WELLINGTON, New Aland’s (AP) – One of New Aland’s most prominent businessmen on Thursday pleaded guilty to having images of child sexual abuse, including children under 2.
Ron Brierley’s lawsuits in Australian courts on three charges have led to a rarely mediated procedure to deprive him of the knight he received more than 30 years ago.
The Prime Minister of New Zealand Jac Asinda Ardern has announced that he is initiating a process of falsification for honor, which requires the approval of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain.
Brierley faces up to 10 years in prison upon sentencing. In 2019, some pictures were taken of him at Sydney International Airport, and later authorities found more items in his Sydney home.
One of his guilt requests concerns photos of 2-year-old girls in sexually explicit poses. One refers to a data storage device found in his home that allegedly contained images of more than 1,600 children being abused.
Brierley’s lawyer has disputed the number of images being discussed, saying the two sides have yet to present an agreed set of facts to the Sydney court. The police prosecutor has denied 14 other charges following Bryerley’s conviction.
Now in ’83, in the ’70s and’ 80s, Brierley ran a number of aggressive businesses that made Brierley Investments Ltd. one of the largest corporations in the country. His profile had somewhat faded since the stock market crash of 1987, but he continued to trade in his new home in New Zealand, Australia.
NBR Business Edition Brierley is among New Zealand’s 100 richest people with a fortune estimated at $ 220 million ($ 153 million).
He donated an undisclosed amount to his former high school, Wellington College. The school said that after urging the culprits, it started removing all the signs with Brierley’s name on it, which includes a theater and a sports field.
The court has not yet set a date for the verdict. Brierley’s bail requires him to live in his exclusive Sydney Point Piper home. Following his conviction, he will be added to the New South Wales Child Protection Registry for at least eight years.
Berilli, who was seen walking in court with a cane, did not answer reporters’ questions about his requests, and his lawyer could not immediately comment.
Denise Ritchie, a longtime advocate for the fight against sexual violence against women and children, said she welcomed Ardern’s move to strip Brierley of his chivalry.
“As a result of this predatory behavior, young lives have been irreversibly damaged,” Richie said. “This is a disgusting trade in child rape that stimulates male demand.”
