Geraldine Johns-Putra; Understanding and debunking the pseudo-legal ‘sovereign citizen’ movement:
Geraldine Johns-Putra contacted me by email with very complimentary words:
I am an Australian lawyer, first admitted in Victoria about 23 years ago. I am working more these days in areas that touch on human rights, via my niche law practice in Melbourne. I have come across these OPCA arguments over the years but my work is requiring me to become better acquainted with them.
Your diligence, meticulous research and well-reasoned conclusions have made it so easy for me to trawl through the many and varied facets of the entire movement and find appropriate rebuttals to provide the people I meet who are attracted to it.
They are in the main well-meaning and peace-loving people but they are being horribly misled. These ideas are giving them false hope and potentially harming them and their families.
Thank you for your dedication and public service.
