Three men to face secret commission offences - 9 March 2018

Three men will face secret commission and other criminal offences following a Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation into the circumstances of how a family member of a former senior hospital and health service employee was employed by a company contracted to the same health service.

A 47-year-old South Australia man was charged by the CCC today. He was bailed and is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 20 March 2018 to face the following charges:

  • 1 x Receipt or solicitation of a secret commission, contrary to section 442B(b) of the Criminal Code
  • 1 x False or misleading receipt or account, contrary to section 442D(a) of the Criminal Code; and
  • 1 x Fraudulently produces/uses any record which is false, contrary to section 430(e) of the Criminal Code.

A 41-year-old Brisbane business man was arrested and charged by the CCC on 22 February 2018. He appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court earlier this week on the following charges:

  • 1 x Gift or offer of secret commission, contrary to section 442BA(b) of the Criminal Code
  • 1 x False or misleading receipt or account, contrary to section 442D(a) of the Criminal Code; and
  • 1 x Fraudulently produces/uses any record which is false, contrary to section 430(e) of the Criminal Code.

He was bailed to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on 18 April 2018.

The CCC has also obtained an arrest warrant for a 65-year-old man who currently resides in the United Kingdom. He was a former senior employee of the hospital and health service. The warrant will be activated if the man returns to Australia.

The CCC will allege these men were involved in providing or receiving a secret commission after arranging employment for a family member of the then senior Queensland hospital and health service employee. It is further alleged this occurred by varying an existing contract between the hospital and health service and a company associated with the 41-year-old man.

The other charges relate to the alleged fraudulent creation of records.

As these matters are now before the court, it is not appropriate for the CCC to comment further.

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