Former Beattie Minister Gordon Nuttall found guilty ...

See - Courer Mail - Gordon Nuttall found guilty of receiving corrupt payments.

The possible new charges relate to allegations that Nuttall received more than $180,000 in cash from a businessman involved in a Queensland Health-funded, multi-million-dollar project that did not go out to tender.

The $2.1 million waste-water project was awarded just before Nuttall was sacked as health minister in 2005, after he was found to have misled a parliamentary estimates hearing, amid the Dr Jayant Patel scandal, over his knowledge of problems with overseas-trained doctors in Queensland.

Nuttall and several businessmen involved in the project have been questioned by the CMC.
