Check out the sort of letters I am forced to write on a regular basis, in an attempt to get justice in this country. Heard some BS from Minister of Justice Andrew Little on news last night about some big review they are doing because our justice system had been Americanised, what does that mean????? Andrew Little knows my case and refuses to do anything about it. The Minister of Health does as well and refuses to do anything about it. I know public mental health they are not using professionally recognised treatment and rehabilitation models and are in fact ILLEGALLY (against UN and international law) experimenting on people with mental health issues in NZ. That they are prepared to pervert justice in this way, proves those at the top are insane and abuse their powerful positions in our society.
And check out the ‘awesome’ lawyer they have given me, so far EVERY lawyer I have ever had that supposed to be experienced in disability were THE WORST, MOST IGNORANT, COWARDLY, USELESS LAWYERS you would ever meet. Obviously the dregs of the legal fraternity get to deal with those who experience the most crime, the most violence and the worst government violations of human rights in this country – according to the UN. Which would of course explain why people like myself are being denied protection from harm, justice and right.

Subject: Formal complaint of perverting course of justice
This is a formal complaint to police regarding people within public mental health services perverting the course of justice by ensuring I was not able to attend a court ordered psychiatric assessment.
Please refer to emails sent to Nelda Day at Masterton Court (I will send copies if you choose to investigate this crime), after I received notification of the assessment where I ask about the meeting being recorded and court security guard Jason being in attendance. At the time I hadn’t read the emailed letter properly due to communication impairments I have when dealing with organisations I am terrified of (like public mental health and ACC). I wasn’t aware of the out of court meeting until late Friday afternoon when lawyer Alisdair Ross phoned me and offered me $50 for petrol to get to Porirua.
I was called away suddenly for 10 days (6-16 August) by my elderly mother who needed to be supervised (due to her health/heart issues) while staying to care for my teenage nephews, while their parents were on a five week holiday through America and Canada. My mother paid for everything and although I was very reluctant to go due to my serious mental health issues and issues with my affluent family, I also desperately needed to see my daughter who lives in ————–. My daughter had a serious car accident three months ago and is lucky to be alive. Because ACC refuse to reinstate my entitlement to professional health care and the Independence Allowance (they brag to WINZ and me about withholding over $10,000 in unpaid IA) I was unable to go to her and hug her due to overwhelming poverty and had been pining to do so since the accident.
I received the notice of the meeting by email on 12 August and responded immediately to Nelda Day, five days after the date on the letter/email. Apparently mental health had tried to deliver it by courier but of course I was not home, so they chose to send it via Masterton court staff who I correspond with regularly.
I advised Alisdair Ross I was not able to attend the assessment at Forensic Mental Health in Porirua due to serious overwhelming phobic impairments I have dealing with public MH services over many years. Particularly as a result of a life-threatening incident in 2002/3 where I was refused mental health services after ————- (note I am very distressed having to bring this event up and don’t want to go into the details as what happened is incredibly traumatising for me). I am very isolated and have a very limited environment due to poverty and overwhelming fear of my cruel hostile violent community, including health and justice workers. All psych assessments I have had done to date have been on court property with a security guard I know in attendance, this is what I was expecting (even though it is still incredibly difficult). I offered to get to Wellington court rather than have the psychiatrist drive all the way to Masterton for the assessment (as Masterton court security are able to work in Wellington) because I know he is a busy person. I also knew the second psych assessment was a formality as the assessments were only done to prove I was to unwell to represent myself in court as Legal Aid were continuing to refuse me a lawyer, after 18 months since the initial charges.
Since I had been given a lawyer there was no longer any reason for the psych assessment as I now had legal representation and could defend my Constitutional Law position regarding my challenging LEGAL non-violent protests, which all the charges I am currently under relate to.
I emailed Nelda Day several times but received no response back – I assumed she was forwarding my emails to Forensic Mental Health. I phoned them myself at 8.30am on Monday 19 August, when the meeting was scheduled for, I left a detailed message with staff for L Pacey. Told the receptionist about the requirement for the assessment to be in a court and how I was unable to attend due to impairments related to my disability. Told them I had been away, apologised for the situation as I knew the psychiatrist was a busy person. Gave them my mobile phone number (which they could have easily obtained from the court or police) and asked L Pacey to contact me and a new time to be organised urgently.
Early on Thursday morning I phoned Forensic Mental Health again (I do not have an email address for these people) and was told the new meeting was for 11am and it was 8.35am and they were demanding it was to be held in Porirua. The woman who answered the phone was the same person as Monday, except now she was hostile and offensive and hung up on me when I responded appropriately to her bigotry.
I then proceeded to phone different places in an attempt to find an email address for Forensic Mental Health and the psychiatrist. I phoned the Minister of Health’s office but they were unable to find me an email address without having to do enquiries themselves and I didn’t want to waste their time. I then phoned public mental health services in Masterton and was put through to the head of adult mental health, a woman (I can’t recall her name). When I asked for an email address for Forensic mental health to sort out an urgent appointment, she started laughing manically and didn’t stop when I asked why, so I hung up.
I am aware from people I know in the community, who have been in situations where I was being discussed by mental health workers, that public mental health services staff in Wairarapa don’t like me and are scared of me. I have never done anything to threaten them with harm in any way, although I do now have a ‘tourettes’ type response when they insult degrade reject and trigger me. Thankfully that only involves insults and swearing – a part of my condition these mental health professionals should understand and accommodate – not use to deny me all health care, justice and extensive welfare/services many other mentally ill people receive and I am denied. Perhaps it is this hatred and fear that compels them to be unprofessional, oppressive, insulting and childishly vindictive in my case. Perhaps it is my years of public and online protests about abusive criminally negligent local and national mental health services they don’t like?
What has happened to prevent me from attending this court required assessment will firstly upset the judge, when I agreed to go even though it was a waste of everybody’s time and I did my best to get out of it. Secondly because it will yet again delay court proceedings which is traumatising and harmful to me, costly to the court and taxpayers. Delaying court proceedings has happened because of police and others before, it is illegal under NZ and international law to use the justice system in a punitive way against a recognised Civil Society Activist (in the area of mental health and justice issues of the poor) as defined by the United Nations.
These people who arranged this meeting have perverted the course of justice and violated my rights as a disabled Civil Society Activist. They have also violated Sections 150A and 151 of the Crimes Act by not acting legally and causing me harm and distress. As a result of this current situation I was very unwell on Wednesday night and police were called by govt/mental health 1737 STAFF WHO HAVE BEEN ORDERED NOT TO DEAL WITH ME, for self-harm and suicide concerns. Being rejected from all forms of health services, severely aggravates the suicidal ideation aspects of my disability (which is a living nightmare trying not to kill yourself and having to deal with it alone), along with my valid extreme fear of police after several instances of unwarranted violence and bigotry is again punitive use of the justice system being ignored by Ind Police Conduct Authority and senior police officers.
Ms Hansen, please advise if you intend to act on this valid complaint of perverting the course of justice and violations of Sections 150A and 151 of the Crimes Act 1961. Mr Ross, please advise what you intend to do about arranging a psych assessment I can attend – please confirm the advice you have given me so far, which was it was nothing to do with you and I was to do what Forensic Mental Health told me to do or I would be jailed for failing to attend the unnecessary unwarranted second assessment.
