Two further people will face serious criminal charges following a Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation into the activities of a Gold Coast based law firm.

The ongoing major crime investigation, codenamed Operation Jackal, resulted in a 57-year-old Rockhampton man being served yesterday with a Notice to Appear in court to face one count of money laundering. It will be alleged the money laundering involved proceeds of serious criminal offences being paid for legal services undertaken by the firm. He is expected to appear in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court on 3 March 2021.

A 31-year-old man from Nerang was also served with a Notice to Appear in court yesterday to face two counts of supplying a dangerous drug.  He is expected to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on 17 March 2021.

As the investigation remains ongoing, and these matters are now before the court, the CCC will not be commenting further.

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