Convicted fraudsters repayments, if any

Katherine Raue made this Official Information request to Ministry of Social Development

Response to this request is long overdue. By law Ministry of Social Development should have responded by now (details and exceptions). You can complain to the Ombudsman.

From: Katherine Raue

Dear Ministry of Social Development,

Regarding the report at this link: http://www.times-age.co.nz/news/huge-jum...

Please provide the following information:

1. Was the person named in this report required by the Court to repay any of the $77,800 she was convicted of defrauding the Ministry of?

2. Did the Ministry seek payment of any of the $77,800, either through the Court process or in any other way?

3. If so, how much was the person named in this report required to pay?

4. How much if any of the $77,800 has been repaid?

5. Did the Ministry make any attempt to seek repayment of any of the $77,800, and if so, how much was sought and how much has been paid, and if not, why not?

6. Please provide confirmation of a substantial payment (as much as $50,000 we believe) from the Ministry of Social Development or another related government agency to the partner of the person named in this report, who was found to be jointly guilty of this fraud, regarding a claim by him of alleged mistreatment in foster care several years ago?

Yours faithfully,

Katherine Raue

I established Transparency NZ over eleven years ago in response to the corruption and injustice I witnessed on moving to this area - evidence of these allegations has been well documented now in the local newspaper and can be provided to anyone who thinks these comments are extreme or inaccurate in any way. My personal interest in this particular matter is that the partner of the person named in this report violently attacked me in my home in front of a number of witnesses, and was the catalyst for a very remarkable series of events which are certainly in the public interest, as is the question fo whether or not any of the $77,800 was ever repaid and if so, how much. Legal evidence, Court documents, etc, are at this link and others on this site, and they show indisputable that the NZ Police have acted corruptly in pursuing an ongoing campaign of vexatious and malicious litigation against me, most of which has been spectacularly unsuccessful, as some of the most recent links on this site prove:

It seems that if you're mates with the right people parliament will cover up your fraud, and collude with the Courts and the Police to ensure you get a slap on the wrist if you get caught. Michelle McGreal and her partner committed one of the biggest recent benefit frauds, but inexplicably, and atypically, there was no application to the Court for a reparation order, and the Ministry is covering up information regarding any repayments at the highest level - which is particularly interesting in light of the involvement of McGreal's partner Michael Francis Murphy in a prosecution for perverting the course of justice against me, Katherine Raue (a quick Google search will bring up further information - and EVIDENCE regarding this matter).

Information regarding Murphy and McGreal's fraud is at this link: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/wairarapa-time...

Here is the most recent response from the Ministry to the OIA request for ALL INFORMATION regarding McGreal's repayments, it was received on 2 November 2014:

"Dear Ms Raue,

The Ministry has reconsidered your request for information about Ms McGreal’s repayment of monies owed resulting from benefit fraud. We can confirm that the Ministry is recovering the monies owed by Ms McGreal as a result of the fraud.

Regards,

Official and Parliamentary Information Team

Ministry of Social Development"

THIS IS A PATHETIC AND INADEQUATE RESPONSE TO THIS REQUEST WHICH WAS FOR ALL INFORMATION REGARDING THE REPAYMENTS!!!

FURTHER COMPLAINTS HAVE BEEN MADE TO THE OMBUDSMEN - WHO ARE CLEARLY COMPLICIT IN THIS BLATANT CORRUPTION AND TOTAL DISREGARD OF THE OFFICIAL INFORMATION ACT!!!
