Gillard tells Royal Commission about the documents replaced by forgery

A confidential source sent me this in the very early days - not long after 2UE.

Union re-election funds are common but only challengers worry about secrecy. 

Wilson had been secretary for over a year and Bill Ludwig was in it with him.  

They were worried because the Association should never have been incorporated. If it was it should have been under Industrial Laws.  

Jeremy Stoljar used the words from the Associations Incorporation Act "a trade union is ineligible for incorporation".

The 7 second pause that follows is telling.

The AWU WRA Inc was refused incorporation.

Gillard appealed and argued the case - including submissions in writing from Thiess and the national head office of the AWU.

What Gillard did should be in this file.

That's why the forgery was produced.

But she's not the only one in it.

Former Corporate Affairs Commissioner Ray Neal on the Gillard forgery

Mr Neal can give evidence about his own signature - but what about his signature stamp?

He says he did not write the letter, would not be a party to it and could not legally have made the offer in it.

Ralph Mineif is the only other staffer who could have used Ray Neal's signature stamp.

Mr Mineif is even more emphatic than Mr Neal - he could not, would not and did not have anything to do with the letter.

But just in case - here are the signature on the letter and the signature stamp from the certificate:

It's a simple task to extract and compare them - and it's clear the stamp was not used on the forgery.

Ray Neal didn't write the letter.

Ralph Mineif didn't write the letter.

Ralph Blewitt didn't get the memo that Gillard used to load him up.

What more do authorities need?
