We call on people who support community organisation to help defend AHIMSA house at 26 Horan Street West End from unconscionable sale by Challenger Bank, now owned by National Australia bank by signing the petition below.
Following attendance at the auction of AHIMSA house which was passed in, two letters have been sent to the Premier with a simple request about a shocking embezzlement by ‘friends’ of the owner in cohort with the bank. The bank has decided to sell AHIMSA house to cash in on a loan that should never have been made. Who has run off with the loan monies?
Anna Bligh or one of her officers should intervene in the dispute caused by the this has been caused by the failure of Queensland Public Trustee (PT) to act to protect the interests of its client.
The PT’s client is the owner of AHIMSA house.
This inaction has lasted for over 3 years, far too long, in matters of this type where a timely response is needed.
Our request is simple — I wish to speak with the public trustee and his senior counsel to seek an injunction to prevent the sale of AHIMSA and for the property to be returned to its rightful owner.
The Premier’s office has received both my requests via emails dated 17 November & 23 November 2011.
The current response time to a query is 4-6 weeks.
The delay relates in part to freedom-of-information laws.
Everyone is accountable under these laws so everything is vetted by lawyers to make sure the Premier’s inaction does not place government at risk. The Premier has handed control and power to technocrats. The Public Trustee is one. In the days of Bjelke-Petersen this was less evident, he would intervene himself – but often the results are the same – inaction on matters that affect people’s daily lives.
For example, gone are the days when the Premier’s chief of staff would call you up personally. See also You Cannot Trust the Public Trustee
You can help by signing the petition below to the parliament.
