Help bring them all to justice

Most people these days believe that high level political corruption is commonplace in Australia without any personal experience or evidence of it. I am not aware of anyone else who has had their life destroyed by it and who have documentary proof of it dating from the 1980's to the present day. Not only do I have the evidence but also have the PTSD which it has caused.

It should be plain to see from the dates on these documents that this story has taken many years to investigate and to reveal. These are some of the faces of high ranking individuals directly involved in and those who have been covering up the criminal theft and destruction of my houseboats. Long ago Bob Crawford was president of the Wakool Shire. He described the houseboats as a Botel and he wrote publically that these vessels were a major project in NSW.  He admitted that his council had not been able to deal with my application and he wanted the state planners to take it over. They did not do so and instead resorted to fraud and theft to hide their failings and to remove the boats from public view.

These were some of the most powerful people in the land. Click on each face to reveal who they are and see what is written there.

  1. In 1988 I constructed two vessels on the Murray River, both were located at Barham in NSW.
  2. Captain John HENSFORD was the regional manager of the NSW Maritime Services Board which had control of my vessels. On September 14 1988 I received a letter from HENSFORD reaffirming to the Wakool Shire that he gave me permission to complete construction of my normal vessels as part of a commercial marine development. He also wrote that my vessels were not part of a prospective botel.
  3. On or about June 27 1990 I received a letter purporting to be from the Maritime Services Board of NSW advising me of a notice to remove two botel units from the Murray River. This notice was allededly signed by HENSFORD.
  4. Six months later I saw an article in the Barham Bridge Newspaper describing the removal of my vessels by government agents.
  5. On or about September 1 2017 I applied through freedom on info for imformation relating to the removal of my vessels. i received advice from Roads and Maritime that the information was not recorded.
  6. I also sought a review which also concluded that the notice had not been properly recorded.
  7. Hence, the notice is an invalid document, the process was fraudulent & the agents seized my vessels illegally.
  8. One of my vessels is now located on the banks of the Murray River near Swan Hill.
  9. I want my houseboat returned to me.                                                                                                                               Sworn 04/04/2019


Here is a photo taken from the bridge at Barham NSW of four boats situated on the Murray river in 1988. I wanted to build only one large dome shaped houseboat for my family.  We began in 1986 and four long years later Maritime and council officials destroyed the venture. They resorted to using a fraudulent NOTICE document. Their actions were criminal and yet today the police and anticorruption agencies are reluctant to act. We called our commercial marine business Waterhouse Enterprises. It involved the building and selling of houseboats. A separate project was named BOTEL and it concerned the renting of botel units. Government officials treated it as a motel which was clearly a land based development. 

Both boats were intended to be private houseboats however the smaller one was built to demonstrate the feasability of the new tourist concept. Ten years ago I stumbled upon some online information which I was not aware of as the developer of the Botel Project in 1987. It seems that Smithson Planning from WA were working for the NSW government and advising council about an Environmental Impact Statement related to the Botel project. They disguised their involvement by referring to it as a BOATEL located on the Edward river whereas it was actually related to my BOTEL on the Murray River. This recent letter from the council confirms the Smithson claim is a lieSmithson it seems were also working on media and planning issues for another project in Swan Hill, the Murray Downs historic precinct. That project included a marina and a poker machine licence for a new club over the river from Swan hill in Victoria. 

Poker machines were outlawed in Victoria in those times. more....

  1. I sought approval to build, sell and rent houseboats on the Murray River at Barham NSW from numerous authorities
  2. I registered two business names WATERHOUSE ENTERPRISES and BOTEL.
  3. Wakool shire council determined they had control of the approval process
  4. On the 14 January 1987 I made a formal application to the Council to construct the houseboats on a commercial basis.
  5. On or about 19 February 1988 Bob CRAWFORD admitted his council had not dealt with it.
  6. Council's register of Development Applications shows that my BOTEL application was numbered 1/87 and that it was refused. 
  7. The entry is INVALID. It was not refused. 
  8. The Register shows a fraudulent entry which is numbered 13/88 for the same development application. It was made sometime in 1988 and it remains undetermined according to the register. 
  9. When council allegedly refused my application in August 1988 they sent a fraudulent letter which identified my application as numbered 13/88.
  10. The application process was fraudulent because John HENSFORD approved it as a commercial marine development.
  11. I want my application fee of $450 refunded. 
  12. The fraudulent entry 13/88 in the Register reveals that CROWN LANDS and I were joint applicants in the project. 
  13. I was not made aware of that fact at the time. 
  14. Terry Mecham from Crown Lands Office in Deniliquin NSW had verbally agreed to a special lease of a section of the Murray River in return for 5% of the profits from the rental venture which I called a Botel. 
  15. I payed $110 fee for the SPECIAL LEASE application which was made to guarantee tenure of the land required for our project. 
  16. This was done to prevent any STATE MINISTER from terminating my existing TENANCY AT WILL ie my Mooring WS012.
  17. Following council's alleged formal rejection of my project I instructed my Solicitors MORRISON and SAWERS from Victoria to lodge an appeal against the council decision in the NSW LAND AND ENVIRONMENT COURT
  18. I want my fee returned and the scammers prosecuted.


Here is the Botel Environmental Impact Statement which not made public by Wakool council. The Shire President wtote that council had it but NSW Hansard records reveal that Mr SMALL MP accused Waterhouse of not provding it which forced council to reject application.

Regional Television TV8 Special Newshour Report on Botel mislead its viewers. It reported that BPA represented the residents and they opposed the Botel because it was to be sited behind the School of Arts hall. It was to be sited upstream adjacent the caravan park/boatramp and NOT behind the hall. This PETITION supported the botel at the that location and refuted the BPA and council objections.

These Press reports about Botel were blatantly inaccurate and biased towards council and BPA opposition.

Botel was not DESIGNATED
