Belle Gibson has reached her deadline to take part in Federal Court proceedings being brought against her by Consumer Affairs Victoria.
Last month in a hearing at the Federal Court in Melbourne, Justice Debbie Mortimer issued a court order giving Ms Gibson until July 10 to take part in civil proceedings brought against her by Consumer Affairs Victoria.
The day has arrived and only time will tell if Belle Gibson will participate and defend herself against claims that she defrauded consumers using fake cancer claims and dangerous health claims which had the potential to kill people who believed her lies.
Just a few weeks ago, while Channel 7 was outside Belle Gibson’s Northcote home seeking to question the cancer scammer about her deception, Belle Gibson called the police with an unfounded complaint that the media was harassing her. It seems that Belle Gibson is fine with the media if they are fawning all over her or worse paying her for her story.
In any case the deadline for Belle Gibson is upon her and she must now decide whether she will take part in the court proceedings being brought against her. If she doesn’t she faces massive fines and orders to make an apology. If she does, it will be intriguing to see how this practiced con woman will twist her story yet again in an attempt to avoid justice.
