The gifts included cash, and lavish overseas holidays for George and his family. SFO Director, Julie Read welcomed the guilty plea...

  • Government more corrupt under National

    Government more corrupt under National

    Dealings with Saudi sheep farmers, Hollywood, and Judith Collins' relationship with Chinese company Oravida are likely to have played a part in making the country look more corrupt, with New Zealand dropping down anti-corruption scales. That's what an ethics professor's saying after Transparency International's Corruption Perceptions Index for 2016 ranked New Zealand as the fourth least corrupt country in the world - our worst ranking since 1998. Associate Professor Tim Dare said it's because th...

  • Crooked Judge Knighted

    Crooked Judge Knighted

    Sir Terence Arnold’s past conduct would likely preclude his ability to become a judge in any other law-abiding country, let alone be awarded a knighthood for his services to justice in New Zealand. Sir Terence is generally known in the NZ legal community to have engaged in criminal activity as Solicitor General serious enough that it could have landed him in prison had the matter gone to trial. Rob Moodie, the lawyer representing Margaret and Keith Berryman in a long-r...

  • Mandatory drug testing for judges and lawyers ?

    Mandatory drug testing for judges and lawyers ?

    After several high profile drug cases involving members of the New Zealand Police and the legal profession, the New Zealand Justice Forum today called for the mandatory drug testing of all officers of the Court.

  • "Stasi" Law Society exposed

    "Stasi" Law Society exposed

    Omens of threat to an ordered society, perceived or real, can provoke the most sensible citizens to willingly forfeit their freedoms. After 9-11, Americans paradoxically clamoured for new laws which limited their right to assembly and freedom from search and surveillance. To those who protested, the suspicion mounted over what they had to hide. Few things give more power to an autocracy than a war against a vague threat, and the gullibility of the masses escapes notice of few prone to a...

  • Police stranglehold on justice

    Police stranglehold on justice

    Seven years ago, a drunk driver ploughed into a car containing sisters Sania and Danielle King. Seven-year-old Sania was killed; Danielle, 9, survived.It is hardly surprising that the girls' grieving parents, Neville and Veena King, have been protective of Danielle ever since. So when she came home this year with injuries allegedly sustained at the hands of police, it cut deep. The Hamilton family claim Danielle, now 16, was "thrown around like a rag doll" by officers trying to break up an o...

    Web publisher alleges judges abuses repeat history

    No one believed at the time it was happening, but it became evident that hundreds of New Zealanders had been denied their rights of appeal when, in 2002, the Privy Council determined in Taito v Queen, the New Zealand Court of Appeal had engaged in systemic abuses of due process. Fa’Afete Taito was first named appellant (of many) in that defining appeal. In 2011, in the landmark Supreme Court decision Chapman v Attorney General, another one of those affected appellants lost any consequent right ...

    Opposition parties are calling on Prime Minister John Key to dump John Banks as a minister despite police deciding not to take any action against the MP over donations to his mayoral campaign.

The donations were listed as anonymous. Dotcom claimed he discussed the ...

  • New Zealand a critical link in the 'supply chain' for corruption

    Irish private investigators have been in New Zealand chasing €455 million (NZ$700 million) that Ireland's once-richest man is reputed to have hidden in the South Pacific. Irish courts have found tycoon Sean Quinn, his son Sean Junior and nephew Peter conspired to put €455 million out of reach, rather than repay the now nationalised Anglo Irish Bank. The bank had to be propped up in when the Irish economy collapsed in 2008. Quinn owed €2.8 billion on property investments but got a large c...
