Financial Crime Squad detectives have charged 60-year-old Aberfieldie man, Phil Egan today as part of an investigation into allegations of fraud relating to management of a Robinvale-based organisation.

The man was charged on summons today with 73 offences including 32 counts of obtaining financial advantage by deception, 33 counts of using false documents and 8 counts of using a secret commission.

Mr Egan will appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on August 11.

The Herald Sun reported in December last year that police were investigating Mr Egan amid claims he fraudulently stole hundreds of thousands of dollars from Murray Valley Aboriginal Cooperative.

The charges relate to alleged fraud matters between 2010 and 2015.

Egan played 125 games for Richmond from 1982 to 1990, and one game for Melbourne in 1991.

Egan was the author of the 2022 external report on Hawthorn Football Club historical racism allegations.
