I have never heard of Mr Reid, wasn’t able to find anything online regarding him as well.
Peter Michael Komiazyk who was acquitted of the Russell St bombings changed his name to Peter Reid and he's been arrested recently with Craig Minogue for historic rape/abductions.

Could it be the same Peter Reed (Reid) real estate agent? Weird and I might be totally wrong but it does look like the same man.

But why has he come up at the Royal Commission on the management of informants? And before he was arrested with Minogue on historic charges?
Someone named "Peter Reid" was a client of Gobbo's...

"Operation Carron, however, resulted in the arrests of various individuals, including Darren Jackson, Traian Duma and Peter Reid. Those three individuals were represented by the law firm that Ms Gobbo was employed by at that time, Mr Sergrave admitted in his testimony."

Nicola Komiazyk is the daughter of Terence and Christine Hodson (deceased) and partner of Peter Michael Komiazyk (aka Peter Reed)

Welly well. Thanks PD.

So it might not be looking like so much of a coincidence now that the girl the Russell Street bombers had abducted and raped just happened to be in the building making a statement when the bombs went off.

Is a hunch, actually the brain trying to tell you something that your unconsciously overlooked? Wylie had a hunch about the raid upon Reed... was Reed prepared?

I'll wait until someone else stitches all this together. Reed-Reid-Komiazyk should have left the country imo.

Bit of blending happening but here's the thread for Minogue and the man with many names rape/abduction charges: https://www.bigfooty.com/forum/threads/craig-minogue-russell-street-bomber-faces-historic-rape-abduction-charges.1197106/

Nicola Gobbo was given almost $2 million in public funding to assemble a team of top-ranked lawyers as part of a failed bid to conceal her role as a registered police informer.

The Age can reveal Victoria Police underwrote the former barrister’s involvement in a two-year legal battle to suppress a damning report into alleged professional misconduct by Ms Gobbo and senior police that ultimately sparked a royal commission.

Victoria Police has spent another $3.4 million on its own legal fees fighting disclosure of Ms Gobbo’s work as a supergrass in the long-running case that ended in a stinging defeat in the High Court.
Defending itself before the Royal Commission into the Management of Police Informants, which resumes on Monday, has cost the force another $6.5 million in legal fees, or about $32,000 a day since last December.


“Victoria Police acknowledges that the court proceedings related to these matters have been expensive, but they were a necessary cost,” a police spokesman said.“We were compelled to take legal action through the courts because the protection of human life is, and always will be, our absolute priority.” Ms Gobbo worked as barrister for a who's who of Melbourne's underworld from 1998 to 2009 and has claimed her double life as a registered police informer led to the arrest and conviction of more than 380 criminals. She was first recruited in 1995, when she was a law student. Legal proceedings were brought by Victoria Police in 2016 to prevent the Director of Public Prosecutions notifying Ms Gobbo’s former clients that their convictions could have been compromised by her covert work as an informer.

The finding that the convictions could have been compromised had been made in a secret report by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission and was supported by other internal police investigations into the consequences of using a lawyer as an informer.

Paul Dale is up today and no surprise he has a lot to say. He's had all his documents in a secured facility ... probably more secure than the Drug Squad and said he had a drunken one night stand with Gobbo. How embarrassing.

Key points:
  • Mr Dale was visibly angry during his testimony
  • He accused police and Ms Gobbo, known as Lawyer X, of "working hand in hand" against him
  • He said Victoria Police intentionally disregarded the law

I mean, how dare they?! Don't they know that the law doesn't apply to StKilda Rd. coppers?!

The Gobbo-Dale thing was common knowledge over a decade ago.

How do you think the OPI managed to set this whole thing in to motion in the first place?

Remember the Herald -Sun being hand in hand with senior VicPol cronies, and the Liberal Party, back then in an orchestrated attack on the OPI, which led to the Liberal Party disbanding & neutering the OPI.?

Welcome to the state of entrenched corruption.

I'd tell the odd person about this stuff years ago and most of them looked at me like I was crazy. I was just someone with a pathological hatred of authority. They don't think I'm crazy any more.

I did hear about it but meant its embarrassing he feels he has to excuse himself of responsibility and losing his senses in shagging the enemy because he was drunk.

Do you remember the story that was, probably still is getting around Victoria more like an urban myth ... of the crook who picked up a girl for a one night stand rambled his head off all night, got up in the morning and her wardrobe door was slightly ajar? There was a VicPol uniform hanging in it.

ha ha similars.

That reminds me of a scene from the Sydney Underbelly series.

I won't quote snake because he gets sooky but Dale's not doing anything of the sort. It looks to me like he's mad as hell and more than happy to have his say in a public forum. That's not to suggest he's not a crim though.

Imo he's acting a bit, his little rant like he was about to cry "l believe in justice!" I swear sprockets l replayed it four or five times for a LOL.

The most serious charges against him were dropped, he wasn't acquitted. He could very easily trip up or get cornered through these proceedings and they will have no hesitation in going for him again. IMO.

Anything could happen. I'm reading him as nervous and he hasn't mentioned the ODPP yet.

He's right to be angry about using Gobbo and perverting the course of justice though imo. Even if I think he probably knew she was an informant, if Strawhorn knew imo he did. He just didn't think she'd turn on him?
