As a result of a report made to my office, which I assessed as raising a potential matter of corruption under the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption Act 2012 (ICAC Act), I commenced an investigation into the conduct of a public officer working in South Australian public administration.
The outcome of that investigation was a referral from my office to the office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP). The DPP have responded by laying charges against a 36 year old man from Semaphore Park.
The man, who was employed as the Manager of a government program, has been charged with six counts of abuse of public office, alleged to have occurred between 6 December 2012 and 16 May 2014, and four counts of dishonestly dealing with documents, alleged to have occurred between 13 February 2013 and 16 May 2014.
The man will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on 24 July 2015.
