Review of the Crime and Corruption Commission’s activities

Published:

The Chair of the Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Committee, Mr Tim Nicholls MP, has announced a review of the activities of the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC), as required under the Crime and Corruption Act 2001.

“The CCC plays a vital role in combating major crime and corruption in Queensland. The CCC has been granted significant powers to perform this role on behalf of Queenslanders. The CCC is accountable to the people of Queensland and the Parliament through the Parliamentary Committee” Mr Nicholls said.

In undertaking its review, the Committee will examine the CCC’s overall performance over the last five years and consider its jurisdiction, responsibilities, functions and powers.

“We are calling for submissions now and would like to hear from all interested Queenslanders. The Committee intends to hold public hearings in early 2021” Mr Nicholls said.

The Committee will not investigate individual complaints about the CCC as part of the review. Any complaints about the CCC may be made to the Committee, in writing, and will be dealt with in accordance with the Committee’s complaints procedure.

Written submissions are due by 5pm on Monday, 10 August 2020.

Additional information, including the terms of reference for the review and guidelines for making a submission, are available on the Committee’s webpage here.
