Domestic violence charges levelled at the former Family and Community Services boss Jim Moore are set to be withdrawn next week, with his alleged victim telling police she would not give evidence against him.
Mr Moore was charged with common assault and intimidation after police were called to a domestic dispute at a Paddington apartment on Friday, June 7 this year.
When he fronted Waverley Local Court on the charges a few days later, he arrived holding hands with his partner and his alleged victim, Cindy Mills.
In a statement to Fairfax Media, Mr Moore said he and his partner Cindy have been advised that her representations to the NSW Police "have been successful and the charges against me have been withdrawn".
"My partner, Cindy and I welcome our vindication about this matter; no one was ever harmed in any way," he said.
"We're pleased that, despite the challenges, we have respected due process and had the matter successfully resolved. We have no further joint comment.
"In addition I hope I have demonstrated the commitment necessary in difficult circumstances to working with legal processes needed to overcoming the scourge of domestic violence that devastates the lives of thousands of NSW women."
Sources have revealed this came after Ms Mills told police she would not give evidence against her partner, and indeed had no complaint about her partner.
However, police are still expected to pursue the imposition of a permanent apprehended violence order.
An interim order has been in place since the incident, but it was amended in June to allow Ms Mills to continue to reside with him.
Mr Moore stood down from the position he has held since December 2011 shortly after the incident was made public, pending the outcome of the court proceedings. However, he formally left the department last month and has been replaced by Michael Coutts-Trotter.
Mr Moore has worked for 28 years in both Commonwealth and New South Wales governments.
The chief executive of the Office of Ageing, Disability and Home Care, Jim Longley, took over the role in the interim.
