    The judge at the heart of a Law Society tribunal case this week has another antagonist tugging at his robe.
    Barrister Evgeny Orlov went on trial in Auckland this week for comments he has made about Justice Rhys Harrison for handing over a child to a known paedophile and alleged slights against foreign born New Zealanders.

    Last week legal blogger Vince Siemer filed two affidavits with the Supreme Court in support of applications to appeal separate rulings Harrison J made on allegedly non-existent applications, with the Judge also accused of creating false grounds.

    Each ruling states in bold heading “The application to review the Registrar’s decision is dismissed.” Mr Siemer’s affidavits declare he never made these applications and that Harrison J also made up the grounds summarised as support for the “dismissed” applications. He adds the faulty premise for the orders is self-evident.

    Harrison’s rulings ordered the Registry not to accept further documents from Mr Siemer in either appeal unless he pays $11,760 in security to the Court of Appeal by 30 August.

    Both judgments were issued on 22 August 2013, and purport to confirm decisions the registrar made on security for costs on 29 July and 9 August in relation to appeals Siemer filed back in February 2013.

    The Supreme Court is under no obligation to consider the matter.

    Mr Siemer is brief in his evidence that it was not legally possible for the judge to dismiss applications he never made in order to prevent his appeals. It is suggested Harrison J’s orders shutting the registry have a more dubious intent, with Siemer claiming applications for incidental orders he made in April have never been addressed – and now cannot be as a result of Harrison’s prohibition on filing of documents.

    Harrison J has been caught out manufacturing court events before. In a 2007 child abduction case, Harrison J ordered costs against lawyers Frank Deliu and Evgeny Orlov in favour of the Crown. When the lawyers claimed the judge acted without jurisdiction in ordering costs without an application, Harrison retrospectively sought an application from Crown counsel in an attempt to conceal his improper actions. That order was later overturned on appeal.

      NZ's Corrupt judiciary spawns angry society - and rough justice .....

      The lying solicitor is threatening to apply for a writ of sale over our house. He will have to apply to the High Court and hopefully we will get a chance to challenge it. I intend to bring up his lies at every opportunity in court. I will mention Wetherall's lies in every sentence until someone listens. The Law Society weren't interested so I will just have to get his LIES into the public arena in Greymouth as best I can. I also intend to challenge the validity of the judgment given the fact that the judge completely ignored our documented evidence. I will even accuse him of out and out corruption if necessary. I figure I have nothing left to lose.

      I have it on good authority (ex-police) that more and more New Zealanders are turning to gangs in search of justice due to this systematic corruption.
      As we can not rely on this country's Bill of Rights (i.e. LAW) to be upheld by our corrupt judges and lawyers, who can blame them from doing this ?

      One must wonder if this "lying solicitor" had a red hot poker jammed up his arse if he would still apply for a writ of sale !

      Two questions: is it relevant to the dispute that led to him seekinging a writ of sale, and if so how are you going to prove your accusation?

      I have proof, written documented proof, but the Law Society said he had made a "mistake" (over and over again???) and they have "cautioned" him to be more careful in future. And here is another example of him lying in court documents. I finally got (via the Official Information Act) copies of an application he filed for a distress warrant, and the vehicles he lists bear absolutely no resemblance to any vehicles we have EVER had. We have never owned a Nissan Mistral, a blue truck worth $10,000 (our blue truck was sold about 5 years ago for $2,500) a caravan worth $8,000, also sold years ago for $6,000), a 1970 Ford Falcon worth $10,000, (I had a 1967 Falcon which I sold about 12-13 years ago for $5,000). His main problem I think is not so much deliberate lying, but sheer stupidity and carelessness in relying on what his client tells him and laziness in not checking the Motor Vehicle Register, which would have shown him she was, as usual, talking through her arse!!!!

      P.S. I listed our house for sale myself, so at least we will have SOME control. But the real estate market on the West Coast has been in the doldrums for the past 5 years or more.
