Police Minister Jo-Ann Miller referred to CCC

QUEENSLAND Shadow Police Minister Jarrod Bleijie has written to the Police Commissioner and acting Chair of the Crime and Corruption Committee over Police Minister Jo-Ann Miller's phone call to a whistleblower.

Ms Miller admitted in Parliament she called Bruce McLean, who has gone public with allegations relating to Labor MP Rick Williams, "instinctively" wanting to check if her "long term friend" was OK.

"Sometimes my care for people is so strong and overwhelming, that I act to offer my support to them instinctively," Ms Miller said.

"As the local member, this was the right thing to do. Upon reflection as police minister, and understanding any issues of perception, I would not have made that call.

"However, I stress that as police minister, I never have and never will interfere with operational police matters. That is my duty and that is my word."
