The 57-year-old man from Adelaide’s eastern suburbs has been charged with two counts of abuse of public office.

“My office has been undertaking an investigation into the conduct of public officers employed by a state government statutory corporation and other persons,” says Commissioner Bruce Lander.

The man has been bailed to appear in the Adelaide Magistrates Court in October.
