    I see Slater has lost yet again in his attempt to not have to name his sources in the Bloomfield case.
    NZHerald 5:09pm Thursday – Slater’s ‘journalist’ protection fails by David Fisher

    He had during the case tried to introduce into evidence a letter from a so called independent police inquiry that said the hard drive was found not to be stolen.
    What i want to know is how the hard-drive belonging to Bloomfield taken without his knowledge can be ruled as not having been stolen property?
    Slater had his rat-pack contact and record Bloomfield to try and get him to make threats against his witnesses while secretly recording him without his knowledge to use in the case to prevent him having to name them.
    Bloomfield’s so called veiled threats in a transcript of that conversation sound nothing like they are even hinting at a threat.
    He also tried to say Bloomfield getting a restraining order against someone sending him malicious text messages was a way to intimidate that person he suspected might be one of Slater’s sources.

      Slater is a series of contradictions. He goes to the police because Hager obtained a copy of some data from his hard drive but defends to the hilt his obtaining of data from Blomfield’s hard drive.

      The recent Keith Ng post almost made me feel sorry for him.

      But he lacks a moral compass, at least as far as anything which personally involves him.

        Could almost feel sorry for him but he’s an odious individual and it’s becoming clearer exactly how odious. If anyone cares to look at the much maligned Pete George’s blog he seems to have got under the skin of certain individuals judging by the way his personal details have been splashed all over Laura finem not to mention the trolling commenter flooding some threads…

          Yep over the past few months my respect for Pete has grown considerably. And the link between LF and WOBH is something that requires further investigation.

      • NZJester 2.1.2

        I’m hoping to see a good story about this tomorrow by someone here on The Standard comparing the two cases (Slater/Bloomfield) & (Hager/Slater) side by side for comparison.
        I want to see what all those Slater supporters/apologists will pull out of their nether regions in his defense.

    The fifth anniversary of the Pike River Mine disaster was marked today at the Blackball Museum.

    A small ceremony, though one mother was still too grief stricken to say her son’s name out loud at the roll call.

    Malcolm Campbell’s parents traveled from Scotland for the anniversary…
    Malcolm’s father, Malcolm said..

    “”he would continue to support the fight for justice.

    All it would take is for someone to say sorry and that hasn’t happened yet. My son thought that New Zealand was the number one mining country in the world and it turned out to be worse than third world,” ”

    All it would take is for someone to say sorry….

    This coal-miner’s granddaughter has been thinking of these families today.
