CMC clears Campbell Newman
THE Crime and Misconduct Commission has cleared LNP leader Campbell Newman of any wrong doing following a complaint by Deputy Premier Andrew Fraser.
Mr Fraser had asked the state corruption watchdog to investigate Mr Newman's pecuniary interest declarations during his time as lord mayor of Brisbane.
The complaint was lodged with the CMC that Mr Newman may have breached disclosure requirements under the City of Brisbane Act 2010, by possibly failing to disclose interests in two units at Port Douglas held by Frome Holdings Pty Ltd, a self-managed super fund, and a Spring Hill property.
Complaints were also lodged regarding an interest his wife held in the company Invictus Solutions, and his supposed failure to disclose his shareholdings of Frank Monsour Family Investments.
"In assessing the complaint, the CMC considered the relevant statutory provisions and information provided to it by the complainant and Mr Newman," a CMC spokeswoman said in a statement issued this afternoon."
