In May 2018, the parliament’s procedures and privileges committee recommended Urban be expelled from the assembly after it found he had misled the house on five occasions. Urban resigned immediately after the tabling of the committee’s report, and his seat was subsequently lost to the Liberal Party. Urban was charged by WA Police with twelve counts of forgery, attempted fraud and false evidence in September 2018.
On 8 May 2018, the committee released its report. The committee found Urban had committed a “gross and aggravated contempt of parliament” and had misled the house on five occasions. It also found that Urban had breached the trust of his constituents and his colleagues by representing himself as someone he was not. The committee recommended that Urban be expelled from the Legislative Assembly, concluding that Urban’s continued presence in the legislature was not “appropriate or tenable.” On the day the report was due to be released, ABC News reported that Urban planned to resign from Parliament. Minutes after the report was tabled, Urban resigned rather than face all-but-certain expulsion. A by-election for Darling Range was held on 23 June, with the Liberal candidate Alyssa Hayden winning the seat.
On 21 September 2018, Urban was arrested by the Western Australia Police major fraud squad and charged with twelve offences, including forgery and attempted fraud over applications he made to WA Police, and five false evidence charges relating to information given to the parliamentary committee.
In November 2017, Urban was asked to explain why he wore an Australian Police Overseas Service Medal to commemoration services, despite not having served overseas for an Australian police force. Urban claimed that he was awarded a medal by British police for his work as a war crimes investigator in Bosnia-Herzegovina in the late 1990s, but that he had somehow been sent the wrong medal by authorities in the UK. A day later, he issued a statement saying that he had ordered a commemorative International Police Service Medal from a military supply store because he felt he was entitled to one, but had received a POSM in error. In addition, the University of Leeds stated that it had no record of Urban attending the institution, or completing a Bachelor of Arts in health and physical education there, as he had claimed. His claims to have completed a certificate of higher education in policing at the University of Portsmouth, and a diploma of local government in Western Australia, were also questioned, and later found to be false.
On 29 November 2017, Urban announced his resignation from the Labor Party. The following day, after addressing parliament, Urban was referred to the procedures and privileges committee.
Urban first contested Darling Range for Labor at the 2013 state election, but was heavily defeated by incumbent Tony Simpson, winning only 34.7 percent of the two-party vote. Urban was again pre-selected to contest the electorate at the 2017 state election, this time defeating Simpson, achieving an 18.9% two-party preferred swing amid the Liberals’ meltdown in Perth. He was the first Labor member ever to win Darling Range; for most of its existence, the seat had been considered Liberal heartland.
Urban was born in Ashington, Northumberland in England and joined the British Army after leaving school. He claims to have served in Northern Ireland, Cyprus and Namibia and, in 1989, joined the police. He claimed to have worked as a detective, and later as a war crimes investigator in Bosnia but none of this was able to be verified when requested, and was removed from his parliamentary biography following the medal scandal. He relocated to Western Australia around 2000 and worked in the construction industry until joining the Western Australia Police in 2005. He also served on Serpentine-Jarrahdale Shire Council.
Barry Urban (born 10 December 1968) is a former Australian politician. He was a member of the Western Australian Legislative Assembly representing Darling Range from March 2017 until his resignation in May 2018. Urban was elected as a member of the Labor Party but resigned from the party and sat as an independent from November 2017, after a series of scandals involving false claims of his credentials including his educational qualifications and his wearing of a police overseas service medal to which he had no entitlement.
