Moranbah man charged with fraud – 28 November 2017

 

A 44-year-old Moranbah man who is a former employee of the Central Highlands Regional Council was yesterday issued a Notice to Appear in court to face one charge of fraud following a Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation.

The CCC will allege in court the fraud relates to a series of false work invoices, totalling approximately $219,000, submitted for payment by the (then) Duaringa Shire Council.

The man is expected to appear in the Emerald Magistrates Court on 19 December 2017 in relation to the following charge:

  • 1 x Fraud – with two circumstances of aggravation contrary to sections 408C (2)(b) and (d) of the Criminal Code.

As the 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.
