I am sort of a whistle blower, I ask questions about illegal MPs being in parliament and the questioning seems to have caught on. A lot are asking and a lot are being caught.
I have been told by the South East Queensland version of the Australian Federal Police that they will ignore any report I lodge about a Commonwealth Crime. A person singing a false declaration to nominate for election to parliament is committing a Commonwealth crime.
Now I find the Australian Federal Police have blocked me on Twitter. What the fuck for?
I have written to Sue Bird and Andrew Colvin deputy and commissioner of the AFP asking what are they up to.
The AFP have now written to me saying it is not their job to investigate Commonwealth crimes. A copy of that at the end of the blog. Why not report a crime for them? They seem to want to ignore me. https://www.afp.gov.au/contact-us/report-commonwealth-crime
These are the Commonwealth Crimes I have reported so far.
I believe others are reporting Commonwealth crimes of a similar vein and if yo read this can you please add your information or links to the comments below. Some others I have found are:-

The email from AFP saying not their job to investigate.
Reference is made to your multiple emails to the Australian Federal Police dated between 28 October and 9 November 2017.
The AFP is the primary law enforcement agency responsible for investigating crimes against the Commonwealth of Australia. Information about what the AFP may investigate and the processes involved can be found at:
Under the Australian Government Investigations Standards, Commonwealth entities have their own anti-fraud or investigative components, and have the primary responsibility for investigating fraud committed against their agencies. Where a matter is sufficiently serious or complex, Commonwealth agencies will forward the matter to the AFP for consideration.
Matters that pertain to the alleged false or misleading statement made in an application to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) is not the role of the AFP and are best referred to the AEC.
The AEC has primary responsibility for investigating alleged offences against their Agency and those that are relevant to the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918.
Should the AEC identify that a criminal offence has been committed they may refer the matter to the AFP for further investigation if required.
Your correspondence has been recorded by the AFP however no further action will be taken.

Email from Paul Pirani chief legal office at the AEC
Dear Mr Magrathea
As you have previously been advised, the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) does not administer section 44 of the Constitution and has no power to investigate claims that persons may have incorrectly claimed that they were not disqualified by the operation of that section of the Constitution.
Let me clearly state that the AEC has no power or function that would enable it to conduct any investigations into the issue of incorrect information being included on the candidate nomination forms.
As you will no doubt be aware, the actions of the Court in these proceedings are not the first time that a person who has sat in the Parliament has been found to have been disqualified. Previous cases include In re Wood [1988} HCA 22, Sykes v Cleary  HCA 60, Free v Kelly  HCA 42, Sue v Hill  HCA 30; Re Culleton (No. 2)  HCA 4 and Re Day (No. 2)  HCA 14. The AEC administers the conduct of federal elections according to the Commonwealth Electoral Act 1918 (Electoral Act). The Electoral Act does not provide the AEC with the authority to conduct eligibility checks on potential candidates. This is particularly the case given the complexities of overseas citizenship- laws and the short timeframe between the close of nominations and the commencement of early voting.
The eligibility of candidates is addressed in section 44 of the Constitution. The Attorney General's Department administers the Constitution and the AEC cannot disqualify a candidate relying on the operation of section 44 of the Constitution. The AEC is subject to the requirements of the Electoral Act. Section 172 of the Electoral Act sets out the only grounds upon which the AEC is able to reject a nomination of a candidate. Those grounds do not include disqualifying a candidate under the Constitution. Any disqualification of a candidate due to the operation of section 44 of the Constitution can only be determined by the High Court sitting as the Court of Disputed Returns after an election.
In relation to the issue of potential fraud in relation to the completion of the candidate nomination form, this does not fall within the jurisdiction of the AEC as the relevant fraud provisions are contained in the Criminal Code Act 1995 which is administered by the Attorney-General's Department. The investigation of possible fraud offences is a matter for the Australian Federal Police (AFP). Accordingly, questions relating to the interpretation of the Criminal Code Act 1995 and any possible action for fraud would need to be directed to that Department and the AFP. However, as far as the AEC is aware no prosecutorial action was taken in any of the previous cases. Given the complexities of the overseas citizenship laws that were addressed by the Court in this matter, it would appear that such action was not taken is due to the difficulties in proving all of the elements of such an offence.
