I Want My Rent!

Carwyn Kawana says he will confiscate goods from shop, again, until they pay the rent

A Maori activist who claims to own Palmerston North is not amused by the offer to drop  “shoplifting charge” against him.

Let’s face it if you didn’t pay your mortgage, the bank would apply to courts for a repossession order.

Carwyn Kawana was offered a deal in the Palmerston North District Court yesterday when he appeared to defend a charge of shoplifting from The Warehouse.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Mike Toon said Kawana was a man who stayed true to his word and offered to drop the charge in exchange for a vow to stay on the right side of the law.

CK had returned the goods, which the blog believes were removed from the shop as a symbolic gesture.

Kawana told the Judge:  “I will probably do it again, Your Honour.”

If they owe him the rent, then they should pay up!

He stole from the store when he went to to collect “rent” about six weeks after he delivered an eviction notice in July last year.

Kawana also issued eviction notices to Massey University, Linton Military Camp, Palmerston North City Council, and the Inland Revenue Department.

The judge said: “Higher courts than this have already made rulings on this argument.”

CK who wants his day in court told the judge:  “The judges that made the ruling before …  have not seen the new evidence I have in my bag.”

He is representing himself because “no-one in town will represent me,” the report said.

The court should first ask CK to produce his new evidence. If, having seen the evidence, they still insist he doesn’t own Palmerston North, then someone close to him MUST! It sure as hell didn’t belong to the current occupiers!

Welcome to the Raw Sewage Club

The Naked Truth?

New Zealand Towns are Sinking in Raw Sewage

There’s only so much untreated sewage you can dump at the sea, before it rises up filling your boots, as it were.

A knee-deep sewage spill in Palmerston North has ruined two cars and left a city family wondering why nobody was warned to stay away from the river that flowed down their street.

Judith Deane-Freeman, who lives at Escort Grove, said the spill was so high it filled her gumboots and leaked through her two Toyota cars parked on the roadside.

“I waded out to retrieve my cars. The water was lapping into them,” she said.

Ms Deane-Freeman was surprised when her cars were towed away and written off by her insurance company on Tuesday, just hours after the spill, which was caused by a Palmerston North wastewater treatment plant malfunction.

The untreated sewage had burst out of a manhole filling Escort Grove in  a radius 80 meters.

Ms Deane-Freeman hopes Palmerston North City Council will pay the insurance excess on her vehicles.
