ABC News (Australia) published this video item, entitled “Head of Queensland Crime and Corruption Commission under pressure to resign | 7.30” – below is their description.

As state and federal politicians debate the role and powers of anti-corruption bodies, there’s been a remarkable development in Queensland this week.

The head of the state’s Crime and Corruption Commission is under pressure to resign, after counsel assisting a parliamentary inquiry submitted he had at times failed to act impartially and fairly. The controversy relates to the Commission’s failed attempt to prosecute eight local councillors over the sacking of a whistleblower. Michael Atkin and Peter McCutcheon have the story.
