A former Australian Federal Police deputy commissioner has pleaded not guilty to allegations he unlawfully possessed a prohibited firearm and abused his position of public office.
Ramzi Jabbour's case was briefly in the ACT Magistrates Court on Thursday where his lawyer Michael Kukulies-Smith entered pleas of not guilty to both charges on behalf of his client.
The charges relate to the alleged possession of a prohibited police gun and the discussion of a child's homework.
Mr Jabbour, who was embroiled in the Mohamed Haneef scandal a decade ago, worked for the federal police for almost 30 years.
He was appointed as deputy commissioner of capability in September 2015 for a five-year term after holding a range of senior posts.
He resigned in August this year after an internal professional standards investigation.
The former officer was not present in court.
The case returns to court in January.
