Fake CCC let­ter in Ex­mouth

Pilbara News - - News - Tom Zaun­mayr

A hoax let­ter go­ing around Ex­mouth claim­ing to be from the Cor­rup­tion and Crime Com­mis­sion has been iden­ti­fied.

A CCC spokes­woman said the false let­ter was seek­ing com­mu­nity as­sis­tance into claims the Shire of Ex­mouth was be­ing in­ves­ti­gated for con­nec­tions to or­gan­ised crime, WA Po­lice and il­le­gal drugs.

The au­thor had not been iden­ti­fied at time of print.

The CCC is mak­ing in­quiries into pos­si­ble se­ri­ous mis­con­duct at the Shire of Ex­mouth and un­der­took a search of the Shire’s premises in Au­gust.

The CCC has also called for in­for­ma­tion from the com­mu­nity, and its in­ves­ti­ga­tion is con­tin­u­ing.
