Ì am informed as of about 4pm this afternoon a decision was made by justice Pickering at Sydney district court that Ian lazar is unfit to stand trial and he is being referred to the mental health tribunal.

This means they will review if he is permanently unfit which means he will then have special hearings on all of his criminal matters with a view to being psychiatricly institutionalized. If they think he may be well later trials will be postponed for possibly 12 months.

Is lazar presently in jail or on bail ?

FRAUD WARNING: IAN LAZAR. Former bankrupt. FORMER PATIENT OF MENTAL HEALTH HOSPITAL, MOSMAN, SYDNEY. ON BAIL AWAITING TRIAL

Last week Lazar was found fit to stand trial by a psychiatrist from the Department of Public Prosecutions (DPP). Lazar’s criminal barrister Mr Greg James, a Queen's Counsel and former Judge of the Supreme Court, wanted a hearing at the New South Wales Mental Health Review Tribunal. Mr James was past President of the New South Wales Mental Health Review Tribunal.

A decision was made this afternoon. The following update has just arrived:

"As of about 4.00pm this afternoon a decision was made by justice Pickering at Sydney district Court that Ian Lazar is unfit to stand trial and he is being referred to the mental health tribunal. This means they will review if he is permanently unfit which means he will then have Special Hearings on all of his criminal matters with a view to being psychiatrically institutionalised. If they think he may be well later, trials will be postponed for possibly 12 months”.

In civil hearings the Tribunal can approve special medical treatment (sterilisation). I believe Lazar is categorised as a forensic patient, so may not be eligible.

I believed that the rat was caught in his own trap. I was wrong. The rat has a bolt hole called the Mental Health Review Tribunal.

Read the Forensic Guidelines for The Mental Health Review Tribunal and you can form your own opinion. Lazar is now classed as a ‘forensic patient’

And weep!


The fabricated medical by Lazar’s psychiatrist and psychologist has paid off. The plan was formulated three years ago in January 2015. There is still work for them to do with the Tribunal but the Tribunal is a get out of jail pass.

The 'not fit to stand trial' was all part of the plan. Lazar is an actor that for twenty years has been conning people. The courtroom was just another stage for him to act on but with even more earnestness as it his life that is now at stake.

He has already conned two Judges who were not prepared to dismiss the manufactured reports of his hired medical team. There was also a Magistrate that appeared to want to revoke his bail but did not. It had been set weeks earlier by a higher authority in the pecking order – a Judge.

Luck was involved but it has paid off. The goal was to get Lazar bail, then get him to Greg James’s Tribunal. This James has done. It is all downhill from here.

Lazar is nuts. The Department of Public Prosecution’s psychiatrist has now agreed with Lazar’s two psychiatrists. An unanimous decision.

There are twists and turns to Lazar’s Grand Plan. One avenue is to plead not guilty of his crimes on the grounds of mental illness when he committed them. This is a big ask that has the best result.– free with no conviction. See Point 4K.3.2 below.

More likely is this scenario:
The Mental Health Review Tribunal to decide that he is unlikely to get better and become ‘fit’ to stand trial in the next 12 months. The Tribunal must also decide whether he is suffering from a disorder or condition for which treatment is available in hospital, and whether he should be detained in a hospital. The court make an order that he be detained somewhere other than a hospital. Detained at home?

When found not fit to be tried within 12 months, there will be no ordinary criminal trial. Instead, the court will hold a ‘special hearing’ to decide on if guilty or not.

A ‘special hearing’ is not recorded as a criminal trial.

He has the following options:

4K.3.1: Not guilty.
If found not guilty he will be acquitted (allowed to go free), just like in an ordinary criminal trial.

4K.3.2: Not guilty on the grounds of mental illness.
He would have to convince the Court that he was nuts at the time of committing his crimes. Not likely, but the result is tempting. If this is the verdict of the court as a result of the special hearing, he will be held as a forensic patient in a prison hospital or forensic facility, unless he is given conditional or unconditional release to live in the community on conditions or unconditionally. As he hasn’t threatened to kill anyone lately He would naturally apply to live in the community.

4K.3.3: That an offence was committed.
If the special hearing finds that he committed the offence or another offence, he will be held as a forensic patient and the court will decide on a sentence (penalty), just as it would in an ordinary criminal trial. However, because he has been found unfit to stand trial, the outcome is called a ‘limiting term’.

If the Court would have given him a sentence had it been an ordinary criminal trial, then it will set an equivalent term 'limiting term'. At this point the Court may make an order for his detention in a hospital or other place and he will be referred to The Mental Health Review Tribunal which will make a report to the court on:

  • whether he is suffering from a mentally illness; and/or
  • whether he should be detained in a hospital.
The court will consider these recommendations and make an order about whether or not he should have to serve the 'limiting term', and if so where and how. The Mental Health Review Tribunal will regularly review his case.

4K.3.4: Found 'fit to be tried' while serving a limiting term and release from a forensic order.
If he later becomes fit to be tried, the Mental Health Review Tribunal notifies the Court and the NSW Director of Public Prosecutions.
If the Tribunal considers he is no longer a danger to himself or to the community, it can release him from the forensic order.
I read this as he being found 'unfit to be tried'. Receiving a limited term of say, six years. Serves two years basket weaving and claims all better now and is released into the community to renew his previous activities.

4K.3.5: Is there a criminal conviction recorded if a person is not fit to be tried?
Where a court and the Mental Health Review Tribunal have decided he is not fit to be tried, even if he is later found at a special hearing to have committed an offence, sometimes a criminal conviction will be recorded. Meaning, sometimes a criminal conviction will not be recorded?

As previously mentioned, there are twists and turns in this system that Mr James would know in order to free Lazar with the minimum of justice, if any, to him.

In the meanwhile our little mate is still on parole and studying hard the symptoms of Bipolar for the coming test with the Tribunal.

FRAUD WARNING: IAN LAZAR. Former bankrupt. FORMER PATIENT OF MENTAL HOSPITALS. DEEMED MENTALLY UNFIT TO STAND TRIAL.

The NSW Police have notified all witnesses, and others, that were to be called to the trial of Lazar that there is a non-publication order on all material and contents of Lazar’s fitness hearing. They have advised that such information cannot be released to any form of media for publication.

Darn it! We are interested in what other mental problems our little mate may have conjured up in an attempt to minimise or prevent jail time.

Tribunal hearings are usually every six months and are open to the public and registered victims. However, this depends on where he is held - such as a hospital or prison and the provision made for visitors. If he has been conditionally released into the community the Tribunal hearing is held either at the Tribunal’s hearing room in Gladesville or via a videolink. Although open to the public there is no guarantee that you will get to see Lazar perform as the hearing may be declared closed.

The reason can be found in the Forensic Guidelines of the Mental Health Tribunal Review:
“The information considered by the Tribunal in its hearings can be very personal and sensitive for the patient. The Tribunal is able to exclude people from part or all of a hearing, if it is desirable for the welfare of the patient……….The dignity of the patient should be respected at all times.………”

“Very personal and sensitive for the patient….dignity”…Ha!

Justice John Pickering was the judge who referred Lazar to the Mental Health Review Tribunal. Seventeen years ago he became a New South Wales Crown prosecutor then rose to the office of Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions. He could have been the now Regina v Lazar. His Honour would have been aware of what Lazar was up to with his crazy act but had no options but to refer Lazar to the Mental Health Review Tribunal.as both the DPP’s and Lazar’s psychiatrists agreed that Lazar was mad.

The charges against Lazar as they now stand are - *

  • 2014/00320266-011 / Actual offence – Dishonestly obtain financial advantage etc by deception-T1 / 55949406
  • Charge not included on Indictment (ID 41153981)
  • 2014/00320266-027 / Actual offence – Obtain money etc by deception >$15000-T1 /
  • 2014/00320266-028 / Actual offence – Knowingly deal with proceeds of crime-SI / 55949406
  • 2014/00320266-029 / Actual offence – Fraudulently omit to account money >$15000 / 55949406
  • 2014/00320266-030 / Actual offence – Dishonestly obtain financial advantage etc by deception-T1 / 55949406
  • 2014/00320266-031 / Actual offence – Steal cattle / 55949406
  • 2014/00320266-032 / Actual offence – Publish etc false misleading material to obtain property-T1 / 55949406
Justice Pickering’s orders from the Hearing on 20 February 2018 were:
*Accused is unfit for trial – referred to Mental Health Review Tribunal.
1. I find the accused unfit to be tried.
2. In accordance with s 14 of the Mental Health (Criminal Procedure) Act 1990, I refer this matter to the Mental Health Review Tribunal.
3. I direct the court registry to provide the following documentation to the Tribunal:

a. a copy of this finding
b. a transcript of these proceedings
c. a copy of any psychiatric reports tendered to the court during these proceedings
d. a copy of any additional reports tendered as evidence to the court pertaining the person’s fitness to stand trial
Directions
1. I make a non-publication order in respect of the reports until the decision of the Mental Health Review Tribunal
2. Liberty for Crown to relist pending result of MHRT


According to the Liquidator appointed to his failed Companies, millions of dollars have gone missing but the only dollar amount Lazar has been charged under "deception" and "fraud" is $15,000?

FRAUD WARNING: IAN LAZAR. Former bankrupt. FORMER PATIENT OF MENTAL HOSPITALS. DEEMED MENTALLY FIT TO STAND TRIAL.

The Mental Health Review Tribunal has accessed Lazar and deemed him fit to stand trial. This was despite his valiant attempt to convince them otherwise. Quite a performance I have been told.

This means he has been released back into the Court system and the NSW Director of Public Prosecutions can continue prosecution as was before the interruption with the mental health caper. His Court hearings have now been set down for next year.

Lazar is still on bail but, get this, he has yet again been caught and charged for breach of the bail conditions set. He did not disclose certain business dealings. This makes the second breach and yet he is still free.

  • In July 2016 bail was revoked for allegedly threatening to kill a car dealer. The police facts sheet also alleged that while on bail Mr Lazar had "continued to commit criminal offences", lied to the Australian Tax Office, and "continued to try and interfere with or intimidate potential witnesses and actual witnesses”. See Post 29.
  • In August 2106 bail refused. See Post 44.
  • In October 2016 Lazar was granted bail to attend the Mosman Holiday Hilton for a few weeks for he was feeling poorly. After release, bail was continued. See Posts 56 & 57.
New stricter bail conditions now require him to have the police vet all business deals. Why anyone would be doing business with him at all is surprising.

The police have been notified of the Court dates. It is estimated it will be 10 -11 weeks for the three Court hearings set down for next year. This gives him another year of freedom to stuff up and have yet more charges laid.

  • There will be a pre-trail hearing on 18 February 2019 for one week to sort out any other issues.
  • The trial of alleged cattle duffing and defrauding an 88 year old woman of her house has been set down to start on 13 May 2019 - approximate 6 to 7 weeks.
  • The gold bullions/pervert the course of justice trial to start 22 July 2019 - 3 week estimate.
  • The stolen car trial - 21st October 2019 - 7 day estimate.
It is believed that he has spent around $400,000 on his barrister fees to date. A dent in the retirement nest egg.
