    Oohps, Not surprising, the way she was behaving, laughing, mocking and behaving quite childishly on her podcasts, I was actually wondering ....
    Well may be she is better geared for another profession, albeit I feel some empathy for her, as I believed that she was not mature enough for our esteemed profession.

    I noticed that on one of the FB forums there are many expressions of sympathy by people who either have no idea what happened or who clearly have not read the decision letter.

    Maybe the decision letter could provide material for a future CPD on how NOT to run a migration agency.

    What makes this case so bizarre for me is that the person was a respected and trusted RMA being a popular migration podcaster and apparently a teacher of the capstone subject. Yet she appeared to have led a double life. We can all get things wrong and make mistakes but according to the judgement she so completely departed from the principals of the profession.

    Hello Sergio? Hello Mark? Wednesday, 22 June 2022

    Isn't it interesting that Sergio hasn't covered this story in his news, when he covers a lot of other OMARA sanctions? Is it because he KNOWS Monica? Will Mark be covering this solo on The Migration Show? Again....probably not. Bit too close to home for Mark and Sergio.

    Hello Migration Alliance? Wednesday, 22 June 2022

    Speaking of summarising cases involving practitioners how about we ask for Sergio to do a summary of a disciplinary decision against migration alliance's public officer and interim secretary: https://portal.olsc.nsw.gov.au/dasearchbn/daresultdetail/?id=1d59a7df-b633-eb11-bf74-000d3ad1941e

    Or how about we ask for Sergio to do a summary of a federal court decision ordering the law firm of migration alliance's public officer and interim secretary to pay legal costs for telling a client a case had 100% chance of success when in reality there were no reasonable prospects of success at all: http://www.austlii.edu.au/cgi-bin/viewdoc/au/cases/cth/FCA/2020/558.html

    Oh oh... i dont think this blogger has considered that the OLSC might have something to say about publishing matters without their comment...

    I would have thought we would have more solidarity with other agents than the commentary indicates. Let he or she who is without sin (in a very difficult and poorly regulated industry) cast the first stone.

    I agree with Nick Houston.
