    Sign this Petition: Ministry of Justice to be investigated for corruption!

    There are a number petitions at onlinepetitions that deal with justice issues. You can either sign one or start your own. The one below is from a facebook page...

    The NZ Ministry of Justice have struck a deal and jumped in to bed with the New Zealand Law Society. The New Zealand Law Society, a private society and not part of government, is now exempt from legal prosecution for breaking the law in relation to how the Society deals with our complaints about lawyers.

    This new pact between the Ministry of Justice and the NZ Law Society entitles the NZLS to dismiss valid complaints irrespective of how corrupt the lawyer is and the NZ Law Society completely protected, thanks to the Ministry of Justice, from any criminal or civil liability, in other words, we the public don't have a legal leg to stand on.

    The Ministry of Justice has also been caught red handed financially back handing the New Zealand Law Society when a member of the public manages to get a NZ Law Society decision overturned. This petition is to request an immediate Public inquiry against the Ministry of Justice and the New Zealand Law Society. We have power in numbers so please sign and support this petition.

    I agree with your stated position and add further that the legal review office is also a joke, adjudicators are not legally qualified and will simply rubber stamp decisions made by the NZ Law Society.

    Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?

    The New Zealand Government is concerned with nothing that does not generate revenue. A public sponsered organisation, some one to govern the government is precisely what NZ needs.

    Or, we can have several private law societies and create competition among law societies.

    I don't think the public, clients of lawyers are well protected in New Zealand by giving exclusive privilege of providing legal services to the law society (and its members, associates) while protecting it from public scrutiny.

    The public needs to discuss about how the lawyers and law societies are to be governed in New Zealand.

    It is the corrupt Judges who must be attacked and the Justice Minister and Crown Executive who knowingly and willingly turn a blind eye to, or rely on, those corrupt Judges. The Judges, not the Ministry of Justice, are the ones who directly protect (when they want to) the Law Society, its Members and the LCRO. Corrupt ex-LAWYERS protecting corrupt LAWYERS. If the other Judges with integrity had the 'guts' to speak-up or to do something we would not have a problem.

    Apart from everyone signing this petition the honest Judges, Lawyers and Q.C.'s should be encouraged to 'speak-up' and be supported by us. They will only 'speak-up' when they see the public has had enough or when the Judges and Crown Executives corruption is about to be fully exposed to the public. Until then, they are terrified of the ramifications of acting alone against this systemic corruption problem. They have seen what has happened to the few in the legal profession and judiciary who have spoken-up for the public.

    Our efforts should be aimed at continuing to expose the Judges and Crown Executive corruption to the public. At some point we will eventually convince, my wider public exposure, those in power and with authority to act. Those with power and authority must, of course, exclude the Attorney-General, Christopher Finlayson, who is said to lead the pack of Judges involved in corruption. In fact, he is said to deliberately nominate to Parliament those LAWYERS with corruption tendencies to the Bench, whether that be for the advantage of the Crown or to the NZ publics detriment in relation to their rights under the NZ Bill of Rights Act.

    Oops, on corruption of judges and others you forgot; the Justice Minister relies on Transparency International reports, which she quotes regularly and which has just been released for 2013, that report NZ is perceived to be the least corrupt country in the world. According to the Minister, Judith Collins, perception is reality and therefore there is absolutely no corruption within our justice system participants, particularly Judges. So statutory bodies, like the Ministry of Justice, NZ Law Society and Judicial Conduct Commissioner, do not need to (and should not) look for it and if it is allegedly found by some mere member of the public they must be mad and blocked at all cost from ruining our world wide reputation by such vexatious accusations.

    If you disagree with the Minister's logic - contact her directly or at least tell me how I'm wrong in what I say.

Quote from Integrity Plus 2013 New Zealand National Integrity System Assessment report released today by Transparency International New Zealand.

    We must be all wrong. Transparency International stated it interviewed the Chief Justice, the President of the Law Society and the Head of the Bar Association to enable it to come to that conclusion. Nothing but integrity within that group, so we can trust them in what they say about our justice system - not!!!!!!!

    The woman who lists herself as "Director" of the local TI chapter (Suzanne Snively) is promoting herself in as "Executive Chair" of a non-existent company in New Zealand ("Transparency International New Zealand Limited"). SEE ATTACHED. The fictitious company Ms Snively purports to head is very similar in name to the local chapter of TI and is clearly an attempt to further her personal business through a deception.

    Ms Snively is a contractor to the New Zealand government."



    The above is part of a recent email sent to the Governance Officer, Governance Unit, Transparency International, Berlin, Germany from Kiwifirst (www.kiwifirst.co.nz) questioning the governance and lack of independence of the NZ chapter of Transparency International.

    As Transparency International in NZ is 90% funded by the New Zealand government and is mostly run by government contractors, its stated policy is:

    "The over-arching principles that the Society must comply with are: the Society will not be involved in investigating or exposing individual cases [of corruption]."

    And you wonder why they found no hint of corruption in the Executive part of Government and the Judiciary!!!!

    This morning the Police advised that a complaint to the Serious Fraud Office about alleged corruption by Senior Crown Executives has been referred to the Police, and is being investigated by Detective Inspector Karyn Malthus.

    Does anyone know what she is like?
