Australia: School principal suspended for authorizing purchase of wine worth $30,000 on behalf of public officials


School principal in Australia has been suspended for buying wine worth $30,000 on behalf of public officials. The wine was purchased from a merchant who was later to be found the principal’s son between 2007 and 2014.  Mr. Nino Napoli, one of the public officials on whose behalf the wine was purchased admitted that he used Chandler Park Primary School to purchase large amounts of wine on his behalf in order to hide it from others in the department and avoid media scrutiny through Freedom of Information laws. Napoli has been fired for his involvement in a $4 billion scandal in the education sector.
