Attempts to kill

Attempt to kill in Tarcutta.

In 2002, while driving a car on a way to the conference in Canberra, we were suddenly attacked – front windscreen of our car was hit by glue-bowl so as we’ve lost all visibility. It happened in Tarcutta village. It was a miracle that we were not killed in a car accident. A glue-bowl was used only not to leave any trace. When we managed to get out from the car we have seen two women, most probably residents of the local village. After reporting this incident to the local police, no action was undertaken to find attackers. Only staff members of ACER (where my wife worked) could know about our travel to Canberra. It could be an attempt to frighten us because of revealing information about poor quality of results produced for PIZA project. We were afraid that such an attack can be repeated and we informed about the incident ASIO. We’ve got a response that we have to solve this issue ourselves. We feel that those attacks are against the Queen Jadwiga Foundation, which is the Polish organization to which belong many important people.

Accident on the area of the Australian Council of Educational Research

While my wife was leaving ACER’s underground parking, her car was hit by speeding BMW car. We feel that this accident could be “arranged” and could end tragically. Fortunately, she was not seriously injured but the car was destroyed heavily and instead of repairing, RACV made decision to destroy it. As a result, we’ve got a very small amount of money for our car. It is important to add that the car was very important in carrying out QJF activities. After that accident my wife started to feel pain in the spine. At the same time she was forced to do the work that demanded long data analysis. The executive staff and especially CEO Dr Master were aware of the accident and that long hours work after accident could end in serious health deterioration. Many times Mr. P. shouted at my wife asking quickly doing the analyses. Despite pain and stress being afraid to lose the job (as it was suggested), my wife obtained results as good as the others. Despite the suffering and humiliation, her contract was not renewed based on the prepared not true facts (evaluation was done by Dr. Lai). After such a vivid “crime” we’ve decided to take the matter to the court; this decision was also based on the lawyer’s advice. However, being in the situation without any means for leaving we’ve been thinking only about leaving Australia. We were also afraid that ACER’s attacks could be repeated.

In the first part of the year 2005 there was a refurbishment carried out in the flat no. 22 (above ours). We were not advised about the refurbishment, which lasted for a very long time and was very burdensome for us and dangerous for our health. Terrible hammering, drilling and bumping lasted all day long which was very harmful to health and made it impossible to not only work at home but also to stay at home. Till today I feel the results of that terrible psychological terror. I would like to add that all work connected with QJF activities as well as all research (scientific work) is carried out at home. The owner of the flat never said “sorry” to us.

Large piece of concrete fell down from the ceiling in the bathroom as a result of hammering and drilling in the flat no. 22 above ours. In that time I was in the bathroom. If I was struck by such a piece of concrete, I could be seriously injured or even killed.

Large wholes in the bathroom ceiling done after hammering and drilling in the flat above ours. The work was done by unqualified worker who was working without any supervision.

In the year 2006, a new owner of the flat no. 22 (Mr. Bennett) started another refurbishment. At that time both my wife and me, we were very ill and doctor advised us to stay in bed. Similarly to our experience in the previous year, heavy hammering, drilling and bumping made it impossible to stay at home. We called the police asking to stop the work for the time we were ill. As an engineer I am obliged by the code of ethic to stop any work that is carried out in unprofessional and dangerous to health way. My wife, as a director of the body corporate, was also representing other tenants of the building suffering because of the work. Policewoman who answered the call didn’t treat our request seriously. We’ve asked the worker, who behaved very aggressively, to stop the work. On Thursday, quit unexpectedly two policemen came to tell us that the work needs to be carried out. Being very ill, we were advised “to go to the street”; this was inhuman and barbaric behavior. After that “police intervention” we were both under terrible stress. Next day, on Friday, we were woken up by terrible bumping and heavy hammering. My wife fainted, and I’ve just managed to take her to the corridor (half-dressed only). She couldn’t get conscious for a long time. Workers, seeing that we are still alive, continued even heavier hammering. At last we’ve managed to get “a full conscious” and run away to the street. I felt terrible pain in my chest and I had to lie down on the street bench next to the tram stop. All day we’ve stayed in the street, close to the clinic, just in case we feel even worse and we need doctor’s assistance. My wife was very weak and  I felt a strong pain in the chest. Our doctor was not available on that day. We’ve seen our doctor the next day: we were examined and got the advice. We feel that it was well planned attempt to kill. Workers behaved very aggressively so as we were afraid to enter the building. After this incident, when the owner of the flat came, we went to see him and asked him his surname because we wanted to take legal action against him. The owner was very aggressive toward us, he explained to us that his mother is a solicitor and that in three months he will be the owner of our flat. It was not just a threat. Soon after that, new tenants (probably form New South Wales) moved to the flat above us; they were very noisy. Every day we were woken up at about 4.30 in the early morning by a very noisy behavior of tenants. Similarly was during the day so as we spent Saturdays and Sundays in the car. Quiet unexpectedly, this coincided with the changes in my wife’s work. It should be noted that at that time my wife was elaborating a new method which was an important achievement of the Victorian Government. At the same time, annoyances at the work place began. As a result of that psychological terror, my wife went through expensive detailed medical heart examination. Unfortunately, I didn’t have money to do similar medical examination.

On 5 May 2006, Colin Bradley started checking the windows in the building. Without any notice to the owners and tenants, unexpectedly, in the backyard of the building appeared heavy machinery which allowed workers to get to any balcony. My wife, as a Director of the Body Corporate, phoned the secretary Mr. Klein in this matter and found out that the workers are illegally in the backyard (they didn’t have agreement from the Body Corporate). Because using this machinery was very dangerous to our health (in the building leave older and ill persons), we ask Mr. Klein for intervention. Suddenly, on our balcony appears a man Mr. R. He was very aggressive; he knocks brutally at the balcony window with his fists. We are shocked as it is obvious that he tries to get into our flat. Only when my wife, as a Director of the Body Corporate, asks him to leave our balcony, he reluctantly leaves the balcony saying that the balcony does not belong to us. From that time we are continuously attacked as the workers “use our balcony” as if it belonged to them. This create a very danger situation because the locks in the balcony doors are very “simply” and easy to open, and there is no protection against workers getting into and plunder the flat. We have notice that our flat was plundered during that time when the work connected with windows ‘installation’ was carried out. Data from our computed could be stolen. This very burdensome work connected with checking the windows lasted about two weeks. We were afraid to stay at home at that time. It is important to underline that despite that the work was not approved by the Directors of the Body Corporate and workers were staying illegally “around the building”, yet Mr. Klein as well as other Directors did nothing to stop the work carried out illegally.

On 30 May 2006 started a very burdensome refurbishment in the flat no. 6 (below ours) which lasted about two weeks. It was impossible to stay in our flat. Very often we are forced to stay outside of the flat despite of the winter. As a result I got sick (bronchitis).

On 28 June 2006 started a very burdensome work in the building next to ours, which lasted about two months. During that time it was impossible to carry on any work for the Foundation. It is important to add that a few years ago, during the works connected with construction of that building, I’ve almost lost my hearing.

On 24 July 2006 started work very dangerous to our health connected with fitting new windows in the building in which we live. Work was carried out under a supervision of the young unexperienced woman. This work was carried out on the ‘command’ of Mr. Klein and other Directors without approving of the owners during General Meeting. We were not notified about this General Meeting (similarly like most other owners) and it seems that all matter connected with these works is a serious crime. We asked for the special commission to investigate all matters connected with crime committed by Mr. Klein Mr. Adorjan and Mr. Shadbolt. During the time when the work has been carried out we were under the continuous stress because one of the workers behaves very aggressively (most probably psychopath). I felt very bad; this was the result of the work carried out in an unprofessional way which was very dangerous to our health. In addition I had a cold - because I was forced many times to leave home and stay in the street when the work was carried out. On Tuesday workers started very burdensome work in the neighbouring flat. I have asked a young worker to stop the work because I felt very bad. Worker “throws at my face invectives” and continues the work in such a way as to make a big harm to my health. I would like to add that the worker was using “noise protecting headphones” and was aware that this work is making harm to my health. I have phoned my wife who, fortunately to me came home very quickly and in this way “saved my life”. When my wife, as a Director of the Body Corporate, asked the worker to stop the work, he was swearing at her and my wife had to hide in the flat because the workers seems to be ready attack her. Because workers started to behave very aggressively, we had to leave our flat. We think that this was an attempt to kill with premeditation. If my wife couldn’t come back home so quickly I would have been not able even to ask for help. Being afraid to loss our health and also being afraid of the “young bandit” we were forced to rent a flat in Darling Towers during the time of work carried out in the building. We’ve paid about $2000 for renting another flat because it was impossible to live in our flat in that time. Works have been carried out for a very long time only to cause a financial damage to us (forcing us to rent another flat). On 13 of September, while we were hoping that all the work has been finalized, suddenly the workers appear in the backyard of the building. That young psychopath began to threaten us and soon workers start to kick into our door. We were afraid that they could attack us from the balcony (they had ladders). When we noticed that they are in the backyard next to the balcony, we “escape” from our flat and run to our car. Young “bandit” noticed us and run toward us with some heavy object in his hand. It was a miracle that in that time somebody came by car and it is why we managed to leave the backyard by car. We were under a very big stress and we were afraid to return to our flat. It is important to underline that while we were renting another flat at Darling Towers, we have noticed that somebody was stayed in our flat. Laptop was stolen from our flat and probably files from our computer. It should be noted, that on our laptop there was all information about the foundation. We would like to add that in that time we had two laptops. The laptop that was stolen was borrowed from the workplace. That laptop was mistakenly packed in the sachet of our laptop. We feel that also some documents or some valuables could be stolen. I would like to add that the files that could be stolen included my latest research that was on the ownership of our foundation. This research has a very big value and it is very strange that in Australia our research is not protected. It is also very strange that Polish Government does not show any interest in protection of the ownership of the Polish organization. In today’s world most of the wealth comes from innovative research, not from the mines and steel factories. We feel that until now we do not have Polish Government. The Government who does not protect Polish citizens and their ownership is not a Polish Government. It would be good to learn from the German Government and his effort to protect Germen minority in Poland.

We would like to add that Mr. Klein keep sending us the levy to pay (ab. $7000) for the work   that was not done. The new windows in our flat were not installed. We feel that this is a matter of psychological terror.

This work had also very big impact on health of other people living in this building. One older person was taken to the hospital in serious condition. People are afraid to talk about an impact of this work on their health because they could be punished by Mr. Klein and owners of the company which was doing that work. No one from the City Council or doctors who are responsible for medical care do not undertake any action in order to find all damage to health of the people subjected to this sort of “terror”.

On 12 May 2007, Mr. Holmes started a very burdensome work in the flat no. 6 (below our flat). That refurbishment lasted more than two months and was very dangerous to our health. Very often work was done on Saturdays and Sundays. As a result, we were forced to “escape” from our flat on Saturdays and Sundays having no place to rest. We were under very big stress because very often we were attacked by the workers (most probably psychopaths) used by Mr. Holmes. We feel that Mr. Holmes purposefully acted in order to destroy our health. The most cruel of his behaviour was to expel us from our flat when we were ill. In that day he started early in the morning the work which was very dangerous to our health. Because we were seriously ill we went down and asked him to stop this work. He was very aggressive, said ‘No’ and continued the work. As a result, we had to “escape” from our flat and stay in our car. It was very traumatic and dangerous to our health. We would like to add that many times before we asked him (as an engineers and as a Director of the Body Corporate) to stop this work which was very dangerous to us and to others. For us it was a very big shock because all that work was done in order to prepare that flat for selling at the better price. For him and for agency (Williams) which sold this flat, our life and our health mean nothing. This is very evident case of racism in Australia – people from nationality such as Mr. Holmes could destroy the life of people from the Polish minority. It is impossible to imagine that Mr. Holmes could do such a thing to the people from other nations. 

A new owner of the flat no. 6 (after selling flat by Mr. Holmes) started further work. It was very dangerous to our health. We feel that it was very purposeful attempt to kill. It was very traumatic experience.

On Thursday (29/11/07) we were waken up by strong bumping into the wall. I have approached the window and saw a few unknown cars parked in the backyard parking of the building. This parking is “strictly for tenants” and nobody else had a right to park there (we are owner of the parking space). We have also noticed a ladder close to our balcony. I have asked unknown persons to leave parking immediately. One person behaved very aggressively. I have also taken photos of the cars illegally parking in the backyard. Illegal parking in the backyard happen quiet often. After a while, a terrible bumping with the hammer forced us to leave our flat. While we have been getting into our car, one person started to run toward us with a heavy hammer in his hand. Fortunately, we have managed to get into the car and stared to drive. That man, looking like mad, tried to hit us through the window of the car. It was a miracle, that with quick maneuver, we have managed to avoid to be hit by that man. When hit by such a heavy hammer, it could cause immediate the death. Sitting in the car, it is impossible to avoid to be hit. The man fallowed our car but seeing that we are leaving quickly, furious he threw the hammer trying to hit the back screen of the car. We were shocked because such an attack could end tragically to us. We think that this was another attempt to kill. Immediately after the attack, we reported this to the police (at the police station). We were astonished that no police car was sent to the place where the attack took place. We spent the entire day outside of the flat being afraid of another attack of that psychopath. We would like to ask Mr. President Kaczyński and Mr. Premier Tusk to make intervention in the Australian Government about repeated attempts to kill. As European and Polish citizens, we would like to ask to ensure us that we could live safely in Australia. In the time when Polish troops stay in Iraq we Polish citizens are deprived basic right to be safe in Australia. Why do not send Polish troops to prevent Polish citizens from attackers? Polish soldiers should protect members of the Polish nation. The prevention us (Polish and European citizens) from terrorist attacks is the main task of the Polish Government and Polish President. In the situation when we have been subjected to attempts on our life for so long time and the Polish Government doing nothing in order to prevent us, then the Polish Government takes responsibility for all damage done to us. We would like to ask to direct our matter to the representatives of the European Union who are responsible for safety of European citizens. Those attempts on our life repeat most often and are more and more dangerous.

From the time of establishment of our Foundation, the real estate agent, Talbot, Birner, Morley Pty. Ltd. had rented a flat below us (flat no. 6) to the mentally ill person. We were not informed about this. From that time we were maltreated by mentally ill person (very noisy music at night and during the day, bumping at walls, shouting and producing inhuman voices). Especially dangerous were cigarettes and narcotic smoke getting into our bedroom through ventilation pipes. Sealing of the ventilation pipes didn’t help. Mentally ill person was also following us in the street, was following my wife in the street, when she was going to the tram stop or train station. Because my wife is a director of the body corporate and we were complaining about his behavior, I was afraid that he can attack my wife. In January 2006, I was attacked by mentally ill person in the street when coming back home with my wife. He hit me into head; it was very dangerous, he could even kill me. We reported this to the police but no protection was given to us. We also reported this to the Polish Consulate and to the Attorney General.

It was impossible to carry out any work connected with the QJF activities. I, as an engineer, would like to add that the building in which we live is “improperly” designed. It rather reminds labour camp barrack than the building of flats. Leaving in such poorly constructed building should be limited to a few months only. We pay a very big sum of money (ab. $250000) for flat in this building. We would like to add that we were forced to buy this flat – it is the cheapest flat for which we could obtain the mortgage from the bank. We asked Mr. Bracks (former Premier) to help us to get a loan from the bank in order to buy the flat in which we could live without loosing our health. We received the letter in which Mr. Bracks told that that he cannot help us in this matter. This is very strange because many people from other communities have very good support from the Labour Government. I am senior staff of the Victorian Government doing very important work for the people in Victoria. Living in such a condition affects my health and the results of my work. We learnt from Mr. Klein that the windows, the balcony, the parking space do not belong to us. This is a very manipulative lying ‘produced’ by Mr. Klein. This is also a very cruel stealing arranged by Mr. Klein, Mr. Adorjan and Mr. Shadbolt. In this flat it is impossible to live (we need to whisper, it’s impossible to listen to the music, it’s impossible to have guests or even cook). The most dangerous situation is connected with construction of the building next to our building. That construction was done very unprofessionally and become a source of the very dangerous process of destroying of our building. Fundament (base) of our building was very seriously damaged and, as a result, our building can collapse. This causes additional stress because this can occur during the night. Mr. Klein, Mr. Adorjan and Mr. Shadbolt are responsible for all that damage and they are doing nothing to prevent us from that unnecessary stress and the serious damage to our building. Value of our flat is decreasing.

It seems that in Australia norms are not respected and Minister for Health does not take seriously matters connected with deteriorating of our health when living in such poorly constructed buildings.

We are shocked that our charitable organization, the Queen Jadwiga Foundation, is so seriously vexed. I would like to stress that we do all work for the Foundation without any payment. The Australian Government is aware of the influence of the Foundation and appreciate the work of the Foundation for the Polish Minority group and Australian communities because we received another grant for our activities. We estimate that a loss for our Foundation is about $100000 as a result of making impossible to work for the Foundation.
