Current Public Inquiries

Operation Belcarra

The Crime and Corruption Commission will hold a public hearing as part of Operation Belcarra, an investigation into the conduct of candidates involved in the 2016 local government elections for the Gold Coast City Council, Moreton Bay Regional Council and Ipswich City Council.

The purpose of the Inquiry is to gather information about possible criminal offences to support Operation Belcarra and to also canvass broader issues related to corruption and integrity in local government.
