Open letter to Stephen Hoadley Human Rights Professor

stephen hoadleyThe following is  an  email  sent to Steve Hoadley,  after I had phoned him 22.01.2013  on ext 87031 (ph + 64 9 373 7599) and asked him to assist  and mediate, he refused to speak to me  .

the email reads

Stephen  as a professor of human rights I am  somewhat disappointed that you stand by and let WYN commit such atrocities on   a fellow human being. If you condone this  it appears somewhat Hypocritical to  me.

She is supporting a breach of the united nations convention against corruption  and  if you were to take some time to look at the evidence you would see that she is not acting  in any ethical  or legal manner.

She has been using her standing and her perceived reputation     to oppress me,  she has torn my family apart, brought huge stress   on me physical physiological  and financial ,  liquidated my company on false evidence ( it was discovered and the company  was reinstated )   ,  and is supporting   the concealment of corruption.

None of this  would have happened if she had   checked the facts when she started with AWINZ   or if AWINZ had actually existed instead of being  a  pseudonym   for Neil Wells.   I realise that she is now in it too deep  and it is much  easier   to keep on the attack of me   and  hold on to that glimmer of hope that she can get away with it. Her incompetence and negligence  is what  has contributed to this  and I hold her  responsible for the part she has played in the concealment of corruption .

She   is a public figure  and I will ensure  accountability of her    , I may even have to resort to picketing outside your home and the    TCDC  but  I will do it .  7 years  of attack is too much  this has to stop.

They are still after $70-80,000, what is the point of me working  I don’t earn money  like that   I  will have to sell the  family home    My crime has been to be a whistle blower on serious public corruption…  do you also    condone  what has happened?

If you are concerned  you  would talk to me  you would   at least take time to listen    but    I now realise that this is how the so called elite keep themselves    “ pure “ it is by  refusing to talk and throwing up brick walls.

Thanks goodness for the internet.   I will be posting this letter to  you  on  so that there is a public record of my  plea for help to you .

The promotion of under age child sex – New Zealand’s dirty, dark secret

The following is an article which has been forwarded to me  by the father of a girl who was sexually abused her in New Zealand.

A very valid point is raised  so I   will publish the news item in the interest of transparency

In India this month, in the wake of a violent rape in Delhi, there are calls to suspend politicians accused of sex crimes1.


In the UK over the past few months, resulting from the fallout from the Jimmy Savile scandal, a large number of BBC employees and politicians have been investigated and/or arrested in connection with child sex abuse2.


In the US over the past few weeks, hundreds have been arrested for child sex crimes3.


In Australia in Nov 2012, the government announced a Royal Commission of Inquiry into child sex abuse4.


In New Zealand in Nov 2012, the Head of State, His Excellency, Lieutenant General the Right Honourable Sir Jerry Mateparae presented Queen’s awards to two known serial paedophiles, Karl Berghan and Sam Brens5.


Spot the difference?

to Talking Works :corrupt practices of Tom Didovich will you support me or condone his actions?

TOM DIDOVICH talking works   .. if Talking works Tom Didovich  why don’t you  talk  and discuss instead of  covering up corruption !

Shark 2
Good afternoon Karen and Tom ( and others cc’d as  see below )

I am making this an open letter and addressing it to those associated with the talking works  web site.

I have to wonder if  you  have  any formal   relationship  or just simply all come under the same informal banner  I  have not been able to establish if you are  a proper organisation as such because that  very much touches at the heart of my   communication to you.

I was wondering if you  have a code of ethics ?  each of you are  associated   with one another under the same umbrella  and I wondered if  you actually tolerate unscrupulous actions of one of your number   and  if you have required standards of conduct.

I am talking about Tom Didovich  who does not practice what he preaches.  He is  one of three people who have made my life  hell over the past 7 years and I very much would  like this to end.

Tom  is on a trust which has allowed charitable funds to be used to relentlessly pursue me through the court  on a  un proved   claim of defamation   so that the gross corruption which he is party to   could  be covered up.

Tom was  the manager of Dog control in Waitakere city council and   facilitated  a scam   which  meant that  public resources were being misused  for personal gain.

I have written to some of you  about Tom before the post is  here

I have just completed three articles about the misuse of the funds which the trust which  Tom Didovich is on –

these articles are

I am a licenced Private Investigator, Former Police Sergeant  and  was acting for  a dog control officer  employed at Waitakere  who wanted to know why she was  volunteering her council paid time to   the animal welfare Institute of New Zealand( AWINZ )

AWINZ transpired to be just a name , a name which was promoted and associated with Tom Didovich and  through false information which  Tom Didovich supplied to the minister  attained  law  enforcement powers  identical to those enjoyed by the RNZSPCA.

When I Proved that AWINZ did not exist  I  asked the simple question  of MAF  “ why does this law enforcement authority  not exist?”

and asked Waitakere city council “why this organisation operated from their premises and used their staff and infrastructure?”.   Didovich had signed an agreement with Neil Wells for AWINZ   see here   then when he left council Wells took Toms position  and Tom became a member of a trust  called  AWINZ   all in an attempt to cover up.  Tom is   up to his neck in this convoluted corrupt practice   .

As a result of this   Tom Didovich has been a party to the  supporting the court proceedings financially through the use of the Lord Dowding fund , and  becoming part of a cover up trust to confuse the authorities and mislead the court. I have  approached him several times and asked him to talk  because talking works    but  he   continues down the  path of abuse, which in my mind contradicts everything he is  now supposed to stand for.

He is  intrinsically  entwined in this entire corrupt saga  which  has  torn my family apart , cost me my 23 year  marriage , saw my company liquidated on false evidence, seen continued   court  action  to  financially strip  me( it has cost me  some $300,000) .   My crime:  I was a whistle blower on a  matter of public concern.

So I am  asking each and every one of you

  1. do you condone   one of your own  causing the very  problems which you  are there   to solve,  I was near suicide a number of times, suffered depression   and lived in fear for many years   with what Tom and his associates were doing to me.
  2. If talking works  and  you live by your mantra  would  you intervene  and   assist  someone who is   being abused at the hands of one of your own.
  3. Will you help me and support me

You  either  walk the talk or  you stand by and allow abuse to continue.

I would welcome your support.

I will post a copy of this  on my transparency  web site   . I look forward to seeing that you  people are genuine  with regards to your  cause.

The law commission has published its report  on the Review of Official Information Act 1982 and Local Government Official Information Act 1987  submissions can be made online  and the  acual papers are able to be downloaded

The Public’s Right to Know: Review of the Official Information Legislation (NZLC R125, 2012)

Summary of Key Recommendations


Had I know that submissions were being called for I for one will be making a submission in view of the Wendy Brandon   saga.

I have to wonder why the council lawyer gets involved in blocking a request for official information, this apparently is becoming a trend over seas   and somehow a law degree gives a person more clout to prevent transparency.

I have made a complaint to the law society  with regards to Wendy Brandon’s actions  as  her obligations as a lawyer are to  act according to the  rule of law   and  as a council solicitor the  law spells out the requirement for her to act in an open transparent manner.

The law society have come back and said that they will await the reply of the ombudsmen.  Given that I have already been down the  Ombudsmen path in my protracted AWINZ matter  I am braced for another 2 year wait before  the information I have requested  is released.

Apparently   if it released through the ombudsmen I can then take the matter back to the law society   and they will look at Ms Brandon again.

So  with official information act request and LGOIMA  request  the  right to refusal under    the  provisions   of the acts  can be abused  by referring all matters to the ombudsmen’s office.  This in turn becomes bogged down and the who process   comes to a screaming halt.

Now if councils were fined for unnecessarily withholding information    that would force compliance much the same way as we are fined by council when we stay in our parking spot  for a minute too long.

You have to question    who the lawyer works for   does the lawyer act for the public who the council is supposed to represent, ensuring that the public’s interest is protected or does the lawyer work for the employees of the council ensuring that corrupt practices are concealed by preventing transparency?

It is our rates money that pays the wages  .

While on the  topic of submission  be sure to  check out the parliament site  and make submission on   issues which you wish  to comment on.
