From what I could find out it was a company in Victoria that had a business name registered which was similar to the company in Ashfield. I heard that the Ashfield mob approached ASIC about the issue but the Victorian crew responsible wound it up and then tried to do the runner.

THE security industry has been put on notice after a Pakistani international student, who was paid just $1.26 an hour during the Australian Open, was awarded nearly $120,000 in penalties and back pay.
Magistrate Amanda Chambers said in her decision that the large penalties
the back pay component was just $1589
were designed to serve not only as a deterrent to the defendants "but as a clear warning to employers [particularly in the security industry]".

Faisal Durrani, 25, now a tax consultant in Kalgoorlie, was employed at a number of events for about a month in early 2008, including the Australian Open, but ran into resistance and abuse when he challenged how little he was being paid.

The underpayment, revealed by The Age in July last year, saw a number of contractors deny employing Mr Durrani.

Last night, Mr Durrani said he was "really happy and proud, not for the money but that justice has been done". Now a permanent resident of Australia, he said the protracted legal process had been "very stressful".

In yesterday's court decision, penalties were awarded against Unified Security NSW and its director, Geoff Chain, and another security contractor, George Guirguis, who has been ordered to pay $13,200.
