Integrity Commission

The Tasmanian Committee
Tasmania

In other news, Tasmania’s Integrity Commission, which had been set up to investigate allegations of corruption and misconduct by public officers is under review with a parliamentary Inquiry hearing from the government that its investigative and law enforcement functions should be removed. The government submission argued that a number of other agencies were capable of carrying out the Commission’s investigations, including the Ombudsman and the police. In response, the Integrity Commission strongly rejected the government’s view, claiming that the government wanted to shut it down with Diane Merryfull, the Chief Executive of the Integrity Commission, noting that ‘as soon as an integrity commission starts to get some runs on the board ... the response is to shut it down’. The inquiry continues.
