Grant King in Wellington, living with Sequoia King? Yes, says Instagram.

My goodness, Grant “Gypsy Pants” King is certainly living up to his name recently.

A spell in Whangaparaoa with his Mum, followed by a stint in Taumarunui with one of his elder daughters, a brief stop-off in Auckland, followed by a “hunkering down” in Wellington with another daughter.

As a publically disclosed beneficiary, King will have needed to provide Work & income NZ with a permanent residential address in order to meet obligation criteria for receiving same.

Hopefully, he is keeping his WINZ Case Manager advised of his nomadic wanderings (we will let them know, just to be sure).

If King wants to remain under the radar, then having photos of him petting a cat being posted onto Instagram, which then discloses his whereabouts, probably wasn’t his smartest move.

 

Is Grant King back in Helensville?

It seems a number of sources are reporting that Grant King may have now moved out of Taumarunui, and back into 46K Garfield Rd in Helensville.

I am aware that there was a growing negative community pressure in Taumarunui against King’s presence, but up until very recently, I wasn’t aware that this pressure had resulted in an outcome.

If my “eyes on the ground” people in Helensville have any information pertaining to he above possibility, please let me know.

Grant King 2015 Verdict Waitakere District Court

Auckland District Court grants indefinite Restraining Order against Grant Norman King

In a Judgment that was delivered in just 8 days from the date of the Court Hearing, the Auckland District Court has granted an indefinite Restraining Order against Grant King.

The application for the Restraining Order was made by me, against Grant King, and for the second time, I have been successful in winning in Court against this callous and unrepentant individual.

Since 2011, Grant King has been making anonymous false and defamatory posts about me in various online forums, in a longitudinal attempt to try and attack and discredit me.

King did this in retaliation to me exposing his criminal past, and because I have assisted various statutory agencies to secure 12 convictions (including an 18 month jail sentence) against King between 2011 -2016.

To put this number in context: these 12 convictions represent 25% of Kings total conviction tally to date.

King had engaged in a similar vicious smear tactic against Rocna Anchors some years ago, when he was fired for theft and embezzlement, and then King subsequently anonymously posted false and defamatory information about Rocna Anchors.

This action against Rocna bought the company to its knees in a commercial sense, and in those days, it was well nigh impossible to fight back.

Not anymore.

The Court has instructed King to not only cease and desist his online posting activity, they have ordered King to remove any and all posts related to me.

Failure by King to comply with the Court Order will result in either jail time, or significant and ongoing fines for non-compliance.

What was King’s defence?

Are you ready for this?

(Ahem): “It wasn’t me”.

Sadly for King, the Judge didn’t buy it, and awarded the decision in my favour.

King had to drive the better part of 300km from Taumarunui to attend the Hearing (and then 300 km back home), and even tried to have the matter adjourned until December 2017, but to no avail.

The Restraining Order is indefinite, so if King EVER posts anything about me again, anywhere, and under any name – he is toast.

Remember this name: Richard Craven (he could be Grant Kings apprentice-in-waiting).

“Fair Go” has just exposed this guy as a Class A rip-off artist in West Auckland:

The callous arrogance and dismissive attitude of the man towards his clients who he has ripped off will be familiar to readers of this website.
