Now that Kerry Packer has moved on, surely it is time that one of the
great corporate mysteries of recent years be solved. Sue Palmer, the
American wife of former BRW Rich Lister Ross Palmer, has been in touch with
Crikey about the saga that was ANI. She explains her story as follows:

I appeared on Four
Corners
in 1997 in a story that caused
Kerry Packer to sue the ABC. My
husband and I sold our public company, Palmer Tube Mills,
to ANI in 1994. It was a media war for a long time, with the board of ANI
winning on pushing Ross off the board. Unlike some directors, he was asking all the right
questions.
