The Local Government Association of Queensland welcomes the decision to hold a public inquiry into the Crime and Corruption Commission’s handling of the now failed fraud charges against the former Logan councillors.
LGAQ President Mark Jamieson thanked the Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Committee for resolving to inquire into the CCC’s actions.
“Lives, reputations and careers have been ruined and a duly elected council wrongly dismissed,” Mayor Jamieson said.
“The LGAQ has been resolute in its call for an inquiry to ensure this travesty of justice is not swept under the carpet and we thank the PCCC for its decision today.”
Mayor Jamieson said the LGAQ would like input into the terms of reference to be set for the inquiry to ensure it canvasses all necessary issues.
