I posted a story on this site in relation to Kerry Stokes’s current legal problems on the 23rd May 2011 titled “Kerry Stokes, Seven Group Chairman and Australia’s number one perjurer, has been charged with contempt of court”. (Click here to read) Yesterday, Thursday the 26th of May I received a threatening letter from Kerry Stokes’s lawyer, Justine Munsie – Addisons Lawyers. I received the letter when I arrived home at 9pm and it was under my door. (See letter below)
The letter raises two key issues. Issue one is that I said Kerry Stokes “has been charged” and the second issue is they claim I suggest that Kerry Stokes “has been charged and found guilty of perjury”.
Issue one is clearly a smokescreen to conceal the real issue, which is issue two. A quick internet search will reveal that almost every media organisation in the country has said that Mr Stokes has been charged with contempt of court or to that effect.
So why has Kerry Stokes had his lawyers send me a letter complaining about it and not the other media organisations? (If his lawyers have sent a letter to the other media organisations they have not taken it down from their sites). The only reason he raises it in his letter is to conceal the only real reason for his letter which is he wants me to take down the references to him being a perjurer.
Well as I have previously stated on this site: “In a court of law any inference that can be reasonably drawn from the primary facts has to be taken at its highest. (See the decision of J Gyles in Choundary v Capital Airport  FCA 1755 at 3 and 23).” See page 24 in my book “Love Letters from the Bar Table”.
And given that as stated in my previous article that Justice Ronald Sackville said Mr Stokes had given “deliberately false evidence” and “Mr Stokes evidence on this issue was not only implausible but, I must conclude, deliberately false,” Justice Sackville said etc.
It is clearly fair and reasonable to conclude that Mr Stokes is a perjurer until proven otherwise.
What must be said is that the letter from Mr Stokes lawyer, Justine Munsie, could and would be regarded as an attempt to conceal a serious indictable offence which is a crime in itself. The lawyer is trying to hide Mr Stokes perjury.
