The report of the Board of Inquiry into the conviction of David Harold Eastman for the murder of Assistant Commissioner Colin Stanley Winchester has been released by the Supreme Court today.
The Attorney General, Simon Corbell, has welcomed the release today of the inquiry report.
“The report is a comprehensive and considered document and I thank the inquiry, Acting Justice Martin and his staff for the considerable work in producing the report,” Mr Corbell said.
“It is now a matter for the Supreme Court to consider the report and to determine what orders it should make as a result.
“As the report is now before the Supreme Court, it is not appropriate for me to make any comment about the substance of the report or the recommendations made by Acting Justice Martin.
“It is a matter for the court, as to when any orders are made.
“I acknowledge that the release of this report will be a matter of significant public interest for the community.
“It is important during this time that we recognise the concerns that will arise and distress that may be caused for the family of Assistant Commissioner Winchester.
“I would urge that these concerns be respected. The ACT Victims of Crime Commissioner is currently liaising with the Winchester family.”
