Tony Fitzgerald has released the findings of his six-month investigation into Queensland’s Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) following allegations of misconduct.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said she received the report this afternoon, which included 32 recommendations to improve the crime and corruption watchdog that was established after the Fitzgerald Inquiry into the 1980s.

The investigation was commissioned following the firing of several Logan advisers who were later exonerated of corruption allegations by the CCC.

“On the face of [the recommendations] there’s nothing here that I can’t see our government implementing,” the premier said of the recommendations.

“CCC must involve public approval, respect and trust.

“I thank them for their work. It was very, very thorough.”

The report will be made public today and will be presented to Cabinet on Monday.
