With his biased, racist statements, Mr Rann is 'stirring the pot of ethnic tension in Australia, in the most dangerous way'.

This is very depressing news if true........ maybe another large protest by macedonian Australians is whats needed so that this worm doesnt get off the hook easily?

What ever happened to that fellow from adelaide who was boasting that he was going to "toast" Rann and punish him? Wasnt Meto going to interview him as well? Seems like a huge failure from this character, no wonder he doesnt post here anymore.

What did you do to help this prosecution of Mr Rann? Look at yourself before you speak about others...

The UMD and their lackeys here like MP_MK did jack to help this situation. Buktop, don't complain or whinge when you're labelled a UMD apologist, your above comment and involvement clearly proves it.

Buktop,

Firstly, we have a well respected Australian-based organisation to handle these matters on our behalf.

Secondly, unlike MP and Meto, BBS did not claim to have designed a grand strategy to bring Rann to account for his remarks against the Macedonian community or provide media interviews to feed his own delusions of grandeur. So the question remains, what did Meto and his local cheerleaders achieve other than a pathetic attempt to gain some ‘street credibility’ for UMD among Australian Macedonians immediately prior to his tour down under?

Absolutely nothing.

I'm sorry SoM, but AMHRC claimed that they had the situation and the case under control, don't come at me or anyone else for the failure in the Australian justice system...

I never complained I asked questions, and when results weren't achieved, I asked even further questions, I don't immediately go to blame...

According to AMHRC

Quote:
We received an email this morning from our case manager at the Australian Human Rights Commission, explaining that the AHRC has not yet made a decision in regard to our complaint against Rann. Therefore we are at a loss when trying to understand the article in "The Australian".

If we hear any further news, we shall make it available.
So we don't know what the real situation is yet, but I would prefer these bullshit accusations be kept at a minimum until such serious evidence is provided.

And once again, do we have a full written decision from the Judge in the case?

Well if the article happens to be true, AMHRC didn't achieve anything did they? They boasted of taking him to court and what? So they are in the same boat as MP_MK and anyone else who tried to help prosecute Rann...

I want more evidence, I want to see the full decision from the judge. Quite frankly I don't believe the newspapers, but if this is true, then you have no right to even talk about the situation because you did jack shit to rectify it.

The AMHRC are managing the situation and I am sure when they're ready they will advise us of any developments. I don't believe a word of this article until it is confirmed 100%.

What does that have to do with your tirade against BBS? Nothing. You entered this discussion to defend the UMD, that's your sole purpose. And it's pathetic.

In the interim gentlemen, I have written to the Australian Human Rights Commission seeking clarification on the matter. I urge all Macedonian Australians to do the same.

[email protected]
Hello, I noticed this online article today:

http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news...-1225885416372
"SOUTH Australian Premier Mike Rann has been cleared of racially vilifying the people of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia.

The Human Rights Commission found Mr Rann had no case to answer for claiming the Macedonian state was stealing Greek history and culture, an accusation the Premier made in a speech at a Greek festival in Adelaide last year. In the speech, Mr Rann also accused Macedonian President Gjorge Ivanov of "stirring up trouble in a most dangerous way" with Greece.

The comments sparked a complaint to the HRC by South Australia's Macedonian community but judge Catherine Branson ruled it to be "lacking in substance".

Mr Rann said he abhorred racism and his criticisms were directed at the policies of the Ivanov government, not Macedonians.

"I stand on my record of racial and ethnic tolerance. I will not be intimidated by anyone from speaking forthrightly on behalf of historical truth," Mr Rann said."








It suggests a decision has been made by the Australian Human Rights Commission in relation to Premier Rann's attacks on the Macedonian communities of Australia.

Has a ruling or judgement indeed been issued by the AHRC and is it available for public review? If no ruling has been issued, how can such public statements be made by the Premier?
