Commissioner Bruce Lander said today that the pair would face the Adelaide Magistrates Court next Wednesday (March 11), charged with offences including abuse of public office and acting dishonestly.

A 44-year-old Henley Beach woman was arrested on January 30 and charged with one count of abuse of public office and three counts of acting dishonestly, Lander said.

A 62-year-old man from Goodwood was arrested on March 5 and charged with two counts of abuse of public office, three counts of deception, one count of acting dishonestly and five counts of dishonestly dealing with documents.

“It will be alleged that both individuals claimed travel expenses including airfares, accommodation and meals, for travel that was for private purposes,” Lander said.

“It will also be alleged that during the course of my investigation both former executives took steps to conceal their conduct in respect of the claims made.”

Lander also revealed that a 50-year-old man from Crystal Brook formerly employed as a public officer in TAFE SA has been charged with one count of dishonestly dealing with documents.

“It will be alleged that the man falsified a document to benefit another person.”

The man has been summonsed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court on April 22.
