The investigation followed accusations that the Senator – who always protested his innocence – was part of a ‘network’ of individuals, including lawyers, politicians, backers and planning officers, that had been involved in making corrupt planning decisions relating to rezoned land to benefit a local developer.
Ex-Senator Stuart Syvretsaid...
No - I was not interviewed by the police.
Nor - more significantly - were at least four primary witnesses.
Nor was any investigative effort made to obtain any evidence, from the obvious sources & locations. In contrast say, to an illegal, ten-strong police raid - conducted without a search-warrant - against me, for a single supposed breach of the Data Protection Law. A raid ordered by William Bailhache -who then lied about it. The same William Bailhache who - in an act of gross criminality - attempted to coerce Police Chief Graham Power into not investigating the planning corruption. Mr Power refused to be coerced in that way - so Bailhache said to him "So be it." A few days later, the Police Chief was illegally suspended. He was replaced by David Warcup, the puppet of the Bailhache Brothers - who then carried out the illegal raid.
Quite simply - the matter has not been actually "investigated - in any proper, objective, lawful sense.
On the contrary - strenuous - and illegal - efforts were made by the Law Officers Department and the SOJP to actually sabotage any effective investigation.
But, despair not - it's another damning example pf the breakdown in the rule of law - going on the claim-form against the Sec of State for Justice.
