I have been released from jail (9/12/17) for breaching a dodgy suppression order by naming 2 TV stars in the Tim Worner / Amber Harrison sex, drug and fraud scandal at Seven West Media.
Obviously I would have preferred not to go to jail but I have no regrets as I took a stand after more than a dozen non-publication orders and suppression orders had been issued against myself and this website during SLAPP lawsuits on behalf of Kerry Stokes and his associated companies and staff over the last 4 years. The same type of corrupt lawsuits that Kerry Stokes is running against others as well in his attempt to undermine free speech.
Going to jail has a negative impact on your life as you have to close down most aspects of your life outside of jail but there have been some positives as well but I will expand on that more in a post in the next few days.
I have filed an appeal regarding my conviction (Justice Ian Harrison) and I have another conviction (Justice Helen Wilson) and a retaliatory police charge to deal with as well. Justice Wilson has flagged that I am looking at more jail time but that will be at least 2 months away as it is set for a mention on February 7, 2018. Justice Wilson has set bail conditions which mean I cannot say much. Once again I will write more on the matters in a few days as I am due in court for the police charge on Tuesday (12/12/17).
I am also in court on Monday (11/12/17) as Kerry Stokes and Seven West Media are still chasing me. I note that Seven West Media and Kerry Stokes have also started contempt proceedings against Amber Harrison.
During the last 4 months I have been in jail SWM’s share price has dropped from 85 cents to 62 cents and they reported a loss of $745 million. It’s not hard to work out why when senior management and directors at the company spend most of their time harassing the staff, using drugs, committing fraud with shareholders money and running legal battles against journalists, bloggers and Twitter users trying to conceal what they are doing.
This is just a quick post to let you know I am fine. I did have to resign my job and lost my rental unit so I do have to spend some time getting set up again. Hopefully I will get settled in the next few days and be back to normal as far as running the website in concerned. As someone suggested on Twitter I’m “recharged and ready to rock and roll“. The people chasing me have made a lot of mistakes and left themselves exposed and I expect next year to be a good one for myself and the supporters of this website.
Thank you to the people who supported me on social media while I was in jail as you did make a difference. Free speech in Australia is very much under attack by the wealthy and the courts and if they can get away with putting me behind bars who’s next?
I have stopped the GoFundMe campaign I set up a few days before I was jailed and thank you to all the people who supported it.
Being jailed has cost me a lot financially and I need to raise some funds for legal expenses as Legal Aid will cover some things but not everything and I need to spend some money on IT costs etc so please read below and support.
