Australian crimes, corruption and maladministration of governments, law enforcement authorities and news media that are concealed by the fake records of Australian newspapers published.
A brief account of some of the newspaper articles erased from publicly accessible Australian state and national public libraries records of newspapers published and the crimes & corruption that the fake archives of newspapers conceal can be viewed at https://rjrbtsrupertsfirstnewspaper.wordpress.com/2015/07/27/australian-government-law-enforcement-and-news-media-corruption-in-brief-ref-sbsa-bankruptcy-6/ with some relevant documents [e.g. ASC press releases of information published in Adelaide’s News Ltd. ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper – since erased from ‘archives’] posted. The information also appears below as a summary of events – see 1989 in the timeline, above the heading News media reporting false, misleading and deceptive.
Rupert Murdoch began his news media empire in Adelaide South Australia with his first newspaper the afternoon daily tabloid the ‘News’. Australian state and national public libraries’ records of his newspapers published are false records not archives. Australian news media including the ABC are aware of and participants in the deception of the Australian public.
The State Bank of South Australia announced it was bankrupt in February 1991 leaving a multi-billion dollar debt to taxpayers. The debt has never been accounted for. SBSA’s illegal uses of “Off Balance Sheet” companies were never prosecuted. Details never disclosed appear below.
In 1986 while employed as a bank officer with the State Bank of South Australia (SBSA) I was given information concerning corporate loans & acquisitions of my employer the State Bank of South Australia that gave me good reason to understand the bank & the SA government was involved in maladministration and corruption that would bankrupt the Bank & the state. The SBSA management perceived me to be problem and I was subjected to abuse, harassment, threats & intimidation. I’ve experienced a plague of administration errors since that time. These unlikely “administration errors” also referred to as “honest mistakes” & “departures from procedures for reasons unknown,” have continued into 2015. Such claims that suggest extraordinary Australian government, law enforcement and news media incompetence, that involve failures to comply with laws, are not credible.
Roger J. Bates – Employed as a bank officer September 1974 by the Savings Bank of South Australia established in 1848 – ‘Guaranteed by the Government of South Australia’. SBSA became the State Bank of South Australia in 1984 – R. J. Bates employed from 1974 to 29 May 1989
1983 – SBSA celebrates achieving One Billion Dollars of depositors’ funds.
1984 – South Australian parliament altered the charter of the Savings Bank of SA, changed the name to the State Bank of SA and appointed Tim Marcus Clarke as the Managing Director. Lawyer David Simmons remained Chairman of the Board of Directors of SBSA. On the June 30 1984 SA Premier/Treasurer John Bannon (ALP) & SA Parliamentary Opposition Leader John Olsen (Lib.) formerly handed over control of the bank to the new Managing Director Tim Marcus Clarke. The new State Bank of SA (formerly Saving Bank of SA) was required to employ all employees of the old State Bank of SA (that was not a bank with services offered to the public) who were SA state public servants. SBSA employees were then encouraged (bullied) to abandon their SA taxpayer funded superannuation scheme & contribute to a newly created retirement fund.
1985 – SBSA purchased Beneficial Finance Corp. (BFC) for one billion dollars. David Simmons (Chairman of the Board of Directors of SBSA) was appointed a Director of BFC.
1986 August – October – SBSA employees of the University of Adelaide Branch where I was employed each received a series of one page letters addressed to ‘Dear State Banker’ with SBSA Managing Director Letterhead signed by Tim Marcus Clarke. Those letters referred to the now minor role of retail banking would play within the new bank and the major role of Corporate Lending. Those one page communications from the SBSA Managing Director Tim Marcus Clarke boasted of recent Corporate Loans and acquisitions – including
Two (2) Loans of $200 Million to the National Safety Council of Australia (Victoria ) – (In 1989 NSCA Victoria Division was discovered to be a pyramid scam (Ponzi scheme USA terminology) with new loans paying running expenses and instalments on previous loans.
The purchase through ‘Kanani’ (100% owned by SBSA/BFC) of 49% of Victorian development companies Mintern from Alan Burloch for $20 Million & Crestwin from William Turner for $10 Million. Mintern and Crestwin were said to have “some cross ownership” and 2% of each held in Trust (no ref. for whom) by Adelaide Law firm Thomson Simmons and Co. The multiple level involvement of David Simmons & his law firm in SBSA management and these arrangements described, appeared to have compromised his independence & potentially his ability to make appropriate decisions. My attempt to discuss with SBSA Adelaide University branch manager (former State Bank of SA not Savings Bank of SA) the implications of SBSA’s arrangements of ownership of companies Crestwin & Mintern and the involvement of SBSA Board Chairman (also BFC & Kabani Director) David Simmons and his law firm was met with the response “don’t look at me for help in questioning this, I’m 2 years away from retirement”. Expressing my concern for the future of the bank with other SBSA management was not welcome. I was advised that I was a “trouble maker with an attitude problem”.
A $20 Million Loan to Victorian company Pro-Image Studios Ltd. whose Director was William Turner
A $200 Million Loan to Equiticorp NZ (New Zealand) – The Managing Director of Equitcorp NZ was SBSA Managing Director Tim Marcus Clarke.
The purchase for $80 Million of Oceanic Capital Corp. (an Insurance company – years later it was disclosed that money paid (& never recovered) indirectly benefitted Equiticorp NZ . Tim Marcus Clarke was successfully sued for $80 Mill. of which $2 Mill. was paid. Mr Clarke had earlier disposed of has assets to family members.
A later reference to ‘non-performing loans’ – meaning they were not being repaid or accumulating interest for the borrowers. They were accumulating interest for which the bank was liable.
It was implied that employees of SBSA retail banking (bank branch employees) could not expect much in SBSA’s new corporate banking dominated environment.
1986 – Adelaide’s news media referred to the Marino Rocks marina to be developed by William Turner and Alan Burloch. The Marino Rocks Adelaide suburban coastline is a very large inaccessible cliff face of sold rock that plunges down to the ocean that, depending on the tides can at its first 300 metres of water, be between a few inches to a one or two metres deep. The only possible access to the site was a narrow coastal road lined with very valuable residential housing. That area of coastline is subject to important sand movement from South to North and is known for a geological fault line through the area. The adjacent beach for the suburb of ‘Brighton’ has suffered massive environmental degradation over the previous 20 years and needs constant sand replacement costing millions of dollars per year for it to be useable by the public.
1986 (late) Australian Broadcasting Corp. (ABC) television current event program ‘The 7-30 Report’ broadcast a segment that lasted less than 5 seconds during which SA Environment Minister Susan Lenehan MP announced she had given her approval to an exemption from the requirement of an Environmental Impact Statement for the Marino Rocks marina development. An image of Susan Lenehan was shown, in what appeared to be a state of panic, surrounded by a crowd of journalists with microphones. She said “but we already know what’s there”. SA Environment Minister Susan Lenehan MP was on the television screen for less than 3 seconds. The TV segment broadcast ended and went to another topic of current affairs. It appeared to be a very strange & unusual for ABC TV ‘7-30 Report’ Current Affairs program. When viewing it my first thought was ‘what the fuck was that?’ after which I had a sense of the ABC TV program producers & staff possibly reacting to being required to limit its coverage of the announcement. No other news media made any reference to granting of the exemption of Environmental Impact (study) statement for the marina development. I took particular notice of any news media information regarding the Marino Rocks marina because of what I knew of the developers’ relationships with my employer the State Bank of SA.
From late 1986 while at work as a bank officer I received bizarre and harassing phone calls from purported customers who refused to identify themselves & who made unreasonable demands. I also experienced other unusual events in my employment as a bank officer.
In mid-1987, the ‘Manager’ of the University of Adelaide branch in a strange conversation asked me what I did with the circulars in reference to SBSA Managing Director letterhead documents addressed to ‘Dear State Banker’ we had each received. I was soon transferred to the King William St. (Head Office) Overseas dept. to process foreign currency changed for Australian dollars at SBSA branches & other related work. While there I experienced interference with the work and continued to receive bizarre phone calls from unidentified people making unreasonable demands while claiming to be bank customers who again had specifically asked for me by name.
From about August 1987 I was on the SBSA’s relieving staff (also previously from 1978 to 1983) as a temporary replacement for bank branch staff absent on annual leave, sick leave, long service leave & other absences or when extra staff was required. SBSA reduced the number of its ‘relieving staff’ in about November 1987 & I was placed as a permanent staff member at a metropolitan branch. I continued to receive very unusual phone calls from purported customers refusing to identify themselves & other apparent harassment & abuses throughout 1987.
I attempted to discuss issues of SBSA mismanagement/maladministration and my harassment in the workplace with senior management and eventually in late 1987 with the last of the SBSA (former Savings Bank of SA) Chief General-Manager Mr. Ken Matthews (resident of the suburb of ‘Brighton’ close to the marina development site) with whom I mentioned the Marino Rocks marina. Mr. Matthews was clearly reluctant to discuss any of these issues and said he would arrange for me as of January 1988 to again work on the bank’s ‘Relieving Staff’ as I had done much earlier for five years, where he said “I seemed to be most content”.
From 1986 to 1988 I was involved with the Australian Bank Employees Union (ABEU) state branch and SBSA subcommittees (ABEU had a compulsory SBSA Union agreement) where I found the ABEU administrative staff (secretary & assistant secretary) determined to hand over control of many decades of accumulated ABEU SA state branch assets to the Union’s federal executive and to affiliate all of SA’s ABEU union membership with the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU)which would provide a large sum of money to the ACTU. The process with which they succeed handing SA state ABEU union funds to the ACTU was corrupt, deceptive & objectionable. Half of the SA state ABEU union membership (SBSA staff being nearly all of SA’s ABEU membership) was at first affiliated with the ACTU, providing ABEU federal executive (federal secretary Len Hinkley) voting rights on Australian Labor Party (ALP) policy making committees.
From late 1986 I appeared to be stalked by people who very often appeared at places that I frequented in the evenings where they were very much out of place and during the late 1980’s began to often come to my workplaces as customers. (The banking services they sought did not identify them) By mid-1988 I could not doubt that I was being stalked. Years later some were identified as SA Police officers (10 July 1992 ‘Home Invaders’ Les Shearn, Grant Gittos & others) and a Private Investigator (Frank Carbone)who it was later revealed had connections to both corrupt police and organised crime gang members with whom he was co-accused on serious criminal charges for which prosecutions failed. SA Police Officers investigating corrupt police were themselves accused by a SA Judge as being corrupt.
1988 – Jan. –Sept. The harassment and abuses in the workplace that I experienced continued throughout 1988 in my daily, temporary SBSA relieving staff, workplaces where I was required to do work made difficult to impossible by files that I could easily see had been sabotaged before my arrival at those workplaces.
In September 1988 I was excluded from the SBSA/ABEU Award Restructure implementation process. My correspondence required for the 1988 Award restructure was repeatedly lost by SBSA administration/management.
During September 1988 SBSA Chief General-Manager Mr. Ken Matthews, when I again telephoned him, came to visit me at suburban Glenelg branch of the bank the following day. He advised me that I had “too many days off owing to me” and said I was required to take leave to reduce them. As of September 1988 I had two months (related to 2 years) annual leave, accumulated monthly rostered days off, leave in lieu of travel (related to relieving staff – travel time to country branches), three months of accumulated long service leave and eventually sick leave, while I attempted to communicate with the ABEU and SBSA management concerning issues of my harassment and abuse in the workplace and exclusion from the September 1988 ABEU/SBSA Award Restructure implementation process.
1989 – In 1989 the ABEU Assistant secretary Jessica Harrington whom I had met years previously & whom I knew from her work & enthusiasm to provide millions of dollars of SA State Branch ABEU assets to the Federal Executive to be controlled by ABEU Federal Secretary Ken Hinkley (later an ABC Board member with former SA Premier/Treasurer John Bannon) said to me that “the 1988 SBSA Award Restructure was over & complete, there were bound to be people who slipped through the cracks and the Union would not assist me regarding my exclusion from the implementation process”. She ridiculed my suggestion that the SBSA was bankrupt and would eventually bankrupt the state of SA.
In 1989 SBSA management claimed my experiences were “normal everyday events that SBSA bank officers experienced in the course of their employment”. It was implied that I was delusional and the bank demanded that I produce a Doctor’s report* that would allow my return to work. SBSA Staff Dept. Chief Manager (Manager Personnel) Geoff Abbott said that the bank would pay my Mortgage Loan conditional on my resigning and not lodging a Workcover (workers compensation) claim. I told him that “I would believe it when it happened”. I Lodged a SA Workcover claim soon after with the intention of eventually having the opportunity to give sworn testimony detailing my work experiences. To offer a person an inducement not to lodge a SA Workcover claim is a crime. I reported the offer made, to SA Workcover but never heard from them again. The bank, being a SA Workcover exempt employer, needed to process the claim before the SA Workcover organisation became involved. It was two years before the claim was finally processed by the SBSA.
1989 April – In April 1989, to satisfy the requirements of SBSA management I, on referral from a General Practitioner Doctor, met with Psychiatrist Dr. Alan Fraser (RANZCP) who asked me what the problem was. I replied that “my employer the State Bank of SA is bankrupt, looked likely to bankrupt the state of South Australia and that I had received more than two years of harassment and abuse in my workplaces”.
I showed Dr Fraser the SBSA Managing Director letterhead documents signed by Tim Marcus Clarke, the easiest of which to explain was the one referring to the $200 Million loan to Equiticorp NZ. He read it and I asked him if he knew who the Managing Director of Equiticorp NZ was. He said that he didn’t. I told him “it’s Tim Marcus Clarke” whose signature as SBSA Managing Director he could see at the bottom of the page of the SBSA letterhead document he had just read. I told Dr Fraser that “the more people who knew about this the safer I would feel”. He asked if he could have a photocopy of the document and I said yes he could. I said that there is more, indicating the other SBSA Letterhead documents. He said he didn’t need to know more as he left to photocopy the document. When he returned I asked him if he would please Fax it to ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper. He indicated that he would and referred me to a Psychologist for further testing. I paid the Psychologist $300- for a report that referred to indications of a higher than usual (normal, average, desirable) level of depression and anxiety but that it wasn’t considered a Psychiatric illness. I never personally met that Psychologist. Her opinion was based on a form I had completed answering many multiple choice questions. The report was delivered to Dr Fraser who began to write the report required by my employer.
On about 20 May 1989 a week or two after I last consulted Dr Fraser and while he was writing the required report, a front page news article was published in Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper with the headline “State Bank $200 Mill. Loan to Equitcorp NZ”. About one week later on the 29th May 1989 two employees of the State Bank of SA delivered to my front door a letter terminating my employment. No reason was stated. I returned to Dr Alan Fraser (FRANZCP) and told him that my employment with SBSA had been terminated. He was clearly unhappy (visibly angered) at this news and said, “If that’s the way they want it, I’ll refer you to my friend and colleague Dr Howard Gorton FRANZCP whom I would like you to consult”. Dr Fraser said that “he didn’t involve himself in politics”. I wasn’t sure what he meant by that. I asked Dr Fraser if he had had any communication with my employer SBSA that had no legitimate means to know that I had consulted him. He was silent for a few seconds and then said “I may have received a telephone call”.
I arranged an appointment with Dr Howard Gorton whom I consulted from June 1989 to October 1996 after which I met with him on one other occasion in March 1997. During my consultations (every six weeks) with Dr Gorton I provided him with documents (copies of news articles, letters I had received etc.) and discussed the events that I had experienced while employed, newspaper reporting of SBSA’s bankruptcy & other matters & events that we were witnessing.
1989 – During 1989 news of the massive financial fraud and collapse of the National Safety Council of Australia (Victoria – NSCV) began to appear in the news media. Industrial containers throughout the countryside that purportedly contained many millions of dollars of equipment that secured bank loans made to the NSCA Victoria were found to be empty. It was disclosed that loans had for many years been financing the running expenses of the organisation and paying the repayment instalments of previous loans. The NSCA Victoria was a pyramid scheme fraud known in the USA as a Ponzi scheme fraud. After several months as a fugitive from justice NSCA Executive Director John Friedrich was arrested, charged with crimes & allowed bail. In July 1991 he was found dead & said to have committed suicide a few days after the start of his trial for fraud. John Friedrich who had received awards (Medal of the Order of Australia OAM) & had been given security clearances allowing access to sensitive Australian military sites, was after further investigations found to be Johann Friedrich Hohenberger a citizen of West Germany wanted on fraud charges.
1989 – In Mid 1989 I began to receive an income from the SA State Superannuation Fund (now known as SuperSA) which required that I provide a form with my signature witnessed by a Justice of the Peace. The Member of SA Parliament for my electorate of ‘Waite’ SA was Shadow Treasurer Stephen Baker MP whom I requested witness my signature. He first demanded to know why I was to receive a SA taxpayer funded superannuation early retirement income at the age of thirty two. I told him of the abuse and harassment I had received while employed by the SBSA and details of SBSA mismanagement/maladministration (& bad loans) that were likely to bankrupt the bank and the state of SA. I asked him to raise issues of SBSA debt and maladministration in SA’s parliament in order to expose the problem and limit SA taxpayers’ burden of public debt liabilities. He undoubtedly understood the SBSA management impropriety that I disclosed to him, reluctantly signed the form as a JP witness to my signature as I had requested, dismissed me and said that he was busy. I returned several times begging him to use his parliamentary privilege as an MP to ask questions concerning the inevitable financial disaster SA faced, until eventually he said that he was too frightened to do so because “he would be accused of politicising the bank”. He knew the financial disaster would discredit the ALP state government & eventually allow his political party to win the state election without his doing anything. He said I “should come to see him when he was in government”. On occasions that I returned to his office located at the local shopping centre, he appeared to summon the police who arrived within minutes. When we saw each other in the local Mitcham shopping centre, he would run off. After the December 1993 SA state election Stephen Baker MP became SA Treasurer. Stephen Baker was a SA member of parliament for 15 years after which he retired on a very generous taxpayer funded pension.

Judgment by: Fullagar J. of Supreme Court of Victoria Judgment Commonwealth Bank of Australia and Bank of New Zealand (BNZ Securities) successfully retrieve $46,000,000 from Pro-Image Studios with “payment of92,684,398 fully paid ordinary shares of 50c each – Mr Nettle for the Australian Securities Commission supported the making of the declaration that for a consideration consisting of the release of the immediately enforceable debt amounting to $46,342,199 due to the defendants by the plaintiff, will not constitute an issue of shares at a discount within the meaning of the Corporations Law”.
“The company is insolvent. If it were now wound up its shareholders and unsecured creditors would receive nothing while the 2 secured banks would receive something like 91c in the dollar.”
“About 2800 shares in the company have so far been issued and they have been trading on the stock exchange at prices around 5c per share up to the time of the hearing in the Practice Court. If the proposed conversion of debt to equity is carried out, it will bring about a surplus of assets over liabilities arising from the elimination from the liabilities of the debt of $46m-odd and an increase of the same amount in shareholders’ equity, having the effect of creating a real net asset value for all of the issued shares.” ……… “It therefore appears that the proposed issue of shares to the 2 defendant banks will be greatly to the benefit of shareholders and unsecured creditors.”………..“The only anxiety I have felt about the present case, in addition to that occasioned by my differing from another judge, is upon the question whether all the relevant facts are before me with sufficient precision to justify a declaration in the form sought. The original court file has been “lost” but all the parties appearing before me, including the Australian Securities Commission, have assured me that the substitute file of documents put before me is accurate and adequate.”

News media reporting false, misleading and deceptive
5 October 1989 – On the 5 October 1989 a large photograph of Marino Rocks marina developer William Turner appeared on the front page of Adelaide SA’s News Ltd. afternoon daily tabloid newspaper under the headline “The man behind SA’s great marina fiasco”. The news article with its photograph appeared to imply that William Turner, lying down and “resting at Adelaide Airport”, was drunk. He had come to Adelaide to announce that he was bankrupt. (file ‘Turner 5 Oct 1989 Adelaide PM News Ltd’ see documents below)
The newspaper article states “Two of his major interests W and B Turner and Crestwin Corporation, were earlier this week put into receivership. W and B Turner, which was put into receivership by the State Bank of Victoria, had a major interest in Mintern, a company established by Mr Turner specifically to handle the marina project. That interest was last week sold out to another Victorian firm, the Burloch Group of companies. The Burloch Group has several major contracts in the eastern States, but relatively unknown in SA. It is understood the company’s principal Mr Alan Burloch has not personally visited the Marino Rocks site. Acquisition of the project came to “quite a few millions”, according to Mr Burloch who plans to be in Adelaide for talks with the government on Tuesday.” “Opposition legal affairs spokesman, Mr Griffin, said today recent events placed a question mark over the government’s competence to put together major developments. This was particularly so because the Premier Mr Bannon, had only three weeks ago in Parliament said there was no information that “in any way questions the financial viability of Crestwin. As to the financial substance of the principals and owners, we have made our own investigations and we are quite satisfied”. It also says that an unidentified “spokesman for the Premier said today there had been no financial loss to taxpayers so far, nor was there likely to be any.”
Burloch (Burloch Group of companies that is largely* owned by the State Bank of SA through ‘Kabani’) who partly owns Crestwin (that “had a major interest in Mintern” owned by Burloch) and is largely* owned by the State Bank of SA through ‘Kabani’, purchased Turner’s “major interests” in Crestwin that is largely* owned by the State Bank of SA through ‘Kabani’. (*largely possibly entirely)
The State Bank of SA purchased for “quite a few millions” something that it already owned, with the only reference to any bank being the State Bank of Victoria (SBV) who purportedly put W and B Turner into receivership.(Did “quite a few millions” return to SBSA/BFC to repay/conceal debt associated with William Turner?)
The news article continues and quotes SA Parliamentary Opposition legal affairs spokesman, Mr Griffin –“there must also be a question mark over the ability of Mintern to dispose of its assets because of the charge over Mr Turner’s private company by the State Bank of Victoria.”
Australian bankruptcy laws don’t allow people who are bankrupt to sell their assets.
In Turner’s case the State Bank of Victoria would of course act to prevent the sale of his assets if Turner owed them money. The only scenario the bankruptcy court & SBV would not stop the sale of his assets would be if Turner was not at that time bankrupt or/and his creditors were not the State Bank of Victoria but were the State Bank of SA (the information given to me in 1986) with SBSA management attempting to retrieve and conceal the facts of its bad debts.
While Adelaide’s newspaper publisher News Ltd. considered Turner’s announcement of his bankruptcy was newsworthy for the afternoon daily tabloid the ‘News’ that didn’t question the credibility of the information they were purportedly given [by a source it does not identify]and had published, the morning broadsheet ‘The Advertiser’ published by the same News Ltd newspaper publisher, never mentioned it at all. If there was a SA government announcement concerning Alan Burloch’s “talks with the government on Tuesday” nothing was considered newsworthy by any Adelaide news media. Nothing more was published in Adelaide’s newspapers (News Ltd. state monopoly newspaper publisher) about the Marino Rocks marina and its developers until 18 December 1990 (see below) when Alan Burloch with tax problems – withdrew from Marino Rocks marina development.
State MP for my electorate SA Shadow Treasurer Stephen Baker knew of the State Bank of SA Marino Rocks marina developers connection and Turner’s debt to the SBSA but said nothing while his parliamentary college Opposition legal affairs spokesman, Mr Griffin criticised the ALP state government of Premier/Treasurer John Bannon over the marina development incompetency issues but apparently failed to follow through on promises to pursue the issues of government incompetence.
I know the information referring to William Turner being bankrupt at that time in October 1989 & reference to his being forced into bankruptcy by the State Bank of Victoria is false. Turner’s bankruptcy file (Victoria 1085 of 1990 in the next financial year ending 30 June 1991) began 6th July 1990 and ended 6th July 1993.
6 October 1989 – On the 6 October 1989 I received a phone call from my former employer SBSA(that had terminated my employment 29 May 1989)and was advised that “the bank had just paid my Mortgage Loan in full and I could have the title to my home back in three months’ time”. I said that it takes less than a week to discharge property title deeds securing a Mortgage Loan and that I’d like the document back within a week. I discovered that $5000- in interest had been added to the loan amount over the previous 3- 4 months. An annual interest rate of about 30% per year had been applied to the loan. I collected the title deed to my home about a week later.
November 1989 – By the end of 1989 I rarely went out at night because I appeared to be stalked by aggressive unidentified people for the previous few years. In November 1989 I had a visit from an old acquaintance that I preferred not to have at my home because I understood that he was inclined to return to a house he visits and steal anything of value he had seen. We went into the city where I intended to leave him. At a city hotel I had just entered I was grabbed by a large muscle bound security staff person, had my arms held behind my back and was dropped on my face. I was arrested as I regained consciousness, taken to the Adelaide Police watch-house, fingerprinted by a young PC who I recognised as one of my stalkers (later identified as PC Les Shearn ‘Home Invader’ seen later 10 July 1992), as another man in grey overalls (later in 1994 identified Grant Gittos also a ‘Home Invader July 1992 & a stalker of the previous few years whom I had seen with a man later identified as Frank Carbone) attempted to provoke me (bending my fingers back) into assaulting him. I was not photographed, most likely because of the damage that was done to my face. I was charged with ‘failure to cease loitering’ and appeared in the Adelaide magistrates Courts on five occasions over the next ten months until the SA Police was finally ordered by the court Judge to name the complainant in the matter, and the charge was dropped. The complainant’s name, according to SA police, was Paul Pickup whom I discovered was registered as hotel security staff with SA’s Commercial Tribunal using a false address where he was unknown to the occupants.
1990s – During the 1990s I read Adelaide’s daily News Ltd. newspaper (a SA newspaper publishing monopoly) & watched TV news & current events programs everyday seeking information on the State Bank of SA (bankruptcy) and the Marino Rocks marina. Nothing of the information I was aware of from being employed as a SBSA bank officer was published or broadcast.
1990 In early 1990 South Australian Legal Services Commission (LSC) appointed Adelaide lawyer Richard John of law firm Duncan Groom & Hannon (DGH- Terry Groom MP SA) to represent me in a Workcover (SA workers compensation) claim against my former employer) the State Bank of South Australia. The LSC refused to change the lawyer after I advised of a conflict of interest over what I intended to disclose as SBSA’s management/administration motivation for my harassment & abuse in the workplace.
DGH employed “an independent barrister” David Bamford, to address issues of the conflict of interest”. In December 1990 (Christmas – News Year) a front page news article of ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper announced that MP Terry Groom had been appointed a Minister (with a Ministerial portfolio) by SA Premier/Treasurer John Bannon. That news articles has since been erased from public library records of newspapers published. “Independent barrister” David Bamford became the ALP endorsed candidate for Terry Groom’s electorate of ‘Hartley’ for the December 1993 SA state election.
Kabani – “Off Balance Sheet” entity of State Bank of South Australia
2 October 1990 – On the 2 October 1990 Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ published on page two, a news article under the headline “State Bank silent on mystery firm” by Colin James – (file name ‘3.Kabani.2.10.90’ see below) which was the first ever public mention that the bank had any “Off Balance Sheet” companies [entities] or that such a thing could be possible. The third sentence of the news article refers to “a report in The Advertiser which said the state opposition had vowed to further probe the reasons for the existence of Kabani.” No such news article was ever published by The Advertiser newspaper. While I was aware of the State Bank of SA connection to, and debt regarding, the Marino Rocks marina and saw the multiple level involvement of SBSA Chairman David Simmons also a Director of ‘Kabani’ (& law firm Thompson Simmons & Co. involved) as the problem of concern, I did not know that ‘Kabani’ had “Off Balance Sheet” status and would have thought that to have been impossible. [Illegal under SBSA’s accounting requirements]
No further news media mention was ever made of SBSA “Off Balance Sheet” ownership (never detailed) of ‘Kabani’. This 2 October 1990 news article “State Bank silent on mystery firm” refers to SBSA/BFC not being entitled to consider Kabani as an “Off Balance Sheet” entity with reduced Australian financial reporting law enforcement authority reporting requirements. [The “Off Balance Sheet” of SBSA status of ‘Kabani’ was illegal.]
The Australian national financial reporting law enforcement authorities the National Companies and Securities Commission and the Corporate Affairs Commission in 1991 became the Australian Securities Commission (ASC) that soon changed its name to the Australian Securities and Investment Commission ASIC. The ASC (now ASIC) should have but did not pursue any issues of SBSA accounting impropriety & prosecutions for crimes of the SBSA management failures to comply with ASC enforced Australian financial regulation laws. Doing so would have highlighted SBSA debt that became public debt. SBSA’s failure to comply with financial reporting laws and failure of law enforcement authorities to enforce laws, created billions of dollars of SBSA bankruptcy debt that became public debt that is still concealed within the SA Assets Management Corporation (SAAMC – SA State Treasury) that consolidated SBSA’s bad debt into public liability before the bank (what remained of any good assets) was sold.
News Ltd.’s (SA state monopoly newspaper publisher) ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper claimed ignorance of State Bank of SA bankruptcy debt that had bankrupted the state of South Australia while also claiming that it knew more of SBSA debt matters than SBSA management and taking credit for eventually exposing the problem of SBSA’s accumulating debt. (see news articles below – ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper 11 Feb 1991 page 6 & other)
News Ltd. news media has published false & misleading information [the ‘News’ newspaper W B Turner 5 Oct. 1989] and conspired with politicians, governments and law enforcement authorities to conceal crimes that created the billions of dollars of still unaccounted for public debt. SA members of parliament of opposing political parties have together acted to deceive the public rather than to keep each other honest.
Rupert Murdoch who began his news media empire in South Australia (the afternoon daily tabloid the ‘News’ was his first newspaper) has had News Ltd. news media manipulate & intimidate politicians and has published news articles falsely claiming to have published information that it has not, in order to create the false impression of good investigative journalism that benefits the public. The citizens of South Australia gave Rupert Murdoch the opportunity to begin his now international news media empire. Rupert Murdoch has betrayed South Australians and is a traitor to those who were & are dependent on his news media to act in the best interests and common good of his news media’s readers. Mr Murdoch’s need to control the lives of politicians & all Australians has priority over compliance with journalism ethics and news media acceptable codes of conduct.
Only much later (2004 for SBSA news articles*) did I discover that News Ltd. news media has also produced fake records of what it has published (news articles published have been erased from publicly accessible records) to obscure the facts concerning SBSA & government mismanagement, News Ltd.’s failure to pursue public debt issues involving serious crimes that news media were aware of and the creation of circumstances that prevented any questioning of SBSA administration/management decisions that could have resulted in earlier detection and exposure of SBSA crimes and debt that are still concealed by Australian governments and news media.
Rupert Murdoch’s News Ltd. News media, Australian government(s), law enforcement, prominent member of the legal profession, politicians & political parties knew that State Bank of SA [with illegal “Off Balance Sheet” entity ‘Kabani’ being a small part of the debt] had lost many billions of dollars of public money including that lost with its involvement with the Marino Rocks marina development & its developers, and have as their objective, ensuring that the public never know of details of that taxpayer debt and their incompetence, maladministration, crimes and corruption.
Rupert Murdoch, his Australian news media, politicians, governments, law enforcement authorities and the Australian legal profession gain the benefit of concealing their incompetence, maladministration and crimes, by the use of deceit while continuing to extract the greatest benefit for themselves from taxpayers.
Note that the newspaper article published 2 October 1990 headlined “State Bank silent on mystery firm” refers to ‘The Advertiser’ being “unable to find out anything about ‘Kabani’, why it was formed or what it does.” and “the reasons for Kabani’s existence remain a mystery.” and “The opposition reiterated yesterday that it would continue to seek full details of the origins of Kabani and its financial dealings.” and The Premier, Mr Bannon, told parliament last month that Kabani had assets of $100 million and shareholders’ funds of $10,000.”
Former SA Premier/Treasurer John Bannon who either lied to state parliament or inadvertently deceived parliament, is now the Hon Dr John Bannon AO Chairman of the National Archives of Australia Advisory Council & refuses to clarify the issues of his apparent deception of SA Parliament or state if he can or cannot remember the news articles published (e.g. headlined “Billion Dollar Bailout” & many others) while he was SA Premier/Treasurer, that have been erased from public records.
18 December 1990 Burloch tax problems – withdraws from Marino Rocks marina development.
On the 18 December 1990 Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper published a news article under the headline “Marino Rocks project tenderer to face court over tax liabilities”. By political writer Rex Jory
The news article (far from the front page) is somewhat subdued, indirect & incoherent in its message. It states;
“Confusion surrounds the future of the proposed 400-boat marina at Marino Rocks because of an application for the winding up of a Victorian company involved in one of the tender bids.”
“The Australian taxation Office is seeking the order in the Victorian Supreme Court, following the alleged non-payment of about $150,000 in tax by Group Securities Pty Ltd., formerly known as Burloch Group Holdings Pty Ltd. The Liberal Member for ‘Bright’, Mr Matthew, said yesterday that before last year’s state election, the government announced that the Burloch Group would finance the Marino Rocks project.”
SA Premier/Treasurer John Bannon’s response through an unidentified spokesman was “Burloch had been one member of the Burloch Glenvill consortium which proposed a marina at Marino Rocks. He said the Burloch Glenvill group did not own any land on which the proposal was based. Two other South Australian based groups had also expressed interest in similar marina proposals at Marino Rocks but none, including Burloch Glenvill, had received any level of commitment from the government except that their proposal would be considered. The project that Mr Burloch had been involved in had never been approved. Principals of the Melbourne based Glenville Group had recently written to Environment and planning Minister Susan Lenahan expressing continued interest in the project. She had urged the Group to maintain its interest provided it could fulfil criteria set down last year by the Government. In September 1989, Mr Bannon said the Government would not give approval to any group until it could demonstrate it owned the land, had environmental clearance and the financial capacity to carry out the work.”
“It is understood that Mr Burloch, the principal of the former Burloch Group of Companies, is no longer directly involved with Victorian consortium. “ Later the news article also says;
“Mr Mathew said the case against Group Securities, formerly Burloch Group Holdings, was due to be heard in the Victorian Supreme Court on January 30. “The notice of motion states that the company cannot pay its debts,” Mr Mathew said.
1991 January – In January 1991 lawyer Richard John (law firm Duncan, Groom & Hannon) demanded & received $600- from me to continue with my Workcover (SA workers compensation) claim -Bates versus SBSA. I have no doubt that Richard John’s intention was to have me discontinue my claim against the State Bank of SA – rather than pay him $600- and give up my opportunity to, in recorded sworn testimony, describe my experiences while employed & give an account of the SBSA maladministration information (“Off Balance Sheet” Kabani details & debt still concealed) that motivated my former employer’s harassment & abuses in my workplaces. [I gave my sworn testimony in July 1991 – I was to discover that it was edited from the records of proceedings of the forum in which I gave it]
1991 – During the first two months of 1991 the first of Adelaide SA ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper articles indicating a SA state financial problem with SBSA appeared as a front page newspaper article headlined “Billion Dollar Bailout”. That news article has been erased from the publicly accessible Australian library records of newspapers published. A front page news article dated 11 February 1991 headlined “Taxpayers rescue bank”, published a few days after the “Billion Dollar Bailout” headline, is now, according to the altered records, the first indication of the State Bank of SA having any financial difficulties.
11 February 1991 The amended (altered) records of Australian newspapers published that are sold by Australian public libraries as archives of newspapers published still has within them as published on
11 February 1991 page 6 of Adelaide’s News Ltd.’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper (file ’11 Feb 1991 pg 6 SBSA’ – with a news article headlined “Warning signs were there for more than 14 months” (that was published on paper in early 1991) that has within it, references to previously published news articles headlined “State Bank loans setback”, “58 firms in State Bank web”, “our companies in the red – State Bank” and within the text references to previous news articles regarding SBSA “Off Balance Sheet” (OBS)companies. The news article ““Warning signs were there for more than 14 months” text does infer but does not specifically state when the articles were published. I know that they were not published before the January 1991. They do not now appear as published on any date at all, according to the records of Australian newspapers published sold as archives by Australian state and national public libraries (the fake newspaper archives) even though the news article headlined “Warning signs were there for more than 14 months” must be considered as evidence that they were published at some point in time. The text of the news articles states;
“Dec 5 The bank admitted the group had 58 off-balance-sheet (OBS) companies, not 4 as people had at first been lead to believe. Mr. Clark said the OBS companies had assets of $358 Million, against liabilities of $267 Million. Fifty-three of the companies were associated with Beneficial.
Mr. Clark appealed to the Opposition not to politicise the bank.
Dec. 7 – The bank changed its story and admitted that the OBS companies were not in the black as first claimed but $31 million in the red.
December 8 The Advertiser revealed many of the off-balance-sheet companies might not qualify as such because they were subsidiaries and therefore should have been included in the group balance sheet from the day they were created. It also revealed that the way some of them were structured, they could be used to hide losses and bad loans.
December 11 – The bank was revealed as part of a four-bank consortium owed a total of $1.2 billion by the collapsed Fairfax media empire. The state Bank’s exposure was the least of the four banks.
The latest doubtful debt came on top of exposures to the National Safety Council (Victoria), Equiticorp, the Chase Corporation, Girvan, Quintex, the Hooker Group and $180 million exposure to the troubled Adsteam Corporation – to name just a few.” ………… and later in the article;
“December 13 – The Premier, Mr. Bannon, in a ministerial statement to parliament, said the State Bank no longer knew what constituted an off-balance-sheet entity and therefore did not know how many it had. He said the reason for the confusion was new accounting standards which had yet to be interpreted.” (End of text of news article)
This newspaper articles reference to “December 13 – The Premier, Mr. Bannon, (in a) ministerial statement to parliament” referring to the “confusion” over “what constituted an off-balance-sheet entity” was never previously mentioned in any news article published by ‘The Advertiser’ or broadcast by news media and has never been referred to since these news articles of 11 February 1991. The Australian Securities Commission (ASC now ASIC) appears never to have pursued issues of any associated ASC reporting requirement accounting improprieties and illegalities.
This newspaper article headlined “Warning signs were there for more than 14 months” (file ’11 Feb 1991 pg 6 SBSA’ is still preserved within Australian public libraries record) also has a section that refers to, in arranged cut-outs of headlines of the previous weeks, “State bank in Loans setback” by David Hellaby, “58 Firms in State Bank web” *and “Our companies in red – State Bank” by David Hellaby, that have no reference dates to when they were published. ‘The Advertiser ‘newspaper articles headlined referred to above are not now within Australian and foreign public library records of Australian newspapers published that are sold as authentic archives. Text within the newspaper article refer to previous news articles published and states :
“In December the debate boiled over: December 5 – The bank admitted the group had 58 off-balance-sheet (OBS) companies, not four as people had first been led to believe. Mr Clark said that the OBS companies had assets of $359 million, against liabilities of $267 million. Fifty-three of the companies were associated with Beneficial. Mr. Clark appealed to the Opposition not to policies the bank. Dec 7 – The bank changed its story and admitted the OBS companies were not in the black as first claimed but $31 million in the red. December 8 – ‘The Advertiser revealed many of the off-balance sheet companies might not qualify as such because they were legally subsidiaries and therefore should have been included in the group balance sheet from the day they were created. It also revealed that the way some of them were structured, they could have been used to hide bad debt and losses.” (The references to December 8 was never published at any time – the references to the news articles now referred to as published on December 5 and December 7 were published but not on those dates& not before January 1991) These news articles do not now appear in any publicly accessible (library) records of Australian newspapers published and have been erased from those records.
These news articles refer to State Bank of SA “Off Balance Sheet” debt that is now public debt never accounted for that relates to the Marino Rocks marina development & developers concealed relationship to SBSA and the concealed debt of William Turner.
The news articles published (& the fake – public libraries version) make no reference to the front page news article headline “State Bank $200 Mill. Loan to Equiticorp NZ” published May 1989 that has also been erased from public library records of newspapers published. * My recollection was that the article “58 Firms in State Bank web” was published in January 1991 and definitely after the December 1990 (Christmas – New Year) front page news article announcing that Terry Groom MP had been appointed as SA government minister by Premier/Treasurer John Bannon which has also been erased from public library records of Australian newspapers published.
Evidence of crimes and corruption
The above text of the news article “Warning signs were there for more than 14 months” still preserved within Australian public libraries records is evidence of news articles that have been published. The fact that these news articles are missing from the publicly accessible records demonstrates the corruption of those records. File ‘Pg 7 SBSA 11 Feb 1991’ –
Page 7 news article of 11 January 1991 with headlines “ ‘Deep-seated woes’ blamed on recession” by journalist jenny Turner and news article headlined “How SA will fund bank’s rescue” not attributed to any journalist refer to
“ ‘Deep-seated woes’ blamed on recession” quotes SBSA Chairman (also BFC & “Off Balance Sheet” ‘Kabani’ Director) David Simmons – (text below is as published)
“He said “management problems” and the fact that the State Bank board had been supplied with “inaccurate and/or deficient’ information were also to blame.”
‘He said that the government had placed $970 Million in a special account available to be drawn upon against future losses for the group.’ “The group’s ultimate call upon these funds may be a lesser amount and actual losses may not be realized for some time. Under financial arrangements, the group will repay the State Government from future profits” he said.
Mr Simmons said the independent review by J. P. Morgan into the group’s lending procedures and practices had prompted a full review of the bank’s operations. The review found non-accrual loans – non-performing loans from which the bank makes no money – could reach $2.5 billion.
He said the rapid rise in non-accrual loans had several causes.” And
“The full extent of the consequences have come to light only in the last few weeks, following the J.P. Morgan review.
“Additionally, other management problems have become evident.
“The handling of some of the group’s acquisitions was not of an acceptable standard.
“There were, in some cases, shortcomings in due diligence processes, which failed to identify faults in the acquired companies, with the result that the management was too slow to take effective control.
“The weaknesses that have now been exposed did not develop recently. They were a legacy of the group’s entry into the wholesale lending markets at a time of continuingly rising asset prices in the second half of the 1980’s.
“The risk profile of the group was, in hindsight, unwise, but this was disguised by the benign economic conditions of the day.”
Mr. Simmonds said the bank’s problems had emerged at “such a pace that it had been difficult for the management and the board to identify and control them.”
“It is apparent that the board’s ability to oversee the effect of management decisions has been clouded from time to time by information, that with the benefit of hindsight can now be seen, was inaccurate and/or deficient.
“As a result the board and the Government were not at all times fully informed.
“The board regrets that the Government was placed in this position.
“The problem loans covered by the Governments assistance are predominantly within the corporate division of the bank and Beneficial Finance Corporation.”
He said the steps in place to restore the bank’s performance included:
SPECIAL measures to get the best recovery of non-performing loans.
ACCELERATION of a lengthy and complex overhaul of the entire credit processes.
DEVELOPMENT of new strategies and a review of all operations to eliminate those activities not capable of achieving acceptable profits.
A MAJOR cost-reduction program to optimise the balance between income and expenditure.
A FOCUS on portfolio structuring to minimize risk.
“Intensive management effort” would be directed into rebuilding the bank’s major subsidiary, Beneficial Finance, with the motive of improving its performance.
Page 7 news article of 11 January 1991 with headline “How SA will fund the bank’s rescue” that is not attributed to any journalist reads (Text below is as published)
“Internal juggling of the State government’s assets has enabled it to free up the $970 million used to rescue the bank.”
“Mortgages belonging to the Housing and Construction Department have been “sold” to the South Australian Government Financing Authority (SAFA) for the sum required. “
“The mortgages were lent by the Government under the HomeStart” (rest of sentence illegible on scanned copy)
“The funds raised have been placed into a special account, known as the State Bank of South Australia Asset Valuation Reserve Account, at the State Treasury. Already $500 million has been paid” (rest of line is illegible on scanned copy) “account will be supplemented as needed. A State Bank advisory group, consisting of bank chairman Mr David Simmons, chief executive Mr Stephen Paddison, under-treasurer Mr Peter Emery and the crown solicitor Mr Brad Selway will supervise the work necessary to ensure the structure and operation of the bank is correct.
“The ongoing cost to the government is in servicing nearly $1 billion it has now made available to the bank.”
http://www.adelaidenow.com.au/news/the-best-i-could-do-was-not-good-enough/story-e6frebt3-1111118975187 ‘The best I could do was not good enough’ published 27 Feb 2009 An interview with SA former Premier/Treasurer [until September 1992] John Bannon- refers to an understated “$3 billion” debt to SA. Mr Bannon says “It was certainly a public matter and so it should have been,” Bannon says. “There was no point in hiding or minimising what was an acute situation.” “I wasn’t interested in writing memoirs or tedious explanations or defences of my record,” he says. “I don’t think that’s the place of someone who has been in public life. Many see it as their duty but the end result is unfortunately often self-serving, defensive and not terribly enlightening. Better for others to comment and probe.”
In 2011 former South Australian Premier and Treasurer John Bannon historian and archivist [Dr John Bannon AO Adjunct Professor of the Adelaide Law School] was appointed Chairman of the National Archives of Australia Advisory Council. http://blogs.adelaide.edu.au/law/2011/05/31/the-hon-dr-john-bannon-newly-appointed-chair-of-the-national-archives-of-australia-advisory-council/ “Dr Bannon joins the Adelaide Law School Dean, Professor John Williams, as a member of the Advisory Council”
Historian John Bannon and Adelaide Law School Dean, Professor John Williams both refuse to indicate their recollection of events of Adelaide’s history that occurred when John Bannon was SA Premier/Treasurer, the bankruptcy of the State Bank of South Australia [‘Billion Dollar Bailout’ front page newspaper headline erased] and the NCA bombing murder of a policemen and news media reporting of them.
After the 1991 disclosure of SBSA’s bankruptcy the SA government announced that there would be a Royal Commission of Inquiry into the mismanagement of the State Bank of SA that would disclose how billions of dollars was lost & where it went.
That the State Bank of South Australia Chairman of the Board of Directors David Simmons – also a Director of Beneficial Finance Corporation (BFC wholly owned by SBSA) & a Director of ‘Kabani’ (disclosed as “Off Balance Sheet” of SBSA/BFC) – had overseen the SBSA Board’s last ever decision to grant themselves unlimited taxpayer funded legal representation while he claimed to have been provided with information that “was inaccurate and/or deficient” & was potentially facing criminal charges (& would need to appear before the Royal Commission inquiry into the SBSA), but was appointed to a “State Bank advisory group” to manage “the State Bank of South Australia Asset Valuation Reserve Account” (the bailout funding) would seem extraordinary, but it was never questioned in any news media.
Within a few months the terms of reference of Royal Commission into SBSA mismanagement were changed. It would not investigate & publicly disclose how the billions of dollars were lost & where it went. The SA Auditor General was instead to produce a secret report purportedly accounting for SBSA’s losses that became taxpayer debt. Over several years fifty million dollars was consumed by the SBSA Royal Commission that eventually concluded that “stupidity was not a crime”.
It is inconceivable that Chairman of the Board of SBSA (Director of BFC & “Off Balance Sheet” ‘Kabani’) David Simmons and others including SBSA chief executive Mr Stephen Paddison, SA Premier/Treasurer John Bannon, SA Shadow Treasurer Stephen Baker MP and Adelaide’s News Ltd. news media did not know of and failed to understand that the State Bank of SA was bankrupt and had ever increasing bad debt liabilities concealed by ever increasing valuations of assets (that were in fact liabilities)long before the February 1991 announcement of the need for a SA taxpayer bailout to save the bank.
My sworn testimony erased from records of proceedings July 1991
July 1991 In July 1991 I gave my sworn testimony to Workcover Review (Bates versus SBSA). After having waited for more than two years I gave my sworn testimony (recorded by court reporters Sparks and Cannon) and referred to the harassment & abuse that I received in the SBSA workplace. When I began to refer to the still as yet not publicly disclosed loans to & questionable SBSA relationships with the developers of the Marino Rocks marina, William Turner & Alan Burloch & SBSA’s ownership of their companies, lawyer for the SBSA Tess Carabelas began to hammer her pen on the table & shout “objection”. The Sparks & Cannon court reporter employee running the tape recorders could hear something through her headphones but at first appeared not to know what it was and did not react. She looked up & saw the SBSA lawyer, appeared to recognise her behaviour as a signal and began to press buttons on the 2 recording machines, one being reel to reel the other being overlapping dual cassettes.
The law firm Duncan, Groom and Hannon (ALP politicians – Terry Groom MP was a SA government Minister) had appointed “an independent barrister” named David Bamford to purportedly address the problem of a conflict of interest in representing me, knowing that I intended to refer to the never publicly disclosed SBSA/BFC [“Off Balance Sheet” Kabani) links & bad loans related to the Marion Rocks marina development. David Bamford later during 1992 said that he could recall my sworn testimony referring to the workplace abuse I received that I understood was due to my expressing my concern over SBSA’s questionable corporate loans and marina development ownership arrangements. Bamford claimed that the information wasn’t irrelevant so the editing of my sworn testimony was reasonable & acceptable. Law firm Duncan, Groom and Hannon, lawyer Richard John, barrister David Bamford and the WorkCover Corporation all claimed not to know how I could access the record of proceedings at which I had given my sworn testimony. (see March 1992 below for my access to the false records of proceedings)
I lodged a complaint with the SA Legal Practitioner Complaint Board (SALPCB) over the ‘conflict of interest’ of Duncan, Groom and Hannon’s, lawyer Richard John’s & barrister David Bamford’s representation of me & their apparent involvement in editing (falsifying) the record of my July 1991 sworn testimony & claims to have lost my documentation that was never returned. As a result DGH was eventually forced to repay me $600- Richard John had demanded & received from me. The SALPCB (administrators Matthew Young & Margaret Bonesmo) ignored the ‘conflict of interest’ issues of DGH within my complaint.
When attempting to retrieve documents I had provided to lawyer Richard John & Duncan, Groom & Hannon I received two letters claiming, 1. that they had been lost and 2. that they were then found and returned as enclosures to their DGH correspondence. There were no ‘enclosures’ to DGH correspondence to me, as claimed. File names ‘DGH.R.John 7.11.91 doc.s lost’ & ‘DGH.R.John 19.3.1992’ SA Police refused to allow me to report solicitor Richard John’s fraud of receiving money from me by the use of deceit.
6 March 1992 – In the first few days of March 1992 a SA WorkCover (Workers compensation administration organisation) employee informed me that I could listen to the recording of the July 1991 WorkCover Review hearing at which I had given sworn testimony. On the 6 March 1992 I listened to a Sparks & Cannon court reporters tape recording, purportedly said to be an accurate record of my sworn testimony given in July 1991. The recording was not an accurate account of what I had said. There was only one set of tapes, the overlapping cassettes set – that did not overlap & not the larger reel to reel tape that was intended to continuously record the entire proceedings to ensure that everything was recorded. Any transcript of proceedings was worthless to me. My attempt to obtain my sworn testimony account of my experiences while employed by the State Bank of SA had failed and had become an experience of the corruption and crimes of my legal representatives.
Within a week of my March 1992 discovery of the editing of my July 1991 sworn testimony I lodged a complaint with SA’s WorkCover Corporation. While delivering my letter of complaint to WorkCover’s Adelaide Weymouth Street office I saw the burnt out upper floor of an office building very nearby on the same street. It took me a few seconds to realize that it was the remains of the 2 March 1992 National Crime Authority (NCA) bomb blast crime site where NCA Police Officer Geoffrey Bowen had been killed & another NCA employee had been badly injured. Adelaide is a small, quiet city. Australia had never before experienced any crime such as this bombing murder of a federal law enforcement officer. For several weeks the event was front page news of newspapers and the main story of television news. Adelaide newspapers reported the arrest of the alleged bomber & his name Dominic Pere, within weeks of the police officer’s death.
WorkCover, after several months, eventually advised me that they considered there to be “Insufficient justification for further investigation” of my complaint of the editing of my sworn testimony given in July 1991.
After discovering that my sworn testimony of July 1991 had been removed from the records of proceedings of the Workcover Review hearing I sought the assistance of the SA Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission [SA HREOC is of the Australian federal HREOC] and was interviewed by HREOC Officer Gordon Nuttall whom I recognised as being employed by the State Bank of SA [Saving Bank of SA] while I was employed as a SBSA bank officer. Gordon Nuttall was the bank’s Australian Labor Party liaison for the bank. As a SA HREOC Officer he advised me that the HREOC would not assist me in regard to my sworn testimony being removed from the records of proceedings of the July 1991 Workcover Review hearing. [Gordon Nuttall of SBSA’s management and the SA HREOC is the same Gordon Nuttall MP for the Queensland electorate of ‘Sandgate’ elected 19september 1992 & Minister for Health from February 2004 until July 2005 when he began to be investigated for crimes of corruption for which he was eventually jailed.
During early 1992 when it appeared that details of SBSA bankruptcy SA public debt & associated crimes was unlikely to ever be publicly disclosed, I contacted Adelaide News Ltd. ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper journalist David Hellaby who had written news articles concerning SBSA’s bankruptcy and “Billion Dollar Bailout” by taxpayers. I expected that he could discover & expose the SBSA Kabani – Marino Rocks marina developers – William Turner – connection & associated public debt. I suggested that “he should if he could, view the bankruptcy file for Marino Rocks marina developer William Turner”. He said that he would. In early July 1992 I again contacted Hellaby to ask if he had done so. He said that he had & he was interested in further talking to me. I invited him to my home. He said that he could speak to me at my home on Monday 13 July 1992. I was interested in knowing what he had discovered, assuming that he was now aware of William Turner’s SBSA connection & debt.
June 1992 On the 22 June 1992 I lodged a complaint with the SA Police Complaints Authority (PCA) concerning SA Police refusal to allow me to report solicitor Richard John’s fraud of having received money from me by the use of deceit, the editing of my July 1991 sworn testimony given to Workcover review & Workcover’s refusal to investigate it. (see file letter ‘PCA 2.11.1992’)
On the night of Friday 10 July 1992 at 8-00 PM a SA police officer young constable (one of my stalkers of previous years) came to the front door of my home by himself. He reluctantly came inside after very loudly acting with the obvious intention of having me demand that he leave, to which I insisted that he come inside and explain why he was there. He identified himself as Police Constable Les Shearn and claimed to have come to my home by himself to “conduct a search for guns”. Being by himself & having no authorisation to search my home (a search warrant), I requested that he leave, telephoned his police station, explained the circumstances to a police officer identified as Sargent Coxhead & had the Sargent speak with the police constable, after which the PC hung up the telephone and consented to leave my home. I immediately again telephoned the police station to seek an explanation for what was clearly not a SA police authorised attendance at my home. Within 2 minutes of PC Shearn leaving there was another knock at the front door of my home, I excused myself from the phone keeping the line connected and answered the door.
The constable had returned with several people, some being stalkers of previous years, who forced their way inside. The leader of the gang said that “It was suspicious that I had refused to allow PC Shearn search my home for guns so he was therefore justified in using his general search warrant to enter my home & conduct a search”. The ‘Home Invaders’ scattered throughout my house but did not enter the one room where my mother was and in which I had placed the pet dog (a small/medium size terrier) which, if they had entered, would have attacked them. I found two of the ‘Home Invaders’ in my bedroom in the possession of a bag of my documents which I then took from them and placed in the room protected by the dog. I was later to discover that the ‘Home Invaders’ had stolen every State Bank of SA letterhead document that they could find. Documents given to the SA PCA relating to my June 1992 complaint to the SA Police Complaints Authority had been stolen.
The ‘home invaders’ came upon some cannabis when searching my home & very reluctantly provided me with a receipt. The person in charge (said he was Detective Dunstan – later identified in 1994 as Detective Grant Gittos) said that I wouldn’t be charged with a crime if I didn’t lodge a complaint with the SA Police Complaints Authority (SA PCA). I was forced to sign a hand written statement (written by Constable Shearn who was left handed) while a large aggressive man stood over me with a large black torch making threatening gestures, before a more senior police officer (unidentified & in a more elaborate uniform) arrived who was clearly angered by the ‘Home Invaders’ actions – the ‘Home Invaders’ behaviour indicated they knew that they were caught committing crimes & acting corruptly – before they all consented to my demands that they leave my home.
More detail of the 10 July 1992 ‘Home Invasion’ will be posted to a future blog.
13 July 1992 – I had no SBSA letterhead documentation to show journalist David Hellaby when he came to my home the following Monday 13 July 1992. When I met Hellaby I asked him what he had discovered about William Turner’s bankruptcy file. He said that “it was the most amazing document that he had ever seen” & “the bankruptcy file referred to “Turner’s $30 Million debt but gave no information identifying his creditors”.
My later further inquiries to the Victorian* bankruptcy court confirmed that William Edward Turner’s bankruptcy file 1085 of 1990 began on the 6 July 1990 (to end 6 July 1993) & indicated a $30 Million debt with no reference to his creditors. [The Victorian* bankruptcy court at first refused to speak with me without my providing a bankruptcy file number – I obtained the file number & its start date 6 July 1990 from a helpful SA bankruptcy court employee who clearly had not been instructed to deny inquirers information. It seems she may have had access to a computerized national network of information.]
July 1992 – On 21 July 1992 I returned to the SA Police Complaints Authority office to lodge another complaint. During September 1992 I received another late night visit from two people claiming to be SA Police Officers named Tank & Strange who claimed to be investigating my SA PCA complaints. The officers were unavailable for any, more reasonably timed, daytime contact. The PCA later gave me verbal advice that Tank & Strange had written a secret report exonerating SA Police from any impropriety.
I requested that the SA Police Complaints Authority provide me with copies of the tape recorded interviews (& documents that I had provided) that were the records of my complaints on 22 June 1992 and 21 July 1992. The PCA in a letter dated 2 November 1992 claimed to have used “defective” recording equipment during those interviews, despite the PCA officers having in my presence checked that their recording equipment was working prior to the interviews taking place. (see letters ‘PCA 2.11.1992’, ‘PCA SAPOL IIB Tank Strange 13 Aug 1997’ & ‘PCA 30.3.2005.Wainwright’)
After receiving the SA Police Complaint Authority (PCA) letter dated 2 November 1992) claiming to have used “defective” recording equipment to accept my complaints of 22 June 1992 and 21 July 1992, I wrote to SA Police Commissioner David Hunt & SA Minister for Police Kym Mayes MP requesting that they acknowledge the letter’s existence, the impropriety & maladministration of the PCA the letter indicates & other related issues of crimes, corruption & maladministration.
After having received no responses I made further telephone inquiries & requests that they respond. I was arrested (misuse of a telecommunications device –a commonwealth offense) for allegedly making an unspecified threat to a staff member employed by Police Minister Kym Mayes, and in February 1993 arrested for ‘Threaten Life’ of Police Commissioner David Hunt during November 1992. SA Police Commissioners (David Hunt until Sept. 1996 & Mal Hyde since then) & other authorities have never acknowledged that PCA correspondence. The arresting officer was always the same person (stalker/home invader) later in 1994 identified as Detective Grant Gittos who never had any interest in questioning me. I was allowed bail until trial. I was in 1993 convicted of ‘misuse of a telecommunications device’ after a federal prosecutor gave testimony on behalf a staff member of Police Minister Kym Mayes’s office. I was allowed bail and not until mid-1994 did I go to trial for ‘Threaten Life’ of SA Police Commissioner David Hunt.
May – June 1993 – During May of 1993 I received a summons to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates’ court on a charge of ‘possess cannabis’ in June 1993. After receiving the summons I had an interview with lawyer Diana Dibden of the law firm Johnson, Withers and Spoon explaining my experiences while employed as a bank officer, the bank’s relationship to marina developers & associated debt that became public debt, the July 1991 editing of my sworn testimony, the ‘Home Invasion’ theft of SBSA letterhead documents, the claims of the SA PCA to have used “defective” recording equipment to accept my complaints of June & July 1992 & the magistrates court charge for which I had received a summons to appear in court in June 1993. Ms Dibden advised me that she could assist and required me to pay $500- so that her law firm’s representation of me could be considered official. I soon later had a second interview at the law firm’s office with a large aggressive man who advised me that Johnson, Withers and Spoon would not assist me but was to keep the $500 I had paid, as payment for the two interviews. The man’s aggression and behaviour gave me the impression that he was a police officer.
June 1993 As the issues of the 10 July 1992 ‘Home Invasion’ theft of SBSA letterhead documents, the subject of a July 1992 complaint to the PCA, were unresolved despite claims of a secret police report exonerating all police from any impropriety, & the ‘Home Invaders’ thieves were still unidentified, I refused to enter a plea before Magistrate Gurry, whom indicated that he considered that to be a plea of not guilty.
The trial was to proceed requiring that the ‘Home Invaders’ to appear, identify themselves and testify. Purported SA police officers who were people who had never been to my home, testified that they were those who had performed a search of my home for guns on the night of 10 July 1992. They committed perjury.
Under my cross-examination a young man claiming to be named Les Shearn demonstrated that he was right handed (Constable Shearn of 10 July 1992 was left handed) as he attempted to reproduce the signature on the receipt that I had been provided. He testified under oath that he had been at my home by himself & unarmed for the purpose of searching for guns. Magistrate Gurry gasped, said “What, you were there by yourself” then intervened and testified on behalf of the witness, but his words were not included on the courts transcript of proceedings, 9 pages of which I had purchased at $9- per page. I have only managed to retain two pages of the transcript (‘PC. Shearn.pg.27.June1993’ & ‘PC.Shearn.pg.28.June1993’ appear below). of June 1993, the rest along with many copies of the full 9 pages have been stolen.
I provided the transcript of testimony (the relevant 9 pages) that described dangerous and illegal acts that are not within SA Police procedure, to the PCA during June 1993. My complaints of 1992 that had been investigated by SA Police officers John Tank and Lyn Strange were re-opened in June 1993. SA police and the SA Police Complaints Authority continued to refuse to communicate with me.
In September 1993 ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper published a newspaper article headlined “Pro-Image Studios another Director Charged” referring to William Edward Turner being charged by the Australian Securities Commission (ASC) with multiple financial crimes.
The news article has since been erased from Australian state and national public libraries records of Australian newspapers published but when I in late 2004 discovered that those records had been falsified (news articles published erased) I in 2005 requested the ASC provide me with a copy of the ASC press release on which it was based (I assumed it likely existed) & the ASC sent me a copy of their ‘Media Release dated 27 September 1993 ASC ref. ASC 93/225’ & written (letter) confirmation of the ASC criminal charges against William Turner being dropped in November 1995.
The information that the ASC charges were dropped in November 1995 was published in ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper but has since been erased from records of newspapers published that are accessible by the public & fraudulently sold as authentic ‘archives’ of newspapers published.
Only by my in September 1993 & November 1995 reading information published in News Ltd.’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper was I aware of it and knew to ask the ASC (since renamed the Australian Securities & Investment Commission ASIC) for a copy of the Press Releases relating to Pro-Image Studios Ltd. and Director William Turner. ‘Media Release dated 27 September 1993 ASC ref. ASC 93/225’ (obtained in 2005) and ‘Media Release dated 10 November 1995 ASC ref. ASC 95/177’ (copy obtained 2015) appear below. [files ‘ASC 93-225 27 Sept 1993’ & ASC 95-177 10 Nov 1995’]
October 1993 – On about the 20 October 1993 I had a telephone conversation with DGH solicitor Richard John & informed him that I had recently accessed SA Legal Services Commission documents that indicated DGH had received payment from the LSC for a service that he had later demanded & received payment from me. I requested that he co-operate with exposing the facts of my sworn testimony of July 1991 being erased from the record of proceedings. Within 10 minutes of that conversation I had SA police forcing their way into my home & arresting me for threatening to kill Richard John. They were the same SA police officers whom had stalked me for many years, the arresting officer being (identified in 1994 court appearances as Detective Grant Gittos) the same person in charge of the 10 July 1992 ‘Home Invasion’ when SBSA letterhead documents related to my complaint of June 1992 to the SA Police Complaints Authority (PCA) were stolen. The most senior of the three police officers knocked himself unconscious when he accidently walked face first into the edge of my front door as we were departing, because he was more intent on giving me a difficult time rather than watching where he was going while I was attempting to avoid being marched into the edge of the front door of my home.
From about 20 October 1993 to 1 December 1993 I was detained at Adelaide’s Remand Centre (ARC) police & court bail having been refused for a charge of ‘threaten life’ of Richard John. During November 1993 I received a visit at the ARC from SA Police who charged me with a third count of ‘Threaten Life’ of an officer of the SA United Trades and labour Council (UTLC).
On 1 Dec. 1993 I was transported to Adelaide’ ‘Yatala’ Maximum Security prison & held in ‘E’ Division’s two person jail cells. I was held at Yatala prison for 4 weeks from 1 Dec to about the 28 Dec 1993 when I was returned to the Adelaide’s Remand Centre until the 4 January 1994 when I was allowed bail, this time unopposed by SA Police and SA DPP.
In mid-December 1993 an Australian/Italian (“Calibres”) man named Saverio (Sam) Catanzaretti arrived in the jail cell to start a 2 week sentence for illegal gambling (running a card game) at his coffee shop club. Within an hour of his arrival in the jail cell he had a visit from a very friendly senior ranking prison officer who had a more elaborate uniform than I’d seen before.
The prison officer said “Sam are you alright? Is there anything I can do for you, anything that I can get you?”
Sam replied “Nah, I’m alright.”
When I later asked Sam “how he knew this man and why was he so friendly?”
Sam replied that “he knew most of the prison officers from when he was a kid visiting his father who was sentenced to 10 years in jail for growing marijuana”.
Sam’s angry expression as he remembered his childhood prison visits to his father was very obvious. He hated law enforcement officers.
During the next few days Sam offered me a job selling amphetamines, claimed to be a close associate of the March 1992 Adelaide NCA bomber Dominic Pere, said he had “police working for him”, disclosed the motivation for his gang’s murder of the NCA police officer killed by a bomb in March 1992 & details of crimes/police corruption motivating the gang to kill the policeman, claimed to be Italian/Calibres mafia [‘Ndrangheta – which I had no interest in learning how to pronounce], said that his wife’s surname was Trimboli before they were married (& said they had a young son), said that the body of 1970s murder victim Donald Mc Kay “was in the river”, and later accused me of being an informer & threatened to kill me.
NCA officer Geoffrey Bowen (Adelaide March 1992 NCA bombing murder victim) was killed because he failed to comply with the agreed terms of his corruption after he had accepted money (to inform if the 1988 Hidden Valley NT cannabis crop had been discovered) from his eventual killers. Alleged NCA bomber Dominic Pere (in December 1993 not yet having gone to trial) and Saverio (Sam) Catanzaretti were in the late 1990s eventually convicted of the 1988 Hidden Valley NT cannabis crop. The newspaper article (about 3 sentences) reporting their 1988 Hidden Valley NT cannabis crop convictions cannot be located in the (now known to fake) newspaper archives & appears to have been erased from the publicly accessible records. Australian police refuse to indicate/confirm that they were convicted & if so when. SAPOL claims that “Dominic Pere and Saverio Catanzaretti are entitled to privacy concerning their criminal convictions”.
When Catanzaretti claimed to be a close associate of the NCA bomber & disclosed their motivation for killing NCA officer Bowen – Sam: “We paid the NCA $30,000 for the Hidden Valley crop” (said when we discussed growing marijuana) Me: “The NCA?, You don’t trust that bunch of assholes, let me guess, he took your money & arranged for you to be arrested.” Sam “So we blew him up”. – I told him to shut up & that I didn’t want to know his business.
I could at the time believe that he was lying & trying to big-note himself in a jail environment. When I was absent from the jail cell to vote in the December 1993 SA state election, Catanzaretti was suspicious that I was a police informer “working for Moribito”& said you “better be straight”, “If you’re not straight you’ll be floating down the river”. Lying or not, I wanted nothing to do with this piece of human trash, but in jail it’s necessary to get along with fellow inmates.
Saverio (Sam) Catanzaretti after about 12 days confinement in a two person Yatala (Maximum security) prison cell with me, was transferred to Mobilong (Medium Security) prison to complete his short (2 weeks) prison sentence. (see file ‘Meeting Catanzaretti prison Dec 1993’ for details’) I was returned to the Adelaide Remand Centre late in December.
On 4 January 1994 I was allowed bail by Judge Christopher Legoe, on this occasion unopposed by SA Police & prosecution authorities.
January 1994 –During January 1994 the alleged Adelaide NCA March 1992 bomber Dominic Pere (named 2 weeks after the March 1992 Adelaide NCA bombing) was named in front page news (‘The Advertiser’ newspaper) as having been arrested for tens of millions of dollars of amphetamines. A photograph of two of his co-accused arrested was published with pixels concealing their faces because a temporary suppression court order prevented them from being identified. That January 1994 news article published on the front page of the ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper has been erased from publicly accessible records. Two weeks later the suppression order expired and they were named as “Francesco (Frank) Bagyo Carbone” (Frank Carbone) & “Severio (Sam) Franceso Catanzariti”. [see file ‘Carbone Amphetamines 10 Jan 1996 pg 1’ below – the date of this copy of the news article from the records of Australian public libraries is false] – The photograph is a smaller lighter version of the larger photograph published in January 1994 (since erased from records) with pixels concealing the faces of Carbone and (Severio/Saverio Catanzariti/Catanzaretti . The larger photograph published with pixels appeared to have been taken at night [the previous night] when they were arrested. From what Yatala Prison cell Sam Catanzaretti (prison cell spelling) had said to me during December 1993, he was obviously the same person referred to in the January 1994 news articles and at least a lot of what he had said during jail cell conversations was true.
The newspaper article (file ‘Carbone Amphetamines 10 Jan 1996 pg 1’) headlined “Court told of phone calls ‘Fears’ for drug case witness” that is now within publicly accessible records as published in January 1996, refers to Frank Carbone & gangster ‘Lieutenant’ of “(the man’s)” “(the man whose name remains suppressed)” “Severio (Sam) Catanzariti”, was published on paper in January 1994 within a month of my being in Yatala prison with Sam. The photograph published in January 1994 was not of sufficient quality for me to identify Frank Carbone as my stalker (with his associates) throughout the late 1980s. [From photographs of Carbone published in July 1995 I was able to recognise & identify Frank Carbone as my stalker] The “(the man’s)” “(the man whose name remains suppressed)” was Dominic Pere who was named as being arrested for the March 1992 NCA bombing within weeks of the event and the only person to be named at the time of the arrests for amphetamines in January 1994.
During the 1994 trial for amphetamines it was disclosed that the amphetamines were “cooked” by investigators of the joint SA Police/NCA investigation into the March 1992 bombing murder of NCA Officer Geoffrey Bowen. The police had damaged (contaminated) red phosphorus used to manufacture amphetamines to cause the crime gang to obtain more that might be linked to the source of red phosphorus used in the bomb that killed NCA Geoffrey Bowen in March 1992. Dominic Pere was convicted for the amphetamines but Catanzaretti and Carbone were “acquitted”, according to newspaper reporting.
March 1994 During March 1994 I appeared in the SA District court before “Judge Bruce Lander” represented by LSC funded lawyer Stephen White for an “arraignment hearing” before going to trial on a charge of ‘Threaten Life’ of lawyer Richard John. After appearing, entering a plea of ‘not guilty’ and having my words “These allegations that I have threatened anyone are false and these proceedings are intended to threaten, intimidate and discredit me over my attempts to expose issues of State Bank of SA impropriety and debt concealed” recorded by the court reporter, Judge Lander found I had a case to answer and would go to trial.
I was provided with a copy of the transcript of proceedings. That transcript was the first & only one that was ever provided to me at no cost & without my requesting it. It did not include my words that I had seen being recorded. Lawyer Stephen White advised me that only an appearance before Judge Lander could review and correct the inaccurate transcript of proceedings. Another hearing before Judge Lander was arranged. On the day of the “arraignment hearing” I could see from the expressions & manner in which defence lawyer Stephen White & SA DPP Prosecutor Phil Crowe were acting that something was not right. The proceedings before “Judge Lander” were a badly acted charade. At the second appearance before “Judge Bruce Lander” he said that “Yes”, you did say that”. He made no order for the transcript to be amended. The message intended for me was that what I said under oath was irrelevant, court transcripts were under the control of others who were corrupt, & who decided what was said in court & had the transcript to prove what was or wasn’t said.
Defence counsel lawyer Stephen White advised me that the SA Dept for Public Prosecution (SA DPP) was offering a “Plea Bargain”. “If I was to enter a plea of guilty on two charges of ‘Threaten Life’ they would drop a third charge of ‘Threaten Life’ for the UTLC officer”. I refused the offer.
At my first trial of 1994 I appeared charged with ‘Threaten Life’ of SA Police Commissioner David Hunt. The Commissioner’s secretary Christine Whitford claimed that she had received a telephone call from me in which I said I was going to “Cut off the Police Commissioner’s head”. Previous magistrate’s court pre-trial documents referring to a charge of ‘endanger life’ (now changed to ‘threaten life’) referred to Whitford’s claim that I had said “Chop off the Police Commissioner’s head”. I did in late 1992 have several telephone conversations with Whitford referring to my unanswered correspondence requesting that Police Commissioner Hunt acknowledge the Police Complaints Authority’s claim to have used defective recording equipment in June & July 1992 to accept my complaints, in their letter dated 2 November 1992. (see file ‘PCA 2 11 1992’)
The jury, although instructed by the judge to find me guilty, smelt a rat, saw two prosecutors trying to convict me but no defence counsel & saw my surprise and concern that no-one was prepared to ask me questions while I was under an oath to tell the truth. The jury refused to convict me and came back as a ‘Hung Jury’. The decision was reported in ‘The Advertiser’ much less prominently than the trial itself when the newspaper used the words of the prosecutor in headlines, falsely attributing them to me. The trial cost me $5000- discounted from $50,000-. The SA Legal Services Commission placed a lien on the title deed of the home to ensure that the debt was paid.
About a week before the retrial, lawyer Stephen White approached me in the street near my house and told me that Australian criminal law had no such thing as a “Plea Bargain”. I already knew that the terms “Plea Bargain” & “Arraignment Hearing” were American (US) terminology popularised in television dramas. What was offered to me wasn’t even a “plea bargain” in the USA. In Australia a US ‘Arraignment Hearing’ is known as ‘Committal proceedings’.
Stephen White when he approached me in the street near my home was acting in a provocative manner & appeared to want me to assault him. I smiled & left him there.
At the re-trial I represented myself rather than have a corrupt lawyer working to convict me. The Judge was from the beginning doing his best to assist the prosecutor to convict me and hinder my defence.
I cross-examined SA Police Commissioner David Hunt’s secretary Christine Whitford while she was under oath. Her evasive manner & discomfort in committing perjury in claiming I had made a threat & that she could not recall the content of what she agreed were our many telephone conversations (during which I referred to my unanswered correspondence that included reference to the PCA’s letter claiming to have used “defective” recording equipment), was obvious.
The Judge prevented me from giving unhindered sworn testimony in my own defence by his constant interruptions and then in summing up, instructed the jury to convict me. The jury’s decision of a guilty verdict was not unanimous. The transcript of the Judge’s summing up was nothing like what he had said. An appeal was possible if leave to appeal (requiring the transcript) was granted by the court within two weeks. The transcript was not available for three weeks. The trial and verdict was not reported by any news media.
On 3 August 1994 (my 37th birthday) I was on trial as a self-represented person on charges of ‘Threaten Life’ of lawyer Richard John and ULTC officer Kevin Purse (whom I had never met or spoken to). I had subpoenaed Barrister David Bamford to appear to be cross-examined regarding his employment by lawyers Duncan Groom and Hannon to represent me. He confirmed that I had contacted him over my July 1991 sworn testimony given to Workcover Review, that I had under oath referred to SBSA’s connections to the Marino Rocks marina development & that he was aware that my testimony was not on the record of the proceedings. His stuttering evasions were not very helpful to me & gave the appearance that I was a bully.
I cross-examined lawyer Richard John who reluctantly confirmed that he had obtained money from me that he was forced to repay. His testimony that it was a result of a computer generated letter demanding money from me, was perjury which could be proven as such. The “computer generated letter” did not exist.
Under my cross-examination of SAPOL Officer Grant Gittos, his testimony (in chief) regarding his positioning when departing my home after arresting me, which he had carefully made notes of, was shown to likely be perjury. He had, from behind, witnessed SAPOL Mullins knock himself unconscious against the edge of the heavy front door of my home, because Mullins was mostly intent on giving me a difficult time rather than watching where he was going. Gittos could not remember why he considered the making of notes of his positioning when departing my home was noteworthy. The judge assisted him by stating that “he couldn’t remember and it didn’t matter”.
Concerning the third charge of ‘Threaten Life’ (UTLC Kevin Purse), a UTLC employee when cross-examined, disclosed that SA Police had encouraged & assisted her to decide what to put in her statement and that a man named “Alan Bates” (?) had telephoned to say he was going to kill UTLC Officer Keven Purse. The poor woman didn’t know what was going on & was easily led by police but not easy to coach & manipulate for her court appearance.
While I gave my sworn testimony I carefully watched the court reporter recording my words as I described the SBSA relationship to Marino Rocks marina developers, specifically referring to the SBSA’s payments to Turner and Burloch’s companies through ‘Kabani’ & attempted to explain Richard John’s motivation for falsely claiming that I had threatened to kill him. I was constantly interrupted by the Judge.
The Judge in summing up again demanded that the jury find me guilty on all counts.
The jury returned a verdict of guilty of threatening Richard John as a majority verdict not a unanimous decision & the unanimous decision, contrary to the judge’s instructions, of not guilty of threatening UTLC officer Kevin Purse.
The UTLC Kevin Purse threat trial was previously offered by the SA DPP to be dropped as the “Plea Bargain” conditional of my guilty plea to the two other charges. The DPP knew that a successful prosecution even with their corrupt methods was unlikely. My successful defence as an unqualified self-represented person suggests police & prosecution impropriety in bringing the matter to court. News media failed to report any of the (2 charges combined) trial.
The transcript of proceedings was nothing like what was said during the proceedings. My testimony, the testimony of police, the judge’s summing up and the testimony of Richard John referring to having obtained money from me that he was forced to repay did not appear in the transcript. I was sentenced on all charges of which I was found guilty, on the same day as the trials of 3rd August 1994. I received a two year suspended sentenced conditional on my performing 100 hours of community service work & to be of good behaviour.
In mid-August 1994 less than two weeks after my trial, a front page (‘The Advertiser’ newspaper) news article, that included a photograph of lawyer Richard John, referred to his entering a plea of guilty to fraud charges that were not specified in the news article. The name of his law firm was suppressed from publication. That news article has been erased from publicly accessible (Australian library) records of Australian newspapers published.
In December 1994 Richard John was sentenced to two years jail for defrauding his law firms clients of what was said to be $70,000. The sentence was suspended conditional on a good behaviour bond and Richard John was struck off the register allowing him to work as a lawyer. The SA DPP successfully appealed the suspension of his jail sentence and he did do six months in prison before being paroled. A news article dated 6 December 1994 referring to Richard John being sentenced to jail is said to still exist within publicly accessible Australian library records of newspapers published.
During 1994 I was required to perform community service work under the supervision of (the retired) Judge Christopher Legoe who had allowed my bail on 4 January 1994. I worked clearing the rubbish from, and gardening (removing weeds) of the historic Mitcham Cemetery supervised by Christopher Legoe the Chairman of the Mitcham Cemetery Restoration Committee. Christopher Legoe later in 1995 returned to work as a SA Supreme court judge. I provided my Community Service Work Supervisor Christopher Legoe with a basic one page account of William Tuner’s debts to SBSA & the State Bank of SA’s ownership of companies involved with William Turner but did not have any opportunity to discuss it or anything else with Mr Legoe.
During 1995 (April or May 1995) I returned home during the daytime to find 2 uniformed SA police constables in my backyard. I recognised the man as PC Les Shearn the ‘Home Invader’ of the night of 10 July 1992 [the original left-handed Les Shearn not the right handed purported PC who gave testimony – perjury – in court in June 1993]while the Woman PC was unknown to me. They claimed to be looking for a lost child. They did not identify themselves but when I asked the male PC “And you are?” he replied “Mergatroyed”. The WPC consented to leave when I requested that they do so but PC Les Shearn/Mergatroyed refused to do so. The WPC and I waited in the street where she radioed for assistance that arrived within a few minutes and the PC Mergatroyd /Shearn was escorted from my property. It appeared possible that something of my complaints to SA’s PCA of July 1992 that was said to be re-opened in June 1993 was being investigated. PC Sheran/Mergatroyed [who had been to home by himself in July 1992]looked anxious, agitated & a little freaked-out while he was armed with a hand gun and refusing to leave my home, when I with the Woman Police Constable left to wait in the street for assistance.
During July 1995 ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper published newspaper articles dated 13 July 1995 headlined “Private eye raid legal, court rules” & 29 July 1995 headlined “Investigator on corruption charges” both with a photograph of Frank Carbone. From the photographs I recognised Frank Carbone as my stalker (doing surveillance or there to intimidate me) from late 1986 to the early 1990s with whom I saw him with his stalker associate from the late 1980s (SAPOL officer/Home Invader 10 July 1992 identified as Detective Grant Gittos during trials in 1994) – see file ‘Carbone July 1995’.
It seemed likely that this person was the same Frank Carbone who was arrested with Sam Catanzareti & (alleged) NCA bomber Dominic Pere in January 1994. The news article of 29 July 1995 stated that Frank Carbone & co-accused SA police officers were charged with corruption offences “as a result of investigations into complaints lodged with the Police Complaints Authority in June 1993.” “When police arrested the three officers in April, they also raided Mr Carbone’s Prospect business Eagle Investigations, and seized a large quantity of documents and computer files.” “After a lengthy court battle, Justice Legoe ruled that some documents were professionally privileged and others were not.”
SA Police and the SA Police Complaints Authority continued to refuse to have any communication with me concerning my June 1992 & July 1992 complaints that I had lodged with the SA PCA that were re-opened in June 1993 when I provided 9 pages of the transcript of magistrates court proceedings of perjured testimony of SA police describing illegal & dangerous acts that were clearly not within police policy & procedure.
November 1995 During November 1995 ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper published two newspaper articles that referred to;
1. SA state Treasurer announcing an unexpected improvement of $20 Million to the state’s finances (was it SBSA bad debt recovered by the SA Assets Management Corporation SAAMC [debt associated with William Turner?] was the obvious question) with his statement that he “would disclose the origin of the $20 Million improvement in a couple of months’ time” and
2. Australian Securities Commission charges of financial related crimes against William Edward Turner being dropped. The November 1995 ASC Press Release to which this news article (since erased from publicly accessible records) relates, appears below. It had taken more than two years from William Turner being charged – September 1993 charges relating to crimes of 1988, during which time he had been in and out of bankruptcy 6th. July 1990 to 6th July 1993 (not when as reported in Adelaide News Ltd. on 5th October 1989) – before he in November 1995 appeared for a committal hearing at which it was decided not to proceed.
South Australian & Australian federal Ministers (Prime Ministers, Premiers and Attorney Generals) of governments of both political parties including the state MP for my SA electorate of ‘Waite’ Shadow Treasurer Stephen Baker MP refuse to allow any communication with me on these issues.
These two newspaper articles published [SA Treasurer Stephen Baker’s announcement of a $20 Mill. Improvement to SA state finances & Turner’s ASC charges being dropped] have since been erased from Australian state and national public library records of Australian newspapers published. They are two of the many newspapers articles published that have also been erased from the public records.
1996 January – [The fake, altered version of the existing records of newspapers published] See above reference to January 1994 for information relating to the altered false version of the news articles headlined “Court told of phone calls ‘Fears’ for drug case witness” (referring to the arrest for amphetamines of Carbone and Catanzareti) and the newspaper fake ‘archive’ copy appearing below, to assist your understanding of how and why the records of newspapers published have been altered.
Considerable effort had been made to threaten, intimidate and discredit me because of the need to conceal crimes and corruption concerning State Bank of SA bankruptcy public debt of which I was aware. I could not therefore be presented as a credible witness on the December 1993 prison cell disclosures relating to the bombing murder of a police officer, while being said to be unreliable regarding my claims of SBSA bankruptcy public debt detailed by me in sworn testimony, being corruptly concealed with my sworn testimony twice [July 1991 & August 1994] being edited [erased] from the records of proceedings in which I had given it.
Public disclosure of NCA officer Geoffrey Bowen’s killers’ motivation for his murder was not an acceptable option for law enforcement authorities who would have their claims of integrity & credibility destroyed. Public consideration of better alternatives to the present law enforcement control of the Australian illegal drugs trade [from which violent criminals had become wealthy & able to corrupt law enforcement authorities] had to be avoided.
South Australia has a long history of police officers selling illegal drugs. SA police head of the Drug Squad Inspector Barry Moyse for many years, purportedly without the knowledge of others, was stealing and selling heroin, amphetamine & cannabis court exhibits of drugs cases, obtained from the SA police highly secured area they were kept, before eventually being convicted and sentenced to 20 years in jail.
1996 January – On 20 January 1996 a front page news article was published in ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper headlined “Police out for revenge on sleuth, court told” not attributed to any journalist. The news article (file ‘Carbone sleuth 20 Jan 1996’) was published after NCA Bomber Pere, Catanzaretti & Carbone went on trial for amphetamines for which they were arrested in January 1994, with Pere convicted but Carbone & Catanzaretti acquitted. This news article published 20 January 1996 refers to & names Private Investigator Frank Carbone & co-accused on amphetamine charges in the present tense as if still facing the amphetamine charges even though their court trials on those charges were over and complete. The NCA bomber was yet to go to trial for the murder of Officer Bowen.
This news article seemed very strange, vague & even incoherent when I read it, when it was published in Jan. 1996. The reader discovers on page 2 of the news article that it’s about a bail application for Frank Carbone with the words “Applying for bail, for Mr Carbone,” & the article ending with “Justice Matheson refused bail and remanded Carbone in custody until next month”. The Nothing of Carbone’s appearance in court “next month” was ever published. The news article doesn’t specifically state for what charges Frank Carbone is seeking bail but any reader following newspaper reporting of Carbone’s arrests and trials would assume it was for the corruption charges he faced with co-accused SA police officers. Amphetamine charges for which he had been acquitted were irrelevant.
That Carbone was in 1996 facing trial for corruption charges is quite clear. A bail application while he was facing both corruption charges with co-accused police and amphetamines charges with his co-accused associates of the organized crime gang members accused of the bombing murder of a policeman would have been pointless because bail would never be granted in such circumstances.
The news article starts with the words;
“Police mounted an undercover operation against a Private Investigator as an “act of revenge” for his client getting off a serious criminal charge, a court heard yesterday.”
The “client” is not named & the “serious criminal charge” is not specified in the news article. We may speculate that it might be the amphetamines charges for which Carbone and Catanzaretti had already be acquitted & that Catanzaretti was Carbone’s “client” but the articles words “In one case the Director of public prosecutions had decided not to proceed against one of Carbone’s clients” suggest otherwise. Carbone and Catanzaretti had been “acquitted” (as in not guilty) of amphetamine charges for which the SA DPP did proceed.
The news article states; “The 34 year old father of 3, of Prospect, is charged with five other men with conspiring to manufacture a prohibited substance at Angle Vale on January 4.”
(The year 1994 when they were arrested for amphetamines is not mentioned. The “manufacture a prohibited substance” sounds like it must be amphetamines – no other news had been published/broadcast disclosing Carbone’s’ and associates’ arrests for drugs of any other kind.)
“The other men are Francesco Trimboli, 67, his son, Antonio Trimboli, 41, a relative, Severio Antonio Trimboli, 39, Severio Franceso Catanzaretti, 28, and another man whose identity is suppressed.”
[NCA bomber Dominic Pere who was the only person named when the gang were arrested in January 1994 is not mentioned although he was the only person referred to as being convicted when they (Pere, Carbone & Catanzaretti – those with surnames ‘Trimboli’ weren’t ever previously mentioned) went to trial for amphetamines that during the trial were said to have been “cooked” (manufactured) by SAPOL/NCA joint investigators of the Adelaide NCA bombing]
The news article by an unnamed journalist also states;
“The prosecution alleges the men set up a laboratory to make 45.5 kg of amphetamines, with a potential street value of $40 Million.” – A front page of Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ with a news article headlined “$40 Million amphetamine conspiracy” was published in January 1994 when alleged Adelaide NCA bomber Domonic Pere (named), Frank Carbone & Saverio Catanzareti were arrested in January 1994. It has since been erased from publicly accessible records of newspapers published & has not been re-inserted for a later date like the March 1992 NCA bombing [changed to March 1994] and the January 1994 arrests for amphetamines [changed to January 1996] have been.
The news article that was published in January 1996 continues;
“In other evidence, the Supreme Court was told undercover police and a police informant, known only as Miss X, were “cooks” in the amphetamine factory and staged a mishap in the laboratory the day before a raid by STAR Division officers.” (This is old news from 1994)
“The mishap resulted in the men allegedly involved in the drugs operation attempting to obtain red phosphorus, which is used to make amphetamines and bombs.” Continued page 2
“Applying for bail, for Carbone, Mr Doug Wardle said his client had run his own private investigation business for 14 years, was highly regarded and used by defense lawyers. This was his specialty… there are two cases in which he has been engaged which are of some importance: the NCA (National Crime Authority) bombing case and the Hidden Valley (cannabis crop in the Northern Territory) case Mr Wardle said. In one case the Director of public prosecutions had decided not to proceed against one of Carbone’s clients. Since Carbone had acted for this client he (Carbone) had been subjected to a “series of raids and arrests” that related specifically to that client. Mr. Wardle said police had mounted an undercover operation against Carbone – codenamed Operation Arba – “to try to set him up as an act of revenge in retaliation for what he had done for (the client)”
The news article refers to “an undercover policeman calling himself Dominic Morabito” “who had taped most of their conversations, continued to contact Carbone, attempting to engage him in criminal activities, such as taking part in drug crops, buying surveillance equipment and supplying chemicals.” …….. Mr Wardle said “But he (Carbone) did nothing whatsoever that was unlawful.”
“Mr. Wardle said Carbone denied the allegations against him and the case raised three issues: how far the police should be entitled to go to trap a citizen, the credibility of Miss X, and that nothing could have been made at the laboratory unless it was made by the undercover police or Miss X.”
“Opposing bail, prosecutor Jeff Powel said taped conversations involving Carbone were “not simply conversations” but indicated there were surveillance techniques being used against the undercover police, that Carbone had an inclination to destroy evidence, that he was prepared to “stand over” people, and that he could contact “rouge” police. Most alarming was Carbone allegedly telling Morabito how he had threatened a witness in another case.”
The caption under the front page photograph of Frank Carbone reads “Frank Carbone: charged with making amphetamines” which was true but doesn’t mention that he (with Saverio Catanzaretti) had gone to trail and had already been acquitted. Carbone was when this 20 January 1996 news article was published, facing corruption charges with SA Police co-accused. (see below ref. to ‘Carbone SAPOL Tank Strange 22 May 1997’ for further information)
Note – NCA bomber Domonic Pere and Saverio Catanzaretti were both later (ten years after 1988) convicted of the 1988 Hidden Valley NT cannabis crop that is referred to by Carbone’s barrister during the bail application referred to in the news article of 20 January 1996. Adelaide’s News Ltd. “The Advertiser’ newspaper news article published (of about three sentences in length) that referred to Pere’s & Catanzaretti’s conviction for the 1988 Hidden Valley NT cannabis crop, reported that Catanzaretti entered a plea of guilty & received a 2 year suspended sentence but Pere went to trial was convicted & sent to prison. The news articles cannot be found in records of newspapers published. It appears to have been erased from publicly accessible library records.
Years later the SA Police claimed that “Catanzaretti and Domonic Pere are entitled to privacy regarding their criminal convictions” and refused to confirm or deny that they were convicted of the 1988 Hidden Valley NT cannabis crop that was, according to Catanzaretti in December 1993, the motivation for killing (Adelaide SA NCA bombing) NCA police officer Geoffrey Bowen.
1996 On 2 February 1996 (file ‘Gittos SAPOL 10.2.1996’) ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper published a small news article under the headline “SA urges forgiveness for policeman” referring to Detective Grant Gittos having recently celebrated the arrival of the New Year by repeatedly firing his handgun into the air in the heavily populated beachside suburb of Glenelg. The Magistrate after describing Detective Gittos as “dedicated, hard-working and an ‘enormous asset to the South Australian police’ “and “hoped that Gittos’s position within the police force was not “diminished in any significant way”, without recording a conviction fined him $200 plus court and prosecution costs.
Gittos (his name unknown to me until 1994 court appearances) was an associate of Frank Carbone [both were my stalkers] and in charge of the 10 July 1992 ‘Home Invasion’ theft of State Bank of SA letterhead documents that was being investigated by SAPOL Internal Investigation Branch as a result of the June 1993 re-opening of the June & July 1992 complaint to the SA Police Complaints Authority.
1996 – On 14 February 1996 I had a conversation with Andrew Anastasiades of the South Australian Assets Management Corporation (SAAMC – the ‘bad bank’ with SBSA’s bankruptcy debt) and discussed the issues of SBSA’s connection to the Marino Rocks marina, the related public debt never accounted for & never publicly disclosed, and the related crimes being concealed. I received a letter from SAAMC (file ‘SAAMC.14.2.1996) referring to the conversation. It was clear from the conversation that SAAMC’s Andrew Anastasiades saw the problem as my knowing details of these issues of SBSA’s “Off Balance Sheet” debt of ‘Kabani’, and that that the debt details & associated crimes were being concealed.
The author, Andrew G. Anastasiades Head of Treasury and Finance SAAMC, was well aware of the SBSA connection to the Marino Rocks marina and related debt and was most concerned that I was aware of it. The letter states that the issues we discussed were “transferred” “to the South Australian Crown Solicitor” “for his response”. The office of the SA Crown solicitor would certainly have been aware of these issues from its 1991 involvement with the ‘State Bank Advisory Group’ (news article headlined ‘How SA will fund bank’s rescue” ’ file ’11 Feb 1991 pg 7 SBSA’) managing the first $500 Million of taxpayer funds for the SBSA bailout with fellow ‘State Bank Advisory Group’ member Chairman of the SBSA Board & Director of SBSA “Off Balance Sheet” ‘Kabani’, David Simmons.
1996 – After being convicted for amphetamines “cooked” by police investigators, alleged Adelaide NCA bomber Dominic Pere went on trial for the 2 March 1992 Adelaide NCA bombing murder of NCA officer Geoffrey Bowen. Considering what Catanzaretti had said to me during December 1993 jail cell conversations & that so much of what he had said was shown to be true, I was pleased to see Pere go to trial for murder.
A week before the murder trial started I received a telephone call from a man who claimed to be a SA police officer who asked me “What do you known about the NCA bombing?” That he was a SA police officer and if so, was he honest and working for the common good of SA citizens or working for the crime gang who killed Bowen, was by no means certain. I declined to have anything to do with him. Pere had been arrested years earlier, so police obviously had evidence to convict him & didn’t need my help. After I had that telephone conversation I considered the possibility that the December 1993 conversation I had had with Catanzareti, who was obviously under investigation at the time, were recorded by police investigators.
In about April 1996 Dr Howard Gorton whom I had since June 1989 consulted every six weeks, installed movement detectors at his consulting rooms & said that he had had a burglary. From that time in 1996 he would not or could not re-supply with me with (copies of) documents I had over several years given him and discussed with him, after copies of those documents had on many occasions been stolen from my home.
In about April/May 1996 the SA dept. for Correctional Services (DCS) claimed that my Community Service Work Supervisor Christopher Legoe was an inadequate supervisor of my community service work that was a condition of my suspended sentence, that they were refusing to recognise the work I had done, that I was in breach of my suspended sentence conditions and that I must therefore return to prison for two years.
I was summoned to appear in court before Judge Robin Millhouse. When told (by my cross-examination of DCS employees) that my community service work supervisor had provided inadequate supervision, Judge Millhouse indicated that he was aware that Christopher Legoe was my supervisor, without that information being presented to him in court. Judge Millhouse said “What, wasn’t this man’s community service work supervisor His Honour Christopher Legoe?” The DCS employee in the witness box said “Yes”. Judge Millhouse ordered the SA dept. for Correctional Services (DCS) to allow me to do further community service work which I did under unpleasant conditions.
In July 1996 the DCS again claimed that I was in breach of my suspended jail sentence conditions & I again received a summons to appear in court before Judge Millhouse on 1 August 1996. On that day Judge Millhouse ordered my return to jail & I was from the time of that court appearance transported to & detained at Adelaide’s Yatala jail ‘E’ Division.
After the first sleepless night of 1 August 1996 I was on 2 August woken from sleep at 6-00 PM, hand-cuffed and in darkness taken to an unidentified section of the prison. I was given no information & while dressed in a canvass smock & naked from the waist down, placed in jail cell ‘G401’ with a concrete bed with blood & faeces stained canvass bedding. For 3 days (the first full day was 3 Aug 1996 my 39th birthday) I was subjected to sleep deprivation (a close by cell door constantly slammed & I was also woken up with water sprayed over me when I fell asleep) & not given any food, but had tap water available to me. After three days I was ordered to place my hands through the small hole (‘trap’) in the door & a man* opened a pocket knife & made gestures to cut my wrists.
(* This man was not a prison officer. They are comfortable & confident in their work surroundings.) There may have been some doubt that I had recognised him. The door was a minute later opened so I could properly view him. I recognised him as a man who had frequently come to the front door of my home claiming to be a Jehovah Witness & on each occasion asked by me not to return – on the last occasion that he came to my home claiming to be a Jehovah Witness I asked him where the closest ‘Kingdom Hall’ was, he didn’t know and said “I think there might be one down Morphettvale”. When at Yatala, he cowered – unlike a ‘Yatala’ ‘G’ Division prison officer – when I stared at him.
After three days in solitary confinement I was taken to a cell in the prison infirmary & fed. I later discovered that ‘G’ Division was ‘Yatala’ prison’s solitary confinement punishment section. I was later detained in ‘B’ Division with no access to direct sunlight for about three weeks, and later transported to ‘Mobilong’ medium security prison.
In September 1996 a page of a newspaper with a newspaper article referring to SA Police Commissioner David Hunt having resigned [retired] and Police Commissioner Mal Hyde being appointed, was placed in my Mobilong medium security jail cell in my absence.
I was later (mid – 1997) to discover that the trial for murder of the March 1992 NCA bomber was during September 1996, ended with a ‘nolle prosequi’ court order (on application by SA DPP Director/Prosecutor Paul Rofe QC) after testimony given by a Yatala prison officer, that he had seen the bomber buying the bomb parts, was proven to be perjury. Prison employment records, presented to the court by the NCA bomber’s defence counsel, indicated that he was at work on the day he claimed to be shopping & had seen NCA bomber Dominic Pere. News media never explained the requirements of the ‘nolle prossequi’ court order postponing the trial. While 14 years later reading a book on crimes committed in Ireland & court cases abandoned with a ‘nolle prosequi’ court order, I discovered that the restart of the trial would require all of the testimony so far given, even that proven to be perjury, to be again presented to new jury.
October 1996 During October 1996 while in Mobilong prison I was finally able to contact a lawyer named Jon Lister, who arranged for an appeal of the Judge Millhouse decision to return me to jail, and a successful bail application in October 1996. Lawyer Lister employed barrister Christopher Kourakis to appear with me in court before three judges, one of whom was Judge Margret Nyland.
February 1997 In February 1997 the August 1996 decision of Judge Millhouse was overturned. I never met Jon Lister (but gave him documents – left at his office) & only saw barrister Kourakis in court. Chris Kourakis was appointed a Queen’s Counsel within a year, soon became SA Solicitor General & was appointed Chief Justine of the SA Supreme Court a few years later. These appointments were made by SA’s Attorney General who had been made aware of SA/Australian crime & corruption issues I was trying to have acknowledged but who had refused to allow my communication with him. I had ensured that Lawyer Lister and Barrister Kourakis were aware of the issues of State Bank of SA bankruptcy public debt & associated crimes I had been trying to have addressed. I was told that the grant of legal aid (from SA Legal Services Commission) was for the appeal of the August 1996 decision & that there was no grant of legal aid to assist me for any other matters. The Chief Justice of the SA Supreme Court is, like SA Judges whom the alleged NCA bomber appeared before, SA politicians & law enforcement, aware of crimes and corruption concealed, the deception of the public and the conspiracy to pervert the course of justice.
In March 1997 the first newspaper article (‘The Advertiser’ journalists Sylvia Kriven) referring to the Adelaide SA NCA bombing being an event of 2 March 1994 (not 2 March 1992 when it occurred) was published in the back pages of ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper. I attended the consulting rooms of Dr Gorton, provided him with that newspaper article, requested to be able to discuss it with him and he asked me to wait a few minutes while he finished some work, so he could then see me. Within two minutes a Police officer arrived and I was escorted from the premises. Psychiatrist Dr Howard Gorton had with me, witnessed the events I had experienced while I consulted him from June 1989 to October 1996 at which time he advised me that he was no longer prepared to allow me to consult him.
1997 After, in mid-1997, discovering the trial for murder of the Adelaide NCA bomber had been abandoned during September 1996 with a ‘nolle prosequi’ order successfully sought by Paul Rofe QC Director of the SA Dept. for Public Prosecution (SA DPP), I did during 1997 have many telephone conversations with SAPOL Major Crime Taskforce including SAPOL officer Paul Shramm & from mid-1997 to mid-1998 I had many conversations with SAPOL Chief Superintendent Bartlett, officers of the SA DPP and eventually SA DPP Director Paul Rofe (see file ‘SA DPP Rofe 15 Feb 1999 misleading’) disclosing the details of the December 1993 Yatala jail cell conversations that I had with Saverio (Sam) Catanzaretti while I was held in Yatala maximum security prison, bail having been refused until 4 January 1994.
SAPOL Officer Bartlett eventually justified SAPOL’s refusal to allow me to provide a formal statement because “the December 1993 Yatala prison cell conversations I had with [NCA bomber ‘lieutenant’] Catanzaretti (prison cell spelling of name) could not be relevant to the later March 1994 NCA bombing murder of Geoffrey Bowen”. He & other SAPOL officers refused to provide written confirmation of SAPOL’s decision not to allow me to provide SAPOL with a statement concerning Catanzaretti’s December 1993 prison cell disclosures concerning the murder of police officer Geoffrey Bowen.
When SAPOL officer Bartlett eventually claimed that the Adelaide NCA bombing was an event of 2 March 1994 I went to the State Library of SA archives of newspapers published, viewed the microfilm records and discovered that the newspaper reporting of the March 1992 Adelaide NCA bombing, the January 1994 arrests of Catanzaretti, Dominic Pere & Frank Carbone & the reporting of their trials for amphetamines had been altered to a 2 March 1994 for the Adelaide NCA bombing and January 1996 for the arrests for amphetamines.
In 22 May 1997 ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper on page 6 published a news article headlined “Judge accuses anti-graft police of ‘cover-up, lying’” (journalist Fiona Clark) in which Judge Nyland accused SAPOL officers Inspector John Tank and Detective Sargent Lyn Strange of corruption & lying to the court regarding their search of the office of Private Investigator Frank Carbone & the seizure of documents related to police corruption & the crimes that Carbone & co-accused SA Police officers had been charged with.
The original news article published on paper had no photographs, did not include the sentence “Carbone sold his business in October 1992 and it was from the new owner that about 9000 files were seized in early 1995.” When I discovered the altered ‘archived’ version of this newspaper article I could see from the photographs of Inspector John Tank and Detective Sargent Lyn Strange that they were the same people who had come to my home late at night during September 1992 claiming to be investigating my June and July 1992 complaints to the SA Police Complaints Authority.
Judge Margret Nyland’s words published in the original version of this news article, “It must be assumed that police expected to receive a benefit from providing Frank Carbone with secret police files” have been removed from the new, false version of the newspaper article that is within the fake records of Australian newspapers published fraudulently sold by Australian state and national public libraries as newspaper archives.
The new version of this May 1997 news article (file ‘Carbone SAPOL corruption May 1997’) is similar to the original published & while not specific in disclosing what SA Police IIB Officers Tank & Strange said to the court that was misleading and corrupt, does still convey the message that criminal charges of corruption against Frank Carbone & co-accused SA Police officers cannot continue because evidence was obtained illegally by SA Police officers Tank & Strange. No investigations into SA Police corruption regarding these corrupt SA police investigations into SA police corruption were ever reported by Australian news media. It appears that no investigation into the corruption of Tank & Strange was ever conducted.
The sentence absent from the original published but inserted into the new version for the fake records kept within Australian libraries “Carbone sold his business in October 1992 and it was from the new owner that about 9000 files were seized in early 1995.” is not consistent with the July 1995 newspaper reporting published 29 July 1995 (file‘Carbone July 1995’) under the headlines “Investigator on corruption charges” (‘The Advertiser’ journalist Police Reporter Nick Papps) that states the investigation into Frank Carbone & corrupt police began “as a result of investigations into complaints lodged with the Police Complaints Authority in June 1993.” “When police arrested the three officers in April, they also raided Mr Carbone’s Prospect business Eagle Investigations, and seized a large quantity of documents and computer files.” “After a lengthy court battle, Justice Legoe ruled that some documents were professionally privileged and others were not.”
According to the July 1995 news article (file ‘Carbone July 1995’) Eagle Investigations is said to be Frank Carbone’s Prospect business when it was “raided” when documents & files were “seized” “as a result of investigations into complaints lodged with the Police Complaints Authority in June 1993”. There is no mention of Carbone having sold his business in October 1992. Carbone was the owner of Eagle Investigations in 1995. Any new owner would have demanded ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper retract and correct any false information published that would have been detrimental to the business, as an association with a police “raid” & corruption charges would have been.
June 1997 – After my further attempts at telephone communication with the SA Police Complaints Authority it was clear that the SA PCA and Police Internal Investigation Branch had every intention of concealing SA Police corruption relating to Frank Carbone and his co-accused police associates.
On 29 June 1997 I wrote to SA Police Internal Investigation Branch and the SA Police Complaints Authority regarding the unresolved issues of my June 1992 & July 1992 complaints lodged with the SA PCA that were re-opened in June 1993 after it was claimed that SAPOL officers Tank & Strange had written a secret report exonerating SA police of impropriety. SA Police officers Inspector John Tank and detective Sargent Lyn Strange had now themselves been accused of being corrupt. I included a copy of the original newspaper article headlined “Judge accuses anti-graft police of ‘cover-up, lying’” in my correspondence.
I received a reply to my letter dated 29 June 1997 that included a copy of the news article dated 22 May 1997 headlined “Judge accuses ant-graft police of ‘cover up, lying”.
August 1997 SA IIB Commander F G Edwards acknowledged my correspondence in a letter dated 13 August 1997 & referred to an investigation that “cannot commence until the judicial process in which the Tank/Strange judgement was given has been finalised.”, noted that I had also sent the same correspondence to the SA PCA, that the PCA “had already raised a file into that matter” Commander Edwards letter stated that “the Authority will, as required, advise of the outcome of that investigation”. The SA PCA has never acknowledged my correspondence to the SA PCA. (see file ‘PCA SAPOL IIB Tank Strange13 Aug 1997’)
The letter from SA Internal Investigation Branch Commander F G Edwards was the first indication that my complaints to the SA PCA involved Frank Carbone and his corrupt SA Police associates.
With no attempts by the SA PCA and SAPOL IIB to contact me, I later made a further telephone inquiry to SA Police Internal Investigation Branch concerning these issues and I was told that the “SA Police Officer now in charge of SA Police IIB was Commander Tank” and the threat “We know where you live” was made.
1997 – In about September of 1997 A full front page news article published in Adelaide’s News Ltd.’s afternoon daily tabloid newspaper the ‘News’ referred to Ian Gilfillan MP (Australian Democrat political party) having committed fraud by claiming expenses for living in his Kangaroo Island electorate when he was residing in his Adelaide Eastern suburbs home. No other news media, even the morning daily broadsheet format News Ltd. newspaper ‘The Advertiser’, made any mention of Ian Gilfillan’s alleged crime of fraud of his electoral expenses. The matter was never heard of again.
1998 January – During January 1998 I had telephone conversation with officers of the National Crime Authority [NCA], including a Mr Peter Lamb NCA General Manager Operations, describing SA and Australian national crimes & law enforcement corruption concerning the State Bank of SA & the crime gang terrorist Adelaide bombing murder of NCA officer Geoffrey Bowen. I provided details of the December 1993 jail cell conversations that I had with Catanzaretti [Catanzareti] during which he disclosed his crime gang’s motivation for killing Geoffrey Bowen. Within a week I received a letter dated 28 January 1998 from P. J. Lamb NCA General Manager Operations [file ‘NCA Lamb 28 Jan 1998 NCA bomb’ NCA national Office Sydney] acknowledging I had contacted the NCA, but making no reference to the conversation that I had had with him [P. J. Lamb]& the information that I had provided. The letter from NCA officer Lamb states;
“I refer to your representations to the Adelaide and Melbourne offices of the National Crime Authority.
The matters raised by you do not fit within the role of the National Crime Authority. You will recall that this was explained to you by officers of the Adelaide and Melbourne Offices recently.
However, you should raise these matters with the relevant authorities in South Australia.”
The NCA was established by Australia’s federal government to investigate Australian organised crime. The investigation into the March 1992 Adelaide SA bombing murder of NCA officer Geoffrey Bowen, during which undercover police investigators (seconded from Victorian state police) “cooked” amphetamines for officer Bowen’s crime gang killers, was a joint SA Police / NCA investigation. The investigation failed to detect that the prosecution’s witness, an Adelaide prison officer was, according to Yatala Prison employment records, at work on the day that he claimed to have seen the bomber buying the bomb parts. The NCA and SA Police are of course well aware of the bomber’s motivation for killing NCA officer Geoffrey Bowen, and are together with Australian news media involved in conspiring to conceal that police [NCA] corruption related motivation for the bombing. Their cooperative efforts are an organised criminal conspiracy to pervert the course of justice. Murder victim Geoffrey Bowen’s NCA employment record ended on 2nd March 1992 when he was killed, two years before the new & false date of 2 March 1994 to which his death was changed after the September 1996 failure to convict his killers ended with the ‘nolle prosequi’ court order. The NCA/ACC refuses to indicate what their understanding is of when Geoffrey Bowen was murdered.
The NCA is responsible for investigating Australian national organised crime but it is not its role to investigate its own Australian national organised criminal conspiracy that conceals its corruption. There is no authority responsible for investigating crimes of the NCA that has been renamed the Australian Crime Commission [ACC].
On 7 July 1998 Ian Gilfillan MP made a speech to South Australia’s parliament referring to the Adelaide NCA bombing of 2 March 1994.
The Adelaide NCA bombing murder of Geoffrey Bowen occurred on 2 March 1992 while John Bannon MP was SA Premier (ALP govt.) nearly two years before the December 1993 SA state election & the beginning of SA Premier Dean Brown’s (Liberal party govt.) term of office. Many of the SA members of parliament in 1998 when Ian Gilfillan MP made this speech were ALP MPs in Premier John Bannon’s 1992 SA state government or were at the time of the March 1992 bombing not yet elected as Liberal Party MPs until December 1993.
http://sa.democrats.org.au/parlt/p1/980707_d.htm is a website with Gilfillan’s speech to South Australia’s parliament that begins with
‘The Hon. IAN GILFILLAN: I seek leave to make a brief explanation before asking the Attorney-General a question about the National Crime Authority bombing of March 1994.
The Hon. IAN GILFILLAN: The facts of the NCA bombing are well known: it took place on 2 March 1994 and claimed the life of Detective Sergeant Geoffrey Bowen and seriously injured lawyer Peter Wallis.’
The Adelaide SA bombing murder of National Crime Authority officer Bowen was front page news throughout Australia for weeks after the bombing of 2 March 1992.
‘The Advertiser’ newspaper published a front page news article referring to Gilfillan’s parliamentary speech of the previous day. As a result of the speech a SA Coroner’s Inquest into the March 1994 Adelaide NCA bombing was announced to commence in 1999. Wayne Chivell of the SA Police Complaints Authority (in June –July 1992 when the PCA used ‘defective’ recording equipment to accept my complaints) was appointed as SA Coroner to conduct the inquest into the NCA bombing.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation [ABC] was the first Adelaide television channel to broadcast their file footage of the remains of the 2 March 1992 Adelaide NCA bomb blast remains re-captioned with the new & false date 2 March 1994. Other television channels broadcast the news of the Coronial Inquest into the Adelaide NCA bombing to commence in 1999, with file footage of the bombing aftermath uncaptioned & then rebroadcast the same news item a few days later with the film captioned with the false date 2 March 1994.
After the speech to SA’s parliament was made by Ian Gilfillan MP I telephoned his Kangaroo Island electorate office, identified myself and asked to speak with him. My telephone call was accepted by him possibly because many people of land owning farming families on the island share my surname ‘Bates’ & he may have thought I lived within his electorate.
I said to Ian Gilfillan that he “must know that the Adelaide NCA bombing was an event of March 1992 when John Bannon was still Premier and Treasurer of SA”. He groaned and said “I had to do that” referring to his parliamentary speech referring to the date of the NCA bombing as 2 March 1994. I understood that he meant that he “Had to do that” (make the speech) or face prosecution for fraud over his electoral expenses that were reported in the 1997 front page news article of the ‘News’ newspaper, which South Australians had heard nothing further about. My telephone conversation with Ian Gilfillan was brief. I was shocked by what I had discovered, needed to consider it further & there appeared to be nothing to gain by further confronting him. Australian news media has never made further mention of Gilfillan’s fraud of his electorate expenses & he resigned soon after. His political party the Australian Democrats founded by Don Chip MP with the slogan “keeping the bastards honest” are no longer represented in any Australian Parliament.
1999 conversations with the South Australian Dept. for Public Prosecution and DPP Director Paul Rofe QC
After several telephone conversations with employees of South Australia’s dept. for Public Prosecution I had a telephone conversation with SA DPP Director Paul Rofe QC in which I provided details of the December 1993 Yatala prison jail conversations I had with Saverio Catanzaretti [jail cell spelling of his name] & advised him of SA Police refusals to allow me to provide a formal statement to them. I requested that Mr Rofe QC provide me with his written acknowledgement of our conversation. Within a few days I received a letter dated 15 February 1999 (SA DPP ref. Bates01 – file ‘SA DPP Rofe 15 Feb1999 misleading’) signed by SA DPP Director Paul Rofe QC in which he refers to having received my “telephone message” and suggests that I “direct my concerns to – Counsel Assisting the Coroner Inquest into the NCA Bombing”. He had carefully avoided acknowledging the conversation that I had had with him. SA DDP Director Paul Rofe QC was known to be an alcoholic who, according to news media, after being convicted of drunk driving & having his licence to drive revoked, was provided with a taxpayer funded chauffer driven car to drive him to and from work. He was also said to be a gambling addict known to frequently attend legal (TAB, horse racing betting) gambling shop front agencies during working hours.
I again contacted SA Police who also referred me to the SA Coroner’s Inquest into the Adelaide NCA bombing.
Former SA Police Complaints Authority CEO Wayne Chivell [during 1992 when the PCA claimed to have used “defective recording equipment”] had been appointed as SA’s state Coroner to conduct the 1999 Coronial Inquest into the 2 March 1994 “unsolved” Adelaide NCA bombing murder of NCA officer Geoffrey Bowen. The trial of the NCA bomber for the 2 March 1992 bombing murder had ended with the ‘nolle prosequi’ court order in September 1996.
During mid-1999 after the start of the SA Coronial Inquest into the March 1994 Adelaide NCA bombing, I travelled along the coast of Australia’s Eastern states of Victoria and New South Wales, rather than remain in SA. I’d attended the SA Coroner’s office on referral from the SA Police [& SA DPP Director Paul Rofe QC] and while in the SA Coroner’s office reception area been attacked, knocked to the floor & thrown into the street.
May 1999 – I did read the Adelaide News Ltd. ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper news media reporting of 8 May 1999 [news article headlined ‘My voice? I don’t recognise it…’] referring to SA Coroner Wayne Chivell questioning a crime gang member about tape recordings made by police investigators concerning the amphetamines “cooked” by police for the crime gang. The crime gang member being questioned and SA state Coroner Wayne Chivell asking the questions both know that NCA officer Geoffrey Bowen was killed on 2 March 1992 & the amphetamines were manufactured by police investigators in late 1993 and early 1994 and not “late 1995 and early 1996” referred to during the Coroner’s Inquest and the news article. [file ‘NCA SA Coroner Inq 8 May 1999 Trimboli’] The Adelaide NCA bomber has the court records of the failed attempt by the SA DPP to prosecute him for the 2 March 1992 murder of officer Bowen, that ended with the September 1996 ‘nolle prosequi’ court order. Bowen’s killers know that there will never be any further attempt to prosecute them.
This May 1989 news article refers to a revised valuation of $1-8 million of amphetamines police were prepared to manufacture for the organised crime gang. The January 1994 front page ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper reporting [news article headlined “Court told of phone calls ‘Fears’ for drug case witness” –later changed in the fake newspaper archives to being published 10 January 1996] refers to arrests & a bail application before “Justice Nyland in the Supreme Court” “for one of six men charged with conspiring to manufacture about $40 million worth of amphetamines”. Has decreased demand and/or increased supply reduced the value or has the disclosure that police investigators “cooked” the amphetamines required an altered valuation so as not to sound too outrageous?
2000 – I left South Australia in the year 2000 after threats in SA during 1999 began to refer to “my mother having an accident”. For just over 2 years I lived in Atherton North Queensland. During that time it was clear that Australia’s corrupt law enforcement authorities were not prepared to allow me to live in peace in Australia. If I left my home for longer than 30 minutes I would return to find all the lights turned on and the back door unlocked and open.
Australian public hospital system, psychiatry & laws governing the profession [& authority to detain a person and impose life threatening medication] illegally used & abused for Human Rights abuses, concealed by secret, Freedom of Information exempt medical records
Queensland’s public hospital system – specifically Atherton hospital & Cairns Base Hospital Mental Health Unit (under Head of Psychiatry Dr Keith Muir*) was used and Psychiatry abused to act illegally to threaten and intimidate me. In 2006 Dr. Keith Muir* was struck off the state register of the Queensland Medical Board for failing to disclose that he was banned from practicing in the USA because he was found to be using his patients for sex. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2005-06-30/psychiatrist-receives-six-month-practising-ban/2048416 Psychiatrist receives six month practising ban
Secret, Freedom of Information (a reluctant FoI release 2003) exempt Queensland public hospital system Cairns Base Hospital medical files, although largely blackened out with exemptions, still reveal failures to comply with important laws intended to prevent abuses of Psychiatry. I nearly died as a result medication imposed upon me. The drug Mirtazapine – not a benzodiazepine minor tranquilizer as medical authorities claimed, but – a Serotonin Specific Reuptake Inhibitor [SSRI – an antidepressant with a well-known side effect of suicidal ideation] administered daily for a week caused my sensory systems to close down, blindness & bouts of unconsciousness. Serotonin is a major neurotransmitter of the human nervous system. There is no record within FoI released medical files of the drugs imposed upon me. The files were written by people I’ve never met who have no state medical board registration. Documents intended to ensure procedures comply with the Mental Health Act [MHA 2000] have either the names of those authorizing involuntary treatment [imposition of drugs] blackened out as FoI exempt or are blank indicating they were never complete as required by the MHA 2000.
See below May – June 2006 below for some information concerning Queensland events of 2002 regarding corruption of Australian Psychiatry involving Dr Keith Muir and Human Rights abuses. – – More detailed information including Freedom of Information exempt Queensland public hospital medical files concealing identities of purported medical professionals and manner of crimes committed and responses of law enforcement to conceal medical malpractice & hospital maladministration can be viewed at https://rjrbtsrupertsfirstnewspaper.wordpress.com/2015/11/22/australian-psychiatry-corruption-and-human-rights-abuses-2/
In 2003 I sold my Atherton North Queensland home and travelled to New Zealand staying for just one week. I viewed Auckland’s and Wellington’s public libraries’ records of newspapers published seeking true and accurate reporting of Adelaide’s 2 March 1992 NCA bombing murder of NCA Officer Geoffrey Bowen. I found that the microfilmed Australian and New Zealand newspapers records of newspapers published within Auckland’s and Wellington’s public libraries to be as false as the archives I had seen in Australian public libraries.
In 2004 I travelled to the United Kingdom for 3 months & viewed the records of newspapers published (including records imported from Australia) sold as archives of newspapers by British Libraries UK London Colindale. They are not archives and are false records as fake as those I had seen in Australia and New Zealand.
While in London I also viewed the Adelaide South Australia published newspaper reporting of the bankruptcy of the State Bank of South Australia. I discovered that the records of news articles published in SA reporting the bankruptcy of the State Bank of SA were nothing like what was published on paper. When I returned to Australia I found the records of newspapers published (SBSA bankruptcy) sold by Australian state & national libraries were just as corrupt as those of the British Libraries UK London Colindale. On my arrival in Sydney & visit to the State Library of NSW, the unusual interest, personal attention and assistance I received from library staff appeared to indicated that my visit was expected. Sydney NSW state Library’s records of Australian newspapers published are as false as Adelaide’s in SA, the British Libraries UK London Colindale, Canberra’s Australian National library’s and Brisbane’s state library of Queensland.
State Library of SA & News media corruption
2004 In October 2004 I was briefly in Adelaide. While I was during October 2004 in Adelaide SA, the State Library of SA staff claimed that the library preserves only one of the two daily editions of newspapers published and that anything missing must be in the edition not preserved. The UK and other Australian state libraries have microfilm of the purported two daily editions and they are identical to and as corrupt as Adelaide’s false records. Rupert Murdoch’s afternoon daily tabloid format newspapers the ‘News’ cannot be viewed on microfilm in any Australian public libraries. Adelaide’s State Library of SA claims that it can for $35- per page obtain a copy of any page of the ‘News’ if a date and page number is nominated.
[To obtain a copy of the news article it would be necessary to know the exact date of Adelaide’s the ‘News’ front page headline “Azaria – Sacrifice in the wilderness” – referring to claims that Lindy Chamberlain murdered her baby daughter Azaria, before she was convicted, sent to jail, released when the verdict was overturned on appeal, after which the Coroner’s Inquest verdict of 30 years later was that a dingo did take baby Azaria. News media and the legal profession were able to profit from that awful event, while others had their lives destroyed. Law enforcement and prosecutors acted on the fantasy of News Ltd. news media, to prosecute Lindy Chamberlain who was punished for not making herself available to news media. The stupidity of Australian law enforcement and prosecution authorities consumed several millions of dollars of taxpayer resources and had incalculable consequences for Lindy Chamberlain and her family but some sociopaths saw opportunity for profit from what most Australians should have immediately recognized as a tragedy requiring their empathy, understanding and their support of its victims.]
I was later to discover that Internet websites of Australia’s ABC & the State Library of SA* (SA state govt. http://www.samemory.sa.gov.au/site/page.cfm?c=2627 – website referred to by the Australian Press Council) falsely claim that Rupert Murdoch’s afternoon daily tabloid the ‘News’ closed in 1992. I lived in Adelaide until the year 2000 and know that the ‘News’ was published until less than a year before ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper change from a broadsheet to a tabloid format in 1999. Rupert Murdoch’s two appearances within one year to announce these changes to his Adelaide SA newspapers, broadcast on ‘free to air Adelaide SA’ television to make the announcements, were unprecedented.
More SA Police Complaints Authority corruption
While in Adelaide during October 2004 I also contacted the SA Police Complaints Authority. As a result, I received correspondence from the SA PCA (file ‘SA PCA 30.3.2005 Wainwright’) dated 30 March 2005 (ref. E1181 – Cor05776) signed by Anthony D. Wainright. The letter refers to enclosures to his correspondence that was purportedly previous correspondence the SA PCA had sent to me. There were no enclosures to this letter of March 2005 and I had never received any correspondence such as is referred to in the 30 March 2005 dated letter from the SA PCA.
My April 2005 telephone request that the SA PCA provide a copy of the enclosures that they had forgotten to include in the correspondence, was ignored. South Australian authorities continue to refuse to provide me with correspondence from them that they falsely claim has already been sent to me. The refusal to provide a copy of the documents that they falsely claim they have already provided to me suggests that the documents most likely do not even exist & demonstrates that they are aware of their maladministration, corruption and abuses of their positions of authority and public trust.
2005 In April 2005 while in Brisbane Queensland I received a letter from the South Australian Assets Management Corporation (SAAMC) dated 20 April 2005 letter ref. MPL05D0318 & TRS05D0683 – file ‘SAAMC 20 April 2005’) signed by Ron Rechner Office Manager Accredited FOI Officer, acknowledging receiving the fee I had paid for a Freedom of Information (FoI) release of my SBSA employment records & all information/documentation concerning my communication with SA Treasury & SAAMC Andrew Anastasiades (ref. Turner bankruptcy & SBSA debts) of February 1996. No FoI release has ever been made. The letter also refers to a FoI request made to SA Police that was never acknowledged by SAPOL. No Freedom of Information release has ever been made by any South Australian authorities.
2005 2006 I continued to live in Queensland during 2005 and into 2006 until I was arrested and detained in 2006 (but not charged with a crime) for an unspecified alleged threat to kill the Director of Queensland Mental Health Dr Aaron Groves (responsible for enforcement of the MHA 2000) while attempting to have issues of crimes (non-compliance with the MHA 2000) involving the Cairns Base Hospital in 2002 for which secret (FoI exempt files) medical files exist, recognized by law enforcement authorities. The Director of Queensland Mental Health has used/abused his position of authority rather than acknowledge the impropriety involving failures to comply with laws that he in his position of authority is required to enforce. He has done so while avoiding any legal process that would involve any appearance in court that would provide an opportunity to expose him as corrupt.
Habeas corpus – I had assumed that Habeas Corpus was the automatically applied requirement of law referring to the right to have the opportunity to face one’s accusers and not to be subjected to indefinite detention by authorities and that the denial of that right is an illegal act. I was wrong to assume that such a legal requirement existed in Australia. Extraordinary rendition – arrest and imprisonment without trial or appearing in court before a judge, is a fact of life in Australia. Courts & judges [purportedly ‘Independent’ of politicians who appoint them] in Australia are corrupt, but illegal imprisonment & evading any requirement of presentation to a court is easier to arrange.
Habeas corpus – noun, Law. “a writ requiring a person to be brought before a judge or court, especially for investigation of a restraint of the person’s liberty, used as a protection against illegal imprisonment.”
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/habeas-corpus (law) a writ ordering a person to be brought before a court or judge, esp so that the court may ascertain whether his detention is lawful.
A legal term meaning that an accused person must be presented physically before the court with a statement demonstrating sufficient cause for arrest. Thus, no accuser may imprison someone indefinitely without bringing that person and the charges against him or her into a courtroom. In Latin, habeas corpus literally means “you shall have the body.”
Australia – The writ of habeas corpus as a procedural remedy is part of Australia‘s English law inheritance.
The façade of Australian Justice and independence of judiciary and courts from governments
Australian judges, law enforcement commissioners & complaint authorities are appointed by politicians of Australian governments. They are said to be ‘independent’ of governments but it is unlikely that corruption with which they are involved is coincidentally for the benefit of politicians. Governments can be of either two political parties, politicians of which are aware of their own and their political opponent’s corruption. Politicians of Australian parliaments that consist of a political party in government & a parliamentary Opposition party do not keep each other honest. They act in cooperative efforts to deceive the Australian public.
Australian prosecution authorities, law enforcement authorities, Judges, courts administration authorities and the legal profession engage in corrupt practices that include the giving of perjured testimony in courts and editing and altering of the records of court proceedings to erase testimony detrimental to the objectives of prosecution and police acting on behalf and the benefit of politicians. Law enforcement authorities do not enforce laws & prosecute crimes public disclosure of which would embarrass them & others in positions of authority.
Australian news media are complicit in concealing government, law enforcement and prosecution authorities’ impropriety that is to the detriment of the public. News media falsely claims to act for the common good of Australian taxpayers by pursuing issues of government, law enforcement & prosecution authorities’ corruption.
Extraordinary rendition [unlawful arrest & indefinite detention without presentation to a court with the right to face, question & confront accusers] occurs in Australia. Presentation to a court to appear before a judge [whom may act corruptly] is possible but being inconvenient can be avoided by failures to comply with legal requirements [intended to prevent Human Rights abuses] that if questioned can be explained as “communication errors”, “administrative errors”, “departures from procedures for reasons unknown” and “honest mistakes”. It is not possible to force law enforcement authorities to enforce laws, or prevent them from engaging in efforts to conceal crimes and corruption. Such co-operative coordinated efforts to abuse laws, engage in crimes and then act to conceal them are the serious crimes of ‘conspiracy to pervert the course of justice’.
Documents that demonstrate crimes and corruption never prosecuted & concealed [correspondence from Australian politicians and law enforcement authorities & FoI release public hospital medical files – largely blackened out as FoI exempt but still indicating failures to comply with laws intended to prevent abuses of laws] will in the near future be posted to this WordPress website.
May – June 2006 – I was arrested & detained (May – June 2006) for 70 days at Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital (FoI request with no release made) without any access to any PAH doctors [qualified & registered or fake] & then released in the first week of July 2006 “conditional on my making no further attempts to further issues of complaints lodged regarding Queensland public hospital (Cairns 2002) maladministration and impropriety of Dr Keith Muir.” These very same issues involving public hospital system crimes and corruption that I had reported to the Queensland Crime and Misconduct Commission CMC were simply referred to Queensland Health & the law enforcement authority, the Director of Queensland Mental Health, Dr Aaron Groves who without acknowledging specific issues of crimes committed demonstrated by the evidence, has claimed that the events referred to were “communication errors”, “administration errors” and “honest mistakes” for which he has apologized. Previous 2002-03 non-compliance with Freedom of Information law time requirements were said to be due to “departures from procedures for reasons unknown”.
My late April 2006 arrest came shortly after I had received Royal Australian New Zealand College of Psychiatry (RANZCP) confirmation from RANZCP Complaints officer Allen White that purported Psychiatrist named within my Queensland public hospital system medical files had “never been a trainee or Fellow (FRANZCP) of the College.” (file ‘RANZCP Allen White 20 Jan 2006 C C Brennan’) In the last conversation that I had with RANZCP Allen White he advised me that “he had been instructed to have no further communication with me”. Allen White had previously been very interested in what he saw as corruption within the Psychiatric profession & its abuse in the public hospital health system [people I had never met but named in medical records as Psychiatrists even though they had no medical qualifications or state Medical Board registration] that he considered the Royal Australian New Zealand College of Psychiatry [RANZCP] would pursue on behalf of its legitimately qualified members [Fellows RANZCP].
Dr. C C Brennan named in my Cairns Base Hospital medical files as the Mental Health Unit’s Psychiatric Registrar [Dr. Catriona Brennan according to Queensland’s Medical Board administration] had no state medical board registration in Queensland. The only Dr. Catriona Brennan registered to practice medicine in Australia is, according to SA’s Medical Board, a Dr. of Pathology of many years, working at Adelaide’s Queens Elizabeth Hospital and who has never been employed in Queensland’s public hospital system.
Cairns Base Hospital Head of Psychiatry Dr Keith Muir is named as a treating physician in my 2002 Cairns Base Hospital medical files compiled when I was detained in August 2002. Others named as qualified doctors within the file as having written those files [e.g. Dr C C Brennan whom I have never met] do not have state Medical Board registration or medical qualifications.
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2005-05-04/second-doctor-implicated-in-qld-health-crisis/1563752 “Second doctor implicated in Qld health crisis” Posted 4 May 2005 This ABC website’s reporting “Premier Peter Beattie says the Queensland Medical Board was not alerted about the situation. He says there were no complaints about the psychiatrist during his time in Queensland, but the Health Commission of Inquiry can investigate the matter.” is false and misleading. Dr. Keith Muir is named in Queensland Medical Board correspondence of 2005 as being the subject of my unresolved complaints regarding events at Cairns Base Hospital in 2002.
Correspondence from the Queensland Health Minister Gordon Nuttall [July 2004 & June 2005 [written just prior to his arrest & convictions for corruption], the Queensland Medical Board, Premier Peter Beattie, the RANZCP all of whom have been provided with pages of my FoI released Cairns Base Hospital medical files that are evidence of medical malpractice and corruption of authorities, demonstrate that they have knowledge of crimes and corruption within their jurisdiction and authority to prosecute.
The Royal Australian New Zealand College of Psychiatry [RANZCP] motto is, according to their website, ‘Health and Well-being through Truth and Understanding’. While well aware of the corruption of the profession by people within the public hospital system falsely claiming to be qualified Psychiatrists [and aware of Fellows RANZCP being aware of this corruption of Psychiatry] , the RANZCP declines to acknowledge the documented evidence of impropriety, respond to my correspondence or have an interest in the corruption of the profession & related law enforcement authorities (state medical boards) on behalf of medically qualified membership Fellows RANZCP.
More Information on Secret Freedom of Information exempt medical records that conceal Australian Human Rights abuses, corruption, maladministration within the medical profession and abuses of Psychiatry, including pages of blackened out as Freedom of Information exempt Cairns Base Hospital medical records and correspondence from Queensland Minister for Health Gordon Nuttall, Premier Peter Beattie and the RANZCP, can be viewed at https://rjrbtsrupertsfirstnewspaper.wordpress.com/2015/11/22/australian-psychiatry-corruption-and-human-rights-abuses-2/
2006 – 2007 From July 2006 to October 2007 I lived in Adelaide SA until in late 2007. During the year that I lived in Adelaide I would most usually daily drive from South of Adelaide to North of Adelaide and often had a large black late model (new) Holden Commodore car driving within a few inches of the rear of my car. When I was at home I would frequently have a person knocking on my front door looking for a person whose name was not mine and who lived at a different address. Since 2007 I have lived in Thailand. In the last eight years I have twice (2010 & 2012), for a few months returned to Australia.
2008 28 February 2008 I received emailed letters from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister Hon Julia Gillard (files ‘DPM Gillard She.28.2.08.’ & ‘DPM Gillard Hubbard.28.2.08’) advising that Ms Gillard MP was aware of the Australian national corruption issues I had raised and that they “fall within the portfolio responsibilities of Attorney General, Hon Robert McClelland MP, your emails were referred for appropriate action.” Bob Debus MP (responsible for the ACC aka NCA) replied on behalf of McClelland MP who had never acknowledged my correspondence. The emailed letter, sent from an ACC email address, demanded that I provide “a fixed residential address”. The letter from Bob debus MP falsely claimed the issues I had raised had been investigated. (file ’Debus MP 21.4.2008’)
Australian Law Enforcement Integrity Commission
During July 2008 I received a letter dated 21 July 2008 from the “Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity” [also known as ALEIC – Australian Law Enforcement Integrity Commission] signed by Peter Bache Executive Director. The letter states “I have examined the material provided by you and reached the decision that the information does not raise a corruption issue within the meaning of section 7 of the Law Enforcement Integrity Commission Act 2006. Accordingly I will be taking no action in relation to this matter” – file ‘ALEIC 21.7.2008’ It was clear from my attempts to have reasonable communication with ALEIC that they intended to do whatever was necessary to evade the issues that I had raised. ALEIC did not acknowledge the information and documentation that I had provided.
2009 24 February 2009 and 24 February 2009 I received email from David Ridgway MP Shadow Minister for Police in South Australia advising that he believed it was inappropriate for him to confirm or deny that he can remember the SA events (SBSA bankruptcy and the Adelaide SA NCA bombing murder of Geoffrey Bowen) and the news media reporting in Adelaide’s newspapers, and that the “appropriate mechanism for further investigation will be an Independent Commission Against Corruption.” The email also confirms that he “has discussed the contents of your emails with the Liberal Members you have mentioned (both State and Federal)”
2010 During 2010 I returned to Australia for 4 months & lived in Adelaide’s Australian federal electorate of ‘Sturt’ during the 2010 federal election for which the Liberal Party’s Senator Chris Pyne was challenged by the Australian Labor party’s endorsed candidate Adelaide’s Professor Rick Sarre. I attempted correspondence with both candidates with Professor Rick Sarre replying but no reply from Senator Chris Pyne who was first elected to federal politics during 1993 [he was an Adelaide SA lawyer in March 1992 at the time of the Adelaide NCA bombing] before the new false date of 2 March 1994 to which the Adelaide NCA bombing had been changed. Federal Senator for SA Chris Pyne refuses to indicate his recollection of events and there news media reporting [SBSA bankruptcy & March 1992 Adelaide NCA bombing]. An email dated 18 August 2010 received from Adelaide Professor Rick Sarre appears below. Rick Sarre also returned my telephone call the week before the 2010 Australian federal election and after realising who I was claimed to be too busy to discuss anything but assured me he would contact me after the election. He has since refused to respond to my correspondence.
Both Professor Rick Sarre and SA federal Senator Chris Pyne both know the facts of Australian crimes & corruption relating to events in South Australia of national significance and are aware of both of their political parties’ involvement in & agreement to conceal corruption rather than keep each other honest.

Thank you for your email. I do want to respond because it is important that political aspirants hear what is on the minds of their potential constituents.
I do recall well the events of 2 decades ago when the State bank story broke and destroyed the Bannon government in its wake. I am not sure to which events you are referring, but let me assure you that if I am elected I am happy to offer a listening ear.

2010 – 2011 In late 2010 and early 2011 I had correspondence with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) concerning the fake records of Australian newspapers that are fraudulently sold by Australian state and national libraries as authentic archives of Australian newspapers published. The ACCC eventually reluctantly provided me with a response in a letter dated 31 January 2011 the first of which was lost in the post & the second of which I received in late February 2012. The ACCC letter dated 31 January 2011 signed by ACCC CEO Brian Cassidy (ACCC ref. 1032406) (file name ‘ACCC CEO Cassidy 31 Jan 2011 ref 1032406’) claims that such sale of (allegedly) false records as true archives is not illegal under laws enforced by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission. Australian politicians (of both parties & are mentioned in the ACCC letter), government ministers who are aware of the facts but refuse to indicate their recollection of events & news media reporting of them, and the ACCC have no interest in considering amending legislation to ensure the ACCC can protect Australian consumers from such fraud. The first ACCC letter purportedly sent to me in 2011 never arrived (lost in the post) and when I again contacted the ACCC, for three days before the emailed delivery of the letter, I while here in Thailand, experienced while I was in the street & forced to pass close by, a large man (not Thai) shouting “FUCK OFF” into my ear as he spoke on his mobile phone. From then on I took another route to the restaurant where I ate. Verbal advice of 24 February 2011 ACCC officer given by ACCC officer Keith Gunton during a telephone conversation was “Crown indemnity for government authority” which he assured me was confirmed in the letter that was sent & not yet received. It wasn’t.
The Australian Press Council (APC) and Australian news media (News Ltd.) corruption
2012 February 2012 I had correspondence with the Australian Press Council’s (APC) Jack Herman and provided him with details APC member (Rupert Murdoch’s) News Ltd. corruption.
APC employee Jack Herman seemed to be most focused on issues relating to Frank Carbone and sent me a 7 paged computer generated newstext.com list, printed 3 February 2012, of newspaper articles found (published) using search terms “Frank Carbone” from August 1994 to September 1999 (file ‘APC News Ltd newstext 3.2.12’). Jack Herman’s APC (email@example.com) email dated 15 February 2012 and the newstext.com.au pages listing news articles found using search terms ‘Frank Carbone’ [attached to the APC email] can be viewed at https://rjrbtsrupertsfirstnewspaper.wordpress.com/2015/07/09/australian-newspapers-news-articles-published-erased-from-the-now-fake-records-of-newspapers-published-sold-as-archives-also-exported-to-the-uk-listed-incomplete/ at which the contradicting Australian Competition & Consumer Commission [ACCC claim that the sale of newspaper archives is not commercial activity trade or commerce] letter can also be viewed.
APC’s Jack Herman email also refers to an Internet website that states that Adelaide’s News Ltd. afternoon daily tabloid newspaper the ‘News’ was sold by Rupert Murdoch and closed in 1992. The ‘News’ newspaper was closed in 1998 less than a year before the morning daily News Ltd. broadsheet format ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper became a tabloid format. Rupert Murdoch’s face appeared on Adelaide’s free-to-air television twice during 1998 to announce his decisions. The APC (Jack Herman) confirmed that the information (documents) I had sent to him had been provided to ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper. ‘The Advertiser’ and News Ltd. has known of the evidence of their corruption and the fake records of Australian newspapers published sold by Australian public libraries, for many years. They do not deny the facts.
During one of several telephone conversations that I had with the APC’s Jack Herman, I advised him that according to the computer generated printout dated 3 February 2012 that he had provided to me, there was no ‘The Advertiser’ News Ltd. news article published that named Frank Carbone as ever having been arrested with co-accused fellow ‘Trimboli Crime Syndicate’ crime gang members for amphetamines although he clearly was arrested for that crime with his crime gang associates.
The APC’s Jack Herman, who was the only person I had raised and discussed this particular anomaly with, had no immediate answer to explain that problem. He didn’t claim that the computer had made an error or suggest any other explanation. The APC in a sense acknowledges Australian news media corruption that needs to be investigated by claiming that they issues are beyond their “remit” to investigate. As far as I am aware, the APC have not referred any issues to any law enforcement authority but in the email dated 15 February 2012, with which Jack Herman provided the 7 paged computer generated newstext.com list of newspaper articles found (published) using search terms “Frank Carbone”, the APC also writes that “Apart from bringing your concerns o [typo –‘to’] the newspaper’s attention, which I have done, there is no further action I can take.” I had over many years spoken to News Ltd.’s Adelaide employees, journalists & editors whom were well aware of the corruption of News Ltd. newspapers.
The Australian Press Council (APC) insists that “The question of on-sold newspaper archives is clearly a question related to commercial operations and does not relate to the newspaper’s on-going journalism.” in APC email dated 9 February 2012.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) in a letter dated 31 Jan 2011 (the first letter lost in the post) headed ‘Concerns about record keeping at the State Library of South Australia and other libraries’ in referring to the “keeping of false records of newspapers by various state and federal libraries” and “anti-competitive and misleading conduct by newspaper publishers” [the term ‘sale’ & reference to ‘news media co-operation in deception’ are avoided] states the issues & evidence of crimes I’ve referred to are “unlikely to be characterised as conduct that is in ‘trade or commerce’ under the TPA as it does not have the usual hallmarks of commercial activity.”
Australian Press Council APC and the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission ACCC
The APC cannot act [investigate or comment] because the issues are matters of ”commercial operations and does not relate to the newspaper’s on-going journalism.” (news media journalism ethics & code of conduct?) AND
the ACCC cannot act [investigate crimes of which consumers are victims] because the issues are not ‘trade or commerce’ and do “not have the usual hallmarks of commercial activity”.
May 2012 I returned to Australia for 5 months. On 28 May 2012 Australian federal Assistant Treasurer and Minister Assisting for Deregulation David Bradbury MP signed a letter that was sent to my Thailand postal address.
In October 2012 I returned to Thailand after 5 months in Australia during which no progress was made in having Australian authorities acknowledge Australian corruption.
Upon my return to Thailand I discovered that I had mail sent from Australia to my Thailand postal address. The letter from ‘David Bradbury MP Australian federal Assistant Treasurer and Minister Assisting for Deregulation’ is dated 28 May 2012 one week after I had left Thailand to stay in Australia for 5 months.
David Bradbury MP in his letter dated 28 May 2012 [file ‘Bradbury 28 May 2012 ACCC’] apologises for the delay in responding to my correspondence of 18 November 2011 raising the issue of Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) corruption regarding the decision to take no action concerning the evidence of the fake records of newspapers published fraudulently sold by Australian state and national public libraries as authentic archives of newspapers published. In his letter he writes referring to the ACCC
“As an independent authority, I cannot direct the ACCC to legal action on a particular matter.” and “I note that it is open to you to take your concerns in relation to the conduct of the State Library of South Australia to the courts. The CCA allows any person to take action seeking that the conduct of concern be declared illegal by the federal court”
2012 November 2012 – During late November 2012 I scanned, for storage on my PCs, all A3 size format documents that I still had using an A3 sized scanner. All A3 sized documents previously stored on my PCs & on external storage (news articles from records of libraries & some originals) were two halves of A4 format scanned by an A4 sized scanner.
Within a few days I returned to my rented room in Thailand and found that someone in my absence had placed amongst my possessions, an A3 sized document that was purportedly a front page news article published by News Ltd.’s Adelaide SA ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper dated 10 January 1996 (see file ‘Carbone Amphetamines 10 Jan 1996 pg 1’) This news article marked as published 10 January 1996 is headlined “Court told of phone calls ‘Fears’ for drug case witness”, had a photograph of “Franceso Carbone and Severio Catanzariti” handcuffed together “arriving for a court appearance last week”.
This copy of a newspaper article now allegedly published 10 January 1996 naming Francesco (Frank) Carbone as one of those arrested for $40 Million of amphetamines, does not appear in the newstext.com.au list (search terms ‘Frank Carbone’)printed 3 February 2012 under any date. (file ‘APC News Ltd newstext 3.2.12’) I had in the past had copies of this newspaper page that I had obtained from the false records for newspapers published (fake archives) within Australian public libraries but they with other documents had been stolen. I had kept copies of the same newspaper article when it was originally published on paper in January 1994 less than a month after I had during December 1993 met Sam Catanzaretti while I was confined in a 2 person Yatala maximum security jail cell with him over Christmas and during the 1993 SA state election that resulted in the change of government to Premier Dean Brown’s Liberal party with the MP for my electorate of ‘Waite’ Stephen Baker MP becoming SA’s state Treasurer.
Within a few days of this document being placed in my rented room [Thailand] in my absence (late November 2012), a man who insisted on talking to me appeared at the table (of a café) next to mine where each morning and afternoon I drank coffee. I recognized that person as Saverio (or Severio – Sam) Catanzaretti (Catanzariti) whom I had not seen since December 1993 in Adelaide’s Yatala prison. I wasn’t prepared to accept that it was him until I had further consideration, more conversations and the opportunity to listen to him and observe him & his mannerisms. He at first introduced himself not by name but by shoulder-surfing a view of the letter from David Bradbury MP dated 28 May 2012 [sent to my Thailand postal address a week after I arrived in Australia to stay for 5 months], observing that it had the Australian government letterhead (the Kangaroo and Emu) and saying “I hope that it doesn’t involve a court case, they can take years”. He then gave me an unlikely account of his life in Australia saying that he lived in Melbourne and “Adelaide, yeah I went there once”.
Each day he was constantly there at the café and when I varied my times of attending he arrived late and out of breath. There can be no doubt that it was (is) him. He claimed (like other stalkers I have encountered) that he “can make Thailand people do anything he wants because they are poor and very corrupt”. His later remarks to me and conversations with his Italian speaking friends also confirmed who he was. I said nothing to indicate that I had recognized who he was. On one occasion he and friends discussed a purported newspaper article referring to a man jumping from a nine story building to avoid a bomb. They could have discussed this fantasy newspaper article in their preferred language, Italian, but that would have pointless because I wouldn’t have been able to understand what they were saying. [Was the man jumping from a building the actor Tom Kruise who couldn’t disarm the bomb which had a digital timer?]
It would seem not to be a coincidence that Catanzaretti would appear at the table next to mine in a small café, in a large city in a foreign country, just days after a copy of the news article referring to him that I knew to be fake (false date) of nearly two decades earlier was left in my room in my absence only days earlier. Or that the news article is not on the newspaper’s computer list [of 10 months early] printed 3 Feb. 2012 & provided to me by the APC.
It is significant that the Adelaide news article headlined “Court told of phone calls ‘Fears for drug case witness” is relevant to discussions I had with the Australian Press Council’s (Jack Herman) regarding the anomalies* caused by altered records of newspapers published & that he had brought my “concerns to the newspapers attention” after indicating that they were “outside the Council’s remit” to investigate. That the computer generated newstext.com.au [Murdoch’s News Ltd.]list of newspaper articles found with search terms ‘Frank Carbone’, provided by Australian Press Council’s (Jack Herman), does not include any reference to Carbone’s arrest for amphetamines with his organized crime gang member associates, was something that I only ever discussed with the APCs Jack Herman, after he claimed to bring the evidence of fake archives of newspapers (news articles published erased) to the attention of the newspaper.
Catanzaretti made it clear that he could locate me, was in Thailand to threaten me, and that I shouldn’t be attempting to discuss with anyone, our December 1993 jail cell conversations. At one point he said “You know when this is all over we’ll wonder why we let things get this far.” seemingly suggesting that we could be friends. A truly insane suggestion.
Catanzaretti & his associates remained in Thailand (Pattaya city) throughout December 2012 until at least into February 2013. During the first week of January 2013 I left Thailand for a week in Hong Kong, hopeful that Catanzaretti would have left Thailand when I returned. To limit the possibility of the hacker of my PCs (associated with stalkers who have demonstrated knowledge of my emails) gaining knowledge of my travel plans or detection of any Internet booked flight to Hong Kong, I used a travel agent of which the city in which I live had many. While booking the flight, an associate of Sam Catanzaretti (who appeared to be his ‘Lieutenant” go-for man) came into the Travel Agent office and asked for directions to Tuk-Com. Tuk Com (Tuk=every .com – selling mobile phones, PCs, software etc.) is a large building painted red with a huge sign ‘Tuk.com’ less than fifty metres from where this man had coffee with Catanzaretti every day. The intention was to demonstrate that I was being stalked by people associated with Catanzaretti. When I returned to Thailand from Hong Kong, Sam Catanzareti was still turning up at the café every day. I found another café to have coffee.
December 2013 – I returned to the same café in October 2013 and Catanzaretti did not appear again until December 2013. On the anniversary of his first threat of December 1993 “You better be straight. If you’re not straight you’ll be floating down the river.” he did in December 2013 issue a more explicate death threat screaming “I’ll top you you cunt*”. His words were audible enough to be recognized although less aggression would have made them clearer. His fat finger in my face and aggressive stance standing over me made his intention quite clear. His threats were even more explicate than those made during December 1993 and late 2012 by his being able to locate me in Thailand and from what he had said.
I considered the possibility that this may be the reply that I haven’t directly formerly had from Australian authorities Attorney Generals (& Former Att. Gen.s) Brandis, Dreyfus, Roxon, McClelland, (& in SA) Rau (& others) SA Premier Weatherill, SA & federal Liberal/Labor MPs Ridgeway, Senator Chris Pyne, SA Police Commissioner Mal Hyde & others, all of who know of the corruption I have described in my unanswered correspondence to them. The timing of Catanzaretti’s November 2012 appearance and then December 2013 reappearance in Thailand appears to be connected to my communications with the Australian Press Council concerning Australian news media corruption that is beyond the APC’s ‘remit’ to investigate .
Australia’s taxpayer funded news media the Australian Broadcasting Corporation [ABC – has an alliance with Murdoch’s News Ltd. [renamed news Corp. Aust.] to deceive the public] has in November 2013 reported Saverio Catanzareti as being in custody, bail refused, awaiting trial for drugs charges- while he was in Thailand. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-11-26/drug-trafficking-accused-freed-on-bail/5116408 November 2013 ‘Drug trafficking accused freed on bail’ referring to Antonio Catanzariti.
“The man’s brother, Saverio Catanzariti, remains in custody.” is lie. The ABC does not reply to correspondence providing evidence of their taxpayer funded corruption and deceit of Australians.
The ABC website has since become inaccessible [unavailable]after I referred to it in correspondence to Interpol that has also been made available to Australia’s federal Attorney(s) General (past and present), other politicians and law enforcement (Police) Commissioners in correspondence never acknowledged. The full text of the ABC Internet website can be viewed below within my correspondence to Interpol. The name of Catanzareti’s crime gang that killed police officer Bowen is ‘Ndrangheta [which I could not pronounce & had no interest learning of in Dec. 1993 Adelaide jail cell conversation with Saverio (Sam) Catanzariti] Italian/Calabrese organised crime http://www.theguardian.com/world/2014/jun/22/pope-francis-excommunicates-mafia “Pope Francis ‘excommunicates’ mafia”. Australia’s law enforcement, news media & government(s) corruption [fake archives of newspapers published exported to the UK] are matters of International crime worthy of Interpol’s attention.
While during January 2013 I was in Hong Kong I again sent the same email previously sent in December 2012, to Australian federal Attorney General Nicola Roxon, Australian federal Police Commissioner Negus, UK Minister for Culture Ed Vaisey, UK Prime Minster Cameron and others referring to Australian corruption exported to the UK (the fake ‘archives of newspapers sold by Australian Libraries’ & British Libraries UK London Colindale).
2013 Attorney General Roxon – In February 2013 I received a letter dated 4 February 2013 from the office of Attorney General Nicola Roxon MP (ATT. Gen. ref. MC13/00538 file ‘Roxon 4 Feb 2013’) referring to my letter of 8 January 2013. The letter while evading any of the specifics of the evidence of Australian corruption exported to foreign countries (e.g. the UK), it does refer to “allegations of corruption and falsified newspaper records”, “to corruption on the part of police and prosecutors involved in investigating the murder of Geoffrey Bowen” and “allegations of corruption in media reporting on the subject of Bowen’s murder and debts of the State Bank of South Australia”.
The letter states that “you might like to refer your concerns to the Australian Commission for Law Enforcement Integrity (ACLEI)” and “The Australian Press Council is responsible for responding to complaints about Australian print media. I note that you have already referred your concerns to the Australian Press Council.” The letter’s author is said to be A/g Assistant Secretary Criminal law and law Enforcement Branch Lucinda Atkinson who claims to have been asked by the Attorney General to respond on her behalf.
February 2013 – I later received a letter from the UK’s ‘department for culture, media and sport’ dated 12 December 2012 (ref. 220989/dm/13 – delivered by email in Feb 2013 after my Jan 2013 correspondence to Roxon, UK PM Cameron & others) referring to my “email of 7 December to the Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, Ed Vaisey MP, about the British Libraries (BL) UK records of newspapers published in Australia.” The letter states “The accuracy of newspapers provided by the British Libraries (BL) is a management issue which is primarily the responsibility of BL itself. BL is independent from government and if you wish to do so, you should make your concerns known to the management team at: Customer-Services@bl.uk. The unsigned letter’s author is said to be ‘Dempster Marples Library and Arts Policy Officer’ who claims to have been asked to reply, by someone he does not identify.
The letters from the Australian Attorney General Nicola Roxon and Dempster Marples Library and Arts Policy Officer [on behalf of UK Min. of department for culture, media and sport Ed Vaisey MP] can be viewed below on this website.
March 2013 In March 2013 I received a letter dated 22 March 2013 from the Australian Federal Police [AFP ref. MC13/2013] Policy and Governance signed by Peter Whowell Manager Government Relations claiming to be replying to my correspondence to Australian Federal Attorney General Mark Dreyfus QC MP. Mr Whowell states that the issues that I have raised [Australian corruption and crimes of Australian national significance involving Australian national authorities – concerning events in Adelaide South Australia & fake archives of Australian newspapers sold throughout Australia & also exported to the UK] do [does] “not fall within the Commonwealth jurisdiction. Any alleged offences fall within the jurisdiction of the state or territory which they occur, in this case South Australia and should be reported to South Australia Police (SAPOL).” Australian Federal Attorney General Mark Dreyfus QC declined to endorse the view of the author of this letter or reply to correspondence. [file ‘Dreyfus AFP reply 22 March 2013’] South Australia Police (SAPOL), SAPOL Commissioner Mal Hyde, Mark Dreyfus QC MP and others who decline to directly acknowledge the evidence of facts I have presented in my correspondence, may see a need to preserve the future option of claiming ignorance of the issues, as difficult as it would be to believe any such claim.
Australian Attorney General Mark Dreyfus QC MP, the Australian federal police, the Australian Crime Commission [ACC also known as the National Crime Authority NCA – Adelaide bombing murder victim Geoffrey Bowen’s employer when he was killed] and other authorities are well aware the efforts to conceal Australian law enforcement & government corruption of national significance involving Australian federal authorities & crimes has required the co-operation of Australian states and coordination by an Australian national federal authority.
2013 In September 2013 South Australia finally established an “Independent Commission Against Corruption” SA Police Officer Grant Moyle became the SA ICAC Chief Investigator for ICAC. Grant Moyle being a SA Police officer for decades & officer in charge of the Major Crime Taskforce investigating the “unsolved” Adelaide NCA bombing murder of Geoffrey Bowen, must undoubtedly be aware of the facts of his murder, the corruption of the investigation into the crime & the details of the failed prosecution of the bomber that ended with the September 1996 ‘nolle prosequi’ court order. The SA ICAC Commissioner appointed by the SA government whose ALP political party leader Premier Jay Weatherill was an MP in government when the NCA bombing occurred, is ICAC Commissioner Bruce Lander who has had a previous involvement with corruption as the purported judge whom I appeared before in 1994. SA ICAC has refused to investigate my complaint lodged in September 2013 after rewriting my complaint in order to justify their decision. (see file ‘SA ICAC response 30 Oct 2013’)
An obvious example of the rewriting of my complaint is the changing of my words “State Library of SA” (ref. fake records of newspapers published) to “State records” office that “do not sell newspapers or archives”. The SA office of State records does exist and has nothing to do with the State Library of SA and the fake records of newspapers published that it sells as archives. SA ICAC and SA ICAC Commissioner Bruce Lander has threatened me with criminal prosecution for disclosing to others, details of the September 2013 complaint that I had made to SA ICAC [& SA ICAC responses], even though the complaint that SA ICAC accepted was not, after it was rewritten by SA ICAC, the complaint that I had made.
2013 On 6 December 2013 the News South Wales ICAC refused to investigate Australian national corruption that involves the corruption of the records of Australian newspapers published sold by the State Library of NSW. See letter dated 6 December 2013 ref. E05/2087 file ‘NSW ICAC 6 Dec 2013 Comm Ipp reply’.
All authorities in Australia in positions of public trust – Police Commissioners, Law enforcement, Ministers of Dept.s & CEO’s, Prosecution Director’s, Legal access organisations, judiciary, Complaint investigations CEOs, Lawyers (appoints as Queen’s Counsels), Royal Commissioners, Independent Commissioners Against Corruption (ICAC’s), Coroner’s, Chairpersons of committees & committee members in positions of authority and public trust – are appointed by governments.
Australian governments can either be of the Australian Labor Party (ALP) or the Australian National/Liberal party (NLP). They are as corrupt as each other.
Many of these authorities are aware of the facts of Australian corruption & the efforts to deceive the Australian public. The issues remain unresolved and unacknowledged.
I have for the last four years experienced a great deal of hacking of my computers, Internet connections, email, websites I access and websites that I create.
November 2013 – Toshiba enables International hackers [/stalkers] of my PCs
During November 2013 I travelled to Singapore to deliver my 2 Toshiba PCs to Toshiba service centre Singapore to consult Toshiba & attempt to eliminate the problems I had been experiencing with hackers able to gain remote access to my PCs. Toshiba Singapore PC technician ‘Meena’ while understanding my objectives accepted $320 [Singapore] to perform work on my 2 PCs. The work was not done but PC technicians Meena did install a ‘Windows Wi-Fi miniport adapter’, interfere with my Microsoft Windows operating system software & create a user named “User” [later detected by Kaspersky software & not visible in MS Windows explorer] that some months later I found [network] connected to my PCs via the ‘Windows Wi-Fi miniport adapter’ & able to remotely access & control my PCs. Toshiba can, but refuses to, identify my stalkers/hackers that Toshiba employee Meena enabled. More information can be seen at https://rjrbtsrupertsfirstnewspaper.wordpress.com/2015/09/30/toshiba-untrustworthy/ . Toshiba has been provided with the evidence of its employee’s corruption.
During the first days of July 2014 I discovered that I was connected to a ‘Network’ via a ‘Windows Virtual Wi-Fi Network Adaptor’. I did not create this network connection. After discovering the network connection & ‘Windows Virtual Wi-Fi Network Adaptor’ (on 2 PCs) I disconnected & deleted them and found a User (named ‘User) on the PCs, that could not be seen in my views of corrupt MS Windows, but was detected & could be seen through Kaspersky Internet Security software. I have also through Kaspersky ‘Parental Control’ [possibly] prevented ‘User’ from accessing the PCs and by doing so have seen that user ‘User’ (undetectable in MS Windows) was the user ‘Jak’ (seen in MS Windows) that I had created & had then had to abandon. Preventing ‘User’ access also prevents ‘Jak’ access.
March 2015 I again travelled to Singapore in March 2015. After again visiting Toshiba PC technician ‘Meena’ who was still not prepared to provide me with any information but did say “You have to stop trying to expose this, they have all your passwords.”
Toshiba Singapore service centre has in 2015 expressed an interest in investigating the evidence of Toshiba Singapore service centre corruption (false information provided to me and failure to do work for which I had paid) that includes their Nov. 2013 installation of a ‘Windows Virtual Wi-Fi miniport adapter’ and setting up a User [obscured in the view of Windows but seen through Kaspersky software] who used it with a network connection to access & hack my PCs. Toshiba S-E Asia regional office to which my correspondence was “escalated” appears to since be avoiding communication with me.
Communication with Interpol – ‘Ndrangheta organised crime Australia and Australian crimes/corruption exported to the UK
For several months (Aug. to Nov. 2014) the following text could not be sent to Interpol through the Interpol contact website with my own personal Computers using three different Internet Service Providers or any of many Internet cafes. All attempts to do so returned the message ‘The Server cannot complete your request – please try again later’ I have since these failures, successfully in Nov. 2014 sent the text in a zipped file with all documents that are referred to. I have also sent the same information & documentation by post in March 2015.
My correspondence to Interpol [appearing below] has never been acknowledged by Interpol as having been received. I have also since then provided the same text and documents to Australian politicians, SA state and federal police commissioners and the Australian Securities and Investment Commission ASIC.
My correspondence to Interpol has also in 2015 been re-sent as updated with March 2015 correspondence I have received from ASIC and information* relating to William Turners’ Pro-Image studios, ASIC letter dated 4 March 2015 ASIC ref. 4345/15 file ‘ASIC 4 March 2015 ref. 4345-15’ and my correspondence to Toshiba which Toshiba has expressed an interest in investigating & has “escalated’ to the S-E Asia Regional Office.
Interpol updated – Aug 2015 with the more complete Marino Rocks marina in brief information –
[*“Pro-Image Studios Ltd. records a profit of almost $20 million for the financial year 1987/1988” “a loss of approximately $2 million was disclosed in the management accounts” http://www.aic.gov.au/media_library/conferences/business/parker.pdf] and the ASIC letter dated 4 March 2015 ASIC ref. 4345/15 file ‘ASIC 4 March 2015 ref. 4345-15’]
The original communication to Interpol [with all relevant documents listed] appears below.
[file name] ‘For Interpol Aug 2014’ sent to Interpol by website & by post/mail [later updated with ASC information]
An international criminal conspiracy to conceal Australian crimes & details of crimes (some involving the ‘Ndrangheta Italian mafia & its corrupt relationship to Australian law enforcement), corruption and maladministration of Australian law enforcement, governments and news media that involves the export of false records of Australian newspapers published to the United Kingdom (British Libraries UK London Colindale) & the falsification of records of UK newspapers published.
The sale of false archives of newspapers published by Australian state & national public libraries & the British Libraries UK London Colindale intended to facilitate the concealment of Australian & international crimes & corruption.
Interpol Sirs and Madams,
My name is Roger Bates. I am an Australian living in Thailand and previously a resident of Adelaide South Australia employed by the State Bank of South Australia known as the Savings Bank of SA (SBSA) prior to 1984. On referral from the UK’s NPIOU I am providing to Interpol information with supporting documentation related to Australian crimes and corruption, the perpetrators of which have never been prosecuted, with related Australian national law enforcement corruption concealed by further crimes of an International nature committed in the efforts (a conspiracy) to conceal crimes and corruption.
This correspondence refers to the concealment of crimes, corruption & maladministration of Australian governments, law enforcement and news media involving crimes related to;
1. State Bank of South Australia bankruptcy unaccounted for public debt and
2. The “unsolved” Adelaide SA bombing murder of a police officer, committed by International organised criminals known as ‘Ndrangheta of Italy, with its International connections.
These separate subjects are unrelated but have in common that they are both events that have occurred in the Australian state of South Australia & involve Australian national law enforcement authorities, involve an Adelaide SA Private Investigator/organised crime gang member named Frank Carbone (Italian/Australian ‘Ndrangheta) and both have corruption issues concealed with the assistance of fake records of Australian newspapers published, sold by Australian public libraries as authentic archives, that have been exported to the United Kingdom’s British Libraries UK London Colindale.
Interpol should note that Australian Federal Police (AFP) are corrupt, conspire with others to conceal corruption and cannot be trusted. The AFP declines to allow the public’s reasonable communication on issues of serious crimes & concealment of law enforcement corruption.
The export from Australia of false records of Australian newspapers published and the altering of the records of UK newspapers published that are sold by British libraries UK London Colindale gives cause to understand that the efforts to conceal Australian corruption is an international conspiracy to pervert the course of justice, which Interpol can & should investigate & act upon. The efforts to conceal corruption involve Australia’s News Ltd. (News Corp. Australia) newspapers in acts that US citizen Rupert Murdoch must aware. Mr Murdoch is, according to Internet news media, under investigation by the US FBI concerning his corruption of foreign governments concerning crimes committed in the United Kingdom. The Australian corruption issues involving Rupert Murdoch’s Australian news media to which I refer occurred during the late 1980s through to the 1990s & continue today, & are issues involving his corruption of foreign governments, in this case Australia, after he became a US citizen. The Australian national & International crimes I describe relate to Adelaide South Australia where Rupert Murdoch began his news media career with his first newspaper the afternoon daily tabloid the ‘News’ and where the news media company he controls, News Corp Aust., continues to maintain his News Corp. Australia (News Ltd.) SA state newspaper publishing monopoly. It is appropriate that Interpol provided the information within this correspondence to US authorities including the FBI so they may give it consideration and investigate.
On the 2 March 1992 a bomb was detonated in the Adelaide office of the Australian National Crime Authority (NCA – since 2001 known as the Australian Crime Commission ACC) killing a police officer (Geoffrey Bowen) & injuring a lawyer named Peter Wallis. Within days of the event Australian news media (Adelaide’s News Ltd.’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper) published the last words NCA officer Bowen had in conversation with NCA lawyer Peter Wallis. They were “I hope this isn’t a bomb” said as he opened a package, that was not inspected by any security, that was delivered to him that morning. Seconds later he was dead & Peter Wallis was seriously injured by an incendiary bomb made of red phosphorus. A week later I was in Adelaide and saw the burnt out upper floor of the building in which officer Bowen died. A man named Dominic Perre was within two weeks arrested for the bombing & named in news articles published. Nearly two years after the bombing, during December 1993 (a state election month in SA), I was in Adelaide’s ‘Yatala’ maximum security prison held without trial bail having been refused bail, accused of threatening to kill a lawyer who later in August 1994 was convicted of fraud & jailed. During the week of Christmas 1993 I lived in a two person jail cell with Saverio (Sam) Catanzaretti who after offering me a job selling amphetamines, claimed to be an associate of the NCA bomber and disclosed his and his crime gang’s motivation for the bombing murder of NCA officer Bowen. Geoffrey Bowen was killed because he failed to comply with the agreed terms of his corruption after accepting money from his eventual killers, for the purpose of advising them of any law enforcement discovery of a cannabis crop valued at many millions of dollars they had grown during 1988 at Hidden Valley in Australia’s Northern Territory.
Within an hour of arrival in the jail cell Catanzaretti received a visit from a high ranking prison officer in an elaborate uniform who said to him “Sam, is there anything I can do for you, anything that I can get you?”, to which Sam replied “Nah, I’m alright”. When I later asked “How he knew the prison officer & why was he so friendly?” Sam replied that “he knew all the prison officers from when he was a kid growing up visiting his father who had been jailed for many years for growing marijuana”. His angry expression at remembering his childhood visits to his father was obvious. In jail cell conversations Sam also referred to his wife’s name being “Trimboli” before she married & that they had a son whom I assumed was very young. The newspapers had named the NCA bomber’s crime gang as the “Trimboli crime syndicate” after Robert Trimboli a notorious gangster who had died years earlier, a fugitive from justice wanted for murder. Sam said that the body of Donald Mc Kay (never discovered murder victim of Robert Trimboli) “was in the river” referring to the town NSW – Victoria border town of Griffith. Sam also claimed “we have police working for us” to reassure me after I declined his offer of a job selling amphetamines. He referred to his Calibres ancestry & the name of his mafia gang (I wasn’t at all interested) as ‘Ndrangheta which he tried & failed to have me pronounce correctly.
The disclosure of his gang’s motivation for murdering police officer Geoffrey Bowen was made when Sam claimed to have paid the NCA to protect his 1988 Cannabis crop to which I responded, “The NCA, you don’t trust that bunch of arseholes, let me guess, he took your money and arranged to have you arrested.” to which he replied “So we blew him up”. I told him to “shut up, the walls have ears in this place” and that I didn’t want to know his business. I could still believe that his claims were lies to big-note himself in prison. A few days later he became threatening and aggressive saying “You better be straight. If you’re not straight you’ll be floating down the river. You better not be working for Morabido.”
I had explained to Sam that I was held without trial, accused of threatening to kill a solicitor but was really there because I was considered a potential problem during an election month regarding my knowing some details of the State Bank of SA bankruptcy public debt never disclosed. “I know where the money went”. I congratulated Sam, as a taxpayer, being a part owner of a marina development (the Marino Rock marina) that was never built despite we all as taxpayers, collectively paying tens of millions of dollars for it to be built. I also told him of how my sworn testimony (July 1991 Bates versus SBSA) referring to the relationship between marina developers (Turner & Burloch) & the State Bank of SA had been corruptly tampered with to ensure it wasn’t within the record of proceedings.
I was released on bail on the 4 January 1994 (by Judge Christopher Legoe) with, on this occasion, no objections from SA Police or Department of Public Prosecution prosecutors. During January 1994 the alleged (March 1992) NCA bomber was named in newspaper articles as having been arrested for amphetamines. A temporary court suppression order prevented publication of the names of his co-accused whose photograph with pixels concealing their identity was published as front page news. Two weeks later the court suppression order expired & the names of NCA bomber Dominic Perre’s co-accused arrested with him for amphetamines were disclosed as Frank Carbone & Saverio Catanzaretti. His job offer of selling his amphetamines was genuine & claim to be an associate of the NCA bomber was true. According to news reports of their trial the amphetamines were said to have been “cooked” (manufactured) by police of the joint SA Police/NCA investigation of the NCA bombing who were attempting to link the source of red phosphorus used in the bomb to that which was used for amphetamine production. The trial for murder of the NCA bomber was at the time of his trial for amphetamines, yet to occur. Dominic Perre was convicted for the amphetamines while Carbone & Catanzaretti were acquitted. Catanzaretti’s sworn testimony at trial that he was “soldier” & a “Lieutenant” in the gang’s organisation was published as front page headline news in Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper & has since been erased from the records of newspapers published sold by Australian public libraries as newspaper archives.
During July 1995 front page newspaper articles (see file ‘Carbone SAPOL July 1995’) were published by Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper with photographs of Frank Carbone referring to him as being charged with co-accused police officers with corruption offences “as a result of an investigations into complaints lodged with the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) in June 1993”. I recognised Frank Carbone as a person whom had been constantly following me since 1986 (when I was given SBSA Corporate loans (& other) information & questioned the wisdom of SBSA management decisions) with associates whom (I later discovered) were SA Police Officers who eventually performed a ‘Home Invasion’ on the night of 10 July 1992 & stole SBSA letterhead documents before I could provide them to a journalist on Monday 13 July 1992. (see file ‘Home Invasion 10 July 1992’)I had lodged complaints with the SA PCA in June and July 1992 (see file ‘PCA.2.11.1992’). The PCA after claiming that they had used “defective” recording equipment to accept my complaints, claimed a secret police report written by SAPOL Internal Investigation Branch Officers John Tank & Lyn Strange had exonerated all police from any impropriety, re-opened the complaints in June 1993 after I provided them with copies of pages of a court transcript (files ‘SAPOL PC Shearn pg27’ & ‘SAPOL PC Shearn pg28’) referring in sworn testimony to dangerous acts purportedly undertaken by SA police that were clearly not within SA police procedure, committed on 10 July 1992. The acts of SA Police described did occur (10 July 1992 Home Invasion) but did not involve the police testifying in court who had never been to my home. The link between the SAPOL Tank/Strange investigation and corruption charges faced by Frank Carbone is demonstrated by a SA Police internal Investigation Branch letter dated 13 August 1997 file ‘SAPOL IIB Tank Strange PCA 13 Aug 1997’ referring to an “investigation that cannot commence until the judicial process in which the Tank/Strange judgment was given is finalised.” that refers to the decision that evidence presented in court to convict Frank Carbone & co-accused SA Police on corruption charges was obtained illegally and was inadmissible at trial. See file ‘Carbone SAPOL corruption May 1997’. Also file ‘SA PCA 30.3.2005 Wainwright’ a letter from the SA PCA falsely claiming to include with it copies of PCA correspondence to me dated 5 Nov. 2005 and 18 Nov 2005. The SA police corruption issues I had brought to the attention of the Police Complaints Authority have never been addressed by any complaint authority or police.
During September 1996 the NCA bomber’s trial for the March 1992 murder of policeman Geoffrey Bowen ended with a ‘nolle prosequi’ court order after testimony of a Yatala prison officer claiming to have seen the bomber buying the bomb parts was shown to be perjury after defence counsel presented employment records showing that the man was at work at that time. I was at that time detained at a medium security prison after it was said that my Community Service Work supervisor Christopher Legoe (the judge who allowed my release from jail on bail on 4 Jan. 1994 – he later returned to work as a judge) was an inadequate supervisor & my work was not recognised resulting in my being in breach of the terms of my suspended jail sentence imposed in 1994. The August 1996 decision to return me to jail was overturned in February 1997. SA Police Commissioner David Hunt retired in September 1996 and Police Commissioner Mal Hyde was appointed. Not until mid-1997 was I aware of the failure to convict the NCA bomber for murder & the September 1996 ‘nolle prosequi’ court order that ended the trial. SA Police (SAPOL) refuse to provide any acknowledgement of being aware of the PCA document dated 2 Nov. 1992 (see file ‘PCA.2.11.1992’) referring to their “defective” recording equipment used to accept my complaints of June 1992 & July 1992. The SBSA letterhead documents stolen by SA Police during the 10 July 1992 ‘Home Invasion’ were relevant to the complaint I had lodged with the PCA in June 1992.
In March 1997 the first newspaper article referring to the Adelaide SA NCA bombing as an event of 2 March 1994 was published. It was written by News Ltd.’s ‘The Advertiser’ journalist Silvia Kriven & appeared as a minor news item far from the front page. SA Police have refuse to provide written confirmation of their mid-1997 verbal advice that they are justified in refusing to allow me to provide them with my written formal statement detailing the December 1993 prison cell conversation I had with Catanzaretti in which he disclosed the motivation for the NCA bombing murder of officer Bowen, “because the December 1993 conversations were before the bombing & could not be relevant”.
News Ltd.’s role in blackmailing SA MP Ian Gilfillan (electorate Kangaroo Island). Adelaide’s afternoon daily ‘NEWS’ (News Ltd. tabloid) front page 1997 newspaper article accusing Ian Gilfillan MP of fraud with his electorate expenses.
In 1997 Adelaide’s News Ltd. the ‘News’ newspaper (afternoon daily tabloid) published a full front page news article referring to SA Member of Parliament Ian Gilfillan purportedly having fraudulently claimed electorate expense for living in his Kangaroo Island electorate while he was living at his Adelaide eastern suburbs home. In 1998 SA MP Ian Gilfillan made a speech to SA’s state parliament referring to the NCA Adelaide bombing; http://sa.democrats.org.au/parlt/p1/980707_d.htm as an event of March 1994.
Ian Gilfillan’s (SA MP) made the 1998 speech to SA’s parliament saying “why has there been no coronial inquest into 1994 NCA bombing?”. He was at the time well aware that the Adelaide NCA bombing murder of policeman Geoffrey Bowen was an event of March 1992 while John Bannon was Premier/Treasurer of South Australia. & prior to the December 1993 SA state election. Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper reported the speech the following day in a front page news article, after which I spoke to SA MP Gilfillian by telephoning his electorate office on Kangaroo Island SA, he may have thought that I was one of the many people of his electorate with my surname ‘Bates’, and he accepted my telephone call. I said to him that he “must know that the Adelaide NCA bombing was an event of March 1992 while John Bannon was Premier!” He understood that I was referring to his speech to parliament referring to the false date of 2 March 1994 of the Adelaide NCA bombing murder of policeman Geoffrey Bowen.
He groaned and said “I had to do that.”
I understand that to have meant that he had to do that or face prosecution for fraud over his electorate expenses. The matter of his being accused of fraud as reported by Adelaide’s the ‘News’ (News Ltd.) newspaper was never heard of again. Ian Gilfillan retired from politics soon after. Ian Gilfillan was forced to participate in the conspiracy to conceal the incompetence of the SA DPP’s failed prosecution of police officer Bowen’s murderer due to the maladministration, corruption, mistakes or deliberate acts of SA police/NCA joint investigation into the crime. The September 1996 ‘nolle prosequi’ court order requires that the testimony that was proven to be perjury presented to the court to convict police officer Bowen’s killer, be again presented to the new jury at any restart of the trial. This was never explained to the public in any news media. The question ‘Was the perjury presented a mistake caused by police investigators failures or deliberately presented with the knowledge of police, prosecutors & defense lawyers, that it could be proven to be false, ending the trial & the risk that his killer’s motivation might be publicly exposed?’ remains unanswered. Law enforcement authorities, including Bowen’s employer (NCA later renamed the ACC) at the time of his death, and all others concerned with his murder & failed prosecution of the Adelaide NCA bomber have an interest in concealing the motivation for killing him.
The 1999 SA Coroner’s Inquest into the March 1994 (new & false date) Adelaide SA NCA bombing that was announced as a result of Ian Gilfillan’s 1998 speech to SA’s parliament, was conducted by Coroner Wayne Chivel who was the SA Police Complaints Authority CEO in 1992 when the PCA claimed to have used “defective” recording equipment to accept my complaints of June and July of 1992.
Since the change of the date of police officer Bowen’s murder, Australia now has organized crime gang member Frank Carbone under investigation since June 1993 (a true date – see file ‘Carbone July 1995’) for corruption with co-accused SA police while Bowen’s killers (Carbone’s crime gang) were planning his murder & building the bomb which killed him in March 1994 (the new & false date).
Attachments to this correspondence, including files ‘Death threatDec 2013 Events 1986 to 2013’ & ‘Meeting Catanzaretti prison Dec 1993’ provide details of the crimes & corruption concealed by further crimes of an International nature & significance.
Australian Internet websites have posted news articles referring to crimes of ‘Saverio Catanzareti’ during 2013 – 28 May 2013 http://www.victorharbortimes.com.au/story/1531780/four-suspects-face-court-over-planned-robbery/ and on taxpayer funded ABC website
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-11-26/drug-trafficking-accused-freed-on-bail/5116408 Posted Tue 26 Nov 2013 – reference to ‘Saverio Catanzareti’ Appears below
This ABC website posting has false information – Saverio Catanzaretti (Dec. 1993 prison spelling – he became upset when I referred to him as Catanzarelli) also referred to as ‘Saverio Catanzareti’ & ‘Severio (Sam) Catanzareti’ in the news article falsely dated 10 Jan 1996)
Saverio Catanzaretti whom I met in December 1993 was in Thailand in December 2013 & previously in November 2012 through to at least well into February 2013. The last photograph in Pattaya Thailand that I took of Saverio (Sam) Catanzaretti is still stored on my mobile phone & is dated 24 December 2013 (5.30 PM).
I had a unforgettable week in a jail cell with him during December 1993 & have no doubts from his appearance, manner, voice & what he said that it was him here* in Thailand having come to threaten me over his crimes** in Adelaide SA during 1980s & 1990s that I’ve referred to in email to Australian authorities (police, governments, news media & the Australian Press Council) during the last few years. December 1993 was the first time I ever saw the inside (or outside) of any prison.
here*in Thailand – The table (of a small café) next to me in a large city (Pattaya) in a foreign country (Thailand) 19 years after I’d met him in December 1993 in a 2 person prison cell in Adelaide SA & again during December 2013 (20 years after December 1993). – Undoubtedly more than a coincidence. Someone told him where to locate me.
Crimes** Amphetamines valued at many millions of dollars disclosed at trial as “cooked” by police for the Australian ‘Ndrangheta (Calabria Sth. Italy) mafia responsible for the Adelaide SA NCA bombing murder of a policeman, said to be “unsolved” with the killers never convicted.
This ABC (Australian taxpayer funded) Internet news article looks odd with its limited information it reports. I am aware of the ABC TV having broadcast false & misleading information in the past.
Adelaide SA ABC TV was in 1998 the first television channel to broadcast file footage of the remains of the 2 March 1992 NCA bomb blast re-captioned March 1994 within days of the announcement of a SA Coroner’s Inquest into the March 1994 NCA bombing (new & false date) that was made immediately after the July 1998 speech of SA MP Ian Gilfillan to parliament referring to the NCA Adelaide bombing as an event of March 1994 that was front page news of ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper the following day. Other Adelaide SA TV channels in 1998 broadcast their file footage of the remains of March 1992 NCA bombing uncaptioned before days later rebroadcasting it captioned with the new & false date of March 1994. The ABC Adelaide SA TV broadcast with the false 1994 date of the March 1992 NCA bombing remains, occurred at a time when John Bannon, SA Premier/Treasurer John Bannon at the time of the NCA bombing in 1992 (& other news articles erased from the records – SBSA etc.), was on the Board of the ABC in 1998. The political party in SA’s 1998 government (elected December 1993) was the SA parliamentary Opposition party when the March 1992 NCA bombing occurred but in state government on the date of the new & false date (March 1994) of the Adelaide SA NCA bombing. Many SA MPs of 1992 and 1994 are still members of SA Parliament today in 2014.
News media and the Internet are considered by Australian governments & law enforcement authorities as a convenient means by which false & misleading information can be provided to the Australian public.
The ABC Internet website posting (below) of 26 November 2013 states “Saverio Catanzariti, remains in custody”. Assuming it is the same person (the names are very uncommon in Australia) I met in December 1993 who claimed to be a friend of the NCA bomber, offered me a job selling amphetamines, disclosed the motivation for killing Officer Bowen in March 1992 & was arrested with Perre (the alleged bomber) in January 1994, he would have if allowed bail after this website posting in November 2013, had to have surrendered his passport & have travel restrictions imposed upon him to prevent his absconding as an International fugitive from justice. Australian police would know details of his whereabouts at all times & could confirm he was in Thailand. The same police, news media and politicians are well aware where we (Catanzaretti & I) were (a jail cell in Adelaide) during December 1993. They are committed to the efforts of concealing the police corruption related motivation for the Adelaide SA NCA bombing murder of police officer Geoffrey Bowen.
Catanzaretti & friends recruit Australian police & kill them when their work is unsatisfactory and police then recruit him to assist to conceal for their mutual benefit, their crimes that they have in common. Australian police, politicians, NCA bomber Perre, his crime gang (& defence council) and the judiciary they appeared before all know that murder victim Geoffrey Bowen was killed in March 1992 (not March 1994) and know of the efforts to conceal the motivation of his killers.
Interpol has access to (possibly corrupt) Australian computer files of criminal convictions & records of arrests prior to court appearances and can confirm NCA bomber Perre’s and Catanzaretti’s late 1990s conviction for the 1988 Northern territory (NT) Hidden Valley cannabis crop valued at many millions of dollars, that involved the never publicly disclosed Australian police corruption related motivation for the Adelaide SA NCA bombing murder of police officer Geoffrey Bowen for which his killers have never, and now never will be, convicted. Australian police are unlikely to claim to Interpol, that “Perre & Catanzaretti are entitled to privacy regarding their criminal convictions” as was their verbal advice, unconfirmed in writing, to me. Interpol is capable of requesting Australian Federal Police provide some explanation for their apparent involvement in the International conspiracy to conceal details of Australian crimes & maladministration/corruption of police investigations, including the joint NCA/SAPOL investigation into the Adelaide SA NCA bombing, which involves the export of corruption to foreign countries.
File name – ‘Drug trafficking accused freed on bail Saverio Catanzariti incorrect spelling ABC 26 Nov 2013’
Drug trafficking accused freed on bail
By court reporter James Hancock
Posted Tue 26 Nov 2013, 7:32am AEDT
Map: Keswick 5035
An Adelaide man accused of drug trafficking has been released on bail after the Supreme Court endorsed a magistrate’s ruling.
Antonio Catanzariti, 41, of Torrensville, his brother, sister-in-law and another man are charged over the discovery of about 20,000 ecstasy tablets and 15 kilograms of cannabis at Keswick Railway Station this month.
The South Australian Supreme Court was told the haul had an estimated value of $500,000.
Home detention bail was granted by a magistrate last week but the prosecution appealed to the Supreme Court, citing a risk Catanzariti could offend while on bail.
A lawyer said his client intended pleading not guilty and the case might not be resolved until some time in 2015.
The man’s brother, Saverio Catanzariti, remains in custody.
It is inconceivable that the concealment of Australian corruption (SBSA bankruptcy public debt & matters of police corruption concerning the NCA bombing & the corruption of its investigation) by the use of the fake records of Australian newspapers published (exported to the UK) could have occurred without the knowledge, co-operation & assistance of Rupert Murdoch who must have given his consent to involved News Ltd. news media, Editors & journalists who have an understanding of their own and others’ corruption & its objectives. Rupert Murdoch’s Australian News Ltd. employees could never act without his consent or act against his requirements as they perceive them.
Below – A brief summary of State Bank of SA purportedly illegal “Off Balance Sheet” entity ‘Kabani’ (SBSA bankruptcy now public debt) crimes & corruption concealed by the use of fake records of Australian newspapers published that are sold as archives & have been exported to the UK. Some of the information below was provided to me in 1986 while I was employed by the State Bank of SA & refers to public debt still unaccounted for with details of concealment is assisted by the false records of newspapers published exported from Australia to the British Libraries UK Colindale.

Updated with the 2014/2015 information from ASIC and website http://www.aic.gov.au/media_library/conferences/business/parker.pdf (this information was found 2014 – No Australian news media considered it news worthy in 1987/88)
A referral to Interpol concerning these issues was made by the UK’s National Public Order Intelligence Unit NPIOU whom I’d telephone at the suggestion of the United Kingdom London Police (in a telephone conversation I made to UK London Police after email sent was unanswered) after email I’d sent to UK PM Cameron & others including Ed Vaisey MP UK Min. for Culture responsible for British Libraries UK Colindale (& the fake records of newspapers published that the London Library sells) was unacknowledged other than by a letter received dated 12 Dec. 2012 (file ‘UK govt. reply to fake British Lib archives’) My email to UK PM Cameron & others included documents showing how the UK library records were corrupt to conceal Australian corruption, detailed & supported with documents I had provided (including file ‘Only London NCA bomb UK ref.’). The NPIOU understood nothing of the issues when the referral to Interpol was made. The NPIOU referral to Interpol, seemingly to evade the issues I had raised, seemed absurd at that time, but after some consideration I understand that the issues of crimes & corruption I had raised are matters of International crimes committed, involving International organisations & that Interpol can & should investigate.
Documents attached to this correspondence are limited by your Internet website delivery size limit.
It would be appropriate and helpful if Interpol would allow my further reasonable communication with Interpol for the purpose of my providing further details of these issues & supporting documentation, answering your reasonable questions and having these issues of International crime investigated. Australian authorities (law enforcement, governments and politicians) will not allow such communication to occur, indicating their desire to conceal their impropriety. I request that Interpol acknowledge this communication & facilitate my further communication. If Interpol does not within a few days receive my reply to Interpol correspondence sent to me, you may assume that I did not receive it, did not have the opportunity to read it & that it was hacked from my email.
Documents sent with this correspondence totalling 40-9 mb are listed below & have been sent in three separate zipped files named ‘1.Interpol 10.7mb’, 2.Interpol 13mb’, ‘3.Interpol inc UK 13.2mb’. More documents demonstrating Australia’s international crimes & corruption exported to foreign countries will be made available in future correspondence. Your Interpol co-operation in facilitating my communication would be appreciated.
The information that I am providing is true and accurate.

I was later to discover an Australian ABC news media Internet website news article referring to him as being in custody awaiting trial on Adelaide SA drugs charges during November 2013, bail having been refused, when he was in Thailand.
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2013-11-26/drug-trafficking-accused-freed-on-bail/5116408 This ABC website of 2013 cannot be accessed in 2015. “Antonio Catanzariti, 41, of Torrensville” is referred to as having been allowed bail. “The man’s brother, Saverio Catanzariti, remains in custody.”
SA marina developer William Turner also a Director of Pro-Image Studios Ltd. False and misleading information published by Rupert Murdoch’s first newspaper the ‘News’. The State Bank of SA’s “Off Balance Sheet” relationship with Turner and his debts that became public debt have never been publicly disclosed.
2 October 1990 the State Bank of SA discloses that it has an “Off Balance Sheet” company ‘Kabani’ – the number & purported valuation of the “Off Balance Sheet” companies were to change. News media were never again to refer to SBSA’s “Off Balance Sheet” companies & debts referred to as assets that became public debt still concealed. No efforts to prosecute anyone regarding SBSA’s illegal “Off Balance Sheet” companies were reported by any news media.
18 December 1990 Marina developer Alan Burloch [said to have purchased marina developer William Turner’s assets when he was purportedly bankrupt in October 1989] reported as having withdrew from the marina development.
11 February 1991 News Ltd.’s ‘The Advertiser’ published the news article headlined “Warning signs were there for more than 14 months” referring to previous news articles published. Those news articles have been erased from public accessible records of newspapers published that are now fake ‘archives’ of newspapers sold by Australian state and national public libraries & British Libraries UK London Colindale.
11 February 1991 ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper publishes a news on the State Bank of SA’s taxpayer bailout including in the news article headlined “How SA will fund bank’s rescue” that SBSA Chairman, also BFC Chairman & Director of “Off Balance Sheet” company ‘Kabani’ David Simmons had been appointed to a “A State Bank advisory group” “to ensure the structure and operation of the bank is correct”.
7 November 1991 MY lawyer Richard John of the law firm Duncan, Groom & Hannon [Terry Groom MP of the SA state government] appointed by SA’s Legal Services Commission despite obvious conflicts of interest in my legal action against the State Bank of SA, advised me that he had lost my documentation that I had provided.
19 March 1992 Lawyer Richard John advises me that he has found my documentation that he claimed to have lost. My documents provided to lawyer Richard John were never returned. A had less than 2 weeks earlier discovered that my sworn testimony given in July 1991 had been erased from the records of the forum in which I had given it. Richard John claimed to be a gambling addict when he was convicted of fraud in August 1994 that was unrelated to his having obtained money from me by deceit & later repaying it.
2 November 1992 South Australia’s Police Complaints Authority claims to have used defective recording equipment to accept my complaints of June and July 1992. On 10 July 1992 I had documents stolen during a ‘Home Invasion’ performed by SA police & had no documents to show journalists David Hellaby when he came to my home 13 July 1992. Hellaby had seen William Turner’s bankruptcy file saying it was “the most amazing document he had ever seen, indicating a $30 million debt but had no information identifying his creditors”. Home Invaders of 10 July 1992 had stolen all SBSA letterhead documents that they could find & documents related to my complaint lodged with the SA PCA in June 1992.
June 1993 – pages of an Adelaide magistrates court transcript – a SA Police Constable who had never been to my home claims to have come to my home unarmed and alone on the night of 10 July 1992 to search my home for guns.
June 1993 – Adelaide court transcript pages of perjured testimony of a police officer claiming to on 10 July 1992 have been required to attend my home, by himself & unarmed, to search for guns. 9 pages of court transcript (purchased for $9- per page) were provided to the SA Police Complaints Authority that had claimed that SA police had produced a secret report exonerating police over a 10 July 1992 ‘Home Invasion’ & theft of SBSA letterhead & other documents. The PCA complaints were reopened in June 1993 as a result of these pages of transcripts of sworn testimony.
27 September 1993 – Australian Securities Commission [ASC] media release of 27 September 1993 referring to William Turner as a Director of Pro-Image Studios Ltd. being charged by the ASC with financial crimes. The Adelaide News Ltd newspaper reporting of Turner being charged with crimes by the ASC [the only reason of my being aware of the information & requesting a copy of this document from the ASC] has been erased from the publicly accessible records of newspapers published.
10 November 1996 Australian Securities Commission media release – Crimes for which the ASC has charged William Turner in September 1993 [more than 2 years previously] will not be prosecuted. Adelaide’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper reporting of ASC charges for Turner being dropped, have been erased from publicly accessible records of newspapers published. Only by reading the newspaper article published in November 1995 was I aware of the likely existence of this ASC media release & request a copy.
4 March 2015 – A letter received from an unidentified purported employee of the Australian Securities and Investment Commission [ASIC/ASC] claiming that Pro-Image Studios Ltd. was “deregistered on 19 December 2014” & declining to comment on ASIC/ASC corruption over my communication with the ASIC and its involvement in concealing crimes & corruption that it exists for to prosecute.
4 March 2015 letter from an unidentified ASIC employee [with an illegible signature] claiming to be employed by ASIC Misconduct and Breach Reporting Assessment & Intelligence.
July 1995 Adelaide News Ltd. newspaper articles published July 1995 reporting Private Investigator Frank Carbone & co-accused police officers being charged with corruption offences. Headline “Investigator on corruption charges” – “The detectives were charged as a result of investigations into complaints lodged with the Police Complaints Authority in June 1993.” From these newspaper published photographs of Frank Carbone I was able to identify the name of one of my stalkers (1986 to early 1990s) who I had seen with SA police officers who were the ‘Home Invaders’ of 10 July 1992 who had stolen SBSA letterhead & other documents.
‘The Advertiser’ front page news artcile headlined “Court told of phone calls ‘Fears’ for drug case witness” from the fake ‘archives’ of newspapers published & dated 10 january 1996. The news article was originally published in January 1994 less than a month after I was in December 1993 confined to a Yatala maximum security jail cell with Sam Catanzareti who appears in the photograph as being arrested with crime gang associate Frank Carbone. The news artcile refers to “conspiring to manufacture about $40 million worth of amphetamines”.
‘The Advertiser’ newspaper article that was published on 20 January 1996 with the headline “Police out for revenge on sleuth, court told” Frank Carbone [& Catanzareti] had already by then, according to news media reporting, been ‘acquitted’ of amphetamine charges. The amphetamines were disclosed at trial as having been manufactured by police NCA bombing investigators.
News Ltd. Adelaide news artcile published 10 February 1996 headlined “SM urges forgiveness for policeman” – South Australian Police Detective Grant Gittos is fined $200- with no conviction recorded for celebrating the New Year by repeatedly firing his hand-gun into the air while in a highly populated suburb. Detective Gittos was the leader in the July 1992 ‘Home Invasion’ theft of documents and my arresting officer on occassions that I was arrested. He never had any interest in questioning me. His real name was unknown to me until court trials during 1994. Detective Gittos was also my stalker from 1986 to the early 1990s on occassions seen with Frank Carbone.
A letter dated 14 february 1996 I received from the South Australian Assets Management Corp. [SA state Treasury SAAMC the ‘Bad Bank’ with SBSA bad debt for which SA taxpayers were liable]. The author Andrew G. Anastasiades Head of Treasury & Finance refers to a telephone converstion that I had had with during which I raised the issues of SBSA’ illegal “Off Balance Sheet” relationship with the Marino Rocks marina developers, debts of William Turner’s Pro-Image Studios Ltd. & associated corruption.
‘The Advertiser’ news artcile [fake archives copy] dated 22 May 1997 altered from the original paper published version of that same date. The news article headlined “Judge accuses anti-graft police of ‘cover-up, lying’ ” refers to the corruption of SA police officers Inspector John Tank and Detective Lyn Strange by their illegally obtaining evidence of crime gang member Frank Carbone’s and co-accused SA police crimes. The evidence was ruled inadmissible to convict them. Officers Tank & Strange [photgraphed] who came to my home late at night claiming to be investigating my complaints to the SA PCA were unavailable for any more reasonably time 9 am to 5 pm daytime contact.
A letter dated 13 August 1997 received from the South Australian Police Internal Investigation Branch in reply to my correspondence of 29 June 1997. The author Commander F G Edwards refers to my June & July 1992 complaints lodged with the SA Police Complaints Authority reopened in June 1993 and the ongoing “investigation” that “cannot commence until the judical process in which the Tank/Strange judgement was given has been finalised”, referring to the inadmissibility of evidence illegally obtained by Tank/Strange while investigating crime gang member Frank Carbone & co-accused SA police. Commander Edwards refers to my also sending this letter to the SA Police Complaints Authority that never acknowledged receiving it. No investigation as is referred to ever occurred.
Constant hacking has made making this post to WordPress difficult. The hacking was for 2 days slightly less when using an Internet cae rather than my own PC & Internet connections. Documents below have been added without captions – the documents are decsribed in the text above – to facilitate a more speedy posting of this Timeline of Australian crimes & corruption events. The documents below are intended to demonstrate that all appropriate authorities [Police, politicians of both political parties & others] are aware of the issues of their own and others, sometime political opponents, corruption. This WordPress post – intended to demonstrate Australia’s law enforcement, government[s] and news media corruption, may in the future be improved with more information.
It is clear that the hacker[s] have had remote access to my own PCs and Internet connections but also have remote access to interfere with my using Internet cafes to make posts to WordPress.
Please note that letters from various Australian authorities that can be viewed below, generally misrepresent me and the information that I have provided to those authorities, in order to avoid their obligations and responsibilities of the authors employed by the authorities. Letters from corrupt authorities while addressed to me are intended for their own files and for the purpose of misleading anyone who reads them. It is common for authorities to refer to enclosures in their correspondence when no enclosures were within the letters they have sent.
Communication with the National Crime Authority – This letter misrepresents my communication with the NCA. The author Mr P J Lamb does not mention the conversation that I had with him.
There were no enclosures to this correspondence. THe SA Police Complaints Authorities refuses to provide me with a copy of documents that it claims has already been provided to me.
SAAMC acknowledges receiving my money as payment for a Freedom of Informtion release request. There has never been any FoI release from any South Australian authority.
A letter reiceived via an ACC email address with a demand that I provide ‘a fixed residential address’.
32. ACCC CEO 31 Jan 2011 Letter from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission – Austraalian public libaries selling fake newspaper archives is “not trade or commerce” “under the TPA” [Trade Practices Act] “as it does not have the hallmarks of commercial activity.”
33. APC News Ltd.newstext 3.2.12 Pages of newstext.com.au computer generated list of news articles published in News Ltd. Newspapers & found using search terms ‘Frank Carbone’. These pages were provided by the Australian Press Council [APC] after I provided information to the APC regarding the fake archives of Australian newspapers published and apparent corruption of Australian news media.
The Australian Press Council correspondence dated 15 February 2012 sent to me [newstext.com.au documents attached] can be viewed at https://rjrbtsrupertsfirstnewspaper.wordpress.com/2015/07/09/australian-newspapers-news-articles-published-erased-from-the-now-fake-records-of-newspapers-published-sold-as-archives-also-exported-to-the-uk-listed-incomplete/ Email dated 9 February 2012 sent to me from the Australian Press Council states the APC “deals with the editorial and article sections of newspapers and magazines and does not generally deal with advertising or the commercial operations of publications. The question of on-sold newspaper archives is clearly a question related to commercial operations and does not relate to the newspaper’s on-going journalism.” [bold highlighting added by me]
A letter from Australian federal Assistant Treasurer and Minister Assisting for Deregulation’ is dated 28 May 2012 in reply to my correspondence of November 2011. Minister Bradbury was responsible for the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission that offered the opinion that selling fake records as archives was not illegal under ACCC enforced laws because it doesn’t have the “hallmarks” of commerce. Again the authority (ACCC) to which governments appoint Commissioners, is ‘Independent’ & therefore its decisions [& any apparent corruption] has nothing to do with the Minister, the Department, or the government.
Letter dated 4 February 2013 from the office of Australian federal Attorney General Nicola Roxon
Letter dated 22 March 2013 from the Australian Federal Police written on behalf of & in reply to correspondence to Australian federal Attorney General Mark Dreyfus QC MP
A letter dated 30 October 2013 from the South Australian Independent Commission Against Corruption [SA ICAC] in reply to my complaint lodged providing evidence of corruption of South Australian authorities. The letter misrepresents my complaint, information and documentation provided that has never been acknowledged. My complaint was rewritten by SA ICAC before they refused to investigate it. The complaint that I lodged was not the complaint that SA ICAC accepted. There has been what appears to be a threat of criminal prosecution for making available to others information concerning a complaint lodged with SA ICAC and documentation demonstrating Australian national corruption regarding events that have occurred in South Australia. SA ICAC Commissioner Bruce Lander QC has after implying I may be liable for criminal prosecution concerning information that I have provided to him has declined to provide further information concerning what may be his intentions. Letters from South Australia’s Independent Commission Agaianst Corruption dated 30 October 2013 – 6 February 2014 and 5 June 2014 [signed by Bruce lander] appear below :
SA ICAC response 30 Oct 2013
SA ICAC threat 6 Feb 2014
Letter dated 5 June 2014 from the South Australian Independent Commission Against Corruption [SA ICAC] that may be a threat of my criminal prosecution for making available to others information & documentation regarding Australian corruption. SA ICAC Commissioner Bruce Lander does not specifically say which information and documentation that I have provided to SA ICAC [& is unacknowledged] that if provided to others would be a criminal offence. I have provided the same information & SA ICAC’s corrupt response to others including Australia’s federal Attorneys General [past & present of both political parties] & others with ministerial responsibility for the authorities whom are corrupt. They do not respond.
Above – A letter dated 6 December 2013 from the New South Wales Independent Commission Against Corruption NSW ICAC – refusing to accept the evidence of fake archives of Australian newspapers published that are sold by the State Library of NSW as authentic newspaper archives. NSW ICAC refuses to allow my further communication with them. I have provided the evidence of news articles published in South Australia’s ‘The Advertiser’ newspaper [referring to SBSA’s “Off Balance Sheet” debt changing valuations [11 February 1991 page 6 still refers to news articles previously published] – those newspaper articles are some of the many that have been erased from the NSW State Library ‘archives’ of newspapers published.
The only existing reference to the Adelaide SA NCA bombing murder of police officer Geoffrey Bowen ever published in any United KIngdom newspaper – according to the records [fake archives] of British Libraries UK London Colindale. See the right hand side lower half of page news artcile [about eight sentences] headlined “Bomb kills detective in Adelaide” The date of the purported publishing 3 March 1994 is two years after Police Officer Geoffrey Bowen was killed on 2 March 1992. This British Libraries London ‘archived’ record was found in 2011 and was not in the records in 2004 when I first discovered the corruption of the newspaper reporting of the bankruptcy of the State Bank of SA.
