The Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) notes reports in the media this morning in relation to the complaint regarding the Deputy Premier. For clarity, the CCC confirms that, at this stage, it expects to conclude its assessment of the matter on Friday. This is consistent with the statement made by the Chairperson at the public PCCC hearing on 23 August 2019.
Further, the CCC confirms it recently advised both the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, and the Leader of the Opposition (who is the complainant), of the expected timeframe for completion.
It is not appropriate for the CCC to comment further whilst the assessment remains ongoing.
