‘A sad day for the freedom of all NZers’: Tamaki responds after being remanded in custody

2

Report from the MSM: Personally I think arresting Tamaki will make a “martyr” of him. Tamaki thrives on publicity and I have little doubt he will turn this to advantage. Martin

Brian Tamaki has been remanded in custody for 10 days after his bail application was refused.

by Rachel Sadler 

The Destiny Church leader appeared in the Auckland District Court via an audiovisual link on Monday afternoon. He was arrested earlier in the day for allegedly breaching his bail conditions.

Tamaki is remanded in custody to Mt Eden Prison until January 27, which is his next court appearance.

The judge said the only information from the hearing that can be published is the outcome.

Tamaki is facing multiple charges relating to the COVID-19 Protection Public Health Order and breaching bail conditions.

In a statement released via his lawyer Ron Mansfield on Monday afternoon following the hearing, Tamaki says he “denies the breach and will defend what is alleged when permitted” at next Thursday in court.

“It is not accepted that he should have been remanded in custody and any longer period on remand will be challenged vigorously. He believes in the value of the rule of law and is disappointed the contrary has been suggested by those who seek to silence him and any opposition to their power or policy,” he says.

“It is a sad day for the freedom of all New Zealanders when people cannot gather and be heard in opposition to government policy when they believe it to be wrong and contrary to the good of the people.

“The New Zealand Bill of Rights Act has lost any impact that those who drafted it dreamt it might have. Democracy has taken another hit today and we are all worse off for that.”

Tamaki and his wife Hannah revealed he was going to be arrested ahead of police arriving at the couple’s home on Monday morning.

“It’s all about speaking the truth and actually that truth is about how our freedoms and rights have been eroded,” Brian said in a Facebook video. 

The couple said they “don’t regret what we are doing”.

Tamaki said he’s speaking on behalf of businesses and individuals who he says have been hurt by the vaccine mandate. 

“People think I keep breaching my bail conditions, I’ve always said I’m not guilty.”

He went on to claim he should never have been charged in the first place. 

“For all of those who say ‘book him, send him off to jail’ you don’t understand why this has happened and I should never have been charged in the first place thank you.”

Protesters swarmed the Mt Eden remand centre where Tamaki was taken and attempted to block the police car from entering. The crowd also performed a haka before surrounding the car.

Police launched an investigation earlier in the month after Tamaki visited Hagley Park in Christchurch to speak at a protest. But he claims it wasn’t a protest but rather a “family funday picnic”.

He said he didn’t organise the event but was asked to speak because he was in the city to preach at the Destiny Church service in Cranmer Square.

His bail conditions mean he’s banned from organising, attending, supporting, or speaking at any gathering that’s in breach of COVID-19 rules. Under the orange traffic light setting, there are no capacity limits on gatherings should COVID-19 vaccine passes be used. If passes are not used, gatherings are limited to 50 people “based on 1m physical distancing in a single defined space at the venue at any time”.

Tamaki appeared before a court three times last year. In November, he spoke at an anti-vaccine mandate protest in Auckland attended by more than 1000 people – despite the city being in alert level 3 and mass gatherings banned.

In October, he was charged with attending and organising a protest in breach of alert level 3 restrictions. He pleaded not guilty and was granted bail on the condition he didn’t attend or organise any gathering in breach of the COVID-19 requirements. 

Days later, Tamaki attended another event at Auckland Domain and was charged with breaching his bail conditions. He again pleaded not guilty and was given bail.

  1. Where to start..all this government & elite managed to do is weaken a country as well as separate it’s people into different “classes”. Once you mix the origin of people with a wave of different countrymen, you weaken a nation….That’s what happened in Europe from 2015,the Merkel Plan,planned years ago before 2015..just in Germany on it’s own the first 500.000 immigrants in 2015 were all organised criminals..I was there & experienced it…The council buildings were full of…” -bloody hell in which country do I actaully live in now -people”. They got EVERYTHING, housing, pension, social support & the good old hard working nana who rented for 25 years+ got kicked out of the rental as the govenment paid the landord up to euro 50-75 a day for a so called “refugee”. Some locals were so generous, they accomodated foreigners out of good faith just to find themselves burgled the next day…or nana’s purse stolen out of her handbag after she hugged the storyteller coming from a troubled nation. Conductors beaten up by gangs in trams, trains stopped in the middle of the countryside as the conductor needed help as he was insulted by the “immigrant” traveller who didn’t pay for his ticket of $10.00.That was the start…so was crime by 30% & more to tell,way more.
    Basicially, complacent people did let it happen to do so….history repeats..
    Most of us are too “she’s alright & that’s how it is” & hope when they switch off the TV with the bad,sucky movie they are currently watching…the next day, when they wake up it’s forgotten & the sun will shine again.
    Except we haven’t watched a bad movie as are actually now part of it & living in it or even being the director ( to our own life ) right now….”NO U-TURN” ( another good movie) from the NWO…most people always hope, that someone will sort it for them….hence we may fall (will fall??) against the 70 % of those who do let it happen. Democrats in the US have already voted by near on 50%,that they want the “unvaxxed” to be sent to FEMA camps & their children taken away from them. ( Infowar 17.1. Alex Jones Show)
    Unless you are not a freedom – rights- fighter, who has the balls to speak up & action on it’s talk, you will always be neutral or passiv & support the opposition, the enemy or the evil!
    I try to stay hopeful and keep the strength to fight…

    1. The vax passes all expire shortly Marion. No, the boosters don’t boost the pass expiry!
      Shortly after Ardern’s wedding, we’ll likely go into lockdown (Red Light) due to Omicron’s inevitable arrival.
      Ardern wants this exercise done and dusted before the next elections.
      Get ready for fun times ahead.
