A 59-year-old man from Camp Hill was charged today with 35 serious criminal offences following an investigation by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC).
The man, who is a school principal employed by the Department of Education, was charged with 34 counts of fraud contrary to section 408C of the Criminal Code and one count of misconduct in relation to public office contrary to section 92A of the Criminal Code. It will be alleged in court the man misused his department issued corporate credit card and dishonestly obtained money relating to school activities.
He is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 17 December 2020.
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.
