Sterling First victims appealing for help in their fight for compensation

Victims of the Sterling First collapse are appealing for help in the latest stage of their fight for compensation.

Around 100 West Australians remain in limbo after the collapse of the lifetime rent scheme – which has left victims out of pocket and potentially facing eviction.

As part of the court action against CommcoSuper, lawyers acting on behalf of the victims need access to documents which are in the possession of the liquidators of the Sterling First group.

Sterling victims’ advocate Cath Dall says the liquidators are requesting they issue a subpoena to compel them to supply the documents and cover their internal administration costs and potentially their legal costs too.

Ms Dall told Gareth Parker unless the group raises funds, the seniors will have to bear the cost which is money that they don’t have.

She’s appealing for donations and if you’d like to help, you can find the link to the group’s GoFundMe page here.
