Garry Morris, 56, pleaded guilty to three counts of disclosing official secrets by emailing a mate a rival bidders quote along with details of the official tender days before it was released to the public. The tender was to clean the air ducts of NT Government buildings in Darwin for a year. The court heard the Department of Construction and Infrastructure employee used his work email to send Andrew Stamkos of AMS Services and Maintenance the costings of rival company Enviroair on January 18, 2011. He then emailed details of the yet-to-be released tender. Enviroair was owned by Mr Stamkos son Jeremy. The pair had previously had a very public falling out when Mr Stamkos was made redundant from his sons business. When Enviroair did not win the contract they complained to the DCI now the Department of Infrastructure about the tender process. An internal investigation revealed Morris misconduct. He was suspended and marched from the office in front of shocked colleagues and later resigned. Morris was also summonsed to a hearing in front of the Commissioner for Public Interest Disclosures. Defence lawyer Ian Row bottam said Morris gained nothing and lost everything because of his stupid decision to help Mr Stamkos. Mr Rowbottam said Morris had turned into a recluse since losing his job. He had had several mini strokes, lost 60kg and was depressed. He tells me from going from a proud and loyal public servant with an unblemished record he is now a person that does not go out and stays at home, Mr Rowbottam said. He said Enviroair would not have won the contract anyway because it failed to provide all the required information in its bid. Magistrate Elisabeth Armitage accepted Morris had an unblemished record in his 38-year public service career before 2011. She gave Morris a six-month suspended sentence and an 18-month good behaviour bond. Above, Jeremy Kay and Georgina Nefiodovas are holidaying on Boracay, which was right in the path of super typhoon Haiyan which smashed into the Philippines yesterday Picture: AFP PHOTO/NOAA/HANDOUT Teen trapped in path of typhoon By DAVID WOOD THE mother of a Darwin teenager stuck on a Philippines island says her daughter was right in the path of one of the worlds biggest typhoons to ever hit land. Super typhoon Haiyan smashed into fishing communities on the central island of Samar, about 600km southeast of Manila, before dawn yesterday with maximum sustained winds of 315km/h. The strength of the wind made it one of the four most powerful typhoons ever recorded in the world, and the most powerful to have made landfall. Sea waves of up to 6m have been predicted. Jeff Masters, the director of meteorology at US-based Weather Underground Masters, said he expected the damage in Guiuan the fishing town of about 40,000 people that was the first to be hit after Haiyan swept in from the Pacific Ocean to be catastrophic. Darwins Lotty Nefiodovass daughter Georgina Nefiodovas, 18, is holidaying with her boyfriend Jeremy Kay, 20, on the island of Boracay in the central Philippines. They were due to leave the island on Thursday to go to Singapore but were told there was no room on boats. Mrs Nefiodovas said her daughter told her yesterday they had found out the island had a shelter but were going to instead stay on the top floor of their concrete hotel. She said at its narrowest the island was 600m wide and the hotel overlooked the beach on the east side so would take the brunt of the storm coming from the sea. Communication with Guiuan was cut off immediately after Haiyan hit, and the civil defence office said it was too early to give an assessment of the damage. But in Tacloban, a nearby city of more than 200,000 people, streets are flooded and some buildings have been torn down. Haiyan had maximum sustained winds yesterday morning of 315km/h and gusts of 379km/h.
