Many people in control or in key positions in the Commonwealth Department of Health in administering the health care for Australians and Territorians of Papua New Guinea, the Commonwealth Serum Laboratories and the Australian Human Pituitary Hormone Program were directly involved in the activities described in these pages. Their dereliction of duty, their aiding and abetting, caused, and made possible, great harm inflicted upon the Australian people. In short it was criminal negligence.
This is paramount to organised crime with the organisations conspiring to collect pituitary glands illegally. Even today, decades later, the perpetrators seek to hide behind the confidential settlements made with victims families (five to date) without any admission of liability. This is not a private Company, it the Government and we are the principal shareholders. The Public have the right to judge the Government on its performance and the perpetrators must be brought to account.
The Crown Prosecutor is responsible for preventing activities of this nature from openly and freely occurring regardless of the political or financial ramifications and to fail to do so is to the detriment of all Australians and future generations.
