As previously confirmed, The Association for the Aged (Tafta) has complied with the court order to evict Mr Chapman on the agreed upon date.
Mr Chapman was notified of his eviction and given adequate time to make alternate accommodation arrangements with family, friends, and other welfare organisations within due course.
Tafta remains committed to the safety and security of Tafta elders, and once again, the decision to launch legal proceedings against Mr Chapman was done out of the necessity to protect the Tafta elders in our care.
CEO Femada Shamam re-iterates that Tafta has always been – and will continue to be – open and transparent to scrutiny. “We are more than willing to engage with anyone who has a genuine concern about our organisation and its processes. The allegations that an elderly person has suffered abuse at our hands is a serious one. We have in the past, and constantly remain open to receiving information about specific incidences of abuse reported to us, so that they may be investigated.”
