Paul Pisasale, controversial former mayor of Ipswich, found guilty of extortion

The former Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale has been found guilty of extortion by posing as a private investigator to demand money from a Sydney taxi driver. Pisasale was convicted of two counts of extortion on Wednesday after his Brisbane district court trial heard he dishonestly demanded up to $10,000 from Xin Li. Yutian Li, Xin’s ex-girlfriend, and Cameron James McKenzie have also been found guilty of extortion over the plot in which the victim was threatened with court action if he didn’t pay up. Pisasale claimed he demanded money from Xin because it was “rightfully owed” to Yutian, a Singaporean woman the former politician made friends with after receiving escort services from her. Pisasale testified his attempts to extract money from Xin were to reimburse Yutian for financial losses she suffered when she uprooted her life to be with Xin only for their relationship to fail. He also believed Xin owed her the cost of the private investigation to uncover that he was married during the relationship.
