Judge Whata still hasn’t released Harris’ perjury hearing transcripts to the Police so they can conduct an investigation into further perjury allegations against Harris . With the recent death threat letter against me from Harris , it looks as though these delays could be emboldening Harris

The design problems at the new Auckland Maximum Security Prison still haven’t been rectified so inmates can transfer over . Earliest date now advised by Neale Beales is 10 October , but take that with a grain of salt .

Big boost to the Miro Unit economy from Monday , with the addition of about 15 jobs paying $18/week to the existing 8 horticulture jobs . The 15 will prepare the evening meals for the whole prison .

A Parole lawyer reports to me this week “new Chairman Sir Ron Young so far he has been making very good Parole decisions” . However , Corrections has yet to to offer me an opportunity at the Auckland selfcare unit or Work To Release , as suggested to them by the Parole Board in March.
I also hear from Kelvin Davis on TV that the total prison muster has fallen 6% since March . However , Miro Unit is still double bunked and both these issues will therefor remain on the grievance list for my hearing in the Hamilton High Court in November . I have another Court Management Conference for this tomorrow in preparation . The Crown had been instructed to provide me with “discovery” documents by last Friday and failed to do so . I will be asking the Court to apply a penalty on them for this

Judge Whata still hasn’t released Harris’ perjury hearing transcripts to the Police so they can conduct an investigation into further perjury allegations against Harris . With the recent death threat letter against me from Harris , it looks as though these delays could be emboldening Harris . I am sending Judge Whata another Memorandum advising him of this and requesting urgent release of the transcript , so both the perjury & death threat allegations can be investigated. Goodness knows what Harris may do next.

    double bunking needs to go. Also I don’t like the idea of the new workers camp for the prison being built on our Maori land near Otorohanga
    This slave camp is the brain child of the Aussie typical them bring their stupid fucken ideas here.
