Australia: QGC Welcomes Dismissal of Misconduct Complaints
QGC, developer of the Queensland Curtis LNG Project, welcomed the Queensland Crime and Misconduct Commission’s dismissal complaints relating to major project approvals.
Managing Director Derek Fisher said the complaints had unfairly cast a pall over good, honest people who had been involved in approvals for the QCLNG Project.
“We welcome the commission’s findings, which we can now put behind us and get on with delivering a first-class, world-first industry for Queensland,” he said.
Fisher said QGC had always believed the complaints were baseless.
“We would hope that people who make these complaints in future think seriously before publicly risking people’s reputations,” Fisher said.
“It is also gratifying that someone of the stature of Mr Stanley Jones AO QC has found that there was no breach of environmental protection laws in the granting of the project approvals. Mr Jones is an expert in environmental law and a former Supreme Court Judge.
“We trust the commission’s findings will restore public confidence in Queensland’s approvals process, which is one of the most rigorous in the world.”
