Disgraced former NSW detective Roger Rogerson was today arrested and charged in South Australia with an attempt to pervert the course of justice, sources said.
The Anti-Corruption Branch of the South Australian police are understood to have arrested and charged the former NSW police officer a short time ago.
Further details were expected from South Australian police later today.
Rogerson is currently awaiting a sentence after pleading guilty in the NSW District Court to giving false evidence to a Police Integrity Commission hearing on May 25, 1999.
His wife, Anne Melocco, pleaded guilty to the same charge.
