From: Phillip Sweeney


Dear Australian Prudential Regulation Authority,

Anthony Charles Quinn is a former employee of Carlton and United Breweries Limited which in 1996 was a subsidiary company of Fosters Brewing Group Limited.

The purported corporate trustee of the staff superannuation fund was FBG Superannuation Limited.

The Chairman of this corporate trustee was Geoffrey Cohen, who was also at the Chairman of HIH Insurance until the time of its collapse in 2001

In 1996 Mr Quinn was elected one of three member-elected trustee directors of the corporate trustee.

However a few days before Mr Quinn was due to attend his first trustee board meeting, Mr Cohen arranged for Mr Quinn's contract of employment to be terminated with one day's notice {when the CUB staff policy required 10 weeks notice} and which took effect the day before the next scheduled board meeting.

Mr Quinn then took proceedings in the Supreme Court of Victoria pursuant to Section 68 of the Superannuation Industry (Supervision) Act 1993 - 'Victimisation of Trustees".

APRA sent one or more observers to these hearings as listed below.

The documents I seek are copies of file notes or reports prepared by these APRA observers of the proceedings that they attended involving Mr Quinn.

Yours faithfully,

Phillip Sweeney
