Policewoman loses job for digging through official database for dirt on husband
A former police officer that sought information on her ex-husband's finances from Australian Federal Police databases has failed to overturn her dismissal from the force.
The woman - who joined the AFP in June 2005 as a finance analyst before being promoted to an investigations role - had been embroiled in legal action over her divorce from Mr B, according to a Fair Work Australia decision.
She "believed Mr B to be a person who evaded paying both an appropriate level of child support and taxation", and discussed her views "on a number of occasions" with a colleague. Twice in early 2007, the woman received emails relating to her ex-husband from the colleague, which she forwarded externally to her mother - also a party in the family law proceedings.
