The fraud case involving former Brisbane forklift dealer Graeme Dillon is yet to go to trial, with the matter adjourned for mention on 20 July 2015.

Dillon was charged with fraud in 2012 following an ASIC investigation into his former Brisbane company, Independent Forklift Services (Qld) and its North Queensland subsidiary, both since liquidated ( News #638).

ASIC alleges that between November 2006 and May 2007, Dillon dishonestly induced Capital Finance Australia Pty Ltd to provide finance to the companies by lodging false invoices for the purchase of forklifts.

The criminal charges were laid under section 408C(1) of the Queensland Criminal Code and carry a penalty of five years’ imprisonment. As the charge in relation to Independent Forklift Services (Qld) Pty Ltd relates to a sum greater than $30,000, the potential penalty (for that charge) is increased to a maximum of 10 years imprisonment.

After appearing in the Brisbane Magistrates Court in November 2012, Dillon was released on bail and the matter adjourned for further mention before the court on 18 January 2013. On that date, he appeared in court where the matter was adjourned until 8 February 2013. On 22 March 2013, Dillon was committed to stand trial on a date to be fixed. Since then, a trial date was set for 17 February 2014, but subsequently adjourned a number of times, with the matter now adjourned for mention next month.
