ย Footscray fire: Melbourne factory spewing toxic smoke belongs to accountant targeted in ATO raids,ย  building contained asbestos. Residents were warned to stay indoors. #auspol MORE HERE;

The factory at the centre of a huge fire spewing toxic smoke over large swathes of Melbourne is owned by an accountant recently targeted in massive raids by the tax office.

The ABC can also reveal that a Hells Angel facing charges in South Australia over a massive alleged drug importation was a director of the company through which the accountant owns the factory.

The fire at the factory at 420 Somerville Road, Tottenham, brought Melbourne’s western suburbs to a standstill on Thursday morning.

Authorities warned that the building contained asbestos. Residents were warned to stay indoors, and some schools closed.

Mr Baldwin’s firm Baldwin Taxation and Advisory was recently raided by ATO officers investigating an alleged scheme that helped client companies evade paying income tax through a range of alleged mechanisms, including shifting assets and employees to other companies.

Michaelia Cash declined to give AFP statement on union raids: fresh claims. #auspol …whether donations made by the AWU more than a decade ago. Subpoena??? More here;ย  & @FinancialReview

Michaelia Cash faces allegations she declined to provide a witness statement to the Australian Federal Police.

Cabinet minister Michaelia Cash has become the latest target of the payback culture inside the Liberal Party, after allegations emerged that she declined to provide a witness statement to the Australian Federal Police investigating the leaking of a union raid from within her office.

Senator Cash, who was demoted in Sunday’s leadership reshuffle after turning on Malcolm Turnbull, rejected any assertion she refused to cooperate.

It is understood she told the officers that she did not need to make a fresh statement because she had been quizzed on the matter many times in Parliament and everything she knew was on the public record.

The AFP was investigating a tip-off to the media about a raid on the offices of the Australian Workers’ Union last year.
