HIH Inquiry - Absurd expenditure
(I don't know if this is trus, but it is very amusing)
This is a transcript from the HIH hearing going on at present ...
HIH Royal Commission. Day 131. Wayne Martin QC examining Raymond Reginald Williams.
Martin: "Could you tell us please if, on your frequent first-class
trips to London, you booked the seat next to you for your briefcase ?"
Williams: "I don't recall specifically. But that may have been the
case, on some occasions. "
Martin: "That your briefcase was also travelling first class?"
Williams: "That may have been the case."
Martin: "Did you express the view to Qantas that this briefcase should be eligible for frequent flier points ?"
Williams: "I can't recall that."
Martin: "And were you subsequently informed that said briefcase would not be eligible for such points on the grounds that it was not, in fact, a person ?"
Williams: "That may have been the airline's position on that issue."
Martin: "Was that briefcase, from that point on, booked under the name of Casey Williams ?"
Williams: "Casey Reginald Williams, AM."
