Killer pedo scumbag out of cash and crying like a baby about it too

The killer pedo scumbag, currently having a holiday in a cockroach infested jail in Brazil, is upset because he is out of cash and can’t afford a lawyer.

Recaptured murderer Phillip Smith has had all his money confiscated, and his family and former business partner are refusing to stump up cash to pay for a lawyer.

Tony Ellis, who has represented Smith in New Zealand, has been trying to arrange a Brazilian lawyer to visit him in jail in Rio de Janeiro. But they all want payment upfront. One had asked for a business-class airfare to New Zealand to discuss the case, Ellis said.

When Smith, 40, fled from Auckland Airport on November 6, he told Customs officers he was carrying $10,600. Read more »

Murdering pedo scumbag doesn’t like hard lag, might return voluntarily, if they let him

Poor little murdering pedo scumbag?Phillip Smith doesn’t like life sitting in a steamy cell in Brazil and is contemplating coming home voluntarily.

Runaway killer Phillip John Smith will voluntarily return to New Zealand to escape harsh conditions in the Brazilian jail system, says his lawyer.

Smith was transferred from the notorious Ary Franco Prison to the Bandeira Stampa public jail, part of the Gericino Penitentiary Complex – the largest public prison in Brazil – on Friday.

If the 40-year-old sex offender chooses to fight his extradition to New Zealand, he could face several months in a dangerous and basic South American prison.

Smith boasted from Brazil that New Zealand would have considerable difficulty getting him back – if they caught him.

But given the conditions behind bars, lawyer Tony Ellis said he expected his client would voluntarily return to New Zealand, rather than go through an extradition or deportation process.

“The conditions will be pretty awful in jail,” he told the Herald on Sunday.

I bet Phillip Smith wishes he was back in Springhill prison about now

Quite apart from the fact that kiddy fiddlers aren’t that popular in jail no matter what country, you see even crims have ethics, I bet right now that Phillip Smith is wishing he hadn’t absconded from Springhill prison.

This is a video of what conditions are like in the prison he is currently resting up in.

I think he may soon wish he was back inside a comfy kiwi jail… ?? Read more »

So now the truth comes out

Yesterday a scurrilous attack from within National’s ranks, most likely from the highest office was made on Sam Lotu Iiga.

Andrea Vance was apoointed the hatchet carrier and they maligned the Minister by sugesting he was in “meltdown” and “nowhere to be seen”.

In this morning’s Herald however we find out that Sam was actually doing his job.

Corrections Minister Sam Lotu-Iiga is defending his handling of the escape of a high-risk prisoner as his department was forced to put all prisoner releases on hold.

The escape of killer Phillip John Smith was Mr Lotu-Iiga’s first test in the $2.6 billion portfolio, which he inherited from Anne Tolley last month.

Mr Lotu-Iiga fronted to media for the first time last night, two days after Smith failed to return from his 72-hour release into the community.

“I’ve handled it the best that I can,” he said. “Obviously mistakes were made within the department. We’ve acknowledged that. The department has acknowledged that.? Read more »

Phillip Smith

Phillip Smith is likely to have had outside help in planning his escape to Chile while on temporary release, police say.

He may also have been planning his escape for years, authorities say.

Smith left by plane for Chile on a passport previously obtained in his birth name, on the afternoon of Thursday, November 6, the day he was temporarily released from Springhill Prison.

The passport was valid, and therefore there was no reason to stop him at the border.

The Huddle

I was on The Huddle last night at 1740. Larry Williams was away, Susan Wood fills in and my usual sparring partner turned up for another shellacking.

Our topics were:

Russel Norman turning nasty on John Key?? he?s also now been on the end of a lot of ridicule for the Muldoon comparison. It?s also over shadowed the policy announcements the party actually made over the weekend, so it doesn?t appear to have been the slam dunk they were perhaps hoping for. Metiria Turei must be fuming her crazy education policy didn?t get any uptake?but then again maybe that was the plan.? Read more »

I am on The Huddle tonight at 1740. Larry Williams is away, Susan Wood fills in and my usual sparring partner will turn up for another shellacking.
