A 66-year-old Springfield man and a 51-year-old Springfield woman were each served today with a Notice to Appear in Court following an ongoing Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation.
The CCC will allege in court that the couple received a total of 20 separate corrupt payments, totalling $104,000, related to contracts for Ipswich City Council during 2012 and 2013.
Both are expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 23 April 2018 to face one charge each of Official Corruption contrary to section 87(1)(a) of the Criminal Code.
The man and the woman were previously charged by the CCC in October 2017.
As the CCC’s investigation remains ongoing, and this matter is now before the court, the CCC is unable to comment further.
The CCC is an independent agency combating major crime and reducing corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.
