Gerard Baden-Clay's father denies drug use

TRACES of the primary chemical in marijuana have allegedly been found on Gerard Baden-Clay's father during four recent prison visits.

News Corp reported that Wolston prison workers believed Nigel Baden-Clay was receiving preferential treatment because his contact visits were not restricted after the results.

An unnamed worker claimed contact visits were usually suspended if a visitor returned three positive tests.

However Mr Baden-Clay and his family have denied any suggestions that they were linked to illegal drugs.

Mr Baden-Clay's lawyer Peter Shields said "there was no real evidence" or public interest to justify running a story about the drug tests.

"Nigel Baden-Clay and his family do not use illegal drugs," he said.
