Criminal Actions Within DVA
Lodgement of Formal Complaint
PSYOPS Options

 

Department of Veterans’ Affairs’ Departmental Instructions  instruct DVA staff to act in breach of the VEA Act, the Criminal Code and the Crimes Act, and to suppress evidence of breaches of the Privacy Act.

 

These Departmental Instructions order staff to not include relevant information on veterans’ files. The consequence of these actions is that this information is not taken into account when determining the veterans’ applications for war pensions. They also instruct staff to not accept external reports until they are happy with them.

 

Some of this suppressed information could contain evidence of breaches of the Privacy Act.

 

 

I've only researched my way onto the following matter very recently.

 

The approach is still being formulated, but it seems to me that the best approach is to lodge a formal complaint with the Australian Federal Police.
