Christian Porter will be charged with rape in the not too distant future by an experienced legal team that has been assembled to institute a private prosecution. The legal team was announced today as “Experienced criminal barrister Mark Higgins will be the lead prosecutor. Vania Holt, assisted by Eric Zhang, will be the solicitors and former senior sex crimes detective Susan Campbell will be our investigator”.
The team has been assembled by Victor Kline who is a barrister and leader of the new political party The New Liberals. Mr Kline first announced that he intended to go after Porter in court when he put the below message on Twitter on Sunday (27/6/21):
From a previous Tweet I saw, it looks like Mr Kline and the others are doing the private prosecution pro bono (free of charge) and they are not raising any money for it.
In private prosecutions, the Director of Public Prosecutions can do one of three things:
- They can do nothing and let the private prosecution take its course.
- They can legally take over the case and prosecute it themselves.
- They can legally take over the case and withdraw the charge.
Given the matter will be instituted in NSW and given there is a Liberal Party Premier in NSW there will be pressure for the NSW Director of Public Prosecutions to take over the case and withdraw the charge. But if they did that there will be an uproar by many voters especially after the NSW Police deliberately put the go slow routine on Katharine Thornton’s complaint against Porter and did what they could to sweep it under the carpet.
Victor Kline’s private prosection will draw some criticism but given no one else was planning on doing much he should at least be supported in trying and if he can get it to court in any shape or form that itself would be a victory.
I do not support any political party but I do try and give new political parties a mention when appropriate and Mr Kline spends a fair bit of time pushing his party on Twitter at @victorklineTNL and he published a video on Twitter as per below:

The private prosecution against Porter is only starting but I will keep a close eye on it and see where it ends up.
Private prosecutions are the way forward
I instituted 2 contempt proceedings in 2019, one against Capilano Honey and one against Kerry Stokes but they were both summarily dismissed by Justice Clifton Hoeben who lied and said I needed leave of the court to file them. He said I would have to file a separate summons, which was another lie, and it would also be a private prosecution if I do it in the future. (Click here to read more)
Private prosecutions are what the public needs to start doing against dodgy politicians and I have thought about it many times over the years and if Victor Kline can get the ball rolling against Porter then a new weapon against corrupt and criminal politicians is not far away.
Imagine if other MP’s such as Angus Taylor, Barnaby Joyce and Bridget McKenzie etc. were hit with private prosecutions. They would have heart attacks and it would help really shine the light on government corruption.
Porter v ABC hearing on the 9th of July – Update – Suppression orders and an attempt to have documents removed from the court file
The ABC was going to sit on the sideline and not put any arguments forward for the hearing on the 9th of July where Christian Porter wants various documents removed from the court file. But Porter’s lawyers have attempted to rewrite the truth which has forced the ABC to make submissions, which I read today, to correct Porter’s lies.
I wrote about Porter’s lies in his submissions a few days ago where I published my submissions (Click here to read more) and I also came to the conclusion that Porter’s lawyers were trying to abuse the system. But that will come to a head next week. I will be attending the hearing on the 9th by video link and I believe it will be broadcast live on the internet.
