A man has been charged with filing false candidate donations and obtaining a total of $15,000 by deception.
Strict suppression orders prevent Stuff from identifying the man.
He is charged with causing a loss valued at $10,000 to another person, by deception and without claim of right, between July and August 2020.
This charge carries a maximum penalty of seven years’ imprisonment.
He is further charged with obtaining ownership of a pecuniary advantage – namely $5000 – by deception and without claim of right in August 2020.
I don’t know anything about this case, except what is in this story. But it appears the person charged was a candidate for Parliament. Hopefully the suppression orders are lifted soon.
