QUEENSLAND'S crime watchdog has grilled a man whose $50,000 was confiscated from former Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale at Melbourne Airport.

Crime and Corruption Commission investigators and police officers pounced on Hui Tian when he returned to his Sydney apartment on Saturday.

The CCC had travelled to NSW to interview Tian about the $50,000 that has captivated Queensland politics and contributed to the downfall of one of the state's most popular politicians.

After they questioned him about the cash, Tian was brought to Queensland to face unrelated charges.

He appeared in the Brisbane Magistrates Court yesterday, charged with breach of bail and a number of outstanding fraud and forgery offences.
