Our ques­tions to Gro­con - and their re­sponses

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

● Why haven’t these busi­nesses been paid for their work?

● When will they be paid?

● Will Gro­con rule out clos­ing down and/or putting into liq­ui­da­tion its Queens­land com­pany?

● Has any­one in the gov­ern­ment/po­lice in­formed Gro­con of any threat­en­ing emails?

● What else would you like to say about this is­sue?

Re­sponse from pub­lic re­la­tions agency:

“These is­sues were cov­ered in de­tail in Ryan Keen’s ar­ti­cle that ap­peared in the Bul­letin on Satur­day, with di­rect quotes from Gro­con Chair­man Daniel Grollo. Gro­con has noth­ing to add at this stage, be­cause noth­ing has changed. The busi­ness is work­ing to pay sub­con­trac­tors as soon as pos­si­ble.”

Fur­ther ques­tions:

● Ryan’s ar­ti­cle did not men­tion the threat of vi­o­lence to (name withheld) – is there no re­sponse to that?

● Mr Grollo did not rule out clos­ing down or liq­ui­dat­ing Gro­con Qld in Ryan’s ar­ti­cle – will he do that to­day?

● “As soon as pos­si­ble” is not a time frame. Does Gro­con an­tic­i­pate pay­ing peo­ple be­fore the end of this week/ month/year?

Re­sponse:

“Gro­con has no com­ment ex­cept to say it has no plans close down or liq­ui­date Gro­con Qld.”
