DID BARRISTER KNOW OF PLOT? – Friday March 8 2013

– An ex-detective was quizzed by the nation’ stop crime-fighting body about whether a high-profile criminal barrister had prior knowledge of a double murder, a jury heard yesterday.
Paul Dale, who has pleaded not guilty to lying to the Australian Crime Commission, was quizzed by it in 2008 about his relationship with barrister Nicola Gobbo and the murders of police informer Terence Hodson and his wife Christine.
A Supreme Court jury yesterday heard a recording of the ACC examination in which Mr Dale said he had had multiple affairs, including with Ms Gobbo.
Mr Dale also said he registered numerous phones in false names after his arrest for drug offences in 2003.
But Mr Dale said he did that so he could cheat on his wife with at least two other police officers and Ms Gobbo.
He said he registered the phones because he wanted to maintain privacy in his life.
He said he had many drunken escapades with Ms Gobbo and that he had sexual intercourse with Ms Gobbo, whom he said had also provided him with legal advice.
Mr Dale also denied being paid $10,000 to give a statement in support of Tommy Ivanovic, a small-time drug dealer and friend of Carl Williams,who was jailed in the early 2000s for killing a man in a road rage incident.
The allegation was put to Mr Dale during a 2008 ACC examination concerning the Hodson double murder.
Mr Dale said he met Williams through Ivanovic, and continued to visit Ivanovic after he had been jailed for the road-rage killing.
During the ACC examination, Mr Dale repeatedly said he did not recall incidents he was being asked about.
The trial, before Justice Elizabeth Curtain, is continuing – Padraic Murphy


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
