“In answer to my question on notice on the subject, the Attorney-General, Simon Corbell, told me that the ACT Government Solicitor spent almost $11,700, including $3,000 to counsel assisting the commission and $6,240 paid to the three judicial commissioners, whose commissions were terminated only one week after their appointments.
“On top of that, the Director of Public Prosecutions spent $7,161 on a legal opinion from the NSW DPP,” Mrs Dunne said.

Vicki seems to have been against the investigation ever being established.
Others might have preferred it was concluded and its findings made public.
