Does the Public Guardian act ethically?

OPG Fact sheet headers[Opinion]

The Australian | Digital Print Edition - The Weekend Australian - 13 Jun 2015 - Page #2Since winning government unexpectedly, the Qld Labor Government has been advertising Departmental Head’s jobs in all ministerial PORTFOLIOS.

The position of Public Guardian is one of these. The Attorney General, Ms Yvette D’Ath, has advertised the Guardian’s position. It is interesting to note that a departmental Director General gets about $450,000 per annum. According to the advertisement (pictured) the Public Guardian gets $260,000.

The question is how do the candidates for these positions measure up under ethical standards?

s 6 of PUBLIC SECTOR ETHICS ACT 1994 requires that the Public Guardian:

‘ … accept and value their duty to provide advice which is objective, independent, apolitical and impartial’

Does the minister care about ethics, especially after the Public Guardian’s decision to abduct and place Ross in mandatory detention in a remote ‘high care’ facility?

Has Kevin Martin been asked to apply for his own job?
