Acting Defence Secretary referred

The Acting Secretary for Defence, Trevor Meauri, has been referred to the Public Prosecutor on allegations of misconduct in office.

The Ombudsman Commission referred Mr Meauri today following an investigation over the allegations.
However, a statement from the Ombudsman Commission did not specify the nature of the allegations against Mr Meauri.
In the signed statement, both the Chief Ombudsman, Michael Dick, and Ombudsman Richard Pagen, say they've given Mr Meauri the right to be heard, which he's responded to.

They say after deliberating on the matter, they've found there is evidence enough (prima facie case) to refer Mr Meauri.
Mr Meauri has been notified of the Commission's intention to refer him to the Public Prosecutor, Pondros Kaluwin.
Mr Kaluwin will have a look at the evidence and decide whether or not to refer Mr Meauri to a Leadership Tribunal.
