South Australian police have formed a taskforce to investigate all of the information provided to the state’s coronavirus contact tracing teams.
The head of the taskforce, Assistant Commissioner Peter Harvey, said it is clear that at least one person had not told the truth.
He said the taskforce was looking at numerous pieces of legislation which may have been breached, including criminal law, the Emergency Management Act or public health acts.
The taskforce was formed a few hours after it was revealed that a man lied about his job at a pizza bar, sparking the unnecessary lockdown of the entire state of South Australia.
There will be 20 detectives on the taskforce.
Premier Steven Marshall has also promised to “throw the book” at the worker.
More to come.
