Two more charged following investigation into Gold Coast law firm

Another two people have been charged following a major Crime and Corruption Commission investigation into the activities of a Gold Coast based law firm.

The ongoing investigation, codenamed Operation Jackal, has already seen two people charged with money laundering and drug offences in December last year.

However, a further two people, including a 57-year-old Rockhampton man and a 31-year-old man from Nerang have now also been charged.

The older man is due to face Rockhampton Magistrates Court on 3 March charged with one count of money laundering.

“It will be alleged the money laundering involved proceeds of serious criminal offences being paid for legal services undertaken by the firm,” the Crime and Corruption Commission said in a statement on Wednesday.

The younger man has been charged with two counts of supplying a dangerous drug and is due to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on 17 March.

“As the investigation remains ongoing, and these matters are now before the court, the CCC will not be commenting further,” the CCC said.
