Summary: Former IBAC Head Could Reappear Before Integrity Committee
Robert Redlich, former head of Victoria’s Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC), may be required to provide evidence before a revamped integrity and oversight committee, according to the committee’s chair, Tim Read. This follows Redlich’s claims that government MPs had directed consultants to investigate IBAC, alleging potential retaliation for inquiries into the Andrews government. Last week, the government ceded its majority on the committee in exchange for crossbench MPs blocking an investigation into Redlich’s claims. The Centre for Public Integrity, Australia’s leading anti-corruption think tank, advocated for Redlich’s claims to be a priority for the new committee, also suggesting changes to IBAC’s investigative requirements. The current committee is dedicated to enhancing transparency and integrity in government actions, with potential implications for corruption investigations in Australia.
