Cancer faker Belle Gibson to appear in court after not paying a $ 410k fine

Cancer fighter Belle Gibson is forced to come to court to explain why she has not yet repaid a cent of her $ 410,000 fine for cheating sick Australians from half a million dollars

  • Belle Gibson will undergo an investigative hearing at the Federal Court next month
  • The cancer faker has failed to pay a penny of the $ 410,000 she received in 2017
  • Melbourne blogger claimed that she had cured her brain cancer with natural remedies

Notorious cancer faker Belle Gibson has been ordered to appear in court after she has not paid a $ 410,000 fine for abusing her sick followers.

The fraudster, who has duped thousands of dollar customers by selling a fake diet plan, claims to cure terminal brain cancer, will undergo an investigative hearing at the Federal Court next month.

Gibson has not turned up for earlier court hearings and a warrant may be issued if it is not present on May 14, the Herald Sun reported.

The 27-year-old has failed to pay a penny of the six-figure amount since she was found guilty in 2017.

Gibson appeared to have milked $ 578,000 from followers after he had misled more than 300,000 sufferers to buy her cookbook with Whole Pantry and app for $ 3.79 per doll, promising that it would cure them just like she did.

She also lied to supporters about donating money winnings to various charities, including a boy with non-operable brain cancer. Only $ 10,000 was ever paid.

Earlier this year, blogger Melbourne reportedly blew $ 15,000 on a five-week trip to East Africa with her fiancé Clive Rothwell and nine-year-old son Oliver in February.

She refused to answer a single question asked by A Current Affair and only grinned as she walked to her car with a purple scarf and glasses on.

The program quoted a source close to the family that said the trio flew on Qantas and enjoyed a safari that would most likely cost around $ 15,000.

Gibson fascinated and disgusted the public after her absurd claims were revealed in 2015 and was dragged by the courts by Consumer Affairs Victoria.

She showed contempt for the whole process, never apologizing or appearing for one trial until she received the great fine in September 2017.

The serial liar has not paid a dollar of her fine in the 18 months since, despite the fact that the federal court Debra Mortimer gives her a warning in November.

The warning pointed out that non-payment of the fine would make her liable for imprisonment, seizure of property or other measures.

& # 39; You will be subject to imprisonment, seizure of property or other penalties & # 39 ;, according to the cancellation.

Gibson can be sentenced for contempt of the judge if she does not continue to pay the fine.

Mother of two Kylie Willey, 42, who discards chemotherapy for her lymphoma to follow the Gibson diet, believes she should pay or be locked up.

& # 39; It makes my blood boil, she was my inspiration and her advice could have killed me & # 39 ;, she told A Current Affair.

Ik I don't think she even believes she did something wrong, otherwise she would pay her fines, not live in this high life.

& # 39; Why is it that her passport does not have to be returned, why can she get away with this? & # 39;
