Another former Corruption and Crime Commission officer has been charged with corruptly falsifying a record, the second in as many days in Western Australia.
The charges relate to an alleged incident in 2011, which was referred to police by the Parliamentary Inspector for the CCC in December.
On Thursday police charged a 43-year-old former CCC officer with giving false and misleading evidence before a CCC examination.
He was also charged with corruptly falsifying a record.
Police have now charged a second 43-year-old former CCC officer with two counts of corruptly falsifying a record.
CCC chief executive Mike Silverstone said the CCC had fully cooperated with the police investigation.
“I reiterate that the commission expects the highest standards from all of its officers at all times and the allegations, when they were reported to us last year, caused great concern,” Mr Silverstone said.
“We launched an immediate investigation and reported our findings to the Parliamentary Inspector for the CCC, who then referred the matter to police.
“Clearly, it is very disappointing to see anyone who once worked for the commission face charges of this nature – but it would be improper to comment further.”
Both 43-year-old men are due to appear in the Perth Magistrate’s Court on September 25.
