Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

Reveal basis for charges - Judge Wainwright orders corrupt prosecutor to comply with the law:

Judge Carrie Wainwright acquitted me of all the remaining corruptly laid charges in the Masterton Court and ordered corrupt Police prosecutor Garry Wilson - who cheated on his wife and Court registry officer Liz Harpleton's husband, prior to the pair of them shacking up together and perverting the course of justice on a regular basis in a blatant conflict of interest - to provide the evidence of the gross corruption in the form of the Police Disclosure a defendant is entitled to receive upon being charged.  Wilson had been corruptly refusing to provide the Disclosure and lying about whether or not he had for over a year, because Wilson knew full well that the charges had been corruptly laid.

Furthermore, I was ACQUITTED of perverting the course of justice - and escaping from custody and every other corruptly laid charge that wasn't withdrawn, because the Crown suddenly decided to offer no evidence after I filed an application for a judicial inquiry which was accepted by the High Court!

Wilson continued to attempt to pervert the course of justice by arguing against the Judge's directions and attempting to convince the Judge that if he withdrew the charge he somehow didn't have to provide any Disclosure, until the Judge lost patience with his blatant lies and ORDERED him to provide it.

I am most grateful for the assistance of one of the best lawyers there is, Mr Frank Minehan.  Mr Minehan continues to faithfully provide professional services of the highest standard, and I cannot recommend him highly enough.


'Reveal basis for charges' - Judge has to force prosecutor to provide disclosure - over 12 months after charge is laid:

Following the sudden and completely irrational announcement of Clown Prosecutors that they intended to offer no evidence against me regarding the corruptly laid charge of perverting the course of justice due that was to be heard in the Wellington Court recently, the remaining eight charges were thrown out in the Masterton Court today.  The news report is not entirely accurate, but near enough for readers to get the general idea - this post will be updated as soon resources allow.

International Day of the Disappeared 2011, August 31:

Today is the International Day of the Disappeared - where is the Panchen Lama of Tibet?  Gedhun Choekyi Nyima, was kidnapped by the Chinese authorities at the age of six (!!), shortly after he was recognised as Panchen Lama by H.H. the Dalai Lama.  After the real Panchen Lama disappeared, the Chinese appointed their own Panchen Lama, a puppet of the government.

This is as good a spot as any to remember this letter to the Judicial Complaints Commissioner about Judge Adrienne Winklemann, and about freedom of speech and freedom of information, from Vince Seimer, who, like me, has "Disappeared" from time to time in the course of seeking justice and truth, the original, and the rest of the story, can be found at kiwisfirst.com, at least we reappeared eventually.  Spare a thought today for those who've disappeared, and write to the Chinese embassy and ask them where is the Panchen Lama?  Many thanks to all who rang and wrote asking "Where is Kate Raue?" when I disappeared, if we don't speak up for others, who's going to speak up for us?

No Disclosure, Altered Documents from Police Prosecutor & Masterton Court Again:

It's outrageous that, having been robbed of justice in the matter of the false and corrupt accusation of Perverting the Course of Justice, now the Masterton police prosecutor can continue to get four adjournments in the Court since the Crown memorandum was filed, for charges like this!  Time to protest about how our taxes are being squandered like this while the real problems are mismanaged and ignored.  The circus continues in the Masterton court on Monday 29th August, watch this space.

Stonehenge Aotearoa - Royal Society involved in massive con:





"Stonehenge Aotearoa" - funded by the Royal Society and the subject of bitter dispute and serious allegations of fraud and malfeasance - exactly like the kind that went on at the former Carterton Community Centre:

"Original commentary from Mark Knowles on TPAS Facebook page, also recorded at this link.
Mr Hall’s version of the truth…

As members of a society, you should be very concerned when a member like Mr Hall starts shouting about being in the right all the time, pointing blame at others, but never admitting fault, or his own wrong doing.

The High Court found Mr Hall to have a material and going conflict of interest. If elected President, it shall be difficult if not impossible for Mr Hall to be loyal to the society when he has company using society assets to make money and at the same time is the sole the land owner on which those assets stand. The Judge also agreed with the society and its membership with the action it took.

In his affidavit, Mr Hall denied a conflict of interest and continues to do; making no mention if it in his mass email. His resolution to this conflict – Strip the society of charitable status, sell or give the clubrooms to Starlore (his company), without consulting the greater membership. He has already attempted that later but was turned down by present council. It is also a breach of the constitution. Something he quotes when it suites his own purpose.

For the society, losing charitable status will affect future funding. The Society will not be able to apply for grants, society assets will decline.

Mr Hall’s loyalty is to himself and Starlore shareholders who have given him substantial amounts of money to develop Stonehenge Aotearoa and Starlore LTD. As shareholders their interest is in making a return on their investment and they will do this using the society assets, at the society’s expense.
This has been Mr Hall’s plan for a very long time, and now that he’s not at council meetings and able to influence its direction, he is making a desperate grab for power, all whiles promoting himself as some great saviour.

As a society My Hall has got you into a rather big mess to the tune of $100,000 over the past 7 years. With his partner Kay Leather, there was little stopping them:

• The loss of the Matariki Telescope. Rumsey’s do trust Mr Hall because he lied about the Matariki Trust

• Spending Society funds by Kay Leather on the visitor Centre without society/council approval. Computers Fridges etc

• Accepting personal loans to the society during Mr Hall Presidency. (money and spending from Kay Leather and loan from Mr Dobson)

• $6,000 of society money spent by Richard and Lesley Hall on obsolete telescope equipment without society/council approval (Nankivell Observatory)

• $40,000 on a visitor centre. Not put to the membership to vote on and no principle paid in 7 years – just interest. Whilst Richard paid himself with visitor fees

• Repaying the visitor centre loan at 12% $30,000 – money now lost.

• $8,000~$13,000 per year operation losses running Stonehenge Aotearoa, put against the Society.

• Buildings rotting whilst Mr Hall paid himself and others with proceeds from Stonehenge

• Observatory equipment degrading and not being looked after, as there was no funds available to repair them

Legal Fees for Phoenix having to represent itself at the High Court in the Hall’s Matrimonial Property dispute. (at Mr Halls request)

Amounts based on a review of TPAS books 2005-present

Mr Hall believes Stonehenge Aotearoa could be a $500,000+ per annum business and has been blurring the line between charity and business for years. ($500k quoted from email, Mr Hall to council and some society members May 2010)

$500,000 per annum would require a year round stream of 650 people per week, paying $15 per guided tour. Let alone $5 for unguided tours. On current opening hours that requires nearly 45 people per hour going through the gate.

• Do you really think this is possible? It hasn’t happened in nearly 7 years… why will it happen now with Starlore?


Is Phoenix an astronomy club, Charity or Mr Hall’s Business venture?

• Do you really think you’ll be able to access the clubrooms with 45 people per hour going through it?

• You currently don’t have access to your clubrooms during the day because Mr Hall insists that Starlore has first dibs for Starlore operations.

• Tours are now run via the clubrooms (in the front door, then out through at back) and Mr Hall wants Starlore to have exclusive clubroom use for All school holidays and public holidays. (This happened without asking the present Council)
Is this what you want?

Ask yourself:
• Why is a business using incorporated Society assets for financial gain?
• Why has a charity (Phoenix) been picking up the losses for Stonehenge?
• Why have the accounts never been audited or had a forensic account review them for transparency; since Stonehenge operation began?
• Why does the society use Mr Hall’s personal accountant?
• Where are the trusts to protect the society and its assets? Mr Hall talked about and promised trusts during his 10 year Presidency? Where are they?
• Why is Mr Hall insisting that he be a permanent Trustee on the trusts? (Matariki Telescope Trust Deed, Firebird business plan presented to council July 2010)
• Where is the trust for Stonehenge Aotearoa, as per the agreement between Phoenix and the Royal Society for its $50,000 grant?
• Where is the business plan to make money out of Stonehenge Aotearoa?
• Why have society workshops and education programmes been stopped from using the clubrooms during the day?
• How is it that Mr Hall was President for 10 years, took part in council meetings up to March 2011 yet denies any fault for the societies current position?
• How is it possible that the society is in such a big mess, yet Kay Leather (Mr Hall’s Partner) had been Treasurer until April 2011?
• Why do other astronomers throughout refer to Richard Hall as “Tricky Dickie”
• Why do you vote for President, yet 3 other people end up on council?
The society and its constitution was set-up to serve Mr Hall and to make it difficult for anyone to challenge him. This is why he deflects questions of accountability and blames others for the society’s current problems.
Society Council Meetings
• Mr Hall attended and had input into every meeting, influencing council decisions at all council meetings for the past 3 years ending April 2011, his last attendance was when Kay Leather was asked to stand down due to conflict of interest, being society Treasurer of Phoenix and Director of Starlore.
• In 2010 Mr Hall insisted that Lesley Hall, Bernard Watt, Bernard’s Father and two women (signed up by Lesley Hall just prior to the AGM) be kicked out the Society.
• In May 2011 Mr Hall and Kay Leather signed up people to vote at the AGM in the same manner as Lesley Hall did in 2010.
Why then, is the constitution not being applied in the same manner to the likes of Helen Winterbottom and the others Mr Hall and Kay Leather signed up? Maybe they are more tolerant and open minded? Maybe they don’t have ANY to gain financially from the society?
Head of Agreement – Starlore and Phoenix.
• Mr Hall insisted the Heads of Agreement between Starlore and Phoenix be kept secret from the membership. Why? Commercially sensitive? No. Because he did not want to disclose his intention to the membership whilst using charitable society assets to profit from.
• Mr Hall also requested the society to hand ownership of the clubrooms to Starlore in the HOA, without consulting the membership, as per the constitution
• Mr Hall has not been able to keep to the original agreement and continues to demand more access and leeway to do whatever he wants, when he wants with Society Assets to run Starlore (his business)
Constitution
• Elections -Vote for President and 4 of the 7 council members get elected
• Main Goal – Research observatory and education. So why is Mr Hall running a business?
• Obtain and maintain charitable status. So why is Mr Hall planning to quickly and decisively REMOVE charitable status if he becomes president?
• Why are there no conflict of interest clauses in the constitution?
• Why has Mr Hall proposed a team of 7, the entire council?
Because it was written by Mr Hall, for Mr Hall to maintain control. That’s not democratic and the upcoming election is about Money and Control over the Society.
Be warned Phoenix members, vote Mr Hall in as President and Phoenix morph into society that serves Mr Halls money making plans, applying the constitution as he sees fit.
Fact is, Mr Hall is an unassuming man, seemingly trustworthily and honest. The truth of the matter, he’s just like Bernard Madoff, who ripped off millions of dollars and is not to be trusted.

Hotel Rangipapa - Lunatics in Charge of the Asylum:

Patient Raue resisted taking her medication.  Dr Sally knew what to do about that.

After having nothing to do with the police for most of my life prior to coming to the Wairarapa, I have been subjected to an orchestrated campaign of malicious and vexatious litigation from the local police, who have charged me with quite a number of things in the last seven years or so and consistently refused to take complaints and refused to investigate complaints made by several lawyers also, including the complaints from Ken Daniels and Michael Appleby.

Things took a far more sinister turn recently when two local Police Sergeants sent each other emails discussing how 
"something needs to be looked at regarding Kate Raue's blog and the statements she's making on it about our staff."  
They and their colleagues and others then conspired to pervert the course of justice by falsely charging me with offences I didn't commit - which is part of a pattern of malicious and vexatious prosecutions against me since I had the misfortune to move to the Wairarapa, and these falsely laid charges were then used to incarcerate me in a mental asylum for months, accused of having "Delusional Disorder" - despite many reports from top psychiatrists directly contradicting this.

The PCA and the IPCA refuse to investigate or even acknowledge the serious complaints made by me and several lawyers.  Their responses to correspondence are nothing short of an orchestrated litany of lies.


These matters are greatly in the public interest because they involve our former Carterton Community Centre, which was taken over illegally and closed down to cover up the fraud and serious misfeasance that occured there.  Ex MP Georgina Beyer was involved with the Centre, and was Patron of it at the same time as she was a Member of Parliament and wrote several letters regarding the fraud and misfeasance at the Centre, these letters resulted in her resignation from parliament because they contained untruths.

The previous post notes how barely qualified "forensic registrar" Brenda Sally Rimkeit, encouraged by corrupt and incompetent amicus curiae and ex police officer Bryan Yeoman, wrote a certificate for the Court at Wellington on 8th March stating that I should be detained in a secure mental asylum in order to have two reports completed, to address the question of whether I was fit to stand trial.  Both of them
knew full well that this was not necessary, because the only reason I had not attended two previous appointments was because they had been made in Porirua and not Masterton, like the one that I had attended, and WINZ unlawfully refused to assist when I applied for a recoverable advance for travel costs to the appointment which had been made at Porirua 
unnecessarily, by Rimkeit herself.

Judge Barry had agreed with me only a week or so previously that the appointments should have been made in Masterton and if they had been I would have attended.  This post takes a closer look at the various psychiatric reports etc, and how Rimkeit and some of her colleagues have hijacked the justice system and led to a serious miscarriage of justice.  At this point I'd like to note that the last report Rimkeit wrote announced that she would no longer be practicing as a forensic psychiatrist, the evidence on this site will show you why that is, and why Rimkeit should be charged with Perverting the Course of Justice, making false declarations, intentionally submitting false and misleading documents to the Court, etc.  Here is her "professional opinion":

"It is my opinion (and that of forensic psychiatrist Dr Jacqueline Short, currently my acting supervisor) that Ms Raue is unfit to stand trial.  She currently has a mental impairment which is Delusional Disorder.  Ms Raue has stated on a number of occasions during this assessment period that she feels capable of representing and defending herself against the current charges.  She has suggested that her main line of defence is that the charges are the result of corrupt acts by certain parties and that she will name these parties in Court.  My concern is that if she proceeds to represent herself at Court she may, through her delusional belief system, falsely accuse certain parties of wrongdoing." 
(- 22 March 2011, Brenda Sally Rimkeit)

This is outrageous!  Citizens should be able to report police incompetence and corruption without being locked in a mental asylum and labelled delusional.  Read the true story of how Brenda Sally Rimkeit and a couple of her colleagues perverted the course of justice and stopped a jury trial proceeding in order to conceal police incompetence and corruption.


Dr Hiran Thabrew signed the papers committing me to Rangipapa without even examining me. He knew perfectly well that there was nothing wrong with me, but he went along with the corrupt and sadistic process for his own reasons. 

Ironically, tragically, Dr Thabrew's wife had committed suicide not long before he corruptly and deliberately signed my life away

Dr Thabrew wouldn't know mental illness if he fell over it.


Brenda Sally Rimkeit ceased practising forensic psychiatry at the same time I was acquitted of all charges and was last heard of practising as a "financial advisor" - at the slyly named "MADDIE Investments" - I wouldn't buy a used car from her and neither would anyone in their right mind!  - Just check out the company details - nobody would invest money with this woman if they ever wanted to see the money again.





Here's what Dr Nick Judson said only two or three days before the Crown decided to offer no evidence:   
"Ms Raue presented as pleasant, polite, well groomed and looked physically quite healthy and relaxed."  "Her manner was pleasant and quite relaxed throughout the interview and she showed no evidence of any pressure in her thinking. Her speech, while a little speeded at times, was not noticeably pressured and her thought processes were logical and rational throughout the period of the interview.  We spent some time discussing the issues of the court, the charges and her intended defence.  She was able to explain clearly and rationally the way in which she intends to defend herself against the charge and remained focused on this throughout, without introducing any extraneous or irrelevant material and without displaying any paranoid thought processes in relation to the charges."  "Her understanding of the legal issues is very good and she has the ability to formulate and enter a plea and to follow all the matters pertinent to the court."  "Overall my impression is that she will be able to interact successfully with the court for the purpose of conducting her defence.  In my opinion she is fit to stand trial."  

Another psychiatrist, Dr Justin Barry-Walsh wrote:  
Her account included a number of persecutory ideas.  However on balance considering her ideas and reviewing the other materials, I do not think Ms Raue has a mental illness, particularly I do not believe that she has a psychotic illness characterised by the development of persecutory delusions."  He also says "I would further observe the litigious quality to her presentation means that she has an exaggerated intellectual understanding of court process and would be well capable of following legal process and both entering a plea and instructing a lawyer."   These reports make an utter mockery of the Crown memorandum, which was written two days after the report saying:  "Ms Raue presented as pleasant, polite, well groomed and looked physically quite healthy and relaxed."  "Her manner was pleasant and quite relaxed throughout the interview and she showed no evidence of any pressure in her thinking. Her speech, while a little speeded at times, was not noticeably pressured and her thought processes were logical and rational throughout the period of the interview.  We spent some time discussing the issues of the court, the charges and her intended defence.  She was able to explain clearly and rationally the way in which she intends to defend herself against the charge and remained focused on this throughout, without introducing any extraneous or irrelevant material and without displaying any paranoid thought processes in relation to the charges."  "Her understanding of the legal issues is very good and she has the ability to formulate and enter a plea and to follow all the matters pertinent to the court."  "Overall my impression is that she will be able to interact successfully with the court for the purpose of conducting her defence.  In my opinion she is fit to stand trial."   
They had no evidence to offer in the first place.  The Prosecutors and police officers should be charged with contempt of Court, so should Drs Sally Rimkeit, Jacqueline Short, Safarti and others.

The Maori Jesus 

I saw the Maori Jesus

Walking on Wellington Harbour.

He wore blue dungarees.
His beard and hair were long.
His breath smelt of mussels and paraoa.
When he smiled it looked like the dawn.
When he broke wind the little fishes trembled.
When he frowned the ground shook.
When he laughed everybody got drunk. 

The Maori Jesus came on shore.

And picked out his twelve disciples.

One cleaned toilets in the Railway Station;
His hands were scrubbed red to get the shit out of the pores.
One was a call girl who turned it up for nothing.
One was a housewife who’d forgotten the Pill
And stuck her TV set in the rubbish can.
One was a little office clerk
Who’d tried to set fire to the Government Buildings.
Yes, and there were several others; 

One was a sad old quean;

One was an alcoholic priest

Going slowly mad in a respectable parish.
The Maori Jesus said, ‘Man,
From now on the sun will shine.’ 

He did no miracles;

He played the guitar sitting on the ground.

The first day he was arrested
for having no lawful means of support. 

The second day he was beaten up by the cops

For telling a dee his house was not in order.

The third day he was charged with being a Maori
And given a month in Mount Crawford.
The fourth day he was sent to Porirua
For telling a screw the sun would stop rising. 

The fifth day lasted seven years

While he worked in the asylum laundry

Never out of the steam.
The sixth day he told the head doctor,
‘I am the Light in the Void;
I am who I am.’ 

The seventh day he was lobotomized;

The brain of God was cut in half.

On the eighth day the sun did not rise. 

It didn’t rise the day after.

God was neither alive nor dead.

The darkness of the Void,
Mountainous, mile-deep, civilized darkness
Sat on the earth from then till now.
               James K Baxter.
