Public Trustee

This is a story of how a retired electrical trades worker a retired meat worker and a homeless person helped bring down one of the most powerful people in the Queensland Government. That person is Peter Carne, the Public Trustee of Queensland, who controlled billions of dollars in assets of ordinary workers and some private trusts. Carne was the boss of 600 public servants across the state and was characterized in the public press as representing the old guard of the Labour Party. However, he is actually a reformer embracing government engagement with big capital (Adani) and privatisation (Queensland Rail).

In the wake of his suspension his long term deputy Mark Crofton will resign effective from next month. Another long term PTO officer Rob Moran has also resigned.
