The Dirty Downloader Case

The case of the Dirty Downloader in Palmerston North has had an interesting turn of events, events that make the decision of Judge Grant Fraser simply apalling. Keeping Stocks explains why:

We have been made aware of the identity of the Prominent Palmerstonian- from several independant andunrelated sources. We were also made aware of something yesterday which, working in the ECE sector, we found rather chilling. After much internal debate between me, myself and I, we decided that this needed to be put in the public domain, but in a manner which would not breach the Court-ordered suppression.

So we ask this question; did Judge Grant Fraser know that the Prominent Palmerstonian’s business premises share the same street address as a pre-school? We believe that this is a very important question in the context of Judge Fraser’s decision to allow name suppression. This is indeed a case of public interest.

Ponder this; do the parents who send their children to the pre-school involved have a right to know that its neighbour had an unhealthy interest in children? For us, that’s a no-brainer; we can’t think of a clearer case where publication of the defendant’s name IS in the public interest.

There are many other questions and allegations about the relationship between the Judge and the defendant swirling around, questions that need to be answered, in the meantime with the information that Keep Stock has posted I think the Crown prosecutor should be in court immediately seeking an urgent appeal to the sentence and suppression in this case.

Bear in mind that the Dirty Downloader came to the attention of the FBI. His activities are not nothing, theya ren’t something to be swept under the carpet.
