SCF Acussed Has Name Suppression Lifted
2012 MEDIA RELEASE Serious Fraud Office
Serious Fraud Office prosecution/SCF
Mr Graeme Brown has taken step today to have the order prohibiting publication of his name lifted. The Court has granted this application.
Speculation and rumour has been rife in Timaru and elsewhere about the 5 defendants and the charges they face.
Mr Brown was a former CFO for South Canterbury Finance, a position he held for about 3½ years before resigning in January 2010.
He faces one allegation of false accounting, which he denies and he will be strongly defending the charge.
There will be no further comment at this stage.
