Just desserts

December 7th, 2012 at 3:00 pm by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

A cyberbully who threatened to name and shame a woman who wanted posts removed from his website has had the tables turned on him.

Henricus Geradus Van Helmond, 52, of Woodville had asked for $2000 when the woman told him she had legal advice about deleting her posts, leading to him being charged with blackmail.

Justice Joe Williams in the High Court at Wellington told him there was a certain poetic justice in doing to him what he had threatened to do to the victim. …

Van Helmond threatened to report her lawyer to the law society and said he would name and shame her through the website with personal information unless they paid $1000 each to himself and another of the website’s administrators. …

Van Helmond has made headlines before when he claimed his Twitter account was hacked to send death threats to former MP Sue Bradford.

To put it mildly, Van Helmond has serious issues and problems.

Whale has more on this case.

    Fresh out of court, after promising the judge that he had deleted everything he is now threatening more people with his cyber bullying.

    Henk van Helmond actually needs to go to jail…he simply doesn’t care about courts and judgements against him.

    In just two days since appearing for sentencing he is back at it.

    Yep. This guy should be in jail.

    Mr Farrar, how about emailing me. I have more information on this dutchman. He has, as Whaleoil says already breached the orders from the court. I want to show and tell you more. I cannot find your email anywhere!

    Henk van Helmond, is a nasty piece of goods. I have been abused at by his tongue. Keep away from him, he is dangerous.

    where does it say he made death threats on Sue Bradford? He was charged with that, but not found guilty.

    Settle down Tom. Bradford deserves criticism for blatant hypocrisy and her ridiculous political positions, but you won’t find a rational rightie suggesting she deserves death. She has a right to speak, and a right to be criticised for what she says.

    It’s the irrational righties I’m concerned about.
