Opposition leader visits Gladstone again

OPPOSITION leader Annastacia Palaszczuk has made another visit to Gladstone today to support candidate Glenn Butcher.

In Gladstone to attend a rally against the privatisation of the port, Ms Palaszczuk said Labor's focus would turn away from bikies and into the broader realm of organised crime.

She announced Labor would establish a Commission of Inquiry, with the power of a Royal Commission, to investigate organised crime in Queensland if it won office on Saturday.

Labor believes the VLAD legislation is unnecessary because of the 1700 organised crime charges laid, 80 have been laid under VLAD and no convictions have resulted.

Labor has also promised a new criminal offence, Serious Organised Crime, which would carry a maximum life sentence, based on police advice.
