McCurdy stands trial
THE trial of Ovens Valley state MP Tim McCurdy commenced earlier this week at the Melbourne County Court before Judge George Georgiou.
The trial is estimated to last for 10 days and Mr McCurdy faces fraud related charges, to which he previously pleaded not guilty, that were allegedly committed while he was a real estate agent in 2009.
It has been alleged that he falsified a real estate company letterhead to obtain sales commissions from the sale of two rural properties.
The incident occurred when Mr McCurdy was a real estate agent in Cobram before he entered parliament.
