Return to Dossier of Attacks on the AVN
Stop the AVN are continually claiming that Meryl Dorey, President of the AVN since its inception and a full-time volunteer for the organisation, is personally using every cent that the AVN takes in via donations and memberships. Despite the fact that the organisation’s end of year results have always been audited and have been approved by both the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing (OLGR) which administers charities in NSW and also by the Dept of Fair Trading, the government body that registers incorporated associations, these individuals make defamatory statements about Ms Dorey’s use of AVN Funds.
This group has used these same sorts of tactics to try and get venues to cancel events hosted by the AVN as you will see on the page Censorship and Suppression:
Ken McLeod of Moruya, NSW, a retired air-traffic controller who has been harassing and defaming Meryl Dorey since 2009 and was the original complainant to the Health Care Complaints Commission (HCCC) against both Ms Dorey and the AVN, sent a letter to the Office of Liquor Gaming and Racing (OLGR) on the 14th of August, 2009.
In this letter, Mr McLeod asked the OLGR to revoke the AVN’s charity authority on several grounds. One of which was:
You should be aware that Ms Dorey has admitted on television that she has no qualifications whatever, apart from “having a brain.”
Mr McLeod is obviously completely ignorant of what a charity is and what sort of benefits are accrued by charities in NSW. He feels that being a charity means that we get government funding when in fact, the AVN has NEVER received any funding from either the State or the Federal government:
Ms Dorey is not a qualified health professional and her presentations are completely unbalanced. She is no expert and does not present good science or a balanced view of vaccination issues. The AVN’s posture of a “charity” is a charade and their holding of a charitable fundraising licence is a travesty. That their activities are partly funded by taxpayers via their status as a charity is compiling parody upon farce.
Further on in this document, Mr McLeod makes statements which he is aware are completely untrue. As did Mr Raffaele in his letter to a venue in South Australia, Mr McLeod tries to link Ms Dorey with certain beliefs. The basis of his statements is an article posted by Ms Dorey on the AVN’s blog in 2009. The article, sourced from the newspaper, the Pakistan Daily, was about the dangers of influenza vaccination. This piece was attributed to a journalist at that newspaper but the full article was sourced from the website of David Icke, a British researcher who has certain beliefs about the illuminati and reptilians on Earth. Ms Dorey was unaware of the connection between this article and Mr Icke and in fact, the article did not mention any of these beliefs. Despite knowing that this is the case, Mr McLeod told the OLGR:
But it gets worse. On her “No Compulsory Vaccination” blog 3 Meryl Dorey posted an article titled “Flu is not the Biggest Danger it’s the Vaccine”, which said “we have long crossed the line into a fully-fledged fascist dictatorship………….”and that that the forthcoming compulsory flu vaccination program is a plot run by the Illuminati to insert microchips in every person on the planet in order to take over the Earth. According to the author of the article, the Illuminati are a race of reptilian humanoids and that many prominent figures are reptilian, including George W. Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, Kris Kristofferson, and Boxcar Willie.
Mr McLeod’s constant obsession with anything and everything that Meryl Dorey does and writes on a daily basis and his ongoing complaints and writings about her border on the pathological. There will be much more about his campaign in these pages as time goes on.
