Clive Palmer has raised eyebrows again with controversial comments surrounding his court case.

A 'dishevelled-looking' Clive Palmer compared the probe into the collapse of Queensland Nickel to "Nazi Germany" as he arrived at a Brisbane court to face another round of grilling.

He arrived at the Federal Court today clutching a sick bag and complaining of pain.

A spokesperson read out a statement on Mr Palmer's behalf, claiming he was being forced to testify despite his condition as payback for instituting a Senate inquiry into the Newman government while he was an MP.

"Surgery and intensive care, pain and duress, and currently on morphine, all confirmed by the court, regardless I'm dragged into the court today," he said.

"This would only happen in Nazi Germany."


Palmer is due to face questions over the collapse of Queensland Nickel, which folded in early 2016 with a massive debt of $300 million causing for almost 800 members of staff to lose their jobs at its Yabulu nickel refinery near Townsville.
