QPS and CMC complete joint investigation into complaint relating to Sunshine Coast Council election — 23.07.2012

The Queensland Police Service (QPS) and the Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) have concluded a joint investigation into an allegation of official misconduct relating to the most recent local government election for the Sunshine Coast Regional Council.

As is on the public record, the QPS and the CMC have been jointly investigating two separate matters involving allegations of official misconduct ahead of the council election.

One of these joint investigations related to Mr Mal Brough.

That investigation has concluded that there is insufficient evidence to warrant any action against Mr Brough.

That matter is now closed.  (There are no other outstanding investigations relating to Mr Brough).

The joint investigation into the separate allegation is continuing. As this matter is ongoing, it is not appropriate to comment further.

In all matters it is important to note that all parties are afforded the presumption of innocence and all allegations are treated as unsubstantiated until a final outcome is reached.
