A Minister can retire from politics, take up a position related to former portfolio and politicians acting in their own personal interest all while the Crimes Act limits public servants talking about matters of which they were aware during their employment. #APS #auspol
Whistleblower PID disclosures don't cover info about politicians, law enforcement mostly refers to another agency, privileges committee is set up to protect politicians. How can ordinary people counteract these failures in governance and accountability without breaking a law?
What about reports of political interference eg. #Helloworld contract incl input by a former polllie who is a large shareholder. Is there an ongoing investigation? It's up to agencies to refer to law enforcement ie. @AusFedPolice who should be able to investigate unhindered.
Under APS Code of Conduct reporting corruption is mandatory. How it plays out in practice is important. While there are incidents that can be handled in-house, major corruption should not be one of them. APS is supposed to be neutral not become a complicit partner in wrongdoing.
