Pastor Pauls Court Update February

To good people everywhere. 

Today is Sunday and I give thanks to our Lord God and Creator.  I pray for an end to all suffering , to all greed and to the profound ignorance that blinds so many from Truth. 

This coming week I have two significant court matters.

On Wednesday 20th February at 10.15am I have my Supreme Court of Appeal Hearing where I will be arguing for Right of Appeal in regards to the Equity Suppression orders currently placed upon myself and Dr Andrew Katelaris. These include orders under the Court Suppression and Non Publication Orders Act and section 105 of the Child Protection Act.

Although the online directory lists the court as closed on February the 20th the Registrar has informed me that it is not a closed court, so those of you with a keen interest in this matter can attend. It is only listed as closed online for an as yet undetermined reason.  I am not sure of the time duration of this hearing but I understand arguments for right of appeal normally get 30 minutes to an hour depending on what unfolds. This matter is to seek Right of  Appeal against the Equity Matter initiated by the Secretary of FACS.

On Friday 22nd of February at 10am I have my Supreme Court Summons (Judicial Review) where I have a 1/2 day hearing to challenge the criminal charges against me for the exact same charges as enforced in Equity. These charges were also laid by the DPP at the behest of the Crown Solicitors on behalf of the Secretary of FACS. I will be arguing on the grounds of denial of natural justice, abuse of process and being forced into a kind of dual jurisdictional “legal limbo” where I cannot even enter a plea.

Both of these matters are in open courts and I welcome the support of any people whom have an awareness and understanding of these matters and the importance of them being challenged. As my self represented legal arguments require significant skills and presentation and I am often faced with a highly qaulified very well funded legal opposition, I am always most appreciative of community support.

Both matters concern the same identical charges in every respect, in two different jurisdictions at once, and concern four alleged facebook posts on my personal timeline back in July 2017.

I am thankful the child in question in these matters  is now being restored to his family after so much unnecessary suffering though I doubt the child or his family will ever truly recover from what they have all had to endure. An entire global community was also impacted as these events were witnessed by so many people on both mainstream and social media.  As an interesting point, right today thousands of people are still breaking these suppression laws, especially section 105, with regular posts on facebook stating a name, or sharing a picture, but it appears that Myself and Dr Andrew are the only two people to be charged. Even Family and Community Services themselves everyday breach their own 105 orders with pictures of children that have been through the closed children’s court, advertised for guardianship on  their facebook page.

Big thanks again to those of you that have contributed to my legal go fund me fundraiser. I have raised about $2000 so far and I have also received some additional direct payments from philanthropic individuals gifting to  my “dana” (Generosity) Account. I thank you all very much for these funds as I doubt anyone will truly understand how much work it is to run at present four court matters self represented for nearly 20 months, and the impacts this has on your life and income.  I also now spend considerable amounts of my time as an unpaid advocate,  helping families traumatised by forced child removals.  As I have mentioned before, I believe the odds are stacked so unfairly against families that have had their children removed, it is near impossible for them to get any kind of real justice, the system appears to be one of the most unfair systems I have ever encountered. The lives of families that are victims of this system of forced child removals in my opinion does little to no service to those families ever recovering. I hope through my legal work to initiate some kind of significant systemic positive change and to give some of these families much needed support and some kind of hope for real quantifiable change in the future.

Lots of love to all and please remember “Never Ever Give Up”

Pastor Pauls Court Update January 2019

To good people everywhere,

As some of you are aware I currently have four court matters in progress all related to a single event that occurred on the 19th May 2017 in which I and a number of other people were assaulted. Because of suppression laws applied to me I am not comfortable to share any of the details concerning the child in question other than to say that I am very happy that he is being restored to his kind loving family, a kind loving family who I believe should never have had their child removed.

In regards to my two civil matters PRB v State of NSW – Battery and PRB v the DPP – Collateral Abuse. The first matter has been set down for 27th May for a three day Trial in Newcastle District Court and I will be requiring a number of people as witnesses. I would like the following people to contact me via messenger to discuss this matter with them. I will also subpoena some of the witnesses that are essential to my prosecution including the senior police officer at the Church prior to this event and some others.

Present outside the hospital at the time were some of the following individuals:

Donna Snowdon, Barry John Futter, Jacinda Walker, Kerry-Ann Taylor, Sue-Ellen Sloan, Christopher Sloan, Brianee Haskew (juvenile), Rachael Parker, Jacob & Elijah Harris, Karen Burge, Cindy Becker, Jodi Becker and one other child, Bronwyn Duke, Kirsty White and a young man called Sam who I have not been able to locate.

The following people were pepper sprayed and assaulted

Paul Robert Burton, Brianee Haskew (juvenile), Donna Snowdon, Barry John Futter, Kerry-Ann Taylor, Chris Sloan and Young Sam.

In regards to the collateral abuse matter, in these proceedings I have filed a statement of claim against the DPP for charging me for three of 10 offences I cannot possibly be guilty of and I am claiming that it is an undeniable abuse of process. The defence has filed a Notice of Motion to strike our my claim and I have filed a Notice of Motion to strike out their strike out. This matter is listed for next Tuesday the 5th of February in Newcastle District Court from 9.30am. Please feel free to support me in this as I am arguing why I was charged by the child abuse and sex crimes department for something that has nothing to do with either child abuse or sex crimes and why I have been charged for offences I cannot possibly be guilty of. I believe it is a deliberate misuse of the court system and an undeniable abuse of process to take someone to court for charges he cannot possibly ever be guilty of.

My Appeal of the Equity Suppression Matter and my Summons to the Supreme Court for the alleged criminal charges against me begin again around February the 20th in the Supreme Court Sydney and the Sydney Court Of Appeal. I will share more about these matters soon.

Big thanks to those of you that have contributed to my legal go fund me fundraiser. So far I have raised about $1700 and I have used $802 to pay the outstanding Supreme Court Fees for my Private Prosecution that was eventually closed down by the DPP on the grounds that no force was used? I still find that laughable and often imagine if I did the same to them and came with 14 of my mates all armed with guns and tasers to force them to do something against their will, if I would be able to get away with it too?  I am self represented in all my matters but if I lose any of them the first action against me will be to try and charge me for costs. This is a standard process in the judicial system and the mechanism  used to dissuade people taking legal action, as many do not want to risk losing their assets. I have at this time paid all my own court fees for various legal actions so I can at this time still continue my fight for justice. In most matters I remit the fees until after the court matters have concluded as my life and career have been all but decimated in the last 18 months.

Anyway, I am very appreciative of those of you who have contributed and who believe in me and what I am doing. It is a rather significant cross to bear but I am determined to have this matter heard in truth as I believe there will be no resolution unless some form of justice prevails. I also believe that unless we challenge these appalling actions initiated by our own Government, how will things ever change?

We demand Truth and we demand Justice as is our right and I hope those of you that witnessed these events support me in this. We must ensure that we do all we can to hold our Government culpable and that they stop removing children without right or justification ,without any judicial oversight and most importantly to stop supressing the Truth from the public, for it is Truth that sets us free.

Love to all and never forget

Dr Andrew Katelaris Letter to The Premier

To good people everywhere.
Today is Sunday and Dr Andrew Katelaris asked if I would be kind enough to share with you all his recent letter to the NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian, concerning his continued fight to help children with intractable epilepsy and other serious conditions as matter of medical necessity.
How unfortunate is it, that we exist at a time in Australia where good people are criminalised for providing such assistance to our children and grandchildren. I ask the question, what kind of government do we actually have that continues to persecute both people helping those in need, and the families and children themselves. It is painful to see sick children, especially those who have been forcibly removed from their kind loving families, being forced to take allopathic medicines that have been proven ineffective for their conditions, when I have also seen with my own eyes the immense benefits of medicinal cannabis with those same children. What kind of society have we become that creates such needless suffering to so many children and families all around the country, and at what cost. It is my belief that when a government condones and supports the needless suffering of its own children, for what appears to be nothing more than greed and self interest, that government will soon cease to exist.
Let us all pray for positive change, let us also pray for righteous retribution of all those whom are fully culpable, and  lets us all vote for Independents in the coming State and Federal Elections, Amen.

Hon. Gladys Berejiklian, 
Premier of New South Wales
Parliament House, Sydney
You would undoubtedly be aware of the great benefit provided by medical cannabis to certain children afflicted by conditions not amenable to current allopathic treatment, such as intractable epilepsy, autism and Tourette’s Syndrome, amongst others. 
Last week I was acquitted of criminal charges involving a large quantity of cannabis leaf and cannabis oil, charges which carried a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.  The jury of twelve found I had acted out of medical necessity, forced into breaking the law to provide life saving medicine to those afflicted children, there being no available alternative.  The jury also heard that carefully prepared artisanal cannabis may be more medically efficacious than the pharmaceutical preparations currently available.  
The government, both state and federal, should take the responsibility for providing the best possible medical care, especially to the most vulnerable of sick children, but regarding medical cannabis it has adopted an obstructionist policy, sanctioning only pharmaceutical cannabis, which is limited in supply, very expensive and of reduced effectiveness, compared with whole plant artisanal extracts.  
The cost to the public purse for my prosecution was large.  My lab was raided by twelve officers who spent the whole day there.  I was arrested and detained for two days until released on bail.  Some months later bail was revoked and I was incarcerated for two months in a maximum security gaol, until granted bail in the district court.  Some month later I was arrested for the possession of 25ml of massage oil, deemed to be cannabis by the arresting officer, but found to be non-drug massage oil by analysis, not performed until five months after my arrest.  I spent four months in Cessnock maximum security gaol, was refused bail by a Supreme Court judge and finally granted bail by the Court of Criminal Appeal and then had the charges dropped for lack of substance.  
My trial went for four weeks in the District Court, with a detective in attendance each day, obviously ignoring other more important duties.  There were other expenses involving analysis and unnecessary fingerprint and DNA testing.  The total cost would be well into six figures.  In addition, each child with intractable epilepsy not treated effectively with medical cannabis continues to burden the health system with emergency ambulance call-out, doctors consultations, pharmaceutical expenses and frequent hospital admissions, often to intensive care.  
I have sent copies of this letter to your police minister Troy Grant, who has been quoted as saying how passionately he cares about protecting children and to Mike Fuller, his Commissioner.  Now is the time to prove this is more than hollow words.  The only humane and practical way forward with medical cannabis is to instigate an urgent moratorium on police interdiction on cannabis produced or ingested for medical purposes.  In pharmacological terms cannabis is much safer than paracetamol.  Issues of potency and purity are easily dealt with by providing access to analytical facilities.  
Any reasonable person should consider the care and well being of children to be a priority, but here we see instruments of your government used to harass patients, their families and carers and to restrict access to life saving medicine to those afflicted with severe conditions.  A moratorium can be applied as a matter of policy, without the need for a law change, which can be a lengthy process.  The patients we are dealing with do not have the luxury of this delay.  As demonstrated by the jury of twelve, representing the people of this State, the laws restricting access to medical cannabis are onerous and oppressive and may and indeed should be ignored for the greater good.
I am prepared to meet with you or your delegates to provide further information on this vital topic, so that a moratorium can be applied with the least possible delay.  I can be contacted by email at
