The first round of the public hearings ran from 18 November to 6 December 2019. Hearings recommenced on 2 March and were adjourned on 17 March 2020 until further notice as a precautionary measure in consideration of public health.
IBAC may hold public hearings to gather further information as part of an investigation and to expose potential public sector corruption. An examination is not a trial and cannot determine guilt or innocence.
Proceedings of IBAC public hearings may be publicly video streamed (subject to the terms below) to make them available to more people, including those unable to attend in person. IBAC may mute or suspended the video stream at any time.
The video stream must not be recorded, copied, modified or reproduced, published or republished, uploaded, posted, transmitted, broadcast or rebroadcast, stored, distributed or otherwise made available, in any manner, other than with IBAC's prior approval. This includes video and audio recordings, and still images from the stream.
