More ar­rests in fraud case

The Gympie Times - - NATION -

AN­OTHER four men from Syd­ney have been em­broiled in Aus­tralia’s largest al­leged white-col­lar crime, which brought down a se­nior pub­lic of­fi­cial more than a year ago.

The men – aged 37, 48, 55 and 60 – were is­sued court at­ten­dance no­tices this week by the Aus­tralian Fed­eral Po­lice.

Ten peo­ple are al­ready be­fore the courts for their al­leged in­volve­ment in steal­ing an es­ti­mated $130 mil­lion from the Aus­tralian Tax­a­tion Of­fice, af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by Op­er­a­tion El­brus that kicked off in 2016. The four men are due to face Syd­ney’s Down­ing Cen­tre Lo­cal Court on July 31.
