CCC's 2017-18 Annual Report tabled in Parliament - 2 October 2018

The Crime and Corruption Commission’s (CCC) 2017-18 Annual Report has been tabled in Parliament.

In the 2017-18 financial year, CCC investigations resulted in 60 people being charged with more than 300 criminal offences, and assets totalling $9.4M which were identified as the proceeds of crime were forfeited to the State.

Significant crime investigations targeted ice and other illicit drugs, the activities of outlaw motorcycle gangs and suspected criminal activity within the legal profession.

Investigations into corruption focused on excessive use of force, misuse of confidential information and fraud. The CCC received 3098 complaints which contained 8862 allegations of corruption.

The CCC used its hearings powers to examine 373 witnesses over 322 days of hearings to progress major crime and corruption investigations, and to obtain vital intelligence which assists law enforcement target criminal syndicates in Queensland.

The agency’s anti-corruption and prevention efforts were concentrated on local government, correctional facilities and the reform of the police discipline system.

The CCC tabled its report in Parliament in October 2017 following Operation Belcarra and provided 31 recommendations to improve equity, transparency, integrity and accountability in local government. Taskforce Flaxton commenced in May 2018 to examine corruption and corruption risks in correctional facilities.

In October 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed by representatives of the CCC, Queensland Government, the State Opposition, the Queensland Police Service and police unions to progress major reforms to the police discipline system.

Corruption prevention continued to be a flagship program, raising public sector awareness of corruption risks via public hearings, reports, publications and recommendations for legislative change.

CCC Chairperson Alan MacSporran QC said the 2017-18 Annual Report highlights the diverse work of the CCC and how it uses its powers to combat major crime and reduce corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.

“The CCC is committed to delivering our important work so Queenslanders have safer communities supported by fair and ethical public institutions,” Mr MacSporran said.

“The annual report provides a transparent account of the breadth of our work and demonstrates how the CCC has focused its resources to tackle crime and corruption in this State.”
