PRB Court Update August 2018

Hello to good people everywhere and big Love to all.

For those who are interested in my five matters now before several jurisdictions in several NSW Courts, I would like to share what I believe I am able to share without breaching my current suppression orders.

  1. In regards to the Equity Court Matter brought before the Court by The Secretary of Family and Community Services, and the interim Supression orders that were placed upon  Dr Andrew Katelaris (second defendant) and myself (first defendant) by Justice Rein on July 18th 2017, without the hearing of our defence at that time. These orders have finally been made by Justice Robb on Friday the 3rd of August 2018. I still have concerns as I believe my defence has not been adequately addressed but as the final permanent interim interlokutory orders now stand ( i’m pretty sure thats correct, hence the confusion!), both Andrew and I now face sequestration of all our assets and inprisonment up to and including life inprisonment if we contravene those orders. Unlike with Law, In a Court of Equity if we are found to be in Contempt of Court, the sentencing has no limit. Considering the criminal charges themselves only carry a maximum of two years inprisonment, I consider that this, in my understanding, usurps the will of Parliament. Consequently for this and many other good reasons I have now appealed this matter to The Supreme Court of Appeal, notwithstanding the near $4000  fee to do so which i am currently trying to waive or remit. I am thankful that Justice Robb has finally made a determination as I could immediately appeal the matter once an order was actually made.  I have written to his associate requesting a copy of these suppression orders suitable for release to the public as I feel the matter is of important public interest, but as yet have had no response. I have a sealed copy of the orders (they cost me $61 for my own orders against me), but I must confess I find the wording so ambiguous I am reluctant to do or share anything on social media as I can no longer determine what I can or cannot say in any capacity.  Further to this, as I have no representation, limited funds (music and donations for helping people) and not even the Court it appears at this time, will assist me with understanding these orders, I consider this a rather effective complete blanket ban on me doing or saying anything that is considered published or broadcast. The only thing I believe I can still do safely on social media is to sing, but even then I am not entirely sure, because as a bard we feel an obligation to both entertain, educate and to sing about things that are happening of significant importance both locally and globally. I absolutely and resolutely refuse to be forced to only play cover songs. That is, to only play songs by other people as my words might be a problem if they can in any way be linked with certain people and events. This is every creative artists worst nightmare, and what if I sing a song and they just think I’m singing about something that I’m not, then what ?
  2. In regards to the Criminal Suppression Charges and Section 105 Child Protection  Act Suppression Charges against Dr Andrew and myself where we have been charged separately for identical matters that have now finally been applied in Equity. I recently raised a Notice of Motion with several strong grounds that was dismissed by Magistrate Stone in the Local Court Newcastle on the 6th July 2018. I have since appealed his desicion with an order in the nature of certiorari and mandamus and this matter is listed for case management in The Supreme Court Sydney this Thursday. Despite the fact I have no delusions of the level and degree of corruption that now exists in our own system, I cannot possibly see any way I cannot win this matter, as the entire case in my opinion has more holes in it than a vegetable strainer!
  3. In regards to my now third Private Prosecution against a FACS Caseworker. I was again concerned as happened previously, that the matter would simply be closed down by the DPP at the request of The Crown Solicitor without even the opportunity of a Hearing, despite all the elements for the matter being present. I consider this ultimately perverting the course of justice and at the very least it brings the administration of Justice into disrepute in the eyes of the reasonable person properly informed. This matter has now also been Summoned to The Supreme Court Common Law Division and I am currently waiting for a listing date.
  4. In regards to my Statement of Claim Assault Battery Charge in the District Court PRB v The State of NSW,  this matter has been filed and listed for first mention in Newcastle District Court on Thursday 6th Sept.
  5. In regards to my NSW Civil and Administrative Tribunal matter concerning a significant child fostering corporation in NSW and the continued intimidation by a government dept that provides them with many of their children, this too is listed for first mention this week.

For those of you wondering about Dr Andrew Katelaris. He is currently enjoying his freedom and very supportive of my new “enforced Legal direct placement work experience training career”. He of course has all the same conditions applied to him as I do above in The Equity and Criminal Matters however, he also has further strict bail conditions that are, in my humble opinion, so draconian that he is unable to really work in any capacity. The good news is I guess it should be pretty easy to get the dole though, when the Government refuses your right to work! I am in a slightly better position as Court matters and preparation now  consume around only 40 to 60 hours per week but I can still talk and perform at an occassional unpublished event without the possibility of going to gaol. Andrews’s  bail conditions, outside of him not being able to do anything with cannabis, not even to mention it, effectively say (in my words), that he goes directly to Gaol if he so much as tells someone to eat an apple, that is, he has Court Orders preventing him from giving basic dietary advice of any kind. This is very challenging for a dietician and this being the case, I guess if he says “don’t eat at McDonalds” , thats it, he’s screwed ! I am also most concerned about the idea of a bbq gathering and connect at his place he suggested as we hardly see each other really, I may need to check with the Courts if its ok to ask him for a sausage? Unfortunately Andrews bail conditions in my understanding  are not just applied to publishing and broadcast, but everything he does. Perhaps he could apply for a bail variation application so he can  discuss diet at a bbq, but thats would cost about $5000.

In this interesting and compelling tale that no significant media anywhere reports in any capacity and no politicians will fearfully and pathetically even dare tread,  I find myself very comfortable and confidant in everything I am doing, and my fundamental reasons for doing it. I am thankful for the support of all good hearted people everywhere that know Truth, and I am especially thankful to Creator, as I have learnt much and continue to grow stronger in my spiritual conviction to Truth, Justice and Love, in situations that I believe would otherwise destroy most people,  and has for many, for generations, and still does and is.

The most challenging thing I find is simply being suppressed from expressing Love and regard for some specific people I know, but this also help me to truly understand, on a very very  deep level,the real struggles faced by many families that  have been deprived of those that they love.

In regards to the global movement away from any semblance of Democracy into all out Fascism I still remain hopeful we have a chance as a species. As an aside, if for any reason I do at some point in the foreseeable future, come to an unfortunate abrupt end. Do not ever believe I committed suicide or any other rubbish story purported through any media, it will undoubtedly be murder, have no delusions about that.

I am hopeful, that as I consider my life journey far far less significant than that of Martin Luther King Junior, Gandhi Ji, JFK or John Lennon, I  remain blissfully optimistic that I will not meet the same end.

Love to all, God Bless, stay strong, pray often and note below, that I have not lost my sense of humour, for then it Truly Is The End !!!

The Daily Mail – Full Retraction

Hello to good people everywhere,

I am happy to share that after my success with The Australian  Newspaper I would now like to take this opportunity to thank the Daily Mail Australia for removing their article from 11th August 2017 entitled “Revelations ‘Mayor of Martin Place’ Lanz Priestley is a member of anti-medicine CULT that claims ‘doctors poison children with vaccinations'”

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank them for their online apology

“Apology to Paul Robert Burton

Daily Mail Australia has been contacted by Mr Paul Robert Burton regarding an article concerning him published by us on 11 August 2017.

Mr Burton raised concerns that the article could have been taken by some readers to suggest that Mr Burton was a ‘cult’ figure, a danger to children and was complicit in an alternative health treatment that resulted in a woman’s death.

The article did not say such things. In fact, Daily Mail Australia accepts that Mr Burton has never been a cult figure, is not a danger to children and has never been complicit in any alternative health treatments that have resulted in death.

Despite Daily Mail Australia’s view of the article and Mr Burton, if anyone understood the article as suggesting the contrary, we apologise to Mr Burton for any harm or embarrassment caused.”

My matter with The Daily Mail has been settled out of court on mutually acceptable terms. Due to a confidentiality agreement I cannot discuss the terms but i am pleased we could come to an agreement.

Pastor Paul’s Court & Cannabis Update

Hello to good people everywhere and love to all. The following Court Update covers the main matters I am involved with in court and those related court matters concerning Dr Andrew Kateralis and others, as express facts i believe i can openly share as a matter of political free speech and as a matter of open public debate and open public interest.

Out of further respect, I have mentioned no names nor any evidence that in any way contravenes the current interim suppression orders placed upon us, nor my understanding of what is permissible to share in regards to matters in open court in our representative democracy, or as our constitution states under section 9 and 24, of our implied democracy.

Further to this, i am self represented in all my court matters, that is, I have no legal representation, and some of the charges against me are indictable, consequently I go to great lengths to be respectful of our judicial system and I also, as a spiritual responsibility to the Creator, go to great lengths to respect our fundamental Common Law Rights and the need for open public debate and transparency in matters that are in the greatest of public interest. I believe that if a matter of significant public interest is dealt with openly and honestly, that it reduces conflict and brings about real quantifiable change. I do not believe it is right to hide from Truth, nor do I ever wish any harm or suffering upon any being. The lessons of the last year have taught me more about the fundamental teachings of Yeshua Ben Joseph and all other great speakers of Truth, for this  I am forever thankful.   I forgive all, and I always pray for positive change and I strive to see that change occur through right action, I encourage all to do the same, this is our humanity.

1) On Friday 20th April,  I attended my first mention at Newcastle Local Court for a second Private Prosecution against a NSW FACS Caseworker under section 56 of the NSW Crimes Act 1900. The defendant nor any representation appeared, so I raised the matter of issuing a bench warrant for the FACS caseworkers arrest. His Honour Magistrate Price did not issue a bench warrant and has at this time adjourned the matter until May 25th while the Crown Solicitors determine if they have carriage of this matter or not. I was surprised that neither the defendant nor the Crown Solicitors representative appeared as this is my second attempt with a Private Prosecution and this second matter was filed in early February this year and approved by the Registrar in March.  The first Private Prosecution was closed by the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) primarily on the grounds that the name of the defendant on the documentation was not one of the caseworkers present when a child was forcibly removed whilst I was officiating with the child and the family many months back. This time I have the name correct as I have been able to  identify one of the caseworkers present, this was quite difficult because not one public officer identified themselves when the child was removed and the one name provided on the documentation, that was not a warrant, was neither of the FACS caseworkers present, according to the DPP’s determination, also not withstanding that no involved Government Department that I wrote to would inform me of the names of any public officers associated with this matter. I believe that the Crown Solicitors will most probably take carriage of this matter and that it will again be taken over by the DPP  who will again determine if the matter is allowed to proceed based on my Brief Of Evidence. Next mention for this matter is May 25th in Newcastle Local Court where either the Crown Solicitor, if they have carriage of the matter, or the FACS caseworker or their representation, will appear for the defendant.

2) In regards to the Equity Court Suppression Orders in the Supreme Court Sydney,  where I am the first defendant and Dr Andrew Katelaris is the second defendant. Currently in my understanding, interlocutory orders were placed upon Dr Andrew and I on the 18th July 2017 by Justice Rein, these orders still stand unchanged. There was a final hearing for the matter in late Nov early Dec 2017 but while Justice Robb was making a determination over Christmas , we were both criminally charged for the exact same matters that were before the Equity Court, a court of fairness and conscience. Consequently The Secretary of FACS is now seeking further interim orders in the Equity Court so that, in my understanding, Dr Andrew and are in a situation where we could have “permanent temporary suppression orders” upon us, further restricting the mention of matters pertaining to one child in the care of FACS in relation to The Closed Children’s Court of NSW. This matter is currently set down for another directions hearing sometime as yet undetermined in May 2018. I would like to be able to share the suppression orders and transcript from Justice Rein and Justice Robb but I will need to talk with Justice Robb on what I may release, as again, in my understanding, the suppression orders have some things suppressed within them, that is, the orders and transcript themselves are also, in part, suppressed, so i will have to make sure I have a very very clear understanding of what i can and cant share.

3) In regards to the criminal suppression charges currently in the Newcastle Local Court  where Dr Andrew and I are charged separately for the same matters as before the Equity Court. What I believe was particularly inappropriate,  was the use of the Child Abuse and Sex Crimes Dept to charge us, so i have responded accordingly. The next mention is Thursday the 26th of April (tomorrow) and I have raised a Notice Of Motion (NOM) to challenge the charges on a number of very significant grounds. As Dr Andrew is currently incarcerated and unrepresented in his matter I would imagine he will most probably appear by video link from Cessnock Correctional Facility. I saw Andrew last Saturday in Cessnock and he is well and in good spirits but obviously unhappy about his incarceration. This matter is listed for 9.30am this Thursday at Newcastle Local Court.

4) in regards to Dr Andrews original charges from May last year concerning the possession, cultivation and supply of cannabis oil and Andrews argument as a matter of medical necessity,  the hearing is currently set down for trial in the Sydney District Court, Downing Centre, beginning Nov 5th this year.

5) In regards to Dr Andrews new alleged cannabis oil and leaf supply charges and breach of bail. The next mention for this matter is in Wyong Local Court on May 23rd and unlike the media reports, the amounts are embarrassingly small and would in a normal situation, without bail, be nothing more than a very very small personal possession charge, but a bail breach non the less.

6) In regards to Dr Andrews current incarceration, wheels are in motion for him to file a bail application as soon as is possible but i am not aware of a date at this time. He has engaged a solicitor for this matter at this time.

7) In regards to BJ Futters alleged cannabis and its derivatives, cultivation and supply charges from the original Dec 1st 2016 charges. BJ is currently self represented and is arguing cannabis as food, medicine and medical necessity. His trial is currently listed for 24th til the 27th September in the Newcastle District Court.

Considering the current situation with Dr Andrew Katelaris, BJ Futter, Tony Bower, Jenny Hallam, and numerous other individuals nationally, currently in court or incarcerated for providing cannabis as a food and medicine. I am of the personal belief that any Political Parties wishing  to achieve any real significant change should first be calling for an AMNESTY for all these people to address this matter openly as a matter of grave public interest. The current Drug Misuse Act and Poisons and Therapeutics Act around cannabis, find us in a precarious situation in Australia where people are being wrongfully persecuted under the Wrong Act, clearly actions are determined in a large part by intent, if the intent of a person is to grow food or make medicine then I believe one should not be charged under the Drug Misuse Act. Interestingly, I was never a huge cannabis activist, fundamental human rights, God, Love, Truth and Justice are more my thing, but through a series of astounding events, i now find myself here. I pray for an end to this madness in which innocent people are incarcerated and dragged through courts, families are sometimes decimated, and many adults and children needlesly suffer, all because of a gross national lack of education about something as lethal as a “tomato plant” !!! Cannabis (Hemp) is well known internationally and throughout history as an extraordinary plant with extraordinary applications and far reaching beneficial uses.

In regards to all matters of great public interest, I pray for a government with a will and intent to do what the people elected them to do, and a judicial system that honours its very foundations of Truth, Justice and Fairness in our constitutionally bound representative democracy.

Love to all, “hold steady thy mast”  and God Bless
