Judge Barry accepted my explanation and agreed that the second and third appointments which Yeoman insisted on should have been made in Masterton and not Porirua. I explained to Rimkeit that I did not need to be detained in a "hospital" for the assessments, I just needed the appointments to be in Masterton or else assistance with the cost of getting to Porirua (not unreasonable requests by any means). I explained that I was unhappy because I had been locked up for four days unreasonably, on top of being locked up wrongfully already regarding the joined indictment in February last year (details at the link above and this link and others, like this one.)
But Dr Rimkeit insisted that I should be detained in 'hospital'.
After getting no support or advocacy regarding these matters from the Wairarapa Mental Health Services, I requested an email address last week for Dr Wolfgang Kure, so that I could discuss these matters with him. This is the response I received, and a rather damning indictment it is:

I would hazard a guess that he is referring to Betty Knott, the local Health and Disability Advocate, in a classic pass of the buck. The is not an acceptable response to a request for mental health advocacy and support, and is perhaps why we have such high rates of suicide in the Wairarapa, because it is just typical of the lack of such support and advocacy and the failure of the existing agencies to deal with the matter.
The Court can't have it both ways: If I was "unwell" when I was alleged to have perverted the course of justice, and was allegedly still so "significantly unwell" as recently as June, and if it was not in the public interest to prosecute me for that charge because of the reasons given in the Crown memorandum, and the claim that it will fuel my alleged paranoia and delusions and delay and prevent y recovery, then it certainly is not in the public interest to continue with these corruptly laid charges which are being called tomorrow. Watch this space for an update tomorrow in the interests of Transparency in New Zealand.
