Simon Gittany’s girlfriend Rachelle Louise sues


How sad and how desperate is this? if anyone can remember this woman… She is/was Simon Gittany’s new girlfriend up until as far as I know he was sentenced in February to a minimum of 18 years in prison for murdering his fiancee Lisa Harnum by throwing her off the balcony of a Sydney highrise.

(Remember HOW the cash came from the MEDIA and she didn’t go to court so she could have her REACTION to sentence filmed for big dollars)

Well she is now suing someone because it was suggested she was a ex stripper/dancer blah blah and was wildly delusional! (I’m sure she was not delusional)

I’m suggesting her boyfriend was the best cash cow she had ever come across with no pun intended!

Here is all the stuff we have covered so far

So she does not accidentally find this site and see dollar signs, rather than post in FULL her case SO FAR !  here is the link folks. MMMMmmmmmmmmmmmmm

Simon Gittany’s girlfriend Rachelle Louise sues Daily Mail over claims she is an ex-stripper and ‘world’s most deluded woman’

The girlfriend of convicted killer Simon Gittany is suing the Daily Mail for defamation over claims she is the “world’s most deluded woman” and a former stripper.

Rachelle Louise has protested Gittany’s innocence since he was sentenced in February to a minimum of 18 years in prison for murdering his fiancee Lisa Harnum by throwing her off the balcony of a Sydney highrise.

Ms Louise is suing the Daily Mail Australia over two stories published after his sentencing, which refer to her both as his “stripper girlfriend” and a “former stripper” who staged a “bizarre protest” outside Darlinghurst Court.

“A day in the life of world’s ‘most deluded’ woman,” said the second article .”Can she really believe balcony killer is innocent?”

The Daily Mail said it was “at the prison gates” when Ms Louise arrived to visit Gittany in Sydney’s Parklea Prison after he was jailed for a maximum of 26 years with a non-parole period of 18 years.

“Despite overwhelming evidence that 40-year-old Gittany had killed his fiancee, she continues to protest his innocence and has given two TV interviews in which she claimed there is no way he could have murdered Ms Harnum,” the report said.

Ms Louise, who is represented by experienced defamation barrister Roger Rasmussen, is suing the online news site for claiming that she is a stripper and a former stripper, as well as for suggesting she is the “world’s most deluded woman”.

She also says the articles suggest she is a “women [sic] of loose morals” and is deluded “because she believes convicted killer Simon Gittany is innocent”.

District Court judge Judith Gibson said the “stripper” meanings should be pleaded as alternatives rather than arguing both at the same time.

“Is being called a former stripper less defamatory than being called a stripper?” judge Gibson said in a judgment on preliminary issues.

“Should the imputation of being a former stripper be pleaded as a fall-back imputation? There is still utility in having fall-back imputations of lesser severity.”

Mr Rasmussen had argued that the articles also conveyed that Ms Louise was “stupid” because “[a]ny person who believes in the innocence of Gittany in the face of those assertions must be stupid”.

Judge Gibson said Mr Rasmussen had added in his submissions that a person can “wake up” from a delusion, while “stupid is forever”.

“Judging by Mr Rasmussen’s submissions, he considers “stupid” is a more permanent state of being “deluded”,” Judge Gibson said.

Judge Gibson said this was “contrary to the dictionary definition of ‘stupid’, which generally connotes intellectual limitations rather than being deluded on a permanent basis.”

She said the articles did “not convey an imputation that the plaintiff is stupid in the sense of having intellectual limitations”.

Judge Gibson ordered Ms Louise to pay the Daily Mail‘s costs for the preliminary hearing.

The District Court case will be heard by a jury.

Northern Territory to launch online public sex offender register-Please follow suit

Convicted sex offenders in the Northern Territory will soon have their name, image, physical description and whereabouts posted on a government website.

Legislation announced today has been named Daniel’s Law after Queensland teenager Daniel Morcombe, who was murdered in 2003 by a convicted sex offender on parole.

Although details have not been finalised, it was believed all of the information published about a sex offender would be publicly accessible.

The NT Criminal Lawyers Association slammed the idea, saying naming and shaming made it harder for offenders to rehabilitate without making anyone safer.

NT Attorney-General John Elferink said it would be the first website of its kind in Australia and it was expected to be launched next year.

Western Australia has an online sex register but access has several tiers of restrictions.

It is not yet clear how approximate the location information for the NT register will be. Mr Elferink said the website would include the “regional whereabouts”.

We truly hope that the introduction of Daniel’s Law will prevent another family going through the pain and grief we experienced following Daniel’s death.

Bruce and Denise Morcombe

“We’ll list them by geographical region reasonably close to where [people] live. It is not a system of exact addresses,” he said.

“They will be able to see who the sexual predators are in the community. They’ll be able to recognise the sexual predators and protect their children.

“We believe that the public’s right to know takes precedence over the privacy concerns for serious sex offenders.

“The initiative will allow individuals and families to familiarise themselves with important details and be more vigilant about named serious sex offenders living in and around the area.”

Daniel’s Law modelled on Megan’s Law in US

The NT chose to pursue its own legislation after a proposed national sex offenders register was knocked back at the recent Council of Australian Governments (COAG) meeting, according to Mr Elferink.

“From our perspective if it’s not done at a Commonwealth level then we’re going to do it in the NT and proudly so,” he said.

“Does a government make this information available or not? The answer from the NT is ‘yes, yes we do’.

“There is no guarantee a website would have protected Daniel. We know we should pull out all stops as a society and as a community to create for parents an environment to protect their children.”

He said the NT system would be modelled on Megan’s Law in the United States – the informal name for sex offender registration and community notification laws, which have been passed at US federal and state levels.

However, unlike Megan’s Law, Daniel’s Law will not list offenders’ exact address.

The Attorney-General said the Government had not yet decided on the definition of “serious sex offender”.

“We’ll create a definition which is appropriate and then have further flexible arrangements to make sure the right people are placed on our serious sex offenders website.”

He said parents were in a better position to protect their child when they were armed with detailed information.

“While the Northern Territory Police will continue to track and monitor around 200 sex offenders in the community, this tool is designed to deliver information to the community about the most serious offenders in an easy, user-friendly way,” he said.

‘You’d hate to be the last state to have a register’

Daniel’s parents Bruce and Denise Morcombe, who have been calling for the introduction of a national child sex offender register, said they hoped the NT register would spread across the country.

“Of course sometimes one can imagine the paedophiles and the predators on the NT sex offenders register may well not want to be in the NT any longer,” Mr Morcombe said.

“They may migrate to other states and territories.

“You’d hate to be the last state to have a sex offenders register up and running. You’re going to get truckloads of people you don’t want in your state.”

The couple, who were in Darwin for the announcement, said they commended the NT’s decision.

“The NT has taken a leadership step,” Mr Morcombe said. “They were the first to do so.

“This is for ordinary Australians. It is to get the good people at arms length from the predators.

“We want protection for our kids.

“Daniel’s Law we are confident will assist in the mission to make sure kids of Australia are safe.

“We think it is breathtakingly simple but at the end of the day will make a massive difference for children right around the country.

“I am sure the feedback from that will migrate to other states and they’ll say, ‘Why not us?'”

Daniel disappeared when he was 13 while waiting for a bus at Woombye on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast in 2003.

His remains were found in bushland eight years later.

His convicted killer, Brett Peter Cowan, had a long history of sexually abusing children.

He had been arrested and sentenced in 1989 for two years in jail after molesting a boy in a public toilets.

Four years later, while living in a caravan park in Darwin, Cowan attacked a six-year-old boy. He later pleaded guilty to gross indecency, grievous bodily harm and deprivation of liberty.

He was sentenced to seven years’ jail and released on parole four years later.

‘Terrible idea will turn people into vigilantes’

Public online sex registers make it harder for offenders to rehabilitate, increase the chance they will re-offend, and do not make anyone safer, according to NT Criminal Lawyers Association president Russell Goldflam.

He said the NT Government’s proposal was “terrible”.

From our perspective if it’s not done at a Commonwealth level then we’re going to do it in the NT and proudly so. Does a government make this information available or not? The answer from the NT is ‘yes, yes we do’.

John Elferink, NT Attorney-General

“Laws like this have been tried in the US, mainly over the last couple of decades,” he said. “They don’t result in anyone being safer or the level of recidivism being decreased.

“There are some real costs. They are expensive to run but more importantly is they can get in the way of people being rehabilitated.

“This can result in people going underground instead of engaging with those who can assist them to stop reoffending

“In a place like the the NT we expect anyone who is going to be put on the register will leave the NT and go somewhere else. That doesn’t help anybody. It just makes it harder to keep track of them.”

He said the system would further stigmatise, prejudice and stereotype convicted sex offenders.

“A very significant range of laws operate to protect the community from people who may be at risk of reoffending,” he said. “There is already a register, already a provision for for identifying offenders, already laws to detain serious repeat sex offenders.

“Where these laws have been passed in the US – and they have in some places included exact places where people live – vigilantes have murdered people on the list or people they believe are on the list, even if they weren’t child sex offenders.

“The Attorney-General says this will make people be more vigilant.

“Our concern is this will make more people into vigilantes.”

Abdul Numan Haider shot dead by anti-terrorist officers


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

No wonder the authorities are asking for calm after the shooting death of a Abdul Numan Haider. I must say that it may make any other young impressionable people being drawn into the filth that is called ISIS and their so-called goals to THINK AGAIN.

Police have every right to defend themselves and ask questions later. Think about what would have happened if this bloke walking into a doctors, or school, or office? It is NOT ON

Officials name Abdul Numan Haider as man shot dead by anti-terrorist officers

Wed 24 Sep 2014, 2:17p

Senior law enforcement officials have named the 18-year-old man who was shot dead after stabbing two officers from the Joint Counter Terrorism team outside a Melbourne police station last night.

Abdul Numan Haider was the “person of interest” who was expected to attend an interview at the Endeavour Hills Police Station when the incident occurred, senior law enforcement sources confirmed.

Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Ken Lay said Haider, who was under investigation and had his passport cancelled, was allegedly seen last week with an Islamic State flag.

“There’s certainly information that he was present at the shopping centre in the last week or so with the flag that appeared to be an ISIS flag,” Chief Commissioner Lay said.

“It’s not an offence but clearly it drew our attention to this person and we had a conversation with this person.”

Haider, whose family are from Afghanistan, had also been associated with the radical Islamic group called Al-Furqan.

It is understood he had recently moved away from the group.

Based in Springvale, in Melbourne’s south-east, associates of Al-Furqan were the targets of terrorism raids by Victoria Police and the Australian Federal Police in 2012.

Chief Commissioner Lay said Haider attacked a police officer who tried to shake his hand outside the station, and then stabbed another officer, about 7:40pm (AEST) on Tuesday.

“When our police members have approached this young man, one’s extended his hand to shake his hand and the response has been he’s been stabbed in the arm,” he said.

“The attacker’s then turned on the second police member and stabbed him three or four times in the body and in the head.

“The first wounded member has then shot and killed the young man.”

One of the injured officers is from the Australian Federal Police (AFP) and the other is a Victoria Police member, they were both rushed to hospital.

Chief Commissioner Lay said both police officers required surgery.

The ABC has been told that Haider had made threats against the Prime Minister, however AFP Acting Commissioner Andrew Colvin said no specific threats were made.

“This is early stages of an investigation … What I will say is and what I can be very confident on is there were no specific threats made,” he said.

Haider’s car is parked at a childcare centre next to the police station and the area is locked down.

Natalie Morales, who works at the childcare centre, said staff were unable to contact parents this morning to tell them the facility was closed, because the contact lists were in the building.

“That can happen anywhere around Australia, unfortunately it happened next door to the childcare I work at,” Ms Morales said.

“Even if it happened during the day, we have a pin code that only the staff and families know, so no-one can access the centre even if we had children in the centre.”

Abbott speaks to family of injured officers

Speaking in Hawaii while en route to a UN Security Council meeting in New York, Prime Minister Tony Abbott said the Melbourne incident was “nasty” and showed the threat from extremists was real.

“Obviously, this indicates that there are people in our community who are capable of very extreme acts,” he said.

“It also indicates that the police will be constantly vigilant to protect us against people who would do us harm.”

Mr Abbott said he had spoken to the wives of both police officers involved.

Chief Commissioner Lay said the stab wounds to the police officers were significant and required surgery, but that both officers were in a stable condition this morning.

“Our AFP colleague underwent surgery overnight for some significant injuries, he’s come through that surgery it appears pretty well, he’s in a serious but stable condition,” Chief Commissioner Lay said.

“Our Victorian Police member has had quite a significant stab wound to his arm, I understand he’ll undergo surgery today to repair some ligament and nerve damage.

“So the physical injuries will heal quick enough and obviously we need to think about the psychological stuff and give these people as much support as we possibly can.”

Victorian Premier urges community to unite

Victorian Premier Denis Napthine said it was important that the incident did not divide the community.

“Let me make it very, very clear, one of the greatest strengths, one of the greatest assets we have here in Victoria is our harmonious, diverse, multi cultural, multi-faith community,” Dr Napthine said.

“We need to preserve and protect that. We need to enhance and build on that.

“We shouldn’t let a single incident divide that. We need to show each other respect, be tolerant and remain united.”

He said authorities were working together to ensure the safety of the community.

“It is imperative that we do all that we can to reassure all members of the Victorian community that everything is being done to protect our safety and making sure that our community continues to work together as a whole Victorian community,” Dr Napthine said.

Islamic leaders criticise police investigation

Leaders of Melbourne’s Islamic community have criticised police over their investigation into the fatal shooting.

Gaith Krayem from the Islamic Council of Victoria said police were quick to jump to conclusions.

“I was disappointed with the immediate press conference police held last night. It was held three hours after the event, and they drew conclusions immediately,” Mr Krayem said.

“There needs to be a proper process as there always should be when police are involved in a fatality.”

What we do know is that there’s an 18-year-old young man who is dead this morning, there are two police officers in hospital, there is a family who is grieving.

Gaith Krayem

Mr Krayen said the public needed to reserve their judgement until a full and objective investigation has taken place.

“Immediately, individuals such as this unfortunately are given these labels of a radical, or a terrorist, or an extremist,” he said.

“Unfortunately, because of the environment we’re in, as soon as you label somebody like that, people don’t want to then question what occurred.

“We don’t know really what happened when this young man arrived at the police station.

“What we do know is that there’s an 18-year-old young man who is dead this morning, there are two police officers in hospital, there is a family who is grieving.”

Redfern stabbing

The daughter of former New South Wales premier Neville Wran has been charged with murder over a stabbing death in the inner Sydney suburb of Redfern.

Harriet Wran, 26, was arrested along with Michael Lee, 35, in Liverpool on Wednesday afternoon.

Overnight, both were charged with murder, attempted murder and aggravated break and enter.

They will face court today accused of killing Daniel McNaulty, 48, who was stabbed to death on Sunday outside a public housing block in Redfern.

Police said the arrests were made after a red hatchback was found in the Sydney suburb of Waterloo.

On Tuesday night, Lloyd Haines, 28, was also charged with murder over the stabbing.

A 42-year-old man who was critically injured in the attack remains in a stable condition in St Vincent’s Hospital.

Mr Wran, who led NSW from May 1976 to July 1986, died in April.

Harriet Wran is the second youngest of the former premier’s five children.

THE daughter of former premier Neville Wran was last night charged with murder over the stabbing death of a man at a Redfern unit block.

Harriet Wran, the youngest daughter of the former Labor state leader, who died at the age of 87 on April 20, was yesterday confirmed by police as a person of interest in the murder of 48-year-old Daniel McNulty and the stabbing of another man, Brett Fitzgerald.

She was charged early this morning with murder, attempted murder and aggravated break and enter.

She will appear in Liverpool Local Court today.

MURDERED MAN A TRUE GENTLEMAN, FAMILY SAYS

TOP LEGAL EAGLE ON THE CASE FOR HARRIET

NEVILLE WRAN’S WILL LEFT A $40m FORTUNE

Fronting media this morning, Mr Terracini said bail would not be applied for.

“We are not going to make a bail application tomorrow,” Mr Terracini said.

“It will be a five minute job, we turn up, bail will be refused, won’t be applied for.”

The former University of Sydney student, and goddaughter of Kerry Packer, handed herself into Cabramatta Police Station just after 5pm, along with a 30-year-old man, Michael Lee, who was also wanted for questioning.

Lee was also charged with murder, attempted murder and aggravated break and enter, and will appear at Liverpool Local Court today.

The shock twist came just hours after 29-year-old Lloyd Edward Haines yesterday faced Parramatta Local Court for the murder of Mr McNulty on Sunday night.

Senior police sources confirmed to The Daily Telegraph that Wran, 26, and a 30-year- old man of Asian appearance were wanted in connection with the double stabbing at the Walker St unit block.

In a statement announcing Haines’ arrest, police said they were looking for a man and woman also believed to be inside the apartment at the time.

McNulty died at the scene shortly after paramedics were called about 7.45pm, while Mr Fitzergerald was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital with multiple stab wounds. His condition is stable.

Wran was wearing jeans and a blue shirt at the time of the arrest, and had her brown hair worn up, police say.

Detectives yesterday went to the family home in Woollahra in search of Wran, but neither Harriet or her mother Jill, Mr Wran’s wife of more than 30 years, were home, leaving the youngest child Hugo, 23, to try to contact his family.

“I’ve been informed, that’s all, sorry I can’t answer any questions,” he told The Daily Telegraph last night.

Jill Wran was last night ­organising to return to Sydney from Brisbane to support her daughter.

Harriet and her younger brother Hugo, the youngest of Mr Wran’s four children, read poems during a state memorial service for their father, who died aged 87 after a long struggle with dementia.

The siblings sat side by side in the front row of the Sydney Town Hall for the service for their father, who served as NSW premier from 1976 to 1986. Harriet read a Shakespearean sonnet at the ­funeral, following speeches from former prime minister Paul Keating and Bob Carr.

Haines, who handed himself into police, did not appear in the dock of Parramatta Local Court and his bail was formally refused on charges of murder, attempted murder and aggravated break and enter.

His case returns to Parramatta Court on October 9.
