Vic electoral rorts - IBAC charges 4 with fraud, perjury, conspiracy & attempt to pervert course of justice
The Age reports:
Victoria’s anti-corruption commission has charged three people who worked for former Andrews government MP Khalil Eideh with fraud, perjury and conspiracy over their alleged role in a Labor branch-stacking scam.
The charges relate to the alleged misuse of Mr Eideh’s taxpayer-funded printing budget to pay for Labor party memberships.
False invoices were allegedly sent to East Keilor company F and M Printing for work that was not done and the money used to buy ALP memberships instead.
The charges come after investigators with the Independent Broad-Based Anti-Corruption Commission raided Mr Eideh’s electorate office in Cairnlea, F and M Printing and the homes of Mr Eideh’s former office staff last year.
