A former NSW Police officer is facing charges of perjury in connection to the sexual assault court proceedings involving NRL star Jack de Belin. The charges against de Belin and his co-accused were ultimately dropped by the Director of Public Prosecutions after two District Court trials ended in hung juries.

The former Detective Senior Constable is alleged to have provided false evidence under oath during the case that occurred in the Wollongong District Court back in February 2020. Despite the charges brought against de Belin and his co-accused, both individuals consistently maintained their innocence and pleaded not guilty throughout the proceedings.

Following the decision to drop the charges, an investigation was launched by the NSW Police Professional Standards Command under Strike Force Ephemeris to look into the conduct of officers involved in the case. Subsequently, after advice from the Director of Public Prosecution, a 48-year-old former Detective Senior Constable was charged with perjury and is scheduled to appear in Wollongong Local Court on June 19.

As investigations under Strike Force Ephemeris continue, this development sheds light on the complexities surrounding high-profile cases and the importance of upholding integrity and truthfulness in legal proceedings.
