Shalom House: Mat­ter ad­journed to Oct 19

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

THE le­gal stoush be­tween the City of Swan and drug re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion pro­gram Shalom House will con­tinue af­ter the State Ad­min­is­tra­tive Tri­bunal ad­journed the mat­ter last Fri­day.

The case was sent back to SAT last month by the Supreme Court af­ter seven months of de­lib­er­a­tion.

The mat­ter will be in the SAT on Oc­to­ber 19, but a fi­nal hear­ing has not yet been set.

Swan chief ex­ec­u­tive Mike Fo­ley said the next hear­ing would be to re­view and con­sider ex­tra ma­te­rial, which was to be sub­mit­ted by Shalom House.

Shalom House chief ex­ec­u­tive Peter Lyn­don-James said it was frus­trat­ing that the Supreme Court had re­ferred the mat­ter back to SAT.

“While we were pleased with the re­sult of the Supreme Court process, and we were ini­tially hope­ful that the City of Swan would re­con­sider its po­si­tion in light of the Supreme Court’s de­ci­sion, un­for­tu­nately that is not the case,” he said, adding that he was con­cerned at the use of lo­cal res­i­dents’ funds by the City in tak­ing Shalom House to the SAT and the Supreme Court.
