hi we have already applied for costs which was judged on papers the judge say he would find for us proves the charge should never been laid and continued but cost 1988 give $ 240 per half day of court time .the problem my barraster had no court time as the case was put off 3 times and breifs werent given for 9 months then show they were bring charges for a false reason givng us a complete defence our barraster told then that and then the charges were withdrawn before the main court hearing. regards
answers please ; With clear evidence will police bring the charge of misfeasance against a public officer or would it have to be a private prosecution ? Is lying in briefs perjury even although the court case was withdrawn ? If a lawyer brings a criminal charge for a council against a party but proof is that he knew it was false ,and he also refused to supply brief for many months and then withdrew the charges because we were not the proper party wedidnt own the alledged buildings/caravan and were not doing any building work, He knew this fact and others (not only not guilty but the notice to fix that cause the charge was wrong ! a vehicle and not subject to a N T F, from the start ) in letters to council he said tell me to wof & reg it and that will stop the n t f. He kept to case going 9 months charging council over $30,000 fees and when we entered evidence about the WOF & REG letter in your cost claim showing he knew, he then left his law firm and resigned as a partner., What is my best action .law soc,court etc Is there a law firm specializing in my problem that would help in only making sure and guiding a person taking a private prosecution . You are free to ph me about this very unusual case kind regards XXXXX XXXXX XXXXXXX XXXXXXXXXX
Im in Central Hawks Bay but the problem with using a local lawyer is the old boys metwork i prefer to use i1 out of this area to just help/guide me with me bring/fileing the /charges/claims p.s I believe i have clear evidence of intent and would rather lay charges with the police if misfeasance is a crime that they can investigate , thank so much for your help ,regards richard
been to ombudsman about 1 year ago proir to trial, they had 1900
cases and they were very ineffective
Surely it must be a crime to charge a person knowing them to be not guilt, what crime is it ? regards
i understand and will contact the lawyer you recommended but just to satisfy a old man with absolute evidence, what is the criminal charge regards
yes, I know 115 Last questions ; Under ( b ) above is less than 3yrs : : what about if it could only be a fine if the false charges could be impose and a criminal conviction with up to $200,000 plus $40,000 fine per day, it went on for many months making it a possible $ 2,000,000.00
Last question in their briefs there is clear liars that were being bought before the court . Can the briefs be bought into evidence in a future case
p.s. opur barrister has proven it was bought in bad faith and gross misconducted was excepted by the judge on papers he found for us but only could award cost to the 1988 scale being no cost
Hi Can briefs be entered as evidence /of intent in a later case , or what can be done about the clear mistruths,that purposely bought the false criminal charges ? regards
p.s their corispondance shows they have said 5 different untrue reason for bring the charges and changing it as they see that reason will be discredited A VERY CLEAR CASE OF BADFAITH / GROSSMISCONDUCT of a C E O and a REGS MANAGER giving instructions to their staff to assist/coverup.
Hi Thankyou ,From what info you have got from me ,how unusual is this case ?
ps i have elected councillors on my side who have seen other lies from this pair, but can do nothing to remove this c,e.o.and his regs manager
just to finish
I was doing a property development of 24 sections council told me to stop, even although they knew we had sold the section and others had moved their caravans on. They told them to put them on piles and when they didnt they put the ntf on our company and then said if we didnt put our neighbours caravan on piles they would issue another ntf ,which they did and threatened to remove then of site, later done a dawn raid on the old sick owners
We had backing from the building a
nd housing and got a opinion from their head expert saying it a vehicles and outside the building act (see t/me bw768 for photos) after charges were remove in court council said the 2 ntfs remain so we now await a determination from the b&h as to them being vehicles (.out in 2 weeks)
From june 2011 our develepment has been stopped with a loss of about $ 600,000.we will soon file for damages but the main thing is that i dont want them to do it to anyone else
Would you guide me if i bring a private prosecution
Thankyou do you want to be involved ?
Its great to have a second opinion as my barraster M Talbot is very busy and hard to contact at times, i dont like to bother him with question all the time, regards RICHARD
OK, more info 4 you ;in papers their new laywer claimed the reason they charged us was;
The regs manager had done a title search the day of issuing the ntf ,and it showed us as the owners. we made a Off Inf act request to the lands and survey which showed that no search was done and they never even logged in. A title search was only done 4 months later just before the charges were laid.We put this in our papers reply
In their files it showed that they knew it had been sold and we never owned the caravans/alledged buildings and a ntf has to be against the owner or the person doing the work and we were none of those .
I dont wish to be mean with you and im not sure how much ive paid you im not good with computers or spelling as you can see.
Can we come to some arrangement within this platform?or ?
does that mean ive only paid you once but rated you several times ? regards
sorry about the t/me numbers,they are;600571000,,591410626,,591412448regards
