Search warrants executed over CTP insurance fraud, NSW

Police have executed two search warrants at professional health premises as part of a continuing investigation into the alleged defrauding of the Compulsory Third Party (CTP) insurance scheme, NSW Police say.

In August 2016, detectives from the State Crime Command’s Fraud and Cybercrime Squad established Strike Force Ravens to investigate syndicates targeting the CTP insurance scheme following recommendations of the CTP Task Force.

The CTP Task Force is a NSW Government initiative coordinated by the State Insurance Regulatory Authority (SIRA), involving representatives from various government agencies and legal, health, and insurance sectors.

As part of ongoing investigations, Strike Force Ravens detectives simultaneously executed two search warrants in Auburn and Bankstown yesterday.

At 10.15am today SF Ravens detectives executed a search warrant at a professional health premises on Kitchener Parade, Bankstown and seized documents and computers.

At the same time, SF Ravens detectives executed a search warrant at a professional health premises on Queen Street, Auburn and seized documents and computers.

To date, Strike Raven investigators have arrested five people and laid 69 charges in relation to a combined fraud of $6.2 million.

Police are urging anyone with information in relation to CTP Green Slip fraud to call Crime Stoppers.
