Newport Man Charged With Misconduct In Public Office0
This afternoon the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) charged a 63-year-old man from Newport with two counts of misconduct in relation to public office.
He was arrested by the CCC and transported to Fortitude Valley Police Station where he was formally charged with two counts of misconduct in relation to public office contrary to section 92A(1)(c) of the Queensland Criminal Code.
He was bailed and is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on 5 February 2020.
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.
