Top secret police report says Mafia bribed NSW judges $2.2m. Some corrupt judges named

The Mafia bribed NSW judges $2.2m a top secret police report alleges, Fairfax Media (The SMH and The Age) reported last night (6/7/15). The secret police report was not leaked to Fairfax Media for no reason and there will be a lot of people in the NSW legal fraternity having heart attacks as they know the game is up.

The timing of the leak is perfect for this website and my complaint about corrupt NSW judges to the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC).

The Fairfax Media report titled “$2.2m in Mafia bribes to NSW judges alleged in top-secret police reports” says:

“An Australian Mafia boss allegedly paid $2.2 million in bribes to NSW judges to get lighter jail sentences, top-secret police intelligence reports reveal.”

and: “One report described how NSW police gathered information in 2003 that Mafia figures in Griffith – the group’s traditional stronghold – had been “receiving information from a person connected to the police in Griffith and the court”.”

“It is alleged that a Sydney based IOC [Italian Organised Crime] member received light sentences in the past because he paid off [Sydney] judges, costing approximately $2.2 million.” (Click here to read more)

One judge has apparently since retired but there are others who are still judges who also took the bribes off the mafia.

There is possibly more on tonight’s Four Corners program titled “The Mafia in Australia: Blood Ties” – part 2 as they have worked with Fairfax Media on the story. But I have not watched it yet.

If the judges take bribes off the Mafia who else do they take bribes from?

Given the Mafia can bribe judges to the tune of $2.2 million then anyone with deep pockets can bribe judges.

My ICAC complaint regarding judicial corruption

I made a complaint regarding judicial corruption to ICAC a while ago. I wrote an article about it but two weeks ago former ICAC investigator and corrupt judge Justice Stephen Campbell made me take it down on the instructions of Kerry Stokes and his son Ryan Stokes. I received the below letter from ICAC and have had further communication with them since.

ICAC - Shane Dowling letter

The chances of ICAC having public hearings regarding my compliant of judicial corruption have just increased about 1000% I suspect. If they don’t they are going to be looking extremely corrupt themselves.

Since April last year when Kerry Stokes first instituted defamation proceedings against me I have named numerous corrupt judges in the Supreme Court of NSW with the evidence. I have been made to take down numerous posts that exposed the corruption as they have tried to cover their tracks but some still are on this site such as:

“Money talks at the Supreme Court of NSW. Billionaire Kerry Stokes boy Justice Hall scandalises the court (Click here to read) and The man who defended the dingo and got the mafia off murder: Confessed corrupt judge Michael Adams” (Click here to read) and “Kerry Stokes’ attack on free speech” (Click here to read)

Some of the corrupt judges I have had first-hand experience with and have evidence of their corruption and have previously named on this website are Supreme Court of NSW judges:

Justice Ian Harrison, Justice Lucy McCallum, Justice Peter Hall, Justice Michael Adams, Acting Justice Henric Nicholas (now retired), Justice Clifton Hoeben, Acting Justice Robert Hulme, Justice David Davies, Justice Peter Garling, Justice Stephen Campbell and Chief Justice Tom Bathurst. I wonder if any of them (or how many) shared in the Mafia’s $2.2 Million judicial bribe.

Every NSW judge will be suspected of being guilty of taking bribes until there is an inquiry

Chief Justice Tom Bathurst

I have phoned Chief Justice Tom Bathurst’s office quite a few times and sent him numerous emails regarding judicial corruption and he just ignores it. I can state for a fact that he is a major league crook and until he is gone corruption will flourish in NSW courts.

Until there is an open and public inquiry every judge in NSW will be under suspicion. One would expect every honest judge to make a public statement demanding a public inquiry to clear their good names. If no honest judges come forward and demand an inquiry then the more reason one is needed.

Sunday’s post on this website

While my post on Sunday (5/7/15) titled Former ICAC investigator Justice Stephen Campbell caught acting corruptly” (Click here to read) was not as popular with regular readers as some other posts I am sure it would have rattled at least a few people in power. They would not have liked the fact they this website is starting to dig very deep into the corruption network.

Given this website’s major focus is judicial corruption and its associated matters this story was always going to be reported by this site. It goes a long way to confirm the allegations of wide spread judicial corruption that myself and others have been making for years.

Premier Mike Baird is going to come under extreme pressure to have an inquiry into the judicial corruption and if he doesn’t it will be a clear cover-up. Or maybe he will refer it to ICAC. One thing is for sure is that the Mafia/judicial bribery story is a real game changer and things are just starting to heat up.

Crime and corruption in many places rely on judicial corruption to survive and/or flourish. If you attack and minimise judicial corruption it will have a huge impact reducing corruption everywhere.

    There seems to have been an awful lot of secret high level reports. Upon being read by senior officers the reports have been put in the mafia/organised crime file with all the other mafia/organised reports from years gone by.Were these various reports placed in the hands of the state and federal police and justices ministers?If so why have they not been acted upon?
    It would appear that the scale of the M/OC activity is quite apparent to all concerned but nothing is being done except to keep on watching and listening and writing more reports.I can understand why the NSW police commissioners were not doing anything because they were to busy spying on each other !!
    Maybe we should hand over the investigation to the ABC and Fairfax because police and politicians seem to want to take the Nelsonian approach to the whole business.

    This from personal experience in NSW years back. A Barrister now deceased by the name of Don Geddes, who later became Labor Mayor of Newcastle until the government had to step in and sack the entire corrupt council and appoint a manager, would get you off any charge for the right price. He was blatantly open about it checking which judge would hear your case and telling you how much you needed to pay him to dismiss it. I never paid him myself but my best mate at the time handed over the cash on more than one occasion to get off.

      There has been plenty of bribery going on the NSW legal system for years:

      Rex Frederick Jackson was NSW Minister for Corrective Services from October 1981 to October 1983 and took bribes to let prisoners out early and was imprisoned for conspiracy. He only ever faced the one charge but let many prisoners out early.

      The District Court found that Jackson accepted a bribe of A$12,000 in 1983 and that he conspired to organise the early release of three prisoners from Broken Hill Correctional Centre to meet gambling debts.

      He was initially sentenced to serve seven and a half years in custody (with three years without parole). However, in 1988 The Crown appealed to the Court of Criminal Appeal against the leniency of the sentence. Jackson was subsequently sent to prison for ten years, with a non-parole period of five years, serving time at Berrima Correctional Centre. More at:

    The Supreme Court judges have no credibility, but I doubt that ICAC will do much about it. As to Margaret Cunneen’s case, ICAC held an internal hearing within 5 weeks (I think). I wonder how they are going to act now.

    How about the county and supreme courts in Victoria . They are not clean either . Conflict of interest I can prove since my husband is serving time due to barrister and judges corruption . Something needs to be done . If u have plenty of money u get away with murder if u have nothing u can’t defend yourself properly so u end up in prison

    I am going to request a Senate inquiry into this $2.2 million bribery. Shane, I just would like to know whether senators are required to respond to such requests from their electorate.

    • Shane Dowling July 8, 2015 at 6:01 pm #

      They should respond to all mail. Give it a go and see what happens.

      The suspected murder and disappearance of the body of Don Mackay, a Griffith business owner and member of the Liberal Party of Australia. The suspected murder and disappearance of the body of King Cross newspaper editor Juanita Neilsen …… of many.

    Mafia bribes go all the way to the top. They bribed the Liberal Party to stop one of their crooks from being deported. Amanda Vanstone was the one involved when she took over the position of Minister for immigration fro Phillip Ruddock. Ruddock had previously upheld the decision to deport the Mafia member which Vanstone overturned. The only difference here was the $10,000 bribe was in the form of a donation to the Liberal Party.
