"We have maintained a silence closely resembling stupidity" - Neil Roberts

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.

Julian Batchelor's creative accounting:

On his websites Mr Julian Batchelor states that he plans to develop three blocks of land in the Bay of Islands, at Rawhiti.

On his websites Julian states that the land is owned by a trust.

In an email to the Far North District Council dated 19 October 2015 he claims he's the Director of "a charity":

Here he proclaims that he is the director of "a Christian Charitable Trust":

 Mr Batchelor is a real estate agent, a property developer, and he is the director and shareholder in a number of limited liability companies, including Grace Alone Oke Bay Holdings Limited.  He certainly knows the difference between a trust and a limited liability company, and it appears that he may have recorded false details on his application to the Far North District Council or on his website claiming that the properties are owned by a trust or a charity, because Mr Batchelor has recorded that the property is in fact owned by a limited liability company of which he is the sole Director and shareholder, as can be verified at the Companies Office website - Mr Batchelor appears to be committing fraud.

It's clear by looking at Mr Batchelor's own websites that this little cult of his is aimed at generating a large income which is solely controlled by him.
An example of the money generating propaganda that fills Mr Batchelor's websites - he claims it's all "a charity".
It seems that even other Christians can't stand Mr Batchelor and don't think much of his hard sell approach either.  His claims (and those of his sycophantic disciples) are outlandish - "The video was released recently and went viral in New Zealanad when a radio announcer gave the website address and the server crashed under the huge demand of kiwis trying to watch it."  Yeah, right.  If that were true, there would be evidence of it on search engines, there isn't.  The only evidence of a radio announcer taking any interest in Julian Batchelor is the interview between Dale Husband of Irirangi Waatea and spokesperson for te Komiti o te Kaitiaki o Opourua, Katherine Raue.

I wouldn't trust this man as far as I could push him!
Further information recently disclosed documents the progress of these matters well, showing that despite repeated concerns from the hapu Resource Management Unit and te Komiti o Kaitiaki o Opourua and many of the tangata whenua Julian Batchelor has deliberately and repeatedly broken the law and shown nothing for utter contempt for both the law and the tangata whenua - he has stolen gravel from the side of the road using a hired digger and truck and taken it up to use on his property instead of buying his own gravel, he's dumped soil and other rubbish directly onto the road, the reserve, and anywhere else he feels like dumping it, which has caused massive pollution to the sea - he seems to think he's a law unto himself as well as God's chosen messenger.

Photographs recently provided with the two Official Information Act files linked to above are at this link.

Peter de Graaf of the Northern Advocate recently reported on these matters and we are awaiting developments currently, his report is at this link.  The comments below the report reveal an alarming level of ignorant racism, but provide a good opportunity for tangata whenua to have their say about these matters.

There is another interview with the komiti spokesperson by Dale Husband of Irirangi Waatea at this link.
