It’s now officially spring and Lauda Finem is back. First up well be bringing readers a series of posts, updates on the Blomfield case and the many attempts of the New Zealand courts to use Blomfield’s false allegations to shut down legitimate reporting and comment.
LF became aware that Blomfield had contacted twitter two weeks ago and again falsely claiming that LF tweets were subject to the laws of New Zealand and it’s (no jurisdiction) court orders, we kid you not.
There also seems to have been a variation made to the original order of the New Zealand court; Justice Woodhouse and the Court now falsely claiming jurisdiction over the Telstra email accounts of Australians, but more on that in the next post.
Naturally, as is always our habit, we have published the correspondence below. It is undoubtedly in the public interest and certainly should be of interest to bloggers everywhere, not just New Zealand; particularly if bloggers or citizen journos are considering taking on the New Zealand Government, it’s thoroughly bent police or any of the country’s other corrupt Govt agencies;

Naturally enough we recently responded to twitter, but in the intervening period twitter hasn’t taken action as they undoubtedly realize that team Lauda Finem are not tweeting from New Zealand but rather from Australia, France, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Germany and the Netherlands, as we have always maintained is the case;
Dear Sir Madam,
The so called court order relied on was granted without jurisdiction and is subsequently of no interest to us. Being Australian citizens resident in the Netherlands we are not subject to New Zealand law nor any order of it’s courts.
We have been made aware that late last year the plaintiff, Blomfield, filed false claims asserting that we are based in New Zealand, a false claim which will have been completely disproved by now.
We would suggest that you seek the original of NZ lawyer Andrew Gilchrists report to the New Zealand court, the contents of which we are confident will establish this fact beyond any doubt.
It should also be noted that the plaintiff has used a variety of false claims on numerous occasions, using the New Zealand courts, against other media organizations and NZ based bloggers, over a period of 5 years, during which time he has verily failed to take any of these purported “defamation’s” to a substantive hearing.
In short Mr Blomfield is a time waster who has apparently been using the NZ courts to stymie legitimate journalism, criticism, consumer warning and comment; failing to carry through on any of his threatened defamation torts primarily because he wouldn’t be sucessful.
We are additionally aware that in another case the victim, NZ blogger Cameron Slater, has applied for a strikeout subsequent to Blomfield’s failure to complete another defamation claim in over five years. That Application had is first call-over on february 22, 2017 and is due to be heard again in April.
Not withstanding, as aforesaid, we are not located in New Zealand, are all foreign nationals, and as such, not subject to New Zealand’s laws or it’s Courts. In short, yes you made an error in law.
As a footnote, you should also be aware that neither Blomfield or the NZ courts have served Lauda Finem with any legal documents, claims or evidence in support or these spurious allegations, as is required under the laws of most Western jurisdictions, including New Zealand.
Team Lauda Finem
Next up we ask the question; what’s really going on at the New Zealand High Court, why is Justice Woodhouse humoring Kiwi fraudster Matthew Blomfield?
We do have the answer and it has nothing whatsoever to do with Blomfield, rather yet another attempt by New Zealand’s corrupt authorities to shut down Lauda Finem’s critical reporting and commentary, no doubt by attempting to blame a local Kiwi. Doubtless both Blomfield and Gilchrist were well aware that no one in New Zealand had ever published on any Lauda Finem platform, website, twitter or facebook prior to Blomfield foolishly trying to con Twitter.
This attempt to con twitter is of course not the first occasion where Blomfield has been caught with his trousers down, regular readers will already be aware that Blomfield tried this stunt with Google a while back, in fact late last year we exposed Blomfield for his attempt to have our material pulled from google siting an interim order given in the Slater case:
In fact Google have now woken up to the likes of Blomfield and the bogus defamation tort scams, designed to muzzle or completely silence the media and citizen journo’s:
“Removal requests may also be philosophically troubling in many instances. According to their Transparency Report, many removal requests citing defamation originate from government agencies and law enforcement. (Albeit, it seems likely that many of these removal requests may originate from countries that do not have as strong freedom-of-speech laws as found in the United States.)”
Of course in the case of Blomfield the requests are more than just philosophically troubling, they’re a complete and utter fraud; the latest almost certainly solicited by the New Zealand police using ex-cops, aided and abetted by the New Zealand Ministry Of Justice, but more about that in a later post
As aforesaid it would appear the the New Zealand Court has yet again acted in want of jurisdiction, this time trying to get their hands on LF’s Australian email accounts. This is of course yet another order in want of jurisdiction, and as such unlawful, but it does however give LF some pretty extraordinary opportunities, windows that Judge Woodhouse couldn’t possibly have foreseen, involving serious allegations of New Zealand police corruption, and may eventually live to regret, again more on that in another post.
Below is the bullshit court order Blomfield included with his half-baked approach to Twitter
