I am my mother’s full time primary carer, executor and trustee of her estate, power of attorney, and health advocate. I had arranged a two week respite at a local aged care facility between 14 February 2018 and 28 February 2018.

On Monday 26 February 2018 I had lunch with my mother at the facility and as we parted I told her that I would see her in 2 days to bring her home. The next day I called to check in on my mum only to be told by a staff member that my mother had left of her own volition, they were not obligated to answer any questions and if I wanted to speak to the solicitors they could help with their phone number, did I want it?

In short, I have not seen my mother since which is now nearly 18 months ago. I have no idea as to her whereabouts nor do I have a clue as to her well being. My mother has two progressive terminal illnesses namely Parkinson’s and Lewy Bodies Dementia. The last time I saw her she weighed 39 kilos, had a urinary tract infection and was delirious. These third party interlopers say that my mother has legal capacity, which they believe is sufficient legalese to trump the definition of medical capacity.

(Note: A urinary tract infection can often times cause delirium in older people, whether mistakenly or for other motives, misdiagnosed as dementia. It can also increase symptoms of dementia.)

I informed the local police that my mother was kidnapped however, the police have refused to assist by claiming – ‘this is a civil matter’.

Like Kristy, I too was scheduled and escorted by police to a psychiatric facility. In my defense, a friend and one associate of mine phoned the hospital staff involved. For the duration of my stay I was held captive having to answer endless questions about my entire life leaving me traumatized and exhausted. On the hospital exiting paperwork, it clearly says that I should never have been admitted.

When I was listening to Kristy share about the Terrorist and Fixated Person’s Unit the hairs on my arms stood up. I had no idea that this unit even exists in Australia.

(Note: The Terrorist and Fixated Persons was created supposedly to ferret out “lone-wolf” possible terrorists, it was quickly expanded and converted to use against anyone who spoke out about public corruption and the status quo in Australian government and agencies.)

The day after my mother had been removed from the aged care facility without my consent or knowledge, I returned to complain to the Director of Nursing. During our conversation she was aggressive and before asking me to leave, she said, “You are not even her next of kin.” It has eluded me all this time as to why she would say something like that until I heard Kristy explain on your radio show.

Since my mother’s disappearance these third party interlopers have written me claiming that my mother wants me out of our home. I have rebutted each one confirming we have a private agreement concerning the property.

On the 15 May 2019 I was served papers from the Supreme Court to take possession. We attended court on the 24th and 25th June 2019. Our next court date is 25 July 2019. I have asserted these third party interlopers conduct has been unconscionable. I shall continue to rebut their claims and demand access to my mother by way of a writ of Habeas Corpus.


Like the new NSW unit, the QFTAC relies upon state police officers and government mental health employees to identify people who are thought to ‘fixate’ on individuals and organizations – including public identities and government officials.

One Queensland criminal lawyer described how five police officers came to his client’s door and demanded he undergo a psychiatric assessment. According to the lawyer, this demand was made on the basis that his client “had recently made a number of official complaints about the behaviour of a certain public servant, who he contended had been abusing his powers in the line of duty”.

The fear, of course, is that such units will be used to identify, target and victimize whistleblowers and others who speak against state agents – rather than have any significant value in combating ‘lone-wolf’ attacks.

It should be noted that, unlike in Queensland, the NSW unit has been given specific powers to access medical records held by the NSW Department of Health.
