A former Queensland government MP charged with fraud has faced court in Brisbane for the first time.
Former Queensland MP Scott Driscoll has made his first court appearance accused of fraud.
The 39-year-old was charged by the Crime and Corruption Commission with soliciting secret commissions, fraud and falsification of records in early October.
The former Liberal National Party MP stood quietly before magistrate John Costello in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Wednesday where the matter was adjourned until November 24 for further mention.
Driscoll is accused of committing $725,000 worth of fraud offences and soliciting at least $400,000 in secret commissions between August 2011 and May 2013.
The disgraced MP resigned from Queensland parliament in November 2013 after being found guilty by the ethics committee of misleading the House about his financial interests.
The committee also found he had not been honest about his role in the Queensland Retail Traders and Shopkeepers Association.
Driscoll made no indication of his plea and did not answer questions from reporters outside court.
His wife, Emma Driscoll, has also been charged with related perjury and dishonesty offences.
