Fraud charges after man deported from Thailand

18 Jun 2017 8:50am

Detectives from SAPOL's Anti-Corruption Branch have arrested a Victorian man who was wanted over offences allegedly committed in South Australia in 2012, after he was deported from Thailand to Melbourne on Thursday 15 June.

Police will allege he improperly obtained money from the Victims of Crime Compensation Fund in South Australia in 2012, when several other suspects were arrested in connection with the matter.

The man was extradited to South Australia from Victoria on Friday 16 June where he was taken in to custody.

The 32-year-old man, previously of Port Lincoln, was charged with six counts of aid and abet abuse of public office and six counts of dishonest dealing with documents. His bail has been refused and he will appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on Monday 19 June.
