I have sent this email to a police officer who has replaid that he is not longer working at the Mill Park Police Station. He has requested me to go in person. Given my past experiences, I prefer to gel legal representation. I am reporting the latest attack on my family's right to peaceful living. I am currently suffering from generalised anxiety and afraid to go out as a result of organised racism. Their last attack occurred on Saturday 29th/May/21 and Sunday 30th/May/21. There have been two alarming explosive type sounds. Chases on the freeway have also re-started. 11th/May (I was ridiculed by a receptionist at I-MED Radiology Bundoora) (Report on file). I reported a list of abuses in 2011 following a physical assault (the result was a twisted bruised arm medical record available from Murray Rd Medical Centre 3072) (please refer to the letter to the police attached). Chases in the freeway, unjustified/unprovoked verbal abuses, however, have never stopped. They get worse at times (Reported to family Dr Rasika Kumarasinghe from Alpha Medical Centre Mill Park 3082, Ms Alice Ntobedzi Psychologist Mill Park 3082, Ms Halina Cumbo Counsellor Catholic Care Epping 3076, Ms Faye Evans Psychologist 3034). I am seeking protection. People have entered our premises and my car to move objects around. Jewellery has been stolen from our property in Mill Park. I've had countless silent calls from a private number/s since 2011.Tuesday 18th/May/21 A young man from the Guide dogs Assoc. (02 85979204) called asking for donations. When I refused, he said "this is why you had so much shit happening to you...."

He also indicated that while I remained in his side nothing bad would happen to me. He went on to claim that they would not let our great country turn into a shithole country like yours. He became angry as I shared with him a bad experience I had.On Friday 25th/Nov/2016 I called 000 to request a police patrol at my residence. I spoke to a female Police officer. I explained that my three young daughters and I were terrified as a one-night stayer was alucinating, aggressive, verbally abusing and kicking our front security door. The female police officer told me to open the door and to refund his money. I told the abuser I don't have any money at home, come back after 5 pm when my husband would be home with his money. After arriving home from work my husband called the police and a police patrol came very soon. Police officers took photos and a report. Abuser had damaged the property (cut fridge seals, the fridge cord, the exhaust fan cord, some other minor damages to window's frames and walls) (emails on file).Around 2015 advise me not to travel overseas as the Australian Police would hire a gangster to kill me.2011 Ms Sophie tried to recruit me aginst the Chinese Community again.Around 2009 a representative from Scholastics visiting our home advised me not to give jobs to asylum seekers nor new IMMIGRANTS.Between 1995-1997 Ms Margaret Scarret (former neighbour in Clifton Hill) tried to recruit my brother and I to join the UNO party against the Asian Community in Australia. … read more

What can we do? Neighbour dispute: We own a property (1
Neighbour dispute: We own a property (1 acre) that is a flying fox colony and they are protected and we want to protect them. We have people living in the property at present who are intending to buy it and they are flying fox people and are heavily involved in the care of these creatures. We also own another property next door almost and the neighbour that owns the property adjoining both of us is on 1 acre also but also part owns the land beside it that is bigger with his parents. He has made it his mission for the past 12 months to try to disperse the colony of bats and to intimidate us. I am so scared we have put our other property on the market and I have moved away leaving my partner there until it sells. The issues. He (the neighbour) burns 2 incinerators extremely close to the fence under the trees, fills them with accelerants and creates toxic smoke that has filled both our houses up (100m away) to a point we have to sit outside. He revs up and down the fence line in an old car he has now taken the exhaust pipe off and does burn outs just sitting beside the house on his side and revving and burnouts continuously with noise, fumes and dust storms filling up the house. He bangs metal for hours against the fence, he yells he can do whatever he likes its his property. He has previously threatened to burn the place down and our place if we ever report him. We called the police twice and fire brigade when he used a blower vac to send a massive fountain of embers into the property trying to set it alight. I am terrified of this man and so is the new people (who may end up leaving and we lose a sale due to this mans behaviour). I have reported him to council now for the toxic smoke and to the Dept of Environmental Services for his attack on a protected species (they have opened an investigation and want more footage and will do something in approx 6 months time as they want to take it to court and want as much as they can to have him charged - also they are re-listing the camp for protection). The properties are in Hillview Qld. … read more
