CMC statement on consideration of allegations concerning Scott Driscoll MP — 24.04.2013

As on the public record, the CMC confirmed on 19 March that it was assessing all new relevant information with respect to the conduct of Mr Scott Driscoll MP.

This followed the CMC’s conclusion at assessment phase, based on available information (as provided in November 2012), that the matter then referred by the Department of Communities, Child Safety and Disability Services did not involve official misconduct and therefore fell outside the CMC’s jurisdiction [read previous statement].

The CMC’s most recent assessment of all new relevant information has been finalised. The CMC will not comment on the source of new information.

The CMC has commenced a co-operative misconduct investigation with the Queensland Police Service (QPS) into allegations including official misconduct and fraud which arise from that information.

The CMC takes the position in all matters, whether at assessment or investigation phase, that everyone is entitled to the presumption of innocence and all allegations should be treated as unsubstantiated until a final outcome is reached.

No further comment will be made until the CMC, in collaboration with the QPS, has concluded its inquiries.
