Who We Are

Read about corruption exposed on ABC News Australia 28/02/2024 @, i.e., "A retired politician was cultivated by an international spy ring, and attempted to introduce spies to a prime minister's family." 

Could the unnamed retired politician who was cultivated by an international spy ring be the same politician or a member of the same political party who was responsible for trading with Australia's enemy during the North Vietnam War? Bribery and Corruption My Story Warts & All

The Australian Minister of Trade and Industry, Sir John McEwen, 1967, made a public statement that the British seafarers of the Hopepeak ship were refusing to take Australian wheat to Communist China because they were fearful for their lives, which was only an afterthought. When John McEwen knew this was not an afterthought. His selling of Australian wheat to Red China, aware it was feeding the North Vietnamese while Australia, New Zealand and the USA were at War with North Vietnam, was his only concern. 

China was named in March 2024 as the country behind the recruitment of 'traitor' MP refer to

Read Alan’s book

My name is Alan Smith. This is the story of my battle with a telecommunications giant and the Australian Government. This battle has twisted and turned since 1992 through elected governments, government departments, regulatory bodies, the judiciary, and the Australian telecommunications giant, Telstra, or Telecom, as it was known when this story started. The quest for justice continues to this day. Nine publishers from all around the globe have published Absent Justice, which is now available for free in several languages.

Read about 'Mr Bates vs the Post Office' who took on the British government-owned Post Office,, who found similar irregular activities by public servants who tried to hide the truth surrounding the valid claims registered by Mr Bates and his Post Office friends who dared tackle the British owned Post Office.

“…the very large number of persons that had been forced into an arbitration process and have been obliged to settle as a result of the sheer weight that Telstra has brought to bear on them as a consequence where they have faced financial ruin if they did not settle…”

Senator Carr

In January 2018, my partner, Cathy, was with me for my first appointment with our local doctor after I had survived a heart attack and double bypass surgery. Although the doctor was very sympathetic to my situation (and knows my COT story), he couldn’t help but ask:  “Why am I not surprised?”

As I write this, it is now January 2024. Still, every time I go back to finalise various parts of our website at, I have to re-read all the complex details that make up the whole, true, terrible story; my anxiety levels instantly begin to rise alarmingly. The situation worsens, though, because I also find I am just stuck; I seem unable to find the right words to finish this dreadful story. It seems that, no matter what I do, I can’t find a way to adequately explain this disaster that we have all struggled with for so many years. One part of the problem is, of course, that none of the COT cases – all honest Australian citizens – should ever have been forced into a situation that would eventually leave us all dealing with so many still-unaddressed crimes; crimes that were committed against us while we were officially part of a government-endorsed, legal, arbitration process. There are two parts to this problem for the COTs. However, to begin with, some are now identified on this website who worked with Telstra to carry out those still-unaddressed crimes, and then there is Telstra, an organisation with so much power that they could stop any authorities (including government authorities) from investigating any of those crimes → Refer to the 53 examples attached in our Evidence Files Corruption in Arbitration.
