It has been well known for a long time that Bill Shorten’s crime gang led by Diana Asmar, David Asmar, Kimberley Kitching and Andrew Landeryou have been ripping off the HSU Victoria Number 1 Branch (known as the Health Workers Union). But now we have the financial report that shows the $millions they have been stealing and rorting from some of the lowest paid workers in the country.
The financial report is on thier website for the 2013/14 year but has only been dated on the 2 February 2015 for some reason. (Click here to read the report)
I am not an accountant but even I can see the evidence of the scams they were running. For example wages in the 2013 financial year were $1,820,807 and blew out to $3,451,989 in the 2014 financial year. This is a massive increase of $1,631,182 and consistent with the fact that we knew that Asmar and crew were employing Labor Party and Union cronies to work at the union. In practice they did very little work except to collect their pay. A prime example would be Kitching who was employed as General Manager on a package of about $120,000 yet did very little if anything. She has since left I understand trying to avoid the criminal charges that were recommended against her by the Royal Commission.
I have been told in the last few months up to 13 staff have been sacked as the Branch is rapidly running out of money and has very few assets left to sell to keep them going.
On paper it says they made a $735,745 profit for the 2014 year but in fact they really made a loss when the sale of their building is taken into account. The building was sold, without the approval of members, for a reported profit of $2,238,012 but if Andrew Landeryou was involved it is highly likely that some profit was skimmed off the top.
Take the $2,238,012 profit from the sale of the building out of the 2014 finances and the reported $735,745 profit becomes a $1,502,267 loss. This financial year they have no building to sell so that is why they have been sacking staff to try and avoid bankruptcy. They have been selling assets to fleece the union and its members.
I have only dealt with a few issues from the accounts but the whole financial report needs to be forensically audited by fraud experts. Other expenses like legal went from $57,000 to $256,000, printing went from $55,000 to $205,000 and Catering and Entertainment went from $9,988 to $63,275. My guess is that the real fraud and theft is easily at least 3 to 4 $million.
Trade Union Royal Commission
At this stage the RC does not plan public hearings until April 2015 and they have already investigated the HSU but should call them back for further investigation and questioning. How can such a massive fraud happen right under the noses of the Royal Commission?
Criminals on the run
A number of people who have had their snouts in the trough at the HSU Vic #1 Branch were recommended for criminal charges by the Trade Union Royal Commission. Some have left and some are still there. The Fair Work Commission has also been chasing people for dodgy conduct under the leadership of Diana Asmar and handed down an interim judgement a few weeks ago. (Click here to read the judgement) Further hearings by the FWC are scheduled and some people might ultimately face charges stemming from the Royal Commission.
The fraud that has been going on at the HSU Victoria Number #1 Branch has been common knowledge for a long time yet nothing has ever happened to stop it. I have written about it numerous times with one recent post titled: “Dumb and Dumber of the Australian Labor Party. Kimberley Kitching & Andrew Landeryou” (Click here to read) and another titled “Bill Shorten’s Crime Gang recommended for criminal charges by Barrister assisting Royal Commission” (Click here to read) in November last year.
The Head Office at the HSU have turned a blind eye as they know it is Bill Shorten’s crew and they are untouchable in the Labor Party and Union movement.
Bill Shorten wants to be Prime Minister and run the country
A lot of people complain about the current Prime Minister Tony Abbott or the previous PM’s Kevin Rudd and/or Julia Gillard etc. But if Shorten ever gets elected as Prime Minister he will set the crossbar to a record low. People need to know we will not just be getting Bill Shorten but his whole crime network from the Union/Labor Party movement. And it will be the perfect storm.
