On Thursday 6 October and Friday 7 October 2016, the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) will conduct a public forum to examine whether publicising allegations of corrupt conduct is in the public interest. The public forum was announced in June by CCC Chairperson Alan MacSporran QC.

Tomorrow and Friday a number of authors of those submissions will have the opportunity to discuss their views with members of the public forum panel.

The panel consists of:

  • Mr Alan MacSporran QC - CCC Chairperson
  • Mr Marshall Irwin - CCC Ordinary Commissioner,
  • Mr Richard Bingham - Queensland Integrity Commissioner and
  • Dr Rebecca Denning - CCC Director, Policy and Research.
