China to purchase Human Rights Commission
MELBOURNE, VIC — The Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and Victorian Government have reached an agreement for the sale of the Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission.
Due to the economic damage caused by the COVID19 virus, many independent government-owned bodies have now been put up for sale to help repay state debt.
The Victorian Premier, Daniel Andrews, had previously committed to a non-legally binding agreement for Victoria to be involved in the Chinese Government’s global development strategy, the Belt and Road initiative.
This agreement was criticised by the Prime Minister who has floated new laws which could overrule such contracts, but Premier Andrews indicated that the partnership would give Victoria access to hundreds of billions of dollars for projects including new highways, ports and railways.
It is further reported that the CCP has declared an expansion of the project – renaming it the Belt, Road and Soul initiative – and are now approaching governments around the world and offering to pay top dollar for their human rights compliance bodies, judiciaries, and election commissions.
Premier Andrews said that this was an exciting opportunity for Victorians.
“For many years we have envied the human rights record of China, whose ability to enforce their views on equality, history and general scientific fact is unrivalled in the Asia-Pacific region.”
“Through the sale of the Victorian Opportunity and Human Rights Commission and increased partnership with the CCP, the People’s Republic of Victoria will soon become a beacon of red flashing light to the rest of Australia.”
