A 36-year-old Victorian man appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning after being charged by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) with official corruption.

CCC officers travelled to Victoria last week and with assistance from Victoria Police located and arrested the man.

Following his arrest on Wednesday 3 April 2019, he appeared in the Dandenong Magistrates Court.

He was granted bail on the condition he appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today.

He faces one count of official corruption contrary to section 87(1)(b) of the Queensland Criminal Code.

The arrest brings the total number of people charged from Operation Windage, an investigation into Ipswich City Council, to 16.

He is expected to reappear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 10 June 2019.

As this matter is now before the court, 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.
