ICAC Review

Sweeping changes have been  recommended by Bruce Lander, Commissioner, after the first 12 months. I attended a briefing on this last Friday.
Changes recommended include greater protection for whistle blowers from disclosure and victimisation. Of the 923 valid complaints that were made  only 71 of these were thought to be serious enough to warrant further investigation. Of these complaints only 19% related to local government and on the investigations only 13%. Considering that the state government was anxious to see this an ICAC in South Australia due to perceived corruption in local government this seems not to have been the case.
