status and violations of its model litigant obligations under the Legal Services Directive (2005) in relation to two separate judicial cases.
Obviously, Minister Evans is not too concerned about the waste of many millions of dollars in Tax Payer funds being spent by Federal Agencies under his jurisdiction. This is a slap in the face for the many Australian’s struggling in the current economic climate, particularly those previously in the service of the Australian Government whose positions have been shed as a result of ongoing productivity targets.
In many cases, the cost of litigation far exceeds the cost of amicably settling the issues at the outset.
Shedding the positions of those highly paid individuals who chose so blatantly to waste our hard-earned dollars seems to be a much better value proposition.
The Attorney-General’s department seems to be somewhat tight-lipped on these issues.
More will be published in a future posting exposing some of the dodgy legal tactics engaged in by the CSIRO in trying to avoid the responsibility of its lawful obligations.
