What's Happening Now
The Commission is currently reviewing the information it has received to date through written submissions, responses to ‘notices to produce’, and evidence provided in public and in-camera hearings.
So far, the Commission’s public and in-camera hearings have explored dealings between Nicola Gobbo and members of Victoria Police between 1993 to 2004.
The Commission will resume public hearings on Monday 17 June 2019.
The Commission’s fourth round of public hearings will focus on 2004 and 2005, including Nicola Gobbo’s dealings with Paul Dale, the Purana taskforce, and her handover to the Source Development Unit and registration as a human source by the SDU in September 2005.
Potential witnesses include Paul Dale (recalled); Tim Argall (recalled); Andy Allen; Gavan Ryan; Nigel L’Estrange; Mark Hatt; Michelle Kerley; Jason Kelly; Steve Mansell; Paul Rowe; Michael Dolan; Tony Biggin; Jim O’Brien; Dale Flynn; Stuart Bateson; Phillip Swindells; Boris Buick; and former Deputy Ombudsman, Police Complaints, Brian Hardiman.
While the Commission’s preference is to hold its hearings in public, it may be necessary to close parts of these hearings to protect the safety of certain witnesses and affected persons.
