I'm not sure we're speaking of the same thing.
In my post above, I was referring to general conspiracy, as when (in this instance) a minor public servant ( ' A' ) engages in corrupt activity,
related to either the workplace or his private life.
If 'A' fears his corrupt activities may subject him to legal or other penalty, he seeks the cooperation of his lowly public-service peers. Most of
them began working for government departments at 13 or 14 and have risen (like the proverbial cream and #e) to senior levels, simply by virtue of
turning up day after day for 35 years. In order to protect themselves and/or their career against legal or other penalty, the by now small group of
minor-level public servants assist 'A' by corrupting process AND the legislation they're paid to uphold.
If the complainant still refuses to capitulate, the corrupt group will then seek the cooperation of more senior public servants.
All the way through, they are shredding incriminating documents, falsifying others, conspiring left and right within departments and in the private
sector, etc. It's amazing how many lawyers will assist in government corruption, in expectation the favour will later be rewarded in some form or
Finally, the matter may come to the attention of departmental heads and/or the Minister of the Department in question, at which point it is deemed
'clever and prudent ' to engage in outright corruption via means of corruptly held 'tribunals', or via the engagement of slime solicitors who in
turn will schedule 'mediation', 'adjudication' etc. They then fail to attend and claim the complainant has made a 'mistake' regarding the
date. The complainant will be informed that due to his 'failure' to attend, the department was compelled to hand down a decision that found against
the complainant and against which the complainant may not appeal. Big Ha Ha all round.
Should the complainant take the matter to Opposition MPs, the MP in question will invariably talk up a storm ...... and do nothing.
Usually, the complainant has provided the MP with all possible documentation and proof --- which the MP will swiftly make available to the corrupt
government department in question (again, ' I scratch your back and ... )
Should the complainant take the matter to the media, the scandal will be simply ignored, again and again.
If in desperation the complainant takes this convoluted mess of evidence to the State Ombudsman's Office, his submission will be returned to him,
stamped with the Ombudsman's seal and accompanied by a letter advising the complainant that the Ombudsman has --- after (laugh) consideration --
decided the corrupt department has no case to answer. Most Ombudsman drones are seeded by the very government departments they will be required to
'investigate' under the auspices of the Ombudsman.
Exhausted, the complainant may add the Ombudsmans' corruption to the rest and send the lot to the Independent Commission Against Corruption. Again,
his submission will be returned to him with the advice the Commission has decided the corrupt government department has no case to answer. (The ICAC
is in fact a private organisation that pretends to investigate the government that pays it).
And that's the end of the road.
Little croooks enjoy privileged position within monolithic, corrupt government departments who claim the right and power to 'investigate' themselves
and find themselves 'innocent'.
People have killed themselves because of situations such as described above.
Nothing happens to the guilty and the victims of this sort of corruption simply moulder in their graves as life goes on as usual above them.
For numerous examples of the situation in Australia (government inaction/involvement in pedophilia, murder, embezzlement, etc) see Gaiaguys website.
It's an eye-opener !
