PRISONER BONDS–MELBOURNE COUNTY COURT–PRIVATELY OWNED COMPANY–LIBERTY GROUP–CHALLENGER LTD

By Freedom Fighter, member of important Australian web site ‘SOUTHERN FREEMAN’. Originally published @ http://www.southernfreemen.com/forum/topics/prisoner-bonds-melbourne-county-court-privately-owned-company
this topic disturbs me greatly
I find it extremely worrying that the melbourne county court , where i have to appear in two weeks is a privately owned company , solely to make profit .
How can people expect a fair trial when the sole purpose of this organization and its subsidiaries is, to make money and lots of it .
..courtrooms for hire, says a great deal about the judicial system here in victoria .
...are judges and magistrates for hire also....police for hire ?
seems they all have a price for their services
...they also protect their commercial operation with G4S and ISS private mercanaries ..
BIG MONEY IN INPRISONMENT >
"...Prison bonds are a subset of a fixed income security class called lease revenue bonds (LRBs). Lease revenue bonds used to finance prisons have a few characteristics that make them attractive to investors--not the least of which is their relative safety compared to their yield. Further, they are exempt from state taxation for residents of the state of issue.
If you're looking for enhanced yield without imprudently ratcheting up your risk, read on..."
WTF !!

Our business is dedicated to providing safe, reliable and high-performing fixed income products to a wide range of institutional, superannuation and retail clients.
Challenger's annuity and annuity-like offerings are unique in the marketplace.

Challenger's annuities are commonly used by institutions, retail customers and financial advisers to:
  • Provide stable, regular retirement income that is payable yearly, half-yearly, quarterly or monthly 
  • Invest cash securely for the medium to long-term (up to 50 years)
  • Diversify from other secure investments such as bank term deposits

OK, so remembering that the County Court is a trading name for the business called ‘STATE OF VICTORIA–DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE’, which corporately governs VICTORIA POLICE,
WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LIBERTY, the parent company, CHALLENGER, and the STATE OF VICTORIA–DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE?

  7. Thanks for sharing this with us and giving us all the information. I think everyone tries to get a cheaper insurance if possible. That is one of the fixed cost which people find it expensive.
