MEDIA RELEASE: SENATOR CULLETON SAVES AUSTRALIA FROM A CLAYTONS ROYAL COMMISSION
Pauline Hanson’s One Nation Senator Rodney Culleton from Western Australia, at the 11th hour, has saved Australia from what he describes as a ‘claytons Royal Commission’ through a cheeky tactic he threw into the Senate chamber.
Last Wednesday, Leader of the Opposition in the Senate, Senator Penny Wong, moved a motion to request a Royal Commission into the banking sector but Senator Culleton believes that the Royal Commission into banks only, would see that they pass the blame onto others, resulting in no action and a huge waste of tax payers’ money.
Senator Culleton said, “This week in Parliament, I threw the burly into the water and requested to seek leave to broaden the Royal Commission to include, banks, their agents, receivers, property valuers and real estate agents, so that all affiliated parties are thoroughly investigated.”
“My leave was denied but I give my thanks to Senator Xenophon who picked up on my amendments and he successfully asked for the motion to be set aside, to be heard the following day. Senator Xenophon then came to my office and we filled out the necessary paperwork.”
“Being new in my role as a Senator, I am still learning how the wheels turn in Parliament but most importantly, from my discussions with other Members of Parliament, I understand and believe that even if ninety-nine per cent of members vote for a Royal Commission, it is up to the full discretion of the Prime Minister as to whether he instructs one as he holds the executive powers.”
“Mr Turnbull, and the Liberal National Party have made it quite clear that they are not interested in bringing the banking sector to justice and I am utterly disappointed in Nationals member George Christensen who watered down the proposed legislation into a talk fest.”
“Mr Christensen’s pre-election promise was to enact the Royal Commission, but instead he has turned his back on his constituents of Dawson. I would like to ask Mr Christensen whether his newly appointed position of party whip, with its pay rise, swayed his stance on the Royal Commission?”
“In light of finding out that a Royal Commission had a high chance of being killed off by the Prime Minister, I have looked into a robust alternative vehicle for an inquiry, one that has steel teeth that would draw blood just with a smile.”
Senator Culleton has discussed with Assistant Treasurer Kelly O’Dwyer , his alternative to the government’s inquiry into the mistreatment of small business customers by banks. “Ms O’Dwyer has said that she would be very happy to have me on the committee as I had first hand experience on the matter,” he said.
“I told Ms O’Dwyer that I would take up the offer to be involved but that I would also be setting up my own high-calibre committee to oversee the banking Ombudsman and the Parliamentary Committee. My committee would include the people who have played a massive part in the push for a Royal Commission, including some of the bank victims.”
“With the Dempsey report, we can play a part in the terms of reference that would be required in the inquiry and by fashioned right, this will give the same outcome as a Royal Commission with the same powers; to whereby anyone or corporation must give full discovery if called upon by the Senate committee.”
“I have been informed that the powers of this new committee will give people immediate relief and a moratorium put on all property, small business, farming foreclosures, or even the repossession of their family home; anyone who is being attacked by their financier.”
Senator Culleton has stressed that should this new committee be insufficient in bringing the banking sector to justice, that he will put pressure on the government and the Prime Minister for a full blown Royal Commission.
“The public must be aware that even though many of them voted for a Royal Commission, that the Prime Minister has the power to ignore their request. I ask people to be aware of that when they next go to the polls. If I am not satisfied with the outcome of the banking inquiry and terms of reference, I will be calling on Mr Turnbull to start the Royal Commission or to step aside.”
“This is a win for the Australian people, a win for those who have lost everything at the hands of the banks, a win for those whose family members have taken their lives out of despair and a win for all who want what is right.”
“Until we get our banking system under control, Australia and Australians cannot prosper.”
“Pauline Hanson has always stood up for what is right, and so am I. I am proud to be on her team,” Senator Culleton said.

“After losing my cases over and over, LSBC Insiders whispered to go to VCAT, the FBI and the US SEC. That was how deeply troubled the Legal Services Board and Commission people were. Who would think to call the FBI!? I thought they were insane. I did anyway. I am registered with a group at the SEC and the SEC might pay a reward if the Banks are fined. They spoke to other people about my case even though the LSBC is liable for damages if they blow the whistle or talk to the wrong people. (I estimate that I am entitled to over $3mill.)”
“Soon afterwards, Channel 7 News said a tip off last year caused audits and arrests of bank executives. (I think the tip off was from the LSBC whistleblowers to the SEC Witnesses).
The FBI wanted the Hush Deed. Inquiries were made by

Did Howard Bowles screw up his Tom Courtneys, Joneses and the Court's Mr. Courtney? His cases went on the tellie too. Are his board liable under "Part 7"?
“The LSBC told me to go away despite damning evidence and despite the FBI arresting people. You would think the LSBC might see a few ethics issues if banks executives are arrested over the same Hush Deed they said was legal and ethical"

Is OLSC the right department?
Subject: complaint about the Commonwealth Bank's due diligence lawyers, CBA Lawyer David Cohen and the hampering of criminal investigations by cybercrime and fraud police at Federal Police and the FBI.
Dear Legal Services Ombudsman of NSW
I am one of many Australians who pushed hard to get a Royal Commission into banking and into the hijacking of our justice system. As one of many voters I am continually appalled at what lawyers for banks get away with.
I ask that you urgently investigate Michael Mcgarvie, his Victorian Legal Services Board's lawyers, and Commonwealth Bank Lawyer David Cohen.
For years Whistleblowers told the American "Office of the Whistleblower" that Ian Narev knew all about the bribes BEFORE the arrests of Bank Computer Executives in March 2015.
As thouands of people knew, the legal services ethics lawyers were in an extraordinary coverup according to Submission 116 to the PJC inquiry and Submission 2 at the Foreign Bribery Inquiry.
On 4th April this year, David Cohen, the lawyer for Ian Narev CEO of the CBA Bank, finally testified at the PJC Inquiry that Ian Narev and his "Due Diligence" lawyers really did know about the international bribery that affected computer contracts.
He said they did nothing until AFTER the FBI and Australian Police arrested bank executives for bribery a year ago.
Please investigate if the lawyers 'covered up' the bribery and then hindered investigators, like Commander Linda Champion, with a cover up by the legal ethics board. The internet is full of claims that the ethics lawyers 'spied' on witnesses for the FBI's side on the international bribery.
Please investigate if the hinderers include the lawyers in Michael McGarvie's "legal ethics board".
I also want compensation, say $100,000. The Whistleblowers' Submitters to the Foreign Bribery Inquiry is the Supportive Residents & Carers Action Group Inc. It reported our members' concerns to the American Security & Exchange Commission Office of the Whistleblower BEFORE the arrests of the Bank bribery executives Jon Waldron and Keith Hunter. The Legal Services Board passed our information on to scoundrals and, as a result, banks and shareholders and victims should be compensated, like me, for breaching our rights to confidentiality and privacy.
Also, because it later tried to cover up for the bank, it tried to hamper investigations by Commander Linda Champion and by the FBI. By hampering our chance of obtaining a Reward from the Office of the Whistleblower, I think I deserve compensation.
Because the Reward can be as much as 30% of the Fine that US Regulators put on global banks like the CBA. I take exception to "ethics lawyers" who interfere in Reward Programs and try to shut down investigations by FBI and Federal Police, and try to ruin our people's chances of getting a Reward.
Please ask the Victorian Services Board for compensation.
Australian Federal Police ramp up corporate bribery investigations

The Australian Federal Police are ramping up their investigations into Australian companies paying bribes to foreign officials, with a "good handful" of prosecutions in the pipeline and investigations into CIMIC, formerly known as Leighton Holdings, and BHP Billiton ongoing.
Commander Linda Champion, manager of the AFP's Fraud and Anti-Corruption Centre, has warned companies which have breached the rules on foreign bribery that if they come forward they could forestall more painful investigations.
The foreign bribery crackdown is part of a broader blitz on white-collar crime, following the Fraud and Anti-Corruption Centre's successful prosecution of National Australia Bank's inside trader and a host of high-profile scandals which have engulfed big business, including claims of dirty money at Tabcorp, an immigration racket within Australia Post, allegations of misconduct at IOOF, bribery charges against IT executives at CBA, the Libor rate-rigging scandal and the ongoing financial planning debacle.
"You will see, over the next 12 months or so, some matters hopefully go to prosecution stage, which will send a very strong message that we are taking this [foreign bribery] crime very seriously and enforcing the legislation," Commander Champion told The Australian Financial Review in her first major interview as head of the AFP's white-collar crime unit.
"We want to show we are very serious about this, we want to enforce it, we do want to see some good prosecutions for those who deserve it, but at the same time we do want to reach out our hand and say that if you do come forward, we will do the best that we can to achieve the best outcome for you as a company and your shareholders," she said.
Despite a lack of convictions for foreign bribery, the AFP's prosecutions arising from the Securency banknote-printing scandal continue in the Victorian courts under a cloak of suppression orders and, in March, the AFP launched prosecutions against three employees of construction company Lifese amid allegations of attempting to bribe a foreign public official in Iraq.
The Senate committee on economics has launched an inquiry into allegations of Australian companies paying bribes to foreign officials and is expected to grill former executives from BHP Billiton and Leighton.
New laws are being debated in Parliament to lower the bar for prosecutions and increase penalties for foreign bribery offences, although a controversial defence for "facilitation payments", or "tea money", remains.
Taskforce fast-tracking inquiries
The AFP's Fraud and Anti-Corruption Centre – a multi-agency unit hosted in co-operation with the Australian Taxation Office, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission, the Australian Crime Commission, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service and key federal government departments – was formally established just over a year ago in response to a scathing report into foreign bribery by the OECD in 2012.
The latest OECD report card, released in April, noted "significant improvements" in foreign bribery enforcement and gave Australia a "pass mark", but still identified a number of areas of concern, including the need for a structured form of plea-bargaining and enhanced private sector whistleblower protections. It also criticised the facilitation payment defence which allows small sums to be paid to obtain routine government services.
Commander Champion said the establishment of the International Foreign Bribery Taskforce meant enforcement agencies overseas were "sharing information on an informal level", which was fast-tracking long-running foreign bribery investigations.
"We started ramping up our efforts towards foreign bribery a couple of years ago and now we are starting to see the fruits of that – understanding the crime type better, sharing more information through overseas agencies, and the legal processes – and now we've got some healthy investigations under way to get some real momentum in that area," Commander Champion said.
She urged multinational companies to come forward and disclose their potential concerns to the AFP, after both the RBA and Leighton came under fire for calling in independent experts to make an assessment of potential breaches, rather than reporting the matters to police.
Leighton, which changed its name to CIMIC in April, is facing allegations that it was involved in the alleged payment of tens of millions of dollars in bribes to win a $750 million oil pipeline contract in Iraq, and BHP Billiton is being investigated over allegedly improper payments and gifts given by the firm in Cambodia and as part of its sponsorship of the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
"If they suspect wrongdoing, companies will often engage in their own line of inquiries, but once they realise there are possible criminal acts, it is best they consult with us and then we will work with them," Commander Champion said.
"We might ask them to make some more inquiries on our behalf, or we might come in to do those inquiries to search material electronically or otherwise, but at least it is open or transparent.
"We ask companies to err on the side of caution and come to us, because we can help direct their inquiries. What we are always worried about is if they start interviewing witnesses or suspects and they don't have the right caution provisions, so preserving evidence is key, and also once they start making inquiries and word gets out, there is always the possible destruction of evidence. If the company genuinely wants to stamp it out, then talk to us first."
Commander Champion said the AFP could not offer companies immunity, but their co-operation would be taken into account by prosecutors and the court.

Barristers ‘not up to the job’
INCOMPETENT and poorly trained barristers are denying their clients justice, according to a former Supreme Court judge.
George Hampel, QC, said some barristers were so bad, their short-comings would open them to negligence lawsuits if they didn’t have immunity from being sued.
The Monash University law professor said every state Bar should rigorously assess a lawyer’s competence before allowing them to work as barristers.
“The overall quality of barristers in Australia is good, but a significant minority … do not have sufficient skills and should not be representing clients.” he said.
“Judges are constantly reporting cases of barristers showing insufficient preparation, legal research, knowledge of basic case law, legislation and advocacy skills.
“Ultimately, the people who suffer are clients, who face a serious risk of injustice.”
He called on the legal profession to enforce better training and assessment of potential barristers.
Prof Hampel was on the Supreme Court bench from 1983 to 2000 and presided over a number of high profile criminal cases, including the plea and sentencing of the Hoddle St mass killer, Julian Knight.
He was a barrister for 25 years before becoming a judge.
His views caused surprise at the Victorian Bar.
Council chairman Peter Riordan, SC, said incompetent barristers would not get work.
He said barristers were briefed by solicitors and were under constant scrutiny as they did their work in open courts.
“If you don’t do a good job, you don’t get briefed again,” Mr Riordan said.
“The client has a solicitor and the solicitor knows who the right barristers are for the job.
“We have people who leave the Bar every year because its a competitive environment.”
Mr Riordan said he expected a national system
of training and exams for barristers to be introduced next year.
You can download a printer friendly copy of the original @TheHeraldSun news article “Barristers ‘not up to the job’”, here.
Of course, it is not just the “clients” of Barristers who are not up to the job that suffer. More than likely, as I discovered to my own personal horror and have seen multiple times since, it is the “unrepresented” or “self-represented” litigants who are more likely to suffer injustice at the hands of lawyers against them, lawyers who ‘are not up to the job’ skills wise, ethics wise or judgement wise. And the “unrepresented” or “self-represented litigant, he or she who can’t afford a lawyer and whom the State refuses to give one, likely to find that the judge is more likely to be aiding and abetting their lawyer mates at the court than caring about the rights or justice entitlements of some total stranger litigant whom none of those lawyers have seen before or are likely to ever see again. After all, the solicitors, the barristers, the judge, they share a workplace, and probably share/d a university class, a high school, a post code, and possibly multiple relatives – either by blood or marriage, or both, just like all their parents probably did share those things, before them, and their parents’ parents before that, and so on, all the way back up the begatting tree).
Yes, I was stripped clean, and then stripped some more, by the worst sorts of throat cutting riverboat pirates dressed up as lawyers, brandishing legal credentials and fraudulently written up legal writs – lying claims without a skerrick of evidence collected first, after, or even at all, to back up any of the false claims. And mountains of evidence and illegalities to refute them (including police apprehensions and judicial findings of aggravated burglary (to steal and destroy evidence) and perjuries and other lies by the emotionally and mentally ill false claimant.
These initial raiders even accredited specialists at what they do by that den of injustice and corruption known as the Law Institute of Victoria Limited ACN (the statutory authority of the same name was abolished, and even the use of the name “Law Institute of Victoria” was, er, outlawed, by the Kennett Government in Victoria in the late 1990s (an amazing political achievement and unprecedented public service by then Premier Jeff Kennett and his men), only for the lawyerocracy to be renewed, and reinvigorated, and even handed back the “Law Institute of Victoria” moniker, by the corrupt Bracks-Brumby-Hulls Labor Victorian administration in the middle of their decade of reign of abysmal government corrupt and failure: click here for more information.
And on the ‘birds of a feather flock together’ principle (“noscitor associas” as per the Latin legal maxim familiar to lawyers, B-grade vampires and Hogswart students) what about the situation where the solicitor briefing the barrister is not up to the job either (a far from unusual occurence)? And just to complete the unholy trinity, what about the situation (common in family law cases) where the third kind of lawyer in the mix, the judge, is ‘not up to the job’ either? Perhaps that explains why there are few repeat clients for family law clients (Australia’s family law courts are a notorious warren of barratry, champetry and maintenance, of theft, death and destruction), and no incentive for barrister, nor solicitor, nor judge to keep the customer happy (quite the opposite incentive system in fact, even without factoring in the incentives created by the government’s lopsided $4 billion per annum of taxpayer funds pumped into the family law courts, and its family lawyers pockets – the equivalent of $40,000 per family every year that is processed by that corrupt, unconstitutional, killer institution. And the suggestion that any part of the legal industry is competitive (ie low barriers to entry, easy and low cost access, and well informed, evenly matched buyers and sellers – bit a sly piece of misleading and deceptive misstatment there, by the then Chair of the Victorian Bar Association, Mr Peter Riordan, if the suggestion weren’t so laughably too absurb to be taken seriously by anybody with an ounce or two of intellect).
As to how far, how often, and how unaccountably lawyers (solicitors, barristers, judges) can let you down … more about this at the Lawyerocracy on Trial Hearings, 55 King Street Melbourne (the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal), beginning at 10.00 am on 21 May 2012 – click here for more information.
