ACCC issues contempt of court proceedings against Lualhati Jutsen

12 July 2010

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has issued proceedings against Lualhati Jutsen (also known as 'Teddi Jutsen') alleging contempt of court.

Ms Jutsen is the first respondent in the ACCC's proceedings involving allegations of participation in a pyramid selling scheme referred to as TVI Express, 'TVI Team Oz'.

The ACCC alleges that Ms Jutsen breached an order made by Justice Yates in the Federal Court on 14 May 2010. This order restrained Ms Jutsen from operating a certain bank account, including making withdrawals.

The ACCC also alleges that Ms Jutsen breached an order made by Justice Bennett in the Federal Court on 20 May 2010. This order restrains Ms Jutsen from withdrawing funds from a certain bank account other than amounts reasonably necessary for Ms Jutsen's ordinary living expenses.

A directions hearing has been set down in the Federal Court in Sydney on 14 July 2010.
