Anti-corruption campaigner arrested

Filed under: corruption — anticorruptionnz @ 10:11 pm

Vince Siemer returned to New Zealand this morning and was arrested at the airport.

It was a well-known fact that he was out of the country, he  is a bankrupt and had to  get permission from the  official assignee to return to his country of  birth, he also had to advise them that he was returning.

The mere fact that he returned knowing he would be arrested and  sent to Mount Eden shows the  calibre of the  man. He could have absconded, but then that is probably what the powers that be wanted because Vince is a threat to the New Zealand illusion, the perception that we are corruption free.

Vince is bankrupt because he questioned the methods of Michael Stiassny whilst liquidating a company  .

When you consider  that those who  suffer personal injury  and are  crippled for life  struggle to get cost awards  (ee RSA victim can sue Corrections) Stiassny a wealthy successful business man who did not get a scratch on him   when Vince expressed his opinion of the methods  which had been used ,  received a cost award of $940,000 . And so Vince Siemer was bankrupted.

Being bankrupted and having his family destroyed is not enough   and now Vice is being sent back to prison for the third time   all in an attempt to silence him.  But  why go to this length to silence him  is it because  what Vince is saying  could actually be true?

And why  in a country where we  supposedly have freedom of expression  is someone denied a defence for  speaking the truth and  penalised more than we   sentence our criminals to.

Is crime a lesser offence than speaking the truth?

Why can’t we speak the truth? Is it because the truth hurts and reveals  the reality which could destroy the illusion?

Why is Vince’s opinion of Stiassny  being reacted to  in such an over the top manner? And why is Stiassny getting all this protection from the state  when others  struggle to  get compensation for real  damage  or  have their complaints heard.

Does the fact that Stiassny is associated with a large number of public entities such as Vector  have anything to do with his apparent preferential treatment?

Is he being supported by those  in high places  who know  him and believe they trust him , just as Hubbard  is being supported  by those who personally trust him ?( but  have no material facts other than their own belief)

When we judge the calibre of people  by our  gut instincts and not  by real evidence and  send people to prison rather than investigate, you have to wonder  are we still in the middle ages.

The amount of public money that has been spent on silencing Vince  could have been  well placed in a proper impartial investigation  which would have  put  the issue to rest once and for all.

Corruption in New Zealand is addressed by the hear no evil see no evil speak no evil philosophy.  This is vital to our culture to ensure that our corruption free status is preserved.

Heaven forbid if the reality was to be  seen.

What ever happened to sticks and stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me.

If Stiassny’s reputation was that great wouldn’t Vince’s comments have been like water off a ducks back?

In my experience where there is smoke there is fire.
