Application made for review of Registrar decision

The Registrar of Indigenous Corporations, Mr Anthony Beven, has noted a decision of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal last Friday to reject an application for interlocutory orders in relation to the Dunghutti Elders Council Aboriginal Corporation.

A number of members of the corporation lodged an application with the tribunal to review decisions made by the Registrar to register documents appointing directors of the corporation. The tribunal declined to make orders to stay the decisions of the Registrar. The final application will be heard at a later date.

A stay would have postponed the operation of the Registrar’s decisions until the application was heard.

The Dunghutti Elders Council Aboriginal Corporation is located in Kempsey NSW. It was established to hold native title compensation for the Dunghutti people.
