01/375 Roger Rogerson convicted on ASIC charges

Monday 22 October 2001
Former NSW detective Roger Caleb Rogerson today pleaded guilty to two charges of managing a corporation while disqualified, which were brought by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).
Mr Rogerson appeared in the Downing Centre Local Court and the matter was prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions.
ASIC laid charges in relation to Mr Rogerson's role in the management of two corporations, Re-Con Holdings Pty Ltd (also known as Re-Con Scaffolding) and Scafco Scaffolding Pty Ltd (also known as Ramcon Holdings Pty Ltd).
Mr Rogerson pleaded guilty to managing the two companies within five years of his release from prison following a conviction of conspiring to pervert the course of justice.
Mr Rogerson was released from prison on 15 December 1995 and later became a director of the two companies whose principal business activity was in the scaffolding industry.
Mr Rogerson was convicted and required to enter a two-year good behaviour bond.
As a result of this latest conviction, Mr Rogerson is prohibited from being involved in the management of a corporation for a further five years.
The Corporations Law prohibits persons who have been convicted of, or imprisoned in relation to, offences of serious fraud or dishonesty from being involved in the management of companies.
