"I want to know how that could happen, I want to know where the hole in the system is," Queensland Premiersaid of what was probably the biggest single fraud in the history of the public sector in Queensland.
Ms Bligh was referring to the $16 million money of Queensland Health that went missing and that police believed was transferred to the private account of Joel Barlow, 36, a finance manager in Queensland Health's Community Services branch.
A National manhunt, with $250,000 bounty, was launched to find Barlow, accused of stealing the money, but the manner of fraud how he stole it raised serious questions about the processes within the health department.
An independent audit has been announced and Ms Bligh also wanted to know how the Department's books were signed off by the Auditor-General.
She said no stone would be left unturned to find the suspect.
