Minster of Courts
24 January 2007
Dear Mr Burns,
On behalf of Hon Rick barker, Minister for Courts, thank you for your letter on 15 January 2007 regarding your concerns with the Family Court.
I have placed your letter in front of the Minister who has noted your comments.
Carol Murray –Brown
Private Secretary –Courts
I am still waiting so I sent this email this morning ;
Dear Mr Rick Barker
Can you please tell me as the whether your response to the directive from the United Nations regarding a father whose complaint to the United Nations Human Rights Committee has born fruit?
Don’t you remember;
"The UNHRC says the delays in police investigations and court proceedings have denied him a fair trial and violate Article 14(1) of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, which was signed by the NZ government in 1979. The present government now has 90 days to answer this charge."
I am still awaiting for your response to my 15 January 2007 letter about my extreme difficulties I am experiencing in the Family Court.
Your laborious inertia on such a sensitive and important matter does raise serious concerns as to your credibility and suitability as a competent Minister of Courts?
