Phillip John Smith is a lower life form than pond scum

And that is being extremely unkind to pond scum.

The Brazilian judge who ordered the deportation of convicted murderer and paedophile  back to New Zealand a year ago has been dismissed from office amid allegations he appropriated seized stolen goods, Smith’s lawyer says.

Smith, who is accused of escaping from prison and fleeing to Brazil, is seeking to have those charges dismissed on the basis the deportation was illegal.

His lawyer, Tony Ellis, said it was being reported that the judge, Flávio Roberto de Souza, claimed in his own defence that he was suffering from dementia and could not tell right from wrong.   

Dr Ellis said if that was the case, he could not have made a valid decision.

And what sort of lawyer uses weaselly excuses like this to try and get his absconding shitbag of a client out of jail?

The lawyer obviously failed logic 101.

His client would never have been in Brazil if he hadn’t absconded from prison in the first place. He is seeking to wind back the clock only so far. He needs to wind it back to escape from custody and the crimes he committed then.
