Ipswich man charged with Official Corruption and other offences - 10 October 2017

A 66-year-old Ipswich man was this afternoon issued a Notice to Appear in court to face six criminal offences including official corruption following a Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation.

The CCC will allege in court the official corruption charge relates to corrupt payments allegedly made by a property developer to the man.

The CCC will allege the perjury offence was committed at an investigative hearing conducted as part of a CCC investigation.

The 66-year-old man is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 7 November 2017 in relation to the following charges:

  • 1 x Official Corruption contrary to Section 87 of the Queensland Criminal Code.
  • 2 x Fraud – Dishonest application of property of another contrary to Section 408c(1)(a)(i) of the Queensland Criminal Code.
  • 1 x Misconduct in Public Office contrary to Section 92A(1)(c) of the Queensland Criminal Code.
  • 1 x Perjury contrary to Section 123 of the Queensland Criminal Code.
  • 1 x Possession of a restricted drug contrary to Section 204 of the Health (Drugs and Poisons) Regulation 1996.

As the CCC’s investigation remains ongoing and this matter is now before the court, the CCC is unable to comment further.

The CCC is an independent agency combating major crime and reducing corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.
