The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) acknowledges the Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Committee’s (PCCC) report from its Inquiry into the CCC’s investigation of former councillors of Logan City Council and related matters has been tabled in State Parliament.
The CCC acknowledges that due to the serious nature of the allegations contained in the complaints, it was appropriate for the PCCC to investigate and report publicly to the Parliament.
The CCC will carefully consider the report and its recommendations. The CCC is focussed on ensuring effective processes are in place and supports improving them.
The CCC did have concerns about how some aspects of the Inquiry were conducted. As stated in paragraph 15 of the CCC’s written submissions which were tabled today along with the report, the CCC wrote to the Committee on 6 September 2021. In the interests of transparency, the CCC supports the publication of this letter, the Summary of Opinion of Mr O’Brien AM and the Chronology prepared by the CCC, suitably redacted in recognition of existing matters before the court.
Alan MacSporran QC will continue to lead the CCC, and with the Commissioners and the CCC’s leadership team, looks forward to an ongoing and productive relationship with the PCCC as the CCC continues to independently combat major crime and reduce corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.
