The problem with Australia’s “irrelevant” Crimes against humanity is “The Elephant in the Room”, i.e. the unreported fatalities. As the letter from Assistant Secretary Neil Skill reveals, Centrelink does not collect and report the statistics on post-breaching fatalities.

Another issue is that these deaths, which are murders, are no officially recognised as murders and therefore nothing is done to stop the death toll from rising. The following information, which is part of an Administrative Tribunal Appeal submission, is provided for readers to consider.
THE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM
Centrelink does not record and report fatalities that occur after welfare penalties are applied. Given that these unconstitutional, human rights violating penalties are applied to an officially acknowledged “Vulnerable” minority section of Australia’s society, this is not surprising.
ABS Catalogue Suicides 1992 – 2010
The following statistics are a collation sourced from the Australian Bureau of Statistics Catalogue 3309 and includes “Causes of Death” revisions made between earlier published data, e.g. 3309.0.55.001 and more recent data that was released on 24th July 2012.
Approximately 1 in 3 suicides is an unemployed person and the top 5 categories contain significant numbers of Centrelink clients:
In South Australia, suicides triggered by ‘No show, no pay’ penalties or fraudulent Centrelink tort actions are Murder:
South Australian Criminal Law Consolidation Act: (1935)
Section 13 (7) Murder by Suicide
(7) A person who, by fraud, duress or undue influence, procures the suicide of another or an attempt by another to commit suicide shall (whether or not he was a party to a suicide pact with the other person) be guilty of murder or attempted murder, as the case may require.
Division 1A—Criminal neglect
14—Criminal liability for neglect where death or serious harm results from unlawful act (section 14.4)
All states and territories have similar laws, e.g. Queensland, s. 302(4)

Summary of Findings, page XV
Cardiovascular disease was responsible for 43,602 deaths in Australia.
Of all Australians aged 55–64 years, 8.8% reported living with heart, stroke or vascular disease and prevalence increases with age. The self-reported rate of heart, stroke or vascular disease was 17.1% among those aged 65-74 years, 26.0% among those aged 75-84 and 39.5% among those aged 85 years and over.
Forms of Murder
There are three ways in which murder can be committed:
The accused can cause the victim’s death while intending to kill or cause really serious injury, or being reckless as to that result;
The accused can unintentionally cause the victim’s death in the course or furtherance of certain violent crimes;
Note: The 3rd way of causing a murder is a death whilst escaping from custody, i.e. an “automatic” murder charge and is not relevant to the issue of possible murders caused by welfare policies and practices in Australia.
Decide for yourself if a breached family member was ‘natural causes, a suicide, or murder.
