Last year, I got an email from "Jane Doe" forwarding me a copy (from Tim Singh, Movement Secretary of the Young Liberal Movement), of the Young Liberal Movement Council Annual Meeting Memorandum of Results from 7 November 2004. I didn't put this info up because there was no independent way to verify it.
I mention this because I was just given a tip regarding an article from the Deccan Herald, an Indian newspaper in Bangalore from Wednesday, July 28, 2004 regarding Ben Cass and Peter Vlahos.
Announcing the ‘Education Roadshow : Melbourne - 2004’ to be held at 4 pm on Wednesday, Director of International Business Development for Universal Migration, Vasan Srinivasan said on Tuesday that the education consultants wish to smoothen the process of education in Australia.This is very similar to the Hindu Times story that Brent broke a few weeks ago.
Mr Srinivasan said, “More than 10,000 Indian students went to Australia for higher studies in 2003. With more students opting for higher education outside India, and Australia being a favoured destination, safety and comfort are major concerns.”
SSI Director Benjamin Cass said what sets this agency apart from Indian agents is that they are the service provider themselves, and not just a referral service.
The seminar will begin with an overview on Australian education. The seminar on ‘Global Opportunities via Migration to Australia’ will be held by Peter D Vlahos, Barrister and Solicitor of the Supreme Court of Victoria and Mr Srinivasan. Entry is free.
I wonder who Vassan Srinivasan is...?
