In the interest of transparency the VLI committee has decided to publish a brief summary and timeline of recent events.
This statement does not apportion blame or innocence of any party. It only addresses the role the VLI committee could take under the rules of our constitution.(these are published on our website).
The committee cannot and will not publish personal names or details of any party involved.
On the 12th of May 2018 the then president of VLI tendered his resignation as president, stating health and personal issues.
On the 1st of June 2018 at 5.19 pm VLI received a email from a member requesting the former president of VLI / committee member position be reviewed (The president had already stepped down).
This email was acknowledged on 2nd of June at 11.21 am.
VLI received another email on the 1st of June at 7.40 pm demanding a response within 24 hours. This email was in relation to the first email received a couple of hours earlier.
This email was acknowledged on 2nd of June at 10.15 am.
When the member in question was made aware that there was a grievance lodged with VLI he tendered his resignation from VLI on the 3rd of June 2018.
As the constitution of VLI ONLY allows for any action to be taken against its members there was nothing the VLI committee could do as the person in question was no longer a member.
The matter in now outside the scope of VLI and therefore is closed as to any action VLI could or should take.
VLI will not enter into any public debate on this matter and any negative or inflammatory comments will be deleted
