THIESS DECISION SHOWS THAT BIG BUSINESS GETS AWAY WITH MURDER

The fiance of construction worker Tom Takurua has condemned the fine handed down by the court to Thiess for her husband’s death as ‘insulting’.

Krystle Ross said the verdict handed down yesterday in the Brisbane Magistrates Court – a fine of $120,000 after the company pleaded guilty to causing her husband’s death, was indicative of a failure in the legal system.

“Thiess have been to court 13 times to try and save their corporate name, appealing time & again in order to have the charges rewritten to lessen the severity of them” she said.

In January 2014, the CFMEU National Construction Secretary Dave Noonan wrote to Victorian Police Commissioner, Ken Lay and NSW Police Commissioner Andrew Scipione, expressing the union’s willingness to assist the police in their work.
