Two people charged with money laundering and fraud - 1.12.2015

The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) has today charged two people with money laundering and fraud for their alleged involvement in investment frauds.

The charges are the result of the CCC’s ongoing investigation known as Operation Lima Violin II.

The CCC will allege a 74-year-old man and a 46-year-old woman were involved in fraudulent activity with a company called Pegasus Trader Pty Ltd.

The man and woman recently travelled to Australia from Thailand. They were arrested today and formally charged at Southport Watchhouse with:

  • 1 x Money Laundering contrary to Section 250 of the Criminal Proceeds Confiscation Act 2002
  • 1 x Fraud contrary to Section 408C of the Queensland Criminal Code

The man and woman were bailed with conditions, including surrendering their passports. They are both expected to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on 6 January 2016.

As these matters are now before the court and operation Lima Violin II remains ongoing, the CCC will not comment further.
