(e) the Debt Settlement Arrangement unfairly prejudices the interests of a creditor;

(f) the debtor has committed an offence under this Act, which causes a material detriment to the creditor;

(g) the debtor had entered into a transaction with a person at an undervalue within the preceding 3 years that has materially contributed to the debtor’s inability to pay his or her debts (other than any debts due to the person with whom the debtor entered the transaction at an undervalue);

(h) the debtor had given a preference to a person within the preceding 3 years that had the effect of substantially reducing the amount available to the debtor for the payment of his or her debts (other than a debt due to the person who received the preference).
