Nutall makes payment towards contempt fine

CORRUPT former Labor minister Gordon Nuttall has paid $16,000 toward his $82,000 fine for being in contempt of Queensland Parliament.

Nuttall, who was found guilty of contempt for failing to disclose $360,000 in secret commissions, was ordered to pay the fine within 12 months but when May, 2012, arrived, he had not paid up.

Queensland Parliament heard on Tuesday that the Public Trustee, acting on behalf of the jailed former minister, had paid $16,000.

The trustee advised that once settlement of other assets had occurred, further payments would be considered.

Nuttall was sentenced to 12 years in jail for accepting the secret commissions and perjury.
