Nathan Exelby gives the drum on what this hearing is about.
DISQUALIFIED trainer Ben Currie is listed to appear in the Queensland Civil and Administrative Tribunal today, where he will seek to overturn two convictions for bringing racing into disrepute.
He originally faced more than 40 charges, half of which have been resolved with many the subject of appeals.
Twenty-one of those charges are in abeyance while Currie answers criminal charges before the Toowoomba Magistrate’s Court.
Currie is on bail for those charges which are unrelated to today’s QCAT hearing.
On racing charges, Currie is serving a disqualification of six years and three months and faces a $10,000 fine after a lengthy series of stewards inquiries, internal reviews and QCAT appearances.
The latest QCAT appeal involves Currie being found guilty of engaging in an improper action following an investigation into text messages relating to the intention to use an electronic apparatus, known as a jigger, capable of affecting the performances of two horses.
The hearing is listed for up to two days.
Possibly Obi was /will beon hand to report the outcome if any.
