Girlfriend of sacked Border Force boss Roman Quaedvlieg resigns

The girlfriend of fired Border Force Commissioner Roman Quaedvlieg's had her letter of resignation accepted on Thursday, more than two months after sending it.

Quaedvlieg, 53, was found to have secured Sarah Rogers, believed to be in her 20s, a job in December 2016 just months after they started a relationship.

Ms Rogers worked as a passport scanner for the Australian Border Force at Sydney Airport and was understood to have pre-empted her own dismissal.
