IT IS A GOOD TIME… to stop the lies, coverups, witch hunts, and Law Makers that could care less what WE THE PEOPLE think or want.  Drain the swamp, stop Our Law Enforcement Agencies willfully breaking Our Laws while covering crimes up of the rich and shameless.

One set of Laws for everyone, One Justice System For Everyone.

Brierley caught with ‘large amounts’ of child abuse material, say police after arrest at Sydney airport

New Zealand businessman Sir Ron Brierley has been charged after allegedly being found in possession of child abuse material, New South Wales police have said.

In August, Sydney detectives began an investigation into the possession of child abuse material in the local area, and “following extensive inquiries”, 82-year-old Brierley was stopped at Sydney international airport at 6.30am on Tuesday by Australian Border Force officials.

NSW police said in a statement: “The man’s carry-on luggage was searched before the contents of his laptop and electronic storage devices were reviewed, which are alleged to have contained large amounts of child abuse material.”

The man, from Point Piper, was taken to Mascot police station and charged with six counts of possessing child abuse material, police said.

Brierley has been granted conditional bail and is scheduled to appear at Downing Centre local court on 10 February 2020.

The tycoon retired from his final boardroom role in June this year at the age of 81 following a career as a corporate raider that stretched back to the 1960s.  He was made a knight in 1988, for services to business management and the community.

He founded his first major enterprise, Brierley Investments, in New Zealand in 1961 using money raised from a stock tips newsletter he ran.

In the 1980s, his attention turned to Australia.

Over the following decades his corporate vehicles – Industrial Equity Limited and Guiness Peat Group – launched a series of attacks on some of Australia’s best-known companies, including brewer Carlton & United and lotteries group Tatts.

His aggressive shareholder activism towards boards, which frequently involved public attacks on under-performing directors, shook up what had been a relatively genteel and clubby business community.

New Zealand police refused to comment on whether they had played a role in the investigation.

Created Stickers Of Children Being Abused????

Members of Child Abuse WhatsApp
group arrested in 11 countries

“Some group members had even created “stickers”… similar to emojis – of children being abused.”

Spanish police say 33 people have been arrested globally in connection with a WhatsApp group for images of child sex abuse and other violent content.

The many “extreme” images shared in the group had been “normalised by most of its members”, the force said.

Arrests were made in 11 different countries across three continents, but the majority – 17 – were in Spain.

Many of those arrested or being investigated in Spain are themselves under 18, including a 15-year-old boy.

In Uruguay, police arrested two people – one of whom was a mother who abused her daughter and sent images of this to the group.

In another case, a 29-year-old man was arrested for not only downloading the images, but also encouraging other group members to make contact with young girls – particularly migrants who would be unlikely to go to the police.

How were they tracked down?

Spain’s National Police began investigating the group more than two years ago, after receiving an email with a tip-off.

They then enlisted the help of Europol, Interpol, and the police in Ecuador and Costa Rica.

As well as Spain and Uruguay, arrests were made in the UK, Ecuador, Costa Rica, Peru, India, Italy, France, Pakistan and Syria.

What did the group share?

In a statement, the police said the group shared “paedophilic content, sometimes of extreme severity, together with other content that was legal but was not suitable for minors because of their extreme nature”.

Some group members had even created “stickers” – small digital images that are easily shared, similar to emojis – of children being abused.

The police also said all of those arrested in Spain were men or boys, and that they come from a mix of social and cultural backgrounds.

One of these men had fled his home in Italy when a search was carried out.  He went to a relative’s home in Salamanca, unaware that it was Spain’s National Police who had ordered his arrest.

The operation will now focus on identifying the children being abused in the images.
