WA detectives investigate Clive Palmer

WA Premier Colin Barnett is keeping an arm's distance from news that WA detectives are set to investigate mining magnate and Palmer United Party leader, Clive Palmer.  

Mr Barnett's office said he had nothing further to add now that it was a police matter.   

WA Police Deputy Commissioner Stephen Brown confirmed on Monday that detectives were investigating allegations of fraud against Mr Palmer, but did not specify what they were.  

Mr Brown said police were assessing materials received from Palmer's Chinese business partner, Citic Pacific, to determine whether there had been any criminal activity.  

Billionaire Palmer said there is no truth to allegations he fraudulently siphoned $12 million in Chinese funds to bankroll his party into the 2013 federal election.
