FORMER KATTER PARTY CANDIDATE TESS CORBETT TO FACE COURT ON “ CONTEMPT OF TRIBUNAL”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

14 August 2015

A former candidate from Bob Katter’s Australia Party who likened gays and lesbians to pedophiles during an interview on the campaign trail in the 2013 General Election has refused to comply with the Orders of the court and publish an apology pursuant to the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 in the Sydney Morning Herald.
Tess Corbett was Bob Katter’s candidate for the Victorian Seat of Wannon in the federal election until she stood down in January of 2013 after telling her local paper “ I don’t want gays , lesbians or pedophiles working in my kindergarten”.
“ If you don’t like it , go to another kindergarten , Ms.Corbett told the Hamilton Spectator.
When asked if she considered homosexuals to be in the same category as pedophiles , Ms.Corbett replied “ yes”.
“ Pedophiles will be next in line to be recognised in the same way as gays and lesbians and get rights, “ she said.
Anti-Discrimination Campaigner Garry Burns took the matter to the Anti-Discrimination Board , claiming her statement’s breached the Anti-Vilification Provisions of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 ( NSW ).
On Monday 17 August 2015 at 2pm a hearing will be held in the NSW Civil Administrative Tribunal ( NCAT ) ( Court 10.3 ) to determine if Ms.Corbett is in “contempt of the Tribunal” for refusing to publish an apology as ordered in the Sydney Morning Herald and to apologise to Mr.Burns.
The address of the hearing is :
NSW Civil Administrative Tribunal ( NCAT )
John Maddison Tower
Level 10 86-90 Goulburn Street
Sydney NSW 2000.
Mr.Burns said “ This was a creative settlement. It’s terms reflect my belief in the public interest in defending gay men and women’s rights to freedom from discrimination and vilification. If Ms.Corbett thinks she can avoid a court order and refuse to publish an apology in relation to her unlawful conduct she better think again because the hearing on Monday may well remind her she is not above the law”.
For highly distressing reasons , the Australian public at the present day is being made particularly aware of the serious and long -lasting psychological damage suffered by victims of pedophilia, “The Tribunal’s Deputy President Michael Chesterman said in his written decision.
 
“ At any time , and especially at this time , and pronouncement that “brackets”… homosexual people with pedophiles is capable of ….urging ( people ) to treat homosexuals as deserving to be hated or to be regarded with serious contempt”.
 
“ Ms.Corbett’s claims …. do not merely offend or insult : they incite these negative reactions”.

    If Luke Mc Kee is so concerned about court cases like this in Australia why doesn’t he attend court today and give Ms.Corbett his support in person.He won’t attend court because once he steps foot on Australian soil he will be arrested by NSW Police and sent to Silver water Correctional Centre. I hope he’s in a room full of pedophiles 🙂
