Police deny burying truth as IBAC investigates
In a statement issued today the force said: “To be clear, this is not about burying the truth.”
As an anti-corruption IBAC probe into the police handling of the affair begins, Victoria Police have detailed their internal reviews of human source management.
“We are extremely mindful however of the need to meet community expectations of integrity and accountability in all that we do,” the police statement said.
“That is why we regularly review our practises (sic) in this area, and we do so in close cooperation with our oversight bodies, to ensure independence of review.
“This work cannot be done publicly because it would threaten the safety of our informers and witnesses.
“But the community should be assured, this work is happening.”
The statement goes on to say: “Specifically, in the past two years, we have commissioned an independent review dealing with human source management which contained recommendations about our human source management processes and governance.
“This review was conducted by former Victorian Police Chief Commissioner Neil Comrie and we provided documentation from the report to OPI as per our normal practice.”
The statement said Victoria Police had met with IBAC on Tuesday and “provided them with a progress report on the situation.”

Victoria Police is factually a corrupt organisation, which has been proven time and time again.
There is NO OBLIGATION to provide factual information whatsoever, as there is no Act to reinforce this.
Exposing Victoria Police's criminal activities is a start.
