The Price fixing scandal of 3 June 1993 was not the only corrupt practice at the nouveau riche Colin Giltrap’s Giltrap City Toyota in the mid 1990’s, there was another, it however never saw the light of day, buried in almost surreal circumstances – In a conspiracy, a series of events in which over more than two years involved senior civil servants in a bizarre failure of the Westminster systems separation of powers, inveigling the state broadcaster and various other media organisations enlisted to assist in the cover-up.
What exactly was it that TVNZ’s 60 Minutes cameraman Mark Chamberlain was instructed to conceal, why was he so reluctant to give evidence in the criminal prosecution of Giltrap Toyota’s employees? Why did Damien Cummerford keep his mouth shut, and 60 minutes icon John Hudson too?
They were all aware of the evidence and involved in planning the sting operation, involving covert filming. As they had, along with MP Harry Duynhoven, earlier in Japan; when the 60 minutes odometer fraud expose was first aired.
So why then did Chamberlain, a crucial witness, suddenly have a change of heart and purger himself? We’ll let the readers draw their own conclusions after viewing the evidence – evidence that certain Judges, Polititians and TVNZ went to extraordinary lengths to suppress.
Extraordinary video footage; filmed, by none other than Chamberlain himself, for the 60 Minutes special on odometer fraud will soon be available to view on laudafinem’s YouTube channel.
(Vimeo, if you are a New Zealand resident; TVNZ has a bad habit of censoring/blocking YouTube in your country when it involves irrefutable evidence of corruption on the part of their management, employee’s and associates like Jenni McManus).
This is the very same footage that TVNZ paid Mark Chamberlain $15’000.00 (perhaps more) to conceal; requiring him to avoid, at all costs, giving evidence in the prosecution of T.K.L.H & R. TVNZ, clearly, on the instructions of its political masters had also canned the 60 Minutes investigative report into corruption at Giltrap’s dealerships).
Chamberlain and TVNZ later enlisted another of the bent media cadre, at the (now Fairfax owned) Sunday Star Times, Jenni McManus’s bent tyro Cameron Bates assistance to further muddy the waters; designed purely to further pervert the course of justice.
The price fixing scandal was bad enough, with Giltrap, having lost his appeal finally fronting up with the cash for fine’s totaling $150’000 in 2005. But this scandal, which was to be successfully buried not only involved Giltrap’s companies and employee’s, it involved the Minister for Justice, Douglas Graham; the Solicitor General at the time, Terrance Arnold; the courts registry staff; transcribers and members of the New Zealand judiciary – in particular two judges and their remarkable twisting, turning and manufacturing of law, precedent and the evidence.
In a remarkable set of circumstances Justice Randerson, the presiding High Court Judge, had purchased his shiny new Camry off Peter Carlton at Giltrap Toyota no doubt sitting in Carlton’s office at the exact same time the unrelated fraud was executed on another vehicle – true to form Randerson refused to recuse himself. What was it that Giltrap then purchased off his mates in the New Zealand Government and Judiciary?
Antony Penrose Randerson, prior to becoming a Judge, was a senior partner in the law firm Kensington Swan up until 1989, along with his mate Justice Judith Potter. Kensington Swan a very corrupt firm, that went to extraordinary lengths in pursuit of their objectives, Randerson was no doubt privy to Potters involvement as a director of Farrow Corporation and the damages claim against Farrow Finance the family had commenced in 1988. Another association that Randerson had failed to declare to the prosecution.
Justice Anthony Penrose Randerson, District Court Judge Anne-Marie Josephine Bouchier (nee Budge), the staff at the Otahuhu District Court registry and the Serious Fraud Office, just what was it they all had in common with Giltrap Toyota, other than a shiny new Toyota Camry? The answers to these questions and much much more coming soon.
