Family Ties

Updated: Oct 25, 2020

The security company, Unified Security Pty Ltd, is owned by one Henry Pinskier, who is a factional member of the McNamara branch of the Labor Party (ALP) and not only that but his daughter Abby Pinskier works for Daniel Andrews as an adviser in the Office of the Premier.

This begs the question, was she the one that sent a text to the security company prior to the meeting to decide on which security company to use, telling them to ‘get their ducks in order?’ Or in other words, make sure you are ready because a 30-million-dollar job is coming your way. (That text is in the papers submitted to the Coute Hotel Quarantine Inquiry)

Did Daniel Andrews favour a, unregistered with the government, security company without a formal tender as a reward for giving his cousin a job? Or was he influenced by the Pinskier family to give them the lucrative security contract?

Because, although the company was not known to the union movement and did not sit on the government's preferred panel of security suppliers, it still became the main contractor for the quarantine program, offered $28.6 million for work across 13 Melbourne hotels. Nice work if you can get it. And you can get it with family ties.

That plus the Sutton family firmly entrenched in the health sector (Professor Brett Sutton borrowed from the Burnet Institute to act as Victorian Chief Health Officer and his brother Trevor Sutton married to Jane Halton, a non-medical person who chairs the global Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations and in March 2020 was appointed to the executive board of the Australian National COVID-19 Coordination Commission.

Sterling Services Group (SSG) was contracted by Unified Security to fill more than 4000 shifts at 13 hotels, including the Rydges on Swanston, from the start of the quarantine program at the end of March through to July. Does Daniel Andrews brother-in-law works for or is associated by reason of being a majority shareholder in SSG. Checking with ASIC it seems that SSG is nothing but a registered business name with no details available on the company. The mystery deepens.

Did Daniel Andrews really favour giving the security contract worth around 30 million dollars to a company his close relation held a majority shareholding in? A company that usually only grosses around 3 Million dollars per annum? Because that would violate Section 55 of the Victorian Constitution. Naughty boy if he did!

What did Abby Pinskier advise Andrews?

Who advised united to get their act together prior to the meeting?

What is the relationship between the Pinskier Clan and Daniel Andrews?

Why was an unregistered with the government security company selected for the job?

And who gave them a tip off?

These are questions the Inquiry should be asking, especially they want to have clean hands.

Indicators are that Daniel Andrews is gunning for a Federal seat. Given his history isn’t it likely he will be after Abo’s spot as the prime seat to get? And then….Andrews for PM? How does that sound with the entire country locked down?

So, the question remains, would not the above violate Section 55 of the Victorian Constitution? And what would that mean for Daniel Andrews?

And lastly here is an image of Daniel Andrews, Jo Biden and others at a dinner hosted by the Victorian Governor General Linda Dessau AC. Linda has been a close buddy with Daniel Andrews for 30 odd years, they went to school together. He appointed her Governor General, so she is hardly going to boot him out the door they being BFF. Make of that what you will.
