Finnin is found guilty

For those of you who have yet to catch up on the news, John Finnin was found guilty on Friday of 23 charges that relate to alleged child sex offences. He will be sentenced by a judge this Friday. Most Firepower shareholders don’t need reminding that Finnin was the CEO of the company and the man who promised in early 2007 that shareholders would be a given a full set of financial figures by September that year. He was the man wheeled out to defend the company in a series of meetings held in capital cities all over Australia. Many shareholders will have shaken hands with him, or exchanged emails with him, and felt reassured at the time that this former senior Australian diplomat – with a top secret security clearance from the Australian government – was the man who was going to end their misery. Well, a court alleges he had other things on his mind¬†around about then, as I first reported in August 2007. And there might be more revelations to come.
