Assessment of allegations against Campbell Newman finalised — 13.10.2011

The Crime and Misconduct Commission has finalised its assessment of a complaint made against Campbell Newman which alleged he may have failed to disclose certain financial and non-financial interests, as required by legislation, while he was the Lord Mayor of Brisbane.

The CMC has concluded that Mr Newman did not breach any disclosure requirements and, therefore, no further action will be taken in relation to this matter.

The complaint was that on five occasions Mr Newman may have potentially breached the disclosure requirements under the City of Brisbane Act 2010, relevantly the City of Brisbane (Operations) Regulation 2010.

The five potential breaches of the disclosure requirements alleged were possible failures to disclose:

  • an interest in two units located at Port Douglas and held by a company Frome Holdings Pty Ltd
  • an interest in a self managed superannuation fund
  • an interest in property at Leichhardt Street and Downing Street at Spring Hill
  • an interest held by his wife in the company Invictus Solutions Pty Ltd
  • shareholdings of Frank Monsour Family Investments Pt Ltd in Invictus Solutions Pty Ltd

In assessing the complaint, the CMC considered the relevant statutory provisions and information provided to it by the complainant and Mr Newman. The CMC also conducted some other inquiries to obtain additional information, including seeking and obtaining further information from Mr Newman.

The assessment concluded that Mr Newman was not required by law to disclose any interest in relation to the five potential breaches.

Therefore, the CMC does not consider that the matters alleged involve official misconduct and will not conduct an investigation into the allegations.
