Jesus Fucking Christ

From NZPA:

Former Rotorua CIB chief John Dewar was committed for trial in Hamilton District Court today – but all details around the case have been suppressed.

At the end of a three-week depositions hearing, Judge Thomas Everitt ruled this afternoon that Dewar, 53, had a prime facie case to answer on four separate charges.

However, the judge continued and extended suppression orders relating to the nature of the charges and all evidence presented.

Dewar was remanded on bail to appear next month.
For those of you who haven't been following the Louise Nicholas case, John Dewar was in charge of the investigation in the 1990s and behaved in a very unprofessional manner:
The woman making the allegations, Louise Nicholas, says she sought help at the time of the incidents, but was ignored.

In 1993 she went to Rotorua police station intending to make a formal complaint, but was advised by then CIB chief Detective Inspector John Dewar not to make a written complaint.

Now she believes he manipulated her in order to protect his police colleagues.
I have no inside information on these charges whatsoever, no idea.

  3. Are these the same ones he was charged with last year? If so the information's online pretty openly, including on the NZ herald website.

    You can read any of these charges anywhere on the media websites - it is only now that they are surpressing the details. Thanks for the concern Dave but I am really past caring about being politically correct. Your call though Maia.

  5. It does not take a brain surgeon to figure out whats going on...

    in 1993 he investigated the Nicholas case and did such a bad job he was reprimanded.

    in 2004 a woman accused him of having group sex with women along with Brad Shipton

    in 2005 he was charged with obstruction of justice over the Nicholas investigation.

    in 2006 he has been charged again with unknown charges.
    (all of this info is already in the public domain)

    I think we all know the nature of those charges.

    It seems some decectives used their posistions to create a kind of sexual playground. This is police corruption at its worst.

  8. Thats not all Dewer did either,

    I think this can be posted as it doesnt break suppression.
    John Dewar has been stood down from his job as a HR Manager for the St Johns Ambulance in Hamilton. Dewar has previously been found guilty by a police disciplinary tribunal of making a sexist and improper remark to a woman police officer while employed by the police. He asked her whether her late release from the investigation hunting Auckland serial rapist Joe Thompson was because she was "bonking" the boss - and was the subject of at least three inquiries by the Police Complaints Authority (PCA) or the police commissioner.

    Dewar resigned from the police and a good verbal reference was given by Clint Rickards.
