Sinbad the grease merchant jailed . .

Perennial virgin oil trader “Sinbad” – who started Australia’s first grease empire from humble beginnings in Park Ridge has been jailed for a 30 year dispensation of excriment into near-by waterways.

Detection and conviction had become a real possibility after a family camping in a remote esturary on a sandy knoll overnight were awoken by illegal commotion and a grease-flood.

A cadre of under-educated workers had backed a truck load of a sticky waste matter to the edge of a vegetation bank and unwittingly, pressure pumped the slime through the family gathering below.

One young child had been colagulated and swept into a treachurous current resulting in death.

SINBAD had pleaded remorse through community leadership and donations to environmental organisations.
