News : 'Irish Boys' Behind Alleged Bogus Software Call Centre Face Gold Coast Court
Gold Coast, Australia, Sept 15, 2015 -- Three members of the so-called "Irish Boys" who allegedly operated call centres selling bogus computer software are trying to vary their bail conditions so they can contact each other.
The case against the alleged criminal syndicate was mentioned in the Southport Magistrates Court on Queensland's Gold Coast.
Authorities allege the 'Irish Boys' defrauded just over $4 million from more than 150 victims over an 18-month period.
Last month the Crime and Corruption Commission and Queensland Police Service said the group ran a sophisticated syndicate that was selling fraudulent computer software and managed investment schemes.
Brothers Aaron and Daniel East, and their partners Neil McKenny, Steifan Ceitinn (also known as Steve Keating) and Chloe Rose Podger were charged with fraud after raids on call centres last month.
During a mention in a Southport Court today, Chief Magistrate Chris Callaghan ordered police to disclose their brief of evidence to the defendants by December 15.
The case will be back in court on February 2.
Tomorrow, the East brothers and McKenny will be back in court seeking to vary a bail condition which prevents them from contacting each other.
Police are not expected to contest the application.
McKenny is also facing separate charges including possession of a sum of money.
That case will be mentioned at a summary call on October 13.
