A neo-Nazi was helping update the Andrews government’s computer systems before his shocking affiliations were revealed.
The Herald Sun can reveal IT guru and Nazi sympathiser Tyrel Cameron worked for a consultant to the Department of Premier and Cabinet until November last year.
But it was unknown to the government or the tech company he represented that Mr Cameron was a core member of Australia’s largest white supremacist group, the National Socialists Network.
A digital audit was ordered after Mr Cameron’s ultra right-wing affiliation was exposed. But the government did not ask Victoria Police to investigate.
A DPC spokesperson said Mr Cameron did not work on sensitive files or have access to personal data.
“The department is aware that an IT consultant with alleged far-right political affiliations was formerly employed by a company contracted to provide services to the Victorian government,” the spokesperson said.
“While the contractor’s alleged political affiliations are of grave concern, the department has found no evidence of unlawful or malicious behaviour in relation to the work he undertook for the department.”
