Diversion for Wandin

29 Jun 2017

Disqualified Melbourne councillor Brooke Wandin has escaped conviction on electoral fraud charges.

The former “Indigenous Voice” candidate was granted a diversion order in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on June 6.

Ms Wandin was charged by Victorian Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate with unlawfully nominating for last October’s City of Melbourne election. She was further charged with “failure to declare”.

While she was declared elected by the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) after the October 22 election, Ms Wandin was never sworn in.

It is understood Ms Wandin did not challenge the allegation that she incorrectly declared that she lived at the Kensington address of former councillor Richard Foster.

It is understood that she argued that she naively trusted the advice of others and had unknowingly broken the law.

Mr Foster is facing similar charges and is due to face court on July 18. It is understood he will be contesting the charges.
