Government moves to sack Casey Council following corruption allegations

Victorian parliament has voted to sack the City of Casey Council following corruption allegations against some councillors.

The government began the motion on Tuesday.

It passed both houses of parliament.

The council has been dogged by bribery allegations surrounding Sam Aziz and Geoff Ablett over their dealings with a developer.

There have been no findings or charges yet, but the government has acted anyway.

“I’m still shocked,” Cr Rosalie Crestani told Tom Elliott after learning the news.

She said the council had been denied natural justice.

“We’ve all been taken to task for the alleged actions of two,” Cr Crestani said.

Cr Crestani said a council meeting would still go ahead as planned on Tuesday night.
