  • The Wlodarczyk Killing - Terror Becomes Horror, Kay Chambers is Dead

    In July 1994 Kay Chambers and Paul Johannsen were extradited from Sydney, to face charges in the Brisbane Supreme Court, re the 1975 mutilation murder of this popular and loyal member of The Painters and Dockers Union.

    In response to demands this journal published in May and June 1996 and to telephone inquiries re the delay in bringing this matter to trial, a Justice Department spokesman replied 11 July 1996, there would be no trial Johannsen had been released from custody early 1996..

    After key prosecution witness Chambers had committed suicide by jumping from a tall building in Sydney in November 1995, after being released from custody in Brisbane a short time before.

    Dockers Union.

    At the July '94 extradition hearing in Sydney, Chambers pleaded, screaming to the judge not to send her to Brisbane, shrieking she had been shot in the head there shortly after John Wlodarczyk's death in an obvious attempt to kill her.

    When asked of the probity of the delay in proceeding with the trial the Justice Department man replied the question of probity was not for him, he garbled some bull about defense lawyers making applications, evading the issue of the delay.

    Asked why did the trial not proceed immediately the pair arrived in Brisbane, whereas she appears to have been in custody for at least thirteen months, remanded, charged in relation to a nineteen year old murder investigation.

    And was he aware this union had been pursuing this matter independently, and had made statements in court, to the police and to the Criminal Justice Commission since 1992 regarding the activities of a man called Stretch Johannsen,

    Who was said by the same source ultimately to name Smith as the murderer of Batkin ie the dockyard grapevine, to have along with a woman accomplice killed John Wlodarczyk, aka John Grosvenor, aka Mexican Johnny .. the JD man remained aloof.

    The union insisted probity was lacking evidenced circumstantially by the death of this woman, which lack of probity we have alleged consistently is tied to terrorism on the docks and wanton and serious corruption among the police, at the CJC and in Parliament.

    However the most serious corruption and the place where probity has least place we allege, is within the Crown Law Department the Public Prosecutors Office, the JD fellow was become a tad churlish by then, we persisted ..


    Peter Beattie was Parliamentary Criminal Justice Commission Committee Chairperson when the union approached him in 1992, additionally he was Member for Brisbane the electorate in which the union office is located.

    We told him corrupt murderous elements from within and without the union, were in the process of hijacking the electoral process within the organization, and that the mob at The Australian Industrial Relations Commission were getting cute re their role in proceedings.

    That members had been openly threatened in company with murder, and that threats had preceded the deaths of Ron Chapman and Les Batkin dead up until then as we told Beattie, and Merv Collins and now Kay Chambers since.
