Part 52D. Australia’s “irrelevant” Crimes against Humanity:- the text of a Statutory Declaration to the South Australian Police Commissioner and State Coroner.

This posting contains the text of a statutory declaration shown in the previous posting.


Any person charged with a crime, or any welfare recipient who is the victims of one of the Morrison Government’s fraudulent welfare rip-offs,. can table these statutory declarations require that Crown lawyers explain why the systemic defrauding and random murder of welfare recipients by an unconstitutionally elected government is apparently not a crime.

Statutory Declaration 1:

R 100000 dead dec


I declare the following facts to be true and independently verifiable if tested by impartial investigators.

1. On January 27th 2008, Mr. Ian Ward, an Aboriginal elder died from heatstroke after being transported from Laverton to Kalgoorlie in the back of a van in which the air conditioning was either faulty or not working. In May 2011, the State of Western Australia, Department of Corrective Services, pleaded guilty to failing to ensure that persons who were not employees were not exposed to hazards and, by that failure, causing the death of Mr. Ian Ward. On July 7th 2011, in the Kalgoorlie Magistrates Court, the Department of Corrective Services was fined $2850,000 for its role in the death of Mr. Ian Ward.

2. Custodial Officers were prosecuted, Graham Kenneth Powell, KA324/11 on 7th September 2011, and Nina Mary Stokoe, KA325/11 on 5th October 2011. Both pleaded Guilty to the charge of “Being an employee failed to take reasonable care to avoid adversely affecting the safety or health of any other person through an act or omission at work and by that contravention caused the death of, or serious harm to Ian Ward.” On 12th August 2011 G4S Custodial Services Pty Ltd (ACN 050 069 255) was prosecuted, KA327/11 and pleaded Guilty to “Being an employer, failed so far as was practical , to ensure that the safety or health of a person not being its employee, was not adversely affected wholly or in part as a result of any hazard that arose from or was increased by the system of work that had been or was being operated by the accused, and by that contravention caused the death of, or serious harm, to Ian Ward”.

On 20th February 2017, Senator George Brandis made the following statements during the broadcast of an Australian Broadcasting  Commission program, #Qand A. “Now, this system involves a review of potentially millions of transfer payments, so of course there will be mistakes made, and I agree with what Piers Ackermann said, that when mistakes are made and they have terrible human consequences, then off course that’s a tragedy. But we do have to have appropriate compliance measures and the idea of data matching, introduced by Hawke and the idea of automated letters being sent to people when there is a discrepancy evident from the data-matching between the ATO data and the Centrelink data; it was introduced by you, is not a bad system. The methodology that has been used by this government is the same methodology that we inherited from you.”

 3. On 21st February 2017, the Statement of Facts & Issues was lodged for AAT case 5334 of 2016, 2nd appeal. An  issue raised was the unreported, classified death toll caused by unconstitutional welfare penalties, estimated a cumulative death toll of approximately 100,000, or even higher. Rather than provide precise details of the death toll, the Sectary of the Department of Social Services issued a proffer, which was accepted, that reinstated the Applicant’s disability pension. Consequently, at this point in time, the precise death toll caused by unconstitutional tortious conduct remains undisclosed.

4. And I make this solemn declaration conscientiously believing the same to be true, and by virtue of the provisions of the Oaths Act 1936.
