The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) was advised by the Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Committee (PCCC) on 28 May 2021 that it has resolved to investigate the issues and complaints raised by the Local Government Association of Queensland (LGAQ). The PCCC also advised it would inquire into and report on a range of other matters as part of the inquiry.
The CCC respects the independent oversight of its activities by the PCCC and the role of the Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Commissioner. The PCCC is responsible for monitoring and reviewing the CCC’s performance. Consistent with routine reporting of its activities and performance to the PCCC in both public and private meetings, the CCC supports the oversight of its work including its decision to call this Inquiry in response to a complaint from the LGAQ.
While the CCC understands the interest of the public and the media into these matters, the CCC has determined it is not appropriate to comment or respond publicly to the LGAQ’s complaint and other matters covered in the terms of reference which will be considered by the inquiry.
The CCC will provide responses to the matters raised in the complaint and the terms of reference during the proceedings of the inquiry. That is the appropriate course of action.
PCCC Chair, Jon Krauss MP, has asked that all persons respect the committee’s processes and confidentiality of committee proceedings. Similarly, the CCC asks the public and media to respect the PCCC’s processes and the limitations on the CCC from commenting publicly on these matters outside of the inquiry’s proceedings.
In terms of the broader five-yearly review of the CCC’s activities being conducted by the PCCC, the CCC has provided submissions and other evidence to this inquiry. The CCC’s submissions and transcripts from the hearings are available from the PCCC’s website.
