MEDIA RELEASE ********

Australian Tax Office
Today @ 9:15 AM local time via a telephone conference the WA Supreme Court gave their judgement to this case.
Prince Leonard and Prince Wayne were disappointed that a major part of their argument was dismissed as irrelevant or ‘gobbledygook’.
Prince Leonard has adjusted his life to previous rulings like in the 1980’s when the judgement was that income derived from Tourism was tax exempt. In 2008 the ATO finally issued in writing a tax assessment stating that LG Casley (similar for others in the PHR) was a non-resident of Australia therefore no tax is payable. This formal advice was for the 2005 year and many, many subsequent years the ATO confirmed this in writing by issuing return statements that no tax was payable, since obviously any money was earned within the Principality of Hutt River and nothing in or from Australia. At the same time the ATO advised that should any money be earned within the Commonwealth of Australia the ATO advised that the tax free threshold on earnings would not apply as that is only for Australian residents. Foreign workers are charged at full rates from the first dollar earned.
Today all these precedencies seem to have been dismissed as though they do not exist.
His Honour Justice Le Miere today stated that the laws of the Constitution are binding in all courts. This is our belief also. The Principality was founded on Governments acting outside the law, which has been accepted by Prime Ministers, Premiers, Governor Generals and Governors. Are these people’s opinions irrelevant?
We have recent correspondence (February 2017) from the offices of:- Australian Prime Minister The Hon Malcolm Turnbull, the former Western Australian Premier Colin Barnet and Her Excellency to Honourable Kerry Sanderson AC, stating, Dear Prince Graeme, apologies that we can’t attend the Abdication of Prince Leonard and enthronement of Prince Graeme but we send our best wishes for the ceremony and function at the Principality of Hutt River. Surely these are people of significance and relevance?
HM Queen Elizabeth II Queen of Great Britain and Northern Ireland has
sent her well wishes to Prince Leonard and the peoples of the Principality
for our 46th Anniversary.
Is the Queen of England irrelevant? The WA Supreme Court seems to suggest so.
In our 47 years no-one has challenged the secession or asked for their lands back. The Law Principle of Laches and Acquiescence’s must apply. That is, if you know that something is happening but chose to do nothing for a number of years and then then try to, it may be too late. Surely 47 years is too late.
After the ATO quickly and out of the blue allocated an ABN and GST registration upon LG Casley in July 2015 and informed him it was done, (something that LG Casley never applied for and has never held), the ATO asked for GST to be paid (a figure of value that the ATO dreamt up) and fined him for not submitting the BAS’s, then added compounding interest daily on the fines.
October 19th 2016, following protests from us, the ATO cancelled the ABN and GST registration and confirmed in writing that no ABN nor GST registration was required; and therefore no registering of a business (ABN), no registering for GST and no taxes were required.
The GST and ABN in any event are ultra vires as they do not comply with The Australian Constitution and therefore do not require obedience.
It is against the Australian Money Lenders Act to charge compounding
We feel these points of law are relevant and perhaps all would like to know these facts.
When a government directly or through their agencies dismisses laws, ignores laws or invents laws contrary to the Constitution people become anxious. I don’t think this is ‘gobbledygook’. Is this when a government is called a ‘Regime’?
In the well known words of my
father Prince Leonard - "We are still here!"
The ATO without the knowledge of Prince Leonard issued an ABN and
registered him with the ATO for the Australian Goods and Services Tax regime
in July 2015
