Remember the two groups of the Filipino Community Council of Victoria Inc (FCCVI) conducting their respective elections?

On 10 March 2019, Marlon De Leon was elected President of FCCVI, while on 31 March 2019, Marithes Dumapias was elected President of FCCVI. Both groups were then functioning as duly elected officers providing separate and independent services. 

On 12 April 1019, De Leon filed a case against Dumapias and six members of her team including the Computer Helper Pty Ltd in the Supreme Court seeking a declaration that his Executive Committee be recognised as the duly elected officers.  The other defendants are: Sigfredo Jover, Josephine Young, Vincent Jimenez, Lorna Ramirez, Lourdes Lorenzo, and Vilma Egan. 

To avoid further litigation and expenses, the two groups have signed a Deed of Settlement and agreed to hold an election on 26 May 2019, 11 am at Scout Hall -684 Barkly Street in West Footscray.  The new Execom will hold office until 2020.  A barrister will conduct the election proceedings. 

The legal action is costing both groups more than $100,000 and will be shouldered by the FCCVI. There are solicitors and barristers involved representing the two groups.  

Do you think FCCVI should pay for De Leon’s legal case against Dumapias?
