The face of the Takapuna Bomber Alan Thomas. Thomas’s injury – beaten with a stupid stick till it broke – symptomatology – gets lost falling down – and had trouble breathing till someone gave him instructions.

ACCForum bomb plot: Plans for van blast

We here at Lauda Finem thought that our new readers might like a little background on what makes the people behind the anonymous monikers on and its satellite websites and tick (that should probably read “Tick Tick Boom”).

The article below covers the trial and conviction of Alan Thomas for planning one of those terrorist “tick tick boom” moments . Mr Thomas, it appears has refused to mend his ways. This week saw Thomas and his multiple personalities again behave in a very peculiar manner, but a little more about that later.

Lauda Finem researchers have been busy over a number of months identifying the names and contact details of every person that has been defamed by Thomas and others in the aforementioned forums. Numbering among those defamed are doctors, surgeons, assessors, psychologists, psychiatrists, in fact the whole spectrum of the medical profession and allied advocates and insurance workers. Now that we have also identified the sites creator we will be contacting them all with the news. So back to Mr Alan Gordon Thomas yet another of the ACCForum nut-jobs we’ve been very busy investigating:

Alan Thomas was so angry with ACC that he hatched a plan to park a van full of explosives and nails outside a branch office, set off the building’s fire alarm and explode the bomb as staff gathered outside.

When police raided the 55-year-old beneficiary’s North Shore home, they found bomb-making manuals on his home computer.

Thomas told the officers he had not read them.

After ACC learned of the threat, it employed extra guards at its offices and revamped security at a cost of more than $16,000.

Yesterday, Thomas was sentenced in the North Shore District Court to 10 months of home detention.

ACC sought reparation from the prisoner for the increased security costs, and Judge Lawrence Hinton ordered him to pay $5000 at $100 a month.

Thomas had earlier pleaded not guilty to threatening to kill or do grievous bodily harm to Accident Compensation Corporation staff.

An associate of Thomas told the hearing last year of discussions in May 2007 about bombing ACC.

The pair met through a website where ACC claimants discuss their cases in an online forum.

The witness told the court last year that he initially treated it as a “passing comment”. 

But the conversations continued and Thomas told the man of his plan to bomb ACC’s Takapuna branch. 

The witness said about 20 discussions took place before he told Thomas he wanted nothing more to do with him. He told another associate, who passed the information to ACC.

Judge Hinton found Thomas guilty.

“He toyed arrogantly with the lives and safety of those who were going about their day-to-day jobs in a public institution,” the judge said at yesterday’s sentencing.

Defence lawyer Nigel Cooke said Thomas never had the means to put the alleged plan into action. The police prosecutor agreed.

Mr Cooke said his client maintained his innocence, and had brain damage.

“Because of that, in my submission, this man is not a person in the know who you would describe as in the 100 per cent category.”

Mr Cooke said his client did not own a van.

But Judge Hinton said the threat against ACC staff was especially sinister as it targeted people who would have thought they had fled to safety.

“The threat concerned a body of people representing an institution which Mr Thomas hates. The target of the threat was not the institution but the people of the institution.

“Some of these people in the institution he hates would never have had anything to do with him.”

Thomas had a “deep-seated hostility to ACC”.

Judge Hinton said the probation officer who visited Thomas was shown many ACC files “meticulously packed away in folders”.

“It is clear Mr Thomas has a compulsive obsession with ACC which he seems evidently quite proud of.”

According to the court file, Thomas was found guilty in 2000 of 22 fraud charges relating to ACC, and was sentenced to three years in prison.

The Herald reported that at the time Thomas was receiving ACC compensation, he wrote articles entitled “How to become a millionaire” and the “Money Machine” and was photographed introducing then Finance Minister Bill Birch to a seminar.

He received $238,000 in accident compensation over seven years while also earning from an immigration consultancy, publishing a Chinese newspaper and teaching English. 

A police document in the latest case said Thomas had been battling ACC over an injury to his wrist for 15 years, and had been barred under trespass laws from all ACC offices in the country.

    The shortest distant between a problem and its solution is the distance between your knees and the floor. The one who kneels to Allah can stand up to anything.

    a dirty bomb combining 4.5kg of Semtex plastic explosive with a large caesium chloride radiological source (activity rate: 74,000 gigabecquerels), detonated in the open air

  • Abdul Aliyy says:

    Timothy McVeigh was unrepentant to the bitter end, claiming that the true terrorist was the U.S. Government, and referring to the killing of scores of innocent children in Oklahoma City as “collateral damage.”

    Team @ Lauda you are the true cyber-terrorists and you will not be collateral damage.

    On April 19, 1995, around 9:03 a.m., just after parents dropped their children off at day care at the Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City, the unthinkable happened.

    A massive bomb inside a rental truck exploded, blowing half of the nine-story building into oblivion. A stunned nation watched as the bodies of men, women, and children were pulled from the rubble for nearly two weeks.

    When the smoke cleared and the exhausted rescue workers packed up and left, 168 people were dead in the worst terrorist attack on U.S. soil. (Prior to 09-11-01)

    Team @ Lauda Tick Tock Tick Tock

    Will you be rescued or will you be a red stain upon the soil.

  • Just like Wiremu….or is that Alan Thomas or Wislang using another moniker. Can you believe the self delusion “the destructive power of ACC forum” what an admission whoever the moniker belongs to….just how stupid are these people?

  • Whats with all the sad old moari women who use the ACC forum site as an oulet.for their hate! . They are a disgrace and embarrassment to their culture, sex and country. Bludging uneducated old Whahine’s with an exagerated sense of entitlement. This guy Thomas and his business partner Arrin Wislang are a couple of the biggest scum bags on this planet.

  • Perhaps laudascum might want to make an online donation to BRICC – the Ballarat Regional Integrated Cancer Centre

  • The satellite sites you refer are mere minnows compared to the destructive power of accforum – the only place on the Internet that tells the truth about ACC. It is not a HATE site like this blog.

  • Inspection of Alan’s computers found there was no bomb-making tips.The nearest thing to it was grandpas recipe book to make fireworks and the CIA bulk of dirty tricks. The highest level of recipe remotely similar to weal’s allegation was a joke recipe. The timestamps indicate that this material appeared on Alan’s computer after the Search Warrant was obtained, therefore someone ‘hacked’ his computer and planted the material. The NZ Police admitted this and withdrew this from evidence.

    • Really Nic you’re quite the narcissist, do you really believe that anyone else amongst our readers believes you’re anyone other than Alan Gordon Thomas? Arrin was a bit of a mug for not realising how fucked up you were when he sent that confidential Ballarat Health Service email to you…….Big mistake posting it all over the web Alan, although Andrew Rowe made an even bigger mistake handing the email to Arrin Wislang, or was it his wife Bridget? Who know’s but we will get to the bottom of it all Alan. God is to be found in the detail Alan, not the crap you’re posting. But as they say “give a man enough rope…………”.

  • According to Alan Thomas, a Douglas Weal lied in court, and this was the only basis for the conviction. Alan’s strategy at the moment is to Convict Douglas Weal for perjury and then appeal the conviction.

  • This is old news, Alan Gordon Thomas has served his time and deserves the opportunity to get on with his life free from harassment of the blog

    • Nice idea Alan, how many monikers do you need to use, it must be hard keeping track of them all, especially with that head injury of yours?

      Now you nasty little hypocrite why don’t you apply the principles you espouse above to your own site;

      Now crawl back under your Rock cunt and don’t bother attempting to comment again, we have already obtained what we needed……..oh and thanks for being so obliging.
