CMC Chairperson meets with potential whistleblower regarding medical misconduct allegations — 01.05.2012

Crime and Misconduct Commission Chairperson Ross Martin SC yesterday (Monday 30 April 2012) met with a potential whistleblower concerning a series of allegations related to medical matters that may reveal misconduct.

The meeting followed a recent decision by the Parliamentary Crime and Misconduct Committee to refer the matter to the CMC to investigate.

Mr Martin says the meeting was held to ‘help allay whatever concerns’ the potential whistleblower has about the handling of her information and to establish a framework for investigation.

‘I understand that whistleblowers can sometimes be mistrustful,’ Mr Martin said.

‘At yesterday’s meeting, I discussed a provisional arrangement for retired Justice of Queensland Court of Appeal, Richard Chesterman AO RFD QC, to conduct a preliminary assessment of the material, with the support of CMC officers.

‘This is not yet at the stage of investigation. Rather, Mr Chesterman will, with assistance, determine the detail of what the potential whistleblower can say, prioritise the many potential issues raised and provide a framework for any further examination.’
