CCC decides not to investigate $91,000 Sibelco sandmining ads

No investigation of Sibelco

Tony Moore reports in the Brisbane Times (18.11.14) that the Queensland government’s new corruption body has told Stradbroke Island people it will not investigate $91,000 of sandmining company advertising in the Ashgrove electorate in the 2012 state election.’

A CCC spokeswoman ruled that seven questions Fairfax Media forwarded in writing to the CCC did not meet the watchdog’s “media policy”. It declined to answer why the issue would not be investigated and suggested Fairfax Media run answers provided to another media outlet. “The CCC will not confirm or deny whether it has received any other complaints or referrals relating to this issue,” the blanket statement to another media group said.
