Victorians owe $1.5 billion in fines
Victorians owe more than $1.5 billion in outstanding warrants for parking fines and unpaid tolls.
The Sheriff's Office arrested 3354 people in 2013/14, up from 2086 the previous year.
'Unfortunately some people are still not getting the message that you cannot hide from your unpaid fines,' Victorian Sheriff Brendan Facey said on Monday.
The Sheriff's Office finalised about 420,000 warrants in 2013/14, an increase of nearly 25 per cent.
Despite that action, the value of outstanding warrants in the last year grew from $1.316 billion to $1.533 billion.
Mr Facey said reforms were on the way to provide a single, integrated system to track and collect infringement fines, court fines, victim compensation orders and civil judgment debts.
He said the changes would give the Sheriff's Office greater ability to identify people racking up large amounts of outstanding fines and take action early.
What is not mentioned:
- The so called sheriffs of Victoria are factually operating unlawfully as debt collectors.
- Any person acting in a capacity as a 'sheriff' other than Brendan Facey is doing so unlawfully.
- The warrants issued are unlawful.
- Victoria Police are participating in a conspiracy together with the Sherrif's Office to defraud billions of dollars from Victorians, an act which is an indictable criminal offence.
In Victoria, a current and applicable law is within the Imperial Acts Application Act (1980) - Sect 8, contains an entrenched law of England called the Bill of Rights (1688).
 I William and Mary Sess. II (Bill of Rights) c. II,
- 12. That all grants and promises of fines and forfeitures of particular persons before conviction, are illegal and void.
The Australian 'courts' do not want the 'accused' to know this information, nor present it in their defense.
