The Watchdog

Keeping citizens in the loop

The NZ Solicitor-General David Collins QC is trying to jail Vince Siemer for the FORTH time – for ‘Contempt of Court’ – Wgtn High Court Monday 4 April.

The public’s right to trial by jury, and the public’s right to know when the public’s right to trial by jury is being denied?

People know about this case? In the Wellington High Court – tomorrow – Monday 4 April 2011:

The NZ Solicitor-General David Collins QC is trying to jail Vince Siemer for the FORTH time – for ‘Contempt of Court’.

Vince Siemer has defended the public’ right to know that Winkelman J claimed Kiwis called upon to serve as jurors could not be relied upon to use proper reasoning processes, by making public this ‘Court Order’ of Winkelman J.

Barrister Tony Ellis, is defending kiwisfirst publisher Vince Siemer in a prosecution where Solicitor General David Collins seeks Siemer’s imprisonment for publishing an order where Winkelman J claimed Kiwis called upon to serve as jurors could not be relied upon to use proper reasoning processes.

Pre-trial applications will be heard 4-5 April 2011 before a full bench in the Wellington High Court.

“Justice Winkelmann Admits to Rubber Stamping Suppression Orders

24 March 2011
Whether it is streamlined efficiency or a blatant violation of the elementary requirement that public court proceedings be public, Chief High Court Judge Helen Winkelmann’s associate Brent Scott admitted this week that standard suppression wording was put on the cover page of all Winkelmann J’s rulings in the R v Bailey proceedings as a matter of routine. Bailey concerns the prosecution of 18 accused variously charged with gang, drug and weapons charges. It is the subject of an open Unitied Nations Human Rights complaint and destined to be the most expensive prosecution in New Zealand’s history.

The revelation came to light as a result of an interrogatory question by Barrister Tony Ellis, who is defending kiwisfirst publisher Vince Siemer in a prosecution where Solicitor General David Collins seeks Siemer’s imprisonment for publishing an order where Winkelman J claimed Kiwis called upon to serve as jurors could not be relied upon to use proper reasoning processes.”
