Covid 19 Information under the Official Information Act

Good afternoon, Prime Minister and Minister of Health,

As much as anyone else in our country, I am deeply disturbed by the fear surrounding the Covid 19 virus outbreak.  With the speed that this virus seems to have taken over the planet, it must be very difficult, as a Country’s leader, to decide what steps to take next.

As a citizen, I feel there are many questions that we need answers to, therefore I ask under the Official Information Act whether you could please answer the following questions:

  1. What organisation or multi national organisation, is it that the government takes advice from in regard to locking down a country?  In this instance, is it the World Health Organisation?
  2. Auckland University tell us how the testing is undertaken as per their website  However, what I want to know is, what is the genetic sequence of Covid 19, and does the test, relate specifically to that sequence or are there also other diseases included in the test, which the test might identify, aside from the covid 19 sequence, which would give a positive result?  In layman’s terms, could the common cold or influenza test as positive for Covid 19?
  3. Auckland University also seem to rise the question of the accuracy of the kits, given that they could be contaminated as they are from overseas (China perhaps).  Could you please give us a reassurance, that these kits are not contaminated.
  4. Because, in other years, no country has ever tested for that exact covid 19 sequence, (presuming as above that only that one is being tested), how do scientists know that the sequence has not always been present in other diseases such as the common cold, influeza or pneumonia if it has never been seen or tested for before?

I further attach a link to the UK national statistics website, which doesn’t seem to indicate that there are significantly more deaths in the UK from Covid 19, but may perhaps show that deaths due to covid 19 are up, but that deaths due to say influenza and pneumonia are down.

It appears in the UK that Covid 19 cases are prevalent, however this also coincides with their flu season.  According to the UK stats website, deaths are not significantly up at all, as one would expect they would be with a virus outbreak of this magnitude?

Being of a curious nature, what I would like to know, and I am sure I do not speak for myself when I say I need reassurance that the test is an accurate test which tests only for the COVID 19 virus and that the test kits are not contaminated having come from overseas.  How do we know in the case of Marist, that the disease spreading is not simply the common cold or the flu?  Saying something is related, or could be related to Covid 19 (a disease never been seen or tested before October 2019), seems to me, to be extremely open to inaccuracy.

The Minister of Health, by all accounts, did not seem to be overly concerned about the Covid 19 virus, when he broke all the rules set down by your government in conjunction with the lock down.

I certainly do not profess to understand the virus that is overtaking the world, but I feel we need answers to these questions, so that we can better understand the virus that has the potential to destroy many New Zealand lives, businesses, means of living and well being.

Last but not least Prime Minister, I would like to know, if and when, 5G is going to roll out in New Zealand, so that we can be prepared for the transition of this seemingly dangerous technology.

I would be grateful if you could let me have this information as soon as possible, given the urgency that we were plunged into lock down.

“Process”, we all do it, whether we want to or not.  At this very moment, I am sitting up in my bed writing this post about “process”.  I am finding it very difficult to process because there is a very noisy neighbour using his hedge trimmer and it is drumming loudly in my ears and reverberating through my house.  My body processes the hedge trimmer.  I can hear it, and feel it and I feel stressed out by it.  It is upsetting my senses – my peace and tranquility which make up my right to enjoy life…apparently.

I have discovered about myself that upon receiving disturbing information, I generally take three days to process that information to a point where it affects my well being.  When someone advises me of a death, I will be nonchalant initially and seemingly unaffected by the news.  To some, I may appear shallow or uncaring.  It is my bodies way of preparing itself for what is to follow.  When I cut myself deeply, I do not bleed immediately, sometimes it can take up to a minute and in that time you can see into the cut, see the white flesh and the layers of skin and all the while your mind, and body, is preparing to mend itself.

The physical and the mental are as important as each other and they work along side each to ensure that the other is okay.  Mind and body are one.  Just as our body can be cut, instantly, the mind kicks into action, telling the body what it should do, this also works vice versa.  When the mind is damaged, sometimes by repeat process and sometimes by instant trauma, the body kicks in to help repair the mind.  Physical signs such as shock, the body releases adrenaline which helps the mind to focus.

Your body scars after the cut and so indeed does the mind.  The scar can be a painful reminder of an incident and the mind will retain the memory, thereby maybe protecting the body from repeating the same action again.  Warning the body, that it needs to be aware and more cautious of sharp objects in the future.  They are looking out for each other.  “Hey mind, I have your back”, “yeah bro body, I got yours too!”

And so the process begins with denial through to acceptance, in the case of grief it doesn’t really end, one, simply put, is required to deal and struggle with the acceptance.  The five stages of the grief process are said to be, denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance.  My denial lasts three days.  We get to know ourselves – our minds and our bodies and yet a lot of the time, we get stuck in a phase and we can’t move past it.  It is difficult and hard to bear, so we ignore it and deny it and so the healing process cannot continue.  If it were the body, perhaps it would be stuck in the scab stage and that scab would cling on and would not let go of the body for the new skin or scar tissue to evolve.  Yet when the wound does heal, you will notice that the scar tissue is not the same as normal skin, it is not as forgiving and does not stretch the same and so it is for the mind.  It does heal, but it is not the same.  If you were to cut yourself repeatedly in the same place, the wound would end up as a catastrophic mess and so too will your mind.

Drugs: Drugs can help mask the process.  They can dull the pain temporarily, however, we all know they do not treat the cause or the healing.  If you have shrapnel embedded under your skin, drugs will not remove it.  Clearly, surgery is needed to remove the problem.  Just as mental wound needs to be addressed.  The problem will not go away unless it is attended and dealt to.  Pain meds are likely to become ineffective as the body  begins to fight back against the alien within.  Pain meds come in many many different forms.  Alleviate and address the problem.  AA. – lets work together body and mind.  If it’s toxic – get rid of it

I have been through trauma many times in my life, as anyone my age probably would have been.  There are certain pressures that people just shouldn’t have to go through, and yet they do AND they come out the other side.  Scarred but in tact.  Writing is my release, it helps extremely, when my mind needs to move through a process.  We all need to find our release, and be brave enough to rip off the band aid and allow process.

There is not a great deal of happiness in life, which makes it so essential that you hold on to it while you can, treasure it and let it be the sanguineous crust (so much better than the word scab, when it truly is such miraculous healer) that transforms dead tissue into the new you.  Broken and scarred maybe, but whole, in a new way, all the same.  The body and the mind striving forward together, preparing itself for what comes next, ready for the next process that is life.  Accepting that you will be forever processing…

Some may live in hope.  I have learned not to.  Hope does not aid process.  When acceptance is always the healthy outcome, there you will find your happiness (which does not mean pure joy and does not mean you have a great big smiley face with tears flowing out of your eyes).  It is how it is today, my friend.  Please accept this day (not this rose), this day only and what it has to offer.  Process will do their thing (mind and body together) just go along with today’s ride and trust it is okay today.  You are a unique whole, each new day being it’s own book.  You can pick up and read yesterday’s book, but you can never re-live it, neither can you change the ending.  It has been written and published.  Tomorrow’s book is not yet written, so you can only write today’s.  You cannot read tomorrow’s book, can you?  Yesterday’s book is called “Depression” and tomorrow’s book will be called “Anxiety”.  What you title today’s book is up to you…



Epilogue: my neighbour is cutting hedges for my neighbours on either said of me, one has had recent bypass surgery, and the other was taken away in an ambulance two days ago and I still don’t know the outcome.  I will embrace the unpleasant noise because it is not about me.  I am lucky, I can hear…still.

My very core is “justice”

It is my essence.  The one thing that stuck with me throughout my childhood, wasn’t the fun I had with my bestie, although that is standout.  It wasn’t my parents divorcing, although that was life changing and traumatic.  It was the injustice I felt over Arthur Allan Thomas.  Even as a young girl, I did not believe he did it.

Funnily enough, when I was a victim of crime, and over a year later had to appear in court as a witness to that crime, I was moved from my room  beside the court room to a room further away from the Court room so I couldn’t hear what was being said in that court room.  In my room further away from the court room, there was a newspaper, about Arthur Allan Thomas and the affects his incarceration and conviction had had on his daughter Rochelle.  Rochelle was left, as a baby, in her cot, while her parents had been murdered and until the murder was discovered.  She was roughly the same as myself and maybe it was this, that gave me connection to this particular crime, but I don’t believe so.

When Arthur was pardoned in December 1979, I felt the injustice.  I really felt the injustice.  I was 9 years old.  Throughout my life, I always imagined how terrible it would be to be falsely accused.  It was like some bizarre premonition of an experience that I was bound to.  When someone has sworn in an affidavit, to an event that did not happen, and believed by the Courts, by judges and by lawyers including (for the child), I was right there in that place of false accusation.  It wasn’t murder, but it was perjury.  I was told by Police that perjury is right up there with murder.  Yet my guy wasn’t charged with perjury, he was charged with falsifying a document for pecuniary gain.  Perjury (lying to the court), it appears is too big for Police to handle, or the courts for that matter.

So Arthur Allan Thomas was pardoned because “a Royal Commission of Inquiry was established, headed by retired New South Wales Justice Robert Taylor. It declared Thomas to have been wrongfully charged and convicted and found that among other improprieties, police had planted a .22 rifle cartridge case in the garden of the house in which the murders were committed. The case was found four months and ten days after the area had already been subjected to one of the most intensive police searches ever undertaken. The cartridge case was said to have come from a rifle belonging to Thomas. However, the police tested only 64 rifles in an area where this weapon was common and found that two, including the one belonging to Thomas – could have fired the cartridge case found in the garden. That was the link to the deaths of the Crewes although it was later admitted that the case was “clean” and uncorroded when it was found. As such, the condition of the case was inconsistent with having lain in the garden, exposed to weather and dirt for more than four months.”, ..but there was

“No action against police officers”

The commission report said: “Mr Hutton and Mr [Len] Johnston planted the shell case… and they did so to manufacture evidence that Mr Thomas’ rifle had been used for the killings.” The Solicitor-General recommended against prosecuting the officers because of insufficient evidence. Both officers have since died.”  Death is convenient, isn’t it Grace Haden?

I know what it is like to have someone plant evidence, that person, Michael Downey, was not a police officer.  He was, in fact, a dirty low life lying, stealing criminal.  Yet he turned the entire legal system against me.  The deep dark journey that is perjury (in no uncertain terms), is hell itself.  It is so evil that there are not words enough to describe it.  A judge ruled I evaded service which was seen as despicable and that is how the court viewed me.  The truth was, a scum bag lied and that placed me in that illusion.  His delusion was seen as truth.  The beautiful truth is that Truth always shows up, sometimes however, it takes long.

When Police lie, that’s a whole new kettle… the gut wrenching thing for me, is I know it.  I have “shaken hands” with a certain Inspector whose “grip” I would liken to squeezing a mashed banana.  He treated me like a criminal.  My very essence is justice and obtaining justice for those who seek it.  I saw, with blinding vision, that if I were to become a Police officer,  my passion would be fulfilled…

Empathy (the ode kind)

I put on a different pair of shoes today

they were, heavily scuffed on the inside heal

I wanted to know how they would feel

they were too big, I was scared and didn’t know if I could be in them.

I walked around the bustling town…

Two sun kissed girls walked by me, whispering and laughing

The summer day was almost too hot to bear,

I wiped my brow, sweat stinging my unclear complexion

I dragged my feet, my head was down

I wished my Mum was still around

She loved me, no matter how I looked

Nobody else does

I am alone with no-one to care, sometimes they stare.

Do you know who I am?

If you only smiled, it would make my day

But I think I shall just fade away

Back in the cool of my old run down house

I slipped out of the shoes

I walked back into town.

I saw the guy who scuffed his heals, with a spotty face

and I smiled and said hello

that was ten years ago today

Did he pass away, or did he live another day?

Here is a word that may be on your lips, or it may be something you have never thought about.  Is “empathy” a chemical reaction, an emotion, or is it simply learned behaviour?  I’m not an expert, however I consider it to be a mix of all three. Let us start by looking at the word:


How often does the average person practice empathy?  I have perhaps answered my own question in the preceding sentence.  Let’s suppose that the ability to understand empathy is to practice it.

I have written extensively on New Zealand’s “justice” system and have come to a firm conclusion that this is perhaps the key to major change within it.  At the outset of proceedings against me, I was attacked and lied about by way of abusive litigation.  It was my understanding that litigation was a last resort.  However, I have witnessed that those utilising the family court system are not using it as a last resort, they are straight in just like Flynn.  Are lawyers advising alternative methods, other than litigation to resolve disputes or are disgruntled rich people using the Courts as a means of silence and a means to get what they want?

Put yourself in my shoes.  Picture this: I was at home with my then four year old son, making biscuits and cake for my other four children for when they came home from school, when there was a knock at my sliding door.  It was Mike Downey (criminal “document server”), who did actually serve the documents on me, on that occasion and WHAM my world changed. Brutal and insidious family court litigation attacked me!

There was no letter from the applicants lawyers suggesting resolve through mediation, there was no request whatsoever to see my son.  Litigation was the very first action.  The way I look at it, if I wanted to see a family member whom I had fallen out with, my first step would be a telephone call or a letter requesting to meet, from there I would wait a little, then I would try again.  By no means would I slanderously attack a person and expect resolve.  In short, in that regard the outcome was what they deserved.  Nothing!

Life has its way of dealing with bad decisions.  I have learned that the hard way.  The harsh reality is that I NEVER want to be involved with the New Zealand “Family” Court system ever again!  Until, it is an empathetic system which seeks “fairness” over legalities, it is never going to be a good or just system.  It is unfortunate that money, rather than common sense, rules New Zealand’s Family Court.    Perhaps we need to go to the outcome to determine the proceedings.  For example what is the desired outcome for both parties and work backward from there.  A simple explanation of how each party feels may provide a feeling of empathy, unless of course one party is sociopathic, and in  actual proven fact, does not have the ability to impart empathy.  Perhaps more than any other practice on the planet, we start by returning to the practice and every day teaching of empathy… just a thought.

I do not believe that Court is the institution for resolving “family” matters.  The court system is ludicrously expensive and is no way conducive to ordinary family life.

Vivienne Holm wants a practicing certificate – Really?

“Vivienne Holm seeks a new practicing certificate

vivienne-holmYesterday I was approached by Net safe , who on behalf of Vivienne Holm sought changes to  former  blog posts  because Vivienne after holding a practicing certificate for  the past 10 years suddenly cant get one because of  something that was written   many years ago . Vivienne   is seeking  changes to the blog.   We are happy to make corrections  but  there is nothing to correct .   we are interested however in  addressing   injustices  and  if she feels that the comment   is an injustice then she can assit in correcting a far greater injustice  before we  look at the perception she has of tiny little one .

More submissions

The following is my response to Net safe  ,  The fact that Vivienne  and Malcolm North who has been  harassing me,   both worked at the ministry of social development   is a fact that is not  lost on me .

….Thank you net safe 

The animal welfare Institute of New Zealand (AWINZ )  had law enforcement powers  which it obtained after  an application was made   to the then  minister  of agriculture on 22 November 1999 .

A blank trust deed  had been attached to the application made by Neil Edward wells a barrister .

In reality ,No trust existed  and  no entity existed but the government  gave  AWINZ wide sweeping law enforcement powers akin to those held by the RNZSPCA, which includes search and seizure and ability to  fine people .

Neil Wells who applied on behalf of AWINZ had written the   no 1 bill for the  new Animal welfare act  and had inserted the  sections to  facilitate the application he subsequently made   and  he  also advised on  the act  as “independent advisor” to the select committee without declaring his obvious conflict of interest of writing an act  to facilitate his own business plan

In March 2006  an  employee  of Waitakere city council   Lynne McDonald ( the bird lady ) approached me with the concern that she, a dog control officer,  was required to  “ volunteer “ her council paid time to AWINZ and prioritise animal welfare over   dog control . The building at  the council  had been   rebranded   and  Neil wells her council manager from 2005  was the only person operating AWINZ   for which he used a logo which was  identical to the new branding of the council building .

Maf at the time of an audit acknowledged that the two   entities appeared to  merge and it was difficult to see where  one   began and the other finished.  The council on the other  hand denied that AWINZ operated from their premises . This  was  in reality a massive public fraud  using   public office for private pecuniary gain.

To prove that AWINZ  did not exist  several of us incorporated the name Animal Welfare institute of New Zealand  .It is impossible to incorporate the  identical name of  an entity, we were successful  there by conclusively proving that  AWINZ  the law enforcement authority did not exist .

Vivienne Holm @ Vivienne Parr @ Vivienne Wright   Phoned me late at night and made threats  against my Private investigators licence  and there by my income and livelihood.  She demanded that we had to give up the name AWINZ  when intimidation did not work Her then husband  Nick wright then   took over the matter  as Vivienne at the time  was working as a law clerk .

I called at her address to discuss a resolution and was promptly served with a trespass notice.

Now it has always puzzled me   why a Law clerk was instructed , surely that is not usual  and  why was her   first port of call  be an intimidating phone call late on a Friday night .. I thought that  a legitmaley instructed   person would use more transparent means  rather than acting like a thug.

After her husband  , a resource management lawyer  , became involved Threats of legal action were made  and out of the blue a trust deed materialised.

I was to find that the trust deed  dated 1.3.2000   had been signed when the  then dog control manager at Waitakere city council, Tom Didovich  visited the   various people who thought they were trustees.

However  they never met  never passed a resolution and certainly were not involved in the application  for the  “ approved organisation’  under section 121 of the animal welfare act  ( which Neil wells had had such a massive part in ), the trust they  were allegedly involved in held no assets  and  after  three years the trustees who  still had not met  were not reappointed, hence this was a totally sham trust

Nick Wright took me to court for defamation ,  for saying that AWINZ was a sham trust, which it was  and has proved to be . The defamation was allegedly of Neil Wells  , I was denied the right  to a  statutory defence of truth and honest opinion and no finding has ever been made that I defamed Neil wells  but I had to pay  some $100,000 to him and his  lawyer  all   for  being a whistle-blower on serious corruption .

This  went on for  some 10 years  the object was to bankrupt me . Neil wells in an email to MAF in 2007    said that this was his objective , he certainly tried hard enough

Nick wright  who is reputedly the “Auckland lawyer who had “fallen on hard times”( has  ceased practicing   and Brookfields continued  their attack on me, I can only guess that if they had done the decent thing they  would have seen some notable  lawyers  struck off  for not checking the facts  before  filing matters in court and using their office contrary to the provisions of the Lawyers and conveyancers rules .

In the process of suing me they used dirty  tactics because  facts and evidence would not have won it for them . I have reason to believe that that  also worked  covertly on my marriage and ensured that  my 23 years marriage and my family was destroyed.   The lawyer who represented me was later found to be incompetent  and I  very much suspect he was working for the other side . So I lost ,  no way of winning when you have  a lawyer who the law society acknowledged as being incompetent and for whom judges had no respect .

All in all this created a massive miscarriage of justice   and one which I physically paid out well  over $300,000  for and   find it impossible to quantify the lost   hours of work, health    stress etc.

Brookfields, on  behalf of whom Vivienne Wright at the time,(previously Vivienne  Parr   now Vivienne Holm)  , took instructions from the fictional AWINZ  tried to liquidate my company and succeeded    until I found out that they  had  filed a false affidavit of service  and the whole thing was reversed.

So now 10 years  down the track and after having held  many  practicing certificates Vivienne  wants a different type of practicing certificate   because she is going to work  for Paul Cavanagh  who   retired exactly a year ago  .

Vivienne “ believes “   that she   already had her application in .  I am sure that she did not.( this is based on my concurrent records  )

I believe that  my post is   totally accurate  and that the fact  of   the date of her application for a  practicing certificate is   just a teensy weensy  bit  trivial compared to the  years of suffering which I and my family  have had to endure.

The good news is that I am happy to  work with  any one  who helps put things right . When the AWINZ matter has been addressed  and is history I can take down all the posts  but while the injustice   exists it requires exposure  of the fact  and   the facts will remain in the public realm

I cannot understand why she claims that  she   cannot get a practicing certificate on this occasion   , the  email you sent is dated 19 September 2016    and states that she  has held a practicing certificate  from April 2015 to the present .

Practicing certificates  renew at the end of June ,  The law society have just informed me that she does not currently hold a  practicing certificate, her last one expired 25 November  2016, it appears that that is the date when she left the MSD

My internet search reveals that  Paul Cavanagh QC  retired a year ago .

It would appear that Vivienne Holm  now wants to work in public practice again , as such she will  become an officer of the high court   and according to section 4 of the  Lawyers and conveyancers act will  have an  obligation to uphold the rule of law and to facilitate the administration of justice in New Zealand:

She may  wish to  help address the  AWINZ injustice ,  once that  has been sorted I can look at removing / altering  blogs .

I do find it amusing perhaps coincidental perhaps not , that  she was  employed by MSD   until 25 November where Malcolm North  who has been harassing me, by email   also works.

But getting back to Vivienne    I am happy to   remove  anything minor when  a greater injustice has been resolved, she only needs to contact me  and help me    right the wrongs  of the past  that she was instrumental in in  kicking off .      A person with integrity   would  see  that an as officer of the court  Vivienne  would  have an overriding obligation  to  justice  and if she cannot how integrity in   putting the past right  then she should not be asking me  to change factual information .

In the interest of transparency  I will be publishing this on

I do believe in Justice, I do, I do

We have laws for a reason, do we not?  Legal documents are written up they way they are to protect parties from deceit and wrongdoing.  Or so I thought anyway.

I had an agreement for sale and purchase on my house and there was a clause written into which read:


This clause is added to protect the purchaser.  I am happy for this report to carried out, I know my house has no major issues, and no problems with leaks, the roof is all good.  It is insulated in the ceiling and under the floor.  It has some minor issues, just like every house does.  So I’m all good for “a Registered Master Builder, Building Certifier or other qualified specialist” to inspect my house.  As it turns out, the clause is also there to protect the vendor.  I expect the specialist report will look something like this (click link below).

Click to access TPI%20Sampe%20Report.pdf

Instead this is the report from the “specialist” that I discover has been accepted by the prospective purchasers:


…and all this is as an itemised account of what the so called “specialist” thinks inside his mental brain.  He has undertaken no investigation, he has not gone underneath my house and inspected the foundations, but he has estimated $5-$10K for remedy, he has guessed that the laundry floor has water damage, because the lino is lifted.  In fact I had the laundry/toilet floor replaced with ply board, after my cylinder collapsed a couple of years back.  He states the “particle board” has water damage.  Well hello, guess work is unacceptable for a building report…a proper one that is!  He says my roller sliding door has expired (whatever that is)!  I presume he is talking about my garage door… and dah it has not expired.  It is all in working order, I don’t have it plugged it though, perhaps that is what he means.

On we go… he says my cladding “wood composite perviese (I don’t know what that word is) to moisture problems with product claims lodged in past”  Can anyone tell me if fibro planking has issues.  I googled it and I can’t find any.  All I can find is that at one time prior to 1981, it contained asbestos.  But my house was built in 1988 so my fibro doesn’t contain asbestos and I have never had moisture problems with my fibro either.  Thank you Chris Baker for your wise words of wisdom.  You amaze me – well and truly.

“light fittings require attention”.  Yes I had agreed with the prospective purchasers to remedy this.

Although Chris Baker, did not investigate issues, which he should have perhaps investigated before reporting on them, he did indeed take it upon himself to investigate my hot water cylinder.  He took it apart in order to check out the state of the element!  I never, at any time, gave him permission to do this!  His advice was the “element was corroded and would need replacing”.  You will note in the example report, that a building inspection is only “visual”, it does not include dismantling the house owners fixed appliances!

What is fact (not fiction like his report), is that before I installed a 25,000 litre water tank, I was going through elements every 8 months.  This particular element has been in there for over 3 years (and includes when I was still on town supply), so could be due for replacement.

…and while on the electrical issue, what do I even say about him quoting $3,500 for power to the garage?  Our local qualified electrican, estimated $500 with the trench dug (by my boys).  Does it cost $3,000 to dig a trench 5m long and 350 deep?  I don’t know??  You tell me!

Chris Baker, your report is a load of utter nonsense!  I hope you never do this to anyone again.  I will just leave it in the hands of Licensed Building Practitioners Board.  Your clients stand by you and you have convinced them thoroughly, so with that, you will have to live.  I have written to you twice, seeking evidence of your qualifications, both in building and electrical, I am still waiting…

The costs he has mentioned here amount to approximately $16,500 and that does not include the issues, he has left wide open like the laundry floor, and the roller sliding door (which doesn’t need repair at all).  Would you be happy with this?  Would you be jumping for joy because you lost your sale at the hands of this “specialist builder”, who guestimates what he concocts in his head?  I’m not.  I think he knows that now.

All and all, I am appalled by this completely unprofessional report on my property!  I simply cannot fathom, that the prospective purchasers had so little disregard for my integrity and believed the advice of a cowboy!  Which in my opinion, is exactly and literally what he is and exactly why a specialist report is obtained.

My advice to anyone selling their property, is be home when the “specialist” calls.  Check out his credentials (in this case it is crudentials) and ascertain that your purchasers are not employing some cowboy/story teller, and that they adhere to the signed agreement.  I did not agree to let any old person, who says he is a specialist/builder, into my home and pull it apart.

PS I have checked with LBP and Master Builders, and he is not either.  Neither is he registered as an electrician…what is he?  You decide!

I believe in justice.  In my opinion, having someone, such as Chris Baker of Bakersfield Ltd, act so unprofessionally, irrationally and destructively is not justice, it’s nothing like it and it most certainly is not what I signed up for.

Any contractor entering someone else’s home, needs to show a little more respect than this!  It is my home and I have lived there for nine years.  I know it better than any would be, if he could be super builder!

How do we stop this violence?

New Zealand has become a country of one violent offence after another, after another!  The question on my lips, is what is being done about it and how are we going to stop it?  Take a look at the young thug in the below articles!

He is a violent abuser and I am picking this is not the first time he has assaulted someone is this manner, prior to being arrested in this matter.  Do these people think that it is okay, that they can afflict serious harm on other people including women, (weak bastard) and get away with it.  From where I am sitting that is exactly what they think, and there is no disincentive not to bash someone, if they so feel like it!

Now here is one thing I understand, perhaps they were bought up in a violent environment and they are merely acting out on what they have seen.  The message needs to go out there that it is absolutely UNACCEPTABLE to behave in this manner.  Now I have voiced my opinion of some Judges in this country on a number of occasions, so I have no qualms in stating once again that their behaviour is so too, UNACCEPTABLESome Judges need their bloody heads read!  Money and prestige should never never never be regarded over and above the law.  It makes me wonder just what sort of club or organisations these Judges are involved in when it comes to making calls such as in these articles.

In the above cases, the victims are taking the matter to a higher level!  Well how absolutely ludicrous is that?!  They shouldn’t need to!

We all need to band together and let these violent scum bags and Judges (who are behaving just as cowardly and stupidly) know that we are not going to tolerate this disgusting behaviour and that they CANNOT and WILL NOT get away with it.  What the heck is wrong with our justice system?  Well for starters:

  1. we need to know that the Police will act;
  2. it needs to be identified whether the violent offender has acted alone or whether they are part of some bigger syndicate of dickheads;
  3. if they are involved in some bigger syndicate of dickheads, they need to be put away separately to them or remanded in custody, so that they cannot continue to threaten with the backing of their cowardly pussies.
  4. we need an efficient and knowledgeable prosecution team;
  5. and last but not least we need competent Judges, not merely lawyers with black gowns on who have been elected there by members of the old  boys club!

I am currently witnessing the birth of a gang who are nothing but a cowardly bunch of youths who are causing havoc and are behaving violently everywhere they go and who are continuing to get away with the behaviour!  They need calling out and the matter needs dealing with.  Do we have measures and systems in place to deal with these antisocial, cowardly little assailants who think they are tough, so tough they smash girls?  I certainly hope so, because if I have anything to do with it they are not getting away with it!  Will I go to the Police time after time, Yip I will!  Will I publish their names, so even when they are done with the Courts, they can be searched on the internet and found out for what they have done, by future employers, girlfriends or whoever.  Yip I’ll do that!  I’ve done it before and I will do it again!  Ask Mike Downey!

The childhood glow within, exists, remains;

Dancing, singing, running free;

energy, potential bubbling and brimming;

The young seasons into spring;

She unites, increases;

Years cascade and bubbles fade, the flute draws empty;

Autumn battles arise out from the dark, the Queen is ready;

War is fierce, she stands rock edge steady;

Flaming back arrows knock her to the ground;

Determination and Truth lift her back upon her feet ;

She roars to the East and purrs with the West

Balanced and poised, she treads with precision.

Take her or leave her, her true fire is never dimming.

Minister of Justice & Courts Endorses Crime!

Honestly, I really couldn’t be anymore disappointed or let down by our Government who have thrown New Zealand citizens to the wolves (literally)!  Anyone in the legal professional knows, very well, how difficult it is to get a perjury ruling on an affidavit!  It is actually dam near impossible!  When I put to the Court that I was nowhere near where Mike Downey (Legal Document Server) of Auckland/Dargaville (wherever) swore to serving me, the Judge said “the documents can be served by registered post”.  Our legal system is so far up the shoot it isn’t funny.  Court document service is how a person is informed there is proceedings against them, yet it is left wide open for CRIMINALS to be in the position of this VITAL role.  Thank you Minister, I can see how you have “justice and “our courts” all under control.  The Minister’s reply to my open letter is attached.  It’s sickening… Downey (criminal extraodinaire) carry on with your good work in legal document “service” you are endorsed by the Minister!

Open Letter to Minister of Justice & Courts: Mike Downey – Back in Business

18 May 2016

Dear Minister, Honourable Amy Adams

As you may remember, I have written to you and the former Minister, Chester Borrows on numerous occasions regarding document service and the complete lack of protection that New Zealanders have, at law, in this regard.  As a New Zealand citizen who has been severely affected by non service, I remain deeply concerned that there has been no change in legislation in respect to the laws (or should I say, lack of laws, because there are none) surrounding document service, in particular, Court document service.

I believe you will also be aware, due to my notifying you on multiple occasions, that Mike Downey (a criminal with approx 30 dishonesty related convictions) was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment because he lied in two respective false affidavits that he served me with documents when he did not.  As you know very well, Court document service is how a person is informed that Court proceedings have been issued against them.  It is law that an application must be personally served.

I attach a PDF flyer Flyer 1 that Mike Downey is distributing, which strongly suggests that he is attempting to drum up business in document service!  His 25 years experience in document service belies him!  I also attach an email dated 13 May 2016 which Downey has sent out to “potential clients” (although I will not publish that on this website to protect the recipients).

Minister, Downey went to prison, because he is a liar (a perjurer) and did not serve.  There are no laws preventing him from “serving” Court (or any) documents and innocent people are going to continue to be conned and have crime committed against them because our legislators are not doing their job!  I have said it before, and I will say it again – New Zealand needs laws regulating document servers, especially in regard to Court documentation!  Criminals in this role is criminal and absolutely unacceptable!  If it is submissions you require, I am more than happy to assist with that.

Thank you, for your attention to this matter.

Yours faithfully

Translegal Services NZ Ltd t/a Translegal

Or is that “TRANSLEGAL t/a TRANSLEGAL SERVICES NZ LIMITED???  Seems to me to there is some sort of identity crisis within that Company ??

Well it appears Translegal have taken their letter of apology to Verisure Investigations off their website.  It doesn’t alter the fact that that Company did not effect service on them and did not serve me either, but had their respective contractor/s (Tony Parker and Mike Downey) lie and swear that they did in respective affidavits.  So I’ll just pop the apology letter on my website.  I am still awaiting an apology for Translegal’s transgressions in the case of their lying, repeatedly dishonest, CRIMINAL  “Legal Document Server”, Mike Downey, who swore not one, but two false affidavits that he served me, when of course, he did not!  He was convicted and sentenced to 12 months imprisonment in the Dargaville District Court for this crime.  Be sure your sins will not just disappear Translegal!

Move on and put it all behind…

This outcome is all that I hoped for:

minute 27 May 2015However, John Robertson director of Hauraki Gulf Law Ltd, received no penalty for adducing false evidence to Court and condoning and utilising crime!  In my view, misleading the court is perverting justice.

Cost is not an issue to the Court, but what about the hour upon hour I spent working on my court documentation in my plight to prove to the Court that the applicants, their “deponents” namely Michael Downey, contractor to Translegal Services NZ Ltd and others, were complete liars (perjurers) and the type of people who did/do not care about the consequences of committing such crimes in Court.  Prison, where Downey currently resides, is the only outcome for him – although the lawyers and the applicants are also just as guilty as him.  There is no Judgment, so all the corruption which happened through court process and was submitted to the Court by the lawyers at Hauraki Gulf Law, is hidden from view.  That is how it works folks.

Cost is immeasurable in my mind.  The stress, anxiety and trauma that blatant perjury caused me, do not have a price tag!  So thank you Mr Robertson (or should I say Dr), you are a “good” lawyer!  You have shown me you know just how to get away with crime inside a system which also allows and condones it.  I believe this is “How to get away with Murder”.  It certainly makes me wonder just how many people have been killed by the stress that lawyers, who act like Robertson,  have caused them!  I will never forget how my health suffered as a result of the trauma that was inflicted on me by John Robertson and his team.  Again, well done John!

To my knowledge, Court have not held the lawyer/s accountable, and the New Zealand Law Society only act in its members interests.  All in a days work…

Two years, eight months and twenty seven days after initial court proceedings were issued against me, I see the outcome that I desired.  I should count myself lucky – that I am not bound by some Court Order thats very nature was nothing but ridiculous and preposterous from the outset!  It intended to remove my right to parent as so described in section 5b of COCA.

In the realm of legal beagles I have seen those who utilise the law for what it is intended and I applaud them for adhering to values. Thank you Julie and thank you Judge Davis.  I have also seen those who are blinded by a false sense of “law” and whom are won over by absolute deceit, spewed out by lawyers who are the worst actors I have ever seen!  Who am I to judge a judge and who is a judge to award costs against and judge me?

Out in the real world, the rules of nature prevail.  In a family/civil court room, I have observed that the rules are abnormal, outdated and twisted.  What applies to one, does not apply to all.  I was hammered, the lawyers were believed, I followed the rules, the lawyers for the other party, continually abused and broke the rules because they knew just how to get away it!  Tricks and treachery – all part of the job!

At the end of the day, the outcome is all that I knew and held to be just.  How I arrived at this place, was the greatest learning curve of my life.

“JUSTICE” I believe it is worth fighting for… the cost, the jury is still out on that…

Overriding Duty of an “officer of the Court” is to the Court

New Zealand Law Society president Chris Moore says that a lawyer’s overriding duty is to the court.  I quote:  “There is a fundamental expectation in our justice system that lawyers will take the utmost care to never put incorrect information before the courts,”

This quote taken from this article.

The above quote from Chris Moore appears to be so, only sometimes… other times, it seems, it doesn’t matter if the Court is mislead and lied to, including when a lawyer (John Robertson) utilises (and adduces to Court) two separate false affidavits of “service” and conveys to the Court, firstly, that the first false (perjured) affidavit is true (email evidence provides the date and time are confirmed by that law firm) and then changes the times, dates and circumstances of “service” of the first false affidavit in a second false affidavit, adds its own hearsay evidence and then proceeds to convince the Court that that second false (perjured) affidavit is also the truth.

Oh well, I suppose the NZLS can pick and choose what lawyers it decides to single out for punishment.  But hey – that lawyer then only needs to hand in his/her practicing certificate and it is all over Grover – no punishment is needed!  It is good enough, apparently, that that lawyer will no longer continue to practice… unless they should join with another law firm… in which case that lawyer, that has been struck off/or has struck himself/herself off, can continue to practice….

see below again… Fictitious Law Firms… round in circles we go, getting very dizzy!

New Zealand Law Society holding it’s members accountable… or NOT!  Meet Evgeny Orlov, director of Equity Law Barristers Ltd.  Can New Zealand lawyers now simply strike themselves off the law register to avoid punishment?  It appears so.  Lawyers can get away with anything… because they are lawyers.  The Justice Minister doesn’t seem to recognise that there is a problem with a disciplinary body being the same as the membership body which acts in lawyer’s interests!

Do lawyers really simply escape punishment by striking themselves off the law register?

Why, yes they do, Dah! Orlov see also:

Open Letter to Translegal Services NZ Ltd

Rochelle Butt


2 May 2015

The Director – Gary Swan

Translegal Services NZ Ltd

P O Box 434

Shortland Street



Non Service of Court Documentation and Perjury

I am writing with concern as to the practices of your firm. I consider it highly unethical practice to contract your Court document service out to criminals. I would dearly like to know why you do not undertake Police checks on your contractors?

As you will be aware, Mike Downey, who contracted to your firm, was imprisoned in December last, for swearing he served me on two separate false times and two separate false dates, in two separate false affidavits dated 31 January 2013 (sort of) and 18 March 2013, respectively.

I note on your website, that you have written a letter of apology to Grace Haden of Verisure Investigations because your firm also did not serve her, but co-incidentally, another of your contractors, Tony Parker, also swore an affidavit that he did. Consequently, Ms Haden’s company was placed into liquidation.  It appears Translegal have taken their letter of apology down.  Here it is to view.  Translegal – Letter of Apology.

I would be greatly relieved to hear that you have altered your practices to include Police checks on your contractors/Court (“document servers”), so that no other person has to go through the stress and anxiety that I have been through because of non service and false affidavits (perjury). If you have children Gary, I wonder how you would feel if someone attempted to place your child under guardianship of the Court, and you had no idea there were proceedings in action? It is unacceptable to have people like Mike Downey (criminal with 30 previous convictions prior to this case), employed to “serve” important documentation

People such as yourself, and companies (Translegal Services NZ Ltd), such as that you are director of, need to be seen to be professional and to have taken a duty of care to the persons whom are being served. Contracting your “document service” out to criminals is unacceptable, in my view!

I too, should like an apology from your firm and posted on your website. I am absolutely appalled that I have not already received one, given the previous convictions of Mike Downey. I know, if I had “accidentally” employed a criminal such as Downey, and he committed crimes against innocent parties, the first thing I would do, would be send out an apology to the victim. The fact that you did not, speaks volumes, doesn’t it? Evidently, you are not sorry, that you employed a criminal to not serve documentation, and whom swore that he did, in not one, but two false affidavits and who devastated my life for over 18 months!

As a former Police officer, you should be seen to have impeccable ethics. I certainly would not trust Translegal Services NZ Ltd, or yourself with service of a pea! I am left wondering how many other people there are out there who have not been served by your firm, but who could not prove it…

You will note I have also copied this letter to the Minister of Justice and Courts, as I am lobbying government to have laws pertaining to document service changed, so that people of the likes of Downey cannot be employed/contracted by firms as the likes of Translegal Services NZ Ltd.

Yours sincerely

Rochelle Butt

Open Letter to the Minister of Justice re “The Rule of Law”/Service of Court Documents

Rochelle Butt


3 April 2015

Minister of Justice



Dear Minister of Justice – The Honourable Amy Adams

Thank you for your letter dated 19 March last.  Letter from Minister of Justice and Courts 19 March 2015.  I have further questions on a number of issues as follows:

The New Zealand Law Society

  1. You advised that the NZLS is governed by the Lawyers and Conveyancers Act 2006 which is administered by the Ministry of Justice, how can it be then that the regulatory body and the representative body of this society, is one and the same thing?
  2. I have made four separate complaints in regards to certain lawyers who have not been held accountable to the rule of law according to the Rules for Lawyers, Chapters 2 and 13 by the NZLS.  If lawyers adduce false evidence to the Court, knowing it to be false, this is in breech of the Rules for Lawyers, chapters 2 and 13.  I have two NZLS decisions dated 1 October 2013 and a further decision dated 29 January 2015 and I can quite plainly tell you that the lawyer involved has not been held to account for the breech.  I have  the NZLS file numbers should you require them.
  3. A criminal calling himself a “document server” by the name of Mike Downey, is currently serving his prison sentence for his crime of not serving documents, but swearing he did via affidavit on two separate and false dates and false times.  It was however, the lawyers who adduced and condoned the false evidence to Court!  Lawyers are not allowed to adduce false evidence.  This is a crime, and IS – perverting justice.  The two affidavits were in conflict with each other.  Further, there was an email,, which shows that the lawyers had checked and confirmed, the first false date and time of service.  How can this evidence continue to be overlooked?
  4. I have no faith in a Society which regulates and acts in its members interests!  As the person responsible for administering this Society, it is my suggestion that the Minister and government needs to address the conflicting obligations of the NZLS.
  5. Please could you advise me on the meaning of the “Rule of Law”.

Service of Documentation (in particular Court documentation)

  1. A known criminal, such as Mike Downey, should never be allowed to be in a position whereby he is allowed to serve, important documentation.  He, together with aid from the lawyers involved, corrupted the entire Court process!  The lawyers were believed by the Judge, and I was not.
  2. Please can you amend the current legislation so that CRIMINALS cannot be in a position to serve, important and sometimes very serious, documentation.  My child was literally minutes away (because of the lawyer’s dirty tricks) from being made a ward of the state perhaps because this criminal was too lazy, couldn’t be bothered or was paid to not serve the documentation.  This is criminal in itself!
  3. Non service of Court documentation can have very dire consequences for a respondent/defendant!  It is after all, a very very easy way to win a Court proceedings if the respondent does not even know Court proceedings exists.  It is far too easy for criminals to get away with non service.  The only reason Mike Downey didn’t, was because I had indisputable evidence I was not at the address he swore he served me.  This is NOT good enough.  New Zealanders need protection from the likes of criminals such as Downey.

I thank you for your consideration and look forward to hearing from you.

Yours sincerely

Rochelle Butt

“The Rule of Law”

Interesting… it seems other countries are also struggling with the concept!  What even is the “Rule of Law”?   Perhaps we should ask Haurki Gulf Law, or the New Zealand Law Society???  Quite clearly, it is not something lawyers here in New Zealand need to abide by…

Rule of LawRolag_reportonquestionnaireJul09

This is my favourite paragraph because this is exactly what I want to know too.

paragraphLife is funny sometimes, the very next day after posting about the “Rule of Law”, I get my reply from the Minister of Justice, who, funnily enough, quotes the “Rule of Law” to me.  Here we go around the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush, the mulberry bush… See below.

Letter from Minister of Justice and Courts 19 March 2015

Downey behind barsCheers Mike Downey!
