Mrs Well Credentialed Lawyer has been asking questions again
Well Credentialed Lawyer has been at it again.
Thanks to one of your recent contributors I recently discovered the attached most informative interview of Terry O'Connor QC by a very well researched interviewer, Luke Grant of 2GB. the interview was made the day Mr O'Connor's article was published in The Australian. It only goes for 6 minutes and is well worth listening to for a summary in a nut shell as to why Mr O'Connor said in his newspaper article that our Prime Minister has a prima facie case to answer for in relation to her role in the AWU WRA Scandal. In Mr O'Connor's case, the power of the spoken word even exceeds the power of the written word.
Just to paraphrase, Mr O'Connor says that the specific allegation which could be made against Julia Gillard, in the absence of any better explanation from her, is that she prepared rules for the incorporation of the association which she knew did not contain the true purpose of the association and in assisting the applicant of the incorporation, Ralph Blewitt, she was thereby potentially exposed to whatever offence Ralph Blewitt might be found guilty of. Mr O'Connor said he based his comments solely on what Julia Gillard herself said to her partners about her knowledge of the slush fund and her role in preparing the rules and objectives of the association. Mr O'Connor said that there may be some reasonable explanation for her actions but so far her response to legitimate questions has either been abusive or the questions have been deflected.
Mrs WCL overheard this recording as I was playing it and said "Wow, who's that? He sounds excellent. When was that recorded? Why hasn't that sort of interview been played before down here in Melbourne?" I complimented her on her excellent questions and suggested she might like to ask Jon Faine and his supporter Chris Uhlmann. She asked me to ask you whether you would be able to do so on her behalf?
Mr and Mrs WCL
