Very few in the media came to my aid. The Saturday immediately prior News Limited reported on its CEO John Hartigan and his accommodation of Ms Gillard's demands. Ms Gillard's apparent extortion leading to News Limited's reports that week warrants close examination by police.
My lawyer Bruce Burke and I had arranged for the Federal Court files
including 2082/96 to be delivered to the Federal Court's Brisbane
Registry for inspection - that was before the court files disappeared.
After 2UE banned any Fairfax staff from assisting me to examine the
files I asked a journalist friend from another organisation to attend at
the court as my agent and inspect the files. He did.
On 17 September 2011 The Australian published this story.
That story was quoted in the Fairfax actions against me and by Ms
Gillard in the parliament. It was not helpful in uncovering the truth.
One week before I lodged the formal complaint with Victoria Police
that led to Operation Tendment I sent this further question to Prime
Minister Gillard. She did not respond.
