MEDIA RELEASE: GUFC confirms charges have been laid
Gungahlin United Football Club is pleased to confirm that the ACT Policing (AFP) today laid fraud charges against a previous GUFC official. The matter is scheduled to appear in court today.
The GUFC Executive and club volunteers initiated the investigation in early 2018 after identifying several red flags. This activity resulted in the Club lodging a formal report with ACT Policing and for past 18 months Club officials have been assisting police with their investigation.
As this is an ongoing matter to ensure the integrity of the case, GUFC is unable to comment further at this time. We would like to stress however, that the charges are against an individual and not the Club.
We would like to commend the leadership shown by several individuals within the club who raised concerns and who have spent considerable time pursuing this case on behalf of all members.
Be assured it will be football as usual for GUFC while the case continues.
