HIGH COURT OF AUSTRALIA
Monday 9th September 2019
Matter of ANZAC Military Forces Veterans Association’s Allegations Relating to the Commonwealth of Australia and Catholic Church’s Management of Personnel During World War 1 and World War 2
A Writ seeking redress via punitive penalties and compensation for the unwarranted deaths, indeed alleged murders, of Australian Infantry Forces (AIF) and New Zealand Infantry Forces (NZIF) during World War and World War Two was heard by the Bench of the High Court of Australia on Monday 9th September 2019, in Adelaide, Republic of Australia and New Zealand.
The Writ was prepared and presented for hearing by the High Court of Australia and New Zealand by the ANZAC Military Forces Veterans Association.
The Writ alleged that the Commonwealth Government of Australia and Defence Department in particular knowingly and maliciously poisoned Australian Infantry Forces (AIF) and New Zealand Infantry Forces (NZIF) during World War I and World War II. The various poisons were given to the AIF and NZIF in field food rations.
It is alleged that the poisoned field rations resulted in as many as 40,000 deaths of AIF and NZIF personnel during either/both conflicts.
The ANZAC Military Forces Veterans Association is seeking punitive penalties for the current incumbents of the Commonwealth of Australia and of the State of New Zealand. The punitive penalties sought are the equivalent to those of similar wrong doing under Federal Legal Legislation.
Additionally, the ANZCMF Forces Veterans Association is seeking compensation of $A800,000 for each Personnel known to have been poisoned and died during either conflict and/or within a 12 month time frame after being repatriated to their Country of origin, either Australia or New Zealand at the completion of their military service. The Compensation is to be paid to the surviving family Members of those deceased persons, allegedly poisoned/murdered by the incumbent Governments and their Public Services during those aformentioned conflicts.
DECISION BY THE HIGH COURT OF AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND
The Judges of the High Court found the allegations made in the Writ by the ANZACMF Military Forces Veterans Association Proven by the evidence supplied by their Legal Counsel.
Decisions relating to punitive penalties and compensation will be announced next week, Monday 16th September 2019.
