Dear Superannuation Complaints Tribunal,

On the 6 May 2008 Fiona Power issued a Notice Under Section 22(4) to Margaret O'Halloran, Fund Secretary and to myself.

Subsection 14(6) of the SRC Act provides:

(6) The Tribunal cannot deal with a complaint under this section that relates to the management of a fund as a whole.

I had alleged that I suspected that invalid changes {amendments} had been made to the original Trust Deed as confirmed by a file note dated 7 February 2008, which if true would relate "to the management of a fund as a whole".

The SCT had previously issued Ms O'Halloran with a Notice under Section 17 to produce a copy of the "Trust Deed" and relevant amendments executed up until mid-October 2006 when a release event occurred.

When I lodged my complaint with the SCT in late 2007 the purported trustee had not provided me with copies of the original "Trust Deed" nor copies of any amending Deeds. Therefore I could not substantiate my allegation of suspected invalid amending Deeds.

With the assistance of the Attorney-General's Department of South Australia, I now have possession of copies of the genuine Deeds.

In a recent FOI Request I sought:

" a copy of the documents represented as the "Trust Deed" by Ms O'Halloran and any other documents provided to the SCT in response to the Notice under Section 17 the complaint I lodged with the SCT in late 2007"

I moved house two years ago and after searching through my garage I located a box with some of these documents provided by the SCT after a request 11 years ago dated 2 October 2009. There were some 250 pages.

One document with a handwritten number "208" which was a copy of a note from Phil McGrath to Paula Britton [File Ref: 07-02222] Dated 5 February 2008.

Title: Documents for Trust Deed Library

Under Type of Document was "Amending Deed (replacing the Rules relating to the Fund in their entirety)". Dated 03/04/2006.

However, a copy of this "Amending Deed" was not included in the 250 pages of documents provided by the SCT.

This would be an easy mistake to make with so many documents

I do not need a copy of the 250 pages that I have in my possession.

I am now seeking a copy of the document described as an "Amending Deed" that was added to the "Trust Deed Library".

An "Amending Deed" clearly cannot be the original Trust Deed that established the superannuation fund, scheme or trust.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
