The SST reports:
Controversial blogger Cameron Slater is again under police investigation, this time for identifying on his website a primary school teacher accused of sex crimes against children.
And Slater last night stepped up his name suppression campaign, telling the Sunday Star-Times he was set to post the names, phone numbers and addresses of judges who award name suppression without “good reason”.
Slater is already facing five charges of breaching name suppression orders, after he published on his website the names of several high-profile New Zealanders before the courts, but whose identities were suppressed.
Justice Minister Simon Power said Slater’s threats to expose the personal details of judges on his website were “probably not helpful”.
But Slater said our officers of the court were making “improper” decisions and he wanted to take a stand.
“These judges are the people perpetrating the expansion of the original suppression laws beyond what was envisaged by parliament,” Slater said. “They are trying to rewrite the law by judicial meddling.”
I’ve often joked with Whale that he will beat me in the ratings, even if he has to do it from D Block!
He seems to be well on the way to both aspects
In the Alexa ratings, Gotcha is ranked 124th most visited site by NZers. The previous weeks it was 118th and 112th. Kiwiblog is 122nd, and previously 121st and 117th, so in the weeks ending 17 January and 24 January, Gotcha was ahead of Kiwiblog in the Alexa rankings for New Zealanders.
As for making D Block, I’d say declaring war on Judges will help achieve that goal!Tags: Cameron Slater, contempt of court, name suppression, Whale Oil
