    One seriously sick-in-the-head dude :

    Ron Brierley told police officers quizzing him over a cache of images of naked children he had saved to several devices that the pictures were "all perfectly okay" and he had downloaded them because he thought they "looked interesting".

    Meanwhile the Former BIL Empire has a Swipe & Attempts to Bite PWC:


    https://www.stuff.co.nz/business/ind...rley-companies

    PWC sued for $1.5b for allegedly providing wrong advice to Brierley companies


    Accounting business PWC is being sued for more than $1.5 billion in a New Zealand court for allegedly providing wrong advice to companies in the Brierley group, but denies liability.

    A judgment by Associate Judge Kenneth Johnston at the High Court in Wellington says BIL NZ Treasury, GL Management PTE, GL and Brierley Holdings say they acted on advice received from PWC between 1998 and 2018 as to how they could use substantial historical losses.

    There was no evidence of formal contract for services, but there was a letter written to the companies by PWC in relation to an original engagement dated May 28, 1998, the judge said.

    BIL NZ Treasury and Brierley Holdings are New Zealand registered companies, owned by GL, which is based in Bermuda, Companies Office records show. GL Management PTE is not registered in New Zealand.



    The Brierley companies said they accumulated losses of $1.58b and were seeking to recover them, the judge said.



    “It was in relation to this issue, how these losses could be carried forward, that the plaintiffs say they sought advice from PWC. ”

    They said PWC provided initial advice and ongoing advice in relation to this over the years, the judge said.

    The companies said that during the 2019 financial year it became apparent that the advice that PWC had provided was wrong, and that as a result the opportunity to use the tax losses was lost.

    They sued PWC claiming the potential value of the tax losses but PWC denied liability, the judge said.


    Okay - it looks like the indirect Singaporean Owners are trying to recover some Dead Losses from the PWC Bean Counters ..

    If the Losses are deceased and there is nothing in way of material business surplus to have offset them against - has there really
    been any real Loss for a few resident BIL Companies left here in NZ, when the rest are mostly offshore ?

    Could be interesting watching this spin out ..

    Might be some more un-Dead Losses created after this completes the cycle or a wad of the Bean Counters Ca$h
    to syphon off back up to Singapore depending on how things go ..

    Ron 14 months in jail .... 7 months non-parole
    . To say extreme valuations are “justified” is also to say that long-term market losses are “justified.” .

    Doesn't seem a lot but he is no longer Sir and his reputation is in tatters.
    He will be remembered for this rather than anything else he has done in his life.

    So just three charges Stuck (probably just possession ones) & all the rest were withdrawn ?

    Did someone finally wake up that he didn't know how to operate some of the devices after all ?

    It may have looked beyond ridiculous for an elderly guy, stooped over, moving very slowly with aid of a cane
    to be done on some of the more outlandish ones

    Poor b*gg*r was probably just wishing he was younger again & made the grave mistake of collecting
    a vast library of unsavory stuff .. possibly not knowing how to get rid of it all ..

    Does it sound like he did not know how to operate the devices?

    ‘Judge Huggett said he was stopped at an airport and had images on his devices. He told officials he thought some of the children were as young as 8 and the oldest about 20. He also had documents about a subscription service of girls.

    He told them he found the images interesting, and he had looked at them the night before he was caught.

    More images were found on his dining room table, on a device in a hallway table and in his bedroom at his home.

    He denied there was a sexual element to them.’

    The judge said there were 46,794 images in all. Some were sexualised poses, with girls as young as 4 wearing underwear and swimwear.

    There was also a story about the sexual abuse of an 11-year-old.

    Brierley had admitted he had a lifelong attraction to pre-pubescent girls.

    A doctors’ report before the court said he had a pedophilic disorder and a hoarding disorder.

    I know - Not defending his 'offending' at all, but probably quite a bit of Media Beat Up on this one, while the
    worst of Drug Kingpins & other Criminal elements out there receive next to very little exposure despite the
    damage they do to Society..

    The price you pay when you are (were) a Sir for a start.
    The jury of public opinion is never based on fair or logic - a beat-up on Ron will sell more clicks than one on someone unknown.

    What he has done is just as bad if not worse than any other criminal activity - contributing directly to the exploitation & harm of innocent children as young as 4 years old for his depraved satisfaction.

    There is absolutely no excuse for his behavior - may he feel the rot in jail, the disgusting sicko.
