Mycoplasma Bovis a blessing for the greenies and waterways or simply too convenient?

 Last year a number of news items  were prominent with regards to  the issues of dairy farming  and the effect on  waterways   see here   here   here and here 

Put simply, more cows have meant more nutrient and pathogen pollution of waterways. Across the whole country, the number of dairy cows increased by over two million between 1992 and 2011 – an 86 percent expansion. During the same period, average dairy herd size in New Zealand more than doubled from 169 to 386.

Now it occurs to me that   Mycoplasma Bovis  appears to be a blessing for  the greenies or is it simply just a convenient way to   reduce  cattle numbers ?  I have first hand evidence  of how  MPI can be manipulated and how  facts are irrelevant   to them.

Bryce Edwards  published a  great little article yesterday Political Roundup: The M. Bovis debacle deserves more debate. His opening statement  totally echos my experience with MPI

What has emerged from the debate over the Mycoplasma Bovis saga is that New Zealand appears to have been let down by authorities – especially politicians and senior government bureaucrats who have mismanaged the country’s biosecurity, leaving farming in turmoil, and the taxpayer picking up most of the tab for their negligence.

I had cause to speak to a bovine vet the other day  and  he  confirmed that the tests of mycoplasma bovis  are  not particularly reliable,so a whole herd is put down because one cow tested positive, this could  have been a false positive  but who cares  lets put the whole herd down  at a time when Gypsy day is seeing  other herds migrate freely from one area to another .  Guess that fits with the agenda of culling as many   cattle as possible .

It has made me realise that the  characters in the old  TV series gliding on  are still alive and well  and working  at MPI ,  they may of course have taken the precaution to drink their tea and coffee  black .

My own experience with the incompetence of MPI  ( then MAF)goes back 12 years .

I questioned serious corruption which had allowed a person closely associated  with  key players in  MPI   to  write legislation for their own business plan , advise on it  as ” independent  advisor” to the select committee and while MPI knew this person was severely conflicted they stood by and allowed him to  provide comment on caucus  papers which saw the government approve an application for coercive law enforcement powers to a non existent organisation  based on a fraudulent application.

MAF/ MPI are fully aware of it  and have refused to undertake  an investigation, my own opinion for this  is that the lawyer who provided a crown law opinion  was Peter McCarthy who gave a detailed legal opinion but didn’t  even think about checking if the application he was commenting on was legitimately made and that AWINZ existed  .

As a whistleblower on the AWINZ matter I was crucified , the first thing MPI did was  to  attempt to prosecute me for  passing myself off  as a MAF officer, their evidence was so thin that  they resolved to warn me  despite the fact that  there should not have been an investigation  in the first place  . This was tied up with another substantial fraud  see Boss invents accountant to escape $60k debt – NZ Herald and Charges over alleged fake liquidator – NZ Herald

That was the  very first attempt to discredit me,   and   to   properly conceal the matter Peter Mc Carthy  was made chief legal officer  of MPI 

Despite  untold complaints to government , ombudsmen , state services commission , police ,SFO and untold ministers  this issue has been totally concealed while I   was refused a renewal of my  private investigators licence   and was labeled a ” conspiracy theorist ”

This has been  total bullying an  white washing of a criminal act .

Wells was able to  negotiate with  MPI to withhold information from me  so that  the complaints to the  law society etc  could be dealt with  without the inconvenience of facts  getting in the way also see here   and here .This crucial document was the audit report which totally expose AWINZ as a sham  but even despite their own findings  nothing was done but  AWINZ conveniently  stopped being an approved organisation  when the super city was formed.

 

 

 

Catering Limited : Muse Eatery : Samuel North in Liquidation

 Just three weeks after  Samuel North closed the  doors to Muse eatery   the company catering Limited which  operated the business muse eatery  has  gone into liquidation  .

It would appear that the share holder

HANIA TRUSTEE (CATERING) LIMITED Hoggard Law Limited, 29 Hania Street, Mt Victoria, Wellington, 6011 , New Zealand

has placed the company into liquidation  and appointed their own liquidators .

Samuel North was the share holder of the company but   moved  the share holding into a trust in  april 2016  .  It has all been very predictable  and North continued to sell Grab one   and groupon deals  even after he knew he was closing, we  believe that this is  fraudulent.

Our suggestion is that if you  are owed money that you  attend the liquidators  watershed  meeting  when it is announced and  ensure that independent  liquidators are appointed ( as opposed to one  appointed by North )   .

When a company  appoints its own liquidators  the  liquidation is   likely not to be  as transparent  or fair as it would be  if the liquidator is working for  a creditor .

It is our honest opinion  that the Liquidators will   sell on the   Chattels, at a nominal price and  the phoenix will  fly again   when North purchases them .

Muse eatery opened its doors before Muse on Allen had even been placed in to liquidation and  it is believed that many of its  assets actually belonged to muse.

We have  been contacted  by many persons   who are  owed by North , North is avoiding service by debt collectors , there are  former staff members who  have unresolved  grievances .

Samuel north has removed the  face book page, the  linked in page  and the web site .

Update

Samuel North  has engaged Stephen Iorns <stephen@iornslegal.co.nz>   and is bleating defamation

We Hope the   barrister gets  paid .

Malcolm North from the ministry of social development , Bullies us again

An email  from Malcolm North  has been  forwarded to me, it  is grossly defamatory  and bullying and  alleges  that Samuel terminated his lease.  we would like to hear from any one at MSD ( ministry of  social development), is he also a bully at work  because he certainly is in emails, again speculating and threatening  by stating ” I have spoken to xxxxxx employer about his behaviour so don’t expect him to be employed for much longer‘ it is noted that his email had this  disclaimer ——————————- This email and any attachments may contain information that is confidential and subject to legal privilege. If you are not the intended recipient, any use, dissemination, distribution or duplication of this email and attachments is prohibited. If you have received this email in error please notify the author immediately and erase all copies of the email and attachments. The Ministry of Social Development accepts no responsibility for changes made to this message or attachments after transmission from the Ministry. ——————————-” does that indicate that he sent the email from the ministy of social developments servers and using his Muserestaurant email address.  Not a good look

But getting back to the statement   that Samuel terminated his lease, this  generally requires a ” notice period ” so when di dhe give notice and how did this  line up with the  Grab one and groupon offers? https://new.grabone.co.nz/restaurants-bars-cafes/european-restaurants/p/muse-eatery-and-bar-13   and   https://www.grouponnz.co.nz/deals/muse-bar-and-eatery   

the pdf   copies downloaded tonight are  here  Muse Eatery and Bar • GrabOne NZ and here    Muse Eatery & Bar – Up To 60% Off – Wellington _ Groupon

We first heard the rumour that Muse was closing on the 18th  January , this is  just 10 days after   the   deals were offered on line  .  If you have an uncertain future   then 10 days out would you offer  deals . These offers are valid till end of march and  early april  as shown on the PDF’s  so where are they  going to  be honoured if  Samuel knew all along that he had  terminated  the  lease .

at least 80 people  spent $99  on groupon  =$7,920    at least  10 people  spent $195  on groupon  =$1,950   total $9,870

86 people bought the  grab one deal at $69 =5,934  total for the two deals potentially outstanding  $15,804

We look forward to hearing from the landlord.   The land lord in Allen street was left out of pocket according to liquidators papers  time will tell if  the name of this land lord will ultimately  appear on the liquidation papers for catering company .

The web page which   was paid up  until the 16 th February was pulled  5 February and now defaults to  the web serves page , The face book page was taken down   last week .So if the web page and Face book pages were pulled  why not pull these deals ?   Why  leave them up why no formal announcement .

We have  heard from  reliable  sources  that  there  are substantial  debts .

Any one out of pocket  with a provable  debt please contact us we are coordinating  a group action .

we will keep you posted  we know there is more to come

Open letter to the ethics committee of the New Zealand association of Counsellors

Opethicsen letter New Zealand association of Counsellors 

From: Grace Haden

To: ‘ethicssecretary@nzac.org.nz’ <ethicssecretary@nzac.org.nz>
Subject: harassment and bullying by Debbie Norths son and Husband.

I am a licenced Private investigator.

I have been assisting  a young  chef who has had all  his equity  in a company stolen  from him  by  Debbie North , her husband  and   son.

Jozsef   invested $64,000  in  a restaurant Muse on Allen     there were  two share holders Debbie’s son  Sam  and Jozsef  30 % Samuel   70% Jozsef .

Debbie became an alternate director  but  exercised full director powers  and allowed her son to transfer  21% of the shares from Jozsef into his own name   contrary to the provisions of legislation and without any legal basis. This  reduced Jozsef’s share holding to  49%.  No other money was invested into the company   apart from  funds  clearly introduced as LOANS by the  Norths and Samuels girlfriend    Annabelle Torrejos

Debbie   was  then party to  making her husband Malcolm a director   and the three of them removed Jozsef  as director   and then transferred the remailing shares to Samuel making him the 100% shareholder   of the company while he had not introduced any equity in to the company and   was in fact showing a deficit of some  $6000  of drawings against  equity in 2014

In court documents  she claimed this was  an  error   how ever this error has not been corrected by her  despite the fact that she filed the annual reports with the companies office 21 October 2013 and
09 October 2014 and failed to  correct the share holding   .   these are serious offences under the companies act

I was taken to court  for alleged Harassment after the  lawyer they employed to act  for the  company ( but  in reality only acting for  their interests) accused me of contempt.   I advised him that he had a legal duty to comply with the law and be independent  in acting for the company  and  so  I was taken to court for harassment .

The court action was in Wellington  ( I live in Auckland )    I   told the lawyers   who were taking this action that I would give an undertaking not  to contact  this  sensitive lawyer who  apparently  did not wish to  be independent and comply with the law .

The court date was concealed from me and I was advised  of the hearing at 9 am on the day of the hearing     and therefore could not make it to wellington on time.  I was  called a serial defamer and harasser   based  on  the lawyers submissions  and    have been ordered to pay $5000   for this privilege    I have asked  for this decision  to be recalled as   the process was not fair  and transparent.

The Bullying and harassment in this matter is  beyond belief.  I am not he only one subjected to it – Jozsef has had    abuse hurled at him and has been  physically threatened in court by Malcolm North .

After losing his  own restaurant  Samuel taunts him     by saying  what is it like flipping ham burgers..  and  making himself out to be the all successful chef  based on the fact that  he “ owns “ a restaurant which Jozsef  has  effectively  purchased the chattels for   before being kicked out three months into the  operation .

The police are only   good for writing  warning letters     and nothing  further   appears to be on their agenda   other than getting people to take things to court  where they are subjected to massive legal bills (  Jozsef has already paid out  over $50,000)

amendment:   It is  our honest opinion that  Malcolm has been attempting to  interfere with Jozsef’s  employment   apparently by using his capacity  as Employment Support Representative in  the ministry of social development . This  honest opinion is based on events which occurred at Jozsefs work place   and   events which played out .   Malcolm has alleged that this statement is declamatory  but it is our  honest opinion that this is the case perhaps Malcom would like to explain why he met with Jozsefs  supervisor  and why  Jozsef was then put in the position that he was placed in . Honest opinion is never defamatory 

Jozsef  is under extreme pressure and I fear that the ongoing attacks on may have serious repercussions  . this has been going on  for three years

Even after the police  told  Samuel  and Malcolm not to send  any more emails they have continued to do so  making  false claims  and  bullying remarks about personal relationships  remarks which are    untrue and have no substance but are made  in an attempt to hurt  and denigrate

I find it ironic that Debbie works for the mediation service      and I see the ethics of her and her family  counterproductive to the aims and  values of your organization

Since Debbie made a claim to the court that   Jozsef’s shares were  transferred in error  she should seek to correct it, instead she chose to resign as  director  and has allowed her husband and son to continue harassing   and bullying.

This has to  stop    and that is why I am bringing this to your attention

I have Lots of information about this on Transparency.net.nz  and in the interest of transparency  I will publish this letter there as an open letter  the public has a tight to know that you employ a  membership secretary who is  party to all of this .

I doubt that you will do anything  as  we appear to  be incredibly good at duck shoving in NZ  it is always someone else’s problem  .  The problem in this case   is the lack of enforcement of our laws  once upon a time    people who committed these offences  were behind bars  now they  just   bully people    and hopefully  their victims will commit suicide  and  then they can say see  he/ she was mad all along.

This is why NZ’s  suicide rate is higher than   our  road toll and drownings put together  .  You and any one reading this has to  act     we force people to go to extreme expense   to save the one or two toddlers who drown in  domestic pools each year  but we allow bulling in adults  and through lawyers to continue .

I do hope that you act.    I fear that you will not .

Abuse of company legislation

It is well worth watching this U tube clip   from fair  go  this was filmed in 2013  things are probably worse now

Samuel North alleged owner of Muse On Allen – interview and comments.

Samuel North was interviewed on   Concrete playground 

We would like to set the record straight   by providing facts .

Yup okay that was impressively disastrous. You’ve certainly picked up from there though, you established this place at 21, which is ridiculously young, what gave you the confidence to do that?

SN: My parents gave me really good support, they’ve supported me the whole way through it. Especially my dad, he’s been in business before and really wanted me to do this I think. Probably not so young though. I could have waited a few more years but I was just too keen, too eager to own my own place, even if it was going to be something else. This place actually wasn’t even supposed to be a restaurant – I just wanted to have a bar but it turned out completely differently.

Reality 

The chattels of Muse on Allen were purchased  using  Jozsefs money .  this is a copy of the sale and purchase agreement purchaseopeing accountsas can be seen the place was purchased for $90.000  of which  $70,000  was  funds which  Jozsef introduced  see  here ( all enlarge on clicking )

In return  Jozsef received a 70 %  share holding 

Samuel $30 % based on the fact that HE was getting a loan from his parents and girlfriend as  can be seen  Samuel’s total investment into Muse on Allen which he claims he owns  is   a staggering  $10,000  from his bonus bonds. 

What was behind that huge need to h ave your own place?

SN: I just really hated working for people to be honest. I hated getting told what to do all the time. It was driving me crazy. I was just like fuck, what am I doing? I just wanted to do my own thing. 

Reality  

 yes the  reality is that  this statement is true  and it would appear that this dislike of being told what to do extended to   working with some one who has  just purchased the chattels for the business .  How true “I just wanted to do my own thing.”

Starting a business so young, was it kind of hard to get people to take you seriously?

SN: Yeah it was really hard, especially in the first year. I’d hired all these young people who were like fuck it, he’s 21 what the fuck does he know? It made me realise that I needed to be hiring the right people who were going to support me and who wanted to listen to me. I find that actually hiring older and more mature is better. I’ve got a lot of older staff now. They’re still in their like, thirties and twenties and stuff but they are passionate about the restaurant, the food and the service.

Reality  

 From what we have seen the person who  was calling all the shots in the restaurant was Malcolm North, he was   calling all the shots even before  he was made a director.    the scenario  goes   Samuel and Jozsef were directors. Samuel gets his  mother Debbie North , to be an alternate director  she  completes her own forms ( which is actually a no no  )  and uploads this to the companies register  and back dates it to the date of  the company formation. 

They now  use this as a two votes to one directorship and use this to    reduce Jozsefs share holding  without any new capital going into the business and without  any consent from Jozsef.  what they did is totally  against the  companies act . 

It is in reality Malcolm and Debbie   who were  directors with Samuel  in the first  year after passing resolutions  in private to get  Jozsef out .

 

In a herald  article   –Your Business: Young Entrepreneurs Samuel North is reported as  saying

The founder and head chef of Wellington-based restaurant Muse on Allen worked and saved hard for six years, and got a loan from his parents and help from his partner to set up the restaurant, which last year took out a top culinary prize – the Visa Wellington on a Plate Award.

Reality

As  we have shown earlier the opening accounts of Muse on Allen , they are evidence that  Samuel  put in $10,000.

Samuel Norths statement  above is  correct but it  conveniently leaves out the  $70,000  investment of his  business partner  who was then  in our opinion and no doubt in the opinion of any right thinking person “ shafted.”

The  financial accounts for Muse on Allen   show the  Loans from his parents  and Anabel Torrejos  and the share holding of Jozsef  but the companies records   up until  May this year showed Samuel as the only share holder. After that date they brought in Janine Corke a strategist of  Corum Limited   just days after she became a director  Jozsef was sued in the   district court . 

The shares Samuel North held were effectively stolen  from Jozsef  and  were never legally transferred and have certainly never been compensated for – there is no other way of saying but it is  Fraud  at the worst and a serious breach of the companies act at the least

Muse on Allen opened   in  September three months later Jozsef  was kicked out  and they  blamed him  for the company not   being profitable.. show us a company which  is profitable after  3 months .

Now Malcolm North on behalf of Muse on Allen  is  suing  Jozsef for the  losses in  what is reported in the press to be a ” very successful ” business owned and operated by  Samuel North , so successful that  the company is claiming to be insolvent  see  Statement of Claim. Goes to show  that  even after  three years  the company is still  running at a loss despite   all the glowing  press reports which say it is full night after night.. but then that is the power of advertising and a different story . 

Malcolm North supplied free of privilege the end of year accounts which   clearly show   that Jozsef  is a share holder   and  has  been totally alienated   from the company which Samuel  pretends that it is  his own- even   issuing a trespass notice against  Jozsefannual accountsshae holder accounts

False allegations are now being made of contempt of court  this is because lies  have a way  of getting tangled  and drive  desperate people to making  desperate accusations.

Samuel and Malcolm  you could try    paying Jozsef back his   money  and  his costs that you have    trumped up through  delay tactics. 

Let  us look at the future  by  being responsible   with regard to what you have done in the  past ,  what you have done to Jozsef is not  right .

Good Morning Michaela

I refer you to    the latest post on  Transparency New Zealand  . Open letter to the minister of small business

I also advise the court that  Mr xxxxxxxxx is  willfully   misdirecting the court as per  His honour Justice Collins  minute  the documents  which were provided under rule 8.30 (4)   are held in the offices of Duncan Cotterill .  They have not  been made available to me .

The  documents on Transparency were provided by me  and as shown in the attachment that Mr xxxxxxxx attached to his legal secretaries  affidavit   the documents    came from the following sources

Page 1. Direct from the plaintiff he had this document in his possessing from the time he purchased  the assets.

Page 2  this is available on line  from the companies office   free of charge and available to the public

Page 3  this is a copy of  a document which Jozsef has had in his possession  from  a date prior to the court proceedings .

Page 4 -10 these are available on line  from the companies office   free of charge and available to the public

Page 11-54 . these are the documents  for  the district court proceedings in Which  Muse on Allen , whichis currently in liquidating court  took against Jozsef  for the losses which were incurred in the company based on  the 63.4% share holding which the  SOC alleged he has ,  being  the majority shares in Muse On Allen the very shares which were unlawfully transferred   by Samuel north  from Jozsef to himself.

Page 55    a document  available   through the land transport  register

I have repeatedly made Mr xxxxxxxxx aware  that   the documents did not  come  from discovery in the high court and indeed it is self evident that   they  were   served free of  confidentiality   By Malcolm North in the  district court .

I appreciate that this may not  be convenient for Mr Abricrossow  but he should not be using his office to  conceal fraud  and the evidence is obvious that a fraud has occurred  in that  Jozsefs shares  have been  deceitfully  removed and withheld  using the court.

I remind Mr xxxxxxxxxx that   he should be acting in accordance with Section 4 of the lawyers and conveyancers act.

We have not  breached   the  discovery in  the high court   and it is an abuse of process form Mr xxxxxxxxxx that allege that .

Response :Did he walk or was he pushed.  I suspect he walked just like pirate’s made their victims walk the plank.   Yes its all Jozsef’s  fault because he wouldn’t put up with the bullying.   Bullies always blame their victims.

Response : Yes he walked….. Straight to his lawyers   see letter here letter from lawyer 16Jan

 

Note: Samuel did an interview in   Concrete Playground     these are extracts show how he started Muse on Allen    the reality is reflected in the fact that   he  transferred the share holding of shae holder accounts another  chef into his own name  and then  denied  Jozsef  any rights    .  The accounts  in 2014 show that there were two share holders in the accounts  although Samuel was  listed as the 100% share holder on the companies  office site .

Jozsef had $64,118   equity in the company  while  Samuel owed the company $6420     yet Samuel  went out a bought a 207 BMW SUV loaned against the company BMW

Remembering  this read the article below    and remember that Samuel is being acclaimed  as begin the youngest Chef in Wellington to OWN a restaurant .. He actually OWNS NOTHING  and OWES   it all to  Jozsef

The opening accounts  speak volumes    prizes fro those who spot the contributions by Samuel click to enlarge opeing accounts

This is the real secret to opening your very own  restaurant. its called other peoples money  .

In our professional opinion  it is  fraud when you get   a person to invest in a company   they are the majority share holder  and then you  move  all their shares into the name of a person who makes a living off the company .   At the same time   the  majority  share holder is excluded  and    is sued   for   the losses incurred by  the company.

to  put the icing on the cake  the losses  include the purchase of  a  2007 BMW which the person who has no share capital in the company but  who has claimed all the shares as his own, uses as his own .

Abuse of Companies act – Muse on Allen Limited- request for ministerial investigation

Open letter to  Craig Foss Minister of small business

Good Morning Minster

I am  approaching you in your capacity as  minster for small business and wish to bring to your attention a major flaw which I have identified in  the enforcement of the companies act with regards to small businesses.

We appear to have entered  a phase where economics  are  considered before justice  and  this  is distinctly in favour  of those who  breach the provisions of the companies act.

I am a licenced Private Investigator / Former long serving  police and  prosecuting sergeant .  Earlier this year  a young man approached  me  when  his lawyers advised him that after spending $50,000  with them  to seek justice it would take another $42,000  to  get the matter to trial and since it appeared that the company  was insolvent  there was no point in pursuing the matter .

In brief the circumstances are my client  Jozsef Gabor SZEKELY  and Samuel Raymond North are chefs, together they  purchased a  restaurant  for $90,000 they set up a company called Muse on Allen Limited and were 70/30   share holders .

Jozsef is an immigrant to New Zealand  . Samuels Father,  Malcolm North  is an Employment Broker for the ministry of  Social Development.  Malcolm  helped and supported the two boys in getting the business started   but it now appears that as far as Jozsef was concerned there as an ulterior motive, that was   to provide his son with a company financed by some one else.

Samuel gave the company key to his mother she used this  to  appointed herself as director and backdated this to the companies date of formation.

Samuel   reduced Jozsef’s shares  to 49% ,  then appointed his father as director, removed Jozsef and  finally transferring  all the shares into his own name. this was all done contrary to the act and without the injection of more share capital

This occurred in January 2013   less than  6 months after the company was formed.  Jozsef immediately went to see  lawyers .  It was correctly identified as fraud  but  could not get the police to take a complaint .

The lawyers took the matter to court under section 174  of the companies act   and  Jozsef  spent most of his time  earning money to pay the  lawyers.

Malcolm   represented the company in court and even  posed as though he was counsel  this   caused  Jozsef’s expenses with the lawyers to go out of hand .

The company would not  give Jozsef any of the documents which a shareholder is rightfully entitled to but they were released to  Jozsef’s lawyers under confidentiality  and   copies remain in  their office  and no duplicates have been released.

When the lawyers withdrew Jozsef approached me,  I attempted to get the registrar to correct  the  on line register  based on a set of accounts which we had obtained outside the discovery process.

The registrar   however would not act as they claimed that  redress was available through the courts .

I acted as a Mc Kenzie friend for Jozsef and  supported him in representing himself in court ,the matter was   to have  been set down for a formal proof hearing  but now   the company  has engaged counsel ( instructed by the   very directors who  have  breached the companies act  in so many ways )  and it is set for a three day trial in September  on the matter of   Jozsef being a disadvantaged shareholder.

In early June   we were advised  By Malcolm North  that the former lawyers for the company   have taken the company to  liquidation court and the company could    be wound up  before the hearing.

Jozsef has not only lost his $64,000  investment in the company but has paid $50,000  in an attempt to  have his rights enforced.

The  final straw came  when   the company sued  Jozsef on 19 June   in the district court  for the losses  which the directors  have incurred in the company since unlawfully  removing   Josef’s shareholding .

The whole purpose of a limited liability company is that    the   losses are limited to  that of the shareholders  equity  yet   Jozsef now finds himself burdened with a second set of court proceedings.

So we now have an ironic situation   where by   Josef’s shareholding has been removed from him  and he is  being  held responsible for losses in the company due to being a share holder

I have prepared   and  filed an extensive  complaint with the   registry integrity  , there are some 30  serious companies  act offences  which  the directors and their associates have committed.  Yet  in again a parallel move they are attempting to hold  Jozsef   for contempt of court  for allegedly  using the accounts  and the  documents which  have never been copied  or  been  outside his lawyers office  .

The entire process has been total bullying  and  abuse .

Those who invest in NZ companies  should not   be subjected  to  this lunacy, it destroys confidence in small business and shows that there is  a major flaw in the system which  allows  people to effectively steal shareholders  equity and use it for their own means.  The law is there  to  protect persons such as Jozsef and  ot should be affordable and expedient.

Samuel North   has  a deficit of  shareholders equity in the company yet drives around in a  late  model BMW  vehicle  owned by the company  while  the  only person to have invested in the company is being  hammered in the court

We request urgent intervention in this matter  where by the registrar   seeks to hold the  company and its directors  accountable to the act.

We need a system  which  prevents   this type of scenario from repeating .

In the interest of public  confidence in small business ,we hope that you can open a ministerial  enquiry into this matter  so that   this   cannot happen again.

I am happy to  supply the complaint to the  registrar and  the evidence  on your request .

Corruption in New Zealand – Open letter to the minister of Justice

amyadamsGood morning Minister

Last week I made submission to the select committee on the anti corruption and money laundering bill

I note that in the bill we do not define corruption

This makes our anti-corruption initiatives extremely effective as you cannot have something which is not defined.

As such the following are NOT examples of corruption in New Zealand

1. Having a business plan to amalgamate local government duties with those of central government for private pecuniary gain then writing the bill for and advising on legislation to facilitate this
2. Making an application for law enforcement powers under that legislation pretending to be a trust when no trust exists .
3. Deceiving a minister by making false claims so as to get the law enforcement approval
4. Getting law enforcement powers for a fictional body by pretending that it is a legal person when it is not.
5. Operating that Fictional law enforcement body from council premises using the staff vehicle and infrastructure for private pecuniary gain
6. Setting up a pretend trust in 2006 to pretend to be applicant and issuing court action to cover up
7. Deceiving the court through lawyers and denying the defendant a hearing or the right of defence of truth and honest opinion so as to re write history using a court judgement obtained through deceit

Through the journey I have found that we effectively try to Kill off Whistle-blowers , through stress financial hardship and making their life hell on every front as such a simple question of “ why does that law enforcement authority not exist as a legal person ?” has cost me my family , my marriage, nearly 10 years of my life well over $400,000 hard cash and goodness only knows how much in lost earnings.

I took on a lawyer who has since been found by the courts to have been “ incompetent “ he is now suing me because I complained of double billing. I made a complaint about a billing issue 4 years ago , it is still not resolved and instead the lawyer has taken me to court in a series of actions seeking to bankrupt me when he has overcharged me some $28,000.- message- don’t complain about your lawyers double billing – he will sue you and make your life hell .

I am a licenced Private investigator and former long serving police officer , I know a thing or two about fraud and corruption and I know that it is impossible to report fraud and corruption in New Zealand because it damages our clean green image.

I have found the greatest issue to be that lawyers are not held accountable to the rule of law, and crooked lawyers have a licence to use our legislation in the most convoluted manner to cover up fraud and corruption . The law society has conflicting roles of member society and lawyers authority , nothing is going to change until those conflicting roles are separated .

The so called public watchdogs, are under resourced and under staffed by competent personnel and we function be throwing up walls for people to bang their heads up against until they either drop dead or go away.

My matter is well researched, I have a ton of documents, from the government’s own files , No government authority has ever looked at them , they all claim it has been through court and it is therefore settled.

This proves that using the court to conceal fraud and corruption in new Zealand works and makes this even more serious.

I have even gone to the extent of filing a petition for a commission against corruption only to find that Mike Sabin, who was on the wrong side of the law himself , threw it out because my evidence disclosed fraud.

It appears that peoples reputations are paramount, that is their reputations not mine – My crime is to have exposed corruption and I have paid a very high price .
I request that you use my scenario as an investigation into corruption in New Zealand , it proves that it exists at every level and that we would sooner shoot the messenger than deal with the real issue.

Are you the minister who will turn corruption in NZ around ? I hope so for all our sakes
