Two people will face fraud offences following an ongoing investigation by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC).

Yesterday a 59-year-old Camp Hill man and a 55-year-old Camp Hill woman were each served a Notice to Appear in court. The man who is a school principal, and the woman who is a school teacher, were jointly charged with 14 fraud offences contrary to section 408C of the Criminal Code.

It will be alleged in court they fraudulently accessed leave entitlements. They are both expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 17 December 2020.

The man was previously charged by the CCC with 35 criminal offences. See previous media release: https://www.ccc.qld.gov.au/news/school-principal-charged-fraud-and-misconduct-offences

The CCC has advised the Department of Education’s ethical standards unit about this matter.

As these matters are now before the court, and the investigation remains ongoing, 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.
