On April 27th 2006 I became a board member of a legally incorporated charitable trust Animal welfare Institute of New Zealand. We had applied to IRD and received Donee status and had confirmed that they had no record of any other organisation or group of people using that name.
On May 14th 2006 we made an application for the trade mark AWINZ which eventually was registered to us un opposed.
We had set up a website AWINZ.co.nz which stated that we were not the approved organisation and drew attention to the differences between the two.
She said that she was a lawyer and that we should give up our web site and change our name. She would not say who she was representing, the phone call was nothing but bullying in my opinion, she said it was urgent that we complied with her demands , I asked if we could meet to discuss the matter.
In emails from Vivienne Parre sent immediately after wards she made threats against my Private investigators licence .
As indicated by the emails she had also sought to have us removed from the register , by her own words she had initiated this action . Nick Wright and Neil Wells were also to put Pressure on or web host who told them to get a high court injunction .
I located her address and in view of her urgency called in to see her at her home , she was not in and responded by having her husband Nick Wright serve a trespass notice.
On 26 June we the board of AWINZ , I personally and my company Verisure received a Brookfield’s letter signed By David Neutze .
Despite the claims of the letter that a trust deed accompanied it no such document was present , The deed was however forwarded to us By Nick Wright several days later.Having been created By Mr Wells late on 27 June ( click on the documents properties to view these details ) .
We asked a number of times if the trustees from both sides coud meet there by resolution could be achieved but we were not taken up on our offer instead on 18 July a statement of claim was filed By David Neutze of Brookfields.
We were to find out later that Mr Wells was at that time in possession of a document, only days old , which related to Vivienne’s statement in her email 4 JUNE “Due to the urgency of the situation I am helping in the meantime in a voluntary capacity and have “gotten the ball rolling” with the Ministry to see your organisation removed from the register as quickly as possible.”
This reply gave an avenue for legal redress – we have to wonder why was this ignored and why was there no affidavit filed with the statement of claim. was it because intimidation was better than an application which relied on proof?
I will write more about these documents later but it should be noted that the trustees in the alleged deed and the plaintiffs are not one and the same. In 5 years we have never been shown a connection other than by inference.
I had cause to speak to a previous colleague of mine Inspector Dave SIMPSON of the New Zealand Police , he told me that Neil Wells had engaged a woman lawyer who was working for him pro bono.
After receiving this information I checked with the law society and found that Vivienne Parre /Wright did not have a practicing certificate. I asked her about it and she got one the next day 15 August 2006 She never had any further involvement that I was aware of with the matter but Nick Wright took over.. more on him later.
Until now I was uncertain as to Vivienne Parres involvement but it has been clarified by her former Husband who has stated in official documents “After some months, as Mr Wells … together with the other trustees of AWINZ at the time, sought legal counsel. Initial contact was made by Mr Wells to Ms Vivienne Parre (who was at that time married to Mr Wright). Ms Parre was employed at Brookfields at the time, and the instruction in turn came to Brookfields.”
My enquiries at the time had ascertained that Vivienne Parre was not working at Brookfields , at least she was not shown on the staff list and the receptionist was of the opinion that she did not work there.
Vivienne Wrights marriage with Nick Wright came to an end and she disappeared off the scene she had changed her name to Vivienne HOLM and was working first with Bell Gully and then as an , associate, Chen Palmer .
Vivienne Holm is now employed by the ministry for the environment.
Her former Husband Nick Wright is a resource management lawyer no doubt a very useful connection for both.
I find it somewhat Ironic that on a Bell Gully document it said of Vivienne Holm “Vivienne’s key practice areas include resource management and planning, with particular expertise on local government matters”
Does that expertise mean covering up for private enterprise such as AWINZ which leaches on to public funds for private pecuniary gain ? And why if here was a legitimate claim could there not be any evidence of it ?
Tomorrow I will write about Mr Neutze and question what obligations do lawyers have to ensure that documents that they sign and documents they file are factual?
I will then cover the involvement of former Mayor WYN Hoadley
