Embattled former policeman David Walter will fight on at the Cairns Magistrates Court on October 30 and 31 against trumped up assault charges laid by two court protective officers.
On Friday Walter summonsed the Magistrate, Jane Bentley, to appear as a witness. This Magistrate unlawfully jailed him for one month for contempt in May this year.
So far his defence has eight witness statements which allege Walter did not assault the two burly protective officers when they threw him to the floor and handcuffed him. The Court Protective Service is a private company owned by Queensland Police Service, contracting to Queensland Courts.
Walter said the police have tried to have the charges dismissed but so far had failed to do so.
He is calling on all patriots to attend the court to witness the judiciary in action.
It seems the Queensland Chief Magistrate will preside over the hearing.
Walter will challenge the validity of the State Government and the court system which he says can only hear civil law.
“I will question her and point out she only has the authority and actions at civil law,” Mr Walter said.
When Walter challenged Magistrate Bentley’s and the court’s authority at the original hearing, she refused to allow the questions and eventually jailed him for one month charged with contempt.
He said Beattie sealed the Electoral Act 1992 for ‘My Government’ as ” I will demonstrate they cannot hear anything as they are paid by Peter Beattie in ‘ My Government’ with no people inside Queensland’s Constitution as in force 2002.”
“It is held to Civil Law or the Common Law.”
Former Labor Premier and architect of the 2001 Queensland Constitutional changes, Peter Beattie, now has a plum Government job as Commonwealth Games head on the Gold Coast.
Last week Walter was fined $750 for not correctly filling out a form attached to his bankruptcy proceedings.
He said he thanked the Magistrate for ‘convicting’ him which now allows the case to be filed in the High Court.

Observers from the court gallery swear 12 statements in registry immediately after Walter was removed from the Magistrates Courtroom
The exposure of the corporate governance of Australia has seen retired policeman David Walter unlawfully jailed for his research by Cairns Magistrate, Mrs Jane Bentley.
Comments received by Cairns News from onlookers at the court on Monday clearly indicate the Magistrate provoked David Walter, after she told him he had three minutes to state his defence to a spurious and vexatious bankruptcy charge.
It seems the Magistrate talked over Walter whenever he tried to present his extensive defence, soon expiring his three minutes.
She then allowed him five minutes to speak in his defence, but any mention of the corporation was spoken over by the Magistrate.
Clearly Walter was becoming more frustrated because of the stymieing efforts of the now vocal Magistrate in what eventually became a slanging match.
Walter picked up his books from the bar table, then accidentally dropped them throwing the remainder back onto the table.
The federal Department of Public Prosecutions barrister present to prosecute Walter allegedly for not declaring a collection of pet birds in his assets, stood looking rather stunned as Walter advised him of the legitimacy of the legal profession.
He told the Magistrate, who was in the throes of departing the court room, that the premises belonged to the real Crown and she had no business there.
He said he too was leaving but two burly Court Protective officers blocked the doorway from the court.
Walter told them they too had no authority and to get out of the room. Before disappearing through a rear door, Mrs Bentley told the two officers to arrest Walter.
On his re-appearance at 11.30am a manacled Walter in the witness box was told of the new charges concocted by the Magistrate during the recess.
She ordered he undergo a mental assessment, then be held in the lockup charged with contempt, assault and other erroneous misdemeanours.
The ensuing mental health report said Walter was not delusional or psychotic, but “held some idiosyncratic views regarding several judgements from higher courts.”
In Corporation-speak we can only assume this means he knows exactly what his argument is about and judging by the Corporation’s knee jerk reaction, he is completely correct but was now ready to be admitted to the re-education camp.
Walter will remain incarcerated for a month then he should be eligible for parole, no doubt on the proviso he not mention the antics of the Corporation.
His family has held off filing a Writ of Habeas Corpus until a legal representative can be briefed next week.
In the meantime however he will have to take part in a video hook up from Lotus Glen prison at Mareeba, to defend the dodgy charge of failing to report his bird-keeping hobby.
This is Australia folks and we advise our many overseas readers contemplating a holiday down-under to have a rethink, otherwise you might end up like this highly esteemed policeman unable to defend himself against a totally broken, corrupt and unlawful corporate legal system.
One reader suggested the magistrate should undergo a mental assessment for referring to the ‘busted-arse judicial process’ as a “justice system.”
He said although Australia had been overrun by Chinese, “it does not mean we have to adopt their legal system too.”
