(Her Honour Judge Jan-Marie Doogue)

On 13th November 2016, I sent an email to you. It was an official complaint. It complained that there appears, or otherwise I allege there has been a breach in the protection of New Zealand’s democratic process, where Judge Hastings has convened a Fines Court on behalf of the Ministry of Justice (Fines) and made statements during that hearing forecasting that he is of authority to control another hearing the same, in January dealing with the matter of fines that have been filed as due to be paid against my name.

I have had no reply to my complaint to you to acknowledge that it has been received. I believe it reasonable under the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990 to expect a reply so that I can best prepare for the coming hearing. In one hearing before Judge Hastings he imprisoned me where I did not expect I could be imprisoned. The matter then was that he sought no update on matters that had been stood down for a considerable period, jailing me on old information without seeking any review from either me or any other authority such as probation.

On the last 2 occasions before His Honour I have been wary of the imprisonment where any right of the above argument was shown no regard. I extend my belief in the democratic process that I am bound to complain before the hearing in case I could anticipate any repeat.

Surely if my defence is worthless it will not matter what I say and Judge Hastings can do whatever he pleases within any frame of authority he decides is appropriate to the circumstances.

Yours sincerely,
Benjamin Easton
