Lawyer charged over alleged second bail breach

HIGH-profile Brisbane lawyer Adam Magill has been charged with breaching bail for a second time.

The former cop was charged with fraud offences last year after an 18-month investigation by Queensland's corruption watchdog into Brisbane law firm Lawler Magill.

The Crime and Corruption Commission has now alleged Magill breached his bail but did not provide details.

"The CCC has today issued a Notice to Appear in court to a 47-year-old Tarragindi man for allegedly breaching the conditions of bail," it said in a statement.

"The man has been previously charged by the CCC as part of Operation Stockade.

"As this matter and previous charges are before the court, it is not appropriate for the CCC to comment further."

As a result of Operation Stockade, Magill is facing charges of aggravated fraud, fraudulent falsification of records and aggravated money laundering.

He vehemently denies the allegations.

Magill was previously charged with breaching his bail when he allegedly called a barrister he was not allowed to contact while on bail. The barrister happened to be with a CCC police officer at the time.

He plans to contest the charge.

Magill is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on March 22.
