Slow CCC probe angers Gold Coast mayor

Sonia Kohlbacher

Gold Coast Mayor Tom Tate has told the state's corruption watchdog it is taking too long to investigate allegations against some councillors, including himself.

The Crime and Corruption Commissioner is investigating whether Mr Tate deliberately misled other councillors ahead of a vote on a property sale, and the disclosure of racehorses owned by him and Deputy Mayor Donna Gates.

"The judicial maxim states: justice delayed is justice denied," he wrote to CCC chair Alan MacSporran this week in a letter obtained by NewsCorp.
