The Central Australian Aboriginal Media Association (CAAMA) has been asked to show cause why it should should not be put under special administration.
CAAMA touts itself as Australia’s largest Aboriginal media organisation. It runs a radio service and is linked with the local television station, Imparja.
The question was asked on January 30 by Michael Strecker, delegate of the Registrar of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Corporations.
“If I do this, your corporation will be run by a special administrator appointed by the Registrar or his delegate,” he says.
“That person will have a broad range of powers over the affairs of your corporation.”
CAAMA was given till the close of business on Friday, February 28 to reply.
The Alice Springs News will seek comment from CAAMA tomorrow.
