Court finds police not a criminal organisation

A MAN who tried to have the Queensland Police Service declared a criminal organisation and all its associates sent to hard labour camps for re-education has had his legal appeal thrown out of court.

Peter Markan had sought damages of $10 million and 13 cents from the QPS for failing to investigate his claims three Court of Appeal judges were actually imposters responsible for human rights abuses.

He called for the QPS to make a "public apology utilising all major public media for the harm and distress caused by the defendant's alleged unlawful conduct".

Those claims were struck out in July 2014 for several reasons, including that the QPS was a "non-existent defendant" in legal terms and it wasn't possible to determine who the proper defendant would be.

The judge also found the relief Mr Markan sought was extraordinary and arguably could not be delivered by the courts.
