It was reported (Paywall-free) in 2012 International Natural Energy paid $201,000 to send Susan Morrice and Mary Ann Malone on a 13-day EDUCO Seminar in the Bahamas.
INE paid Mr Quinn and his companies $544,000 in 2008. In 2010 they spent $201,000 to send Ms Morrice and an “associate” of hers Mary Ann Malone to a 13-day seminar in the Bahamas organised by Mr Quinn.
“The figures are inherently preposterous and no reason has been given why the business of INE required, or justified, expenditure of this sort,” said the judge in relation to the trip to the Bahamas. “It seems to have been a jaunt for which Ms Morrice should have paid out of her own pockets,” said Judge Bannister.
