Govts failed to act against bushfires court told


A judge has told two of Australia’s highest court judges to dismiss three defamation claims by Aboriginal leaders accusing government agencies of failure to intervene to stop destructive bushfires in New South Wales.

In a judgment released today in the federal Court of Australian Capital Territory, Justice John McLennan said federal environment minister Greg Hunt and his department had failed to act against the catastrophic Tasmanian bushfires in 2013.

Just서산출장마사지ice McLennan found the bushfires were due to a mix of factors and therefore a review of environmental laws was the best possible answer.

He also rejected a claim that Justice Hunt personally caused the fires that triggered the 2013 fires.

Justice McLennan found Hunt had been negligent in failing to put the Australian Forest Fire Council’s resources into better control of the Tasmanian fires.

He described some state and territory governments as “blatantly irresponsible”.

“A key problem is to take account of the risks posed by people who do not understand how environmental laws work and what environmental laws mean,” Justice McLennan said.

“They simply do not realise what is involved in protecting nature.”

The court found the bushfires that destroyed the lives of nearly 1,500 people at the height of the blazes took place in areas where the ACT and NSW had not imposed fire restrictions.

In one of the judgments, Justice McLennan said the federal Environment Protection Authority and the state environment ministry had both acknowledged they had failed to implement “clear bushfire action” in the states because of a lack of funds.

Justice McLennan also rejected a claim by Indigenous leaders 007카지노that federal environment minister Greg Hunt was responsible for the destruction of the endangered Great Barrier Reef during the bushfires in 2013.

This was because the NSW government was unable to impose fire restrictions at the time of the fires, Justice McLennan said.

Justice McLennan said the federal government had a role to play in environmental law 카지노reform.

“We cannot ignore this problem and accept our responsibility for the consequences of inaction and failure.

“These are the sort of things which a government of the people, by the people and for the people can remedy, it’s the kind of thing we can do,” Justice McLennan said.
