Former minister and lawyer face charges — 04.12.2007

The Crime and Misconduct Commission has served former Minister of the Crown Gordon Nuttall with a Notice to Appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court to face a further charge relating to secret commissions.

Mr Nuttall has been charged under section 442B of the Criminal Code with corruptly receiving $60 000 on 12 April 2002.

Lawyer Harold Shand has also been charged with corruptly making the payment to Mr Nuttall and will appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday 7 December 2007.

Mr Nuttall will appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court tomorrow. He is still facing committal proceedings in January next year in relation to payments totalling $299,999.98 he allegedly received from Mr Ken Talbot between October 2002 and September 2005.

Under the Criminal Proceeds Confiscation Act 2002, the CMC has already restrained property registered in Mr Nuttall’s name to recover the alleged $60,000 payment plus interest.
