Legal team needed for Fiona Wilson
Former Origin Energy executive and whistleblower Fiona Wilson was detained by the new Queensland Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (QFTAC) and injected against her will and without any charges laid against her. Fiona has since been released but must report for her monthly injections otherwise she will be detained again.
Fiona is appealing this and the next hearing is on May 8th in Brisbane. Fiona has found a barrister to represent her in court and we are now seeking funds to pay for that, and the various medical reports in preparation for her appeal.
It is the opinion of an independent Clinical and Consulting Psychologist, and a qualified Counsellor, that Fiona was/is suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following the ordeal of blowing the whistle on the coal seam gas industry - and is NOT delusional, as the QFTAC have claimed.
The QFTAC are interpreting very broad definitions in Fiona's case. Fiona was merely trying to contact the relevant Queensland Minister about the evidence that she was exposing. Instead of acting on Fiona's evidence, the Minister referred her to QFTAC.
Details of the QFTAC and Fiona's case are on Twitter here:
Proactive intelligence agencies undoubtedly have their place, particularly in an ever-more-sophisticated world of anti-government activity. But so, of course, do concepts of open government, transparent and accountable law enforcement, and the right to dissent.
Unfortunately, the online QFTAC brochure is long on why ‘fixated persons’ must be monitored, but regrettably short on whether, and if so how, its own activities are. With no mention of any kind of public interest monitor, we’re left to wonder just precisely who is fixating on the people fixating on the fixated people.

Fiona has since moved hundreds of kilometres away from Brisbane to begin a new life with her partner, but is still trapped in this new system. Fiona has exhausted her bank account fighting this to date but now needs a barrister to appeal the QFTAC's harsh new laws.
Update 20th February 2018: A new court hearing date of 8 May has been arranged to allow time to brief the legal team and collect the necessary reports.
More discussion about this matter is on the George Bender facebook group page, here:
I am doing well and staying strong.
No decision was made yesterday.
Despite receipt of independent doctors report and notification of his attendance at hearing, by phone (this being reason for last adjournment due to insufficient time given to have my independent doctor available), the Tribunal opened proceedings with a decision already made to exclude appearance by phone of my independent doctor to this hearing.
Reasons given were that his report was a couple of months old due to adjournments and I allegedly gave instructions to the doctor for writing of his report.
I gave response confirming several discussions have taken place since this report and my doctor was here to provide his independent opinion against his report.
Further confirmed the instructions were issued by my lawyer who the report had been addressed to.
Further evidence of instructions given by my lawyer were also outlined in the doctors report.
I sought to apply my rights for a second independent review to be heard.
Hearing briefly adjourned for Tribunal to consider.
Returned to a decision made to exclude the attendance and opinion being heard from my second independent review doctor.
My independent doctor is highly respected and well regarded in the industry. His current appointments include the Head of Department at a well known hospital, Chairman and Ministerial Appointee and Medical Consultant on various Boards.
A highly qualified professional whose opinion should be heard and respected, particularly in circumstances where there is a differing of opinion by both doctors in regards to diagnosis and treatment.
To remove ability for independent doctor to give his opinion and only allow current doctor to give advice at hearing was not considered fair and reasonable by me and thus I left the hearing after my repeated requests to have him included were simply ignored.
Request for adjournment was further denied.
Proceeding went ahead without me in attendance.
While waiting for phone call outside, I was approached by the current treating doctor to advise me Tribunal proceeded and they concluded without a decision being made.
Matter will be considered further and a decision will be posted in the mail.
All that can be done now is to await the final outcome.
Complete shock and disregard by the use of powers granted under the Act. Truth walks slowly.....
Here is today's update from Fiona:
To describe ones personal experience in the actions undertaken by those in power, who have been granted rights by our own government, to remove control of ones life by forcibly administering mind controlling drugs that create memory loss and further impair on ones ability to function as a human being, one might say is insufferable. Others might use the words: disgraceful, discreditable, despicable, culpable, dishonourable, objectionable, unforgivable, deplorable, unjustifiable or even criminal.
These events are absolutely horrendous, and I still don’t know if I will ever be able to move on past these experiences. The trauma caused by the defenceless acts, undertaken by those who hold a duty of care in protecting the lives of every human being, is unbearable.
In a clinical report issued August 2018, I continue to hold a mental illness referred to as 'Delusional Disorder' for continuing to maintain personal beliefs to particular events which occurred and by my refusal to agree with the personal opinions of a treating Psychiatrist who performs 'Google' searches on complex IT matters and has ability to gaze into a crystal ball that can foresee my future.
These actions are being used to support the continuance of a Treatment Authority giving power to others to foricibly administer mind controlling drugs, without consent that will magically cause the truth to disappear and evidence to be dismissed by their unique powers.
Despite being presented with evidence on statements made of cyberbullying and evidence tampering, in addition to multiple reports from professional treating specialists who dispute the current diagnosis and treatment, a Treatment Authority still remains in place almost one year on. A recommendation by the treating Psychiatrist is made in this report to commence injections of psychosis medication as soon as the matter is heard by the courts, or earlier if there are unduly delays.
A review of the Treatment Authority is now being heard before the Court on Friday 12 October 2018 at 2pm. This hearing will determine who is granted the rights to control my life and make decisions for me with regards to treatment and my health.
An Appeal with regards to my circumstances and treatment has also been listed for Mention before the Surpreme Court on 16 October 2018. A hearing date is likely to be set for the matter to be heard at a later date.
Forced injections of Abilify ceased in February 2018. There has been no deterioration in health except during the period in which injections were being administered from October 2017 to February 2018, without consent.
The trauma from these events are insignificant in comparison to the way it feels when my mind is forcibly altered against my will until I become emotionless with no sense of desire or self worth.
The frieghtening thing is that those who are subjected to this type of treatment, have no say in the matter, and never have the reasonable opportunity for their voice to be heard as it is simply dismissed under the label awarded as 'mental illness'.
Despite these actions, I have remained positive and committed in protecting my rights as a human being and further retain the strength, power and perseverance to see this abuse of powers, through to the very end.
This is the result of my friends and family and many supporters who were so massively important to my positivity, survival and recovery through all of this, I'm doing this for them too. The incredible support staff, my lawyer and private medical team are only part of the story of enabling injections to defer and getting me this far, I wouldn't have made it through without you lot around me.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO YOU ALL...
Donations still needed to fund lawyer
Lawyer, Michael Burrows has now changed firms and has been appointed Senior Associate and Head of Criminal Law at Armstrong Legal. With vast experience and the support of a professional team, Armstrong Legal have kindly agreed to take over the matter at a significantly reduced cost.
The Review Tribunal hearing set for 12 October 2018 is going to be a life changing event. All donations are now pretty crucial to this being worthwhile and a success, so any and all support would be absolutely amazing.
Discussions remain ongoing to have this story shared but due to pending legal proceedings, we cannot release many details at this point in time.
REQUEST FOR PROFESSIONAL I.T. SPECIALIST SUPPORT
A further call out is also needed for any Professional I.T. Specialists with qualifications, that can review and decipher scripts written, installed and run across personal devices and further provide a written report and professional opinion on the rules and events applied, specifically targeting two emails received from Fair Work Commission and Miktysh. These emails are one of the many events at the centre of this diagnosis labelled ‘delusional disorder’
The truth walks slowly…….
Independent psychs & everyone else that deals with Fi knows she's stable and is no threat to anyone. It's PTSD FFS
The next hearing is 24 July so QFTAC are creating a lot of tension.
Just an update, I have now completed assessments with the Head of Psychiatary at a major interstate hospital (outside of Qld) and further with a Senior Psychiatrist in Lismore.
Both appointments went really well with initial findings opposing the original diagnosis of delusional disorder.
The Head of Psychiatry has indicated the case will go two ways; (1) I'm either paranoid, or (2) there has been a gross injustice with further suggestions that he is leaning towards the latter.
Currently awaiting written reports to confirm this diagnosis and discussion.
Initial report from Senior Psychiatrist states:-
'I found nothing in our interview to suggest the presence of a delusional disorder, or of any significant mental health problems, now or previously. Ms Madden is an intelligent and thoughtful soul, with a respect for the legal process and a mature and organized approach to her predicament.'
Head of Psychiatary's report is expected shortly.
I have now engaged the services of Michael Burrows from Nyst Lawyers to represent this case. Michael is confident of a good outcome and is further eager and determined to fight this case on its merits.
Public media stories are currently underway with the Guardian, BuzzFeed and ABC's 4 Corners/7.30pm Report.
Yesterday's Mention requested a further adjournment to allow time for reports to be finalised and to call upon witnesses ready for an upcoming Appeal Hearing. Another Mention has been set for 12 June 2018 with a Hearing date expected to be set at this time.
Despite injections ceasing 3 months ago and no deterioration in health, news has been received that the current treating Psychiatrist is looking to discuss and resume treatment with me today. It is unclear on what type of treatment will be administered or the reason behind this decision.
We are still looking for funding support to help cover the legal costs and any assistance in this area would be greatly appreciated. Any recommendations or referrals on media stories is also welcome. The initial stories will be the abuse of powers by QFTAC to detain individuals for simply seeking justice.
Further updates will be provided following my meeting at 4.30pm today with the treating Psychiatrist at Mackay Base Hospital in relation to further treatment resuming.
Thank you to everyone for your kind support and contributions and most importantly to those working extremely hard in the background to fight this injustice and alert the public of these events.
I can't thank everyone enough x
