Interesting job description

Apparently we have a “government employed assassin” in New Zealand.

A Kiwi former ”mercenary” is in the middle of a multi-million dollar court case between the estate of the late Australian billionaire Richard Pratt and his former high-priced mistress.

Former escort Madison Ashton told the New South Wales Court yesterday that Pratt urged her to sleep with his Kiwi bodyguard Sean Bowman because he feared the man would blackmail him.

She said Pratt told her that Bowman was a ”mercenary” who had been an SAS soldier in New Zealand, and a government-employed assassin.

How many government ordered assassinations have there been in New Zealand or Australia? I think Scribe has the answer – Not many, If any.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
