In an awkward twist in Labor’s private email saga, Premier Palaszczuk has been caught at odds with Crime and Corruption investigators.
The Crime and Corruption watchdog has dramatically released some of the Premier’s private emails while Annastacia Palaszczuk was refusing to do so.
The Triple-C has also revealed several other senior government ministers, including Deputy Premier Steven Miles, was also conversing with other ministers on private emails.
The Crime and Corruption Commission has previously said conducting government business on private email accounts is a corruption risk.
“These revelations are deeply concerning for honest Queenslanders,” said Queensland’s Shadow Integrity Minister Fiona Simpson.
“At first, we thought this was dodgy, now it’s a cover up that runs deep into the heart of the Labor government.
“The fact the boss of the Crime and Corruption watchdog has exposed senior government ministers like this proves this matters.
“A dark integrity cloud now hangs over Premier Palaszczuk and her Labor leadership team.
“While Premier Palaszczuk was chastising her Transport Minister and berating Jackie Trad she was doing the exact same thing. So was her deputy Steven Miles.
“This is the very definition of conducting government business in the dark which Crime and Corruption investigators say leads to corruption.
“Premier Palaszczuk and her Labor leadership team must be honest about this. Why have they betrayed the trust of honest Queenslanders so badly?”
