Meanwhile, another branch of the Australian executive has ‘blindfolded’ the Australian public by placing a super-injunction on a multi-national corruption case. The Supreme Court of the state of Victoria has banned Australian media organisations from reporting on the case which reportedly involves officials from Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam. The gag follows the secret indictment seven senior executives from subsidiaries of Australia’s central bank, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), Wikileaks reported.

“The case concerns allegations of multi-million dollar inducements made by agents of the RBA subsidiaries Securency and Note Printing Australia in order to secure contracts for the supply of Australian-style polymer bank notes to the governments of Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam and other countries.”
