Australian Education City, the little-known group majority-owned and led by Scientologists Bill Dongbiao Zheng and Ross Martiensen, was awarded "preferred bidder" status by former Victorian finance minister Robin Scott in 2015 to develop a massive block of crown land in Werribee.

AEC outbid three of Australia's largest property development companies for the rights to build a 1.5 million-square-metre city on the site.

But the project has since stalled with authorities raising serious doubts about AEC's capability to deliver the massive infrastructure required, which includes residential towers, universities and research hubs.
