Extreme CMC reforms undermine democracy in Queensland

April 16, 2014

The radical changes sought by the LNP in the Crime and Misconduct and Other Legislation Amendment Bill 2014 will end a golden era of anti-corruption in Queensland. The reforms will erode the rights of everyday Queenslanders and compromise their ability to hold their Government and police force accountable via our robust and independent Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC). This will create conditions in which corruption has flourished before.
