EXCLUSIVE: The use of NSW Police’s controversial Fixated Persons Investigations Unit has been likened to a “proto-fascist squadron” and “political goon squad” with yet another horrifying story of how it has been used to prevent public knowledge of political and police corruption. This major investigation into how the ecosystem of corruption operates from the regions of NSW to Sydney and beyond is presented by Melanie Coutts and Serkan Ozturk.
EXCLUSIVE: A judge has found Constable Daniel Keneally – the NSW Police officer son of high-profile Labor senator Kristina Keneally – acted corruptly by fabricating evidence and lying about receiving death threats which resulted in a completely innocent man imprisoned and forced to spend three weeks in solitary confinement after having his home raided by the controversial Fixated Persons Unit. Yet, in a futile attempt to cover up his wrongdoing, Constable Keneally and his powerful, wealthy family ran to one of Australia’s most expensive defamation lawyers to threaten the victim as well as this very media outlet. But to no avail. Serkan Ozturk reports.
EXCLUSIVE: A coterie of powerful billionaires, prominent News Corp journalists, and a disgraced lawyer who was once charged and then acquitted over his own wife’s murder, as well as conservative organisations closely linked to the Liberal Party are said to have helped and secretly donated to “alleged rapist” Christian Porter’s slush fund for his ultimately doomed defamation battle against the ABC. Tayla Foster and Serkan Ozturk with this major investigation.
EXCLUSIVE: A man who has launched a legal advocacy firm to fight on behalf of victims of police harassment and strip searches was set upon by NSW Police’s controversial Fixated Persons Unit and placed in solitary confinement for three weeks on trumped-up charges that were later dismissed after Constable Daniel Keneally, the police officer son of high-profile Labor senator Kristina Keneally, allegedly fabricated claims that he had received death threats. Serkan Ozturk reports.
EXCLUSIVE: Local councils in Sydney are hopeful the lifting of the Covid lockdown will allow for a “brazen” and “ballsy” furry fox friend that has seemingly made its lair at a number of local schools across the city’s inner-west to slowly return to its normal routine and habits so it does not have to be captured and destroyed. Serkan Ozturk reports.
We are joined by former NSW Fire Commissioner, Greg Mullins, to discuss his new book ‘Firestorm’ about how climate change is increasing our risk of natural disasters, including bushfires that are now more like Hell Fires.

EXCLUSIVE: At the time of his death almost 100 years ago, in 1923, artist Herbert Hepburn Calvert was lauded as “one of the best known painters of Australian birds.” Yet his whimsical but realistic depictions of this nation’s birdlife hid a much darker, tormented soul and criminal life. That ended with a supposed late-night fall in a busy Adelaide hotel while he likely happened to be travelling with a much younger but equally-as-tormented “artist” and convicted felon.
We are joined by historian and Charles Sturt University adjunct professor, Therese Taylor, to discuss our True Crime News Weekly exclusive investigation into the wicked life and death of artist, Herbert Hepburn Calvert. Art, fraud, murder, sexual abuse, suicide and a 100-year long cover-up. With your host Serkan Ozturk.
EXCLUSIVE: A hungry-looking fox has seemingly made its new headquarters in Sydney’s trendy inner-west after being spotted numerous times over the past month, including in the grounds of several local schools where scraps have been much harder to come by because of the Covid lockdown. Serkan Ozturk reports.
