Legal threats by “AVF Legal”. Unsigned emails from “AVF Legal” have been sent to some Aurovilians containing threats based on misinterpretation of the Auroville Foundation act. The bona fide working committee has sent an information to the community, here below.

On legal threats by “AVF Legal”
Dear community,

It has come to our knowledge that an unknown group of people referring to themselves as “AVF Legal” have been sending threatening communications to residents over the past few weeks. Specifically, this group of unknown people have been misinterpreting and misquoting the AVF Act (1988), the AVF Rules (1997) and other documents and making that the basis of their threats.

Unsigned emails from “AVF Legal” may be ignored since this group does not have any standing or legitimacy whatsoever and have previously refused to identify themselves. Please also forward us any email ([email protected]) you might receive from this entity and let us know if you have any questions.

We thank those residents who have already reported emails from “AVF Legal” to us, and those who have stood strong to resist the attempts by the Office of the Secretary (through AVF Legal or any other unrecognised group of residents) to sideline and silence the Residents’ Assembly and infringe on its rights.

Your Working Committee
