The commission alleges that Mr Cameron conspired with others to defraud his former employer, CBA, by providing false documents and information in support of home loan applications.

It also alleges that the conspiracy involved approximately 121 loan applications and resulted in the CBA lending approximately $36,420,040.

The trial will be held in the County Court of Victoria on a date to be determined. The next directions hearing is on 26 October 2018.

The maximum penalty for the offence is 15 years’ imprisonment.
