Dear Superannuation Complaints Tribunal,

I am seeking documents pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act 1982.

"Australia's Worst White-Collar Crime - How the Acting Chairperson of the Superannuation Complaints Tribunal can prove the Fraud".

The search period is from 23 December 2014 inclusive.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney

Just a heads up, The authority can technically refuse access to documents which were or received after the date you made your request.

So, if you make a request on the 23rd, and the document isn't created or in the department's possession until the 29th, then technically the request can be refused. I hope the APRA won't do this however.

Ben

Thank you for the feedback.

Evidence of a major superannuation fraud has been provided to the Tribunal. I have also provided evidence to Senator the Hon Arthur Sinodinos when he was the Minister responsible for superannuation only to later find the the evidence could not be located. It is for this reason that I am using the FOI Act to ensure that the evidence that I have provided has in fact been received and properly filed by the Tribunaland not "lost".

In this matter the Acting Tribunal Chairperson is under a statutory duty to provide copies of this evidence to APRA, ASIC or both.

By confirming the receipt of the evidence, the Acting Tribunal Chairperson then does not have an excuse for not complying with her duties pursuant to Section 64 of the Superannuation (Resolution of Complaints) Act 1993

I would recommend this approach to anyone who sends evidence of wrongdoing to an agency or minister, so that it does not go "missing" or is simply placed into the "too hard basket" and forgotten.

Regards

Phillip Sweeney
