Former Gunns' boss and convicted insider trader John Gay could be forced to repay the proceeds of his corporate crime.
The Australian Federal Police have confirmed it's considering pursuing the money made by Gay from illegally trading in 3.4 million Gunns' shares in late 2009.
The matter is understood to have been referred to police by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission after it successfully prosecuted Gay for the trading.
The Supreme Court convicted and fined Gay $50,000 in August after he pleaded guilty to insider trading.
At the time the sentence was criticised by some commentators for being too lenient.
Yesterday the AFP said it received a referral in relation to the matter on August 28 five days after Gay was sentenced.
``As this referral is currently under evaluation, it is not appropriate to comment further,'' an AFP spokeswoman said.
