LNP law change to help donor would be investigated by ICAC

Mark Solomons and Mark Willacy report in the ABC News (301.15) that a retrospective law change by the Newman Government in Queensland ‘that helped a major Liberal National Party donor avoid prosecution would have been investigated in New South Wales, says the former head of that state’s anti-corruption body.

‘David Ipp, the commissioner of the NSW Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) until his retirement in 2013, told the ABC it was “odd” that there had been no probe by Queensland authorities into a last-minute change to river quarrying laws that appeared to favour Karreman Quarries, a significant LNP donor.’
