Miller under fire in parliament
POLICE Minister Jo-Ann Miller was under fire in parliament today after explosive allegations against her reported in today's QT.
As reported, on May 29 last year Ms Miller allegedly encouraged Deputy Mayor Cr Victor Attwood to overthrow the Mayor, made comments about Cr Pisasale's heavily scrutinised mayoral funds and said "there's more to come out yet".
This was when Ms Miller was Deputy Chair of the Parliamentary Crime and Misconduct Committee (PCMC), later known as the PCCC.
Cr Attwood has supported his claims in a sworn affidavit provided to the QT..
Deputy Opposition Leader John-Paul Langbroek asked: "Is the Police Minister asserting that the Deputy Mayor of Ipswich has made a false sworn declaration which would lead him subject to criminal sanction?"
Ms Miller, as she had done earlier in parliament today in question time and as she did to the QT, refuted Cr Attwood's claims.
"I deny the claims. They are untrue," Ms Miller said in parliament.
