The Corruption and Crime Commission has announced it will conduct an investigation into whether there has been any misconduct in the relationship between the Director-General of the Department of Health, Dr Neale Fong, and Mr Brian Burke.

Commissioner Roberts-Smith QC said the investigation had been launched following the assessment of a complaint made to the Commission by the Leader of the Opposition, Mr Paul Omodei.

He said the Commission has been conducting an ongoing investigation into the activities of lobbyists including Mr Burke and had material that for legal reasons could not be handed over to Mr Ken Pettit who is also conducting an inquiry into the matter.

"The decision to conduct the investigation is also due to the nature of the complaint against Dr Fong and his seniority.

"It is not possible at this stage to say what form the investigation will take or to give a likely completion date," Mr Roberts-Smith said.
