Former Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale is expected to face court in Brisbane on new charges.

Former Ipswich mayor Paul Pisasale is expected to face court in Brisbane for the first time since he was slapped with fresh charges by Queensland's corruption watchdog.

The Crime and Corruption Commission charged the 65-year-old with two counts of attempting to pervert the course of justice on August 3.

He was issued with a notice to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Tuesday.

Pisasale was charged with extortion and assault offences in June, just two weeks after he resigned as Ipswich mayor citing poor health.

Pisasale had been one of Queensland's longest serving mayors.

He was re-elected to a fourth term in 2016 with more than 83 per cent of the vote.
