A Victorian public servant is under police investigation for the alleged leaking of documents revealing the Andrew government’s road to recovery to the Herald Sun.
Victoria Police confirmed on Thursday the Department of Health and Human Services employee was under investigation by its E-Crime squad after a referral by DHHS.
“Victoria Police can confirm it has received a referral from a government department in relation to unauthorised access of information,” a spokeswoman said.
“This matter is being investigated by the E-Crime Squad and as this investigation is ongoing, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.”
In a statement, the DHHS confirmed the employee’s alleged conduct had been referred to the police.
“This is a police matter and it is therefore inappropriate for DHHS to comment further,” a spokeswoman said.
