Re: Complaint resulting from the ABC's Q&A program broadcast on 18 July 2016 Dear ABC Audience & Consumer Affairs,
We write on behalf of the Australian Croatian Congress (ACC), the peak representative body of the Croatian diaspora in Australia. The ACC is a member of the Croatian World Congress, the global representative group
representing the diaspora to the Croatian Parliament.
We wish to outline a series of alleged breaches of the ABC Code of Practice stemming from the abovementioned episode of Q&A.
Please excuse the detailed nature of this document. It is a complex issue that requires careful examination of issues dating back many years across several countries involving a variety of jurisdictions. It consists of some background, the alleged breaches of the ABC's Coder of Practice and a conclusion stating our wishes for resolution.
