I have reported below chronologically so that the reader can see how it has been from when I purchased the holiday camp to the present day.

 

Persecuted hundreds of sub-postmasters -  Click here

The British Post Office wrongly prosecuted hundreds of sub-postmasters due to the faulty Horizon software between 1999 and 2015, causing many to lose their jobs, businesses, and homes and ruin them financially. Click here to watch the Australian Channel 7 television trailer for ‘Mr Bates vs the Post Office’which went to air in Australia in February 2024. The latest update on this story is on the following YouTube: → https://youtu.be/MyhjuR5g1Mc.

Likewise, the COT Cases, who ran telephone-dependent businesses in Australia, were also victims of government negligence and suffered financial losses. The Telstra Corporation, which was government-owned then, failed to settle its claims during the arbitration mediation and independent assessment process from 1994 to 2006. The COT Cases campaigned for justice, but only five of the twenty-one claims received the justice promised by the government that endorsed their arbitrations An Injustice to the remaining 16 Australian citizens. The similarities between the COT Cases and the British Post  Office scandal are striking, and reading both stories together is a testament to the devastating impact of government negligence on innocent peopleMr Bates vs The Post Office-Absent Justice.

Both stories expose systemic corruption in government-owned organizations. When the story broke in 1993, Telstra was wholly owned by the Australian government. During twenty-one arbitration and mediation processes between 1994 and 1997, the government still owned Telstra when its public servants embarked on a national campaign to conceal from its citizens that there were more than 120,000 Casualties of Telstra type- of customer complaints being hidden when the John Howard government began privatizing Telstra. In simple terms, the shareholders involved in Telstra's privatization were not told the truth about the true condition of the Telstra network.

The actions of the Australian government's communication regulator towards Telstra customers are alarming. The regulator was willing to jeopardize the lives of over 120,000 individual customers while keeping vital information hidden from those affected. This has led to significant financial losses for many businesses and incorrect billing for telephone calls passing through Telstra's Ericsson-installed telephone exchanges. The Ericsson equipment has known faults that cause software billing problems, similar to the scandal with Britain's Post Office and their Fujitsu equipment. It is unacceptable that such problems were concealed and not addressed.

The US Department of Justice has accused Ericsson of bribery and corruption. Ericsson is the same company whose telecommunication equipment was under investigation by the COT arbitrator. As for bribery in the case against Telstra, Senate Evidence File No 21 Senate Hansard dated 27 Feb 1998 re kick-backs and bribes shows Telstra paid kickbacks and bribes to several Australian politicians and government bureaucrats. 

It is imperative to underscore the Ericsson link above as part of an ongoing effort to secure an impartial investigation by the Australian government regarding my claims against Telstra. Specifically, the government is requested to investigate whether it was appropriate for Ericsson to have procured Lane Telecommunications Pty Ltd during the period in which Lane was serving as the officially appointed arbitration technical consultant assigned to the COT arbitrator, whose task it was to determine the value of the COT cases' claims against Telstra.

It is alarming to discover that a company under investigation can acquire a witness in Australia, as with Lane Telecommunications. This situation raises serious concerns about the fairness and impartiality of the arbitration process. The COT Cases spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on technical consultant fees to prepare their arbitration submissions, which they provided to Lane Telecommunications and DMR Canada. They believed that their ongoing Ericsson telephone faults were affecting the viability of their businesses. Yet, Lane and DMR only found 'old historic' phone faults that had previously impacted the COT Cases businesses.

To make matters worse, Ericsson inherited all of the technical information via Lane once Lane was purchased for a bargain. This means that the COT Cases were victimized twice: first by Telstra, who denied the systemic problems in their network, and second by Ericsson, who hijacked their legitimate claims. This is unacceptable, and the government must immediately ensure this kind of injustice never happens again. The integrity of the arbitration process must be protected, and businesses and individuals must be able to trust that justice will be served fairly and impartially.

Therefore, it is strongly advised that the Australian government take this matter seriously and ensure justice is served.

Several people who saw the first episode of Mr Bates vs the Post Office, which was released last on 17 February 2024, have made comments describing what happened to the British Post Office sub-contractors as having experienced hell on earth and how we assist them in receiving the compensation that has still not been rightly received.

Blowing the whistle 

Absent Justice - Hon Malcolm Fraser

While in the midst of my arbitration case against the Telstra Corporation, I stumbled upon a freedom of information release by Telstra. The release disclosed that Telstra had documented and redacted my phone conversations with former Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Fraser see page 12 → Australian Federal Police Investigation File No/1. During those phone conversations, I expressed my concerns that Australia was providing wheat to China in 1967 despite being aware that China was redirecting it to North Vietnam. I'm curious to know how the interception of my telephone conversations during the arbitration proceedings in 1993 and 1994 with Malcolm Fraser is related to my exposure to the government on 18 September 1967 that Australia was trading with the enemy. 

What intrigues me is the reason behind documenting a seemingly harmless conversation about Australia's wheat selling to China while being aware that China was supplying wheat to North Vietnam during a conflict with Australia, New Zealand and the United States. I am confident there must be a significant motive behind this, and I am determined to uncover it.

It's difficult to fathom the extent of harm inflicted on the young Australian, New Zealand, and United States service members by North Vietnam soldiers who were fueled by the wheat supplied to them by their communist Chinese supporters. Sadly, many of these brave service people lost their lives or were left with permanent injuries.

1.     In September of 1967, I brought to the attention of the Australian government that a portion of the wheat allocated to the People's Republic of China on humanitarian grounds was being redirected to North Vietnam during the Vietnam War Chapter 7- Vietnam - Vietcong

2.    Who else in the Australian government was aware that Australian wheat intended for a starving communist China was being redirected to North Vietnam to feed the North Vietnamese soldiers before those soldiers marched into the jungles of North Vietnam to kill and maim Australian, New Zealand, and United States of America troops? Refer to Footnote 82 to 85 FOOD AND TRADE IN LATE MAOIST CHINA, 1960-1978, prepared by Tianxiao Zhu, who even reports the name of our ship, the Hopepeak and how the seaman feared for our lives if we were forced to return to China with another cargo of Australian wheat. This wheat was being redeployed to North Vietnam during the period when Australia, New Zealand, and the United States of America fought the Vietnam Cong in the jungles of North Vietnam.   

3.   During the 1960s, the Australian Liberal-Country Party Government engaged in misleading conduct regarding trade with Communist China despite being cognizant that Australian merchant seamen had vehemently refused to transport Australian wheat to China. The grounds for such an objection were their apprehension that the wheat would be redirected to North Vietnam during the North Vietnam War between Australia, New Zealandand the United States of America. The underlying inquiry is to ascertain the government's rationale for deliberately deceiving the general public and jeopardising the country's troops whose lives were being lost in the conflict in North Vietnam.  Murdered for Mao: The killings China 'forgot'

4.    Why didn't Australia's Trade Minister, John McEwen, correctly and honestly advise the people of Australia why the crew of the British ship Hopepeak had refused to take any more Australian wheat to China because they had witnessed its redeployment to North Vietnam during their first visit to China?

“…your persistence to bring about improvements to Telecom’s country services. I regret that it was at such a high personal cost.”

Hon David Hawker

“I am writing in reference to your article in last Friday’s Herald-Sun (2nd April 1993) about phone difficulties experienced by businesses.

I wish to confirm that I have had problems trying to contact Cape Bridgewater Holiday Camp over the past 2 years.

I also experienced problems while trying to organise our family camp for September this year. On numerous occasions I have rung from both this business number 053 424 675 and also my home number and received no response – a dead line.

I rang around the end of February (1993) and twice was subjected to a piercing noise similar to a fax. I reported this incident to Telstra who got the same noise when testing.”
