Oakden: 37,000 documents delay ICAC Inquiry report’s release

Published on

Independent Commissioner Against Corruption (ICAC) Commissioner Bruce Lander had planned to wrap up his inquiry into the now-closed facility, announced in May 2017, within six months, but had “a number of delays” after he received more than 37,000 documents with around 200,000 to 300,000 pages of information.

The news comes as three figures in the Inquiry dropped attempts to have their names concealed in the report due to be released on 28 February, with Commissioner Lander saying hiding their identities would make the report so vague it would “not be comprehensible”.

We understand why you would not want to be named.

Just last week, Australian Aged Care Quality Agency chief executive, Nick Ryan, was widely criticised after telling the Senate inquiry into the facility that his organisation could have done better, but it was not responsible for the abuse and neglect of residents.

“It’s the provider that is responsible,” he said.
