The Federal Court has ordered that Mr Michael Christodoulou King be bankrupted following ASIC's presentation of a creditor's petition regarding his failure to pay a pecuniary penalty order of $300,000. Justice Kylie Downes found the Court could make orders to declare Mr King bankrupt based on the unpaid pecuniary penalty, even though such debt is not one provable in bankruptcy. Her Honour decided to bankrupt Mr King on the basis that: he owes provable debts exceeding $177 million and there was no evidence to suggest he can pay them (and is therefore insolvent); there is a strong public interest in protecting the public and giving fair notice in dealing with an insolvent person; and there was nothing inappropriate in ASIC seeking bankruptcy against an insolvent debtor, or about the fact that it had done so without having its costs orders assessed. (ASIC previously took enforcement action against Mr King, with the Queensland Supreme Court finding in May 2016 that he, together with four other individuals, committed 217 breaches of the Corporations Act regarding the misappropriation of funds from the Premium Income Fund.)


reports in the SMH that on the first day of liquidators' examinations into MFS, now Octaviar, David John Kennedy (employed as chief operating officer) described uncontrolled spending of MFS executives, ''Mickey Mouse'' approval processes and a hostile culture in which the company's chairman, former Liberal leader Andrew Peacock, screamed at staff - Mr Kennedy told the NSW Supreme Court he started work for MFS in May 2007, as chief operating officer - a role that no one at MFS ever lasted long in - he said real decisions were made at board level, and that Michael King was ''the decision-maker'' - an internal investment approval committee could reject a proposal, only to have Mr King override the decision and approve it anyway
