James Rech

Like many other failed constitutional theorists in the past, James Rech has styled himself as a “Commonwealth Public Official” which he claims endows him with powers over the judiciary and government.


His contentions are borrowed from vexatious litigants Wayne Glew and Brian Shaw, relating to “the Crown being removed from the states” due to amendments to the Judicial Oaths and also the Queen of Australia.

James Rech was also involved with the recent “arrest” of magistrate Ian Watkins by Dezi Freeman at Wangaratta Magistrates Court on Friday the 31st of May 2019.

From their Facebook page Alpine Regional News:

“Wonthaggi Magistrates Court today! Commonwealth Public Official Mr Jim Rech has arrested magistrate Jacinta Studham for Misprision of Treason today during a hearing at the Wonthaggi Magistrates Court, Victoria. A charge sheet was also served on the Police Prosecutor inside the courtroom. Mr Rech says that it’s time to drain the swamp and clean out the corruption that permeates the courts in Australia. “People have simply had enough and are now uniting nationwide in order to end the widespread systematic injustices dealt out by these so called courts” said Mr Rech. The arrest comes just weeks after Myrtleford man, Dezi Freeman arrested Wangaratta magistrate Ian Watkins after successfully challenging the authority of the court. Mr Rech says the charges will be dealt with by Grand Jury.”

Interesting take on the events. Now we’ll look at the other side of the story…
