The AWU Scandal - Slater and Gordon help Wilson/Blewitt out with a mortgage
Ralph Blewitt tells his story about the Gillard Power of Attorney

The AWU Scandal - Ralph Blewitt's statement

Advisers acting for Ralph Blewitt have forwarded me this statement on behalf of Ralph Blewitt and asked that I publish it.

"Ralph Blewitt has confirmed that he did not sign the Power of Attorney in front of  Julia Gillard. He recalls signing it in Western Australia after it was produced by Bruce Wilson.   Julia Gillard was not present and did not see Ralph Blewitt sign the document."

I would have to add that Ralph Blewitt's recollection of events is supported by the circumstantial evidence in the conveyancing file.
