Queensland’s Crime & Corruption Commission has cleared former deputy premier and treasurer Jackie Trad of deliberately trying to intervene in the appointment of a secondary school principal in her electorate. However, the Commission stated her involvement in the appointment process created a "corruption risk". Trad says she feels vindicated by the Commission’s findings, and that the issue had been turned into a "political witchhunt" by the Liberal National Party. Despite being cleared by the Commission, it is believed Trad will remain on the backbench until the state election on 31 October, when she is expected to struggle to hold her seat of South Brisbane against the Greens.
