Six weeks in the slammer
In a first for new Zealand a blogger has been arrested for blogging.
Adolf has never heard of Mr Seimer who apparently has raised the ire of authorities for allegedly defaming members of the judiciary. He was arrested this morning and charged with contempt of court and defamation.
I'm quite surprised such action has not happened before this. Some of the comments one sees on blogs are nothing short of outrageous.
Go and take a look at the gentleman's site. It's pretty hot stuff and I expect it will be taken down before too long.
Maybe Farrar and Co will open a book on the verdict and the length of the ensuing sentence.
