Shadow Police Minister Rob Lucas said today that stunning revelations of alleged corruption by a police officer were a major embarrassment for Premier Rann and Police Minister Holloway.
SAPOL has revealed the arrest of a 34 year old police officer who is alleged to have provided confidential information to ‘people engaged in organized crime with connections to motorcycle gangs.’
“If these allegations are proven correct then it is a scandal of monumental proportions,” Mr Lucas said.
“This revelation is a major embarrassment for Mr. Rann who has campaigned for years on supposedly getting tough on bikie gangs.
“Not only has Mr. Rann failed to keep his promise that he would knock down bikie fortresses or headquarters but now it is alleged a member of the police force has provided confidential information to persons connected to bikie gangs!
“Mr. Rann and Mr. Holloway must now share whatever information they can with the public that has been provided to them by SAPOL.
“In particular they should reveal when they were first advised of this issue and whether they have been advised by SAPOL of any ongoing investigations into other officers or persons.”
