FOI delivers another head on a plate

A document obtained under the Freedom of Information Act,and some painstaking reconstruction of another trashed document by the Tasmanian Greens, have led to the resignation of the Deputy Premier of Tasmania, Steve Kons, after it was revealed that he had misled Parliament. Documents also reveal that the then head of the Premier's Department Linda Hornsey intervened successfully to stop an appointment to the magistracy by Kons of the person responsible for examining the Gunns pulp mill proposal, who had during that time raised difficult questions with the proponents.Kons had denied in Parliament that he had proposed the appointment,but the trashed document showed otherwise.

According to this report in The Mercury , Hornsey has been in Canberra heading the 2020 Summit Secretariat.
