KLC have bowed to pressure from the state government

At the Federal Court sitting today KLC withdraw the application for the native title claim groups to split and lodge separate claims. KLC have bowed to pressure for the state government and refused to carry out the instructions of their clients.

The government was acting on advice from the State Solicitors Office when it warned the KLC that splitting the claim was a breach of the agreement. Yesterday, KLC believed it had no choice but to attempt to split the claim after it became clear that the Goolarabooloo people intended to break away from the Jabirr Jabirr.

So under whose direction did KLC take this action?

  2. So the entire claim groups get to vote again.
    Barnett will have to threaten them all with CA again.
    So all the 1600 will have their papers done this time.
    The KLC won't be able to bus in from faraway this time,unless Barnett stumps up the fares again.
    Hmmmmmm well maybe I'm just dreaming?
