Identical complaints were also forwarded to the Commissioner of Police and the Office of the Ombudsman on January 4th. This outrageous and arrogant flouting of the law and due process strikes at the very heart of the New Zealand Judicial system, the rule of law and our democratic tradition. The shambolic Turitea Decision is a stain on this country’s totally unjustified international reputation as being corruption free.
All submitters have asked for is that the Final Decision address the serious issues they raised and to correct the egregious, deliberate errors it contains. All these efforts have been rebuffed and now we know why, the Final Decision was an illegal, worthless document produced by an activist pretending to be a judge with a warrant. Kenderdine after the 6th August 2010 had no status or right whatsoever to continue on the Board of Inquiry, although she continued to take very substantial compensation under false pretences.This is third world behaviour secretly condoned by corrupt participants.
Options for redress do not include a Judicial Review or a complaint to the Judicial Complaints Commissioner as the Final Decision was never made by a judge with a warrant. Furthermore there is a three year backlog of complaints with the Judicial Complaints Commissioner.
Kenderdine was not replaced before her exclusion from the judiciary for the simple reason that any judge replacing her would never have approved the wind farm after reading the trenchant criticism made in opposing submissions. Kenderdine and her handlers never expected to get caught.
MRP’s long term intention is very likely to sell the consents for Turitea and Puketoi to overseas investors. The insurmountable problem for these crooks now is that they don’t have a consent for Turitea and the recently approved ONE PLAN protects the Tararua Ranges from this kind of environmental destruction.
In due course this matter will also be referred to the Financial Markets Authority.
