Robinson charges to be changed

Extract from Australian Broadcasting Corporation - ABC Online, on 21 July 2003


Queensland's Director of Public Prosecutions has confirmed that charges against the former deputy chairman of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission (ATSIC), Ray Robinson will be amended.

Robinson appeared briefly in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today on forgery charges, but the matter was adjourned until later this week.

Outside the court, Robinson's lawyer Terry O'Gorman indicated the forgery charges against his client could be dropped and replaced with new criminal charges.

Robinson says he is not worried.

"I don't know what the new charges are but just let me say this - I have nothing to hide, I'm innocent of all these false allegations that are made against me," he said.

Robinson has pleaded not guilty to forging cheques from the account of Brisbane's Indigenous Housing and Construction Company.

The charges against Mr Robinson arise from two cheques he is accused of forging for $4,800 in Brisbane last year.
