Australia: Corrupt former NT government staffer walks free after guilty verdict
18 Jan 2017

The former chief of staff to a Northern Territory government minister won’t spend any time behind bars after being found guilty of corruptly receiving travel kickbacks.

Paul Mossman was convicted of two counts of corruptly receiving a benefit from Latitude Travel’s Xana Kamitsis in 2014 while he was chief of staff to the then Country Liberals minister Bess Price.

Justice Peter Barr sentenced Mossman to a 12-month suspended sentence in the NT supreme court on Tuesday. Mossman was facing a maximum penalty of three years’ imprisonment.
