Second Border Force boss engulfed in relationship scandal

A DECORATED and politically connected Border Force Assistant Commissioner yesterday resigned while facing an investigation into claims of an inappropriate relationship with a female staff member.

Highly experienced Australian Border Force Capability Division Assistant Commissioner Peter Docwra had been on leave before he decided to quit.

The explosive revelations, exclusively revealed today by The Courier-Mail, come as Mr Docwra's boss, Roman Quaedvlieg, remains on leave while investigators probe his alleged relationship with a much younger staff member.

It is understood the investigation into Mr Docwra relates to a relationship with a staff member with whom he had regular contact.

It is likely the probe into Mr Docwra will continue, despite him leaving on his own terms. 

A spokesman for the ­Department of Immigration and Border Force said: "The department does not comment or confirm whether any matter is, or is not, under ­investigation."
