Supreme Court Judgement 8th March

To good people everywhere.

On Friday the matter concerning my Summons Judicial Review of the criminal charges for allegedly saying a child’s real name, using his image and releasing information suppressed in the children’s court proceedings in May 2017 for four posts in July 2017 that were published  on my personal Facebook timeline. The request for review of this matter was dismissed on Friday and each party awarded to pay its own costs. 

In Regards to Grounds 1 and 2

That the Office of The Director of Public Prosecutions(DPP) withheld evidence essential to my defence,  I effectively won as they finally provided the information they withheld from me for over 10 months,  two weeks before the Supreme Court hearing, without giving a reason. 

In Regards to Grounds 3

Her Honour ruled against ground 3 abuse of process

In Regards to Ground 4 

Concerning three charges where I argue that I cannot ever possibly be convicted. Her Honour has ruled that, in agreeance with the Newcastle Local Court Magistrate, that it is an argument for my defence, so she has dismissed it from being decided in the Supreme Court.  

I can of course Appeal these decisions but as I now finally have the medical information I was charged with releasing,  I can after nearly 15 months of asking for the evidence, now determine if I have actually done what I have been charged with doing? That is, I am now able to see the evidence that I have allegedly released. Notwithstanding that the information that was, and still is suppressed,  was released and published by thousands of other people long before me being charged. Channel Seven even today are in breach of section 105 as are thousands of other people including Family and Community Services themselves so in my view the hypocrisy beggars belief. 

The Judgement is available here on Caselaw for those who wish to read it.

Court of Appeal Judgement 6th March 2019

To good people everywhere. My application seeking Leave to Appeal the Equity Matter involving me as first defendant and Dr Andrew Katelaris as second defendant was dismissed by the Court of Appeal yesterday and costs were ordered against me. 

The Judgement in my view raises some very interesting questions especially in regards to The Courts being secular and no longer recognising Christianity, God and Divine Law and also in respect to using Titles to take people to Court. The good news as part of our open justice system is you can now read for yourself that judgement and see those arguments as they were released to the public this morning.

I can of course Appeal this decision and if I were to do so I would have to seek Special Leave to the High Court within 28 days. 

My Judgement of the summons judicial review of the Criminal Matter for identical charges is tomorrow Courtroom 10E in the Supreme Court NSW at 10am and my two civil matters are also still in process.  I will share more details about all of this with some live casts soon as I believe I now can to some degree ascertain what I can and cannot say in public without being further charged and/or arrested or being held in Contempt of Court.

I cannot see how I could possibly be in breach of any orders for sharing something released to the public by the Courts themselves as they too would then be in breach by publishing the Judgement, so here it is and I hope I’m not mistaken?

Respect Is Something Earned Not Something Given

To good people everywhere.

I have just received notification that judgement will be passed on my Supreme Court (Judicial Review) of the criminal charges against me this coming Friday at 10am in the Supreme Court Sydney. So I have two judgements this week, Wednesday at 10.15am in the Court of Appeal for the Equity matter (PRB v Secretary, FACS) and Friday at 10am for the Criminal Matter (PRB v The Local Court NSW and Department of Public Prosecutions) . Both of these matters are for identical charges and identical alleged evidence in every respect, for four facebook posts on my personal timeline in July of 2017 for information already previously shared and published by thousands of other people, the cases proceed in two jurisdictions at once and both matters were initiated by the same Government Department.

In my view and from my direct experience Family and Community Services NSW are without doubt the most embarrassing Government Department I have ever had the misfortune to encounter. Caseworkers with minimal social qualifications are given the power in NSW to enlist the police and remove children without a warrant and they often base their decisions on hearsay and other spurious grounds. In some instances they actually lie and mislead Courts, especially the Children’s Courts that are all closed to the public. Decisions that have a devastating impact on families and children forever, are implemented without fairness or equity and quite often they will engage around 14 policeman to assist them in their forced removals. They speak of risk of significant harm but in my opinion far more children and families are harmed by them than are ever helped by them. They also have the legal power to remove children from schools and hospitals under section 44 of the Child Protection Act without a warrant and without consulting parents, and when this happens the parents can find themselves completely excluded and ex communicated in this disgraceful process. A child can be considered at risk of harm for not attending a medical appointment, not being vaccinated, not attending courses implemented by FACS, for parents treating children with natural alternative medicines, for parents that may use unlicenced cannabis as medicine and especially if they give it to their children, for a child having a broken arm (paediatricians have to report these incidents to the department), for not giving a child prescribed medicines (even if you know the side effects are harming your child), the list goes on and on. Quite often if one parent has difficulties both parents can be criminalised and when your child is taken it can end up in a motel, or with foster carers and if the child has health issues it can end up on “off label” medical trials which are medical trials on drugs not approved for children by the Therapeutic Goods Association.

Let us pray that Truth and Justice prevails and that we can as a people retain our fundamental democratic right to our beliefs, our opinions, the right to have our grievances heard not supressed, and our fundamental God given common law right to protect our children from abuse and harm. My Court cases have for sometime in my belief, had little to no connection with either section 105 of the Child Protection Act or Court Suppression and Non Publication Orders, have no delusions, in my view it’s about the right to open public debate, free political speech, freedom of religious expression and our fundamental “right to life” and common law right to protect our children from harm.

Let us remember that respect is earned not just given, if a Government or Government Department wishes for people’s respect then they should in my view do something to earn that respect. This begins by owning mistakes not by using the Courts to suppress and hide those mistakes that so negatively impact peoples lives forever.

A quote from Sir James Munby Re J (A Child) [2013] EWHC 2694 (Fam)

“… We cannot afford to proceed on the blinkered assumption that there have been no miscarriages of justice in the family justice system. This is something that has to be addressed with honesty and candour if the family justice system is not to suffer further loss of public confidence. Open and public debate in the media is essential.”

I Pray for Truth, Justice and Love
