It is claimed that investigations have been initiated, but no Authority has taken any action until today.
One shareholder claimed that
a few minutes after the EGM vote result was announced in Australia, a group of people raided the Singapore office. They physically threw out the staff, changed the locks and took ownership of all documents. They knew the outcome of the vote before it happened and were standing ready at the door as they had forged the proxy forms.
A police report was filed by the former CEO on that for trespassing and theft, However, no Singapore Authority has taken action.
