Former Queensland Transport Inspector Convicted — 04.05.2007

Queensland Transport Inspector, Edward Cornelius Moran, 46, of Bray Park, was sentenced today in the Brisbane District Court to a total of seven (7) years imprisonment for fraud and official corruption offences.

The prosecution followed a joint investigation undertaken by the Crime and Misconduct Commission, Queensland Transport (QT) and the Queensland Police Service Fraud Squad.

Between September 2002 and July 2003, Mr Moran and four others were involved in a scheme to fraudulently issue QT road safety certificates.

A number of motor industry dealers took advantage of the opportunity to obtain approximately 3,500 fraudulent QT road safety certificates.  QT outlaid $665,000 to re-examine those vehicles for which false road safety certificates were issued.

Mr Moran’s four accomplices:- William Henry Brady, 69, Graeme John Brindley, 74, Gary John Shale, 48 and William Jeffrey Keilly, 45 have been imprisoned for their involvement in the scheme.

In sentencing Mr Moran for two counts of official corruption, two counts of fraud and one count of fraud with a circumstance of aggravation, Judge Forno QC ordered that Mr Moran be eligible for parole after serving three years of the sentence.
