I have been approached a couple of times recently from overseas in relation to the appointment of former Australian judge and well-known bribe taker, Michael Francis Moore, as a judge at The Administrative Tribunal which is part of the International Labour Organisation in Geneva.
It is the same Michael Moore who is a former Federal Court of Australia judge who retired as nothing more than a joke in the courts in 2011. The same former judge who will highly likely get a start at the Royal Commission into unions given he was appointed by Bill Shorten as an administrator of the Health Services Union (HSU). As we know the HSU is one of the key focal points of the Royal Commission as they are mentioned in the terms of reference.
The reason I was approached is quite simple. It is because the people who are reliant on judgements from the International Labour Organisation (ILO) are concerned that one of judges (Mr Moore) has very serious allegations made against him that have gone unchallenged.
International Labour Organisation (ILO)
It says on Wikipedia “The International Labour Organization (ILO) is a United Nations agency dealing with labour issues, particularly international labour standards and decent work for all. 185 of the 193 UN member states are members of the ILO.”
“In 1969, the organization received the Nobel Peace Prize for improving peace among classes, pursuing justice for workers, and providing technical assistance to developing nations.”
“The ILO registers complaints against entities that are violating international rules; however, it does not impose sanctions on governments.” (Click here to read more)
The ILO website says “The ILO was created in 1919, as part of the Treaty of Versailles that ended World War I, to reflect the belief that universal and lasting peace can be accomplished only if it is based on social justice.” (Click here to read more)
and “The International Labour Organization (ILO) is devoted to promoting social justice and internationally recognized human and labour rights, pursuing its founding mission that labour peace is essential to prosperity. Today, the ILO helps advance the creation of decent work and the economic and working conditions that give working people and business people a stake in lasting peace, prosperity and progress.” (Click here to read more)
The Administrative Tribunal
In relation to Michael Moore’s position as a judge at the ILO “The Tribunal examines employment-related complaints from officials of the International Labour Office and of the other international organizations that have recognized its jurisdiction.”
“The Tribunal is composed of seven judges who must be of different nationalities, as was the case for the Administrative Tribunal of the League of Nations. They are appointed by the International Labour Conference on a recommendation of the Governing Body of the International Labour Office for a renewable period of 3 years.”
“The Tribunal meets twice a year, in spring and autumn, for a period of 3 weeks, at the headquarters of the ILO in Geneva. At each session it delivers approximately fifty judgments.” (Click here to read more)
On the ILO website it says the below about Mr Moore:
Mr Michael F. Moore (Australia)
Judge of the Court of Appeal of the Kingdom of Tonga
Former Judge of the Federal Court and of the Industrial Relations Court of Australia
Former Additional Judge of the Supreme Court of the Australian Capital Territory
If the ILO were to ask my advice I would say they should add things such as Mr Moore is one of the dirtiest, lying, conniving scoundrels to ever depart Australia’s shores.
I think it is embarrassing that someone like Moore has been appointed to a UN body as Australia’s representative.
Michael Moore is Bill Shorten’s and the Labor Party’s puppet
I have written about Justice Moore on this site a couple of times and of course he is the one I refer to on the cover of my book where I am holding the sign saying “Justice Moore Federal Court of Australia Takes Bribes”
Moore resigned as a judge of the Federal Court of Australia in July 2011. In February 2012 Bill Shorten appointed Moore and 2 other Labor boys to review the Fair Work Act which I wrote a post titled “Bill Shorten appoints two stooges to review the Fair Work Act.”
Then in June 2012 Bill Shorten had Moore appointed as administrator of the Health Services Union (HSU) and I wrote the post titled “Corrupt former judge appointed as administrator of the HSU East Branch by Justice Flick.”
Unknown to me at the time, in March 2012 Mr Moore was appointed as judge of The Administrative Tribunal at the ILO. The person who would have had responsibility for appointing Moore is Bill Shorten given he was the Minister for Workplace Relations at the time.
So lets recap and in order this time.
1. February 2012 Bill Shorten appoints Michael Moore to review the Fair Work Act
2. March 2012 Bill Shorten appoints Michael Moore as a judge of the The Administrative Tribunal at the ILO
3. June 2012 Bill Shorten appoints Michael Moore as the administrator of the Health Services Union (HSU).
Bill Shorten sure likes Michael Moore. Three cushy government appointments in 5 months. It is bad enough that Bill Shorten forced a corrupt fool like Michael Moore on the Australian public but Mr Shorten even had the arrogance to export the corrupt Mr Moore to Geneva so the whole world could get the treatment.
One of the amazing points is that Michael Moore did not even have the time to be Administrator of the HSU and a few days after his appointment they had to appoint at least 1 and I believe 2 assistant administrators to help Mr Moore. From what I hear Moore did bugger all work at the HSU except cover-up further corruption and send in his regular invoices to be paid for work he had not done. Bill Shorten knew Moore did not have time to do the job before he had him appointed. So the question that the Royal Commission into unions might want to ask is why did Bill Shorten appoint Moore in the first place?
And yes, there is more. Michael Moore has plenty of knowledge of the Julia Gillard – Bruce Wilson – AWU fraud and theft in the 1990’s. As regular readers would know the Gillard / Wilson /AWU is currently the subject of a police investigation and more importantly one of the areas that the Royal Commission into unions will be focusing on. I found this out when I was at the Federal Court NSW registry in December 2012 inspecting some of the AWU files. Those being the files that weren’t stolen.
I wrote in a post at the time in relation to the AWU fraud: “During the inspection of the files I came across a familiar name that has not been mentioned in the scandal as of yet. None other than the former federal court judge Michael Moore. The same man who gets a mention on the front cover of my book. In correspondence from Robert McClelland to his client Ian Cambridge on the 14th August 1995 he mentions that “In late February 1995 proceedings were commenced before His Honour Mr Justice Moore in the Industrial Relations Court of Australia alleging certain irregularities in respect of the establishment of the National Construction Branch” At the time Moore was also a Federal Court judge as he had been appointed as a judge in 1994. I have not been able to find any judgement by Justice Moore in relation to this either.” (Click here to read the full post)
For me the most important point to this post is that no matter who you are or where you are you will be brought to account. Michael Moore is up for re-appointment as a judge at the ILO in March 2015. By outing and highlighting him now I am sure he will not slip under the radar and the new federal government will make sure he is not given another 3 year term at the ILO.
