SA Police have arrested a man today and charged him with murder and attempted murder following a review and additional investigation of the 1994 National Crime Authority (NCA) bombing.

Today's arrest follows a two-and-a-half year investigation by SA Police, the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission and Forensic Science SA, along with a review of the evidence gathered by the Director of Public Prosecutions.

At 9.15am on Wednesday 2 March, 1994 a bomb exploded at the NCA office in the CPS Credit Union Building on Waymouth St, killing Detective Sergeant Geoffrey Bowen and causing injuries to Peter Wallis, a lawyer employed by the NCA.
