In late September 2002, the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) launched legal action against Michael Desveaux. Desveaux is the businessman behind the www.transformation2012 .com.au web site. The site is designed to sell around 13 products, which claim to cure or alleviate illnesses including acquired immune deficiency syndrome, cancer, hepatitis and multiple sclerosis. The ACCC has petitioned the Federal Court for a temporary order to prevent Desveaux from linking the products with health claims. The matter will be taken before court from 25 September 2002.
