Maritime New Zealand Ian Howden & Crown Law Mark Davies colluded to falsify the MNZ Investigation Details document
Submission of Grounds 5 & 6 – Appealing Judge Davis’s Decision
5 : Seaway failed to provide instrumental recordings of his positions & relied on his own reckoning notwithstanding Seaway no doubt, being equipped with state of the art navigational equipment, with AIS course information being available up till 3 months later.
The only electronic GPS/Radar position said to have been made at the time “20 deg x .25nm off Browns” is also in doubt as the ferry had not stopped but went past so fast with M Pigneyguy outside the wheelhouse window, that he was fumbling the aerosol horn to make further sounds as we acknowledged his safe passing. Trans Pages 210,265. Refer SD  Para 10b
Although the AIS instrument is clearly visible in the evidential photographs taken by MNZ, it was said to be “not installed,” when a course recording was requested.
Refer SD  Para 9.a
6 : Procedural Defects – Refer also to Counsel’s Memorandum on Appeal.
Section 60 MTA places a duty on MNZ to notify Transport Accident Investigation Committee (TAIC) of an incident – TAIC was not notified. Refer SD  Para 33.g
My incident report was not investigated by MNZ & forwarded to TAIC
The “Disclosed Documents” showed in “Investigation Details” no checked box indicating TAIC had been notified but subsequently, when confirmation was requested from MNZ, a form was sent which had a checked box, although my email communications directly with TAIC confirmed there had been no involvement with this incident.
The purpose of TAIC is to take lessons from incidents for the benefit of the public.
This Conviction with the most severe penalty in NZ history for a non contact incident was said by the Catherine Taylor Director of MNZ to be a deterrent in the Public Interest
Public Interest appears to be – MNZ Ian Howden, M Pigneyguy, Keith Ingram & Phillip Wardale.
