ABC’s Four Corners to play role in Christine Holgate mediations
Australia Post has agreed to mediate with the sacked CEO Christine holgate. But a month and a half after doing so, and nearly two months after Holgate threatened to sue if she was not engaged, the two sides have yet to officially begin the process.
Holgate Lawyers (its featured legal team includes Rebecca Giles and eminent lawyer Arthur Moses) met the directors of Australia Post Tony nutt and Jan West for premediation. And after a lot of delay (the exact instigators of which change depending on who you ask), those involved expect it to happen in mid-July.
This would have the effect that the parties do not sit down formally until they have seen the Four corners episode in the tawdry saga, which is scheduled for next Monday.
After initially declining all media requests ahead of his successful appearance before a Senate inquiry, Holgate gave the program a lengthy interview. Just like the Minister of Communication Paul Fletcher and Chief Executive Officer of the Authorized Post Office Group Angela Crampe. Australia Post is also said to have cooperated.
Judging by his questions, an angle known to have been considered by Four corners journalist Michael brissenden is the support given to Holgate by the Australian Citizens Party (formerly the Citizens Electoral Group), a fringe political movement founded by an unsavory American politician and conspiracy theorist Lyndon LaRouche. This association has already been explored in the Senate. As well as everything else to do with the Rolex affair and its consequences.
