A HIGH-profile barrister claims the $50,000 found on outgoing Ipswich Mayor Paul Pisasale by federal police at a Melbourne airport was for a client of his.
The sensational claim comes a day after Mr Pisasale resigned as mayor after 13 years citing ill health and two days after his home and office were raided by police.
Brisbane barrister Sam Di Carlo told The Courier-Mail the money was for a settlement agreement for a Chinese client and that Mr Pisasale was acting as a friend by agreeing to carry it to Brisbane
