Wilful abuse of process by the Ministry of Social Development:


A recent Minute issued by the Social Security Appeals Authority is scathing in its criticism of the Ministry of Social Development. In fact, it is so scathing that it is hard to imagine a more damning indictment of a government department.

In addition to the recent reported criticisms regarding the numerous breaches of privacy of their clients, a recent Minute from the Social Security Appeals Authority shows that the Ministry has recently been severely criticised by the SSAA regarding its habit of using fake names for its Benefit Review Committee members since at least 2015.

The Minute from the Authority further castigates the Ministry for a "memo" which the Ministry sent "In confidence" to the Authority regarding current proceedings. Such memorandum are required to be sent to all the parties, in the interests of open justice. The Authority has demanded that a copy of the memo be provided to the plaintiff and a copy of the Minute be served on the Chief Executive personally.

Likewise, the principles of open and natural justice require judges to be real people and use real names, and the idea of secret court processes and secret judges is entirely repugnant, and demonstrates a damning lack of integrity, and most concerning arrogance by the Ministry in this blatant abuse of process.

The Social Security Appeals authority has described it as an abuse of process in their Minute, and ordered the Ministry to provide the 'memo' which was sent "in confidence" to the Authority to be provided to the plaintiff, and be brought to the attention of the Chief Executive.

The actions of the Ministry are outrageous, as the Minute from the Authority confirms, and that the arrogance which is evident in Mr Van Ooyens actions is most concerning in light of the fact that the Ministry was warned against the practise over two years ago.

Article 14 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights forbids the use of secret courts and faceless judges.

Hi Gregg

A Cover name might have been needed because Auckland investigator had been known to have followed a Judge home and potted the Judge for what he called careless driving. Now this was a high court Judge and lets face it it will come to a time when they have to be dropped off at court by the police, to do their Duties, if people known to have been flashing guns in city streets start following them home to intimidate them. Like Key was guarded, so will the judicery have to be.

it is just not safe out there and the same buggers naming and defaming us and also threatening us get away with it, then what the hell is NZ coming too?

Gone are the days when we can consider ourselves being safe to walk home in the middle of the night and feel safe. And we are talking about a person going about the business that is usual in their life, to be allowed to drive around safely like most others can OR get body gaurds for them to be driven back and forth because we have very intimidated and dangereous a/holes out there.

its hard to know from where I sit if I would like to use my real name in my job I used to do anymore.

Thanks for the update.
