ACC 81/329509
ANOTHER VICTIM OF ACC. ( PEOPLE-HELPING-PEOPLE ?!).

My name is Shaun Hetherington,...and 1 buggered my spine,....getting rid of Willows, outta Te Anau Downs Bay,...East Lake;-Fjordland ,....back in winter of 1979,....under auspices of,...Internal

Affairs Dept',...and of course covered under the 'Labourers Union', at the time,...and they were most helpful in getting me,....10.000 dollars for pain-and-suffering at the time,.................................. but lo,....little did we
know,...that we had already been exposed to some of the deadliest chemicals known to man,...which I kept a careful record of todate,...and as you might observe today,...we did a pretty good job,...for humble peons,....(tho all fit and strong with youth, at the time),....

It was not until a few weeks afterwards and when I was at home,..our use to the Parks Board having long since ceased,....that 1 had my first bad turn,..a stricture,..where I was partially paralised,...but it wore off,....and thought little of it,....then it returned periodically,... Along with it, this infernal itching of skin and electric shocks thru my lower legs,... But no return of frightful head aches we had experienced, after 10 am daily and return to worksite,...Te Anau Downs Bay,....(where loopies kick off from, to commence the Milford-tram,....) Chemical Exp 10000853086.

After pestering my Doctor,...PG Snow of Tapanui,...(Bluemountains-Southern Otago),...he called in Prof' Aldrid,...the circuit specialist,...who took note of the lump starting on my spine,...and posted me thru to Dunedin Base Hospital to have the latest Myelogramme scan xray done,...it was here,...that I first met the deadly,...Mylodile-dye,...(the oil based 'radio-active-dye,' which supposedly, enhances images,...),.but it was no trouble,...as I fainted, as soon as the needle entered my spine,...and they got 'good-pictures' evidently,..but told me,.... I had loads of chemicals in my system,...(my retort was sharp,..."I ain't no dopey friend, nor do I drink"!, but they held firm,...that I had previously been exposed to chennicals,..."Hogwash"! was my final parting Horay! Melogramme No. 100.3005.8957,

Tho I was not like my father,...serving the N.Z. Gov't in any sort of uniform,......... I felt a bit put

upon,....but was quite prepared to trust myself, into the hands of this new,...ACC,.. which Norm Kirk  swore by,.... Stating for public media,... "Workers will get paid for their injuries, suffered on the job-site,....", but lo,... after waiting for nearly forty years now,...there had been no Hearing,...or any signs of "COMPENSATIONS' forthcoming, instead all I get is lies and denials,....the lump on my lower left spine, just keeps getting bigger and bigger,.... And altho I have confronted Labour Dept' Dr,...they will not recognise my deformity,....but change the subject,.. or try to distract the discourse away from my...rather obvious Boob,....!

Now what has stopped my body from the usual recovery process,...would it be,...that bloody myelogramme,..along with the radio active crap they shoved into me,..." I'll let ye be the judge comrades,...."!

Mr Shaun-Swaine Hetherington 4 Alexander Street

Whangarei 0110

Dear Mr Hetherington

- Thank you for coming into the office last Friday 26th June, together with your friend Mr John Huntley, who tabled a further NODS relating to himself.

-Between The twO-Of Yciii thdre vva-s a kle range of Topics -a-nd youaufipfi-ea-an-eit-eniVe - history in relation to your issues with your back injury and your historical investigations with the use of Myodil dye.

You left me an envelope (marked "Affidavit") with further information relating to the problems of Myodil dye. I have read the material.

You will recall in our hour long meeting that you were primarily concerned about your back injury and the effects of the Myodil dye. I had difficulty ascertaining the specifics of your case i.e. which past or current medical symptoms most concerned you and which chemical or agent was of most concern to you.

I recall from your statements that you considered that all government(departments were

conspiring to brush your allegations under the carpet. It was your view that all employees of government departments take the "oath of allegiance" and therefore the government was centrally controlling things for the ACC and the Department of Labour (now WorkSafe).

You stated that you had variously written to the I.L.O. and W.H.O. but had not received replies. You stated that you were going to write to the United Nations but did not do so because now that Helen Clark is there, she would tow the NZ government line.

From our meeting and the further supplied information, I conclude that your primary concern is with the treatment injury suffered from the use of the radiopaque dye Myodil,

which was used in re              ears. Y• '• • u - • is - 1,t ou have been paid $10,000 by

ACC •          e reatment injury. If you feel that your circumstances have not been fu y
ecognised then I would advise you to seek a review with ACC.

0

The ol-5:j`Rrive of the NODS (Notifiable Occupational Disease System) is to identify workplaces that have damaged people's health, so that the workplace can be investigated and remedial action taken to prevent any further harm.

Your information has, in effect, taken a "shotgun approach" and listed a number of herbicides to which you have been exposed in your employment with the Department of Conservation in Te Anau, in the late 1970's.

To provide some focus to your issues, I would recommend that you visit your General Practitioner and discuss past and/or present symptoms you attribute to which specific

chemicals, to which you have been exposed. It would be helpful if you, or your GP, could complete a new NODS form in this regard.

MYODIL-DYE THE OS/L BASED RADIO ACTIVE DYE THEY IMPOSED ON US — 1977-1987 IN N.Z.
MY MYODIL-DYE MYELOGRAMME EXPERIENCE'

Victim -:     Shaun Hetherington. ACC. 81/329509. Chem exp° 10000853086.

"Mylodil- dye No. 100 3005 8957

My Mylodil-experience, which was recommended I have, by Dr's P.G. SNOW OF Tapanui, Blue Mountains, South Otago,..and Prof. Aldrid,...circuit-specialist who I visited at the Dr's rooms,... (I think Oct. 1980 ),...but the day I went to have the scan,....was 10/11/1980, at Base-hospital, Dunedin, Otago, which was approximately a year after I had my series of accidents with,...FNPB. Fjordland National Parks Board,..of Te Anau Downs, where I was rolling a hundred year old Willow log, into a supervised fire source,..at the Henry Creek,... not far from lodge grounds.

On the day I was exposed to that particular scan process,...I was lead to be seated on a peculiar shaped wooden table,...which was concave in shape,..and had brass-balls at either end,...was seated on that table, facing a white coated female,....who held my elbows,..exposing m y spine to the white coated male behind me,....who was holding a clear plastic hose,...which lead up to a clear plastic like water-bottle,....but on the end which entered my spin.e,...there was a chrome tube cut at an acute angle,...which was to provide fluid into into my back,.I presumed,.. As soon as the needle like thing entered my spine,..I passed out,.....only regaining consciousness when they were wrapping up their process,.... I was horrified and thought I had pissed my diapers,...but the nurse like lady reassured me,..."It's only sweat,....but we got good shots, don't worry, it affects people that way"!

I was taken back to ward in a wheelchair,...already in much discomfort because of my back injury,... but later,.. wanting to go to the toilet,... I got up to find the corridor I was trying to walk, had no walls,...but everything was cylindrical,....had to hold my arm out to manage the walk,...but made it

both ways without aid, the peculiar feelings dissipated in a few days,...and giddy no more,...itchy

skin continued unabated     

During my outdoor sportsman's life, I have experienced many busted up conditions ,...but my body has always `healed-itself!...but not on that particular occasion,....despite my many dietary, careful calculations,...and organic-lifestyle,... & finite physico,..which I had to manage myself, because ACC refused to fund official-practitioners,...declaring themselves 'free' of me, with a one off payment.of $10,000 and niggardly pension plan,..which disqualified me from preparing for a life,..or retirements,...I have been crippled now for nie on FORTY years,....about to celebrate my "Ruby-Jubilee!", married to ACC and without any consumated relations since. We should never have given up the right to sue our employers,....I'm left to await my death in miserable circumstances,...thank you Internal affair.N.Z.,...as you were my employers, ta mate !!!

Now we can't even sue Glaxo UK....because they're protected by,...PRIMARY INDUSTRIES Cartel,....who made the oil based radio-active dye...!
