In­ter­pol to help track Mensink

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS - ME­LANIE PETRINEC

AU­THOR­I­TIES are urg­ing any­one with in­for­ma­tion on the where­abouts of fugi­tive ex-Queens­land Nickel di­rec­tor Clive Mensink to come for­ward.

The Townsville Bul­letin re­vealed yes­ter­day that In­ter­pol had joined the search for Mr Mensink af­ter be­ing con­tacted by Aus­tralian Fed­eral Po­lice about two war­rants for his ar­rest.

The war­rants were is­sued in March when Mr Mensink failed to turn up to Fed­eral Court pub­lic ex­am­i­na­tion hear­ings into the col­lapse of Queens­land Nickel last Jan­uary with $ 300 mil­lion in debts and 800 job losses.

Ac­cord­ing to Supreme Court doc­u­ments, In­ter­pol ad­vised AFP that Mr Mensink was last lo­cated in Hong Kong on June 8, and de­parted the next day.

Yes­ter­day, AFP con­firmed it was “cur­rently as­sist­ing the Fed­eral Court” in re­la­tion to the two war­rants.

Any­one with in­for­ma­tion can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Mr Mensink’s un­cle, former politi­cian and QN owner Clive Palmer, told the Supreme Court last week that his nephew’s at­ti­tude seemed to be that he’d “left Aus­tralia for good”.
