The Industrial Hemp Association

I would like to take this opportunity for those of you who are not aware, to introduce you all to the Industrial Hemp Association.

The Industrial Hemp Association of NSW (IHA) is part of the National Australian Industrial Hemp Alliance (AIHA) with clear visions and aims including education through increasing the public awareness of the immense benefits of Industrial Hemp in all sectors. These sectors include, Food Products, Medicine, Textiles, Clothing, Paper, Building Products, Bio Fuels, Land Regeneration, the list just goes on and on.

Dr Andrew Katelaris, Myself , the COU and many many other amazing people and groups are working tirelessly with this and other significant organisations, with a clear intent over the next three years of bringing about extremely significant much needed national reform.

Many people familiar with Hemp and Cannabis often overlook how uneducated the general public is in regards to the immense benefits of this amazing plant. I myself have seen key witnesses, qualified doctors in closed courts claiming “Cannabis Causes Cancer”. I have witnessed a Legal representative argue that if a child is restored to a parent they may try to give them hemp seeds. I sadly am not joking. I have witnessed children ripped from families who unfortunately made the mistake of being honest and going public that they treat their children with unlicenced medicinal cannabis. These things are happening now, today all over the country. We have roadside drug tests with no relationship to impairment that are a serious concern for all, the recent study from the Lambert Initiative highlights the many problems, even if you never had hemp or cannabis in your life you have a 20% chance of losing your licence for 24 hours on the spot for nothing, does it get any more draconian?

Our discussions together have targeted key areas where we feel there is a great need for education, support and reform including, FACS and Child Protection, The Police, Children’s Courts, Local and District Courts, Hospitals, Doctors, Paediatricians, Chemists etc etc.

We are using this flyer attached to begin this process and we are planning to generate other more targeted flyers to assist people. As part of this strategy, and as something I personally consider very important,  we are all working together to help collectively build a free much needed collaborative support network for individuals and families caught in the current situations created by outdated legislation and ignorance.

Please feel free to share and download the DL Flyer attached and I look forward to sharing more about this with you all soon.

High Court of Australia Determination

Thursday 20th of June 2019

 To the Senior Registrar High Court of Australia                                      RE: Burton v Family and Community Services NSW (S106/2019)

 Dear Senior Registrar,

Thank you for your letter on the 13th of June.

I have had an opportunity to look at the link you provided where you stated in your letter that the High Court is to provide reasons for their decisions with Appeals seeking leave to the High Court

I note that in reference to my matter the High Court has now provided the following:

Burton v Family and Community Services NSW [2019] HCASL 198 (19 June 2019) Last Updated: 19 June 2019 

[2019] HCASL 198  S106/2019

  1. The appeal foreshadowed by this application for special leave to appeal would have no prospects of success. The application should be dismissed.
  2. Pursuant to r 41.08.1 of the High Court Rules 2004 (Cth), we direct the Registrar to draw up, sign and seal an order dismissing the application.

I mean no disrespect Senior Registrar and perhaps in part because I am self represented it is more difficult, but according to The High Courts Rules 2004 Rule 6.03 Publication of written reasons for judgment, a disposition must include reasons.

My application seeking leave to the High Court included fourteen grounds and the High Court of Australia has not provided any reasons whatsoever for its dismissal. What the High Court has provided is a determination, not reasons. Reasons are an explanation to the plaintiff and the public of why a decision has been determined.

The following article on the constitutional duty to give reasons for judicial proceedings is most helpful.

As a self represented individual I have always expressed to the Court the importance of being provided adequate reasons for any decision so I (and the public) can then understand a determination. Failure to provide us with reasons is in my view a jurisdictional error, it is a denial of procedural fairness, it is unconstitutional, shows that the Court does not follow its own Statute Law and most importantly, it impairs the institutional integrity of the Court and brings the administration of justice into complete and utter disrepute in the eyes of the public.

Could you please provide us with adequate reasons for the High Courts determination in my matter or in the alternative, an explanation of why as a Senior Registrar you explained that I would be provided with reasons, and yet the High Court of Australia has not provided me any reasons.

As this matter concerns the very foundation of our fundamental democratic principles here in Australia and the people’s view of the judicial system and all it alleges to represent, I would respectfully ask that you answer this letter, so we the people can then determine how to best graciously and publicly proceed if necessary, to ensure the administration of justice in Australia is restored to a position of integrity.

Kindest regards and God Bless

Pr Paul Robert Burton

PRB Court Update June 2019

To good people everywhere.
Dr Andrew and I are in Newcastle Local Court again this Wednesday 19th June from 9.30am  for another further mention of our criminal charges for allegedly releasing information that was and still is in the public domain, about a child that was being successfully treated with unlicenced medicinal cannabis as a medical necessity who was forcibly and violently removed from the loving family and the supportive community, by a Government Department called Family and Community Services. (FACS)
I have noticed online that the Registrar has at this time assigned two potential Magistrates on Wednesday.
Both Andrew and I have fought tirelessly for over two years with this matter and we are finally getting towards the pointy end. We would like community support in the gallery, especially as we are now moving towards a significant trial by jury. If your are in the greater Newcastle region and know and care about this matter, please support us by appearing respectfully in the gallery to show the Magistrate/s that we the people have not forgotten what has happened, that we will not tolerate unlawful, corrupt and vexatious actions by Family and Community Services and that we are not going away until the Courts actually address our concerns in Truth and with real Justice. It is most unfortunate that our every attempt to have this matter be heard by the Courts has in one way or another been blocked or just simply removed, and it is even more unfortunate that the only way we have been able to get any hope of justice at this time, is through being criminally charged ourselves so we can present our defence to a Jury and expose the actions of this disgraceful department and all those who condone its actions, to the entire world.
Also on Wednesday afternoon at 2pm my High Court Appeal
PRB v FACS seeking right of appeal will be determined on the papers. I have communicated with the Senior High Court Registrar with my concerns and that if my application is unsuccessful I would expect my 14 grounds to be answered with reasons.  I am concerned that adequate reasons may not be provided so I sent the following request to The High Court on the 12th of June.

Dear Deputy Registrar of The High Court of Australia.

Thank you for your letter attached below in regards to the determination of my matter seeking leave to appeal S106/2019.

I note in your letter there is a link provided to the High Court website where I and the public are to be notified of the outcome of that determination on the 19th June 2019. I also note that in regards to every current case listed on that High Court link that no reasons are given for any determination seeking leave to appeal. Could you please confirm for me whether the High Court will provide any reasons in my matter listed for determination on the 19th June 2019.

I understand that if my application is successful it would not be necessary to include reasons, as right of appeal would have been granted and the matter would then proceed to right of appeal, but if the matter is dismissed by The High Court am I correct in my understanding that the High Court will not provide any reasons for their decision in answer to my 14 grounds in my application.

As this matter concerns current suppression laws associated with the forced removal of a child two years ago who has now been restored to his family, that was witnessed by over four million people on social media, there is significant public interest in this case. I am concerned that if the High Court were to refuse my application and not provide any reasons that the public will lose all confidence in the judicial system, the fundamental principles of Law and open Justice and in the Courts ability to ensure the administration of justice does not fall into further disrepute in the eyes of the public.

As this is an administrative question and a request from the plaintiff, would you please share this correspondence, or my request below, with The Judge or Judges determining my matter on the 19th of June.

That the plaintiff Paul Robert Burton as a self represented individual before the High Court of Australia humbly requests, (as he did on Appeal), that if his matter is not granted right of appeal, that both he and the public be given the reasons for that decision by The High Court of Australia.

If you would be kind enough to acknowledge receipt of this email and to notify me as soon as is possible.

Kindest regards and God Bless Paul Robert Burton

The Senior Registrar replied with the following information.

Dear Sir,

RE: Burton v. Family and Community Services NSW (5106/2019)

I refer your email dated 12 June 2019. The Justices of the High Court of Australia do not engage in personal correspondence with litigants before the Court, and as such, your email has not been forwarded to them.

When an Application for special leave to appeal is dismissed, a Special leave disposition is published, constituting the reasons for judgment of the coram of judges that have determined the Application. Should the above named Application be dismissed, a disposition containing these reasons will be made publicly available via the following link:

Yours faithfully Senior Registrar High Court of Australia.

So lets see what happens on Wednesday.
