TWO Mackay police officers charged with the alleged rape of a woman while on duty have been suspended without pay.

The officers, a 29-year-old constable and a 28-year-old first year constable were first suspended from official duty on February 6 and called on to submit within 14 days why they should continue to receive remuneration.

At the end of this 14-day period - last Friday, the officers were suspended without remuneration.

It is believed at least one of the officers applied to remain on the payroll.

The men have been charged with five counts of rape and one count each of assault with intent to commit rape and deprivation of liberty, after an alleged incident on February 2.

Both were released on bail, which was not opposed by the prosecution.
