atsic’s dissolution unconstitutional, courts hear


Former ATSIC deputy chairman Ray Robinson is spearheading legal action in the Brisbane District court next week.

He says he will be arguing the Howard government acted illegally by abolishing ATSIC.

“A number of members of the board of commissioners are challenging the validity of the winding up of ATSIC,” he said.

“I am challenging that it was invalid, unconstitutional. We had advice from a top constitutional lawyer, David Jackson QC, and I am challenging on that advice.

“This one will go all the way to the High Court of Australia.
