*Why* is our NZ government shockingly failing to protect Dr Anne-Marie Brady? Peter Hatcher, Sydney Morning Herald
What are you all doing, our elected representatives, to address this disgraceful situation?
No longer safe: Researcher harassed by China in her own country … Peter Hatcher … Sydney Morning Herald
What has happened to this country when a scholar of the calibre of Dr Anne-Mare Brady, well-known and well-respected internationally, is, together with her family being threatened, her home and office broken into, with pressure on the University of Canterbury to sack her – even having her car tampered with – all very obviously because of Communist Chinese annoyance – with our coalition government, headed by the caring Jacinda Ardern and a greatly changed Winston Peters apparently indifferent to what is happening – being offered no public support whatever?
Remember the shocking incident of Chris Finlayson, former Minister in charge of the SIS (our Security Intelligence Services) rubbishing Anne-Marie’s warnings about what was happening in this country – because of the well-targeted penetration of Communist Chinese influence? Disgraceful.
If the SIS itself behaves in such a cavalier fashion when it comes to the protection of a very important and brave New Zealander, then this country has become a basket case.
Many have been arguing this for some time – on by no means negligible evidence.
Where is there one single member of Parliament taking urgency on this issue, raising well overdue questions about why this is happening – and why an official protest has not been made to the Chinese Embassy?
Why are you MPs not asking why Dr Brady is not being offered the highest possible protection?
Why do you apparently consider it acceptable that she is no longer safe – and that her overseas colleagues are now being harassed?
Let’s have some answers from you…
