A 60-year-old man from Victoria was today served with a Notice to Appear in Court following an ongoing Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation into an Ipswich City Council matter.
The man will face one charge of Official Corruption contrary to section 87(1)(b) of the Criminal Code and is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 13 June 2018.
The CCC will allege in court that the man provided corrupt payments, totalling $104,000, related to contracts for Ipswich City Council during 2012 and 2013. The CCC charged two people on 18 April 2018 relating to this matter. See previous media release.
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.
