Commerce Minister Simon Power should discuss with officials the registration of companies with overseas directors such as John M Carr, after the recent flare up of controversy over New Zealand hardcore porn companies John Carr co- directs with “NZ Porn King” Steve Crow – which are all linked to a Florida registered professional association (P.A.) shareholder Carr Consulting P.A. Investigators should be looking at flaws in the New Zealand companies registration system that allowed a Texas-based NZ company director, John Malcolm Carr (see photo – http://www.carr.co.nz/images/jmc.jpg), with US and NZ citizenship, to falsely represent the shareholding of four NZ companies he directs (including Velocity Partners Ltd) and get away with it, using a false corporation name “Cuchara Inc” from 14 March 2000 until 16 December 2009.
Potentially dangerous gaps in New Zealand’s company registration system have been revealed as an investigation continues by the Society into the operations of a number of NZ registered companies owned by a US-registered corporation, as well as the activities of its Principal and registered agent who directs the NZ companies. A NZ-based co-director of one of his other companies is also under investigation.
