Cover-up allegation

28 Feb 2018

By Shane Scanlan

The City of Melbourne is refusing to discuss corruption allegations against a senior manager who was sacked last September.

CBD News understands that an internal council investigation resulted in the officer being summarily dismissed following information being provided by a whistle-blower.

However, current council staff have recently contacted CBD News alleging a management cover-up.

CBD News contacted some of the eight council employees who were purged from the same section of council in late August, immediately before the senior manager was sacked.

Allegations of fraud and deception have been made, but no concrete evidence has been provided.

CBD News asked the City of Melbourne:

Can you confirm the reasons for the dismissal?

Has the council reported the officer’s activities to the police?

If not, why not?

Council spokesperson Brodie Bott replied: “The City of Melbourne does not make comment on individual staff.  As always, the City of Melbourne adheres to all reporting requirements in relation to fraud, corruption and or issues of misconduct.”
