IBAC charges nine over alleged transport corruption
Victoria’s anti-corruption commission has charged nine people with fraud-related offences following an IBAC investigation into alleged serious corruption in the transport sector.
IBAC’s Operation Fitzroy examined circumstances around the procurement of infrastructure works at Public Transport Victoria and the former Department of Transport between 2006 and 2013.
More than 100 charges have been laid on nine individuals and one company, with alleged offences including:
- conspiracy to cheat and defraud
- obtaining financial advantage by deception
- misconduct in public office
- giving and receiving secret commissions
- furnishing false information.
Those charged have been summoned to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 6 July.
IBAC will not comment further.
