Citing documents filed with the Supreme Court of New South Wales, ABC News said Austbrokers Canberra is seeking to recover the company money Johnston allegedly used to pay for personal expenses over an eight-year period. These supposedly included overseas trips, house renovations, and work on the ex-boss’s supercars.
According to the news service, the statement of claim points to tampered invoices.
Johnston, meanwhile, is cited as refuting the allegations, arguing that the expenses were business-related and that the invoices had company approval.
The June 26 court list seen by Insurance Business files the Austbrokers Canberra Pty Limited v Gregory Wayne Johnston case under Justice D Hammerschlag.
