Palmer narrowly avoids legal action

THERE are reports from The Courier Mail that Clive Palmer has narrowly avoided legal action in relation to environmental offences.

Records indicate Mr Palmer resigned as a director of his company Queensland Nickel just prior to it having potentially breached environmental laws.

The Environment Department is investigating suspected environmental breaches from April, claiming the company failed to stop toxic water from spilling off its site.


The resignation could save Mr Palmer from being held personally responsible for any action taken by the department.

The Courier-Mail revealed yesterday that the department was investigating if the incident could amount to charges.

The Environment Department are also subject to legal action from Queensland Nickel.
