Interesting take on the events. Now we’ll look at the other side of the story…
“Magistrate Studham managed to maintain control of the court and the incident at all times … “I have heard what you have to say but the High Court has already decided these matters.” Magistrate Studham said. “I’m not hearing your matter today. It’s an administrative hearing to be listed for a contest hearing. Do you intend to plead?” she asked.
“I’m arresting you for treason. What is your authority?” Mr Rech continued. After further exchanges of that nature, Ms Studham told Rech that his matter was concluded and he was free to go.
“This is a treasonous court,”Mr Rech shouted while exiting the courtroom. The business of the day continued.”
In 2021 James Rech was back at it, claiming to “arrest” another magistrate and also the prosecutor. Over the phone, of all methods. These CPO’s really make short work of arrests.
Jim Rech was heavily involved in the private prosecution brought by Anthony Herman against Premier Daniel Andrews for “Misprision of treason”. Jim Rech made the announcement in a speech at a Melbourne protest, and despite all the fanfare, the prosecution was dismissed in 5 minutes at Myrtleford Magistrates Court on the 17th December 2021.
