Barrister on perjury charges
A HIGH-profile barrister will face perjury charges, accused of lying in a Crime and Corruption Commission coercive hearing in an investigation into a Brisbane law firm.
Operation Stockade, the same 18-month investigation that led to lawyer Adam Magill being charged with fraud and money laundering, will now see Alastair astair McDougall ( pictured) ) face court.
The CCC C yesterday y issued a no- tice to appear for the 51- year- old on two counts ts of perjury perjury.
McDougall is a former detective and Australian Crime Commission investigator who became the CCC’s principal legal officer. He is highly regarded in the legal profession and among his former law enforcement colleagues.
He has acted for rugby star Karmichael Hunt and former Bandido Jacques Teamo.
“As the investigation remains ongoing, and this matter is now before the court, the CCC will not be commenting further,” a statement read.
The Toowong man will face Brisbane Magistrates Court on December 21.
Magill was one of multiple arrests during Operation Stockade, which also led to former colleagues Corey Cullen, Mitchell Cunningham and Nathan Hounsell being charged with fraud offences.
