Merlin the Magician and Diamond Joe Gutnick – Magically Insolvent

‘Diamond’ Joe Gutnick’s company insolvent after ‘dishonest’ transactions

The Federal Court has ordered that a company associated with Melbourne business figure “Diamond” Joe Gutnick be wound up and declared insolvent amid allegations of millions of dollars of dishonest related party transactions.

The Federal Court on Wednesday appointed liquidators to the publicly traded mining company Merlin Diamonds Limited after a provisional liquidators’ report showed it had just $1331 in the bank and liabilities of $13 million.

Judge Michael O’Bryan said a liquidator would allow for investigations into a number of inter-company loans, related party transactions and “round robin” payments that “have the appearance of uncommercial and dishonest transactions”.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission’s had requested a liquidator to be appointed after an investigation into Mr Gutnick, one of Australia’s best-known business figures. The ordained Rabbi was once a regular on the BRW Rich 200 list and a benefactor to many Jewish charities. As president of a stricken Melbourne Football Club during the 1990s, his financial support kept the club alive.

However, The Age and The Sydney Morning Herald revealed in a series of stories in 2019 that ASIC was investigating what happened to $18 million in loans that allegedly saw money flow from publicly listed companies controlled by Mr Gutnick to a private company that he was also closely involved with.

In a scathing judgment on Wednesday, Justice O’Bryan said Merlin “does not appear to take its legal obligations seriously,” had expressed “no contrition” for various corporate transgressions and faced a “strong prima facie case” that it had contravened the Corporations Act, particularly when it came to two related companies called Chabad and Axis.

Melbourne’s J-AIR Blaming the Homosexual Community for Covid-19

Jewish broadcaster J-AIR airs interview stating “the pandemic is an exact designer drug … that will remove … problems … in the form of homosexuality and gays”

Jewish radio station J-AIR, dedicated to combating hate, broadcasts an interview that vilifies gay men.

n Monday March 30 2020 Melbourne’s Jewish radio station J-AIR 87.8FM broadcast their regular syndication of the Tamar Yonah Show, which included an interview with Rabbi Mendel Kessin.

The full episode of the March 30 Tamar Yonah Show was first posted here but has since been taken down. A backup copy of the podcast can be heard here.

The description of this episode of the Tamar Yonah Show states (in part):

Internationally known lecturer on current events and the Bible, Rabbi Mendel Kessin, joins Tamar Yonah and talks about the meaning behind this worldwide pandemic, what we are supposed to learn, and DO, in order to merit seeing the coming of the Messiah. He talks about the fear of death, atonement, suffering, and the world-wide economic collapse, and tells us how we can protect ourselves, as we enter into the Messianic era.

Aleph Melbourne has transcribed Rabbi Kessin’s interview commentary from time point 12:46 to time point 14:06:

And basically he’s 98% finished, that’s how close we are to the redemption. Therefore what god wants to do is bring the redemption. However, there are certain problems that must be addressed by god in order for the redemption to actually happen. And what we begin to see is that the pandemic is an exact designer drug, if you want to use that expression, that will remove these problems. Ah, in other words the plague itself is a vehicle, is an instrument, to accelerate the messianic process by removing these major problems. What are they? You see. So therefore what we see is the following. The first major problem is that man has corrupted his nature. There is a tremendous amount of, ah, what’s called immorality in the world today. It’s widespread. There’s, in Hebrew it’s called “prichus” (פְּרִיצוּת). We want, we could say it’s also in the form of homosexuality, and gays and so on and so forth, where all of a sudden the gender differentiation is, is tremendously blurred. So that is an incredible corruption of man’s nature.

Leifer, Five Years After Israeli Initial Ruling Protected Her, Faces Extradition

A private investigator tracked Malka Leifer as she did shopping in Bnei Brak on December 14, 2017.

Report: Leifer fit to face extradition

NINE years after three police statements were made in Victoria, a panel of psychiatrists has ruled alleged child sexual abuser Malka Leifer is fit to face extradition from Israel to Australia.

“We cannot believe this day has come,” alleged victim Dassi Erlich said.

“Incredible news! We knew this all along! Such a long wait! Justice has come!”

Leifer was first arrested in Israel in August 2014, but was ruled unfit to face extradition proceedings. A new panel of three psychiatrists was recently formed to give the Jerusalem District Court judge a new opinion on her mental health conditions.

The panel is due to hand over its report to the Jerusalem District Court today (Friday) and then it will officially be presented in court Tuesday, but an official with knowledge of the case told The Times of Israel that she has been assessed as fit to stand trial.

Child sexual abuse advocate Manny Waks said this is a monumental development in the case.

“It seem that finally justice will prevail,” he said.

Malka Leifer and Those Who Helped Her Escape – Karma…

https://www.theage.com.au/national/cbd-melbourne-tins-rattle-loud-for-hawks-20191210-p53iob.html

IT WAS WRITTEN

Adherettes, the Port Melbourne signage company headed by Mair “Mark” Ernst, has gone into voluntary liquidation after operating for more than 40 years.

Ernst was at one stage listed on the website as a “prominent member” of Melbourne’s Jewish community.

Prominent is one way of putting it. He was a committee member at the ultra-orthodox Adass Israel School in Elsternwick during the mid-2000s, as the school dealt with claims of sexual abuse by principal Malka Leifer.

Ernst and wife Hadassa came under fire during the police investigation when it was revealed that Hadassa had arranged the plane tickets for Leifer’s midnight dash to Israel the night she was fired from the school.

The school paid for the airfares.

Victoria Police eventually charged Leifer with 74 counts of sexual assault and rape, but have been hampered from pursuing the case because Leifer fled before a warrant could be issued.

Are There no Crimes So Unthinkable That Enforcement of Justice is Simply a Moral Imperative? Malka Leifer

Malka Leifer loses bid to avoid new examination over mental fitness for extradition

The former Melbourne school principal Malka Leifer, who is accused of sexually assaulting female students, has lost a bid in an Israeli court to stop a further psychiatric examination to assess if she is mentally fit for extradition.

The Jerusalem supreme court on Tuesday rejected an appeal filed by Leifer’s lawyers against a district court decision handed down in late September that ordered a new psychiatric panel to assess and report on the 52-year-old’s mental state.

The appeal was heard a week before the new panel was due to present its findings to the Israeli court.

Leifer faces extradition to Australia on 74 charges of sexually assaulting students during her time at Melbourne’s ultra-orthodox Adass Israel school.

She fled to Israel in 2008 after the allegations emerged and the process to extradite her has stalled several times since charges were laid in 2013.

Dassi Erlich, one of her alleged victims, has been fighting along with her sisters to bring Leifer back to Australia. She had a nervous six-hour wait for a final decision from the supreme court’s judge David Mintz.

“With two months since the last hearing, Leifer has been front and centre of our minds and we almost forgot how emotionally exhausting and physically gruelling these hearings are,” Erlich said. “Time to breathe, sleep and remember we will get through this.”

In September judge Chana Miriam Lomp deemed there was not enough evidence that Leifer was mentally fit to face an extradition trial, even though court proceedings have been under way since 2014.

Israel’s State Attorney Office, acting as the prosecution in the case against Leifer, has produced countless evidence over the 61 court hearings that the accused is feigning mental illness to avoid an extradition trial.

At the end of October Leifer’s lawyers had stated she would not cooperate in the fresh psychiatric assessment. The district court judge ruled the panel should proceed anyway.

In court on Tuesday Leifer’s defence continued to claim there was no “rationale” or “authority” by the court for the accused to undergo another assessment, and it was unfair on the defendant.

The psychiatric panel will examine Leifer on Wednesday before presenting its report to the court on Tuesday.

The report will be discussed at next week’s hearing and both sides will then be given the opportunity to cross-examine the psychiatrists.

The victim supporter Manny Waks said he was pleased with the supreme court’s decision.

“We expect next week’s decisive hearing to rule that Malka Leifer is indeed fit to face justice, and that her extradition hearing will finally recommence,” he said.

“This ongoing farce must end, and justice must prevail – for Leifer’s victims and for other victims who are being deterred from pursuing justice.”
