Ex Victorian government contractor exposed as nazi

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.”
