THE barrister who asked Paul Pisasale to ferry $50,000 cash interstate on an urgent mission has conceded the rush job was not necessary.

In the latest twist in the ­bizarre saga in which the ­former Ipswich mayor was stopped with the money at Melbourne Airport, barrister Sam Di Carlo said the settlement for the legal dispute the cash was meant for still had not been signed.

That is despite the mistaken urgency of the money being delivered from China to Brisbane being key to Mr Pisasale agreeing to carry the cash at short notice.

Mr Di Carlo said misunderstanding and fatigue following an overseas trip had led him to incorrectly believe the settlement would fall over and his client could lose her home if the money was not paid immediately.

But a settlement still has not been reached more than a month after Mr Pisasale was found with the cash.
