Independent Member for Narrunga, Fraser Ellis, yesterday appeared before the Magistrates Court in Adelaide to face charges following an ICAC investigation into regional travel allowances.

Mr Ellis was put on a $1000 bail agreement, and is expected to return to court in May this year.

The Independent Commissioner Against Corruption alleges Mr Ellis made fraudulent claims for the country members accommodation allowance, totalling $18,000.

The former Liberal Member suspended his party membership in February following the news he would be charged with 23 deception charges.
