A new witness - former WA Corporate Affairs official Ralph Mineif and the Minister's directive to incorporate
I met with Ray Neal, the former WA Corporate Affairs Commissioner in January in Perth. Ray Neal gave me the name of an official who worked with him at the time of the AWU WRA incorporation - Ralph Mineif.
Well after a month of searching and with a little help from our friends I met with Ralph Mineif today.
I've recorded a few interviews with him, he's as sharp as a tack, now retired on a large block to the west of Sydney. He is ready, willing and able to appear before the Royal Commission - he's also emphatic that the AWU WRA would never have been incorporated without a direction from a Minister of the Crown. A Labor Party Minister.
