Chief Scientist On Fraud Charge

Queensland chief scientist Professor Suzanne Miller has stood aside after being charged with fraud by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC).

Court documents lodged by the CCC allege that between February 1 2014 and July 24 2017, Miller gained approximately $45,000, using private health insurance at the Queensland Museum.

Miller, who is entitled to the presumption of innocence, is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on August 8.

She was appointed to the role of chief scientist in December 2016. Science Minister Leeanne Enoch yesterday praised her role in that position. “She has been incredibly successful in terms of putting science front and centre, not just in Queensland but in Australia,” Enoch said.
