What really happened to Nadine Haag?
The body of former Dunedin woman Nadine Haag, 33, was found in the shower of her Castle Hill flat in Sydney, Australia, on December 4, 2009. Police said she had committed suicide.

Murder Mystery: Nadine Hagg did NOT commit suicide, says her family based on the evidence. A dress she may have been wearing on the day of her death has never been found.

Coroner was forced to overturn the perfidious police ruling on the back of an extraordinary investigation by Ms Haag’s own family.

“After the ruling the family’s solicitor called on NSW police to conduct a full, comprehensive investigation. But the family are still waiting.”

At least seven people killed by drowning over Waitangi weekend

At least one death was negligent homicide

Bay of Plenty of Deaths

Woman drowned in the Waikato River after gates of the Aratiatia Dam were opened yesterday. The victim, most probably an overseas visitor, “was swept away yesterday when spillwater from the Mercury Energy-owned dam, near Taupo, surged down the Waikato River, and her body was found this morning,” said a report.

“Mercury Energy Chief Executive Fraser Whineray said the power company was reviewing the warning signs and procedures in the area to see if any improvements could be made,” said the report.

“We’ll be … checking to see if there’s anything further that can be done to minimise the risk, but we’d really ask, please, if people can not be down in the rapids area because it can be very dangerous when those spillways are open.”

Adding insult to injury, in the time-honoured Kiwi tradition, Taupo mayor said locals tended to stay away from the area on the Waikato River where the woman drowned.

Man shot in the face by police “extremely lucky” to be alive –police

A man who allegedly brandished a firearm at police was “extremely lucky” to be alive after being shot in the face, police say. [Translation: Police followed their shot-to-kill policy, but missed.]

Police [thankfully incompetent] marksmen fired at least 6 shots, but missed five times, said Acting Canterbury Police District Commander. The sixth bullet missed the upper part of the head and hit the 24-year-old Christchurch victim in the cheek.

Police haven’t revealed why they shot the man in the face. Was he holding the [alleged] firearm in his mouth?

Major fraud and suspected double murder simply called “alleged conflicts of interest”

Posted by te2ataria on February 3, 2017

Sent by a reader

Spit in their face: The next time someone says NZ is one of the least corrupt countries…

“Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority’s (CERA) staff employed to bring investment to Christchurch set up their own company through which investors would pay them a fee on private property deals,” according to a Stuff investigation, and this is just tip of the iceberg.

What people are saying about CERA:

Labour leader Andrew Little said: “I cannot believe an arrangement like this – where you have public servants also allowed to operate a private company and further their private interests – was approved and signed off.”

Asked what he thinks about The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC) and the State Services Commission (SSC) investigating the private property dealings connected to three former CERA staff [Murray Cleverley, Gerard Gallagher and Simon Nikoloff] Little said SSC and DPMC lacked sufficient investigative powers to conduct an effective inquiry.

“It must be the Auditor-General. The Auditor-General has powers to compel and look not only at what happened with those people and the rest of CERA but what happened at the Minister’s office as well.

“A week after New Zealand is rated top in the world anti-corruption index [George Soros Transparency International -Editor] this is just the stuff that undermines that. If our oversight mechanisms mean this wasn’t picked up then we have some serious work to do.”

Who killed Julian Carver and Michelle Mitchell?

Julian Carver, the former chief information officer at CERA, has died unexpectedly, police said.

Father of two Julian Carver, 44, was the former chief information officer at CERA. He was found dead in  suspicious circumstances, this blog believes, at a psychiatric hospital in Christchurch on January 2, 2017.

Julian Carver, 44, the former chief information officer at The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA), died “unexpectedly” in psychiatric hospital in Christchurch on January 2, 2017.

Peter Thiel’s ghost citizenship mystery deepens

Posted by te2ataria on February 1, 2017

Only in the Zombie Democracy:

Gay billionaire and Trump supporter became a NZ citizen even though he didn’t intend to live here!

It has been revealed that Thiel was granted NZ citizenship even though he had never lived in New Zealand and made plain in his application that he did not intend to in the future—two statutory requirements to become a citizen.

“He attended a private citizenship ceremony at the New Zealand Consulate in Santa Monica in August of 2011.”

Prime Minister Bill English has reportedly defended the Government’s decision to grant him citizenship, saying Thiel had “demonstrated his commitment to New Zealand” over the last 11 years after becoming a resident in 2006.

“TradeMe founder Sam Morgan and Xero CEO Rod Drury wrote letters in support of Thiel’s application.”

It’s unclear how the NZ citizenship might affect his U.S. citizenship, if any.

What is clear, however, is that Theil has powerful links to the spy world.

“Thiel is the co-founder of Palantir, a secretive data analysis company that works with several spy agencies, including potentially New Zealand’s.”

Murder Mysteries, Political Intrigue?

‘Sudden Death’ of a Well-liked Doctor

Dr. Chris Cresswell, acting head of Whanganui Hospital’s emergency department, was found dead next to his mountain bike on Saturday.

In September 2015, a senior doctors’ union “condemned an ‘outrageous’ move by Whanganui District Health Board to summon a hospital doctor to a disciplinary meeting over his [Dr Cresswell’s] part in a protest against the Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement.”

“He was also politically active and a member of the Green Party. He was a major player in raising awareness of climate change, and publicly opposed and demonstrated against the Trans Pacific Partnership and seabed mining.”

Road Murders: Getting killed on NZ roads is a compulsory affair

Posted by te2ataria on December 16, 2016

You’re sober, driving carefully, and the car is in good nick, but still end up dead on the way to work!

The hundreds of people who are being killed on NZ ‘s deadly roads each year are being road murdered, so their deaths must not be treated as accidental.

About 2.7 million licensed but not necessary qualified drivers, half million or so unlicensed/unqualified drivers and more than one million tourists (per year) drive on New Zealand death roads.

A large number of the above drive a vehicle under the influence (illicit drugs, banned substances, prescription medication…), while intoxicated, fatigued or mentally unfit, resulting in inordinate numbers of fatalities and injuries. [Other factors for the carnage include deadly roads, road unworthy vehicles…]

Between 2001 and 2014, New Zealand’s vehicle fleet reportedly increased by 32 per cent, while the population grew by 16 per cent and foreign travel was up by 15 per cent.  And over the last 10 years the number of international visitors has increased by about 30 per cent.

Here’s the latest road fatalities, so far today:

Two people were killed in Rakahouka crash, Southland

Two people were killed in a violent crash on Lorne-Dacre Road (SH 98) Rakahouka, Southland. A third person is in a critical condition, while a fourth has serious injuries. http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/update-two-people-have-died-following-rakahouka-crash-southland

Fatal crash in Omokoroa [Bay of Plenty of Deaths]

A fatal crash occurred in Omokoroa, Tauranga, just before 7.30pm this evening.  At least one person in the crash, which happened on Anderley Ave.  http://www.police.govt.nz/news/release/fatal-crash-omokoroa

  • NZ Road fatalities as of December 16, 2016, according to government: 308
  • NZ Road fatalities as of December 16, 2016, according to statistical models: Up to 866

The State’s other Stinking Secrets

Truth hurts New Zealand tourism. The average tourist would not visit this country, if they knew true extent of the daily carnage on our deadly roads. Therefore:

To protect the tourism industry, about two-thirds of the road fatalities in New Zealand go unreported by our political police, or unrecorded by Minitru [“Ministry of Transport”.]  Se blog content for some of the most blatant omissions.

How Many Foreigners Killed in NZ Since 2000?

About 3,500 overseas visitors, international students, foreign workers, recent emigrants and refugees have lost their lives and 20,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since year 2000.
