Paul Matters on his community radio program Struggle Street, Saturday 27th April 2013 - comments on the Minister for Financial Services Bill Shorten's ratty response to the Parliamentary Joint Committee's report released one year earlier. The PJC on Corporations and Financial Services investigated the collapse of Trio Capital and released their report May 16th 2012. The PJC report was in response to the biggest superannuation fraud in Australia’s history, known as the Trio Capital crime.

Mr Matters in a recent press release said: “It has taken three and a half years after ASIC stepped in to shut down Astarra for the Minister to direct that there be a co-ordinated pursuit of the criminals by the relevant Australian investigative authorities.

At the moment in this country we have a government that has failed to grasp that the massive losses to hard working Australians were the result of a sophisticated crime that was conceived, planned and largely executed outside the Australian regulatory jurisdiction. We have a responsible Minister who fails to understand that this crime was committed in the globalised financial markets. “

Not only can our financial regulators not stop determined sophisticated financial criminals committing crime massive crime against hard working Australians but our regulatory authorities can’t catch them.” - Matters
