The Western Australian anti-corruption agency is very uncomfortable every time its controversial actions are scrutinised, according to close observers.
The excellent CCC Exposed website reveals that the anti-corruption agency denies its targets use of legal counsel yet when probed by a Parliamentary Inspector that reviews the Commission, CCC staff refused to speak unless their taxpayer funded barristers were present.
It explains that the CCC has been exposed making completely false findings of wrongdoing against its targets including one respected senior WA public servant who the Commission accused of not disclosing he’d been lobbied by Brian Burke.
Red-faces all round when the Parliamentary Inspector found the Commission had ignored the existence of evidence that proved he had disclosed it.
You cannot find the truth through concealment and trickery. The Commission has clearly gone past its use-by date and ought be abolished.
