Qld law office raided in corruption probe – News Report


A high-profile Brisbane barrister’s office has been raided by Queensland’s corruption watchdog as part of a probe into fraud allegations against another lawyer.

The Crime and Corruption Commission says its officers searched a CBD location on Tuesday as part of an ongoing investigation into solicitor Adam Magill, who is accused of fraud.

The location of the raid was the chambers of high-profile criminal barrister Tony Kimmins, the Courier-Mail reports.

There is no allegation of any criminal offence against Mr Kimmins, who did not comment on the matter when contacted by AAP on Friday.

Mr Magill was charged with aggravated fraud, money laundering and fraudulent falsification of records in October following a lengthy investigation into his firm Lawler Magill.

The investigations are looking into an alleged $340,000 fraud involving Legal Aid Queensland.
