Abstract

[Extract] Queensland's Crime and Misconduct Commission ('CMC'), like the Criminal Justice Commission before it, was established to help restore confidence in Queensland's public institutions after the 1987–89 Fitzgerald Inquiry.

The CMC is the subject of two recent reviews. The first, undertaken by former High Court Judge Ian Callinan QC, has made 17 recommendations. Public release of the full report awaits Crown Law advice. According to Premier Newman, the CMC is 'threatening legal action' if the full report is released.
