CMC statement in response to recommendations of a Review of the Crime and Misconduct Act 2001 — 03.04.2013

The Crime and Misconduct Commission (CMC) has noted recommendations contained in an executive summary of a report by an expert advisory panel established by the Attorney-General to review the Crime and Misconduct Act 2001.

As detailed in the executive summary, released today, it is recommended that the CMC Chairperson will be one of four people to sit on an Implementation Panel [Recommendation 17], also including the Public Service Commissioner, to implement recommendations that the State Government chooses to adopt.

That said, the CMC takes the position at this time that it is not appropriate to make any detailed public comment.

As to the question of public release of the advisory panel’s full report, the CMC has only requested that sensitive information not be released publicly.

The CMC provided extensive material to the advisory panel during the review process. Some of this information was confidential in nature, as it related for example, to ongoing investigations or operational issues in areas such as our Witness Protection function.

Redacted copies of relevant correspondence from the CMC to the advisory panel were provided which removed this sensitive information.
