Picture: Jono Searle/AAP "The CCC has considered the review report obtained by the Department of the Premier and Cabinet (through an external company) with respect to the grant allocation process and how it related to Fortress Capstone Pty Ltd," the CCC said in a statement. "The CCC considers that further enquiries need to be made in relation to the matter. "The CCC does not intend to comment further until it has finished dealing with the matter." Mr Barbagallo left the chief of staff's job last month. Ms Palaszczuk insisted his departure was not related to the integrity saga surrounding the funding. She said Mr Barbagallo had informed her in June, before the revelations came to light. Mr Barbagallo has denied any wrongdoing and says he declared his interest as required and withdrew his involvement in the application process when he joined the Premier's office in 2017.
