Premier must sack Jackie Trad: Media statement from LNP Leader Deb Frecklington

22nd July 2019

“The Palaszczuk Labor Government’s integrity crisis is growing by the day.

“The Premier needs to finally show some leadership and immediately sack Jackie Trad.

“The Premier must also release the Integrity Commissioner’s advice, which she received on Friday.

“Jackie Trad’s decision to stand down as head of the Cross River Rail project is further proof of her massive conflict of interest.

“Incredibly, Jackie Trad is backtracking on her promise to sell the undeclared house.

“She is breaking the promise to release the advice and breaking the promise to sell the house.

“Jackie Trad’s decision to refer herself to the CCC is a smokescreen to dodge questions during Estimates.

“It is no coincidence this move came less than 24 hours before Jackie Trad was due to be grilled in Parliament.

“I had already referred Jackie Trad to the CCC four days ago because of this blatant breach of integrity rules.

“Jackie Trad never declared her Woolloongabba property and she should never have bought it in the first place.”
