Anti-Muslim campaigner jailed
September 27, 2007
A RACIST pamphlet criticising Muslims was generated by a woman as revenge against two police officers, a Sydney court heard yesterday.
A seven-year feud between Michelle Jane Alford and a former neighbour and police officer Rebecca Francis was the catalyst for Alford creating and distributing a flyer titled “Prophet Mohamed Australia Day BBQ”.
Alford, 35, was sent to jail for 16 months for stabbing Ms Francis three times in the arm at Caringbah railway station on January 1, 2005.
Police charged Alford on January 23 this year after she created and distributed flyers with Ms Francis’ address as well as containing Constable Amy Birdsall’s contact details.
Constable Birdsall was the officer in charge of the stabbing investigation.
Alford, a member of the Australia First Party, wrote on the flyers the Australia Day barbecue was to “celebrate everything that’s great about Australia and being Australian”.
Bankstown Local Court heard Alford criticised Islam describing it as a “furphy imagined by those of Middle Eastern descent”.
The pamphlet, distributed to homes in Yagoona and Belmore, also stated: “The Koran . . . is just propaganda material put forward by the Lebanese as an excuse to rape women . . . and wreak havoc upon Cronulla Beach.”
Alford, of Peakhurst, pleaded guilty to contravening an AVO against Ms Francis and intimidating a police officer.
In sentencing Alford yesterday, Magistrate Paul Falzon described the document, that police found saved on Alford’s computer, as “highly provocative” and “vindictive”.
Police were alerted to the situation when members of the public who received the pamphlets called to complain and the officers were called in to be interviewed and both nominated Alford as the source.
Alford was yesterday sentenced to 18 months jail, with a non-parole period of 12 months.
Alford lodged an appeal but was refused bail and remains in custody.
She will remain in custody until her appeal is heard at Campbelltown District Court at a date to be fixed.
