CCC to hold public forum - 16 August 2016

The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) announced today that it will hold a public forum on 6 and 7 October 2016 to discuss whether publicising allegations of corrupt conduct is in the public interest.

The CCC received over 50 submissions in response to a discussion paper titled Making allegations of corrupt conduct public: Is it in the public interest? Today, the CCC published those submissions whose authors had not requested confidentiality.

The public forum will be an opportunity to canvass issues raised in the submissions.

The CCC is of the view that publicly discussing this topic may help to identify a workable solution which addresses reputational damage as well as the protection of free speech, a fair trial, and the effectiveness of the CCC.

The CCC will announce further details about this forum in the coming weeks.

The submissions can be viewed on the CCC’s website by following the link below:
