Premier must answer serious questions about Adam Brooks allegations – and disendorse the Braddon candidate

Premier Peter Gutwein has serious questions to answer about disgraced former Braddon MP Adam Brooks, specifically whether he was aware of his alleged firearms offences before he welcomed him as a candidate for the state election.

Labor campaign spokesperson Sarah Lovell said the Premier needed to tell Tasmanians the truth after it was revealed late yesterday that Mr Brooks will face court for firearms offences.

“Mr Brooks’ reputation for not telling the truth is very well established and dates back to when he acted with incredible deceit by lying to the then-Premier, lying to the Parliament and lying to those Tasmanians who elected him about his on-going role in his mining business while he was the Mining Minister,” Ms Lovell said.

“It was that web of deceit which eventually led to him being forced to quit the Parliament in disgrace.

“What did Mr Brooks disclose to the Premier about these alleged offences before he was endorsed as a candidate?

“If Mr Gutwein was indeed aware of these matters, why did he endorse him?

“Did the Premier, the Minister for Police or any member of the government have any contact with police in relation to Adam Brooks over the past six months before they welcomed him as a candidate?

“Is Mr Gutwein willing today to provide Tasmanians with the truth or will he shroud this serious issue in his trademark secrecy?

“And is Mr Brooks willing to stand before Tasmanians and provide the truth about what lead to him being charged and the full extent of the charges – or will the government’s entrenched culture of secrecy and cover-up take precedence in this extremely concerning matter?

“Labor has already called for Mr Brooks to be sacked last week and now there is ample further evidence to support that call.”
