WA Corruption Commissioner says investigations should be kept private until a conclusion is reached
The head of the Corruption and Crime Commission in Western Australia says making investigations public too early could hinder the process and cause unnecessary damage to reputations.
It comes as New South Wales Premier Gladys Berejiklian resigned last week after ICAC launched a corruption probe into her secret relationship with disgraced former MP Daryl Maguire.
Commissioner John McKechnie said a similar corruption investigation in WA would be handled in a “far more cautions” manner.
“We are far more cautions about going public until we’ve completed an investigation and either found there’s no misconduct, or very confident there is misconduct.”
