On 25 and 26 March, the INSLM, Mr Jake Blight, conducted a public hearing as part of a review of the secrecy offences in Part 5.6 of the Criminal Code 1995 (‘Criminal Code’). Visit the secrecy review page for more information about this event. The INSLM thanks all participants for their contributions to this review, including those who provided written submissions and correspondence, and those who participated in the hearing. The INSLM’s intent is for the report to be provided to the Attorney-General in May; it will likely be tabled in Parliament in June.
