The media can continue to report on Cameron Slater’s communications with high-profile figures after the High Court blocked the blogger’s bid for a gagging order.
We must see the Ede-Slater emails, they cut to the very heart of the abuse of power and if as Selwyn Manning has pointed out, Ede has been scanning the PMs briefings…
One of Ede’s handles that he used to communicate with the blogger was email@example.com.
But where Ede slipped up was using his Jason.Ede@parliament.govt.nz email address to receive digitised copies of official government documents from a photocopier/scanner in the Beehive. Its address is: l9-Photocopier@parliament.govt.nz. The l9 referring to Level Nine, the 9th floor of the Beehive Executive Wing, the Prime Minister’s suite.
Once Ede received the documents from L9 to his Beehive email address, he forwarded the documents, adding correspondence and instructions, on-sending to firstname.lastname@example.org which was a second handle he used to then communicate directly with Cameron Slater.
As we now understand, Ede also used varied or dynamic IP addresses to access the internet in an attempt to mask his true identity. But again he failed to understand ICT communications protocols and sent on meta data and idiosyncratic hash data of which is forensically identifiable.
After being informed of the methodology Ede used, Contact A said: “Okay so he received the hard copy of the briefing paper, scanned it to himself, sent it to his hotmail, then sent it to Cam Slater. Its a direct link. The Prime Minister is accountable for that.”
…then for the health of our democracy, we must know if this link is real and we will know that when the Ede/Slater emails are released.
The claim by Slater that his emails were hacked and as such must not be spread around only works if the information isn’t in the public interest. Certainly things Slater says to his lawyer or accountant or Doctor should be privileged and not released, but neither Hager, Rawshark or even the mainstream media are interested in exposing those elements of Slater’s life (a restraint that Slater has never shown), they are only interested in exposing the corrupt political manipulations and malevolence Slater and his sadists conducted.
Our Democracy is more important than the law Cam’s rich Daddy can buy in court. With 3 journalists now in possession of the emails, it’s just a matter of time before they are released.
Let’s see what the people of NZ think of John Key after they are released.
