This is to let you know that there is a hearing in the new Brisbane Supreme Court tomorrow (Wednesday, 12 Sept 2012) at 10 am about the Public Trustee’s handling of financial affairs at AHIMSA house. Importantly it is about saving an elderly person’s family home that the public trustee wants to give to an accountant under a deed of arrangement.
The Supreme Court is to hear an application by the Public Trustee that poses the question:
“Should (the Public Trustee) institute further proceedings as against Brian Laver and/or Will Marcus and/or Challenger Bank in relation their dealings with ….?” (it is an offence to publish the name of the person in this application).
The application seeks to absolve the Public Trustee from any blame associated with its administration of the elderly person.
During its administration the Public Trustee sent a letter to a doctor posing the following question:
”Please advise whether xxxx’s life expectancy is other than normal for a person of his age.”
The application also includes this picture as an exhibit in an attempt to discredit people who attempted to defend AHIMSA house.
It is an open court and you are welcome to attend. Friends of AHIMSA house were only given notice of this hearing last Friday. We wish to raise matters of fraud and unconscionable behavior by the bank but it is unlikely that the judge will permit us to be heard or will find some way of sweeping this under the carpet. There was an offer to purchase AHIMSA house made by the Indigenous Land Corporation which was never followed up by the Public Trustee.
This case is one of many that the Public Trustee has mismanaged.
I know that the hearing clashes with the union demonstration against the job cuts but it is important nonetheless.
The New Supreme Court is on the corner of George and Herschel streets. Please let others know.
