Whistleblower lawyer exposes legal and judicial corruption

LAWYERS WITH THEIR NOSES IN THE TROUGH HAVE BEEN EXPOSED! You will discover how they formulate their usually exorbitant accounts! Hopefully Queensland corruption is next!


This courageous lawyer – James Johnson – needs our support while he takes on the corruption within the legal fraternity & judicial system ..

On 21 May 2012 the Victorian Government is conducting an inquiry into the absence of professional standards in the Australian (legal) profession, and at the broad intersection of the legal profession with the upper benches of all three branches of State and Federal government (benches that these days look like little more than an exclusive lawyers club)

This unprecedented and history making trial starts at 10.00 am on Monday 21 May 2012 & will be held at 55 King Street, Melbourne.

This hearing (sub-named Michael McGarvie Legal Services Commissioner v Harold James Johnson) will be the biggest Australian whistleblowing, corruption exposing, media event of 2012.

48 yo Melbourne-born journalist, whistleblower, political activist & human rights lawyer http://jamesjohnsonchr.wordpress.com will lead a Victorian Government Tribunal (and an A-List Roll Call of some of the very good, many of the very bad, and lots of the very ugly of Australias ruling legal elite) through a thorough investigation into the absence of professional standards in the Australian legal profession. The investigations will include the broad intersection of the legal profession with the upper benches of all three branches of State and Federal Government in Australia.

A whos-who of many of Australias most powerful lawyers, including current and past State and Federal parliamentarians, ministers, judges, bureaucrats and barristers have been summoned to attend for questioning by the Tribunal. [ details to be published here, shortly.]

This is an open invitation to the media and to the public to attend the hearings. Come and, look, listen, laugh and learn as leading Australian lawyers, lawmakers, governmen and governwomen (the Australian lawyerocracy elite) are put on trial and compelled to answer questions that they have been avoiding, for generations.


A Quick Introduction to Lawyerocracy on Trial

This must rank as one of the more singularly stupid examples of unelected government officialdom gone wrong, misusing public monies and regulatory powers to pursue a political agenda of silencing a truth-teller and a whistleblower.

Mr Michael McGarvie, the privileged younger son of former Governor of Victoria, RichardMcGarvie, and himself the former Chief Executive Officer of the Supreme Court of Victoria and the current, bicephalous Victorian Legal Services Commissioner and Chief Executive of the Legal Services Board is doing his utmost to become the first Victorian government official to be jailed (for up to 2 years) for criminal reprisals against a whistleblower in violation of section 18 of the still untested Victorian Whistleblower Protection Act 2001).

James Johnson is highly regarded for his very high intelligence, and his impressive natural abilities as lawyer, economist, journalist, playwright, filmmaker and raconteur. James is a whistleblower on government and lawyer corruption, a constitutional human rights solicitor and barrister of more than twenty-years good standing, including many professional and corporate appointments, including 3 years as Chairman of the Law Institute of Victorias GST Taskforce and 5 years as a monthly columnist for the prestigious Victorian Law Institute Journal.

Mr Michael McGarvie and his team of more than a dozen of his staff are illegally harassing Mr Johnson for a 3rd time, trampling on the most fundamental of human rights, by pursuing yet again the same set of malicious, criminally defamatory, false claims of professional misconduct that were levied against Mr Johnson over 3years ago, and investigated and dismissed by his office and delegates 2¾ times previously.

Ironically (and damningly) at the same time Mr McGarvie and his team are refusing to comply with two sets of Supreme Court rulings (obtained by Mr Johnson in late 2008 and again in 2009) where the Supreme Court confirmed (contrary to the wishes of Mr McGarvies Office, and the wishes of his disgraced predecessor Ms Victoria Marles) that his Office was legally obliged to investigate Mr Johnsons whistleblowing reports on the criminal behaviours of his false accusers.

It seems that:

  • in blatant contravention of UN and international human rights laws and declarations, far older and ancient English laws of human rights going back to 1215 and 1689 (Royal British laws recognised in the United States and even in places like Guantanamo Bay, but not in Australia),
  • in violation of the Australian Constitution, and concepts of justice, democracy and
  • and in violation of the rule of law

Australias elite twenty-first century lawyers (3 of whom remain amongst our current 7 High Court of Australia judges) have abolished or treated with ignorance and contempt (over Justice Michael Kirbys most powerful dissent) centuries of constitutional human rights to equality under the law. They have done this, in order to create this unique Australian paradise where Australian litigation lawyers are not only more equal than other Australians, but are elevated to a privileged status above and beyond the law. Why? And how can this be legitimate?

Come along to the Lawyerocracy on Trial on 21 May 2012, 55 King StreetMelbourne:

  • To find out if the High Court, and corrupted legal regulatory god fathers like Michael McGarvie, Victoria Marles and Steve Marks have all but abolished professional standards for lawyers.
  • And to find out if they can use their regulatory powers and run a protection racket protecting bad lawyers from investigation, and even from public criticism.
  • And to find out if they can get away with taking their protection racket to a new level by defying Whistleblower Protection legislation and Supreme Court rulings, abusing their government powers and public funding to engage in serial reprisals to silence whistleblowers such as James Johnson (all the while not going after so many other whistleblowers such as former legal regulator Kate Hammond, or former Attorney-Generals or former Supreme Court and High Court Judges, and all the while defying Supreme Court of Victoria orders by actively covering-up and refusing to even investigate open and shut cases of criminality and corruption against James Johnsons false accusers).

About Editor, cairnsnews

One of the few patriots left who understands the system and how it has been totally subverted under every citizen's nose. If we can help to turn it around we will, otherwise our children will have nothing. Our investigations show there is no 'government' of the people for the people of Australia. The removal of the Crown from Australian Parliaments, followed by the incorporation of Parliaments aided by the Australia Act 1987 has left us with corporate government with policies not laws, that apply only to members of political parties and the public service. There is no law, other than the Common Law. This fact will be borne out in the near future as numerous legal challenges in place now, come to a head soon.

  1. I thought you may be interested in my story/book exposing severe judicial and legal corruption in my court case.www.helentsigounis.com

  2. Thank you for your support. I learned several years ago (after nearly 2 decades as a top 1% legal adviser to government, ASX 200 and Fortune 500 corporations – imagine that) that, especially in Australia, there is not much you can do when government officials are hell bent on misusing and abusing their powers to pursue illegal (and as in this case) criminal ends.

    All you can do is maintain your personal dignity and standards, stay calm, and well clear of being falsely accused of stooping to their levels, and give them the maximum opportunity to incriminate themselves on and for the official records and history books.

    As was shown with an illegal, secret, government-agency-only hearing on 17 May 2012 (“a day [and a half] before the trial”) to exclude 57 government sources of evidence all embarrassing to the Victorian and Australian governments and the lawyerocracy that owns them, the house of administrators known as VCAT has teamed up with the house administrators known as the Victorian Legal Services Commissioner (and a cartel of six or seven equally lawyer-dominated publicly-funded government agencies) to protect their own and to prosecute me for falling victim of their corruption and then having the audacity to whistleblow about it.

    This was followed by a 21 May 2012 kick off to the trial, a surreal hearing (start of a 3 day trial) before 2 Victorian administrators with no powers to readjudicate what happened in a federal court (a real court, and a real judge) 4 years ago – interfering in my private affairs where I was dragged into that federal place in my “private capacity” and not in any professional capacity and there was certainly no “misconduct” by me – or else the federal judge who must surely be presumed to notice such things would surely have said something about it, surely? That 21 may 2012 hearing was abruptly adjourned for 3 months, when the red faced and shaken administrators couldn’t cope with my constant reminders of their lack of power, the criminal intents of the phony legal regulator (and the Victorian Government Ombudsman 2009 Annual Report to Parliament blowing the whistle on that), their own basic lacks of professional standards (again well documented within government and the legal profession) – or having more than a 100 members of the public (past and current victims of the same corrupt bureaucrats and lawyers) sitting in the public gallery watching them incriminae themselves on and for the official records and history books.

    And this followed by a 6 July 2012 hearing where expecting a crowd of 100 – 200 in the public gallery, these administrators deliberately booked a room with room for less than 50, turned off the microphones (all the better for the media and the public not to hear them) and stationed 3 armed guards at the door to turn away the next 100 or so members of the public who sought admission to what is supposed to be a place of “open, fair, public justice for everyone” (according to the politbureau brochures and wall prints and door transfers).

    Obviously they will need more than 3 armed guards at the door to bar public access next hearing. Otherwise we will see more ugly spectacles of members of the public being grabbed by armed security guards and dragged out of the (public) hearing room – while the corrupt government administrators pretend “this is not happening” “this is not happening” and “I see nothing” (you see they were focused on their political orders and political agenda. And there was nothing in their orders for the day telling them how to deal with an armed assault on a member of public by one of their own armed troopers – no doubt terrified of losing his job, his mortgage, his home and his family, for failing to carry out his orders).

    6 July 2012 and about 60 years worth of crimes committed by 4 out of 4 government officials in under one hour. A pretty big corruption rate even for a place as disgraceful and administrators as disgraceful as these. I am told that 9 members of the regular Victoria Police were called to reinforce the VCAT troopers. But I only saw 5 of them (held the door open for Troopers #4 and #5 I did) as I left level 2 of the building.

    One of this gang of 4 bureaucrats (on behalf of more than a 100 of their mates back in their government agencies) was a contractor bought in from the Victorian Bar – a barrister of over 35 years, including decades as a defence barrister for noted Victorian criminal defence lawyers, Gallbally (“let me tell you about my last rape”) & O’Brien. So he had a pretty strong sense of the crimes he was committing and the due process that were not occurring. Hence his two bouts of incessant red face an/ white face / sweaty face and full body shakes. All duly noted, both times by the media and public in the gallery.

    Next “hearing” (where the administrators neither listen or see me, so I’m not sure I should be using that word as it seems out of place) is scheduled for 3 September 2012, at 10 am 55 King Street, Melbourne. Need to get in early, preferably be invisible, to have a chance of a seat. And pack a hearing aid and a protective set of clothing (and or an early, invisible etc bodyguard) in case you too fall foul of the armed arm of the law for daring to assert that you have any sort of public right to attend an open to the public hearing. What kind of country do you think we live in?

    In this country we have all the rights in the world, except of course when the government says so, which is of course whenever we might like to exercise them. Kind of like all of us being multi-millionaires except we aren’t allowed to spend any of the money – but it’s the thought that counts.

    I wonder how many decades worth of more crimes these Victorian bureaucrats will have the gall to commit next time (3 September 2012) – on the brave assumption that their responsible Minister, Attorney-General Robert Clarke (Victorian MP for Box Hill) is willing to give them ‘a next time’.

    Win, lose or draw and quartered, this is going to make an explosive documentary: “Lawyerocracy on Trial” using the actual tribunal transcripts and to be released on 21-12 -2012. Everyone who attends the hearings (even once) will have their names included in the credits and will get to walk the red carpet with me on opening night in Melbourne.

    All part of my plan to shine the spotlight on this corruption at the heart of our legal and government system – and show that we don’t have to take it. We never did.

  3. Just desire to say your article is as surprising. The clearness on your post is just great and i could think you are knowledgeable in this subject. Fine with your permission let me to snatch your feed to keep up to date with imminent post. Thank you 1,000,000 and please keep up the enjoyable work.

  4. I too am experiencing difficulties with the judiciary, and about to face it head on. Corrupt conduct has been shown on committees on body corps but a at CHOSE not to investigate. Is this to protect solicitors who supply false and misleading information. Members of qcat who give decisions that they know will prevent a hearing from being held fairly. It goes on from today

  5. Marlene McBain-Miller

    My name is Marlene McBain-Miller and I am the victim of an Australian court doctoring my audio court recording. This doctoring of my court recording was done to cover up the inappropriate conduct of a magistrate during a hearing for an application for an intervention order. On the 5-9-2012 the television show A Current Affair featured a story on the plight of my family my family ( there is much more than was shown ). The behaviour of the man shown in the footage was a direct result of the actions of the magistrate during the hearing. Jennifer and Jordan Nash, Barry Hart, myself and I believe many other innocent Australians have fallen prey to our treacherous courts doctoring court recordings. No government or judicial department I have contacted regarding the doctoring of my court recording has been willing to conduct a proper investigation into this matter.
    I will continue to fight against our corrupt courts doctoring of recordings and will expose our courts vile criminal activities. I am not the keeper of the courts dirty little secrets.

    • Re court transcripts:

      The practice of altering court records has been occurring for many years especially in Queensland. Our many legal system activists have documented much evidence where vital comments or parts of oral evidence have been deleted or altered. This corruption is usually not picked up until transcripts have been purchased at great cost. To counter court corruption, many litigants now tape record the proceedings, however the Chief Justice ruled recorders illegal in Queensland courts several years ago because litigants were comparing the records and finding many mistakes.

      It is hartd to get a recorder into a court where ever one has to pass through metal detectors. Nevertheless ssome more innovative people have managed to get important cases recorded.
      The Queensland LNP government has fixed this problem by outsourcing court recording services to India by video or audio link.
      This is a real feather in the cap for the state Attorney General.-Editor

  6. Hi James Johnson,

    I have read your courageous act against corruption as a lawyer and victim. As I am faced with a case of corruption within a reputed company in Australia, I am lost and have limited resources in exposing the dirty scandals without proper assistance and advices. Hence, I wish to seek the external help to redress my grievances. Should I am lucky to find the right person in helping me and have read the post, please email back to giftamour@gmail.com.

    Hope to receive your email soon.

    Things are horrible in WA, many recordings are edited, files edited for appeals, Judges/lawyers fabricating evidence about child abuse and peoples property, getting worse by the day. WA Government Colin Barnett, Attorney General Michael Minshin complicit and covering it up.
    Many speaking up, but none heard, Jail these criminal bastards.

    • Hi John Donaldson, Finally someone who knows about the corrupt judicial system in Western Australia. I too had my transcript doctored. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. A Registrar of the District Court has committed fraud by falsely documenting that I had prepared a sealed order of the Court – an order that did not reflect the actual orders of a Judge in an attempt to reverse the orders of that Judge. The law does not exist in WA at least as far as my appeals are concerned. The judges refuse to apply the law which leads to endless appeals even to the High Court. The most popular reasons for dismissing applications for leave to appeal is “no reasonable prospect of success” which essentially does not provide a real reason and means nothing. Judges ignore criminal offences which arise during hearings, such as falsified documents, intimidation of witness and perjury. This is a lawless state and I’m up for the corrupt lawyers costs. But the lawyers are not as corrupt as the judges. The lawyers are not even required to give oral submissions as the judges do all the work for them. It’s criminal. If you wish to contact me for further exchange of experiences my email is: rosariakezic@aapt.net.au.
      (Rose Kezic)

      • Hi Rosaria Kezic, I have lodged formal complaints with the Federal Police, and Australian Crime Commission. If you think your judge have breached a Federal Act (maybe Crimes Act sect 35 & 36), please do the same. Send complaint to Federal Authorities imo. Then tell the judge you have done so.

  8. Marlene McBain-Miller

    God bless you James Johnson. I am pleased you are continuing in your fight for true justice and I wish you the best. I would like to recommend a book by Dr Helen Tsigounis, ‘The Red Back Web’, which is a shocking insight into corruption within Australian courts. I posted a reply in March 2013 and I am still fighting judicial corruption. I and my children (two of us were almost killed) were only a few of the many victims of the judicial doctoring of court recordings. To see more on this despicable corruption go to the facebook page ‘Australians against Courts Doctoring Court Recordings’. We have only scratched the surface.

  9. There is a cartel of corrupt lawyers on the central coast of nsw acting in collusion with magistrates and judges.

  10. Marlene,

    I know this was posted a long time ago, but I completely know what you’re saying is true. Recordings are often being altered in our Courts. Lawyers know this. ICAC has become another toothless tiger because of how strictly the definition of corruption has become, and only allowed to investigate “serious corruption”. All corruption is serious… What happened to Martin Luthar King Jrs quote “An injustice anywhere threatens justice everywhere”.

    James, I would have supported you more if you didn’t start to gender your fight so much and team up with so many of the crazy men’s rights groups that behave like immoral misogynists. Both women and men are suffering because of corruption, and also many children. It does leave you fearing your life once you start to realise just how dirty the system is.

    I made the mistake of trusting a very corrupt lawyer and his father, and now I live in fear of what they’re going to do to me and my children next with impunity from their fraternity.

    More needs to be done because Victoria is completely out of control. Those that have come into contact with the legal system just don’t have any faith in fairness or our legal system anymore. Forget justice, it would be great if just the law was followed and there was proper accountability and scrutiny of lawyers that are criminal. There isn’t though, not unless those lawyers insist on reporting themselves and confessing, which few do. Even some lawyers that have done that and requested to be removed from the roll have been met with an unwillingness to allow them to or investigate them. They stick together like glue, and lawyers are well and truly above the law to the point it has become impossible to trust them. They bully and abuse their power against the weak as a matter of course, break the rules and laws because they know they’re above them.

    There’s a group started on legal abuse syndrome where many Victorians have come together to help each other through the injustices they’ve experienced. There are so many of us, but until there are reporters brave enough to report on it, and we have politicians that are brave enough to take this issue on (unlikely give they’re mostly lawyers), the powers enjoyed by lawyers are only going to increase and the corruption will worsen.
