Corrupt former ACC property manager gets home detention
A former ACC national property manager who admitted taking a bribe has been sentenced to 11 months home detention following SFO corruption charges.
Malcolm David Mason, 50, was sentenced today to 11 months home detention in relation to two Crimes Act and one Secret Commissions Act charges brought by the Serious Fraud Office (SFO).
Mr Mason had previously admitted corruptly receiving a payment of $160,000 from a property developer in return for using his position at the ACC to ensure the involvement of a developer known to him in the construction and leasing of a new ACC branch office.
Mr Mason also admitted corruptly receiving a gift to the value of $9,000, in the form of a business class trip to the 2008 Singapore Grand Prix, from a real estate agent in return for involving him in securing a long-term lease for another ACC building.
In addition to receiving the payment and the gift, Mr Mason also admitted passing a confidential document listing all Government Departmental Security Officers to an associate involved in the business of installing security systems.
Comments and questions
Is this Malcolm Davis Mason’s ‘first strike’?
ACT’/National’s ‘three strikes and out’ legislation doesn’t apply to ‘white collar’ criminals.
