Lawyers for Emma Driscoll, the wife of disgraced ex-Queensland MP Scott Driscoll, are yet to receive a full brief of evidence for the charges against her.
Lawyers representing the wife of disgraced former Queensland MP Scott Driscoll are still waiting to receive a full brief of evidence for the perjury and falsifying records charges she’s facing.
Emma Driscoll is charged with 10 counts of making a false entry in a record, three counts of perjury and three counts of knowingly giving an official a document that was false or misleading.
Ms Driscoll didn’t appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court when the case was mentioned on Monday.
Her solicitor, Nick Dore, advised the court case conferencing had been completed, but the matter was yet to be resolved.
“As such, we’re seeking a full brief of evidence in relation to the charges,” he said.
The brief will be supplied on March 10, and reviewed on March 24.
The charges were laid against Ms Driscoll amid a joint police and Crime and Misconduct Commission investigation into her and her husband’s financial dealings.
Former independent MP Scott Driscoll quit the parliament in November after its ethics committee found him guilty of misleading the house about his financial interests and role in the Queensland Retail Traders and Shopkeepers Association.
The committee fined the 38-year-old former member for Redcliffe $90,000 for contempt.
