The Supreme Court of NSW has today delivered orders for the administrator appointed by Greyhound Racing NSW (GRNSW) to have full access to computers and financial records of the Dapto Agricultural and Horticultural Society Ltd.
In his orders, His Honour Justice Robb also instructed the administrator to take over all accounts of the Society, effective immediately.
The computers and financial records have been missing from the Society’s offices since an administrator, Mr Grant Carroll, was appointed by GRNSW on November 6.
As part of his orders Justice Robb said:
“The Directors and the CEO provide the Administrator as soon as reasonably possible the following so far as they are in their possession, custody or control, of all books and records of the Society, including electronically stored data, all usernames, passwords, access codes, devices and other things necessary to enable the Administrator to have access to the electronically stored records of the Society (whether stored on-site or off-site), the security cameras and other security systems of the Society, and any social media accounts of the Society associated with greyhound racing, and the computers of the Society.”
He also ordered that “the Administrator facilitate the Directors and the CEO having unfettered electronic access to all accounts of the Society for the purpose of perusing all transactions effected by the Administrator through those accounts, but without the Directors and the CEO having any authority to implement transactions on behalf of the Society.”
In his orders Justice Robb also directed the Directors and the CEO by themselves their servants and agents be restrained from interfering with the conduct by the Administrator of the greyhound activities of the Society pursuant to his appointment as administrator of the Society by Greyhound Racing, and that the Administrator have control of all funds, income and expenditure of the Society for the purpose of the conduct of greyhound racing.
