By Aaron Humes: During her contribution to last week’s budget debate, Senator for Trade Unions and Civil Society Elena Smith shared that one of her fellow senators had not only shared nude pictures of a teacher who had been fired from her job, but then proceeded to make rude comments.
She questioned whether this is the example we want to set when it comes to cyber-bullying.
But on Friday, her Senate colleagues from the United Democratic Party and Senate President Lee Mark Chang by press statement denied any involvement and asked the Senator to take her concerns both to appropriate authorities and the leadership of the upper chamber.
But Smith joined the Opposition People’s United Party and social partner senators in their own statement, calling out the decision to handle the matter in a partisan way, considering that a joint statement would have had the best interest of the public and women in particular.
Chang is directly criticized for having signed the UDP Senators’ statement, showing him to be partisan, instead of supporting a joint statement.
At least both sides agree that such actions are to be condemned, but it appears no one is willing to own up to it at this time.///
