Gillian Triggs: Taking on the Government ‘Not a Good Career Move’

After the non-renewal of her contract has been revealed, the outgoing Human Rights Commission President Gillian Triggs said in a conference in Sydney that challenging the policy of government is "clearly not a good career move".

After the expiration of international lawyer's contract next year, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has declared on Wednesday that Triggs will be replaced after her term ends in July 2017. Triggs has been renowned with her negative takes with the federal government.

Triggs has indicated said move in a speech in Sydney last Friday concentrating on the Council of Social Service of Australia. She told the teenagers that challenging the policies of the government is obviously not a right career move.

Professor Triggs said while drawing laughter on her audience's faces that she really would not advice challenging government policies if one is taking a lead. But it may seem to be a necessary characteristic of a person who tends to tell the truth to be older who is also not searching for preferment of advancement.

The outgoing chair of the Human Rights Commission talked regarding the abuse in connection to media and politics. Triggs continued but also said that she could not survive from the upshots of not speaking up. MPs from both Nationals and Liberals had put an eye to Triggs after a certain reports has revealed that she commissioned in the immigration detention of children.

Just recently, Triggs was condemned in a debate tackling Section 18C of the controversial Racial Discrimination Act. She has spoken that when her term has ended and she is digging in her garden, expectantly savouring the smell of a rose, she could not exist for any lack of initiative on her part to lift this day's critical rights of human.

Triggs also shielded the human rights commission explaining that the independence and the "inability of ministers to dismiss the president for giving advice that may be challenging or controversial" is a vital part of the commission's responsibility.

Said Human Rights Commission President pushed for the investigation of Bill Leak, The Australian's cartoonist, allegedly violating Section 18C after depicting a native father who talked about performing his responsibility with his son.

In July next year, a new President of the Human Rights Commission will replace Professor Gillian Triggs.
