Modern Day Which Hunt ~ Over with, we Hope! ~

by Ernest Bywater

Copyright© 2019 by Ernest Bywater

True Story: This is a true account as a report of the abuse of office by a number of Australian people and how they cause trouble for people who dare to believe in things different to them. They use the cry of 'Child Porn' to scare people into accepting what they want. The worst part of this is the government greatly changing the law but not publicly saying they did. This hasn't ended well, but as best as can be. The people and events in this book are real with names are changed for legal reasons.

Originally released in September 2016 as Modern Day Witch Hunt then updated due to events as they happened. This 3 March 2020 edition is heavily revised due to the end of all of the Court cases covering the criminal charges and civil case. This is the absolutely final version.


This is written in the third person as it’s a report of true events and information. I’ve tried very hard to keep my emotions out of this report on the events and this reporting style helps with doing that.

Some of the content is repeated as it’s in chapters about the content and also in documents relating to the case. Also, now the cases are over some details that were previously withheld due to legal concerns relating to an ongoing case have now been included in this account.

Court Staff: The Magistrates and most of the Court Staff were all very courteous and professional in their interaction during this matter, and they dealt with the various cases as best and speedily as they could in light of their work load and the actions of the others involved in the case.

The only exception I make to that statement is the regular Registrar of the Court due to how that person granted the search warrant on such tenuous reasons and later refused to allow me to have copies of several important Court documents despite offers by me to pay for the copying.

Police Officers: The majority of the Police officers involved in the cases were professional and polite in their interactions during the course of this matter. However, the Police officer in charge of the case was very different in his behaviour, attitude, and handling of the matter. I don’t know if the multitude of the Police delays were due to planned actions or incompetence or just plain lack of interest in dealing with the matters that caused the four and a half years of delays in having all of the matters resolved. Some of the reasons for the delays do tend toward malicious actions by the Police case officer and some of the senior station staff.

Legal Aid is not free, but is a loan because it’s based on property and not a person’s income. So owning a hovel means it all has to be repaid as against not owning any property means the government pays it all.
