Apology from Mr Hackett of ASIC

Phillip Sweeney made this Freedom of Information request to Australian Securities and Investments Commission

The request was refused by Australian Securities and Investments Commission.

From: Phillip Sweeney

Delivered

Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

In a letter dated 10 November 2009 (ASIC Ref 36866/09) Mr Greg Hackett an ASIC officer made the following representation:

"CCSL has advised ASIC that it initiated a search of its records and archives of the previous trustee and has uncovered a copy of an executed Trust Deed dated 26 August 1986 which contains the rules of the Elders IXL Superannuation Fund dated 19 August 1985"

The purported Trustee CCSL has now undergone a "Phoenixing" transformation so that it cannot have its RSE licence revoked by APRA.

CCSL criminally concealed the genuine deeds of the trust that provide a survivorship pension for widows. Copies of these deeds can now be found here:

http://superfraud.org/?page_id=3321

http://superfraud.org/?page_id=3461

These deeds were obtained with the assistance of the Deputy Premier and Attorney General of South Australia, the Hon John Rau MP and his Department.

The purported "Trust Deed" dated 26 August 1986 that Mr Hackett misrepresented as the "Trust Deed" was executed by Ken Jarrett who served a term of imprisonment for dishonest conduct after three major investigations by the former National Crime Authority. The Australian Crime Commission replaced the National Crime Authority.

A copy of the "Jarrett Deed" can be downloaded as Item 14-28 from the website of the Australian Crime Commission here:

https://www.crimecommission.gov.au/publi...

The genuine Trust Deed is dated 23 December 1913 and was drafted by Sir John Downer who co-drafted the Australian Constitution.

CCSL also failed to lodge a copy of the genuine 1913 Trust Deed with APRA as part of the Fund Registration process pursuant to the Superannuation Safety Amendment Act 2004, but instead misrepresented the "Jarrett Deed" as the genuine founding Trust Deed.

The document or documents I seek is a copy of any apology that Mr Hackett as sent to the Widows who have not received their survivorship pensions, due to his misrepresentation of the "Jarrett Deed" being the genuine Trust Deed of one one Australia's oldest pension funds.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney

There are three mistakes with this application. The first mistake is by the agency. The agency had an obligation to send to the applicant an acknowledgement of the request of 6 November 2015. The acknowledgement should have been sent by 20 November 2015. This is required by s 15(5)(a) of the Act. The second mistake or failure was also by the agency. It is usually expected to notify the applicant of a decision within 30 days of the application. Because the 30th day was a Sunday, the department was expected to notify the applicant of a decision by Monday 7 December 2015.

The third mistake is from the applicant to expect that the department must now make a new decision. My reason to say "new decision" is because the effect of the law is to say that a decision has now been make by the department. It was a decision to refuse the request. A person can read the explanation in my annotation about "Hottest 100 voting dataset" (https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/h... ).

A last comment is that the applicant in this case is very knowledgable of the FOI law and also knowledgable of the number of applications that the agency receives and how little staff it has to deal with his FOI requests (http://www.canberratimes.com.au/national... ) and the requests from the othe applicants Julie Simpson (http://www.righttoknow.org.au/user/julie... ) and John Daniels (http://www.righttoknow.org.au/user/julie... ).

Dear Locutus Sum

Thank you for the publicity about the Canberra Times article. I love the James Bond connection.

ASIC attempted to have a life-time ban imposed on me to prevent me from obtaining evidence as to how ASIC is covering up Australia's Largest Superannuation Fraud perpetrated by well-know white collar criminals where widows were specifically targeted.

ASIC failed in this attempt and I am gathering more evidence to confirm that ASIC is a party to a conspiracy to defraud widows out of their surivorship pensions.

Dear Australian Securities and Investments Commission,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Australian Securities and Investments Commission's handling of my FOI request 'Apology from Mr Hackett of ASIC'.

I believe it is a matter of Public Interest to ensure that when an officer of ASIC is deceived by white-collar criminals and then misrepresents a document that bears the signature of another well known white-collar criminal as the "Trust Deed" of a superannuation fund in a compulsory superannuation system, then the widows who have had their pensions stolen by these white-collar criminals are deserving of at least an apology and an explanation as to why the ASIC officer continues to provide protection to these white-collar criminals and makes no attempt to come to the aid of the widows who have been left destitute, while the white-collar criminals live the lifestyles of the rich and famous.

I am therefore seeking confirmation that Mr Hackett has acted in such a manner.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.righttoknow.org.au/request/a...

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
