It is clear that the Department of Transport and its agencies are riddled with corruption. The evidence concerning V/Line and Metro Trains Melbourne at IBAC must be explained by Jacinta Allan, the Minister who supported the appointment of the now sacked James Pinder and who ignored the wake-up call of IBAC’s Operation Lansdowne.
Allan must explain how she let this nest of crooks siphon off taxpayers’ money. It is culpable that she did not act and end it in 2017. The V/Line board too must go but the corruption goes further than V/Line. This entrenched corruption must be rooted out.
Taxpayers’ money has been syphoned off to enrich corrupt officials. Taxpayers will rightly be furious.
