Ex MP Scott Driscoll charged with fraud

Former Redcliffe MP Scott Driscoll has been charged with 16 offences, including fraud and soliciting secret commissions.  

The Crime and Corruption Commission will allege his fraud offences involved $725,000, and he solicited at least $400,000 in secret commissions from two entities between August 2011 and May 2013.  

However the CCC will not allege Mr Driscoll ever received the secret commissions.  

The CCC said it would move ahead with two counts of solicitation of secret commissions, five counts of fraud and nine counts of fraudulent falsification of records.  

The 39-year-old will face Brisbane Magistrates Court on October 23.
