Palmer and entourage clash with media outside court

BODYGUARDS working for former Fairfax MP Clive Palmer have being photographed clashing with the media as the mining magnate made his second appearance at the Federal Court in Brisbane today. 

Mr Palmer reportedly pushed away the arm of Ten News reporter Clare Barnes as she tried to ask him a question. 

Mr Palmer has been forced to appear in the court as the liquidators appointed to examine the downfall of the Queensland Nickel refinery in Townsville take action to try and recover some of the business's debts.

When QNI collapsed it left about $300 million worth of debts behind - which liquidators PBB are now trying to recover. 

Worker's entitlements were also left unpaid until the Federal Government stepped in to pay them earlier this year.
