Two cops facing multiple rape charges lose their pay
THE two Mackay police officers facing rape charges have been suspended without pay.
In accordance with Queensland Police Service policy, the officers were first suspended from official duty on February 6 and called on to submit within 14 days why they should continue to receive remuneration.
Police issued a statement today to say two police officers from the central region had been suspended without remuneration.
The two junior officers, who have been in the police force for less than five years, were earlier this month charged with five counts of rape and one count each of assault with intent to commit rape and deprivation of liberty.
Court proceedings involving the officers are ongoing.
