Gordon Nuttall super pay investigated by Queensland Treasury

WHAT, if any, superannuation has been paid to disgraced former Labor minister Gordon Nuttall is under investigation by Queensland Treasury.

Nuttall, who was released from prison on Monday, served more than six years of a 14-year prison sentence after being found guilty of corruption and perjury charges, related to payments he received and a loan he arranged before 2009.

On top of his prison sentence, Nuttall's Woodgate holiday home was sold, with the proceeds seized under proceeds of crime legislation. 

A Sandgate home suffered the same fate after Nuttall was fined $82,000 by the Parliament for not declaring payments, found to be corrupt, on his pecuniary interests register.

Following Nuttall's conviction, then-premier Anna Bligh declared taxpayer contributions to his superannuation fund would be recouped.

But Treasurer Curtis Pitt was forced to admit on Thursday that may not have happened.
