HIH Royal Commission. Day 131. Wayne Martin QC examining Raymond Reginald Williams.

Martin: "Could you tell us please if, on your frequent first-class trips to London, you booked the seat next to you for your briefcase ?"

Williams: "I don't recall specifically. But that may have been the case, on some occasions. "

Martin: "That your briefcase was also travelling first class?"

Williams: "That may have been the case."

Martin: "Did you express the view to Qantas that this briefcase should be eligible for frequent flier points ?"

Williams: "I can't recall that."

Martin: "And were you subsequently informed that said briefcase would not be eligible for such points on the grounds that it was not, in fact, a person ?"

Williams: "That may have been the airline's position on that issue."

Martin: "Was that briefcase, from that point on, booked under the name of Casey Williams ?"

Williams: "Casey Reginald Williams, AM."

The story has been doing the round for more than a week. However, if you check the transcripts of the royal commission website there was no such examination!
