Falklands Corruption. Falkland Islands Government guilty in Supreme Court for Human Rights Abuse (5943 words)
The Falkland Islands Government were very hostile towards Bingham’s report, and he was told by Councillor Mike Summers and Chief Executive Andrew Gurr that such a report could be very damaging to the Falklands economy which depended on commercial fishing.
The Governor assured Bingham that he would not tolerate any harassment by the police or government officials, and promised that if Bingham’s prediction that his property was about to be searched turned out to be true, that he would investigate the matter most thoroughly.
The Falkland Islands Government had notified the public that Bingham was a convicted burglar, knowing full well that in such a small community this would make him and his family the subject of hate and retaliation.
