Update 8.15am December 17:

 

LAE Enterprises, a company connected to Alice Springs' native title organisation, Lhere Artepe, today confirmed reports in the Alice Springs News Online that Darryl Pearce (pictured) has been sacked.

The statement said: "In response to the need to address significant business challenges, in particular the slippage in timing of completion of the Mt Johns Stage 1 [real estate] Project (above right), the Board of Lhere Artepe Enterprises has reviewed operating costs and made a decision to reduce ongoing overheads to ensure LAE’s continued financial sustainability.
As a result of this management review, the CEO position for LAE Enterprises has been made redundant and Mr Darryl Pearce has left his position with the company effective 2 December 2011."

 

Update 9.30am December 13:

 

Darryl Pearce has been sacked from the position of CEO of Lhere Artepe Enterprises Pty Ltd (LAE), which Bob Liddle describes as the investment arm of the Alice Springs native title body.
Mr Liddle is a senior member of the Mbantua estate group, one of the three moieties of Lhere Artepe Aboriginal Corporation (LAAC).
Mr Liddle says his sister, Pat Miller, the Territory's Deputy Administrator and chairwoman of LAE, had given Mr Pearce notice in writing a few days ago.

A meeting has been called for 10am today.

A prominent member of the group within Lhere Artepe seeking to reform the organization, Ian Conway (pictured left), says: "Now is the time to refocus Lhere Artepe, he argues, for the sake of the whole town where once black and white lived in harmony but now the tensions are "revved up".
