Since becoming a Qld Senator last year, I have assigned a staffer to listen to the stories of people who have been victims of questionable lending practices of Banks. 

I wanted to assist these people by helping them find ways to receive justice. At the same time, I have been trying to get the Banking Royal Commission extended, to deal with all the problems in the banking system.

I have been motivated by the experiences of several close friends who have been victimised by banks and who have unjustly lost their assets and their livelihood.

The Government has resisted calls to extend the Royal commission, but less than 30 cases (from the 10,000 submissions to the RC) have been looked at.

This means that so far, only the tip of the iceberg has been exposed.

During my investigation into this subject, I have been staggered by the depth of deceit and manipulation that I have heard described by Bank victims involving the clever and deceptive actions of banks, lawyers, receivers, liquidators and other bank agents.

The public has been kept completely in the dark by a media which is indifferent at best.
My staff have looked at more than 80 cases in detail. 

Many of these unfortunate people had successful businesses, farms, pubs, and houses worth millions of dollars. 

Within a short time, their assets were sold, and they were bankrupted. The bankruptcies appear to have been a tactic to make sure they did not have any means to fight back. 

Some victims have suicided, but many, many more have been so depressed and distraught they cannot even bear to hope for justice. 

My staff know of several who could not even write a submission to the Royal commission due to the pain of remembering the details.

There are three points I want to make, for Australians to consider:

1) It is vital we elect people to parliament who will not be corrupted by party politics or personal payoffs. Unfortunately, few will buck the system and stand on the side of justice. Instead, they allow themselves to be controlled by their party. I don`t believe the dominating party system was the intention of our nation’s founding fathers, and …….it is destroying our democracy and preventing justice from being done.

2) If you are a bank victim, I suggest you join in with the hundreds of others who are getting mobilised to find ways to get justice. Please contact my office to learn how to get in touch with the appropriate people. (senator.anning@aph.gov.au)

3) Many Bank victims (and one of my staff) have been attending Bank AGMs to inform shareholders and the banks boards about the human consequences of bank actions. These actions have financially and emotionally destroyed some customers. I encourage people to use BANK AGMs as ways to shine a light on the corrupt behaviour of banks (and their agents), so they will be pressured from inside as well as from outside their organisations.

I wish all Australians well and I encourage them to say hello whenever I visit their area.

Thanks Rin & Turbine. Good collection of factually correct information. Awaiting the usual naysayers.

The Rothschild correct name is Bauer, the name Rothschild comes from a “red shield” that hung over the doorway of their pawn shop were the scum started business.

This round of corruption can be laid squarely at the feet of that idiot Woodrow Wilson when he allowed the Federal Reserve in the USA to start business. Everything has gone downhill from there.

It’s about time the banks were brought to book, they have been perpetrating a monstrous fraud on the population of the western world since the beginning of the last century. Scum.

If it is good enough for Qantas to have to disclose its foreign shareholders whether they are represented by nominees or not, then it should be good enough for the same rules to be applied to Banks. Are not our banks just as important organisations as Qantas.?

Can’t help thinking that when it comes to dealing with banks, many of these so-called hard-done-by customers have been their own worst enemy. It’s pretty simple really – don’t worry about how or what the bank will lend you – do your home-work and never ask for more than you can honestly repay!

Senator, banks have certainly been guilty of some poor practices at the margins but the Royal Witch Hunt has cost many hundreds of thousands of shareholders billions of dollars. Most of the issues exposed in the Commission were historical and had been rectified while others were particular to a small group who had their chance to whine on the public stage. Had the regulators done a dur diligence inquiry on financial services organisations which is their charter these matters would have been rectified before much harm was done. The whingers you and your staff have listened to represent a very… Read more »

A good article Senator, exposing the hidden suffering. The unfortunate result of a successful move against the Banks will result in many retirees losing much of their retirement funds invested in shares. Before those people who support and practice the politics of envoy start whooping with joy, let us remember the impact on the treasury by forcing many self funding retirees onto Welfare. It just proves that we all loose by the dishonesty of others. The higher in the hierarchy the dishonesty, the greater the number of people hurt.

Trump mentioned yesterday the wall is important to stop human trafficking. He did mention children. He said it’s been going on for decades. Exposure coming perhaps, I hope so. Speech tonight at 9pm NewYork time. That’s in 3 hours.

Actually I support her aim to get here. She might set an example for others to follow. She has denounced Islam, discarded the habib and cut her hair. Sounds like the type we need. Obviously not a rag head peasant like the majority of those we import.

The fact that FAKE NEWS exists has been convincingly reconfirmed to all of Australia.
Fraser Anning is a shining light in the sewer that exists within Australian Politics at the moment.
The thinking folk are now seeing through the litany of lies and propaganda on these matters and change will come.

Fraser Anning is the only righteous man standing. Those hurt by his position need serious help. They’re the ones ruining this great country.
