Palmer PA to give evidence on fugitive nephew

CLIVE Palmer's personal assistant will be grilled in the Federal Court today over emails she exchanged with her boss's fugitive nephew to book him on yet another luxury cruise.

The taxpayer-funded liquidators of Queensland Nickel have subpoenaed Sarah Mole for questioning after an email trail emerged last month between her and the company's globetrotting former director, Clive Mensink.
