The Chisholm Report is very ugly for Fran O’Sullivan.
Lets take some of the allegations she has chucked around, often in a defamatory fashion in the past months:
First she said “Key Must Widen Probe”
Was there a conspiracy to defeat the course of justice after the collapse of the Hanover Group of companies?
That’s the question the Government must address after the disquieting claims in relation to the attempts by the trio allegedly working for Hanover Finance to discredit the SFO and FMA and prime potential witnesses in any resulting court cases.
Ergh no…the Chisholm Report completely exonerated both Mark Hotchin and Judith Collins from discrediting anyone. Â Mr Hotchin in particular was found not to have funded or had anything to do with any of the above.
A cache of emails appears to reveal that three people – Carrick Graham, who was former Hanover Finance director Mark Hotchin’s PR man, tax lawyer and blogger Cathy Odgers (aka Cactus Kate) and blogger Cameron (Whale Oil) Slater – were running campaigns apparently on behalf of Hotchin to try to discredit the SFO and the Financial Markets Authority as they investigated the failed finance company.
No. Â Justice Chisholm found that no one was running campaigns “apparently on behalf of Hotchin to try to discredit” anyone.
