Chief Justice Tom Bathurst

Chief Justice Tom Bathurst behind judicial paedophile and bribery cover-up evidence shows

Court evidence filed by NSW Police has the witness statement of NSW Supreme Court registrar Chris D’Aeth which shows Chief Justice Tom Bathurst has conspired with others since September 2016 trying to jail journalist Shane Dowling for making judicial paedophile and bribery allegations against 16 judges , including Bathurst, in an article he published in September 2016. The article is titled “Paedophile priest gets 3 months jail for raping 3 boys by NSW Supreme Court’s Justice Hoeben” and also part of the police’s brief of evidence. (Click here to read more)

It was not until over 9 months later in June 2017 that Shane Dowling was charged by NSW police for an email sent to the judges giving them an opportunity to respond to the allegations before he published the article. The email is part of the article.

The brief of evidence tendered to the court has the below witness statement of Chris D’Aeth and at paragraph 10 he talks about Chief Justice Bathurst’s involvement and the subsequent referral to the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions in September 2016. As Tom Bathurst is the Chief Justice it would have been his decision to refer the matter to the CDPP.

Based on the statement of Chris D’Aeth, and what I know, the CDPP decided to take no action except to refer it to the Federal Police who also decided to take no action. It is only after 2 further complaints to the NSW Police (February then either May or June 2017) did they take action.

The NSW police were trying to prosecute the matter but given it is a federal offence that potentially has a jail term over 12 months the Magistrate took it out of the police’s hands and said the CDPP has to prosecute the matter. The police didn’t seem to be happy about them losing control but I was.

The allegations have gone unchallenged by any of the judges named by Mr Dowling in the article but Registrar Rebel Kenna did ultimately make a retaliatory complaint which led to the police charge.

What is very disturbing is that while Chief Justice Tom Bathurst was secretly trying to have Shane Dowling jailed Mr Dowling was jailed for 4 months by Chief Justice Tom Bathurst’s Supreme Court in an unrelated freedom of speech matter.

The judge who jailed Mr Dowling, Justice Ian Harrison who is also named in the email and article, said at the hearing in February 2017 that Mr Dowling wouldn’t be going to jail but when he sentenced Mr Dowling in August 2017 he gave Mr Dowling 4 months jail. Did Chief Justice Tom Bathurst intervene?

Perceived bias

Whether Tom Bathurst intervened is not something that needs to be proved to determine perceived bias and did Mr Dowling get a fair hearing and would Mr Dowling ever get a fair hearing in the future in the NSW Supreme Court given Chief Justice Tom Bathurst’s continued attempts to have Mr Dowling jailed

The court shouldn’t be dealing with any matters involving Shane Dowling (me) anymore and certainly shouldn’t be sending Mr Dowling to jail.

Paedophile judges

There is no doubt there is a bribery racket in the NSW courts and a paedophile ring/protection racket. In the last few weeks alone Sydney magistrate Graeme Curran has been charged with historic child sex offences (Click here to read more) and District Court Judge John North gave a paedophile a suspended sentence and protected him by suppressing his name. (Click here to read more) Justice North needs to be sacked then fully investigated.

Kerry Stokes’ involvement

Seven West Media’s lawyers have been working overtime trying to get access to the police evidence. One has to assume that Seven’s owner Kerry Stokes is worried there is evidence in the police file that he is involved in the judicial bribery and/or paedophile ring as I have written numerous articles accusing him of judicial bribery which he has never denied.


The police and CDPP have failed twice to file and serve a full brief of evidence and things such as other witness statements, interview transcript and the emails referred to above at paragraph 13 etc are still missing. The CDPP now have until January 16, 2018 to file all their evidence and the matter is set down for hearing on the 28th March 2018.

When the matter was in court on the 12th December 2017 the CDPP wanted a 6 week adjournment to “consider the charge”. The magistrate said no. I think they are working in with the Supreme Court and up to some dirty tricks. They should do the right thing and withdraw the charge.

I have no doubt that the reason the CDPP and Federal Police never took action in 2016 is because they had legal advice that I had not breached any laws which makes it hard for them to follow through now.

  1. SD, its great to see you back and in fine form. Based on my understanding of the Hierarchy of the NSW Judiciary, all roads lead to the NSW Attorney General, Mr Mark Speakman.

    As previously mentioned, I am embroiled in an Estate Dispute, and the NSW Department of Justice is going to extreme lengths to protect it own and the Solicitors involved, one of which has been negligent, which is likely to extend to two.

    The NSW Courts all form part of the NSW Department of Justice and while Mr Andrew Cappie-Woods is the Secretary, Mr Mark Speakman
    is solely responsible for the overall administration of that Department.

    I agree that you are in safer hands with the CDPP, than the States DPP. I think that Paedophilia is still very active in NSW an your attempts to expose is starting to receive some acknowledgement.

    It seems that certain individuals are getting extremly light sentences where others are receiving sentences for crimes far less. Notwithstanding, there is a Peadophile case in Dubbo, that
    Mr Speakman can and should intervene, but is not. Mr Folley,
    NSW opposition leader has requested Mr Speakman review this
    case. The excuses presented in the case are deplorable.

    Lastly, I have also been making some enquiries around what protections are available to people that must attend court, but do not want their case heard by a decision maker that is known a Paedophile or engages in taking bribes or elicit drugs.

    I one of the determinations, they questioned your mental stability, family status, etc!! Do we not have the same right to request that the determinationing Office, whether a Judge, Magistrate, Registrar, Tribubal Member, is not a criminal and is of sound mind and free of elicit drugs???

  2. Welcome back to the grind, Shane. While we mightn`t be as litigious a country as the U.S.A., you would think any of the persons named above would be straight onto their lawyer to sue for defamation. Unless, of course, the statements are true and they don`t want to go to Court.


    Shane, remember this?

    Up here in Queensland neither the judiciary, the police nor the media will lay a glove on him. He has written stuff that makes yours look like kindergarten contributions that earns you a questionable stint in jail, yet he is apparently Teflon coated. Why? Read George Parker and Had Enough, comments.

    The perception, now gathering considerable strength is that the Judiciary is so corrupted, that even its traditional standing of respect has been eroded. That tradition built on FEAR , is now being tested by social media, where the black letter of law is losing ground to common-sense.

    What we fail to recognise is that be you a governor of your State or Country, be you a Prime Minister or a member of the High Court, you are no more than your intellect and the role of common-sense has always rested with those who seek truth, honesty and transparency …and are not in the business of being the recipient of reward.

    Given the decision making of the Judiciary and the Governance, of recent times we must seriously start looking for pest exterminators to deal with the white ants that are threatening the viability of a once proud Nation.

    Perhaps that will only come about once those who serve realise that they are not our masters but just servants.

    Shane, please wear your period in incarceration as a badge of honour …with the emphasis being on HONOUR.

  4. How blatently hypocritical are government ministers, lawyers and judges when they write, speak, profess and operate under the heading of their undying loyalty to Democratic Australia, yet knowingly are completely corrupt and no power above them to wipe out the corruption.
    Democracy must be built through open societies that share information., because when there is information, there is enlightenment, when there is debate, there are solutions.
    When there is no sharing of power, no rule of law, no accountability, there is abuse, corruption, subjugation and indignation.
    Are there any steps within the ‘law’ that can be used to eradicate the poison of corruption.

  5. I despair at the absolute corruption on every level in the country of my birth…and the human species in general.

    • The only way left is for us the publicize the corruption we know about from first hand experience and from observation. Just as Shane has done and continues to do. Be aware that few people will take us seriously at first. However, with time, the bringing together of enough people of the right calibre may bring about something like the recent Royal Commission into Institutional Child Sexual Abuse. This was former PM Julia Gillard’s initiative and was triggered by Peter Fox, a courageous Hunter Valley policeman and Joanne McCarthy, a journalist from the same area. If three similar forces converge (apparently spontaneously) we may yet see legal reform.
      We already have the journalist (Shane).

      • Good on you mate,maybe a rally to show support from the public who don’t have a voice.

  6. Hi SD,

    I read the latest CASELAW last night. Are you able to provide a high level summary of what matters are still before the courts?

    After you were placed in custody, there was a great deal of confusion amongst your followers regarding your jailing and the other cases still in play.

    The Registrar would not provide any information and the Court listings were not accurate.



  7. Why hasn’t some one in Canberra made better use of the tax payer money & made Bathurst held accountable to treason? Why is there no Royal Commission into all the named Judges in the so called “Family”?
