Media Statement: Mr Peter Slipper MP summonsed in relation to AFP investigation
Release Date: Monday, January 07 2013, 03:21 PM
The AFP has today (7 January 2013) served the legal representative of Mr Peter Slipper MP with a summons in relation to three offences of Dishonestly Causing a Risk of a Loss to the Commonwealth pursuant to section 135.1(5) Criminal Code Act 1995 (Cth).
Mr Slipper MP has been summonsed to appear in the Canberra Magistrates Court on 15 February 2013.
Could throw a cat among the pigeons. If Slippery Pete is found guilty of criminal offences, he will have to resign from Parliament.
But I guess this sort of thing can be strung out by magistrates.
