Firepower boss Tim Johnston was expected to spend his first night behind bars last night after a warrant was issued for his arrest, reports Perth’s Sunday Times. Johnston was questioned in Brisbane yesterday, via videolink to a Federal Court hearing in Perth, on his failure to attend a public examination of his failed company last Thursday. Johnston had cited health and safety concerns for his inability to attend the liquidators’ hearing in Perth, supplying a doctor’s affidavit to support his claim that he was too ill to fly. Lawyers for the liquidators of Firepower immediately applied for a warrant for his arrest, and that hearing was adjourned to Wednesday. Sorry for the cut-and-paste job but I am still overseas. But you can read on here.
UPDATE: I see Johnston has escaped being taken into custody despite a warrant being issued for his arrest.
