Queensland Police charge 55-year-old man with string of domestic violence offences

A man living overseas has been deported back to Australia, where he faces 67 charges related to domestic violence dating back almost a decade.

Philippine police detained the 55-year-old man on local charges before he was deported back to Brisbane on May 9, where he was arrested by Queensland police at customs.

A man has been charged with a number of serious domestic violence offenses allegedly committed on the Gold Coast between 2016 and 2017, including multiple counts of breaching domestic violence orders (DVOs), using a vehicle to threaten, harass or cause offence, unlawful stalking and bail violations.

Police will argue in court that the allegations spanned several years and involved multiple victims.

Detective Inspector Paul Fletcher said tireless efforts by the QPS and AFP led to the man’s arrest.

“This operation demonstrates our unwavering commitment to bring perpetrators to justice and protect our community,” he said.

“His arrest brings a significant level of security and reassurance to the victims involved. Our focus now is to ensure that he faces the full force of the law and that justice is served.

“This arrest highlights the critical importance of interagency cooperation.

“All the dedication and hard work of all the officers has ensured that a dangerous individual is unable to harm his victims again and we will continue to work diligently to keep our community safe and secure.”

Inspector Fletcher said the community should be reassured that the police are determined to “help and protect those affected by domestic violence”.

“Coinciding with Domestic Violence Prevention Month, this arrest demonstrates a commitment to taking decisive action against perpetrators of domestic violence and supporting victims,” ​​he said.

The man was refused bail by police and will appear in court in Brisbane on June 10.
