China-HK protest on Australian campuses but not at Minshen Zhu controlled campuses-Are legal profession admission rules being used (again ) to suppress complaints and protests
In the words of the ABC:
The New South Wales Department of Education has expelled a Chinese Government language program from the state's public schools due to fears of potential foreign influence
The Confucius Institute program is overseen by Chinese Government agency Hanban and teaches Mandarin in 13 public schools across Sydney and on the mid-north coast.
Meanwhile, one of the most high profile promoters of the Confucius Institute in NSW, Minshen Zhu, continues to receive preferential treatment from the NSW's most senior judicial officer, the Attorney General Mark Speakman SC, and his Legal Profession Admission Board. As this writer has asked (and keeps asking for no answer has been provided):
Why did the LPAB make an exception for China's Minshen Zhu & Top Group -AG NSW Speakman maintains political silence despite weakening share price, China protests
It has been reported here previously that that Speakman has granted Zhu powers not only to issue law degrees but also, in effect, the power to determine if graduates of his Sydney City School Of Law can be admitted to practise in NSW and in Australia.
The LPAB is chaired by the Chief Justice of NSW, Mr Thomas Bathurst.
