Struggle of Peter Markan of Queensland Australia as described by Peter Markan himself
“I should call myself – REFUSENIK – the person refused fair trial and in the most blatant way having my human rights abused by Queensland legal system.
The struggle for justice which I am pursuing became the classical case of the fight against the perfidy of the people in the legal system ( Queensland , Australia ) where all elements – police , prosecution , trial judge and the defence lawyers – cooperate to achieve the conviction in the hassle-free way and then the supervisory ( judicial ) bodies rubber stamp their achievement.
That happens within the legal system claiming to have allegedly superior mechanisms to achieve the fair trial and with the ‘honesty ‘ , ‘fairness’ , ‘justice’ , ‘openness’ , ‘legitimacy’ , ‘respect for human rights’ , ‘respect for civil rights’ .
However , the definitions of the above and the compliance is determined by the same people who make the decisions – so , as it would be expected , grey matters are whitewashed ; blunders are covered up ; lies , mistakes and errors are concealed.
My experience shows how easy it is for the people within the state apparatus to persecute persons they do not like , with the tacit approval of ALL elements of the legal system happily , almost with malicious pleasure , pretending that they do not see it happening .
Furthermore they close ranks helping each other when trying to cover up the perfidy of the initial perpetrators , obeying their own code of silence and in effect disclosing the abyss of the corruption , depravity and rottenness of the whole system .
No sense of shame , no moral restraints , no hesitation , no reflection or regret of doing something what is morally and legally wrong .
They are not interested how to remedy a wrong done to another human being but how to protect the wrong doers by inventing some crafty phrases which obscure the truth and imply that all is in perfect order.
With the harangues of phrases about ‘ community safety ‘ they are protecting those who actually threaten that community safety and allowing unconvicted yet criminals in own ranks to continue their hideous , criminal conduct .
This mindless cruelty is done by fellow Australians working within the structures called ‘ democratic institutions ‘ supposedly having the duty of care .
That happens in spite of claimed existence of checks and balances , in spite of allegedly open , fair , transparent legal system existing in Queensland .
The legal system which instead of protecting the society from criminals is harbouring criminal elements within itself .
Possibly , because the legal industry is so convinced about their self importance (by manipulative and often brutally violent controlling of many aspects of the community life) and full of disrespect towards the rest of the society .
Disproportionate influence , looking at their contribution to the prosperity and well being breeds endemic arrogance so characteristic in the legal industry and the culture of avoidance of the unpleasant truth .
There seems to be attitude among lawyers to avoid presentation of issues which could potentially embarrass a trial judge or Department of Public Prosecution or are against the dogmas propagated as unchangeable truths .
By tacit mutual agreement lawyers do not criticize judges and judges do not criticise lawyers and it became a society of mutual adoration and not a genuine and fair legal system .
There are also matters of moral standing , honesty and integrity and easiness with which an injustice can be committed in this legal system , with evident eagerness to destroy human life.
There is hypocrisy second only to arrogance of certain people .
I have been denied protection by the law . Instead I have been persecuted using the law as convenient tool for people with criminal tendencies in state apparatus .
It is a difficult battle against entrenched , experienced in perfidy and manipulation people , who have contempt for all morality and decency , and there is disproportionate level of knowledge , skills , experience and access to resources making it difficult to crack the veneer of pretension of respectability.
With very limited means of communication or protest and with the reputation tainted by being in prison I have been faced with the wall built not of bricks but peoples attitudes and conduct .
The wall of perfidy , lies , inhumanity.
My suffering is aggravated by the fact that I dared to represent myself in court and persecuting me is kind of a lesson to others not to contemplate such idea although I am asking not for a privilege but for the respect of my right to do so…”
