A young man needs your help. His phone has been tapped and his computer hacked in a campaign of harrasment and intimidation. These crimes have been perpetrated by the executive ranks of a company that has spun out of control.
My name's Doug Gillett and I'm a former employee of APN News and Media.
For the past 18 month I've been looking over my shoulder.
I've got to be honest, it's been a nightmare.
My family is worried about me.
You see, I had the nerve to object to a practice of APN News and Media general managers secretly recording conversations in company vehicles.
I threatened to go to the media.
They didn't appreciate the irony.
Since then, I have been the victim of a campaign of victimisation and harassment that has had a serious impact upon my health.
I took a stand to protect the privacy of this company's employees and have paid a heavy price.
My personal computer has been hacked, my mobile phone tapped and my rubbish and personal belongings rifled through.
Private investigators have placed me under surveillance.
I have been the victim of malicious rumours designed to destroy my reputation and credibility.
I have feared for my personal safety.
I have come away from this situation feeling like I have been raped.
That's the only way I can describe it.
My mind has been raped and these ruthless individuals have my soul in a box down in APN News and Media's Brisbane office.
It's in there with all the phone recordings and surveillance that's been gathered on me.
I feel like I've been held captive. I don't want to do the things I enjoy doing. I don't want to see my mates.
These crimes against privacy and common decency have been perpetrated by the jaded editorial executives of a company that has spun out of control.
Please help protect the privacy of future Australians and send a strong message to APN News and Media that privacy is important by signing the petition.
