Update: Investigation into vessel entering Queensland
The Queensland Police Service (QPS) has issued a 64-year-old man with a Notice to Appear (NTA) in court following investigations into a vessel which travelled from Victoria to Queensland last month.
The manager of the vessel was today issued with the NTA with police alleging the man breached the Public Health Act by providing false information to an emergency officer.
The vessel arrived at Coomera with seven people on board on August 25 after having previously travelled from New South Wales and Victoria.
The man is due to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on September 11.
A penalty infringement notice previously issued to the man has since been withdrawn.
The matter is also being investigated by New South Wales Police Force.
