Bawinanga special administration extended

he Registrar of Indigenous Corporations, Mr Anthony Beven, announced today that the special administration of the Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation has been extended until 30 June 2013.

The corporation, which is based in Maningrida in the Northern Territory, was placed under special administration on 31 October 2012 after the Registrar received a request for assistance from the directors. On that date the Registrar appointed Mr Peter Lanthois and Mr Stephen Duncan as the joint and several special administrators of the corporation for six months (until 1 May 2013).

‘This is a complex special administration and the extension is needed to complete the reform of this important corporation,’ Mr Beven said.
