Corrupt pensioner judges syphon hard working Aussie tax payers.

Hard working Australians sure do hate 'dole bludgers' (welfare recipients who have no interest in earning a decent living).

The corporate media jump on the band wagon of a grandma cheating a government welfare agency.

Many may say recently arrived migrants are living the life of luxury on government welfare, while partaking in either criminal activity or working 'for cash' (meaning not declaring it).

But realistically which sector of the community is responsible for 'scumming' off the taxpayers the most?



Could it be the persons who sit in a high almighty chair (in a totally different jurisdiction) in the Kangaroo Courts of Australia calling themselves 'judges'?

Well, lets shed a little light on the subject and 'you' can be the 'judge' of that.....

The term 'judge' is used very loosely in this context, where they, the judges receive, upon their retirement, a generous pension for not only themselves but also their spouse.

Male judges may have an official (female) spouse,and also a male lover (not quite that uncommon), where if it can be proven that there is 'cohabitation' the male lover is also entitled to a portion of the total of the family estate.

Even paedophile judges are not exempt from a generous pension.

The 'generosity' does not stop there, it also follows on to their children, where the children also receive a pension.

This also includes judges that so not uphold the 'law', or even recognise 'Human Rights' in accordance with international law, judges who 'err' in law, or even judges who have been up for judicial review.

Still pissed of at the small time 'granny' welfare cheat?

Bet you she cannot buy one of these from tax funded monies:


 If one did not know any better, one could be labelled by the corporate media as a 'conspiracy theorist'.

Still not convinced Aussies live on a prison island, supporting the corrupt corporate 'elite'?

Corrupt thug cops in Melbourne’s Avondale Heights?


Some questions:

Are the jokes about the police being Year 10 dropouts justified?

Are the police really out for business as a corporation or are they here to “Serve and protect” ?

Is the Melbourne’s north western suburbs police station of Avondale Heights another criminal den of thug cops (Sunshine Police Station was) that are so hard up for business they are willing to create ‘criminals' out of innocent people?

Will Victoria’s police commissioner Ken Lay support this criminal activity of police once the information is made public?

Couple of answers:

Australia’s police ‘force’ are separate corporate entities, which have their very own ABN (Australian Business Number) in every state of Australia.

See: Australian Police Check ABN's at:

As of 2013, Victoria police are operating as a corporation under the unlawfully passed Victoria Police Act of 2013.

What’s happening in the suburbs:


In an average standard Melbourne suburb, a normal family who have a mortgage on their property, who lead a very law abiding lifestyle, get a knock on their front door (which everyone has the implied licence to enter your property - to your front door only) from a couple of people in blue uniforms from the local police station on Military Rd.

The police say that they wish to speak to a particular person, who at the time was sleeping on the couch.

The police then go on to mention that someone at the shopping centre saw that person steal something.

The police then went onto mention that since that person has a clean record, if that person admits to the crime, they “..will go easy on him..”

So, does the above description of events ring any alarm bells?

Well, for one thing the police did not carry out the proper procedure as required, before attending the ‘alleged’ offender’s home.

The police also did not take any statement from the alleged witness to carry out further investigation of possible criminal activity.

The police also did not view any of the store’s recorded footage, where the so called witness allegedly saw the person steal something, where the ‘alleged’ criminal could be positively identified, BEFORE attending their home (the term residence is omitted as this relates to a military occupation).

The person at the alleged time was factually at work, where tens of work colleagues can vouch for this, including the workers output can be verified.

A fair few concerned questions:

Could anyone just make up an event that did not happen and accuse someone else, so that the cops will give them a hard time?

Are the cops hard up for quotas on ‘arrests’ (as they, the arrests, are bonds cashed in by the corporation against your ‘estate name’?) that they themselves make up a crime?

Are the two cops Year 9 half wit drop outs that cannot even follow police procedures including a well known one called the Summary OffencesAct 1966?

Is this an isolated incident involving just those two coppers?

Is the hierarchy hiding more corrupt cops from the Avondale Heights Police station?

How many more incidents like this go unreported by scared law abiding Australians (remembering that the police have the guns and regularly assault innocent unarmed people)?

Is this a fair enough summary?:

If one did not know any better, one would think one was living in a police state, you know cop station on Military Rd, cops making up crimes in order for you to confess to, complaints about police investigated by corrupt police from their very own police station.

It is a real concern considering that at least 60% of Victoria Police admitted to knowingly committing a criminal offence.

The corruption of Victoria Police extends to the publishing of falsified crime statistics, supported by the the Chief Commissioner of Victoria Police Ken Lay.

Craig Thomson found not guilty on 49 fraud charges after appeal

Craig Thomson not guilty on 49 charges

Despite being found not guilty on 49 charges against him, former federal MP Craig Thomson could still face a jail time after being found guilty of 13 counts of theft.

Former federal MP Craig Thomson could yet face a jail term, despite being found not guilty on appeal of three quarters of the charges against him.

Thomson, 50, was on Monday found not guilty of 49 counts of obtaining a financial advantage by deception because a County Court judge found the prosecution's wording of the charges was incorrect.

However, judge Carolyn Douglas found Thomson guilty of 13 counts of theft, related to the withdrawals of cash from ATMs when he used Health Services Union credit cards for personal use, including paying for sex.

The court heard that between 2002 and 2007, when Thomson was the HSU national secretary, he spent about $5000 of union money on prostitutes and relocation expenses for when he and his then wife were preparing to move from Melbourne to the NSW central coast.

Defence counsel Greg James, QC, called for Thomson to serve a six-month suspended sentence, with no time in jail, given the former Labor MP for the NSW seat of Dobell had already been punished through the notoriety of his case.

Mr James said that at the time of Thomson's offending, he had travelled frequently yet was still serving the union's members.

He said paying for sex was "popularly unacceptable but not illegal".

Judge Douglas replied: "I don't care whether he went to a brothel or Bunnings. It's the breach of trust."

She said the amount of money he stole was not significant, but the breach of trust was "very, very serious" given his responsibility within the union.

Judge Douglas said she had thought Thomson "particularly lucky" when in March magistrate Charlie Rozencwajg imposed a penalty of three months in jail, with a further nine months suspended for two years.

Thomson never served a day of that jail term as his legal team launched an immediate appeal.

In ruling in Thomson's favour in the 49 fraud charges, Judge Douglas found the prosecution was wrong in alleging Thomson deceived credit card lenders, as was alleged in the charge sheets.

The judge said Thomson had deceived the HSU when he used the money, but that was not part of the criminal offence that was alleged.

"I find it regrettable the prosecution decided to charge the accused in such a way. That is an error that cannot be changed," she said.

Judge Douglas said she did not want her decision interpreted that she condoned Thomson's behaviour.

It was clear, she said, Thomson had used the credit cards to withdraw cash for his personal use, had no authority to do so and had previously drafted a policy on the guidelines for the use of union credit cards.
"But this is a court of the law, not of morals," she said.

Judge Douglas said there was enough evidence to prove beyond reasonable doubt that the cash Thomson withdrew from ATMs belonged to the HSU, and that he had no right to use it outside union purposes.

She found Thomson guilty on 13 charges of theft, but not guilty of two counts of theft because of insufficient evidence.

One other charge was withdrawn.

Thomson sat unmoved in the dock as the judge went through her reasons.

Thomson lost Dobell in last year's election while standing as an independent.
He is on bail as he awaits sentencing on Wednesday.

If anyone thought that the legal system is 'rigged' or that the 'brotherhood' might step in and bail out one of their own, or even if one is into 'conspiracy theories' then this case has sure got to be enough to convince people that 'pollies' are literally untouchable if they are supported by their 'brethren'.

One can literally get away with theft or even murder and have NO CONSEQUENCES, as the monies at stake are from the public purse.

The lawyers are the real criminals in matter like these.

This is the corrupt legal system at work, at its best, flaunting fraud and corruption.

Failed 'legal' system responsible for Martin Place cafe siege murder of hostages

No words can literally describe the emotion and terror of the siege in a cafe at Martin Place, Sydney.

What is worse is that the gunman Man Haron Monis was well known to police as an apparent self styled 'Sheik' who was on bail for an accessory to a murder charge.

To put it bluntly the 'authorities' let him go, to roam the streets after being an accessory to murder, while people sit in jail for one year for not paying 'fines'.

This is the state of Australia's 'legal' system.

A abhorrent joke at the expense of innocent people's lives.

This whole tragedy could have been omitted if only some people where just 'doing their job', as they do so diligently when it comes to issuing a speeding 'fine'.

Read full news article below of the following headline:

Martin Place cafe siege: Police storm cafe and kill gunman ‘Sheik’ Man Haron Monis — report

Story summary:

  • Gunman Man Haron Monis killed, possibly others dead
  • Numerous hostages have left the Lindt cafe in Martin Place some with serious injuries
  • Police stormed the cafe and multiple shots were fired after 2am
  • It is unclear what prompted the police to go in
LIVE: AT least two people have been killed — including gunman Man Haron Monis — in the Martin Place cafe siege after heavily armed police stormed the location. 

As a result, the siege at the Lindt cafe in the centre of Sydney’s CBD is over.

A man was seen running with his hands up before as many as 15 hostages followed running from the cafe just after 2am. A short burst of gunfire and flash grenades were heard as police stormed the building before police declared the siege over at around 2.45am.

At least four hostages are believed to have been injured, perhaps three critically, as hostages fled the cafe and police stormed the building just after 2am.

Reports are emerging a third person may have died possibly suffering a heart attack after the siege.

Two of those required CPR at the scene and a woman in her 40s has reportedly been transported to hospital and is being treated for gunshot wounds.

One of those injured is believed to be a place officer who was seen with an amount of blood streaming from his head, Sky News reports.

Authorities are currently attempting to assess the damage and arrange urgent medical attention for the hostages and police.

It is believed the area has now been cleared for risk of explosives.

Shortly before 2.45am (AEDT), police confirmed the siege was over.

Hostages fled from the Sydney cafe where a gunman had been holding an unknown number of people for more than 16 hours just after 2am.

Television footage initially showed a man running from the eatery with his arms raised, shortly after 2am (AEDT), before being patted down by police and escorted to safety.

Minutes later, two more men and two women raced outside and were directed away by police.
Their escape was followed by 10 seconds of rapid gunfire as heavily-armed police stormed the cafe in numbers, managing to release others.

A woman, apparently middle-aged, was carried from the scene injured.

A second volley of shots erupted before the cafe filled with police and paramedics.

A number of stretchers were wheeled into the building, however, it was unclear how many people may have been injured.

According to unconfirmed reports aired by Sky News, at least four people were injured.

There was no word on the fate of the gunman, earlier identified as 50-year-old self-styled sheik Man Haron Monis.

Meanwhile, a bomb disposal robot was sent into the cafe by police.

Monis was known to police and as a self-styled preacher of Islamic State on bail for accessory to murder, as the gunman who was holding 15 terrified hostages in Sydney’s Lindt cafe.

Haron was also charged this year with indecent and sexual assault of women in 2002. Monis was hit with an additional 40 charges in October.

The 49-year-old, originally from Iran who lived in southwest Sydney, had previously sent offensive letters to the families of dead Australian soldiers, calling them ‘murderers’, The Daily Telegraph says.

He had a sawn-off shotgun and was a fringe Islamist, The Australian and Sky News reports.

As the siege exploded in Sydney’s Lindt Cafe, the world watched.

In the United States, CNN, FOX News, MSNBC and other 24-hour news channels had already dedicated most of their Monday morning programming to coverage of the emergency.

When the situation climaxed with hostages fleeing and heavily armed authorities storming the cafe in Sydney’s central business district, people around the world watched live.

CNN switched programming to the Seven Network’s coverage, while FOX News switched to Australia’s Sky News.

The New York Times, USA Today, the Los Angeles Times, the UK’s Independent and Times, France’s Le Monde and other news websites also were dominated by the harrowing photos of hostages running for their lives.

A list of corrupt Police



Illustration: A previous Victoria Police badge with the words Tenez le Droit - with the apparent translation of "Hold it Straight" - with reference to pointing a gun at the masses? The official version is that the direct translation is "Uphold the Right", which is the current motto.

Corruption within Australia's police 'force' is rife, where the mentality of the majority of police is that they are untouchable by the law and can do whatever they please, including perverting the course of justice, submitting false statements in court, assaulting the public, drug dealing, organised automobile crime, theft, extortion, a host of other criminal activities and even murder.

The purpose of this post is to collate a list of corrupt police within Australia, who have been involved in criminal activity or have committed a criminal offence.

Information can be from many different sources including: the public forum / business commonly known as a 'court', corporate media news articles, verifiable eyewitness accounts including video/hidden audio recordings, statements implicating police, and other sources not mentioned.

If seizure of property has been committed by a Victorian so called 'sheriff' accompanied by Victoria police, then their names can also be added to the list.

The information must be factual and verifiable.

We welcome any information that can lead to arrests of corrupt police.

Information can be sent to our inbox via our facebook account at Corpus Australis, comments left on our facebook page, or following this article or email to our Corporate Australia email address at gmail.

The list is started of with two names from Victoria Police, who rammed a 'driver' in his car into a letterbox, beat him up, then tried to destroy the video footage, and provided false statements in court. The two policemen are:

Kieren Atkin and Brennan Roberts.

Policeman allegedly bashed motorist before charging him with assault

Kieran Atkin at Melbourne Magistrates Court. Picture: Mark Stewart
 
A POLICE officer accused of bashing a motorist before charging him with assault is likely to be sacked after indicating he will plead guilty to the charges. 

Sen-Constable Kieran Atkin appeared briefly in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court today where his lawyer said he would plead guilty to charges of unlawful assault, driving in a dangerous manner and making a false report.

Sen-Constable Atkin was charged after his partner Constable Brennan Roberts dobbed him into his superiors.

Constable Roberts, who last October was fined $3000 without conviction for making a false report, alleged his partner punched their victim up to six times in the face after pulling the man over on August 22 last year.


During that hearing, the court heard the man spent more than four hours in the lockup before being charged with reckless conduct endangering life.

The court heard a personal video camera attached to the police car’s ceiling captured most of the alleged attack.

The incident happened when the two officers saw an unregistered Honda on the Melton Highway in Sydenham.

Sen-Constable Atkin, who was driving the car and owned the camera, activated its lights and sirens and followed the Honda for about 2km until it attempted to reverse up a driveway.

Neither officer called headquarters to advise they were in a pursuit.

The court heard the victim had been unaware the police car was following him.

Footage shows Constable Roberts get out and approach the car’s passenger door before Sen-Constable Atkin reverses and rams the car, sending its rear into a brick letterbox.

The court heard the officer then switched the camera off and over the next four minutes allegedly beat the stunned driver as he sat in the car.

The subsequent camera footage allegedly captured audio of Sen-Constable Atkin telling his partner what to tell their boss, ordering him to say the victim had aimed his car at them and heavily rammed their car while they were in it.

Neither officer mentioned the incident had been recorded.

Constable Roberts, who claimed he felt pressured and intimidated by his partner, maintained the lie for four days before confessing to his superiors.

The court heard Sen-Constable Atkin allegedly tried to delete the camera footage, but it was recovered off an external hard-drive he had used to back the files up.

Sen-Constable Atkin will reappear in court on February 24.

University ads run despite not passing senate

LABOR and key cross bench senators are today demanding the government cost and justify an advertising campaign promoting higher education changes which don’t exist. 

Education Minister Christopher Pyne is facing claims the ads are inaccurate and unnecessary.

The national “information campaign” on a new university funding system began yesterday but was authorised on November 25 — a week before those changes were rejected by Parliament.

PUP Senator Glenn Lazarus called the campaign underhanded and independent Nick Xenophon told ABC radio the ads should be withdrawn.

“This is not the law of the land. This is effectively party political advertising paid for by taxpayers, and that’s wrong,” said Senator Xenophon, who is sending an inquiry to the Auditor General.

The ads suggest that fee structures are unlikely to affect students too much — despite onThe ads suggest that fee structures are unlikely to affect students too much — despite one university admitting students will have to pay for up to 90 per cent of their course. Source: Supplied
 
Labor’s higher education spokeswoman Sharon Bird said the campaign was “misleading and makes false claims about how much students will have to pay under its unfair higher education package”.

Education Minister Pyne has yet to respond.

Last Tuesday the Senate rejected government legislation to deregulate university fee charging and cut university funding.

In early October the government had commissioned market research and radio, TV, and social media advertisements promoting the proposed changes, news.com.au revealed last Thursday.

On November 25 Education Department secretary Lisa Paul had signed off on what was called “the 2014 Higher Education Reforms Communication Campaign”. These were the ads which began yesterday.

A certification statement with Ms Paul’s statement said the advertisements would “inform the public of new, existing or proposed government policies, or policy revisions”.

They would also “provide information on government programs or services or revisions to programs or services to which the public are entitled”.

Critics are pointing out the changes the ads are explaining haven’t been approved by Parliament and a second attempt to have them passed won’t be debated until February at the earliest.

Labor is challenging as “false and misleading” claims in the ads including the statement the government will continue to pay half of a student’s university fees.

Ms Bird said in a statement that only two universities had publicly advised what their fees will be if the Government’s unfair package passes the parliament.

IRISH - The Forgotten White slaves

They came as slaves: human cargo transported on British ships bound for the Americas. They were shipped by the hundreds of thousands and included men, women, and even the youngest of children.


Whenever they rebelled or even disobeyed an order, they were punished in the harshest ways. Slave owners would hang their human property by their hands and set their hands or feet on fire as one form of punishment.
Some were burned alive and had their heads placed on pikes in the marketplace as a warning to other captives.

We don’t really need to go through all of the gory details, do we? We know all too well the atrocities of the African slave trade.

But are we talking about African slavery? King James VI and Charles I also led a continued effort to enslave the Irish. Britain’s Oliver Cromwell furthered this practice of dehumanizing one’s next door neighbour.

The Irish slave trade began when James VI sold 30,000 Irish prisoners as slaves to the New World. His Proclamation of 1625 required Irish political prisoners be sent overseas and sold to English settlers in the West Indies.

By the mid 1600s, the Irish were the main slaves sold to Antigua and Montserrat. At that time, 70% of the total population of Montserrat were Irish slaves.

Ireland quickly became the biggest source of human livestock for English merchants. The majority of the early slaves to the New World were actually white.

From 1641 to 1652, over 500,000 Irish were killed by the English and another 300,000 were sold as slaves. Ireland’s population fell from about 1,500,000 to 600,000 in one single decade.

Families were ripped apart as the British did not allow Irish dads to take their wives and children with them across the Atlantic. This led to a helpless population of homeless women and children. Britain’s solution was to auction them off as well.

During the 1650s, over 100,000 Irish children between the ages of 10 and 14 were taken from their parents and sold as slaves in the West Indies, Virginia and New England. In this decade, 52,000 Irish (mostly women and children) were sold to Barbados and Virginia.

Another 30,000 Irish men and women were also transported and sold to the highest bidder. In 1656, Cromwell ordered that 2000 Irish children be taken to Jamaica and sold as slaves to English settlers.

Many people today will avoid calling the Irish slaves what they truly were: Slaves. They’ll come up with terms like “Indentured Servants” to describe what occurred to the Irish. However, in most cases from the 17th and 18th centuries, Irish slaves were nothing more than human cattle.

As an example, the African slave trade was just beginning during this same period. It is well recorded that African slaves, not tainted with the stain of the hated Catholic theology and more expensive to purchase, were often treated far better than their Irish counterparts.

African slaves were very expensive during the late 1600s (£50 Sterling). Irish slaves came cheap (no more than £5 Sterling). If a planter whipped, branded or beat an Irish slave to death, it was never a crime. A death was a monetary setback, but far cheaper than killing a more expensive African.

The English masters quickly began breeding the Irish women for both their own personal pleasure and for greater profit. Children of slaves were themselves slaves, which increased the size of the master’s free workforce.

Even if an Irish woman somehow obtained her freedom, her kids would remain slaves of her master. Thus, Irish mothers, even with this new found emancipation, would seldom abandon their children and would remain in servitude.

In time, the English thought of a better way to use these women to increase their market share: The settlers began to breed Irish women and girls (many as young as 12) with African men to produce slaves with a distinct complexion. These new “mulatto” slaves brought a higher price than Irish livestock and, likewise, enabled the settlers to save money rather than purchase new African slaves.

This practice of interbreeding Irish females with African men went on for several decades and was so widespread that, in 1681, legislation was passed “forbidding the practice of mating Irish slave women to African slave men for the purpose of producing slaves for sale.” In short, it was stopped only because it interfered with the profits of a large slave transport company.

England continued to ship tens of thousands of Irish slaves for more than a century. Records state that, after the 1798 Irish Rebellion, thousands of Irish slaves were sold to both America and Australia. There were horrible abuses of both African and Irish captives. One British ship even dumped 1,302 slaves into the Atlantic Ocean so that the crew would have plenty of food to eat.
 
There is little question the Irish experienced the horrors of slavery as much (if not more, in the 17th Century) as the Africans did. There is also little question that those brown, tanned faces you witness in your travels to the West Indies are very likely a combination of African and Irish ancestry.

In 1839, Britain finally decided on it’s own to end its participation in Satan’s highway to hell and stopped transporting slaves. While their decision did not stop pirates from doing what they desired, the new law slowly concluded this chapter of Irish misery.

But, if anyone, black or white, believes that slavery was only an African experience, then they’ve got it completely wrong. Irish slavery is a subject worth remembering, not erasing from our memories.

But, why is it so seldom discussed? Do the memories of hundreds of thousands of Irish victims not merit more than a mention from an unknown writer?

Or is their story to be the one that their English masters intended: To completely disappear as if it never happened.

None of the Irish victims ever made it back to their homeland to describe their ordeal. These are the lost slaves; the ones that time and biased history books conveniently forgot.

AUSTRALIANS who illegally download films and TV shows from the internet would not be punished or have their internet speeds slowed down under new reforms being presented to cabinet today. 

But the proposed laws, if eventually approved, would block would-be downloaders in Australia from accessing the popular websites that host the illegal material.

Fairfax reports that Attorney-General George Brandis and Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull will present the reforms to colleagues today at the last cabinet meeting of the year.

The reforms, if agreed on, would be considered a disappointingly light touch to the companies that own the rights to movies and TV shows, because they have been campaigning for tough laws and punitive penalties to curb online piracy.

Among their wishes was slower download speeds for any internet user caught downloading illegal content.
According to the report by Fairfax, Senator Brandis and Mr Turnbull’s submission today advises internet providers and TV and movie makers to come up with a voluntary code that would be registered with the Australian Communications and Media Authority, stating that illegal downloaders would be formally warned about any online copyright breaches.

And if the measures are adopted, rights holders could take out court orders instructing internet providers to block websites that host the illegal material.

The government hasn’t ruled out taking further legislative action over internet piracy in the future, if the measures expected to be outlined today don’t work.

In the past, talks between internet service providers and media rights owners have broken down. There is conflict over who should fork out for any scheme that targets illegal downloaders.

Internet providers believe that such a scheme should be paid for by the rights holders, whereas copyright owners believe it should be a 50-50 split.

Mr Turnbull and Senator Brandis reportedly consulted with the entertainment industry, internet providers and consumer groups when writing the reforms.

Australians are among the most keen online pirates in the world, while popular drama Game of Thrones setting a new record this year to become the most illegally-downloaded show in history.

Deadly secrets: Key evidence not shared by police

Terence and Christine Hodson.
Terence and Christine Hodson.
 
PAUL Dale tried hard not to look at the cold-blooded killer who was willing to give him up for the right price. 

As Rod “The Duke’’ Collins walked from the witness stand back to the dock, Dale glanced, but there was no acknowledgment.

Both men were once charged with murder.

LAWYER’S BUGGED CALLS HIDDEN IN FILES

By design or sheer bad luck, their lives are inextricably linked by dead drug boss Carl Williams over the alleged plot to murder police informer Terrence Hodson.

Collins — who was allegedly paid $150,000 to kill Hodson — was also charged with killing his wife, Christine, who died just for being at home that fateful night on May 16, 2004.

But Dale is the one the force spent millions trying to convict.

Dale remains a suspect in ordering and paying for Terry’s murder. The motive: Terry had ratted on him over a botched burglary on Grand Final day, September 27, 2003, and turned Crown witness against him and his partner, Dave Miechel.

To make matters worse, the Oakleigh drug house was allegedly linked to crime boss Tony Mokbel and, it is alleged, up to $750,000 and bags full of ecstasy tablets went missing.

It is the police case that Dale, who had formed a corrupt relationship with Williams over the previous year — would call on his underworld contact in Williams to have Hodson executed.

Years later, Williams would confess to the murder and that he had contracted Collins, a veteran criminal who was “looking for work’’.

It took years for police to unravel a web of phone calls, safe phones, faxes and relationships inside and outside the law, which all started about four years before the murders.

WHEN PAUL MET TOMMY

PAUL Dale’s introduction to the underworld began with Tommy Ivanovic — a Brunswick criminal whom he picked up on drug matters in 2001. Their relationship would blossom and shortly after little Tommy graduated from drug dealer to killer.

On January 8, 2002, Ivanovic shot motorcyclist Ivan Conabere dead outside his West Brunswick house in a road rage incident. It was even captured by his own CCTV cameras. When homicide detectives arrested him, Ivanovic asked the officers to call Paul Dale and his police partner.

Dale attended Moonee Ponds police station to speak to some homicide investigators, but surprisingly, had nothing to help them regarding the murder probe.

What became apparent, however, was Dale initially failed to mention a threat to Ivanovic’s life — made by a stranger after Dale had been out drinking with his contact.

The sergeant, however, would visit Ivanovic in jail, where they would talk about a range of topics, including his murder charge.

But questions over Dale’s credibility would come after he made a statement about the night in the pub, recalling the threat about Ivanovic being a “dead man walking’’.

And although Dale’s version of events were viewed sceptically by the Office of Public Prosecutions — and he was not called as a witness — the drug squad detective avoided serious internal scrutiny by the force.

Dale would visit Ivanovic six times for “professional’’ reasons during the early part of his prison stint — telling superiors he was cultivating him as an informer but getting little useful information.

During one visit, Ivanovic gave Dale a name — Carl Williams — which the promoted drug squad detective entered into the police LEAP program as “Karl Williams’’ before getting the spelling correct on his second attempt.

It wasn’t long before Dale arranged to meet Williams, informing his superiors he wanted covert equipment — which they could not supply.

Their highly controversial relationship would end with Williams informing on Dale and others from prison, and bashed to death for it — right in front of little Tommy — in 2010.

Investigators from the force’s Petra taskforce — set up to investigate the Hodson murders — found Dale’s relationships with both Ivanovic and Williams were corrupt but ultimately would fail to land a conviction.

Whether Dale was corrupt or not, he was certainly living life on the edge. A series of incidents showed he was a very colourful individual.

Dale returned $1620 seized from Ivanovic for no apparent reason. He falsely stated Ivanovic claimed drugs seized in his house were found in his brother’s room and recommended charges not be laid. (They weren’t. And the record shows Ivanovic made a “no comment interview”.)

OAKLEIGH BURGLARY THEORY — A RECAP



VICTORIA Police has made many attempts to get jailed corrupt police officer David Miechel to lag on his former boss, Paul Dale. He never did.

There are theories a great deal of money is waiting for Miechel when he gets out of jail after serving his sentence over the burglary of a drug house in Dublin St, Oakleigh, on September 27, 2003.

But there is also the argument he won’t make a statement against Dale because Dale simply wasn’t involved.
A fact that is not in dispute is that Dale was not with Miechel or Terry Hodson when they burgled the house full of drugs and money.

But before Hodson was killed, he was set to testify that he and his police handlers were all in it together.
In statements made by Hodson, there are detailed accounts of three attempts to commit the burglary.

According to Hodson, the plan was cooked up at Romeo’s restaurant in Toorak.

It would prove critical that although alarm bells were sounding about Dale’s behaviour, his crew was given Operation Galop — and had the drug house under surveillance.

Miechel, who was in a relationship with Hodson’s daughter, Mandy, was bitten by a police dog when he was caught fleeing the burglary.

A key police error was that Dale was not immediately banned from any interaction with Miechel and restricted from entering the St Kilda Rd Police Crime Complex after the burglary.

It is the police theory that Dale, after an unsupervised visit to Miechel at the Epworth Hospital after being injured by the police dog, stole a “blue folder’’ from the St Kilda Rd Police Complex filled with Hodson’s informer files.

In his book Disgraced?, Dale argues it is fanciful for police to believe that he would get his share of the loot without committing the burglary. Police maintain he was meant to be there, but pulled out on the night.

The “blue folder’’, containing 31 information reports about Hodson’s snitching, was taken that night, September 27, and distributed five months later to the underworld on February 28, 2004.

THE “DARREN JOHNSON’’ SAFE PHONE

AS investigators scrutinised him, Dale suspected his regular phone would be “off’’ and used a “safe phone’’ under the fictitious name of “Darren Johnson’’ to call key people, including a lawyer.

The pair would meet as police attempted to link Dale to the burglary. At the time, the lawyer was giving legal advice to Hodson.

Hodson, already under suspicion after being caught near the burglary crime scene, was told by the lawyer to speak to ESD after meeting him, and his son Andrew, at the Celtic Club in the city.

The lawyer made several notes of the 2003 meeting.

Rodney Collins.

“Paul Dale is off and involved as is entire d/squad hierarchy,’’ read one.
“Miechel will keep his mouth shut.’’
“Message to Dale’’
“Mandy and Miechel relationship for a long time.’’

The message the lawyer was to deliver to Dale was that Hodson wanted to meet. It didn’t eventuate.

But the lawyer did begin to see Dale informally in the months after the burglary and prior to his arrest, later stating that Dale was desperate to know whether Hodson had implicated him.

On December 5, 2003, Dale, Miechel and Hodson were charged over the Oakleigh burglary and Dale, detained in the Melbourne Custody Centre, phoned the lawyer. The lawyer met him in the cells, beneath the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court.

Nine days later, following another phone call, the lawyer went to see Dale again, this time in Port Phillip Prison. The lawyer refused to act for him.

They chatted about Carl Williams’ daughter’s christening, which was going to be at Crown Casino later that day.



Dale told the lawyer he would have gone to the casino event regardless of what the police thought.
On December 19, Dale successfully argued to be released on bail.

Early in 2004, Dale and the lawyer would continue having dinners and drinks.

He would even ask whether Azzam Ahmed, the drug trafficker in charge of the Oakleigh house, had made a statement to police regarding the theft of drugs and money.

THE BLUE FOLDER

IT had been five months since the “blue folder’’ and its contents went missing from the St Kilda Rd Crime Complex, but they had not yet hit the underworld.

In late February, 2004, that would change when 31 pages confirming Hodson as a police snitch were spread across the nation. Although Victoria Police fingered Dale for the missing “blue folder’’ early on, what they crucially did not know at the time was that the Australian Federal Police had intercepted a phone call between drug boss Tony Mokbel and the lawyer.

Other phone taps picked up the lawyer talking with Williams, telling him he was supposed to catch up with his “other adviser’’ – a reference believed to be to Dale.

The lawyer admitted passing messages between Dale and Williams despite suspecting they had a corrupt relationship. The lawyer later told police of meeting Dale for a drink that night, and police taps would catch Williams on the phone.

“How are ya buddy?’’ Dale says to Williams.
 “Was hoping to catch up with you tonight. Been trying to get on to you for some time.’’
Williams reply was friendly: “…organise for one day during the week. Door’s open for you any time.’’

Williams would later confirm the voices are his, Dale’s and the lawyer’s and that there was no legitimate reason for the call.

Mokbel was in possession of the 31 pages of informer management file contained in the “blue folder’’ the following day, February 28, 2004.

They were faxed from Taiba Stables — linked to Mokbel — to underworld figure Mark Smith in Queensland.

The Herald Sun has learned that detectives investigating the Hodson murders — the Petra taskforce — only became aware of the intercepted conversation between Mokbel and the lawyer after Williams’ death in 2010.

Petra detectives planned to question the lawyer — by then their only living key witness in their investigation of the Hodson killings — over the intercepted phone call they did not know about for six years, but it never happened.

HILLSIDE MEETING

POLICE would monitor Dale in the months after he got bail in December 2003, but the Purana taskforce cracking down on the gangland war had physical and electronic surveillance on Williams.

The attention moved to Hodson, who after making allegations about his corrupt relationships with Dale and Miechel, was offered witness protection.

Hodson, who wanted to be near family, refused and even continued to sell drugs from his Kew home.

The heavily fortified house got a security upgrade, which ultimately would fail to save him or identify his killer.
The “Hillside’’ meeting, for which there is circumstantial evidence, is where police would allege Dale would offer $150,000 for the hit.

COLLAPSE

IN 2009, Dale was charged with murdering Terrence Hodson. Collins was charged over both murders, as the gunman.

Collins toyed with co-operating with police, offering some information, but wanted to strike an unrealistic deal, including a large reward for his girlfriend, Kylie.

All charges were dropped when Matthew Johnson, in an astonishing failure of the corrections system, killed Williams in their jail unit in April, 2010.

Johnson told police: “I acted alone.’’ There is much to suggest he lied.

Dale had one more hurdle to clear and he was acquitted of lying to the Australian Crime Commission in 2013.

The lawyer was not called to testify.

THE SECRET PLOT 

The police case involving Paul Dale, Carl Williams and the Melbourne lawyer

■ Australian Federal Police phone surveillance captured Tony Mokbel talking with a Melbourne lawyer about documents just days before the Hodson informer files were leaked to the underworld.

■ That lawyer, who legally represented Terry Hodson before his death, was used as a go-between by Paul Dale to make contact with Carl Williams to pass messages and arrange meetings while he was charged and under scrutiny for the Oakleigh robbery.

■ A ”safe phone’’ under the fictitious name of Darren Johnson was used to communicate with Carl, the Melbourne lawyer and other Dale associates.

■ Dale made many desperate attempts to contact Carl from February to May in 2004, culminating in a call to Carl’s dad, George, on the lawyer’s phone where a drunken Dale exclaimed: ”Tell Carl to ring (the lawyer). He’s a f---ing useless prick.”

■ Within days, Carl and George met the lawyer where Carl alleges the lawyer gave Carl the number to Dale’s “Johnson phone”.

■ The next day on May 6, 2004, Carl rang the “Johnson phone’’ from a public pay phone at the Watergardens Shopping Centre. The same day, Dale allegedly ordered the execution of Hodson.

■ The same day, Carl met Dale in Hillside despite there being no policing reason to do so.
■ On May 7, two meetings between Carl and ruthless killer Rodney Collins took place in Maribyrnong and later in the city.

■ Within 10 days, Collins, who knew Hodson, allegedly shot Hodson and his wife.

■ The Petra taskforce investigating the Hodson deaths maintained that they corroborated ”99 per cent’’ of Carl’s two statements, made in 2007 and 2009. Carl could not have ”fluked’’ his first statement to police in 2007, having no way of knowing that his father’s car, in which he travelled to Hillside, was covertly being monitored by tracking and listening devices.

■ Victoria Police has investigated whether there were outside influences in ordering Carl’s murder because of his co-operation in murder investigations.

The 4 Least Corrupt Countries In The World


Denmark 
Denmark’s Queen Margrethe II, right, with Prince Consort Henrik.
 
Denmark, New Zealand, Finland, and Sweden are the four least corrupt countries in the world, according to Transparency International’s 2014 Corruption Perceptions Index (CPI).

The US is listed as the 17th-least-corrupt place, tied with Barbados, Hong Kong, and Ireland.

Somalia, North Korea, Sudan, and Afghanistan are the most corrupt.

The CPI ranks countries and territories based on how corrupt their administrative and political institutions are perceived to be on a scale from 0 (highly corrupt) to 100 (very clean).

Denmark scored 92, New Zealand 91, Finland 89, and Sweden 87.

Top performers are found to “have high levels of press freedom, open budget processes, and strong accountability mechanisms,” according to the report.

Over the past 20 years, New Zealand has developed into a free market economy in which welfare is provided mostly on the basis of need.

The other three countries follow the general Nordic welfare model, which supports a “universalist” welfare state aimed at enhancing individual autonomy and promoting social mobility by maximizing labour force participation, promoting gender equality, providing extensive benefits, and redistributing wealth.

Denmark goes as far as involving the private sector in welfare services and providing choice for users.
Here are the top 16:

This is false information at its best.

Australia's corrupt and 'illegal' government in NOT as in your face as with for example Bali, Thailand or even Afghanistan.

Telstra - ACM Group DEBT fraud costing Australians millions annually

Does the mainstream media not report on certain 'truths' in law?

Are their courtroom reporters not allowed to report on certain cases?

Could one call it a conspiracy that the news of the day is Chris Brown partying with the Kardashians, instead of exposing the fraud and corruption within government and corporations?

Well here is another fraud that costs the unaware masses millions of dollars annually.

Under the Trade Practices and Corporations Acts, this behaviour is 'illegal' for the better term.

One may have an agreement / contract with a telecommunications (or any other) company to receive a  service or product. This contract is valid ONLY between the customer and the company.



If the customer does not pay for the product / services then they owe the company xxx amount of dollars, but once the company (e.g. Telstra) 'sells' (as shown in above illustration) the debt to another company (e.g. ACM Group), the debt has already been paid for and the customer does not owe the original service provider ANYTHING.

Since the customer does not factually or even lawfully hold a binding contract with the company that the debt has been sold to, ANY attempt to obtain monies from the customer is 'unlawful'.

This fact 'could' be put in the 'conspiracy' basket by the corporate media, but in fact it is part of the laws of business and commerce set out in Acts by the Australian (federal) / State (local) government.

The scanned document in the illustration shows that a 'corporation' (dead speaking entity) has a 'signature'.

Please note: The validity of law is put aside.
