DEPT OF HOME AFFAIRS: Statement on Operation Dreadnought

Operation Dreadnought uncovered evidence that a former Australian Border Force (ABF) officer engaged in corrupt conduct by providing sensitive operational information to an associate which assisted a drug importation syndicate.

In her report, the Integrity Commissioner makes a number of corruption prevention considerations including the role of social capital, which needs to be assessed in terms of internal and external relationships, and information security and controls.

On 18 August 2020, the former ABF officer plead guilty to one charge of abuse of public office under section 142.2 of the Criminal Code 1995 (Cth).

The following day he was sentenced to six months imprisonment which was suspended upon entering into a good behaviour order for nine months.
