Palaszczuck government denies unethical involvement in casino dismissal

The Palaszczuk government has denied accusations of unethical behaviour after a $600 million eco-resort was dismissed on Friday.

According to the Australian Associated Press (AAP), Keppel MP Brittany Lauga has defended herself against claims she was involved in the application process for Tower Holdings’ casino licence.

The licence would have allowed the company to seek further investments in its proposed eco-resort on Great Keppel Island.

Ms Lauga told AAP: “I was never involved as a consultant in any way, shape or form in Tower’s application for any casino licence.”

She was previously employed by CQG Consulting and worked on the project’s environmental impact statement, which is where the accusations of a conflict of interest arose.
