$125k of compulsory student fees taken

johnboy 7 December 2012 4

The ANU’s Woroni has detailed just how much loot a former ANU student has drained out of student association funds.

The Canberra Times has gone further and apparently the former student’s wealthy family is talking about paying back the bare minimum to make this all go away.

And the higher ups on campus are taking an intriguing route:

ANUSA did not return calls on Thursday, but the university’s deputy vice-chancellor, Marnie Hughes-Warrington, told The Canberra Times the student association had agreed, in the wake of the revelations, to several changes to the accountability regime around student funds.

Professor Hughes-Warrington said the student association agreed to accept anti-fraud and conflict-of-interest training for all of its office-holders, as well as other improved accountability measures.

Which some could take to mean “for god’s don’t get caught”.

Happily the ANUSA is insured against this kind of thing. So future generations of students can pay the money back through increased premiums.

Are these the same people who campaigned against voluntary student unionism?

And good to know the money was stolen by some rich parasite (probably an Arts/Law wanker).

Sooooooo are we expecting fraud or theft charges against the student ?

Either the Filth don’t have enough evidence or the rich family lawyer has been bought in ?

Phew, so the insurance will cover it,so it doesn’t really matter.

University Students, the only group of people who constantly have an overinflated opinion of their own sefl importance. I go to university therefore I understand all the worlds woes and how to fix them.

I feel better now.
