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?
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.
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.
