Clive Palmer’s wife faces Federal Court

Clive Palmer’s wife says her husband was being funny when he told lawyers for liquidators of one of his business that he was a pawn in her hands.

Anna Alexandrova Palmer, a chartered accountant and solicitor, faced the Federal Court in Brisbane on Thursday to answer questions about her role as a former director of one of her husband’s companies, Mineralogy.

Her appearance was required as part of an ongoing dispute between Mr Palmer and liquidators for his Queensland Nickel refinery in Townsville, which collapsed three years ago.

During questioning by lawyers for liquidators in May 2017, Mr Palmer told the Federal Court Ms Palmer controlled “financial things”.
