Northern Territory Shadow Attorney General John Elferink

Henderson’s State Of Fear

Chief Minister Henderson should immediately call off the Police investigation into the identity of the whistleblower that exposed the Government’s Secret Plan to introduce a boat registration scheme.

Shadow Attorney General, John Elferink, said the witch-hunt is symbolic of a desperate Government forced to intimidate the bureaucracy to cover up its lies.

“Paul Henderson is trying to create a state of fear within the public service because he has been exposed deceiving Territorians.” Mr. Elferink said.

“Last year he told delegates at an AFANT meeting he had no plans to introduce boat registration, however within months he was secretly trying to broker a deal to force a boat registration scheme on Territorians.”

“Instead of revealing his plans to the thousands of people who own and operate watercraft, he entered into secret negotiations with the Northern Land Council and kept the details of their talks hidden from the wider community.”

“As a result of this appalling deception a Public Servant felt compelled to expose the Government’s duplicity, and now that person is being hunted like a Common Criminal.” Mr. Elferink said.

“Tell the truth in the Northern Territory and the Labor Government will chase you down.”

“The Chief Minister should call off the Police investigation immediately and, while he’s at it, stop deceiving Territorians about significant backflips on Public Policy.” Mr. Elferink said.

Political Parties who have too much Power become corrupt. The Labor Party across Australia but especially in New South Wales and Victoria have been in office for so long think that they can do what they like and abuse and misuse Executive Authority.

The old saying that “Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely” could not be any closer to the mark today if it tried.

Editor Victor P Taffa has been hunted down and treated like a criminal by the Labor Party.
