A Magistrate Crompton Outrage

Why on earth was this man given bail? His surety was his $4 million home and the police have already began the process to confiscate the property and its value may be realised by the NSW State Government to the benefit of taxpayers.

Police were confident of an early arrest of the escapee but others suggest, more likely, he headed straight to his private jet and flew overseas.

Would I be cynical in thinking he was given bail because he is a rich and popular in some circles restaurateur? How is Magistrate Michael Crompton sleeping, considering the huge investment of resources invested in Baluch's capture and court appearance? What a disgraceful decision it was by Crompton to grant bail. A tonne of coke, rich, friends with influential people, good criminal connections, a private jet...what could possibly go wrong. I am not a great one for being critical of judges and I admit I don't know all the facts, but still, I think the magistrate should stand down. His decision does not pass the water cooler, pub or sniff test.

Why do so many alleged drug king pins have such similar appearances? You whistle and I will point. 

Moustafa Baluch is charged with conspiracy to import almost a tonne of cocaine

He was released on bail last week

  • Police say his ankle monitoring bracelet was removed about 10.30pm last night.

  1. I am with you completely on this. Poorer people charged with MUCH less serious offences have no possibility of getting bail..

  2. The removal of the ankle bracelet would be a deal breaker here. He'd be taken straight to jail.

  3. This sort of thing makes my blood boil. One wonders if the esteemed magistrate was receiving the odd gift.

  4. What a joke. Don't worry about Crompton sleeping, he will just move on and look after some other well to do grub😡😡😡

  5. Horrible outcome. And like you say, reasonably predictable given his wealth and connections. Why do so many people in high positions seem to do such stupid things? No need to answer. Rhetorical question only.

  6. I am terrified of drug dealing, and I assume the magistrate was too.

  7. Perhaps Baluch has something on the magistrate, knows of a few skeletons in closets or similar. Money talks, evil walks.

  8. My run in law might of been a few speeding ticket when I was young. I know it more like Money talks and bull shit walks.
    I never had ankle thing on me. I talk to one guy who had one and he just cut off and tossed it and went out partying. And also he been hit this stunt gun and said sobber him right up. I like not having anything to do with court systems.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  9. It's the same in the UK. The prisons are full, so any newly caught criminals just get a slap on the wrist. The law is on THEIR side.

  10. Dreadful he's out and about where ever he may be now.
    Don't know what is wrong with the Judges and Magistrates they are always letting people out who in my opinion should not be out.

  11. I wonder what the size of the bail was? No doubt kind Mr Crompton set it at some lofty sum like fifty dollars. What an oaf!

  12. Well, at least he's forfeiting a hefty bail amount. Four million dollars is nothing to sneeze at! So some measure of justice will be done...but yeah, seeing him prosecuted would have been more fulfilling.

    1. Although -- to put it in perspective -- the news says his cocaine scheme was worth $270 million. So that gives you some idea of the wealth he's probably hiding. Sounds like a real dirtbag. I hope they catch him.

  13. Rich people here get a lot different treatment too, in the "justice" system, like release and bail while poor people get held in limbo forever, unable to pay even small bail amounts, ensuring they lose jobs and housing.

  14. These kingpins often have boats and planes and other resources that put the government's equipment in the shade.

  15. GNP higher than most small countries. Powerful enough to blackmail most in power. Not surprised at all.

  16. Spend the four million on counseling for the people who were going to consume a tone of poison, if there are no consumers, the suppliers go away.

  17. The justice system stinks. Lawyers and judges hate locking people up because they cant re offend when they are in prison. Let all these criminals out on bail so they can claim legal aid for every single offence they commit while out on bail and WE PAY FOR. The justice system is more corrupt than the criminals they "give justice" to. Boys looking after the boys. Sack the whole corrupt justice system and start again.
