Australia: Department of Communities corruption investigation uncovers another alleged accomplice

The investigation into corruption at the WA Department of Communities has uncovered a third alleged accomplice of former executive Paul Whyte.

Mr. Whyte will have more charges added to the 530 he pleaded guilty to after his role in a $22 million rort – Western Australia’s biggest ever case of public sector theft – was discovered.

WA Police will allege a 57-year-old-man entered into an arrangement with Mr. Whyte, and have charged both the East Fremantle man and Mr. Whyte with 16 counts of Public Officer Acts Corruptly.
