CHARGES have been laid against former Perth city councillor Jim Adamos.
Police from the WA Financial Crimes Division laid the charges just three days after City of Perth inquiry commissioner Tony Power gave his summation before heading off to prepare his final report.
Two charges against Mr Adamos allege that in August 2017, “through a sham lease at a property in East Perth, the man enabled electors to be enrolled that were not eligible to vote in a City of Perth Council election”.
Mr Adamos is also facing three charges of making false claims for allowances between September 2015 and March 2017.
He’s due to face Perth magistrates court July 13.
The City of Perth inquiry referred 23 people including council members and senior administration members to state and federal authorities. Four former councillors and two staff were reportedly under investigation within a day of the inquiry closing.
