I must confess that I have not given what I believe was sufficient attention to some of the matters that Kate Raue had raised with me in the past mainly I suspect because the matters appeared to be far too complex and involved and I tended not to see any relevance in some of the complaints that she was making.
On a recent visit to me however and after spending some time looking at documentary evidence that she showed me, I largely changed my view and believe that there genuinely are matters of concern that do need to be investigated.
I have not got to the bottom of all the matters Kate Raue complains about but there is one instance that does seem to suggest that there has been fraud at the Carterton Community Centre which has diverted funds designed for one purpose deliberately to another.
If the above set of circumstances is accurate then there is no doubt whatsoever that there was a fraudulent use of the monies received from the Tindall Foundation. There had been no budgeted allowance made for personal grievances. This can be seen from the budget column in the expenditure part of the accounts where an amount of only $220 was allowed for the twelve months involved. A payment of $6000 was needed and this was paid directly from the charitable donation.
I believe that the affairs of the Carterton Community Centre are in disarray. There is currently an application before the High Court to have them wound up because of insufficient numbers. There are numerous other complaints as well about the way in which members of the public including members were excluded from meetings etc. This letter does not purport to address all those issues but I am deeply concerned after having seen the information supplied to me by Kate Raue that monies received for one purpose be used for an incorrect purpose.
I should add that according to Kate Raue there was possibly legal advice given to the people running the Carterton Community Centre that they should not make personal greivance payments in the way that they did. This is another matter that may need to be looked into because it would make the payments even less appropriate if they were done contrary to legal advice.
I appreciate the fact that earlier complaints may have been thought to be ill-founded or frivolous or for whatever reason were not properly investigated but I believe that there actually does exist hard evidence to suggest that a reopening of the investigation should be made with urgency. As I have said the Community Centre and its funds are currently subject to a High Court Application.
If it is more convenient for you to do so I would be happy to act as a go-between between yourselves and Kate Raue so that I can request further details from her.
The Financial Reports and the Minutes of the Carterton Community Centre Inc (scroll down at the link to view them) show that thousands of dollars were taken from organisations that had nothing to do with the particular organisation which was the subject of the "personal grievance" - a "personal grievance" that was never ever referred to the Employment Tribunal or Mediation Service and was not a formal personal grievance at all - that's theft - and it was one of two such "Personal Grievance" payments being made at the time, and there was a long history of similar fraud and malfeasance.
After receiving no response to that letter whatsoever, and no reply to my own enquiries to the police and Mr Daniels about the matter, and after the instigation of the campaign by local police to corruptly target me with a large number of charges which were an abuse of power and malicious and vexatious litigation, Mr Daniels wrote the following letter to the Police Prosecutor:
This is the unbelievably arrogant response:
Sent: Wednesday, 26 April 2006 12:01 p.m.
To: Ken Daniels
Subject: Kate RAUE – Your letter dated 18 April
To assist me in doing so can I please have a bit more detail regarding points 1, 2, and 5.
I suspect that point 2 relates to REYNOLDS retrieving his car but may also relate to MANSON.
I suspect point 5 relates to Mayor McPhee’s unique way of dealing with a noise complaint that received so much publicity. I am not aware of Kate being in any way related to that.
I don’t remember your letter dated from 2004 but my apologies if I’ve failed to respond. I suspect it will have been put on one of Kates many files and may be hard to locate. Any such allegation by Kate against the Community Centre management would take a very low priority from a Police perspective. Her allegations about the Community Centre have mostly proved unfounded, emotive and simply not credible.

None of our complaints have been investigated, they've all been repeatedly and corruptly covered up.
Note Johnston refers to "point 1" in the second paragraph of his response but never mentions it again? He knows perfectly well that the "threatening text messages" refers to the messages to me from Masterton prostitute Rachel Betteridge and her husband, which say "You need a bullet" and "Watch your back" among other things. Police refuse to charge Betteridge or her husband in spite of statements from two JP's and the indisputable evidence that Betteridge and her husband had sent the messages, and instead charged me with sending unspecified messages to Betteridge! Of course I was acquitted, and it was established that Betteridge was lying, but only after a lengthy trial and months of extreme stress to me, and ridiculous cost to the taxpayer, all because the local police prosecutor and his live in lover, Court deputy registrar Liz Harpleton, think it's funny to play little games like this in the Masterton Court.
Point two relates to Constable Cunningham smashing the shed doors after Larry Manson's lies to police.
Point 5 relates to ex Mayor Gary McPhee's violent, vicious, cowardly home invasion, committed by him and his Council mate, they weren't the noise control officers and had no right to smash their way into the local flat where the occupants were innocently and quietly cooking their dinner - let alone assault the innocent occupants! Johnston knows perfectly well that I witnessed this attack, and tried to make a statement along with the other witnesses and victims!!! This corruption is outrageous!!!
Another letter from Ken Daniels to me dated 25 July 2007 says this:
"I am pleased at the dismissal of a number of charges against you. That is as it should have been in my view. It was always apparent from an early stage that for whatever reason you were a "lightning rod" for Police attention in Carterton. This was, in my view, most unfair to you and unwarranted Police attention resulted in unnecessary charges being laid. On reflection it would have been far better if the Police had been able to discuss any concerns they had directly with you so that those concerns may have been laid to rest in a much more appropriate way." . . . "It is clear that there were many unanswered questions from the Police. We never did get full details from them regarding some of your cases. I have been unable to go back to "the matter of the 2004 letter" simply because of the volume of paperwork and the length of time that it would ave taken to have researched that matter. I do know however that numerous letters were sent to the Police and discussions held with them to try and get some satisfaction in relation to the allegations that they made against you. As I have said, those enquiries were not always met with success."So instead of investigating crimes, police are busy plotting how to shut down my websites, sending each other emails like this one, which was sent by Sgt Keving Basher to Sgt Murray Johnston on 7/9/2010:
Kevin Basher---07/09/2010 07:47:45---Something needs to be looked at regarding RAUE using her 'Blog" to make statements regarding our staff .
The IPCA is corrupt, and anything but independent!
