Watching the Detective and the Judiciary in NSW

How does it all work? Better still how does it all pan out?

Mr Bob Debus
Attorney General

Dear Mr Debus,

I was approached by a person, S M, in November 2000 to solicit a loan from my investment company. I was running at the time. Mr M indicated to me that he would like to be a part of my company. I told him that he could pay the sum of $165,000 as deposit to obtain a floor of the MBF Building at 10 Bathurst Street, Sydney. He agreed on the basis of a 10% stake in the new company S Technology which would be worth a considerable amount.

Monies were paid via bank cheque and we proceeded with the set up of S Technology on a daily basis. After several weeks Mr M asked me a personal question, "Why did I change my name to S H from I H? I was taken back by this question, but I confided that a criminal record was attached to my previous name something I was not proud of. That record dated back some 19 years ago.

He then indicated to me that he could, for a fee of $5000 have my so called record erased by a police officer named Charles Poniris of the Fraud Squad.

I was reluctant to do this but after much prompting by Mr M I consented.

He actually rang Mr Poniris from his mobile in my office and they had a conversation. He then handed me the phone and I spoke to Mr Poniris. Mr Poniris informed me to give Mr M the money and it would be fixed within 3 (three) days.

He informed me that I could check it through CRA. I was to go ahead with the deal and monies were paid.

The very same day Mr M asked me if he could borrow USD $5Million unsecured. I was in a position to arrange a loan like this and told him he needed to produce USD$110,000 to insure the loan with an underwriter of Loyds of London. This was agreed upon and a contract was executed with MR M's signature. As events turned out Mr M defaulted on the above-mentioned contract. The USD$110,000 was never paid by Mr M.

Approximately three to four days after Mr M entered into the contract. I made enquires through CRA to ascertain Mr Poniris's reliability regarding my arrangement with him. To my surprise I discovered the complete opposite had taken place. The CRA had linked my two names. This at the time cause me great concern as it would certainly affect my current business operations.

Mr M came to my office a short time later and I asked him to leave indicating I no longer wished to have any dealings with him or Poniris.

A week later I received a letter from solicitors acting on Mr M's behalf demanding the USD$5Million loan amount. They indicated that the $165,000 was for the contract, but I pointed out it was for a 10% stake in S Technology. I did not care for the man and told him to return the above mentioned loan contract and I would give him the $165,000.

On 11th may 2001 at around 11am in the car park of the MBF Building whilst parking my car I was arrested by 12 heavily armed police in riot gear with the arresting officer being Mr Poniris. I was informed they had a search warrant to search my office, S Technology. They did this and found contracts. I was subsequently charged with Obtaining Money by Deception in regard to Mr M's contract.

It is notable that not any of these defaulters had made any complaints either civilly or criminally against me at this time.

I was granted bail of $100,000 but spent 70 days in custody which resulted in me being in default of certain contracts. I found this to be prejudicial as I would not have defaulted in my contracts had I been able to continue my business. Poniris convinced 3 people who were defaulters to make statements against me and I was subsequently charged for them.

After 70 days imprisoned (on remand) and numerous court dates whilst on release on bail I eventually came before the District Court for trial. On the day of the trial, the prosecutor, Mr Geoff Denman offered my legal team a deal. This being, if I was to plead guilty to two of the five charges against me and had the remaining three to be taken into consideration, and a no bill on the charge involving M.

I was informed that if I agreed to this I would receive a Non Custodial Sentence. The presiding judge (Justice Blanch), on the 17th March, 2003 agreed to this and adjourned the matter for 2 months.

My day of sentencing came and to my astonishment a different judge by the name of Justice Puckeridge was sitting and immediately informed me that I was to be going to jail today. How can this be? He did not want to hear about compensating any alleged victims and also did not take into account any of the circumstances I was in. In fact I found him to be abusive and in particular discriminating using my former nationality (Iraq) in his sentencing remarks even though I have been in Australia for 33 years (and a citizen for some 30 of those years).

In conclusion I feel that the course of Justice has been prevented and that a campaign of denigration of character, assault upon my integrity and abuse of my legal/human rights has taken place. At no time did I try to deceive any person out of any money. As stated in all the loan contracts. For any reason if the loan was not to be approved the return of the up front fee would be refunded in full on first demand. Not any demands for refund of monies were in place at the time of my arrest nor was this mentioned in any of the court appearances I had. I do however admit to trying to have my previous record removed, and I was foolish to listen to Mr M and Mr Poniris but no-one is perfect.

THE DOG: What does it take to have a matter investigated properly in NSW? A Miracle and a torch!


Police WarLords set to take over Sydney again
Police warlords are set to take over Sydney's suburbs because police are not being supervised properly.

Jailed man's conviction to be reviewed
The New South Wales Court of Criminal Appeal will today review the conviction of a man, after claims in the Police Integrity Commission (PIC) last year that police planted weapons and faked suspects' confessions.

Rookies step up to ranks of Keystone-Cops?
Officers untrained in major criminal investigation are being posted to the state's elite body of detectives.

The inaugural Australian Police Summit
The inaugural Australian Police Summit (APS) will take place 18-19 June 2003 at the Australian Technology Park, Sydney. APS is Australia's only dedicated event focusing on all aspects of Law Enforcement and Policing.

NSW Police! Soothsayers or slayers? Strategy part 3 Permit denial
Part three: Refuse to grant a permit for another planned march because they manipulated the populist view. How? By exploiting your argument and eroding the public's confidence in peaceful demonstrations and by using the media to tell their lies, then using that as a weapon against peace.

Police violence fractures Peace movements?
The resolution also criticised New South Wales Assistant Police Commissioner Dick Adams for creating a threatening environment by mobilising excessive force for the protest.

No confidence in 'Force' when service is out the door
How are shopkeepers and service staff going to feel today knowing police are vulnerable to be attacked while serving customers at the counter of a police station?

Every dog has his day: Brammer resigns
The Police Integrity Commission found that Brammer, along with other senior police, had at times displayed a lack of support for the former police reform body, the Crime Management Support Unit.

MPs told of police corruption
Corruption and mismanagement are still entrenched in the NSW Police, and problems at the highest levels are "whitewashed", according to evidence given yesterday to a federal parliamentary committee.

Black Knight Moroney to give evidence?
Accusations about former high-ranking NSW policewoman Lola Scott's alleged failure to act against paedophiles have dominated a federal crime inquiry hearing in Sydney.

The NSW Police Force
The NSW Police Force has stopped production on its new movie Viking. Viking, showing in NSW Parliament House and in the suburbs of Sydney recently.

Crime victim group wants say in money allocation
A spokesperson from Justice Action Mr Brett Collins said, "Victims should be properly compensated regardless of the source and that is currently the law. The law says you don't need to find even the offender to get compensation. This is an attempt by the opposition to create a law and order issue-involving victims when there is in fact no issue!

Abolition of 800 year old double jeopardy law a crime
The 800-year-old rule prevents a person who's acquitted of a criminal charge from ever being re-tried for that offense.

When real safety is jeopardised in NSW
Perception of crime is still a problem in NSW, with a new Productivity Commission report showing the state's citizens feel less safe than most of their counterparts.

Call to Bronwyn Bishop's Federal Crime Inquiry
I call on Bronwyn Bishop to allow me to produce first evidence about police corruption and to be able to attend Parliament House Sydney without fear of conviction.

Australia: politicians should watch police
In Sydney yesterday the Opposition police spokesman, Andrew Tink, urged Federal Labor MPs to allow the public hearing of the claims, which include that senior police, the PIC and the Ombudsman's office were failing to investigate legitimate complaints of misconduct, including corruption in the police promotion system.

The community questions ICAC's slagging and fobbing you off?
The ICAC, Commissions, Ombudsman, Police Integrity Commission (PIC), and numerous Tribunals etc, are all arms of government set up as an insurance police for the government's 3 or 4 year election terms. In short they'll be out of office by the time you may be lucky enough to have your matter heard.

Who is bad?
Super Rat? M5? M11? K8? N2? So I trust that some people who, with the photos and guns guessed that a jury would quickly establish a case against a profiled person whom, you just had a picture and a history of. Common knowledge? The government knew their victims would take the blame. Not just chess in court, 'moving around the pieces', but 'putting false evidence, or not enough evidence before the jury."

2,500 crooked detectives? Or a corrupt Government?
Evan Whitton: Either two things occurred. If you said you didn't join the police force to extort money from working girls, your papers were marked 'not suitable for plain clothes' and you were sent back to uniform.

How to become corruption resistant in NSW
Don't trust those who cannot prove themselves with the little amounts of trust you give them. Just because they have a letter of perceived trust doesn't mean they can be trusted.

This is not how you eat 'antisocial behaviour'
Process corruption, perjury, planting of evidence, verbals, fabricated confessions, denial of suspects rights, a solicitor to induce confessions, tampering with electronic recording equipment, framing. Generally green lighting crime, and I say Murder, including the kids who overdosed on heroin. No doubt.

Black Knight - Long way to go home
In line with the current climate of police corruption and the demise of the reform unit set up by Wood, these facts ought to have been a good reason to leave Moroney out of the package as Commissioner.

Bob down and sniff my arse
These are serious invasions of privacy and draconian laws? Where are our democratic soldiers, the lawyers and the barristers who need to take on the government in the courts? Are they plastic? Or to busy feathering their nests? Or have they been cleverly purchased by this black government. Drug test police and politicians, and have the tests independently accessed.

Come in spinner? Or Come in sinner?
"You don't have, in my view very vigilant processes. I suppose it's akin to the problem of corruption within the police," he told the ABC radio. " People say there's corruption with the police (but) do you get the police to investigate problems within their own ranks?

I am disturbed by Governments 'actions' in relation to shuffling the police service. Clive Small seconded into Parliament like a cocky in a perch. A breach of the fundamental Separation of Powers Doctrine does not in my view allow the thought of intervening, planning, or shuffling to stack the deck of our police service. The one that suppose to be autonomous according to Lord Denning. Where the Parliamentary Secretary can ask the commissioner of police to 'report' then sack him if he is not satisfied with such report.

Australia's Political Underworld...& their enforcers
The promotion of law and order means money to big business. Profits from insurance, security fixtures, patrol services and the like can only continue to grow if the perceived threat of uncontrollable crime wave escalates. In the past few months there have been many examples of the true nature of our blood thirsty politicians and their sinister attempts to spoon-feed a not so gullible public with their repetitious rhetoric.

Who is telling the truth? Well I guess Dr. Ed. Chadbourne or Mr. Peter Ryan may have the answer to that. Dr. Chadbourne sacked by Peter Ryan and more specifically in my view because he elected deputy commissioners Dave Madden and Andrew Scipione as the best men in the service in relation to his qualifications to make a recommendation in his capacity as human resources.That is if you believe that a Dr. can be corrupted.

What is happening between the Police Service and politics is quite extraordinary at the moment. If stand over tactics don't work tell half the truth honestly and follow the example of sheep. Another word for it is sleaze, yeah. Another word for it is workplace harassment. Another word for it is bribing a Police Officer. Another word for it is misleading Parliament.

Tele Tales
Most people I know don't buy the Daily Telegraph. Why? Because of the lies and propaganda purported by them.

Lord Denning
Interesting how a member of the Police Board Mr. Tim Priest would hold grave fears for his safety from dangerous senior police but fails to name them or have them sacked. Rather Priest resigns as if he had no powers. Could that mean what he was saying is that the Governments are also corrupt?

Clive Small is Bob Carr's choice for the new Police Commissioner. It could only be the case considering his, Small's special appointment into Parliament House. Small who suffers from the little person syndrome is the ideal bend over boy who gets shuffled through his corrupt actions. Rolling the legal system for him after the fact, just like his predecessor Roger the dodger Rogerson.

Black Nexus
The Separation of Powers Doctrine is nowcontaminated witharangeofcolours, now leaving us with a black shirt on a once blue bridge that crossed that thin blue line. The 'Amery and Woodham show'.

Same boat
The Premier, Bob Carr, relies on a militia. A gang of bikies and our Police Service, to show all of us he is no murderer. He should be taken to the task along with his partners in crime like Clive Small to account for those people who like my self have been maliciously assaulted and who have complained, without any service and those who cannot speak for themselves who were murdered, like Terry Falconer. Terry murdered in custody.

Good Cop
Why have our democratic institutions broken down? It's not just the criminal justice system. The Anti-Corruption Network exposes the same issues. A group of white-collar workers who say they have suffered as follows:

I refer to the Daily Telegraph article 22 March 2002 under the heading Priest quits advisory job.

Partners in crime - history!
Roger Rogerson, the old hero, who never faced a result in the Warren Lanfranchi, or Sally-Anne Huckstepp murders, was let off in my opinion when the New South Wales Government rolled the legal system (deciding what evidence to give the police prosecutor) to have the jury believe the illusion they (the Government wanted to create).
